“One of the best Candlewoods in the Midwest!”
Reviewed October 15, 2011

A large Candlewood that actually has several rooms with separate bedrooms and several 2 bed suites. Rooms are clean and spacious. Staff is friendly. Priority Club members can get late checkout and they get to spin a wheel to win prizes at checkout.

Even on a Friday night with college in session, rooms were quiet and sleep was great. Definitely the top choice in Bloomington/Normal!

Relatively new property - a big plus. Great location near many restaurants and shopping opportunities. Quiet, comfortable, clean and affordable.

Check in was prompt once the agent appeared, but I asked for a change of rooms as the first was obviously recently inhabited by a heavy smoker in violation of hotel restrictions. The accommodations were a good value for the price I paid, but the bed was awful. This appears to be a common problem within selected Priority Club properties, as I stayed at an Intercontinental in the past with the same issue. Lose the pillow tops please!

We atayed at the Cabdlewood Suites on our way home to Minnesota from Florida when we moved our son home after college. It looked like a nice place on the internet when planning our stop for the final night of our trip, but it was even nicer when we got there. The property is like new and maintained extremenly well. The staff is friendly and attentive, and our room was well-appointed, spacious and very clean. All in all, a very good choice to spend a night or a week.

They orignally over charged me by $200 upon checking in. I seen the inflated charge on my bank account called the hotel. After several calls the extra was dropped. Now I have been back at home for a few days and they just charged my credit card another $394.50. The managment has been very unhelpful to say the least in fixing this. BEWARE I WOULD NOT STAY HERE!
