Reviewed 4 January 2017

Very nice and spacious rooms, the staff were helpful and friendly, housekeeping was attentive and always helpful when needed. It was great to have a treadmill handy, the free laundry was an unexpected and appreciated surprise, as well as the computer in the lobby. Great coffee on the house! Would recommend!!

I booked this place at the last minute and had no issues getting the room of my choice. The front desk clerk was very helpful and offered to help me with my luggage. The room itself was spacious and the kitchenette was very nice and clean. It included a full size refrigerator, cooktop and dishwasher. The location was ideal as...

We had made reservations for 9 nights. Our dog was injured and had surgery the day we were to leave and arrive at the hotel. Not only did they understand and not charge us for that night, but we found out this is a pet friendly establishment. We have never taken a pet with but we had to keep an...

We were double charged for our stay and treated with utter disrespect, being insomuch as told to "Not Waste Our Breath" because they wouldn't honor their OWN online rates..and we had to deal with this, all while in town caring for a terminally ill family member.

This place seems to have thought of most everything a traveler could need...AND it's very clean, well maintained, with comfy beds. This is our 2nd stay here and we'll be back when we need to stay in the area.

Personnel were pleasant enough but never fixed...

I wasn't aware that this hotel was an extended stay place and they don't have a continental breakfast. Our hostess went out of her way and gave us food out of the vending machines for breakfast at no charge. True, it wasn't great food, but most continental breakfasts are only average anyway. A very, very accomodating hostess in all ways....

In my 22 years of traveling six to eight months a year I have never and hope to ever come across an establishment of any kind like this one.

After catching a terrible storm while driving through Wisconsin, we were forced to stop earlier in our road trip than anticipated, and we ended up at the Candlewood Suites.
