Candlewood Suites Somerset
Ranked #11 of 16 Hotels in Somerset
Reviewed September 10, 2008

I stayed at this hotel for 9 days over 2 weeks. I checked out once for the weekend, so I had 2 rooms to review on.

Remember that this is a long term stay like Extended Stay America, where you do not have daily maid service. So you leave your room a mess, towels on the floor, they will be there when you return. Rooms are freshened weekly. This was no problem for me as I just treated it like an apartment or home.

The staff at the front desk was very friendly. Again, this is not like a regular full service hotel, so there is no one manning the desk from 10PM (11pm?) to 7am. So if you are checking in or out during those times, you should be prepared ahead of time. for wait to check in or just drop cards for check out in the box.

It is located next to a Residence Inn , a brand I often stay at, but the 1/3 cheaper rate was too good not to try. The rooms were a bit smaller than Residence inns, but fully equipped with electric stove, full side frig, coffee maker, dishwasher & microwave... with all needed utensils, pans etc.

It was easy on & off I287, located down at the end of a section of low rise office buildings, and tech companies. It was very quiet. You will have to drive to get any groceries.. about 2 miles or so away. same for restaurants, except they are a bit further.

I would stay here again as it was clean, quiet, and a great value. I would really give it 3 1/2 stars. Not 'polished/fancy enough for a 4, but a nice stay.

One negative.. the world's slowest elevator.

I stayed at this hotel on july the 9th for 2 nights. The front desk agent : Carlo, Sherlley, they were very friendly. The room look like a one bedroom appartment with a full kitchen, a sofa bed, 2 tv. the neighbohood is very quiet . but if you don' t drive it will be very difficult to walk to grocery store and others.
I will definetely stay there on my next trip to new jersey and i will recommand this hotel to my friends and coworkers.

By stopover hotel for the night before i start my road trip, it has everything you want in an apartment . From a separated room, 2 TVs a mini kitchen till a vcr and a dvd player.

But there is no service staff after 7pm and you need to managed everything on your own including check in. They put your keys in a safe box and you need to self-checkin. Couldnt find the hotel staff when i want to check out too. Although they say it start work at 7am

Recently stayed at the Candlewood Somerset and found it to be very pleasant. Curteous staff, rooms very nicely appointed, particularly for the price. I would have no problem recommending the facility to others.
