“Great hotel, great room, great front desk staff!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2013

My girlfriend & I stayed @ this property for 4 nights during spring break & we thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Our queen studio suite was very nice & clean, we had a great view of the pond & the alligator, and I can't say enough about the two ladies who worked the front desk -- Linda & Carol.
They were very friendly and very helpful during our stay. They answered all my questions & gave me some great local information & directions. Any hotel would be so lucky to have these two ladies working for them!!! I would highly reccommend this property to my family & friends & I would stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for the 4th Floor on the back of the hotel facing the pond.

Thanks for the great review. All our staff takes pride in making sure your stay is pleasant. We are an extremely quiet hotel, in a cul-de-sac, away from the main road going to the beaches adjacent to the large pond.

We stayed at Candlewood Suites for 5 nights and enjoyed our stay. We had a queen suite, with a 2 burner stove top, full sized fridge and even a dishwasher. After our stay we were continuing with our travels, so the FREE (yes free) laundry facilities were very much appreciated! The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. We had a table and 2 chairs, as well as a reclining chair...so very comfy overall. The pool area was nice...could have had more lounge chairs, there were only 2 and we were lucky enough to get them for the time we were at the pool. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The location was a bit off the beaten path, but convenient to everything, if you had a car. I would not recommend staying there if you don't have your own transportation. We did so it was great. The place was booked pretty full, but even at that, we found it to be quiet. We would definitely stay at the Candlewood Suites again!

Room Tip: We had a room on the top floor and it was very quiet.

I am glad you had a pleasant stay. Our rooms were designed to make your stay as comfortable as possible with that home-like feeling. Supplying all your dishes and cookware, the dishwasher is great!

My wife and I stayed 3 nights while we visited Ft. Myers, Sanibel/Captiva Islands. We then went on to Bonita Springs and Naples. Our room or suite was clean and comfortable and nice size, seemed like new in every way, it exceeded our expectation. Fully stocked kitchen. Good location for Ft. Myers and beach and Sanibel. University Grill was great too - close by. Friendly staff and thanks Harris. We will stay here again and recommend this hotel. Free laundry room, dvds, fitness room and pool. No smoking building. Big parking lot.

Room Tip: our room was close to elevator, corner room and quiet, on 2nd floor, facing parking lot

Luckily, we are in a cul-de-sac and all our rooms are very quiet. There is no street noise like some hotels off the highway. Next time, ask for a room overlooking the pond so you can see the turtles, the alligator and all our Florida wildlife.

After driving 25hours straight to get to Florida, with no hotel booked (during March Break), we were glad to find that this hotel had a room for us!! We had never stayed at a Candlewood before and was very pleasantly surprized. Although, they only had a room with 1 queen bed (we were a family of 4) they were able to put 2 roll aways in the room and still have plenty of room for us to walk around.
The room had a kitchenette with a microwave, cooktop and all the necessary cooking utensils and dishes/cups. The bathroom was huge!!

Will look for more Candlewood Suites while vacationing in the furture

I am glad you found the Candlewood Suites! Most people are pleasantly surprised when they arrive. Our homey atmosphere gives you plenty of privacy and large rooms for the price. Full kitchens, free laundry, free Wi-Fi, free parking and our great Candlewood Service!

Close to trolly stop for beach. Great pool and deck area. Rooms clean and well cared for. Staff was very friendly and helpful. It's nice to have kitchen area for breakfast and snacks. Only complaint I have on this chain is there are no ice machines. The ice maker in frig isn't adequate for a cooler

Being 4 miles from Fort Myers Beach, a short drive to Sanibel Island, and minutes from Downtown, makes us central to all Fort Myers has to offer! Beach, Shopping, Restaurants, Night Life, I hope you bring comfortable shoes on your next stay!

This was our 2nd time in a Candewood, having experienced NY Times square I did not expect much, I was wrong: the rooms are 3 times the size, in a very quiet location just a few miles from the bridge to Sanibel and Captiva. From our room we could see a pond with turtles and alligators. Staff is great as previously written. You have erything you need , even a small outside pool and fitness room.

Our hotel is uniquely situated in a cul-de-sac, for nice quiet business accomodations or a much needed getaway to the World Famous Beaches in Fort Myers Beach or Sanibel Island. Our full kitchens in our all suite property make your stay feel like home. With a full size fridge, cook top and microwave, we take care of all your needs from silverware to dishes to cookware. Just minutes from Downtown Fort Myers and all the shopping and restaurants, we are near it all!
