“Trying to stay open on a shoestring.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013

That 'Just Open' sign in the photo above was probably taken about 10 years ago.
Building was in poor repair, had to use my shoulder to force open the door in its bent frame. Dust bunnies in the closet, fabric on the furniture worn thread-bare, broken garbage disposal (had to retrieve everything we put down there and put it in the garbage), toilet rocked back and forth like a teeter-totter, new diswasher under the counter, but we couldn't open it because the counter edge was too low. The swimming pool, was of course, broken. Queen bed turned out to be a double, and the whole bed smelled damp and old. Lock on the north end of the building was trashed, so the key card didn't work; an inspection looked like the insides had been removed. No breakfast on site, just a small 'store' selling over-priced ramen noodles, candy, and soup. At about 0100hrs, a pickup in the parking lot shared a loud concert of Tejano music.
Staff tried to be polite, and all of the complaints seemed sincere.
Sleep in your car if you have to, you'll be better off.

Room Tip: Keep looking...up the highway.

I had recently stayed at this Canlewood Suites for business. I booked 2 n/s rooms for myself and coworker $110 each room. The first room I went into stunk to high heaven of tobacco and the fake leather chair was completely ripped to shreds like a pit bull play toy. I reached for the phone to call the front desk and the phone fell apart. I went down and got changed to a n/s room. This room smelled of mildew and the chair was torn up like the first. Whoever is the manager of this property needs to go back to school or inform the owners that this is no way to run a hotel if they want return business. Stay at a motel 6 , save $35/day and save yourself from a serious bad decision. DO NOT BOOK HERE!

Room Tip: If your planning on spending $100 for a room, save yourself a headache and book elsewhere.

The AC leaked on the floor (dripping all night) and there were wires coming out of the wall. I asked for two extra pillows, they told me that the door to house keeping was locked and they don't have a key. I had to go to the Wal-mart and buy two new pillows and pillow cases. The gym looks nice, but the elliptical and treadmill both don't work!! There are three washing machines and two dryers (only one works). After talking with management the next morning she offered an upgraded room, which was nice (she was very pleasant and friendly). I accepted the room, only because the hotel we are switching to doesn't have a room available until Monday. I took pictures and will be emailing there corp. when I get home.

I expected more from Candlewood Suites! The picture on their website says Now Open, but it appears they've been open for several years. The carpet was dirty looking and sticky feeling, the bathroom needed an upgrade, and the large group of noisy construction workers was a bit of a turnoff. Also, we had tiny double beds....who offers double beds anymore?? Didn't realize until we checked in that they don't offer any kind of breakfast. As much as we paid, I expected breakfast! Wish we would have stayed elsewhere.

Horrible management!!! Tried to upgrade my room because of constant noise an music all hours of the night an the manager lied about having a suite available. Online I could book the room but when I call she tells me there is no suites available. The pictures they put online look nice, that is until you get there and everything is different.

My company has booked this hotel many times for many people.Some guys went home for the weekend, came back on Monday and found they had been "checked out" so they could rent the room for a night. Even though the company had reserved and paid for a couple of weeks. At least the night desk clerk was helpful to call around to other hotels for room. This happened Three Times to my co-workers during my last three week stay.

the Air Conditioner in my room leaked condensate all over the carpet. Unfortunately, one of my bags was there. And the room had a mouldy smell before this happened, so I am guessing it had happened before.. There are three washers & two dryers... go figure..!!

Try to avoid..

Room Tip: any room at the Holiday Inn should be better

Stayed here for two nights. I had a one-bedroom suite (separate bedroom). The Hotel is on Hwy 69 and I was in a suite at the front of the hotel so I did hear traffic from the road. The hotel needs a good cleaning in the area in front of the hotel. The lobby is clean and the rooms are clean. There is a kitchen, living room, bedroom and bathroom. The one bedroom suites only have queen beds. They have no king beds in the hotel. The rooms and furniture are very basic. There is no complimentary breakfast. There is only housekeeping every 7 days. If you need clean towels or sheets you have to take them to the front desk and exchange them. There is a pantry with refrigerated and frozen food. There are coffee makers in the rooms and free coffee in the lobby (weak). The front desk personnel were nice.
We changed to the Homewood Suites just a few miles away and for the same price as the Candlewood we got a one bedroom suite with a king bed, free breakfast and a free dinner meal.
