I initially chose the Candlewood Suites due to the fact that they were an extended stay hotel.

Checked into the hotel around 9:30pm and went up to the room. While unpacking, I noticed that the carpet around the A/C was wet. Upon further examination, I found fungus, mold and mushrooms growing from the carpet. YES MUSHROOMS WERE LITERALLY GROWING OUT OF THE CARPET. I informed the front desk and was told there was one room left that... More

We moved hotels from another hotel in Lafayette due to cleanliness. The candlewood suites was perfect. Rockel the manager was so helpful. The entire staff, especially Matt, was great and friendly. Candlewood had dinners for guests, free laundry facilities, a gym and clean rooms! Thank you for the wonderful hospitality.
