“Excellent facilities and great location”
Reviewed March 13, 2011

We spent three nights here, with the intention of exploring Tallahassee and also visiting the Florida Panhandle coast. Despite arriving early, our room was ready and we could check in. The receptionist was great - friendly and helpful, and gave us a map and recommendations for parking in Tallahassee. The room was perfect - lots of space with a really well equipped kitchen area. We didn't spend much time in the room - too busy exploring - but I would recommend it as a great base. We found Tallahassee itself to be surprisingly quiet and characterless (apart from the old Capitol - well worth visiting) with few restaurants or bars. The Candlewood Suites was in a far better location, with many restaurants within a half hour walk. The hotel is new (not on Google Earth!) and is obviously well run. It took us two hours of easy driving to reach St George's Island on the coast; the state park is stunning.

This place is a gem and has everything a traveler could want in a hotel. A comfortable recliner to watch the flat screened TV. A spacious, quiet room with a full length mirror in the dressing area. A fully equipped kitchen with a full sized refrigerator with ice maker. A great half circle desk with free internet There are granite counter tops, a bright bathroom with a built in nightlight. But most of all the beds are comfortable, there are plenty of thick, absorbent towels and the hotel is built so that it is very quiet. Our only minor complaint is that they are short staffed, so the maids are rushed and forget to restock some things, like the coffee creamer. And we had to wait until 3 pm (which, in fairness, is the stated check in time) before our room was ready. But these are such a small things in an otherwise great stay, that I hate to even mention them. This is a hotel chain we plan to use again. A happy surprise!

Stayed for one night with wife and dog. Staff was extremely helpful with a printing job. Whole facility was spotless. Room space was generous, well laid out. And dog-friendly to boot. Definitely the best, cleanest and most reasonable place to stay in Tallahassee. Will return for sure.

Our stay at the Candlewood Suites was enhanced by the professional and friendly desk clerk (Detroit) and the room was immaculate, extremely well furnished and very functional. I will definitely return when visiting Tallahassee.

My family and I were very fortunate to have every issue we had from the initial phone call, down to the check out to be a smooth transitision. Never having heard of Candlewood before I didn't know what to expect. However after meeting the person at the front desk "Detriot" we were releaved to know how competent and friendly he was. After getting checked in we were pleasantly surprised and comforted by the overall cleanliness of the room and all common areas. The staff even gave us great advice on local resteraunts and their relative location and price range. Overall Candlewood was very affordable, clean and offered exceptional customer service.

Thanks Detriot

We were very pleased with our stay at Candlewood in Tallahassee, Florida. We found the room in perfectly clean condition, and as this is a rather new motel, the furniture, flooring and even the towels were like brand new. It would be a great place for a longer stay, as it is equiped with a range top and full-sized refrigerator. For a one-night stay, it was more than we needed. The staff, particularly Detroit, was very courteous, polite, and helpful.
