Stopped by with the kids on our way from San Antonio to break our drive to Dallas. The hotel seemed new and very clean. The front office staff were pleasant but quite business like. The room was comfortable and the full kitchenette welcome and well kitted out which explained the absence of breakfast. An ok Oasis on the '35.

I recently had the pleasure of visiting San Marcos for a women's conference with my church. We were able to stay at Candlewood Suites and although it was only one night it was a night of comfort and relaxation. There was not a Continental breakfast due to a complete kitchenette in the hotel room. If I was to stay there... More

Thank you for the review Sarah! We always appreciate the feedback. I am happy to hear you enjoyed your stay for the most part. As we do try to accommodate early check ins, unfortunately we cannot always get the rooms ready early, but I do apologize for any rudeness you may have encountered.

Not the cheapest but great value. The hotel is clean, has big rooms with lots of extras like the mini kitchen. Nice bathroom. Friendly staff . fast wifi . Larger than average swimming pool. Compared to other nearby hotels the room was smelling fresh. One minus point is the lack of breakfast.

Great location in proximity to Texas State University. We were there for graduation, and were able to miss the main crowd coming in off I35. Rooms were clean. i35 is currently under construction. Our room faced the interstate, and to no fault of Candlewood, the noise was obvious all night. I would stay there again should I have need to... More

Lots of room to stretch out! Everything you need from home from your kitchen except an oven. Other than that you can cook on the stove top or microwave. Includes dishwasher and full size fridge. You can also purchase at their "cupboard" in the lobby any basic items/food you may need. Outdoor Pool, workout/weight room, laundry, and pets are welcome.... More

This is one of the few hotels that actually understands the term "suite." Their suites are really suites, as apposed to one big room with a partial room divider. When you're traveling with adult children, you want and need that. Fairly new, very clean, with a large kitchen.

I was visiting a supplier in town, and the Candlewood Suites was conveniently located. The room was clean and well-organized. The bed was comfy. If I ever head that way again, I'll probably stay in a hotel that offers breakfast just because it's easier. That was the only downside though.

We really enjoyed our stay here at Candlewood Suites. Everyone we met was very friendly and quick to smile (even the man working behind the desk at the 2am greeted me with a warm smile when my dog insisted to go outside).
