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

Had never stayed in a Candlewood Suites before but glad we did. Saw on here many positive reviews and thought this would be a good place to stay as it was exactly half way home... More

My husband and I planned a trip to visit friends in Amherst and wanted to visit Niagara Falls too. My husband and I searched for an affordable, pet friendly hotel in the area and we had stayed at CWS in Virginia and we knew we had to come back. The staff was friendly, the room was clean, and Rudy loved... More

I will say that the cost made me a little suspect of what I was actually getting. But I must say that my family and I were blown away. The room(queen suite) was clean and spacious enough for the four of us and our two dogs. There is a $25 surcharge per dog for the stay. I reviewed a lot... More

Having come from the Syracuse Candlewood on Baptist Rd., by far the nastiest Candlewood I've had the misfortune to stay at, the Candlewood on Flint here is like night and day.

I wish this hotel brand was available when I traveled during my corporate career. Great concept, better than most extended stay places. Anything you need on business or vacation is available.
