We stayed here twice during our trip as a stopover heading to ME from Il and back. Both stays were great. Very clean and well-maintained and beds are comfortable. We so appreciate being able to have our two dogs with us. Price was reasonable, too! We plan on staying at a Candlewood Suites again in the future!

From the moment we arrived, we felt like this was our home away from home. We were in this hotel for 7 nights and couldn't have asked for anything more! It was very clean and the location was perfect. It's very close the highway and several great restaurants. The market was convenient for snacks and coffee. The best part was... More

The accommodations were clean and comfortable. The girl at the front desk was pleasant and helpful. The room was quiet and the location could not get any closer to campus. Would recommend . The room was an efficiency and was cozy

We enjoyed our stay here! After driving up from Toronto for a girls weekend, my friend and I were comfortable and thoroughly enjoyed our room. As an extended stay hotel, we could have easily been content spending more than 3 days here. The staff was helpful and polite and the suite was clean and spacious. Our only complaint was that...

Kudos to GM Jacqueline Lewis. Though, I was not staying at the Candlewood they treated me as if I'd stayed there every year for the last 10 years. Ms. Lewis was kind, patient and welcoming. I will definitely be booking my next stay at the Candlewood thanks to her hospitality. The hotel I was staying at informed me that they... More

Impromptu weekend getaway to Niagara Falls led to a last minute booking @ the Candlewood Suites. Check-in was super easy, was recognized as an IHG rewards member and given a special tip for parking at the Falls and awesome directions (which, by the way, were spot on and super helpful). The property is clean and well maintained from the parking... More
