“Nice for the money”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

My wife, dog and I stayed here for Christmas Eve and were pleasantly surprised. There is really nothing exceptional about this place but there are also no negatives. The price was reasonable although they did add $15 for us having our small dog. The hotel was very quiet & clean. The small kitchenette was a plus, although we didn't bring anything to prepare for our breakfast. Next time we will. The heating unit under the window was quitter than most. The bathroom was small but they made good use of the limited space with a counter extending over the toilet and a corner wall shelf unit that allowed us to put most of our toiletries on shelves instead of on the vanity top. All in all, we would not hesitate to stay here again. Why only four stars instead of five? Only because there are no king beds, its lobby is very small and there is nothing offered nothing for breakfast. But then again, what would you expect from a place that has kitchenettes in every room.

Thank you for the nice things you said about the hotel and for being understanding that we are a limited service facility. However, for your information, during your next stay in a Candlewood Suites - all hotels offer a "Cupboard" area where you can purchase (through the honor system) breakfast, lunch or dinner items. Also several drinks (sodas & juices) and snacks are readily avaiable.....with complimentary coffee 24 hours a day.

We didn't know when we made the reservation that there wouldn't be any housekeeping for stays less than a week and that threw us for a bit of a loop BUT we were not otherwise disappointed. This hotel was very clean and convenient and had more space than other hotels in the area I looked at. We booked the queen bed separate bedroom with a pullout sofa in the main area. The main area had a desk and kitchenette. Two TV's. One spacious bathroom. The bed was heavenly (though the pillows were like lumpy rocks). We made use of the free washer and dryer. There's a limited fitness center area in the washer/dryer/pantry room off the lobby. Towels are clean and plentiful but kind of scratchy, not soft. Same with the toilet paper! They don't really provide shampoos etc and we couldn't find a blow dryer. They do have an iron and ironing board and there are two spacious closets, which was great. Shower was fine. Bathroom was very clean. There are kitchen amenities including a coffee maker, microwave, fridge. The two flat screen TV's are nice.The rate was very good. You won't be disappointed.

We have family in libertyville and now we stay exclusively at candlewood. It's not the Ritz Carlton, but it is clean, quiet, the staff is friendly, and the hotel is pet friendly. We travel from Florida and stay at many places along the way, and have become big fans of candlewood.

Great rates - definitely will be back!!!!

This place is comfortable and you have everything you need. Rooms are spacious and spotless. The gym is basic, but ok. Staff is also very helpful and friendly.Nearby you can go for a jog in lush surroundings. There are not too many restaurants around walking distance, but if you have a car you'll have planty of options.

First mention about the experience at candlewood suites is about spacious and clean rooms. I had here for a month (October 2013). Very good staff (they know well to bake cookies ;)), decent facilities (Libertyville itself is a small village, and you cant expect more).
I was very happy with the rate offered and at the rate the offerings are really good. I loved the small pond right opposite too.
No breakfast is provided, and nearest restaurant is like 5 mins drive. cupboard has soem good choices and laundry and gym are free

I LOVE this hotel. The room is unbeatable, I have a king suite, very spacious, a large desk and wrap around counter. The kitchen and bathroom and entire room is spotless... not a fingerprint or smudge or spot anywhere. Very impressive. All new, and so very comfortable. I'm planning on making this my hotel of choice when working in this area.

My husband and I stayed at the hotel for some alone time, and to go to Great America. We loved this hotel! It was very clean, fresh, and welcoming. The hotel staff is amazing, and so helpful! The rooms were clean and very nice. Loved the kitchenette! There was ample parking, and even grills outside to use! The hotel is right next to a small pond, which is quite relaxing to walk along and see the birds. The Candlewood cupboard, which operates on the honor system, is interesting, but I like it! It makes the hotel stand out. Everything we needed was right there, and minutes from Great America! I would definitely return to this hotel if I am in the Libertyville area!
