Candlewood Suites are extended stay properties and the only reservation that we could get. Because they are extended stay properties there are travelers but there are also people who are on public assistance who live there. We were there for two days the 4th and 5th of September. The room was clean and the individuals at the front desk were... More

Was extremely pleased with the service and being right across from the hospital was an added bonus. The employees were very helpful and friendly. Pool area was clean. Towels in that area would be helpful.

This was just a one night stay on our way to Captiva Island for vacation, but a great, quiet location. So quiet our cab... More

Had a medical procedure at Health Park early am. Needed to get sleep and up early. No sleep most of night. Got up 4am and left for hospital. I'm sorry for this review but the timing was not good for this stay. The staff was great at check-in.

We would definitely return to stay there if we needed to. I would have any of my familystay there. Loved that it had a kitchen and big bathroom. It would save a family alot of money on not eating out.

Booked on IHG for 89$ (5000 pts bonus rate). Checked in and room was ready. As most Candlewood, they have suites with full efficiencies. I had a bachelor with a queen bed, full kitchen, work area, large LCD TV and DVD player. The room was a bit tired, but overall, in good shape. Average sized bathroom. Free wifi. There's loads...
