I've stayed at a number of hotels in the area and have started asking my work travel agency to book me here every time. There are a few newer hotels recently opened in Midland I can't speak for, but this one is head and shoulders above most of the properties I've stayed in oil country. New, clean, good service, modern feel.

Very clean and spacious! Super friendly staff! The lady who checked us in gave me a free box of laundry detergent! I wish I could remember her name...she also put up with my three eager to get drunk buddies as we waited in the lobby for the cab that she called us. I'd go back in a heartbeat....if it weren't in Odessa. That place is crap!

Candlewood Suites in Odessa, Tx is amazing. They have the most amazing staff and the hotel is in prime location. Right on one of our main streets. For Thanksgiving they had food catered for their guest! How awesome and giving is that!!

My wife and I along with our 2 small children came to Odessa for a funeral. We made our arrangements well in advance and paid extra for a smooth stay. We drove 500+ miles from Houston. Upon check in, all was fine and the staff as well as the manager went out of their way to help. We were confident that all arrangements were good and we finally attempted to get some sleep after the long trip. Much to our amazement and disappointment we were woken up @ 7:30am with a call from the desk. The lady (Claudia) on the other end of the phone was extremely rude and stated over and over that we had to be out and that the room was already rented (keep in mind checkout is 11am). We advised her of our arrangement with the manager and she acted as if we had made an invalid arrangement. After getting tired of hearing my wife arguing with this excuse for an employee I finally said, "I have a receipt, would you like me to bring it to you", she quickly said, "oh, sorry". and hung up. It is unbelievable and unacceptable to me that she did not call her manager to double check the arrangements rather than disturb paying customers in town for a funeral that had very very little sleep. If your a serious business person or in town for a funeral, THIS IS NOT THE PLACE FOR YOU!!!

Although a little off the beaten path, in a soon-to-be thriving area, between Business 20 and I-20, it's still convenient to Hooters and Twin Peaks, and many other venues as well. The suites are well-planned and very nicely appointed. The accoutrements are nice as well, although skin lotion would be appreciated. Although there's no hotel kitchen, thus no complimentary breakfast or week-day "Manager's Reception", this hotel is far and above most others in the area. If you are lucky enough to check in when Sheena is behind the desk, you are indeed fortunate. She's as professional and cheery as can be!

I was very disappointed with my stay. Everytime I called the manager I was told a different price. I spoke with a young gal, Christian I think her name is, was rude and very unhelpful. She told me a different rate everytime I talked to her and seemed to not even care. I spent over 300 dollars for a room that wasn't even worth 100 dollars. The staff was so unfriendly, my room smelt like a sewer and I was unable to change rooms. I will never stay at any Candlewood Suites ever again, and I do not recommend anyone else to either.

When my husband experienced an emergency and needed a room quickly, the front desk went out of their way to promptly assist. The room and facilities were all perfect, and it appears to be brand new!

Great hotel and staff!
