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.
