Reviewed August 28, 2012

This hotel is new so it is of course in great condition, but I have to add that the new design is spot on! I have been at several Candlewood Suites over the years and this one is the best ever. The decor is beautiful. The finishes are way beyond what I have come to expect from them. LOVE the huge desk/table/dresser. Space is always a premium for long term stays and this hotel offers plenty of it. The bathrooms are thoughtfully laid out, again plenty of storage.

Front desk clerk was nice and efficient when we checked in. She even reminded us of the housekeeping policy.

There are a ton of restaurants nearby to choose from as well as a Target which has a small grocery department for basics.

My only complaint is the energy management thermostat. I like it really cool when I sleep and that is a challenge with that system.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn downtown for a couple of weeks. This is a huge improvement. I wish we had moved sooner!

This is one of the best hotels I have stayed in. It has a kitchenette in each room, free laundry machines, a gym, and a pantry where you can get those items you may have left at home. Also it is very close to nice restaurants, movie theaters, and shopping. I will stay there again!!

Candlewood Suites in St. Joe opened a few months ago and is brand new. The hotel is in a convenient location just off I-29 and is adjacent to a huge shopping area and restaurants. The front desk staff here is what made my stay great! They are very personable, friendly, helpful, know the area well and really get to know their long term guests. I would definitely recommend this place if you are staying a few nights or a week or so. Long term guests may find it noisy or that the kinks still need some working out. The rooms are very spacious and have a lot of work space. The mattress was very comfortable and slept really well. The bathroom had plenty of counter space and shelving/drawers to hold all of your things. The kitchenette was also very nice, had a full sized fridge, dishwasher, microwave and 2 burner stove top, with your basic cooking utensils. Plastic containers were a nice plus for saving leftovers!
If you've never stayed with Candlewood before, the cleaning staff only comes by once a week. You may request more cleanings but you may have to make the request more than once.
I was disappointed to find there was no pool, however, the workout room and FREE laundry were a huge plus! I enjoyed being able to plug in and control my Ipod from the exercise machines and utilize brand new Whirlpool Duet washer/dryers. The laundry could be quite crowded, so setting a timer to ensure your clothes didn't get removed is advisable (and also a courtesy to others).
In addition, the outside grills, free movie and applicance rentals, and managers reception were great perks to making the stay better. Although I didn't utilize it, there was a "mini pantry" where many household items were available for purchase.
I would definitely stay here again!

This new hotel is on the "right side" of St. Joe. It is near all the new restaurants, shopping, and movie theatre.

The "sticks and bricks" are nice on this hotel. It is new! I might make a recomendation to who ever designed the front entrance that they should grind down the front curb to make it easy for travelers to just roll their luggage right on in. This is an extended stay hotel and we stayed for 3 nights. I think for business travelers who might be staying for multiple nights, this would be an excellent choice. There is a very nice work space in the rooms and the rooms are big. I think it would have been beneficial at the time of check in to have the staff member explain that there is no housekeeping services for short term stays. We were gone one day and expected new towels and a made beds, but came back to the same room we left. Again, not a huge deal, it would have just have been nice to be prepared. You take your own trash to the end of the hall. I understand for long term stays there is weekly housekeeping.

If you are staying with family, please note there is no pool and no built in breakfast buffet, just a little store where you can buy some snacks and the like.

Also, there are very comfortable beds!

Traveled to St. Joseph on business and stayed one night here. The desk staff was extremely helpful and the room was very clean. I would definitely stay here again although the HVAC unit was somewhat noisy and seemed to come on too often.

My wife and I were heading home from vacation in SD. We were getting beat driving, so we ended up landing here. It was probably THE BEST hotel we stayed at on vacation! The staff was friendly and helpful.

Now remember, these are geared towrds more of extended stay..they are suites. But my wife has stayed in other Candlewood Suites, and said this one had a much better selection in their" candlewood cupboard", and they had a" lending box" which had games, crockpots, toaster ovens, etc.

We could have just stayed in one of these in South Dakota....too bad there aren't any in Keystone ;)

The bed was very comfy!! Best we slept on!

So, if you're in the St.Joe area for some gambling, or just passing thru...give it a try!

I love this hotel. This a brand new hotel and the decor is amazing. Very modern decor and spacious. The bed was divine and the full kitchen was a nice bonus. Perfect for personal or business travel. (Business travelers will love the enormous workspace!). The front desk staff was very friendly and professional and were very accomodating of my late checkout request. Located near shopping, movie theater, and tons of restaraunt, and close highway access.
