“Excellent Value for Money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

Just completed a 7 day stay. The hotel works very well for us. The independence of being able to cook our own meals or go out as we wished. Easy access to the main highways to all parts North and South. A range of shops, malls and restaurants within a two mile radius. We ordered a number of items online before we travelled for delivery to the hotel. Emailed the front desk to say that we were expecting packages and would they hold them for us. Got back a prompt and friendly response assuring us that the packages would be held. They were awaiting us on our arrival and we discovered that packages pour in every day for collection by guests.The hotel is well geared up to handling this.

It is what it is. A two star self catering hotel. I would rate their facilities as three star however and the front desk staff are very friendly and helpful. When we were leaving and indicated that we would be back at some future date they volunteered that they had started an upgrade of room furnishings and that we should expect some improvements on our return. Not that we had any complaints with things as they are now.

We found this hotel at the Holiday Inn page and for location. It's clean, quiet and the neighborhood nice, however, the service it provides is not hotel style, that is, room cleanup is only once per week and the room they provided to us was with a single queen bed, having to ask for a sofa or roll-a-bed at extra cost, so for the total price we could have gone to a nicer regular hotel. No restaurant on premises just a small convenience shop next to the free laundry.

Dear tron38us,

Thank you for your your review of our hotel. We are glad to know that you found our hotel to be clean and quiet.

I am sorry to hear your issue with our housekeeping services. We are an extended stay hotel and rooms get serviced once a week to ensure guest privacy. However if you need it daily, that can be arranged for a nominal fee. I understand that this concept might not work so well for some. However most of our guests are long term and it works out quite well for others.

We rely on you, our guest, to let us know how we are doing so how we can better meet your needs. I have taken note and wish to thank you for all your comments.

Sincerely,

Dhan M
Case Manager

Everything we needed at a short distance, nice staff, comfortable room, towels and linens were very good. All was clean. No noisy guests, no parties guests. Familiar place to stay. Good price. Safe area, close to Doral HQ Police. No locker inside the room. Cupboard is very helpful at a good price. Honest place to stay. We'd stay again.

My wife and I stayed here a total of 4 nights while on vacation. I was recognized as a Priority Club member at check-in. The rooms are nice.......the extra space provided by having the separate living area was nice. The full size refrigerator was a plus as well.
Pool area was great. Nice pool with hot tub as well as a covered patio with BBQ grills for guest use.
Free washers and dryers and a well stocked pantry was an added plus.
Only cons I'd note is that the hotel is in the flight path of MIA. This was noticeable really for us only when outside at the pool. It did not bother us nor wake us when in the room.
Nice area with restaurants within walking distance.
We stayed 1 night at a $400 resort in Key West as well on this trip. This Candlewood Suite was much better!

Room Tip: There is only 1 elevator. Elderly guests might want to request a "higher" room.....for ins...

The hotel is located in a wonderful area by the airport and a few miles away from the ports and South Beach. There are tons of eatery and shopping in the area. The hotel is clean and has lots of amneities including a store, workout room and free laundry. The staff is friendly and the grounds are lit and safe. Will stay here again!

Room Tip: Get a room facing the park as its a nice scene and the breeze feels good.

Located in a quiet, corporate type area, other MIA hotels nearby. About 15-20 minutes to MIA and/or car return, but priced lower than nearer hotels. Good size mini-suite...clean, but could use a little reburb. NIce gym, free washers/dryers (a very nice touch), and 24 hour honor system convenience store. Outdoor pool also. A perfectly acceptable place to stay.

We stayed at the Candlewood Suites recently after a long transatlantic journey, for one night, prior to continuing our journey by road.

There were good points and bad points. Let's get the bad out of the way first…..

The hotel was "tired". It could really do with a facelift.
When you check in, they make a big point about it being a non-smoking hotel. You even have to sign to say you agree to a hefty charge if you disobey that rule. As soon as we went into the room, there was a very obvious smell of stale cigarettes. The window was open, like they were trying to clear it, but there was no missing it.
The sink in the bathroom was falling off the wall and, when you used it, water dripped from the waste pipe and formed a puddle on the floor. The sink was not set in any kind of unit, so there was nowhere to put your toiletries. There was also no hook for robes.

Now the good points ….

The staff were really pleasant and helpful. When we brought the faults to their notice they offered to move us to another room. We declined, because our son was in the room next door and we wouldn't have had adjoining rooms had we moved.
The hotel is extremely convenient for the airport. Despite being so close, aircraft noise wasn't a problem. You could hear them, but the large refrigerator in the room made more noise than the aircraft. Talking about refrigerator .. the rooms were amazingly well equipped. The refrigerator was a full size fridge/freezer that would be suitable for a family home, let alone a hotel room. The kitchenette had a sink, dishwasher, 2 ring hob, coffee maker, microwave, toaster. Coffee, tea and microwave popcorn provided. Even kitchen towel. Pots, pans, utensils and cutlery. Washing up liquid and dishwasher tablets were provided. There was an ironing board, iron and hairdrier. There were even tissues, spare loo roll, soap and shampoo/conditioner.
The bathroom had a very nice shower.
The layout had a desk, office chair & breakfast bar.
There was a telephone, very good internet and TV, VHS/DVD combo.
Blackout curtains ensured a good sleep.

Other facilities (that we didn't actually use) were an Exercise room, Laundry and Pool.

The rooms appeared to be disabled friendly.

Yes, the hotel has it's problems, but for it's amenities and convenience, I would use it again.
