Candlewood Suites here in Miramar Beach is truely a home away from home. Management and Employees treat you as if your family and make sure to acquire all your needs. It is an extended stay type of hotel with a full kitchen and some suites even have a seperate bedroom. In our case helped give the feel of home rather than a hotel and being stuck in one room on two beds.These rooms are very spacious and clean. Be sure to get to know Charlie,Kieth and Jamie as they will go out of there way to make sure all your needs are met. Thanks charlie!

Room tip: 3rd or 4th floor on the north side of building has views of the sound. "bay area" very nice!

Thank you for taking the time to let us know what you enjoyed about your stay here at Candlewood Suites. We truly are located in Paradise and we are so glad that you chose to vacation here with us. We do consider you our family and want you to feel at home while staying with us. Our one bedroom suite is such a perfect room for a family, or someone staying for an extended amount of time. It is very spacious and has an "at home" feel to it. The bay located behind the hotel is absolutely beautiful and we are so glad you were able to experience it. We hope you were able to make some time to visit our sugar white beaches as well. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Excellent pet friendly property. The staff were friendly and very helpful. Our room was great -- we had a suite with a nice sitting area - very comfortable recliner, with a work bar that separated it from a nice kitchen area with full-size refrigerator, small cooktop, microwave, and dishwasher -- great set-up for a long weekend stay. The pet walk area was convenient at the back of the property and well stocked with pick-up bags. The pantry near the lobby is stocked with reasonably priced snacks and drinks -- very convenient. Within close walking distance were an excellent sushi restaurant (Sushimoto) and a Melting Pot fondue restaurant. Great place to stay if you're working on Eglin or to visit nearby parks in the area!

We are so happy to know that your stay with us was so pleasant. We love when our guests bring their pets to stay with us. We hope you helped yourself to some of our yummy pet treats! Having the desk in the room is very helpful when you need to get some work done. Hopefully, you spent more time enjoying our beautiful area than you did working, but we are glad you were able to put the work space to good use. Our guests really enjoy having the full kitchen in their rooms. The Cupboard has so many great choices to help you utilize the kitchen and also great for a quick snack on the run. Sushimoto and The Meltiong Pot are absolutely wonderful restaurants. It is so nice to have them in the same parking lot. It's nice to be able to walk there without having to get in your car and drive to a restaurant. Thank you so much for taking the time to let us know what made your trip such a great one.

The room was excellent and well as the price. I could not believe it when I walked in and there was a full size refrigerator, microwave and dishwasher. There was also a stove top and garbage disposal. Not that we needed these items but this would definitely be excellent for an extended stay. The room was extremely clean and well designed. Although we were only there for one night we would absolutely stay again.

It's so nice to see our local friends staying with us! We appreciate your business and hope you continue to take the short drive over to enjoy our beautiful piece of paradise. We definitely have a lot of extended stay guests due to the full kitchens in the room and the several amenities that we offer. It is useful whether you are here for a week or month, but also for the overnight stay. We are proud to offer clean and fresh rooms to our guests. We have a wonderful housekeeping and front desk staff that works hard every day to make sure your stay is the best. Please let us know when you have family or friends in the area and we will be glad to take great care of them.

The big drawback for me at this property was the front desk staff. So unless you’re unfortunate enough to get the same person, your stay is likely to be excellent. I stayed in room 313 a queen bedded studio suite.

PRO's:

• Full kitchen (no oven) with 15 cf fridge, stovetop, micro, dishwasher with solid surface counters
• Modest size tile bath was clean. It’s nice to have soap larger than a “Chicklet” to wash with.
• 32” flatscreen with DVD. DVD’s are available at front desk
• Good lighting
• Small grocery store on main level for nighttime snacks, drinks, desserts, etc
• Price
• 2 sets of dishes with silverware to eat with.
• Close to Premium outlet mall and restaurants in case you feel compelled to lighten your wallet. The beach is also nearby, go there instead. It’s cheaper…

CON’s:

• Inattentive front desk staff. I had a shipment arrive ahead of me (which I was unaware of) and it sat at the front desk until I asked for it the next day. I also had a fax come in and wasn’t called to say it arrived.
• As an extended stay property, there seemed to be a disproportionate number of small children running the hallways occasionally. Overall, not a big deal.
• Unspectacular bedding. Hard foam pillows.
• Internet connection slow at times. Repeated log in gets frustrating.

WORK AREA
• The work desk was good size, with a mediocre chair. 4 outlets for electronics

Breakfast/Food

Not provided, as each unit has a stovetop and fridge, eat as you would at home. No problem there, plenty of stores nearby.

SCORE: This is an excellent property. I tried not to penalize it too much for the poor performance from the evening front desk clerk. It definitely affected my stay, but is less likely to affect yours.

I would give this property a 90/100 overall and a 100/100 for value. I would likely stay here in the future
