“Nice place. Clean comfy rooms.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014 via mobile

We stayed 3 nights. Very comfortable stay. Nice to have a full kitchenette with stove, microwave and full fridge with freezer. Full size grocery store was less than a block away. Kwik Trip convenience store also only a block away. Commerce turns into 4th street which brings you right into the heart of downtown (about a mile walk). You can also take nearby walk way under a bridge which will take you right down by the river past the Oktoberfest grounds. Staff was very pleasant and helpful. Stayed over 4th of July weekend and really enjoyed the riverfront fireworks on the evening of the 4th along with the other Riverfest activities.

Stayed July 2014, traveled with family

Although we only stayed one night, this hotel is really aimed at extended stay visitors. It is just north of downtown La Crosse. There are a few small restaurants nearby, but you need to drive a ways for full service restaurants. There is also a grocery store about 200 yards away, which is perfect for extended stay travelers, since each unit has a kitchen. Our two room suite was very clean and comfortable, and the folks at the front desk were pleasant and helpful. This was our second stay there and would probably stay again, although the Marriott Courtyard downtown is probably a better choice for short term stays. for those who want to exercise, there is a walking/biking trail along the La Crosse river that can be accessed about 400 yards from the house just over the bridge. All in all, a good experience.

Room Tip: some people may not want a room facing the highway (front of building) although the rooms seemed to...

Spent two nights here. Nice quiet rooms with good beds. Sleep quality was great. Clean and modern with reasonable rates. The staff was friendly and helpful. All the qualities to make nice hotel. Nice to have a good grocery store within a stone's throw. A bit away from downtown and the River park; but it is still walkable if you're not a total wimp. All in all, a good place to stay in Lacrosse

Room Tip: Quieter on the backside away from the highway

Although my stay was only 1 night the hotel was in a good location and the desk clerk was very helpful. He recognized for being a rewards member and offer me a drink. The pantry was well stocked but the hotel did not offer breakfast, The first time I have stayed at a Candlewood property and I don't know if this is the norm.

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel. We are glad you had a pleasant stay with us. It is a standard for all Candlewood Suites to not have a complimentary continental breakfast. This is why we try to keep the Candlewood Cupboard (our pantry) well stocked and reasonably priced to offer a breakfast option besides preparing breakfast in the kitchen in your room. We appreciate you mentioning this in your review so our future guests know what to expect when they stay with us.

Thanks again!

We spent three nights at the Candlewood Suites and were very satisfied with our choice of hotel. The suite was spacious and quite comfortable, and offered an excellent location as well. The proximity of a well appointed grocery store was a plus as well. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We would gladly stay there again and would certainly recommend it to other travelers.

The comfort, quality and location of a studio apartment in hotel style is A+! Charming staff and happy guests produce the smiles every day. Walking distance to downtown, yet outside downtown. Steps away from places to eat, and grocery shopping. Quick drives or bus rides to other shopping areas.

Room Tip: You can ask for a room on the east side for a view, but all the rooms (studios) are great!!!!!

Thanks for the wonderful review of Candlewood Suites of La Crosse. You are very complimentary to say our staff is charming. They loved to hear that! And, you highlighted everything else we love about our hotel. Thanks, too, for sharing the great tip of reserving a room on the east side (the back of the hotel). Some call it a marsh and others a pond, but either way the view out back is the preferred one.

We hope to see you again, soon!

We were visiting family in the area and needed a pet friendly hotel, so we decided to try the Candlewood Suites. We didn't have any experience with the hotel chain, but the reviews were positive. My review is positive as well. The property was very clean and well appointed. We had the one bedroom suite. The kitchen had a microwave, full sized fridge, electric stove top and a dishwasher. Granite countertops in the kitchen and bathroom. The bed was very comfortable. We had a room facing the back so it was very quiet at night. There is a nice grassy area in the back for walking the dog.
The hotel is next to a little strip mall that has a pizza place for takeout, and a grocery store if you want to buy food to make in the room.
Just be aware that there is no pool, nor do they have breakfast service which would have been nice since other hotels like Homewood Suites that are billed as extended stay have complimentary breakfast included with the price of the room.
That aside, it was a very nice property and a good stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the back -it will be quieter than the rooms facing the street.

Thank you for your review of Candlewood Suites La Crosse. We are so happy you and your pet enjoyed your time with us! Thank you for giving future guests an accurate description of our amenities, too. We appreciate you sharing your experience so that everyone can make informed choices.

We focus on the amenities that our extended stay guests appreciate the most, but in order to keep our costs down which keeps our rate down, we don't offer a pool or a free continental breakfast. We hope that between the offerings in the Candlewood Cupboard and the grocery store next door, it is convenient and affordable for you to prepare and eat all your meals in your room with your fully stocked kitchen. If it's nice outside, the Gazebo Grills are great for that, too.

Thanks again for the review, and safe travels!
