We've never stayed at a Candlewood Suites, but we booked a room here based on all the glowing on-line reviews, and based on the fact they're owned by the same folks who own Holiday Inn, Intercontinental, etc. But we knew we'd been had as soon as we walked into the lobby with its crowded common area and blaring TV, shabby front desk area, and a non-stop stream of dogs coming and going ... most of them with their owners.
We tried to give these folks the benefit of the doubt and looked at two different rooms. But both were just as shabby as the lobby.
I will give credit to the young woman on duty who cancelled our reservation, even though we had stupidly agreed to terms that the room had to be cancelled 24 hours in advance. Never will we do that again. And never will we book an IHG franchise hotel again.
