We chose this hotel for it's location (only reason it got it's second star to get to a "poor" rating vs. "terrible") close to Mount Vernon so that we did not have to travel far after spending the day with the Washington's.

It's decently priced, the rooms are very nice, but the clientele honestly leaves something to be desired. And the barking dogs in the rooms beside you can drive you nuts. I'm surprised and disappointed that this is allowed. I was also disappointed that they messed up my wakeup call. Still, this is a nice location, and the staff tries pretty... More

I checked into the Candlewood Suites on Mon, 6/13/2016. I arrived around noon and was notified by the front desk receptionist my room wouldn't be available until around 3:00 p.m., which was no problem. I figured I would go have lunch and come back. However, prior to leaving I asked the receptionist to point me towards the restroom in the... More

We were visiting relatives and needed to find a pet friendly hotel. It was a difficult task as hotels in Alexandria are either booked or very expensive. Candle wood Suites was a great choice. It is located right on route 1, so is very convenient to everything. The rooms are well equipped with small kitchens, it is fairly new so... More
