“One of my favorites”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

I am a State Law Enforcement Officer and travel to this area frequently. This place is by far my favorite place to stay in the Jackson, MS area. Great staff, great hotel. I travel solo and the room is roomy, clean and good for the business traveler.

Room Tip: Rooms on north side are quieter.

I stayed here for a week

Pros
- Close to all restaurants and stores - 2 minutes
- Close to airport - 10 minutes
- Stayed in suite with separate bedroom. Living room sofa opens to a bed which is where my daughter slept
- Clean
- Staff was very friendly and accommodating.

Cons
- Maid service: It seems that for long stays, the rooms are only cleaned once a week. So the room was not cleaned and the beds were not made our entire stay. Not a huge deal but it would have been nice if this had been disclosed to us in advance; it was not.
-Towels: Because the rooms are not made up daily, we had to bring used towels down to the desk and exchange them for clean towels every day. Not a huge deal but it would have been nice if this had been disclosed to us in advance; it was not.

Overall: It was fine and a bit cheaper than the Holiday Inn Express next door. I would recommend it with the caveat about the lack of maid service. I am not sure how the maid service works for shorter stays.

We loved our stay here. Everyone was so nice, the room was clean, and beautiful. We couldn't have asked for better. The only thing we questioned was the price difference between this Candlewood Inn and the one located in Pearl, MS. It is just as nice and about 15$ cheaper a night. Never the less, we loved it here, and we will be staying here again.

First I'd like to say that the night shift clerk was very helpful, professional, kind and welcoming. My check in was efficient and I was given great directions on where to park and the easiest and closest route to my room. I was a late arrival as I was traveling across country with my daughter, putting in long days driving. We were exhausted. Upon arrival into the room we found it to be substandard on cleanliness. There was a dirty sock laying on the floor next to the tv stand, cut toe nails next to the night stand, the carpet was not vacuumed, and there were mascara smears on the pillow and top sheet. I surmised that the marks were stains and they could not be removed. I used a wet wash cloth and the marks were easily removed. It was apparent that at least this particular pillow case and sheet were not laundered in between guests. On the bright side, I did do a check of the room for bed bugs and NONE were found so that's a BIG plus!!!! I advised the day clerk of the condition of my room and she stated she would notify the head house keeper. The friendliness of the night staff was not carried through to day shift... I would stay here again since they have managed to remain free of bedbugs... That's a hard status to keep these days.. Just check your sheets so you aren't unknowingly sharing them with strangers!

Room Tip: There is a warehouse on the back side of the hotel that run fork lifts outside at night so if you...

I stay here often for work and always enjoy my stay. From the staff to the convenience to shops (Target, Best Buy, Hobby Lobby, Kohl's, Dick's, Belk), it one of my favorite places to stay. The kitchen is always great if you need to cook in the room or bring home leftovers!

As an experienced traveller and businessman, I have personally and professionally never been so viciously attacked in all my life (literally). I was asked by an employee to intervene with a guest who I later found out they, the staff, knew was trouble and was beaten savagely for my kindness.
The police told me after I went by ambulance to the emergency room that they thought I was going to die of a stroke.
Could I ever feel safe in this place, ever again? No way! They don't care about guest safety. As a matter of fact, after the attack the staff was instructed not to talk to me. I was beaten, lonely and isolated.
Still recovering.

I stayed at this hotel and it was superb. From the hotel to the staff I must tell you that it was like my home away from home. Over my year and a half the staff greyed me every morning and night by name. Clean, comfortable and cozy. Little southern town with plenty of shopping and restaurants. Great job. Amen
