I stayed one night at Candlewood Suites July 6, 2016 with my daughter and her service dog and it was wonderful. The desk staff was very pleasant and accommodating to my request for a handicapped room but only had one with one bed. We tried it but decided it would not work and agreed to take a normal room with... More

The gym was very nice and clean. Complimentary coffee in the fresh market and our room was equipped like a small apartment. Full size refrigerator with freezer top. Full... More

The staff is friendly and helpful but the room was just adequate. It was showing its age and was not aging well! The property is dog friendly which is a plus but the centipede bites I received were a minus. Obviously not high on my list for a return visit.
