“good place for a night or longer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

Very friendly helpful staff. The room was spacious and comfortable. A nice desk, lounge chair and flat screen TV. We loved having the small kitchen, which was a good cost saving to be able to fix our own breakfasts.
The towels could use some softener when they are washed. They feel like cardboard.
If we come this way again we would definitely stay there again

Room Tip: Our room was on the backside of the building so we never heard any traffic noise.

This was our first stay at a Candlewood Suites. Booked the VERY inexpensive studio suite with 2 double beds, anticipating cramped quarters. Not so... very spacious and comfortable for a studio. Attractive, fully supplied kitchen, FULL sized refrigerator and freezer with ice maker, full sized microwave and dishwasher. A huge selection of TV channels including HBO. FREE use of laundry facilities.

Cleanest bathroom I've seen in years of hotels and motels, even compared to rooms I paid three times as much for. Everything polished and gleaming... not even the buildup of grime in the corners of the floor that I had started to think was just inevitable in hotel rooms. Nice, soft, thick towels.

Complimentary fruit and coffee in "The Cupboard". A nice, welcoming touch was a free bag of microwave popcorn left in the microwave along with a serving bowl.

Both staff members we met were very friendly and helpful. We'll stay here at every opportunity. If the McAlester Candlewood Suites is representative of the chain, I may be booking them instead of the Choice Hotels group I'm accustomed to booking, from now on! Could not be more pleased!

We were in Dallas visiting our grandson- left his house at 6 pm and wanted to get in a few hours on the road to make the second day of the trip back to Illinois a little shorter Didnt want to spend much money because we would get to the hotel around 10 pm and leave first thing in the morning So what a surprise this hotel was-darling little room with a kitchen, very clean, cute little bathroom Just very nice all the way around I highly recommend it

A great place for a stopover in Mcalester is the Candlewood Suites. I received a friendly greeting when I entered, got to spin the wheel for a gift, and was given the key card to my room quickly. The room was wonderful and had a exercise room to use after driving all day.

I stayed here one night and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and quite even though it is right off of the highway. The room had a very nice flat screen TV with a large selection of channels to watch. When I come back to McAlester I will stay here.

Since January 1st I have stayed at hotels for a total of about 90 days. This location ranks as one of the best. Very, very clean throughout and a staff that was warm and friendly. HD cable TV with almost too many channels. Lots of premium channels too. Located right off of the Hwy but very quiet and close to many good choices for eating. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: Make sure you get the size bed you want. I messed up and got a queen bed and we are used to a king...
