3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

Enjoyed stay here despite the nonsmoking rooms were overwhelmed by the smoking rooms. peaceful until its packed and filled with unsupervised disrespectful children. above floors can get very loud with kids playing and running back and forth its very loud. Can open windows to try and get fresh air flowing through the rooms. housekeeping staff is not invasive here . DO NOT DISTURB SIGN is respected here. free washer/dryer and decent gym ,indoor pool, BQ area. staff is polite and helpful . rooms are spacious enough for long term stay. stove top burners and full sized kitchen with good pots and pans here. would return!!

Room Tip: please be considerate to other guest and make your children behave. not the place for them to run wi...

Thank you for your review. We are sorry that you experienced noise during your stay. We ask that you please let our front desk staff know of any issues that arise so we are able to resolve them in a timely manner. We do not tolerate noisy guests! The good news is, we will be going 100% smoke free in December. We would love it if you would come back and stay with us again the next time you are in Bismarck!!

Sincerely,

Sara S.

Booked this hotel through holiday inn priority club at a high rate. Hotels are just hign in Eastern North Dakota, due to greed. I wouldnt pay over $100 for this hotel if I had a choice. Room was nice, fd was nice, good parking. Nothing special, over priced.

Was greated by a attenative staff that made me feel welcomed. A nicely maintained motel inside and out. Comfortable, clean rooms, beds, etc. Nice workspace for computing although lacking in extra outlets to plug into at the desk without crawling under the desk to plug in. Good internet/connections speeds. No meals served, but I had a nice small kitchen with adequate cooking/utensils, etc to work with, good size fridge/microwave and stovetop. Wash dishes in the in-room sink. They have a small store downstairs if you don't feel like running to Walmart or a grocery store for food. The area was peaceful with a lot less traffic than I am used to. Will definately stay here again if the travel plans take me back to this area.

Dear Rsfmd1,

Thank you for your comment. I apologize that the services offered at our hotel were not what you expected. We really appeciate our guests' feedback and use it to identify what can be done to improve our hotel as well as recognize the things we are doing right. Candlewood Suites as a brand are pet friendly hotels. However, there is no need to worry about cleaniliness of rooms, as we do professionally shampoo the carpets and deep clean the rooms after our furry friends have checked out.

I sincerely hope that the next time you are in Bismarck that you will give the Candlewood Suites another try.

There is a lot of nice amenties about this hotel. It is super clean. The staff is exceedingly nice. The internet works great. A nice little cooking area (wal-mart is across the street if you want to dine in.) Great little work out room. The bathroom lighting and shower are all good. And...they even have "plug-in's" outside for your car in the winter time.

Here's what I didn't like: $129 per night! We are in Bismarck for cryin' out loud. No breakfast - not even coffee in the lobby...all you get is cheap Maxwell House coffee in your room. They only change your sheets once per night. No manager's reception - nada. For what you "get" at $129 per night, it's not worth it. One other note - other than the Subway at the Wal-Mart, if you don't have a car, there is nothing around here and they do not have a shuttle to take you anywhere. Then again, you can buy something from Wal-Mart and cook in your room. The Fairfield Inn down the street is about the same price and you get the same - plus more.

They have a great property here...but it is way too expensive for me to stay at again.

Room Tip: All rooms have really thin walls...recommend you ask for a top floor.

Its new and they keep it very clean. Really modern and spacious rooms. Pool seems to be too cold to swim every time we go. No breakfast.

There are some positives, but there are definitely a lot of negatives that even those out.
Positives:
1. Full kitchen (although much smaller than other Candlewoods I've been to).
2. Staff very helpful and courteous.
3. Free laundry!
4. Comfy bed.
5. Free DVD rentals.

Negatives:
1. Biggest complaint - Paper thin walls!! I got awoken every morning by 6am because the person in the room above awoke at that time. I do not think the person was trying to be loud, it's just EVERYTHING s/he did I could hear.
2. Small gym located in the same big room as laundry so it can get real hot if someone turned off the AC.
3. Water was not consistently hot.
4. Room small for an extended stay. I've stayed at Residence Inns, which are extended stays, and they rooms are very very spacious.

Overall, I would not mind staying here again. But since the noise is the biggest problem, I would opt to stay on the top most floor.

Room Tip: Top level room
