Stayed 9 days due to a death in the family. The hotel was clean and comfortable. The staff friendly. Great location to walk to restaurants & bars on Penn Ave. "Full size" refrigerator, with ice maker, in the room (didn't use the microwave or stove). Good for a longer term stay, great location even if you're only there a couple... More

I use Candlewood suites a lot and I am generally happy. This visit to reading,pa had some kinks,but most were taken care of. First ,all visitors must know there I'd major traffic construction in front and of and all around hotel area. The city has created the most confusing traffic pattern.

The best thing I can say about this location was the beds were very comfortable and the room was very clean. There were a couple issues that prevent me from really recommending this location. Getting to the hotel, you have to take run the block, as there are no left turns allowed. When I arrived, I was greeted to an... More

I travel for business about 45 weeks a year. Maybe my expectations have become too highbrow, but this establishment does not meet my needs. The evening staff is terrific and very accommodating. They have solved every minor issue I requested. The morning staff, if I can find anyone, isn't involved in any kind of customer satisfaction. I received my checkout... More

We stayed here during a recent jazz festival in the area. The suites were large and we had a separate kitchen and living area. Staff was welcoming and friendly. We used the on site store for a small purchase. The only thing missing was an indoor swimming pool. Very nice location.

I had never stayed in one of these establishments until now. I love that everything is so convenient. They have a mini grocery store in the lobby and the items were very reasonably priced compared to other hotels who offer the same thing. Most importantly, the room was very clean and comfortable.

Visited Reading for an association dinner and decided to stay over rather than drive the 1.5 hours home. Candlewood was the closest to where I was and since I am an IHG Rewards member I booked the night. I have never stayed in a Candlewood Suites and must say that it was awesome. Definitely geared for the traveler staying more... More

Hi FM6, Our guests definitely have great view of the City of Reading and Pagoda! It is a beautiful skyline to look out over at night. I'm glad you were able to enjoy it as well. I apologize for the late night trains, they've been running on those tracks for many, many years. Hopefully the trains did not disturb you... More
