“Going to Candlewood Suite was a trip saver!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2011

We were stuck waiting at the airport in Montevideo, Uruguay for three consecutive days due to the presence of volcanic ash in the air from a recent eruption in Chile, which closed airports from Santiago to Buenos Aires to Montevideo. We watched our week long reservation evaporate daily. We had car reservations and a prepaid week at the Candlewood Suites at Miami airport West. Thankfully I was able to get in touch with Leslie Barrios who was working the front desk and asked her to please be kind enough to talk to the General Manager: Pieralberto Raccuglia and see if he would understand the situation. She kept in contact with us during our three day wait in Montevideo. We had stayed at this particular Candlewood Suite for our business trips to Miami for the last couple of years. We always enjoyed the amenities (like the free laundry, morning newspapers and a nice selection of groceries at very reasonable prices). This trip, thanks to Pieralberto and Leslie, we were checked in early as we arrived in Miami at 5:00. Leslie had our room ready and we got some needed sleep. We were able to just complete our business in the next 5 days thanks to the efficient staff who always were able to direct us to where we needed to go; and in keeping our mail and correspondence which we had forwarded in anticipation of our arrival. We changed to Candlewood Suites thanks to the personal attention which the staff has always offered and the added room size, so if you are like us and have lots of purchases or luggage you will not feel cramped and be bumping into everything as in other hotels. We cannot give this establishment and their staff a higher recommendation and we just found out on this stay that they also have a nice sized heated swimming pool with a jacuzzi as well as a work out room. Thanks to all the staff and especially to Pieralberto, Leslie, Eurica and Stephani for all those extra touches which made our stay delightful.

Despite being in the final approach of MIA airport, which produces quite some noise during the day (less at night, due to less traffic) this is a wonderful maintained and clean place.
The price is very fair.
The fridge and the AC unit are noisy, but you can turn it down/off for the night, the rooms stay nice an cool anyways due to the good structure of the building.
spotless clean bathroom, room and kitchenette.
All utensils in Kitchen, microwave, fridge, stove where like new and functioned well.
Internet is slow, but free.
Parking is free, seems save and well lit.

My Fiance, Daughter and myself stayed here for two nights. The rooms are decent as long as you tidy up first! Their shower head in the first room was leaking and about to fall out of the wall,we had to switch rooms due to a dog barking from 6:00 a.m until we moved at 12:00p.m!In the second room there was an aweful smell and the carpets were saturated..I hope with cleaner!?!? So needless to say we moved on to the final and third room where it was still a bit musty, but opening the window helped the smell, just didnt help with the constant airplane noise!! in this room there were 4 large dead bugs in plain view, if it had been cleaned they would have been found and also the shower head issue in this room as well?!? So if you like Bugs, Airplane noise and non stop barking dogs... This is the place for you!! If you would like somewhere nice, friendly and CLEAN then turn left out of the parking lot, go right at the light and then turn left into the Inter Continental Hotel!!

Room Tip: Turn around and got to Inter Continental Hotel!

I noted a vieuw of the revieuws and sometimes i am wondering if the people who are complaining check out the hotel on internet before they visit the place.
If you want topservices and you do not want to spent a lot of money then you have nowedays a problem. However with candlewood you will receive a lot free.
First of all the staff was wonderful. and when i say wonderfule it means that to. I am travelling alot and i can tell you i had never any problem with this location. Then free parking : wow . In miami beach you are paying easeliy 20-30 usd dollar a day for the bed of yr car.....

Rooms they are good. And ver honestly: what do i care if a cabinet is not upto the latest fashion. It is not my house. It is a hotel room and most of the time i am not there.

Rooms are always clean and once i had a issue with internet and it was solved witin 5 minutes.

For my work this is the best place. Very central. But if you bring yr wife: shopping mall are very nearby.

And no inhouse breakfast place: wow. first of all who needs a breakfast place in miami with all the cuban places around. then if you want a snack you have a system dwonstairs which is wunderful Based on honour systm so you can buy a soda for just usd 0.50 where else can you do that.
then for lunch an diner so many great places on walking distance that it is unbelievable.

While the name includes Airport, it takes still quite a drive to get there. In the middle of the night with low traffic, it is ok actually.

I just stayed for a overnight stopover while starting my roadtrip. The room is functional, but I had hard time to move the fridge to switch it off as I need quietness for sleep. The bed was comfy and there was also working desk. Kitchen side was well-equipped, if someone would like to cook something.

There is no breakfast as it is more like a residence hotel, but at least parking was free and the internet too.

On check-out I could spin a lottery wheel and won 200 extra points. Other prizes could include icecream, candy-bar and some other small things.

I was a little nervous after reading the reviews but it seemed to fit well into our budget, close to the airport so we wouldn't have whiney kids after traveling all day (stayed with a 3yr old and 11mo old), and the booking process was really easy so we went for it. The rooms are a fairly good size. Plenty of room to put a pack-n-play in the room with you. Bed was very comfortable! Large bathroom and big desk in the living room with a good size kitchen that even has a dishwasher. The rooms were clean and staff was nice. It isn't going to be a 4 star hotel or anything but it is a great value for the money. From what I can tell people must pay a little and expect to stay in the ritz. It was also nice and quiet. The airplanes do go right over you but we really didn't hear them and we were on the 3rd floor. The pool is a bit small but it does it's job. It has an honor system store downstairs which is nice with kids to be able to run down and get a little snack. Also free laundry which is a must with kids! I would stay here again.

Travelling for business picked the cheapest from the list of hotels my company recommended and, what a dissapointment. I had to call to have my room cleaned.
Which they actually touched up but did not really clean. They do not pick up the rooms everyday.
Everything looks cheap, old, smelly an dated all around. The hallways are darked and creepy. There is no bar or lobby treats like coffee or other.
i am not staying at these chain hotels again.
