5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2009

Stopped off in Candlewood suites for 1 night after being in Tampa and a cruise.....Very surprised about the price which we thought was excellent....We had been dining out for almost 2 weeks and just wanted to have a night in.....Rooms are not luxury but were perfect for the price....Kitchen, separate bedroom...2 TVs...video......Pool and hottub area were clean (pool and hottub are very warm)....There was a gas Bar-B-Q if you wanted to use it......which we did.......videos at reception if you wanted to watch one in your room.....Little shop which uses an honour system....Free use of washing machines and tumble dryers.......We had a fab stay and would not hesitate in staying again....Very friendly staff......5 mins from two large malls (international and dolphin).....30 mins from airport, 30 mins to south beach (by car).....However this is our perception of the hotel, hope it helps..

Stayed there for 4 night, got 2 room suite, great experience. Plenty of space, loads of storage room, very helpful amenities like microwave and full size fridge with ice maker. Very clean and well located, wasnt disturbed by plane noise, maybe during date time, might be annoing but we wasnt spending days there - we were on Florida vacations, not need to spend more time in hotel then nessesary. Very friendly and helful front desk stuff. Will advice to everybody.

We stayed here for a night before catching a flight. After having stayed in a nice apartment in orlando for 2 weeks this was a bit of a come down! We stayed here because it was the cheapest place we could find in a 'safe' area, however, it wasn't that cheap and the area was not great either so we were disappointed.
The suite room had a small basic bathroom, a small bed with very itchy covers and behind the bed it was really black and dusty, and the kitchen in the room, even though well equipped just looked bad and we had to figure out how to switch the fridge off as it was very noisy. This is also an airport hotel, so i can't really see how many people would actually use the kitchen when just on a brief stop over so is it really necessary? The actual location was probably one of the safest places around the airport. There were a few nice restaurants and bars down the road that you could probably walk to, but it would probably be better to drive at night! (the hotel had guidelines about being careful when going out to the car park alone at night etc so that scared me a bit!). Fine for a airport stop over but thats all. Not that nice at all really and certainly not worth the money paid for it.

This was my husband and I first trip together and just the beginning of many trips to come. We love the place we flew in through Ft. Lauderdale, we wanted to get the chance to drive through the city into Miami "a little site seeing". You can shop or go out to eat because everything was like 5 - 10 minutes away. The front desk helped us a lot and believe me they seen my face more than enough. The girls at the front desk was wonderful and so nice. We just couldn't get over the free movie rentals so we can watch at night and the fact that it had a laundry room down the hall was great. Who wants to fly back home with dirty cloths in their suit cases, I know not me. The bed was so comfortable sometimes you didn't even want to get out of it. The rooms has a full kitchen, and excercise room down the hall if you wanted to tone up a little. I thought the area was quiet and the planes flying over the building are not loud at all, well not to me they weren't. We enjoyed the stay so much there that the third day of our stay my cousin and her friend at the last minute were flying in from out of town and she hadn't booked anything. I immediately went to the front desk and reserved her room she was so happy when she flew in the next morning that her room was all ready for her and the price was not bad at all. I would definately stay at Candlewood Suites again.

Very average place but has a good bedroom, with kitchen and all the basic appliances. Perfect for a budget travel, with a car is close to everthing in Miami.

Although it's ideal for an extended location (because each room has a kitchen) we stayed only three nights and it was just fine.

It's next to a big park where you can go for a walk, and a three minute drive to several frequently used highways in Miami. It's in a light industrial area which is fine, but there are very few stores or restaurants in the area; so you need to know where they are and drive to them.

It would also be fine for families with children.

My husband and I stayed here for a week. The room size is decent for the pr ice you pay. The bed isn't the greatest. The pool is dirty. The internet is wired. We discovered that our tv was only getting 8 channels out of 50 so we called the front desk and the person told us that it was the whole hotel and not just our room. When we had other questions about anything, the front desk could not answer them because they couldnt understand us (did not speak enough english). A member of the staff came 3 mornings in a row at around 8am and woke me up for no reason and when I got up to answer the door he was gone every time. Once he came and just let himself right into the room while i was sleeping. I dont care if i didnt answer the door, he had no right to come in with out permission.. This just went to show that they allow their staff in rooms at any time (no he was not a cleaning person and if he were there was a do not disturb sign on the door) which means who knows what they could be doin.. its not the greatest neighborhood so i could easily see someone stealing something out of our room. Its right next to the airport so if you care about the noise.. do NOT go here.. planes fly over non-stop and their are loud trucks (semis and what-not) out all hours of the night making tons of noise. I wont be coming back here.
