I was excited to find an inexpensive hotel in the Charlotte area for my wife, who has to travel there for work. The rooms are o.k. and the hotel is very quiet and in what seems like a very good business-like location. The first night we stayed ,I let my wife go up to the room while I tried to... More

Not too fond of this location but it was ok for the two nights we stayed and for the price. Room had a smell to it. The hotel itself need to be renovated. The rooms look like the pics posted just a little outdated. I think of you're just in town for a day or two and you're not trying... More

My boyfriend booked this hotel on his own, I had never been to a Candlewood property before. I'm always open to try new brands and I'm glad we ended up here on our weekend in Charlotte. Very clean room and the shower was amazing. The staff was very professional and helpful as well. We will definitely be keeping this place... More

For a great rate you gate to stay in what feels like a luxury hotel. I had a beautiful queen suite. I could watch movies while taking a bath. It was equipped with a refrigerator, stove top, microwave, and coffee maker. It also comes with utensils and pans. They have a lending locker that allows you to borrow movies, games,... More

We love Candlewood Suites everywhere, but this location was extra special. The staff is top notch from housekeeping to maintenance to front desk. I wish I could call everyone by name to give them credit, but the entire staff is so friendly and are so customer oriented. Sherry and Trevia have been especially helpful on this stay! I have been...

Spent about 9 months there, looking for a permanent home. Staff became like family, especially Tereza (sorry if I spelled it wrong).My kitty Meri was almost their mascot. Long or short stay, you can't find any place better.

We were here for the Southern Christmas Show held at The Park Expo & Conference Center, and since I had 9 free nights with IHG points, I decided this is the way to go to save a few $. The area was quiet, a couple of miles down the road you have a lot of restaurants and a really efficient... More

The check in was efficiently handled by the young ladies at the front desk. The employees were friendly and very pleasant. The room was clean and comfortable. The bed was very comfortable. The room is equipped with a kitchenette: 2 burner stove, toaster, microwave, coffee maker, full size refrigerator. I saved some money on meals, not having to eat out... More

After reading the reviews, decided to take a chance and glad I did! If you are looking for the Ritz, this isn't it. If you want a full continental breakfast this isn't the place either. If you want a clean, quiet budget hotel in a quiet area off the beaten path with great rooms, this is it! My wife stayed... More

My sisters and I came here for my sisters bachelorette party. We stayed for about 4 nights. It was a little hard to find, but simple once you knew where to turn. The front desk ladies were super nice and very sincere. We ended up being a little isolated, which worked for us! On the first floor corner room. We... More
