“Back Home To Detroit - Southfield”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2014

The hotel was remodeled and looks spectacular. They continue to officer military discount rates. If you have a business, ask them for a discount. Their price for our three night and four day stay was economical for a family. Great places to eat and shop not too far away from the hotel. Easy to get to Downtown Detroit, to the Tiger and Lion gams, Fox Theatre, Joe Louis Arena, Cobo Hall, Greek Town by Wayne State University, Belle Isle Park, to the Detroit Metropolitan Airport, City of Troy, to take the tunnel to Canada then taking the Ambassador Bridge back to Detroit. Make sure you bring your passport to go into and from Canada. Canada is beautiful also. Enjoy your trip. Using Woodward Avenue as you inter city direct road will take you through many different cities, all the way down to and past the State Fair grounds during the summer. Enjoy Pure Michigan. There is more to Michigan than the eye can see. Stay additional days to see Michigan. Your in Pure Michigan. Enjoy.

Room Tip: We had the family suite which was great. Complete kitchen. No need to go to the ice machine because...

All I got to say about this place is it charges too much nice hotel though only stayed four nights and was able to do my thing fast free Wi-Fi internet access with large desk that was awesome perfect location off of I-696.

Room Tip: Ask about charges and rates first before anything.

I was in town on business and stayed in this Candlewood. I'm a Platinum member with IHG and had stayed in this hotel previously with minimal problems. This time, that was definitely not the case.
When I checked into the hotel late into the evening, I pulled back the sheets on my bed only to find hairs in the sheets. I brushed them off and still kept the room because it was late and I had an early morning. My second problem arose the next day. Upon my arrival the previous day the front desk clerk had assured me that I would have a 2pm checkout. However, knocks from housekeeping started at 12pm. At 12:30 a front desk clerk came banging on my door and when I opened it he was very rude and said "We had you leaving today." I explained that I had a 2pm checkout and he simply said "Oh, okay." and walked away, never apologizing once.
Overall, I am very dissatisfied with my stay and will definitely be reconsidering my accommodations next time I'm in Southfield.

I stay in the 1 in southfield, michigan for 1 week. The bathtub water going way too slow called front desk, the front desk say will get somebody to check never see any for 1 week. Housekeeping don't even give you tissue paper and only see housekeeping once. The cabinet door fall off called front desk and no one show up. Wrost then the 50 dollar motel I stayed. I thought a suite should be batter the a motel but I guess I expect too much from this suite.

My stay at Candlewood Suites Southfield-Detroit was from August 30th till September 10, 2013. Everything about my stay was magnificent! The staff was on point about everything I needed, also friendly with a geniune greeting and smile! Not fake at all! A very CLEAN establishment! The Manager Kevin was very professional and attentive along with Brian who was the same! Talk about Hospitality at its best! KUDOS to the entire STAFF! I loved the suite I was in! Every time I walked into my suite it would always smell so good and fresh! Housekeeping was very accommodating to me. My bedding was tip top clean during my entire stay! The decorative furnishings and layout of my suite was like an exclusive apartment! Whoop! Whoop! LoL... When I had family/friends over they were impressed. The only thing they didn't have was a swimming pool & jacuzzi. But that was ok, because they made up for it with all the other amenities they have. The Gazebo with a beautiful Grill and utensils available upon request. Free laundry use and a "Cupboard Store" with a Honor System! "WOW!" Nice exercise room also. Free movies DVDs and VHS and Books to rent. I was visiting from Honolulu Hawaii and I would stay here again IN A HEART BEAT! My review rating for this particular Candlewood Suite Southfield-Detroit is a BIG FAT 100%! Aloha & Mahalo from the Hawaiian Islands! Until we meet again..... *Darryl Willis* $mile ;-)

I am staying in this hotel right now. Believe me when I say that I would leave the hotel if had a chance to look for something else. For me the most important thing is cleanliness, especially when you are going to be in the same room for 4-5 months. Its been a month here, and what I have noticed is that they never vacuum the carpet, change sheets or wash clothes. Also, they never clean behind the door in the bathroom. My hair are always there. House keeping is absolutely HORRIBLE!

This hotel was not a clean place. It was suppose to be newly renovated. But our first room smell like smoke. So we had to move to another room. The second was a lot better. We got a great deal on the price. We came to Detroit for my cousin wedding. But we came a few days early so we could see family. The wedding was 45min north of Detroit and we stayed at another hotel. I will never stay there again. I recommend not staying at this hotel. We stayed here June 2010.
