Stayed here for a meeting that was held in the attached center. It is a clean hotel and my room was large with a bedroom, living room, kitchen and bathroom all separate. The staff was very helpful. The only issue I had with this hotel was with location. This hotel is far from anything. There is a bar and restaurant... More

This is one of my favorite hotels to stay in. I will definitely be back for business! There is a spa and golf course connected to the hotel. Friendly staff, clean rooms and close to MSU. Be sure to check it out!

Our room was comfortable and absolutely spotlessly clean. The decor was modern and sleek. The complete kitchen had all black appliances--even a dishwasher--that looked as if no one else had ever used them. Breakfast was not included. We did not use the restaurant, pool, or fitness center, which were in a separate building that was on the same property, but... More

The hotel was mostly good. The room was nice and comfortable and the parking was convenient. One thing to keep in mind, is that while the hotel is at MSU, it's the agriculture part of MSU, so you are not near restaurants or other amenities. If you want to be near farms or their executive MBA program, though, the location... More

Also has nice gym, again when open so one needs to check before. OK for the university but a little out of the way for East Lansing,but not far but too far... More

The service and staff were great and rooms were relatively spacious. There really isn't anything walkable from the location but next to a country club so if you are a golfer its great, or if you are visiting the university it is very close.

The staff at Candlewood are always so kind and helpful and pleasant. They go out of their way to help. I love the rooms, very comfortable and spacious. The beds are a little uncomfortable but I like everything else so much that I deal with it. The setting is peaceful and quiet. I will stay again.

It was a wonderful stay! As someone who detest hotel rooms, I couldn't have been happier. It was clean and very comfortable! The manager welcomed us with cookies and a card! We will definitely be returning each time we visit our son at MSU.

This type of hotel is always a pleasure for someone who travels extensively. The fact that Candlewood doesn't charge for washers and deters is definitely a perk. I found the Lending Locker a GREAT surprise, what an incredible idea! Sure wish more corporate housing chains did this!
