Reviewed December 21, 2012

This is a very convienient place to stay for overnight park-and-fly out of Dulles. The staff are friendly. The hotel is very basic. It is not a luxury accomodation by any means but is clean and servicable. By staying one night in the hotel you can leave your car in the parking lot at no extra charge (I'm not sure how long your can leave it with no extra charge but it's at least 2 weeks). They give you $20 to pay for your taxi and will call the taxi for you on your outbound flight. We have stayed here several times in the past several years and have always felt that our car was safe to be left there.

Thank you Lollypupon for taking the time to write us a review. I see you got a package with a travel agent that includes your taxi fare with the rate. Yes, we do offer a Park and Fly program. If you stay for one night, you get free parking for two weeks guaranteed. Keep in mind that although we don’t have shuttle service, Dulles Airport is only four miles away and doesn’t cost much with a taxi. I am delighted that you felt welcomed by our friendly team members and that our accommodations met your expectations. Thank you for your continued patronage of our hotel. We are looking forward to being of service to you again next time.

This is an excellent hotel.

First, let me set your expectations. It is a basic long-term stay hotel (though also fine for short stays; mine was three days). That means only weekly visits from housekeeping, like most long-term stay hotels. As a basic hotel, the frills and luxuries are minimal. Yet for a basic hotel, it is quite nice, even upscale.

The hotel itself is clean and well-lit, and the staff is friendly. There is a guest laundry which is free to both wash and dry, which is quite remarkable. There is also a small store with basic food items and toiletries, such as fruit, cereal, microwave dinners, laundry detergent, etc. It is great to have an on-site basic fitness center, laundry and convenience store.

The room is spacious and also clean and well-lit, and has a kitchenette with a sink, full-size refrigerator, dishwasher (!), microwave, small coffee maker, toaster, dishes, utensils, and pans. The hotel even provides complimentary paper towels and detergent both for hand washing and machine washing dishes.

The room also has a good-sized flat-screen TV with DVD/VHS player and cable, an ironing board and iron, and hairdryer. The hotel has a decent size lending library from which you can borrow movies.

There is a desk for working and eating, and free internet is available both WiFi and via a wired connection, which is less common in hotels and appreciated as it is (somewhat) more secure and reliable. They even include the cable you need to use the wired connection, a very nice touch.

I only have one caveat of staying here: the hot water is extremely hot. I have never seen water so hot come out of a tap. Be careful or you could burn yourself. I would be concerned about this if traveling with children. Also, not really a caveat, but there are no restaurants or stores in the immediate vicinity of the hotel, so you will need to drive a mile or two if you need something.

Compared to other extended stay hotels I've stayed at, this one is very clean, very nice. It's the small touches that make a big difference.

If you're looking for a luxury hotel, look elsewhere. If you're looking for a clean, comfortable room at a reasonable price, this is a good hotel.

Candlewood had exactly the amenities I wanted, and didn't waste their resources on things I didn't care about. There was a full-size refrigerator in the room! and a stove-top, and a microwave. I was able to go to the grocery store and get the food I wanted ... the exercise treadmill had a heart-rate monitor that worked! They even had a little self-serve food mart at great prices. I'd be delighted to stay here again.

Large spacious rooms with kitchenettes and 10-15 minutes from Dulles. Hotel is on the Dulles flight path so depending on wind direction, you may hire jets taking off over the unit, which can be distracting to sleep.

Main issue is that this hotel is in a typical American concrete corporate sub-division and there is nothing within walking distance other than offices and other hotels. Taxi service was sporadic and unreliable so if you are looking for a restaurant and shopping, you better have a car.

Dear Skierz, I understand you had a less than satisfactory experience with our hotel. I apologize you were distracted by the jets flying over us. Normally, if you have your windows closed you won’t hear it at all. As for restaurants and shopping, the nearest shopping center is just a mile away from us, which is only about 15 minutes to walk to. They have a number of restaurants and a grocery store as well. I hope you will try us again next time you are in the area. Thank you for writing us a review.

My husband and I have stayed for three weeks and from day one we had a great experience. The staff are wonderful and so helpful and always smiling. Everything is convenient in the hotel, laundry room, gym and in house store.
The hotel location is great, shops nearby and you can go for long walks.

We highly recommend it.
