“Very pleasant stay, excellent value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2012

We stayed here during a visit to my son who is in Buffalo for the summer. The hotel is very clean and our rooms were nicely appointed. Even though we only stayed the one night, the fridge came in handy. The only complaint we have is that the air conditioning unit was really loud and my friend who was using the sleeper sofa had a hard time sleeping. Also, the only AC for the bedroom in the suite was provided through a small in-wall fan that was intended to move the cold air from the AC unit to the adjacent room. On the 95 degree day we had, it really came up short and the bedroom was quite warm while the living room was freezing. Other than that, the common areas are nicely maintained and the exercise room was great. Overall, a very nice stay and excellent value. Front desk staff was extremely helpful, too.

Stayed this hotel for 8 nights during a hockey tournament and camp. Served our needs perfectly! A nice clean and comfortable room, a full size fridge, microwave and two burner stove.

The free use of laundry facilites, comlimentary BBQ on Tuesday nights and access to the amenities at the Double tree Hilton were wonderful touches!

Excellent proximity to Northtown Ice Centre and University at Buffalo. Lots of great restaurants and shops within minutes.

My bf and I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights for his business trip. Their reception area is very welcoming and clean. There's this girl with dreads at the front desk that helped us and she was very friendly and accommodating. Since we researched all over Buffalo and its surrounding areas for hotel, we knew that there were no maid service for this hotel. Since we usually tidy up after ourselves, we really didn't think it was a big deal. The room was very clean, no odors of any sort. Kitchen was thoroughly cleaned even the microwave and the fridge. Bathroom was also spotless. The pillows do seem small, but if needed more, you just go and pick up some from the front desk. There is no swimming pool, but you are allowed to use the swimming pool of the Hotel right in front, which used to be Hotel Indigo.
There are many restaurants near the hotel which was a plus, if you have a car. There is also a mall less than 5 minutes away. If you do want outlets, there is one 20 mins away by a local road.
The one thing that made me choose this hotel is their laundry facility which is free. If looking for an adventure, there's this Whirlpooljet boat tour and its only a short drive from the hotel. Over all, we had a pleasant stay at this hotel. Will definitely stay at this place again.

This was our second time staying at this hotel. We visit family in the area and need a clean, basic place to sleep. The Candlewood fits the bill. Price is right, location is good. Not a luxury place, but we weren't looking for that. It was comfortable and clean. Didn't need the full kitchen, but it was less expensive here than other area hotels. Pleasant check-in and pleasant staff. Will be returning when next we visit the area.

For the price they offer is amazing. Great service. Great suites with full on kitchen. Great location.
Cons: beds were a bit uncomfortable. Ice in freezer wasn't refreshed when checked in.
Otherwise it's good enough for a homey refreshing stay!
Happy travels!

Stayed here for an extended weekend to visit family. The main reason we stayed here was the hotel's excellent pet policy. It was only a flat fee for 1-6 nights per pet rather than most other places which charge a nightly fee per pet with weight restrictions. Another perk was the full fridge and two burner range top. We didn't take full advantage of them on this trip but could see ourselves applying them in the future to save some money by cooking in for a night or two. It is true that the housekeeping service is weekly, not daily, but unless you live like a slob, that shouldn't be too much of a problem. The room was a tad stuffy when we arrived and I was saddened to see that the window only opens to about 4 inches but it aired out in a short amount of time regardless. I was continually surprised by how quiet this hotel was. It does not appear to have the tissue paper insulation that most hotels do. I don't believe I heard anyone out in the halls, nor did I hear our neighbors (top and sides) for our entire stay. Yes, there are some amenities missing from this hotel (no pool, breakfast, etc. )but for us the convenience and most of all, the QUIET, especially when traveling with pets far outweighed anything that might be missing.

Nestled among other hotel chains, this property is good but not great. 3.5 stars would be a more accurate rating.
Service was good, not great. There is no breakfast here, no pool/whirlpool, but small gym and a little snack store. The hotel does have a free lending DVD library, good choices.
This rating is based on past experiences at other properties vidited in the US and Canada.
