“New, Clean and everything we could want in a suites hotel... :)”
Reviewed August 13, 2010

We just returned from a week at the Candlewood Suites. We had not stayed at this chain before and did not know what to expect. We were very pleased with our stay, and it was a real bargain at $99 a night. We had a large 1 BR suite. There was plenty of room for a family of three. Our daughter stayed on the pull out coach. She was cozy, but the AC is right near the coach so we had to bundle her up at night. The bedroom did not have a separate AC unit, but there is a fan in the wall, to help move the air into the bedroom. Despite this the BR always was a few degrees warmer.
There is a full kitchen, with all the utensils and appliances you need. I’ve stayed at other suites and they are always lacking in this area. The room was supper clean and everything seemed very new. The rooms were quite and large. The lights in the bedroom were a bit weird, as the switch on the wall turned all lights off in the room, and the small lamp by the bed could not be turned off without getting out of bed.
The common areas were also very clean. The staff was very helpful when ever we needed anything. They only have once a week housekeeping so if you want fresh towels, or need TP you ask the folks at the front desk and they happily take care or you. There is also a small store by the entrance in case you need any small food items. There is a super target and Kroger’s just down the street however.
There is free laundry which was great, the machines and laundry room was nice and clean. The pool was pretty small, but on most days we were the only ones using this. The pool area was also clean and tidy, with ample towels. As the hotel is near the medical center, there are many guests there who are receiving medical treatments. You have to zig zag through a few other parking lots to get to the hotel, and it can be hard to get in the right direction due to the traffic flow, which is very heavy. The hotel was set back enough from the traffic so you don’t hear it. There are plenty of services and places to eat, down S. Main Street.
Overall this was a great place for us, it was close to where we wanted to be, clean, new and a good deal for us. We would stay again.

This is an all-suite hotel, so all of the units have a kitchen, which is nice because you don't have to spend so much eating out. The hotel looks new and it is very well kept. First we stayed in a small suite (it may be called studio or efficiency). It had a queen-size beed, an armchair, small desk/table, and full kitchen. Since my husband and I are used to sleeping in a king-size bed, we decided to move to a one-bedroom suite. It was very, very nice, because it had a separate bedroom with TV, chest of drawers, nightstand, table, and closet (and one queen bed). Then there was a living room with another TV, armchair and a queen-size sofa bed. There was a full kitchen and a large desk/table. Also another closet. The bathroom in both types of units was roomy and nice. I liked the laminate floors in the kitchen and also the color scheme. They have a shuttle that runs Monday thru Friday and it takes you to the Medical Center and also to other places within 3 miles. The staff is very friendly and helpful. They make you feel welcome and at home. If I could change something, it would be to have some units with king beds. Otherwise it is perfect. It is not a fancy hotel, but it has everything you need.

I was a little hesitant to stay at this place with only one review to go by...BUT we decided it would be convenient since I was headed to Houston to have surgery at MD Anderson. Also after looking at the pictures online and getting a great rate, we couldn't pass it up. We needed a place with a kitchen, refrigerator, and separate bedroom. We found everything we needed and more at the Candlewood Suites Houston Medical Center.

The property had just been renovated this year and everything was really nice. We got to stay in Room 415 (top floor). Our suite had a separate room with a comfy Queen bed and flatscreen tv, a separate living area with flatscreen tv and sofa and leather recliner, a desk/table where my husband could work and we could eat dinner, a full sized refrigerator, stove, dishwasher and sink. All the utensils and pots were available as well. It was very clean and perfect for our stay. We weren't sure when the doctors would release me to go home, so this place is perfect for extended stays.

It's around 25 minutes from Hobby Airport and around 10 minutes away from the Medical Center. The staff was friendly and accommodating since after my surgery I couldn't talk. Even before we arrived we received the current medical rate given to those who will be staying long term or having procedures done in the nearby Medical Centers.

It was our home away from home. Should I need to go back to MD Anderson I plan on staying at the Candlewood Suites again. I probably will try to get a studio next time around since I'll be going by myself. Otherwise, the suites are great value. My husband and I could relax and feel comfortable.

I recommend anyone heading to Houston and needs to be in that area to stay at the Candlewood. It's a great place!!! They have free movies you can borrow, books and have a "Cupboard" where you can purchase food.
