“Nothing fancy but fine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2014

It is not 5 star but it doesn't try to be.
If you are just looking for a clean inexpensive place then this is a fine choice
I see a number of negative reviews especially regarding the staff. I had no trouble. Check in and out were fine, I needed another pillow and picked it up from the desk. Not exactly alot of interaction but everybody was pleasant to me.

1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2014 via mobile

All went wrong from the time I checked in. I had requested a 1st floor room with making my reservations 2 weeks in advance for a pre-paid room and was given a room on the third floor. My reservations consisted a total of 3 days. The first two nights were first maid, then I decided to make it a third night and was told I had to checkout first and hen check back in. The bathroom sink was clogged. After my first two nights, I was told that housekeeping services were for every seven days. I had requested clean towels and I was told by the lady in the front desk that she would clean my towels for me. Totally unacceptable in my view. I have frequently stayed at Candlewood Suites and have never been treated this way. You really need to re-train your staff and remind them of customer service. Too too many choices of Hotels, to seal with all this.

I am a 28 year old female and I haven't stayed at the Candlewood in Horsham in a few months but when i do come to the area i always stay here. Despite the front desk having a little attitude depending on the day.... depends whos working ( i work in retail .. I've dealt with worse) The rooms are beyond spacious and always clean! NEVER A SMELL. i love the fact that they have a flat screen on the walls and a full kitchen in all the rooms. I made a few meals there and they had every pot, pans and utensils i needed. The big fridge is a plus! The shower is clean and so is the bathroom. The bed is linen is always clean n fresh and sooo comfortable. A lot of parking and entrances.. very safe environment. A place for a family , friends, business, couples, or even alone. I see alot of NEGATIVE reviews on this place but honestly for the ones who are having a second guess about coming here THINK AGAIN this is the best deal in town and cleanest ESPECIALLY FOR A SUITE! :-)

After a red eye flight from the west coast, I was happy when my room was ready before noon. After signing my life away that I won't smoke in my room, I was greeted by the smell of stale smoke as I opened my door!
As I get an early check in, I didn't want to push my luck. When I complained in the morning , the manager promised to give me 1000 priority club points. The rate was very reasonable and the room was otherwise ok. Be forewarned, there is no food nearby, just some office buildings

I stayed for three nights on business. The good parts are their In room TV listings and internet. The suite had a non working telephone, iron box, dishwasher etc. if you are staying for less than a week, then no service is provided to your room. So no cleaning, no towel replacements, no replacements of coffee etc. There is no complimentary breakfast or evening snacks. Not sure what is their business model, but certainly not good enough to have me back there.

I stayed at Candlewood for four months while working in the area. The staff and management did everything they could to make the stay as pleasant as possible. The two rooms I stayed in (moved from a regular room to a 1 bedroom suite after a month or so) were both recently refurbished, comfortable, and quiet.

The area has plenty of places to eat and shop, though not within reasonable walking distance. The area felt reasonably safe and had great trails for walking/biking that go right by the hotel.

My only minor complaint was the billing. They billed my credit card at irregular intervals, which made tracking the costs a challenge.

Would I stay there again? Absolutely. I hated to leave there and move to another hotel 30 miles away. If it wasn't for the horrific Philly traffic, I would still be there and make the drive everyday.

Room Tip: Stay on the top floor if possible and the west side of the hotel. All the rooms are reasonable quiet...

We stayed here Labor Day weekend and had a lovely time. We opted to stay in a one bedroom unit (102) so that Precious Angel could take naps or go to sleep while we were able to watch tv. I don't know if it was the renovation or the different room we stayed in, but we had many more dishes and it didn't seem wasteful to run the dishwasher. The staff was pleasant and friendly. The only concern we had while we were there was that someone kept propping the door open on the end of the building near our room with a convenient stone. It may be useful for the manager or staff to periodically check to see if there are stones being left around as props and also for them to check periodically that the outdoor doors are secure. The neighborhood is fine, so I wasn't overly concerned, but I did have to close the door about once a day. The bed was comfortable and had plenty of sheets and blankets. The renovated kitchen appliances all seemed to work properly for us. We had a great stay and we will be back.
