We stayed here for two nights while visiting family. The facility was quiet, no hallway noise at all. The bed was average, nothing great. Room was spacious, bathroom was functional. The cost was a little above what I would have liked to pay, but it was a holiday weekend. The pantry was OK, but expensive. We did not use the... More

Dear penquin2k I have discussed your stay with the staff, it is unfortunate that we did not provide you the service that is expected from out hotel. Debit cards and banking can add to the headaches, however I am happy we were able to balance everything out in the end. I hope the dog show went well. More

Staff was extremely friendly from our arrival to checkout. The room was found to be extremely clean and full of amenities. At night, it was super quiet. And on the bed, we had a very comfortable sleep. It was a wonderful place to stay. We highly recommend it.

Stayed here for a couple of nights. After reading other reviews I had higher expectations. Our room needed some time with maintenance. A light bulb was out in the bathroom and the paint was peeling off right above the shower. The floor also did not look like it has been swept since the last guests in the room. The beds... More

My husband and I stayed at the Candlewood when we were in town for a wedding. It is a relatively new hotel, and everything was very clean. The bed was comfortable, and the towels were of a good quality. Although we did not cook in our room, we enjoyed having a full sized refrigerator. The people at the front desk... More

As others have noted, there's a lot of great things to be said of the hotel. My room was spacious, very clean, and incredibly well equipped. It came with full size fridge and freezer (with automatic ice-maker), kitchen sink, dishwasher, and stove top. The cabinets were stocked with plates, silverware, glasses of varying size, as well as some basic cooking... More

It was our first time at a Candlewood Suites, and we will be back! Initially, we thought we'd be disappointed without a continental breakfast or a pool, but we were wrong. The service was excellent, we loved the cookies and coffee/tea/cocoa, laundry was free (detergent cost 50 cents), and what food or other supplies we needed was also inexpensive. The... More
