Candlewood Suites Fort Wayne
Ranked #27 of 44 Hotels in Fort Wayne
Reviewed June 5, 2013

I stayed in a suite. It was large as hotel rooms go. It has a small kitchen with a full frig, counter top stove with two burners, mircowave, dishwasher, dishes etc. It has a seperate bedroom with a flat screen in it.. There is also a flat screen in the living room with a couch and chair.

The desk is set up so you can see the TV as you work and the outlets are easy to reach to plug your computer into.

They only clean the rooms once a week, so you do not have daily service.

The front desk is friendly and always very nice. They have an exercise room and a laundry room. It is a pet friendly hotel and there were a number of pets staying when I was there.

This hotel is for extended stays.

Candlewoods have always been a great hotel to stay in but this hotel did not live up to expectations. The outside and lobby of hotel are well maintained. The beds are very uncomfortable. The hotel must cater to pets because my room had pet hair and a smell of pets not to mention all the damage to the furniture from the cats and dogs in the room, I even included pictures of damage. This hotel is designed for extended stay, disturbing to think that pets stay in hotel for days at a time while owners are away. The staff is great and very friendly.

Room Tip: If not traveling with pets ask for a room that has not had pets living in it.

Typical Candlewood if you have ever stayed at one before.

Staff was extremely friendly, and helpful. Hotel was clean and extra towels were given to us upon request. Close to the expressway but outside noise was minimal.

After kind of a rocky start our 2 night getaway turned out great. We were warmly greeted when we arrived and told we had been upgraded to a queen suite. We also received two coupons to choose a soda in the "market". We head to our room and open the door and there are tools, a cleaning cart and carpet shampooer in the room. We head back to the desk and she apologizes for our inconvenience over and over. She had written the room number down incorrectly. For all of our "trouble" she gave us extra points on our Priority Club rewards card, which we told her wasn't necessary, but she insisted. Room was spotless and has everything you need. The only thing that could have made this better would have been a king size bed. I guess we are just spoiled with a king size at home. No complaints here.

Room Tip: Rooms on the west side might be less noisy. Nothing kept us awake, but there was traffic noise on o...

Candlewood Suites is the very first hotel I personally paid to stay in overnight. I found the full kitchen equipped with dishes and complimentary coffee and popcorn very impressive and useful for my situation. I was throwing my boyfriend a birthday party so the full kitchen and the bar table helped a great deal with setting the food out for everyone and having places to seat five or six people. The hotel room was spacious and the internet connection was excellent. My only conplaint would be that the bed was too firm. I guess I can't really complain because I read a couple reviews about the beds and decided to book a room anyway. Luckily, the sofa bed was very comfortable, though. I would and definitely will book more nights at the Candlewood Suites hotels.

We selected Candlewood Suites because our family needs to have a kitchenette when we travel. Our event was just south of downtown and the drive was 15-20 minutes, weekend traffic.
So, the travel time was convenient enough.

The property is just off I-69 but the signage is hard to see from the side roads off the exit. The mapquest directions did get us there, though. We learned that Glenbrook mall is close as are several restaurants and shopping centers (within minutes). There are also many churches within a 10 minute drive.

The front desk staff were courteous and helpful and check in went smooth (as did check out!) There are luggage carts in the foyer ready for guest use.

Our room (one queen suite, non-smoking)) was spacious and clean. Our first impression was how roomy it was. The bathroom was spacious and clean. The family LOVED the towels! Lots of hotwater. The bed was firm, and there were ample pillows. There is a desk space with its own lighting and an ethernet port in the bedroom. We didn't use the free internet service, but we did know it was available. We did use the weekly code for the free wifi service for our tween to use her Ipod and had no difficulties. There are fairly large closets in the main entry area and the bedroom. They offered a laundry basket for guest use of their complimentary washers and dryers (you provide your own detergent). We didn't use the laundry machines or the fitness area, but both seemed to be clean and well kept.

Once we got a little settled in, we noticed the large ripped area on the recliner chair (as if the covering had been peeled off in a patch), a red kool-aid type stain on the carpet near the sleeper sofa (again, we knew about it but didn't use it- there was bedding for it in a closet) and few stains on the sofa cushions.

However, these were easy to over look as the kitchenette and dining bar were a true highlight! The two burner range was easy to use and the microwave was situated over the range. The dishwasher was a touch loud, but fast and efficient. The fridge was clean and spacious (with ice maker) and they provided a plastic pitcher, dishes/cups/glasses/flatware for 4, a large glass bowl with lid, a smaller plastic storage bowl with lid, a colander, measuring cup, toaster,cutting board, a few large knives, a large plastic fork, a cranking can opener, assorted pots/pans/lids and 5 cup coffee maker. They provided salt, pepper, sweeteners, powdered creamers, some tea bags and a decaf coffee packet. (I brought my own coffee, so I didn't ask at the desk for more). There was plenty of liquid dishsoap, 2 dishwasher detergent packs, a wash cloth, towel and hot pad. I was looking for a spatula utensil, but couldn't find one. There is a LOT of kitchen storage- including a floor to ceiling pantry. The dining bar/work space was excellent for family meals!

A thermostat controls the climate and the system advertises that it runs on motion detection. It was set at 72 when we arrived, but became more comfortable for us at 68-69. It ran a bit loud, but did cycle off. If the windows are closed you can NOT hear the highway (we were on the north side of the building facing the highway). Being on the 2nd floor, I expected noise from above, but didn't hear any. We did encounter a few pet owners, but they were responsible.

The property offered a complimentary soda from their honor "store" where you can pick up your forgotten items for small charge. They also have a catalog of movies to borrow at no charge.

Our kids favorite spot was the swimming pool! It was clean, spacious, LOTS of towels and seating, set off from the rest of the floor plan on the south side with lots of windows for nice sunlight. And, we were alone each time we used it!

We truly did enjoy this property and would stay here again if needed. If you are sensitive to noise, ask for a 3rd floor, south side room. But, we had no complaints on our northside 2nd floor.

Room Tip: If you are sensitive to potential noise, ask for a 3rd floor, south side room. But, we had no compl...
