Overall, this is a very nice, family- and pet-friendly hotel. The staff is very friendly and they are always available. The front desk is open 24hrs a day, as is a combination workout room, laundry area, and small "honor system" convenience store. The convenience store includes frozen meals and chips/snacks and drinks which can be made there or in your...

We never stayed in Candlewood before, and enjoyed our two days there. The room was large enough, fully equipped with a small kitchenet. Frig with freezer allows for plenty of options. Publix Grocery nearby where you can get anything you need. If you forget something, they have a lot of choices in their food cupboard. They also have great tasting...

Had reservations for Saturday spent the day in beautiful downtown St. Pete. Went to the hotel and it is in an industrial area nothing remotely nice around it. Took one look at the place and the clientele gathered in the parking lot and canceled my reservation. It may have been nice on the inside but the place gave me the...

When my sister and I checked in to our non smoking room, it was obvious that someone had been smoking very recently in that room. The odor was unmistakable. We could also smell as housekeeping was cleaning a strong chemical smell that was very overpowering. We asked for another room, but they were unable to give us one for an...

My wife and I stayed here for 5 days in early December. The first room assigned was very hot and I couldn't get the A/C working so I went back down to the front desk. The attendant went back to the room with me and messed with the controls for awhile, but couldn't make the A/C work. She first suggested...

I travel frequently and dread hotel stays due to the unpredictability of staff, guest behaviors as well as false representations. This means, my insomnia and lack of interest in being social makes me somewhat hard to please. With that said, the staff were GREAT, the halls were clean, the guests were quiet. The walls were thick, not once did I...

I had to stay here one night for work and will gladly stay there again in the future. I've not always had good luck with hotels in Clearwater so this was a win! Rooms are comfy and staff was friendly and accommodating.
