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.

I stayed here for a work conference. Our conference was located in the Henry Center, which is adjacent to the hotel. The location was extremely convenient. The rooms were clean and well appointed.

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! Wonderful staff and quiet accommodations rounded out an excellent stay for my pup... More

Lovely quiet setting on a golf course, just a 5 minute drive from Kellog Center Conference venue. Five minutes that is IF freight train schedule doesn't just happen to coincide with your commuting schedule. Just how many freight trains go through that area on any given day? Walking might be preferable since a strong walker can get from the hotel... More

The room was clean and well kept but has a strange smell to it. Maybe it was because were in the basement level. It was nothing to hold against the hotel or anything though. I would stay there again because the staff was very friendly and helpful.

I had an unfortunate incident with a clothing item during my stay there recently, but Will Cantrell, the General Manager, responded with great customer service. He was apologetic and properly rectified the situation. The room and amenities were nice as well. It was clean, spacious, and the bed was comfortable. I would definitely stay here again.
