“Good Value and Service”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

I usually don't stay at Candlewood of the Holiday Inn line, but I was on my own dime and needed something that met budget. Candlewood did that - clean / friendly staff / good location / good internet access.
Not fancy but was good and would recommend for budget minded traveler.

First time to stay at a Candlewood and we were impressed!! My husband recently had invasive back surgery, so we required a handicap accessible room. This room was huge, it looked like an efficiency apartment!! Granite countertop in kitchen area, full-size refrigerator with icemaker, dishwasher, two burner stove-top and microwave. It was super clean, quiet, and we'll definitely be a repeat customer!!

Very friendly helpful staff. The room was spacious and comfortable. A nice desk, lounge chair and flat screen TV. We loved having the small kitchen, which was a good cost saving to be able to fix our own breakfasts.
The towels could use some softener when they are washed. They feel like cardboard.
If we come this way again we would definitely stay there again

Room Tip: Our room was on the backside of the building so we never heard any traffic noise.

This was our first stay at a Candlewood Suites. Booked the VERY inexpensive studio suite with 2 double beds, anticipating cramped quarters. Not so... very spacious and comfortable for a studio. Attractive, fully supplied kitchen, FULL sized refrigerator and freezer with ice maker, full sized microwave and dishwasher. A huge selection of TV channels including HBO. FREE use of laundry facilities.

Cleanest bathroom I've seen in years of hotels and motels, even compared to rooms I paid three times as much for. Everything polished and gleaming... not even the buildup of grime in the corners of the floor that I had started to think was just inevitable in hotel rooms. Nice, soft, thick towels.

Complimentary fruit and coffee in "The Cupboard". A nice, welcoming touch was a free bag of microwave popcorn left in the microwave along with a serving bowl.

Both staff members we met were very friendly and helpful. We'll stay here at every opportunity. If the McAlester Candlewood Suites is representative of the chain, I may be booking them instead of the Choice Hotels group I'm accustomed to booking, from now on! Could not be more pleased!

We were in Dallas visiting our grandson- left his house at 6 pm and wanted to get in a few hours on the road to make the second day of the trip back to Illinois a little shorter Didnt want to spend much money because we would get to the hotel around 10 pm and leave first thing in the morning So what a surprise this hotel was-darling little room with a kitchen, very clean, cute little bathroom Just very nice all the way around I highly recommend it

A great place for a stopover in Mcalester is the Candlewood Suites. I received a friendly greeting when I entered, got to spin the wheel for a gift, and was given the key card to my room quickly. The room was wonderful and had a exercise room to use after driving all day.
