This is my 5th stay and 3rd TripAdvisor review of this hotel. What can I say, I like this property, I have yet to have any real problem of any significance here at all, every stay has been enjoyable and I'm not necessarily an easy person to please.
I'll just give you the pros and cons of this hotel.
Amenities galore, DVD player, dishwasher, garbage disposal, full size fridge, 2 burner cook top, etc and all in 100% good working condition, not something I can say about every Candlewood and I have stayed in a ton of them all across the USA.
You can actually open the windows all the way..!! Far, Far too many Candlewoods have restrictiors on them, where you can only open them 3 or 4 inches, I guess so you don't jump out and kill yourself.
QUIET. No kidding in 5 stays I have never heard a peep from any other guest during my time there. Not to mention while this is technically an 'airport' property and I have never heard a single plane ever.
Beds. All Candlewoods use Sealy Posturepedic mattresses but not all are created equal believe me. Some are old, worn and hard as a rock....not these here though...theirs are still very soft and plush.
Cleanliness and location, both excellent.
Free laundry room is small but the machines are fast and work well. In fact everything seems to function well in this hotel someone needs to give the maintenance guy a raise because that is rare in my experience.
Security. Hotel has a security company that patrols the parking lots, yes it may not prevent vehicle break in's 100% but they do patrol the Candlewood very frequently, I saw them many, many times during my stay, so that certainly helps.
Wireless internet. It's not horrible, speed tests showed 2Mbps downloads which is decent but it still really bogs down later in the afternoon. I never had any problems streaming video from Hulu or Netflix though so all is good.
Toilets. The toilets are bizarre, they flush with the sound and fury of Niagara Falls, yet can't take a single piece of TP down in one flush...lol. Not to mention you wake up everyone in the room if you go to the bathroom in the middle of the night.
The parking lot gets very full, if your arriving late don't expect to get a close spot
My room had 2 queen beds yet only 1 measly chair to sit at the table and eat, that's just asinine. All rooms should have one hard back chair and one desk chair, mine must have been removed from some reason, which was a pain because there were 2 of us in the room. So only one person could sit at the table and eat, the other had to sit in the bed or the recliner.
Those are the only con's though and considering I stayed here on a 5000 Points Break stay I'll take that any day. 5000's points is the steal of the century for this property IMO.
