“Surprisingly good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013 via mobile

I made a last minute reservation here, based on TA. I walked into a sparse lobby and was a little concerned. The hallway to my room looked very basic and a little worn. But when I opened the door to my room - let's just say that I was very pleasantly surprised. Nice, clean room with a kitchen area. Great workout area. Only downside is no breakfast. But for the price, this is a great place.

Stayed October 2013, traveled on business

We stayed here while visiting my father who was in the hospital. This was our first time to stay here. It is really a great choice for us.
First what it has: good beds, plenty of room, a full sized refrigerator and cooktop.
What is doesn't have: daily cleaning (easy swap of towels and linens as needed). Weekly cleaning. Breakfast....plenty of options around.

And best, it was about $45 per night cheaper than their competitors.

Dog friendly as well.
We will stay here again.

When traveling to smaller communities, it can often be challenging to find nice accommodations where options are limited. I was pleasantly surprised that Candlewood Suites has consistently provided me with spacious, clean and modern facilities which meet my expectations. I have always stayed here when returning to town. You won't be disappointed.

Nice room with good location. Good price. Full kitchen was nice. One thing to be aware of: The kitchen contains a full size refrigerator with an ice maker inside the freezer. The ice falling into the empty bin during the night woke me up a few times. If you are a light sleeper you may want to lift up the little bar in the icemaker in order to turn off the production of ice during the night.

Friendly staff, fairly new facility. Easily accessible to the highway and dining options . The rooms were very clean and my bed slept great! Great sheets! I didn't want to get out of bed. Business Center computer was having issues so I couldn't do what I needed to do, but overall this is a great place esp. if you're on a budget. As an IHG Rewards member, this was my first stay at a Candlewood and they won me over.

Great place because of great staff and bed was wonderful. Shower, excellent! They also provided a discount at a local restaurant "rib crib" for our convenience. I rented 3 rooms AND ALL WHO TRAVELED WITH ME ENJOYED THE STAY.

Room Tip: King suite for single is a fine choice of privacy and comfort

Lower price with FULL-SIZE fridge and mini-kitchen! Brand new, quiet, great beds, super clean. Why pay for a smelly/chlorine swimming pool & spa (which we find is often out of order or indoors w/loud noise, hot, & humid) that you don't use anyway? Same goes for the BIG caloric breakfast . . . There's not one, just free fresh fruit & coffee 24/7, plus an in-house grocery with good selection of food, snacks & drinks at reasonable prices. Staff we encountered had great sense of pride, were well-trained, customer oriented, and genuinely seemed to care-- which is expected at pricier resorts, but not usually found at this price point. The only drawback we found (and we are picky, picky, picky) is that the rooms are not equipped with a folding luggage stand. For the price, we can live without it. We will return.
