“Clean, quiet, close to services”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

I stay at this hotel every few weeks for business, and I always have a great experience. The hotel is quiet, clean, and close to a Walmart and several restaurants. I really like the kitchenette and full-sized fridge--great for extended stays. All the staff are pleasant and do what they can to keep you satisfied as a guest. For those staying without a car, their shuttle bus makes a run to Walmart every Thursday in the early evening for those who want to pick up some supplies for their stay--handy option!

We were only at the Candelwod Suites for 2 nights but it was a very pleasant stay. Very clean and the suite had all we needed. We even added my grandson at the last minute and they had no problem. We just took an air matress for him and he slept like a bug in a rug. If we go to the Waukegan area again,which I am sure we will bacause I have family there, we will be staying at the Candelwood Suites.

Easy access to major highways. Very friendly front desk staff. Room was very clean and inviting. In house "store" has reasonable prices. So what's the issue.....?

Bed had deep "dip" in the middle of the mattress. So much so that one naturally rolled into the center of the mattress. Felt like I was falling into a hot dog bun!

This hotel is an extended stay hotel with living room, full kitchen and bedroom. The hotel was maintained well and comfortable. There is a free laundry center connected to a work out room. There is also a pantry on the honor system, Grills are available on a lovely porch. There is only weekly housekeeping service, however you can get fresh sheets or towels whenever you want them. Great hotel and Great value!

This is a clean and quiet Candlewod Suites property located on the far north side of Chicago in Waukegan.
I stay here regularly as my company has an excellent discount rate with the property.
The staff is always friendly, the rooms are always spotless and the location is easy walking distance to many shopping and dinig options at the Fountain Square complex across the street.
Dont hesitate to book here if you are in the Waukegan / Gurnee area..

In this day and time, cleanliness was my number one concern. I examined the room before unpacking, making sure there were no sign of bed bugs. Not only did I not find bed bugs, but I didn’t find one strange hair. The service staff at this hotel really takes pride in a job well done. The room was so clean! I found the beds to be very comfortable, they are very firm. The room was spacious, we had a queen suite. The hotel did have a strange road entry system, but our Garvin was able to lead us right to the front door. The fitness center had good equipment. The pantry was not completely filled up but there were no holes and there was a good selection of items. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful enough. I had to print the pass to get on base for our sons graduation and I was able to do that in the media center. It was stocked with paper in the printer. You will need the letter your recruit sent you when they first arrived at boot camp for information to put on your pass. At first the area didn’t seem like it offered much of a selection in dining but once again Garvin was able to lead us to anything we could want in less than 5 mile. It was really close to the base and in a very nice neighborhood. I think we took advantage of every amenity and found it to be very nice place to stay. We even checked out two DVD's while we were there. I have stayed at higher rated hotels but I couldn’t imagine one being cleaner.

This was my second visit at the Candlewood Suites Waukegan for business. I was a bit disappointed this time which is why I only gave them a very good rating. I am very sensitive to cigarette smoke and I woke up in the middle of the night to a nasty smell. As it turns out my room was right below the front door where a lot of people stand around smoking. It came right through the A/C unit. Next time I'll be sure to get a room away from the front door.

All in all the hotel is not too bad and is in a very good location. Rooms are very spacious for those who like to spread out and do business from the room. I would recommend this hotel to all business travelers.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the front door.
