“***PLEASE READ***”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

I have stayed here a few times in 2012 and each time was satisfying. Restaurants and mall within 10 minutes or less. Staff members are attentive, down to earth, and respectful. Afterall, you treat others how you'd like to be treated. I've traveled and stayed in enough hotels to gain knowledge of the different types of hotels and their ammenties (people need to do their research and understand hotels have different owners, which means it's not going to be the same everywhere). And this hotel is convenient; simple and clean. Also, with a kitchenette (because it's an extended stay type, including complimentary popcorn, coffee, tea, and utensils), it's very accommodating. If it's slow, feel free to ask for an upgrade. Not guranteed but it's okay to ask. The suites are spacious with a large table—thankful for when you have a lot of paperwork and what not. I know of high volume hotels that are in bad shape and still expect a guest to pay $130+? Bogus! I have my standards, but Candlewood is one to make me humble. Downfalls would be how they don't offer complimentary items, say if one forgets their toothbrush; however, there is a gift shop on site. Also, I'd say it's more for business stays—no pool/hot tub. But there is a fitness room. I believe there is a laundry facility and it may be of no charge. I know I've been to one Candlewood and they didn't charge, which is nice. One thing, as a traveler, tip. Someone else is cleaning up after you. Even though I had to wake up early in the morning to get to work, I had 15 seconds to at least grab my used towels and throw them in the tub—as a thank you for making my stay comfortable. Never complain if it's unnecessary. If you're ever unsure if you want to stay somewhere once you've arrived, ask for a tour. Or unsatisfied, don't hesitate to speak up. Let's be realistic here, you know a bad worker when you see them. But I've grown to recognize and build relationships with hotel staff and they're oridnary people just like us catering to our needs. I hope this review helped and goodluck in finding a hotel that best suits your needs! Don't forget to enroll as a member. It's free and who wouldn't want to accumlate points for spending their own money?

We recently stayed 4 nights at the Candlewood Suites in Appleton, Wisconsin. The staff was so friendly and helpful. They have a little "store" and give you $4 "scrip" to spend there on the honor system. All the food items are the same price as a grocery store and perfect for the microwave or stovetop. Kitchen has plenty of pans, dishes, etc. We had wanted a place where we could make all our breakfasts and maybe a small lunch if necessary. This was perfect for that. Our first impression of the suite was its cleanliness. The suite was a little more compact than we expected but such a value. Beds a little better than okay but the pillows were GREAT. We spent most of our time visiting family so were not in the room until evening. It is walking distance to a dozen great restaurants if you wish to eat out and actually, if nice weather, it is walking distance to the Fox River Mall. We really loved this charming little motor inn. And again, the staff was so friendly and accommodating. We will definitely go back.

Don't forget that your room will not be made up each day. The woman at the front desk was very nice! The hotel is basic and not too expensive for a place to stay not too far away for a Green Bay game. Go Pack Go!

I have stayed at this hotel twice now & love it. It is a extended stay hotel so the rooms have full size fridges and microwaves in the rooms, which is nice even when staying for just one night. The location is very close to shopping and restaurants. Beds are very comfortable. I will definitely stay here again when traveling to Appleton!

My original stay was for 4 nights, which turned into 5 due to a flight delay. More on that later.
EVERYONE at this hotel was so friendly, so helpful and service-oriented! From the 1st greeting at arrival, to every pass of the front desk in and out, to the maint. guys, the housekeepers and the Gen. Mgr. (I forgot to write her a letter after my stay...)
The only reason I have given 4 stars instead of 5 has nothing to do with the staff or cleanliness, it is due to the age of the hotel. At least my room seemed a bit dated and worn. No matter, it was super clean!
I checked out and went to the airport and was bumped from my flight. NO flights for me until the following day. Not a happy moment for me. I called the wonderful night audit/desk clerk person immediately (knowing they were booked up) and asked him if he could pretend I hadn't checked out yet and could I please "come home"? He laughed and said he would take care of it. Cabbed it right back (very early AM mind you), breezed right through and back to "my" room! I have had this happen at other hotels in the past and received more of a "too bad so sad, no rooms available...." comment. Thanks Candlewood! Saved my sanity. I will be back when I need a long term stay.

I had learned that the Candlesweet Suites was one of a few motels that would let you pay to use their pool. I called to verify what I had learned, and yes, we could pay and use the pool I had two grandchildren to entertain for an afternoon. My granddaughter is on a swim team and this allowed her to get her practice time in for the day. The price was reasonable, the pool was clean, and it served our needs.
I have stayed in a Candlewood Suite before and loved it. They provide excellent service and accommodations.

Room Tip: Arrive early and request the room you desire, away from wedding/reunion noises, if possible. Being...

Our usual Appleton motel was booked so I decided to try this Candlewood Suites based on the strength of theTrip Advisor comments. We were very pleased with the choice.

The hotel staff was great, friendlier and more pro-active than most business class hotels I've stayed at. The room was clean, the beds were comfortable and everything in the room worked. The weekend rate was a real bargin and the pet fee is typical ($15). My only complaint about this property was the slow wi-fi. While we underused them on this trip, we really liked the fact that the room had a small kitchenette and that the hotel has a 24 hour snack shop. I'll keep that in mind the next time I need to stay someplace for several days.

The location is close to the airport, the Interstate, shopping and restaurants.
