“Value for Money!”
Reviewed July 26, 2014

The Candlewood Suites at Topeka is a value for money place for people who dont want the fringe benefits of a luxury chain.
This is especially true for long stays since this hotel is equipped with a neat kitchenette with all essential appliances for cooking up a meal or two. The rooms are fairly spacious, the bed is comfy, there is a television to provide some entertainment. Breakfast isn't on the house but you can pick up corn flakes, milk, juices, bread and other items from the small shop next to the lobby. The hotel has a small gym for some workouts when needed. There is a ample parking available.
The staff is very courteous and helpful.
Topeka being a small place, most of the restaurants are close by within a 3-4 mile radius and there are plenty of options.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms away from the highway side to avoid some noise.

Smelly and gross. There were stains on the sheets. The fitness room was hot and humid. Stains on the furniture. Stains on everything. Someone else's leftovers in the fridge. Smelled like cigarettes. It was just nasty and ruined me for Candlewood Suites.

The hotel room itself was nice and very clean. Bed comfortable. Pillows were flat. We had pre-registered as 4 people being in the room but there were only 3 towels and there was no bedding for the sofa sleeper. When I called the desk they said the bedding and towel would be waiting at the front desk. In other hotels staff would be happy to deliver those to the room. Power was out for a couple hours in the early morning. That could have been a problem if we had used their alarm clocks and it was dark for taking showers but we managed just inconvenient.

I was on a business trip and stayed in this Hotel for 4 weeks. To be sweet and short it was quite a good experience. If you are on an extended stay I would certainly recommend this. Some of the pluses are as below:
1. Kitchen in each room along with vessels. The kind of facility is good enough to manage a decent cooking :)
2. Free washer & dryer - A must for extended stay
3. Cupboard available in Hotel - All essential items available - So need to look out for Walmart or Target nearby
4. If you still want Walmart and Target are within 2 mile radius, plus you find all major retail outlets like BestBuy, HomeDepot, ToyzRus, Dillards, DSG within 3 miles radius
5. If you are Indian and looking for good Indian items, an Indian Departmental store is available within 2 mile radius
On the flip side,
1. No free breakfast
2, Not an attractive gym

So overall a good one for extended stay!

Room Tip: Choose a room away from the highway, i.e. do not choose rooms like 100 - 102, 200 - 202, 300 - 302...

I have stayed at many hotels, whether travel or just to have a staycation. The staff and the location are excellent. I get lost quite easily, so with the location being so close to everything it was really easy. I am also an early bird, so I go to sleep early, there were no noises to disturb me. You usually hear the little kids running around or people being roudy, but not here. I am really good at forgetting things, and the front desk was amazing. They helped me with everything that I needed. If I ever need to stay somewhere in Topeka would definitely stay here again (especially for the price).

If you enjoy dirty rooms, going to the front desk for clean towels, a rude staff, and a phantom manager, then this is the place for you!!! If you have ANY problems or concerns GOOD LUCK getting them resolved. For being part of the IHG brand of hotels, this hotel falls FAR short of the quality that is expected. Do yourself a favor, and take the advise of other...AVOID AT ALL COST...DON'T WALK RUN TO THE NEAREST EXIT. If you want points for room stays there is a Holiday Inn Express that is nice. There is also a very nice Hampton Inn that is clean, has a friendly staff and is very reasonable (that is where I ended up staying at my second time in Topeka and enjoyed it). Who ever owns this property, I suggest that while you are cleaning the rooms, do some house cleaning with the front desk staff and manager. This is the most POORLY ran hotel ever.

We stayed at this business over Thanksgiving 2013 and it was a horrible experience. NEVER had room service, had to get the keys to the room re-keyed several times. The last time, the front desk clerk stated "you're in the wrong room". Well that is understandable since we checked ourselves in, processed the credit card payment and keyed the access......it must have been our fault also that we had no housekeeping, had to go to front desk every day to secure clean towels, never had bed linens changed. Considering the minimal number of vehicles in the parking lot, it amazes me that the location stays in business. As an apology, the last night of asking for the keys to be re-accessed, the front desk gave us $5.00 worth of the antique items in the "snack area". The last morning upon exit we left items in the closet. Called the next day and spoke with Taylor who was extremely helpful, Taylor get another job with another hotel - you are needed at a real hotel. Taylor said to call on the following Monday and ask for Jennifer, Manager. To this day have never spoken to or heard from this mystery person. When the call was made on Monday and the Jennifer manager was not available, the person on duty screamed into the phone that we needed to speak with Housekeeping. When we pressed to speak with Jennifer, we were transferred to the voice mail. Upon checking back, we later learned that Jennifer was on a weeks vacation. Odd. In any event, we did contact the corporate customer service, mailed a bounce-back box to the hotel, listed our items in the complaint and asked that the items be placed into the box and shipped back. The individual front desk person, Chris put the items in the box and shipped. Thank goodness for FedEx. We would not recommend this business to ANYONE as a resource for overnight accommodations, EVER. We will stick to Holiday Inn Express and not venture out to any other businesses regardless of relationship within the corporate structure. The concept of this business is perfect, kitchenette, large room, moderate bathroom size and decent sized room. BETTER MANAGEMENT OF THIS LOCATION is needed. But as an example it represents what the corporation "allows" in a management style or lack of.
