We stayed for a week in early March '10. The weather was awful, so we spent rather more time indoors than expected. Candlewood has a lovely feature called a living room that was a great relief -- too much time in one room drives me gonzo. The living room is quite large, maybe 15' by 30'. It has a public use PC, a quite large screen TV, several couches, comfortable chairs and ottomans arranged in separate groupings. A nice retreat. A useful little self-service store with snacks, detergent, drinks, etc. was handy. For long stays, FREE washers and dryers.
Suites have full-size refrigerators, two burner stovetops, microwaves and dishwashers. Plates & silver for two only. I appreciated the desk/table with Internet connection and plugs. Beds were comfortable and well-pillowed.
The location is great for going to the beaches or jumping on 75 or 41/45 south, but it's a schlep downtown. There is nowhere walkable from this location, but there is a Publix/Walgreens strip mall nearby.
My one disappointment was that since it's a suites hotel, they only clean rooms once a week unless guests change. The floors got pretty crumby (literally) in six days. They did say we could request interim cleaning, but by the time it really bothered me, we were leaving anyway.
