I'd give it 5 stars but 2 of the 6 free use clothes dryers were inoperative during the 2 weeks I was there. When asked, they said it was a supplier problem...well, they need to get a new supplier. Two weeks is too long to fix something in the competitive hotel business.

We had an opportunity to stay at this property for two nights while visiting family in Ft Myers. The staff was very friendly & accommodating. The property location made it very safe & quiet which allowed us very restful nights. Our room was clean & we loved the mini kitchen.

This hotel for some reason always has a dramatic domestic show going on. If you can put that aside, its a short ride to the beaches and in the opposite direction shops and restaurants. The kitchen is convenient to have if you're on a budget and prefer eating in. Rooms are clean and staff are friendly. Hard to find since...

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.

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.
