“Great Value for the Price!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2013

Looks like a run of the mill hotel from the outside but was pleasantly surprised to find a full kitchen, huge closet, desk/table, reclining chair and large bathroom! Staff was incredibly nice at check in. This was a quick, one night stay for us but would most definitely look at staying at this chain again!!

Great location, clean, quite and a wonderful staff to boot. You can't go wrong here. We were there for only 1 night, but they sold me on looking for a Candlewood in locations that we will be staying longer in.

I had to be in the area for business. Having never stayed in a Candlewood Suites before, I booked this based on the reviews. I am glad I did! Check-in was smooth and friendly. The cupboard room was always well-stocked and the prices were reasonable. It was refreshing to actually see something on the honor system in today's cynical world. The coffee available 24 hours a day was of the instant kind but was very good. No complementary breakfast, but I was able to fix my own in the room.

The room I had was very large and comfortable with all the conveniences of home. There is a Wal-Mart about a mile away so I bought groceries to eat breakfast and evening meals in the room. Wi-Fi was pretty good. I got a better signal by hooking into the LAN. One of the best perks here was free laundry facilities for guests. My wife was very happy with me for washing all my clothes before flying home!

Overall, this is a great place to stay. The only minor negative point I can speak of has nothing to do with the hotel itself but of getting out to get on the main highway. If you are leaving between certain hours, you cannot make a left turn out of the hotel. This forced you to take a right and either make the block or a make a u-turn to get to the main road. Really wasn't a big deal, but like to give a heads up.

I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Only stayed one night but found this hotel to be clean, well priced, and having everything needed to stay longer. Staff friendly. Area safe. Free washers and dryers-a plus when you travel. Would not hesitate to recommend to anyone.

We needed a place to stay nearby while in the area on business. This was the perfect spot! The hotel personnel were terrific and friendly. The room was spacious and had all of the amenities you could want in a "home away from home" to include a little kitchenette area complete with fridge, microwave, sink, coffee maker and stove top! They even supplied dishes and utensils. The room was clean and the beds were very comfortable. There was even a nice reclining chair set up by the television to make you feel like you really are at home settling in for a nice quiet evening after a long day. It is in a very convenient location with plenty of shopping and restaurants nearby. It is also off of a main highway so traveling to and from was quite easy. We would definitely recommend for a short or long stay. If you join the rewards program there are also some nice perks attached.

Room Tip: No room choice could be bad here. It is far enough off of the road so you really aren't bothere...

Nice clean hotel with plenty of places close by that we needed...especially a Walmart. The staff was friendly, the room clean, beds comfortable, & of course the full kitchen with all the amenities we needed. We washed our clothing on our last evening (comp washer/dryers). We had a flat screen TV & nice desk area. We would stay here again.

The Candlewood Suites is new and is coming up to a year's anniversary.

The front desk staff was great, cordial and very helpful. Gave recommendations of places to eat and sites to see in the area. The room was clean and amenities were just like home i.e., plates, glasses, flatware, coffee pot, dishwasher and more, to accommodate a long stay, which we did (10 days). Kudos!
