The rooms are on par for the candlewood level. No complaints but it is not 5 star hotel nor is it intended to be one. Jacksonville NC doesn't have a ton of options and does book pretty quickly so you have limited options. The hotel is ok but keep your expectations on par.

I an awesome time they let me check in early due to my flight being early the front desk staff was awesome they answered all my requests the room I stayed in was clean and the bathroom had hot water. It was even great they accept pets I watched my sons dog while he was busy with wedding plans and the staff live my son's dog. I would definitely recommend this place and heads up to all staff that helped me.

I stayed at this location for a whole week since I was in town for business. Upon walking in; I was hit with an odd smell. I figured maybe it’s just the lobby. I checked in and went up to my room but still the smell persisted. I got into my room and wanted to cry. The dishwasher was rusty down to the floor. The bathroom wasn’t all that great either just really old. The place didn’t strike me as clean. As the week went by I noticed the other guests there definitely looked more like long term homeless people who sat around outside smoking all day. There was a guest with an extremely huge pit bull who was living there and scared the hell out of me. I decided to check out the gym; turns out the “gym” is just a few machines and free weights squished into the cafeteria/laundry room. People were coming to buy things and gawking at me trying to workout. After this experience I will never stay at another Candlewood. The smell in that building made me sick for days.

I had to stay here for 2 weeks for business. I travel frequently and have stayed at candlewoods in the past. I’ve also stayed in older but well maintained candlewoods. This is definitely old but not maintained. Everything is torn, dirty and most of all smells terrible. My room smelled so badly - even candles wouldn’t cover it up. Apparently there is a new manager who is very nice and is trying. They have a table set up in lobby with juice, waters and cookies which is a great idea. All staff were extremely nice and friendly. But apparently the owner of the hotel will not invest for improvements to his property based on the decrepit condition. Do yourself a favor and head to mainstay suites the next block over. Cheaper and much ckeaner

DO NOT STAY HERE My husband and I stayed here originally in room 411, I walk in and it looks nice, the heater made an awful smell but no big deal. I lay my 4 month old daughter down to change her diaper and roaches crawl out of the bed, from behind the table AND the walls. Absolutely horrible. I go down to complain, they apologize and tell me that matinee isn’t here until Monday, this happened on Saturday night. So she offered to move us to a different room on the second floor. My husband went down and turned the room upside down and didn’t find any roaches, it smelled a little bit better as well. Originally I was pleased until I began putting out things in the fridge and three more roaches ran out from behind it. The next day, five more found in the kitchen and one crawling up the wall. We moved hotels right after at 1 AM, absolutely horrible customer service and cleanliness. The bathrooms are also horrible and had mold falling from the shower curtain and the shower head. Yes this may be a good deal to stay but unless you like the smell of weed in the hallways and roaches crawling around your food, id find somewhere else to stay.

Hi Lexy R, Thank you for choosing our hotel for your travel needs and for sharing your experience. I do appreciate your positive remarks on our room design and decor. Although it is with dismay to learn that the overall room cleanliness was an issue. We always make sure our accommodations are pristine prior to guest's arrival, forgive us for the shortfall. I am sorry your family had to go through this challenging ordeal. I'd like to ask more information about your stay, so I can forward to the hotel management about this matter for internal training with the housekeeping team. I sent you a private message. Again, thank you for your review and for being our guest. I look forward to your response. Best, Zel N. Case Manager IHGService
