The negatives: We drove around twice looking for the entrance. (There was some repair work being done). There was no breakfast provided, not even a continental breakfast; no... More

Dear padrercw, Thank you for taking the time to express your concerns with our property. Unfortunately the Candlewood Suites brand does not offer a breakfast included with the rate. However, there are special rates that do include Cupboard Bucks. Which allows you to pick out some items from our Cupboard for just a few dollars more on your rate. Again... More

I love the Candlewood Suites all of the amenities, the location and the STAFF. We usually stay for a few days when we're traveling South for vacation. Candlewood offers the convenience of allowing family/friend visit us at the property, we grill a little, have wine outside pool side and/or privately in our room. You have the option of grocery shopping... More
