We were very pleased with Candlewood Suites. The room was just right for 2 people and we appreciated the kitchen and large bathroom very much. It's situated among some medical buildings and was very quiet yet close to the highways, providing easy access to all the sites. The only negatives were: the shower was very weak and the bed was against one wall which made it very difficult to make. Moreover, the person sleeping on that side didn't have a nightstand which made it very inconvenient for there wasn't even room on the floor to put anything.
The AC worked fine (not too loud) and the housekeeping came once a week. However, if you needed anything in the meantime like fresh linens, you just had to go to the front desk to ask. The pool area was not used at all while we were there and I wish they had a little balcony off our room so we could sit on it in the evening, but it was still good value for the money. Part of the trip was off-season so the rates were lower - averaging out to less than $100 a day. It's about 3/4 mile from the coffee shop The Grind and it was a wonderful walk there each morning and a nice walkway along the highway. We would definitely come back to Candlewood!
