“Not bad at all”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

I just needed a 1 night stay by the Airport. This was pretty close and the rate was fantastic. They don't have a shuttle so you need to cab it. The cabs aren't cheap either. Great room, fairly large and a good sized Kitchenette. The store in the lobby had a decent selection of food and there is a great restaurant just behind the hotel. The staff was very friendly. I would definitely stay here again.

I stayed at this hotel for three months during a work assignment. I was very happy with the hotel itself and the staff was very helpful and friendly. My bed was awesomely comfortable. The new décor is beautiful and I felt at home. Hotel is close to several restaurants and grocery type shopping, but you have to go a little further for entertainment or leisure shopping. Easy access to the interstate and airport. There is no pool but it does have a nice exercise room.

We wanted to use points for an overnight stay while visiting relatives in a Columbus, OH suburb and be close to a mall. While clean, the décor of this the room was outdated. We had to remind the front desk of a couple of requests which were not fulfilled but made at the time of the reservation. I'm giving a rating of 3 stars because the room was equipped with a full size refrigerator, microwave and stovetop. Service at the front desk was friendly. I liked the "Spin the Wheel" to win a small prize.

I have stayed at a few hotels near the airport in Columbus, and the Candlewood Suites is my favorite (another hotel I have reviewed on TripAdvisor is a close second).

What I like most about it:
1) Ample room for working
2) Kitchen
3) On-site laundry services
4) Full cable (with HBO)
5) Friendly and efficient staff.
6) Very reasonable price

This hotel is a very good return on investment.

Room Tip: I like the one bedroom suites - they feel like a one bedroom apartment... (and if you are a priority...

Since 3 of the 5 Columbus, Ohio on-airport hotels have closed, we chose Candlewood Suites because they were convenient to the airport (5 minute drive). The reception was friendly and efficient. They cater to longer stays, so our room had a spacious work-desk, regular fridge, micro-wave oven, coffee machine, toaster and dishes and cutlery for two. They do not offer breakfast (small snacks are available for purchase) or an airport shuttle. We encountered one major problem: as we were preparing for bed, we noticed a couple of winged insects crawling on the pillows and head-board. Soon “a couple” became “several” and we requested a room change. The clerk responded immediately and moved us around 10:30 from 121 to 135, where we had no further problems. This is not how we prefer to prepare for an early morning flight and we were annoyed, to say the least. However, the manager and staff were very apologetic and reduced our bill by 50%. Because of their location and the friendliness of the staff we will be giving them another try on our next trip. I have rated "Sleep Quality" as only average for 2 reasons: we had to change rooms after preparing for bed, and the bathroom doors on the 2 rooms we were in, as well as at least one nearby room, had a piercing squeak that kept us awake part of the night. I assume that a little oil can take care of the problem.

I spent the night here because of proximity to the airport and low senior rate. The young man at the front desk was extremely helpful with check in, directions to the airport for the next day and help with finding a restaurant. While the hall had a faint smoke smell the non smoking room did not. The room was clean, the bed was very comfortable. While smaller than some suite hotel rooms this one was nicely designed with what looked like a fully equipped kitchem (I did not use) and a nice workspace. The location was quiet and a few blocks from the business area. There was no breakfast and no airport transport. I had a rental car. While fine for an overnight airport stay for a low rate. This hotel is better suited for a longer stay.

Room Tip: If you do not smoke request non smoking as this is not a smoke free property.

This hotel is perfect for long stays in Columbus. We only needed it for the weekend for three people. I called to let them know we'd be a late check in and when we arrived my paperwork was ready for me immediately. It was more than we needed since we spent very little time in the room itself but the room was clean and well maintained and very roomy. The bed was very comfortable and clean. My friend who used the sofa bed slept well. The kitchen area was well stocked with the necessities and includes a dishwasher, stove, closet, and fridge. There is a laundry area and a gym as well. Also, the hotel staff that we did interact with was very friendly and accomdating. I would definately recommend this hotel for long stays. The price we paid was well worth it for that kind of room. The only downside is that it's right near the airport so you will hear the planes but that's to be expected considering it's location.
