I enjoyed my stay and the staff were professional very friendly. I was not aware that it was an extended stay hotel, but I really enjoyed my stay. I will be staying there from now on. Also, it's close to the beach.

The rooms have a comfortable home like feeling with all the conveniences of the kitchenettes and especially the beds that are so comfortable…The best choice to make is Candlewood. The prices are much better than your average motel type. The outdoor heated...

Candlewood Suites is home away from home, very nice staff, well kept, the kitchenette was very nice and well stocked with the needs to cook and eat. The little store area was very nice and priced reasonable. The laundry facility was very clean.

Stayed here for 4 nights to visit Sanibel/Captiva/Fort Myers beaches. Location is great, albeit a bit off the beaten track-- next to a school, with no restaurants or shops within walking distance, but that makes it very private and quiet. Our room was a 2 bed suite, and it was quite comfortable, with a few minor exceptions (hence my 4...

First time to the area and we wanted an extended stay with close access to the best beaches and nature reserves without the cost of "on-beach" lodging. This is the perfect spot! Just a couple miles from the turn-offs to both main beach areas. The accommodations are good and clean, and the staff can provide just about anything you need...

Thank you very much for your kind review. We love when guests discuss the awesome ammenities that we have to offer and that people see them as a luxury. We definitely do see us being tucked away as a plus as it does allow our area to generally be more secure and quiet. Thank you very much!

Excellent staff. All were very nice and so helpful. Great ideas on where to eat and hang out. New equipment in the gym. Good location. Pool. Free laundry. Rooms have every single thing you need for your stay. But overall, the heartfelt staff was what stuck out in my mind. A+++

Every single person who is working here is exceptional. Tons of energy and it looks like they love to work here and they love their customers. This is my place to go in Fort Myers during Spring Training, and it is highly recommended.

Quiet, clean, secluded and excellent value. This is an extended stay hotel so it includes kitchen facilities. It is in a somewhat secluded location so it is very quiet which I liked. That means no bars, restaurants or shopping within walking distance. We do not spend a lot of time in the hotel so it is a great home base....
