Since I am a smoker, it was nice that they had a gazebo area for us smokers. No pool at property , but was informed we could use the pool next door, but didn't find the... More

We stayed only one night and everything was great. Check-in was easy, girls at front desk really friendly and helpful, hotel was clean, and there was lots of parking. We had a fourth floor room away from the elevators and it was quiet. I love long stay hotels because they have kitchens so you can buy a few things for... More

Thank you for the great review! It sounds like you had a great time and I'm glad to hear that you found everything clean and quiet and in working order, and could take advantage of the kitchenette. Our comfy beds are the standard US 60x80 queen bed, but I understand there are now Extended/Olympic size queen beds that are 6... More

Stayed two nights this week at the Candlewood Suites in Amherst. I always check reviews first, throw out the crankies, and temper the over-the-top's. This was my first stay at one of these IHG properties, but based on the two nights, I just booked again for a mid-June stay. The crew was friendly and helpful, the place was immaculate, my... More

This is a nice mid range hotel. the rooms and overall facility are clean and fresh, the staff is nice and although there is no pool on-site, they have pool privileges next door at the DoubleTree. Very good for extended stays with an in-room kitchenette and on-site laundry facility. We would come here again. Ray and Jan Holland, Ohio

I stayed here for 3 nights when I was presenting at the University at Buffalo. It was a wonderful stay. The dishes came in handy to have a nice mug of tea in the morning instead of a to-go cup, and the microwave popcorn was an added bonus. Location wise, it's less than a mile from a major shopping strip... More

While Candlewood Suites are designed for long-term stays, this hotel is also perfect for one or two nights. My family and I stayed only one night while we were in town for a concert, but I could have easily seen myself staying there for a week or longer. I am definitely a Candlewood Suites fan after this stay. The entire... More

We stayed at Candlewood Suites for one night in January 2016. Parking was conveniently close to the entrance. Check-in/out were fast and convenient, with very friendly and attentive staff. Our room was spacious and very clean. Although we did not need the convenience of in-room major appliances, it came with a full-sized fridge, dishwasher, microwave oven and a two burner... More
