I was expecting a lot more being that this had pretty good reviews, but we were extremely disappointed. The guy at check-in was really nice, so I had no issues with that. Once we got to our floor we were pretty taken aback. The hallway carpet had spots and stains all over it. Then once we got in the room... More

I was very conflicted on how to rate the hotel I stayed in for a week. There were somethings I liked very much and others not so much. Hotel Room - 3/5 The only reason the room itself is not a 5 is because the data port did not work, the recliner did not work and the dishwasher leaked over... More

This property is located near the mall so if you're needing to shop, it's very convenient. I stayed here for only one night to attend a family birthday party.

I always stay with Candlewood when I travel. I love their service and rooms are always clean. I travel often for work and I always look for the nearest Candlewood. I have yet to have a bad experience with them. The staff is always courteous and welcoming.

Staying on Bussiness at a rate our office negotiated. Not much service just a good room with no maid service. No clean towels unless you go get them and they don't make the beds. May have to do with the rates. I would stay again.
