“Nice stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

Good location. We had a room on the odd side of the hotel which backed up the the turnpike. Quite loud in the room. Was late and didn't want to deal with moving.
Room was clean beds were excellent. Internet was fast. Staff was efficient and friendly.
Overall good stay

Room Tip: even number rooms should be quieter.

Spent the last weekend(5/30/14-61/14) at this hotel. Was our first stay at this hotel but not in Williamsport(we come here every 2 years while my husband works in DC as this is about the half way point for us to meet). We traveled with a teenager and a pet, so the king suite worked well. Un happy that there wasn't a grassy area for me to walk my dog other than a small spot by the grills. The A/C for the room really didn't cool the separate bedroom so we ended up wal-mart to buy a fan. Pool says indoor heated, the room the pool is in is very warm but the pool wasn't. The hot breakfast was shared with the best western so that meant we would have to go to the next hotel over(short walk) to eat. My boys opted to sleep late and we went to Denny's. Check-in/out staff was very friendly as was the housekeeping staff. King bed was comfortable and my son was happy on the sofa sleeper. The kitchenette was great also we bought some snacks back after our big day out. They also offer a late check-out which we used so we could a few minutes longer as a family.

Room Tip: Many restaurants within walking distance. Also ask for a room on the back side of the hotel although...

We picked this hotel because it was the closest "nice" place to Cherry Springs State Park (approx. 2 hours out.) The place has studio-style rooms with kitchenettes and also has a gym and free laundry machines there.

If you're planning on camping out up there or are doing a longer roadtrip, this would be a great oasis. You could save money by cooking for yourself in the well-outfitted kitchenette and maybe get through some of the laundry for long trips.

No complaints - good location (off highway), great amenities for people looking for quality on a budget and nice staff.

Note: Make sure you look at the Google Maps view before driving there - the location is behind another hotel off the main road so it took us a few minutes of circling to locate the actual place.

The location is easy to get to and handy to fast food and the highway. It's quiet--not a lot of noise from the highway. The fridge was useful, and there is a free breakfast provided across the parking lot at the Best Western. This is not a fancy hotel, but it was clean and quiet. The downside was the bed was just OK and the bathtub drained slowly. Room cleaning is just every 3 days. For ambiance, pick a b&b or downtown hotel. For cost, pick this one.

The Good: The hotel room was clean; access to a kitchenette is great, particularly for longer stays; the lending libraries and honor system for the snacks is a nice touch; location is good.

The Bad: The stairwells were dirty; if you are sensitive to smoke, the smokers gather at the front lobby of the hotel, so it's not the most inviting welcome; Amenities state "spa" - there is no spa here. There is a "heated" pool that is supposed to be 80 degrees, but it was cold.

The Ugly: We typically stay in 3 and 4 stars, but are on an extended road trip and didn't want to drop a grand on hotels, so we went with this 2 star hotel through "Express Deals" on PL.

Having just encountered this in our stay in Hazleton, upon check-in, they attempted to provide us with a single queen bed. I hadn't slept the night before at our CW Suites room and my heart sunk when we booked this "Express Deal" through PL and this hotel's name popped up. The front desk personnel told us she could not change the room we booked.

After calling PL, she phoned the front desk at CW Suites and was told we would be charged $65 additional dollars to "upgrade" to a room with two beds. So, we'd be paying double for our $90 hotel room once taxes were added for a two star? NO THANK YOU! PL basically relayed that we were out of luck if we didn't pay the additional $65 and the PL customer service rep said that the hotel was charging us too much for the room. The front desk then phoned her manager and was told she could change us to a king sized room. This hour long ordeal was frustrating and seemingly deceptive.

I've never stayed in a hotel with only one bed that isn't a king. Most often, there are either two beds or a king. PL's express deals policy is that the accommodations will accommodate two people. The only circumstance most people wish to a share a bed with someone is when you are with your partner. However, what if you don't want to share a queen bed with your fellow traveler, as when you travel with a co-worker or any other person who isn't your partner?

I'm not sure who to be more disappointed in - Candlewood Suites for offering what feels like deceptive practices of offering one queen bed to accommodate two people or Priceline for allowing them to do that? I've never run into that issue at any other hotel until these two Candlewood Suites locations.

Room Tip: Confirm bed choice before booking!

On my recent trip to Williamsport, I stayed in the Candlewood for a business trip. The hotel was very clean and Laurie at the front desk was very accommodating. The hotel is very close to several restaurants and within walking distance of the Friday's Restaurant. The price was
just right and close enough to the downtown area. .
