When searching for a Pet Friendly hotel traveling with our Chocolate Lab, we were continually directed to La Quinta Inn on the web. After some reviews regarding roaches, we canceled and looked at the alternative. Candlewood Suites were pet friendly with a non-refundable pet fee of $75. We calculated it by the day and it was very reasonable for what we were about to be pleasantly surprised of the amenities that this hotel had to offer.
The room was equipped with a full sized refrigerator with ice maker, large new GE microwave, dishwasher, and 2 burner stove top. The cookware was commercial quality and being a chef and in the hospitality business my whole life, I was pleased.
The Operations Manager Ali, was all about customer service protocol. I am a very critical traveler because I am in the business. He was attentive, had good relationships with his staff who were very courteous and respectful. The goal of making a person feel like they are at home away from home was certainly achieved with this visit. My friend who has a temporary assignment in Galveston at UTMB decided to stay at Candlewood rather than another competitor. The kitchen offers so much more opportunity to eat healthy, make your lunch and dinner and not have to eat out all the time. When you travel a lot, eating out gets old.
The other great surprise is that they offer free laundry services with commercial washers and dryers.
The fitness room has high grade equipment.
Oh, did I mention the pillow top mattresses and high quality bedding and towels.
The location is great as it is close to everything but not so much in the middle that you can't have your space.
Free daily papers. Pool. New flat screen TV's. DVD loan library and gas grill outside. And there is even a toaster oven upon request.
Wow, it has been a great stay. I honestly could live here for a long term assignment and be very happy.
At Candlewood, you really feel special.
