This was an average Candlewood Suites. The suite was clean enough, however, the service at this Candlewood Suites is lacking. The internet wasn't working for nearly 3 days and then when it was working, I could barely get a connection. After asking the front desk too many times, I just gave up and went to the nearby Starbucks. I think the best thing about this place was the fitness room. Seems like all the equipment was new. The laundry room is a nice convienence, but it was always crowded. You will need to do your laundry late at night. I think I was doing my laundry at 1am. I'm not sure about the mini market they have here. The shelves were bare everyday. Maybe they just sell out all the time? Someone needs to work on the hotel areas. The sitting area outside near the BBQ's were always a mess, cigarette butts and trash everywhere and the floors and carpet just were not clean. This hotel really should find a place for all the smokers. There is a lot of smokers everywhere, even at the entrance. I couldn't get away from them. It just would be nice to sit outside without smoke in your face.
