I have stayed at many hotels over the last 7 weeks. I have stayed at the Candlewood Suites in Conway Arkansas, the Candlewood Suites in Bossier City Louisiana, and now at the Candlewood Suites in McAlester Oklahoma. I really enjoy the full kitchens in the rooms. Full size Fridge, full size dishwasher, and cooking stoves. I really like being able to come back to my room after a full day in the field, and being able to fix whatever i want for dinner, without having to go out for it. All the employees so far have been very helpful with any thing I need. They also have a little store by the lobby with all types of foods, and if you happen to forget things you need on your trip, it is also availble in the stores.

Room Tip: No traffic on the backside rooms at all.

This Candlewood was the best I have ever been in. Without a doubt this hotel was right up there with the best. 4 stars is not adequat. In many cases this hotel would have been a 5 star.
I just cant put into words how great this Candlewood is. This should be a role model for Candlewood suites

Thanks

Room Tip: Rooms near the exit doors on the side of the building makes loading and unloading a piece of cake.

Stayed there during holiday travels with a disabled relative. Absolutely beautiful room and we had a kitchen and an accessible bathroom. First floor. My disabled roommate had several issues (not related to the hotel) and the manager on duty went above and beyond to help and accommodate their needs. Bed was very comfortable, room was white glove clean. Room included a very comfy leather recliner. Kitchen is completely stocked with dishes, cups, pots and pans, toaster, coffee maker, microwave. Bathroom was huge with a large roll-in shower. Towels were very nice - soft but very absorbent. Extra pillows available, movies are available at the front desk, free laundry facilities, gym. There was also an "honors" store near the front desk for snacking needs. Very reasonable price. I would absolutely stay there again.

Room Tip: First floor near the lobby and parking was very quiet. Never heard any street noise.

I travel very often for work and my work in Oklahoma has brought me to the McAlester area for extended periods of time. I was staying at another IHG hotel in the area with COMPLETE SATIFICATION, but was needing just a little more area to spreadout. This Candlewood Suites has the space I need. I have stayed in other Candlewood Suites, but most of them only offered the Studio Suties. This one has the bedroom suites availble which are amazing. Something about being able to close a door to where you are sleeping to separate from the living area makes you feel like you are in an apartment or at home. Having pretty much a full kitchen (Including a dishwasher) as opposed to just a microwave and mini frig allows me to cook some nights over eating out every night. On top of all of that, it is actually cheaper per night to stay here for my extended periods of time over the other IHG hotel where I do have a coporate rate.

Never had any problems here, and I choose it over other hotels in the area due to the kitchen in each room. There isn't an oven included, but most dishes can be made in the microwave or on the stovetop. It's usually cheaper than some of the other local hotels as well.
