We were lucky enough to get a room here. We had called at the last minute and they had 2 rooms left. They were very helpful in giving us directions and when we arrived the staff was friendly and helpful. We were very surprised when we got to our room and it has a full size fridge, stove top burners...

My daughter and I spent one night at the hotel for a college visit for MSU. The property is clean and well maintained. There is nothing sexy or lavish about this place but is solid and clean. If you are planning to visit MSU, this your place to stay for clean and affordable place.

Driving up to the building it was not obvious where it is located the sign is not visible from the road as you would expect. Not going to have much drive up traffic from a highway. Drove past it the first time. The property is clean and well maintained but the fragrance from cleaning is very evident. Was tough for...

We were visiting Michigan State University due to serious cardiology and internal medicine tests being performed on our 10 year old dog. Not only did Candlewood Suites deduct the pet fee, for both our patient and his canine brother, but reduced the price of the room as well. As wonderful as this was, it actually got better. We weren't sure...

The room is great and very convenient to catch a bus on weekdays, as the bus stop is just opposite of the hotel front parking lawn. I enjoy my 12 nights stay there. However I think that the management need to have some housekeeping cleanliness standard issue whipped up. My circumstances are as follows: Upon checked in, I notice that...

I stayed here for a training with MSU. Everything about this hotel was awesome. The staff was very helpful, the room extremely comfortable (I loved the fluffy pillows and the comforter!), and the little kitchen was a nice touch, even though I didn't need to use it. The wifi was easy to connect to and was fast. I didn't use...

I have been to this candlewood multiple times for business-related purposes and adore working with the staff here. Recently my parents came to town for a visit and stayed and they're still talking about it a month later. Service is fantastic, the mini-kitchen was exactly what they needed, and being connected to the University Club is a definite bonus. All...

Husband and I decided to get a hotel over Christmas rather than stay at the parents' - and I'm glad we did! While I originally wanted to stay somewhere more closer to downtown Lansing, we decided on the Candlewood for the price. It couldn't be beat for the rate! We really appreciated the kitchenette as well - came in handy...
