“all the pros and cons of a studio apartment”
Reviewed June 29, 2012

I found the candlewood suites to be a comfortable option near the Portland Airport. The rooms are remarkably quiet given the location near the freeway and beneath the flight path of the airplanes. The bed was also quite comfortable. The room has all of the pros and cons of a studio apartment. Yes, you get a nice kitchen area plus a stove, But you also get a full size refrigerator in your bedroom which can generate a lot of noise. ( turn off that ice-maker!). I also found it hard to sleep because many of the kitchen appliances have green glowing digital displays which illuminate the room at night. I recommend this for travelers who want to set up a 'base camp' for an extended stay in Portland. Shuttle bus runs every 30 mins to the terminal

We stayed only one night, but was impressed. The room was clean and comfortable. We chose it because it was within walking distance of the Budget Rental Car return.
The hotel was overbooked and some of our party was relocated across the street in the La Quinta. They, too, had a nice stay and their room was free because of the overbook.

Room Tip: Great location to return your rental car late at night. Breakfast was not provided, but the room had...

The complimentary shuttle service from the airport to the hotel sets a positive tone for the rest of the stay. Candlewood is comfortable and very conveniently located next to the airport. The rooms are clean and large, as are the kitchenette and bathroom, and there is a fitness center as well as a business center and laundry which help travelers feel right at home. Thank you!

We had a King 2 room suite which became our own fully fitted private space with appropriate mod cons. Staff were helpful and friendly and location was convenient for access to centre by car or the nearby Max light rail system. Could not fault it and would stay again.

Your mentioning of the staff being friendly and helpful makes me so proud. We look froward to seeing you again soon.

Stayed here overnight on arrival at Portland airport. This is a suites hotel and best for more lengthy stays, and it is a very comfortable and seemingly efficiently run place. The bed was comfortable. The tv in good shape. Sitting and eazy chairs. Large refrigerator and basics for cooking, including stove. Enjoyed the complimentary popcorn for popping in the microwave. The laundry was FREE! They have a small store of essential goods and foods that you can access with your hotel key, and pay for on the honor system. This is a very well conceived and run budget suites hotel and I highly recommend it. The staff very friendly and helpful.

Dear frequenttraveler072,

Thank you so much for your thorough review. We are so glad you enjoyed all the amenities we offer which allow you to work, live and play on your own terms and not ours. We appreciate you mentioning our free guest laundry as this helps ease the burden while you are on vacation, relocating or temporary assignment for work. Also, we are ecstatic you enjoyed the Candlewood Cupboard's "honor system" as it is conducted in such a way to show each guest we value them and want them to feel like they are at home. We look forward to hosting you again as your travel brings you to Portland. Thank you.

This was my first stay at Candlewood suites, on a family vacation to Portland. The hotel has everything your family may need, without the frills that will increase your room rates. We liked to room quality (looked new, clean bathrooms), full kitchen with stove, toaster, microwave etc., laundry facilities, complimentary shuttle service and friendly hotel staff.
Everything was perfect for a quick overnight stay before or after a long flight.

Room Tip: Ignore ratings for Swimming pool and restaurant - this hotel doesnt have a pool or restaurant as far...
