Let me first start about the area, not the best that this hotel is located in. Parking lot is dimly lit. Staff was friendly and very accommodating. Place must be pet friendly which is fine but hallways smelled of cheap air fresher and actually it was overbearing during the night we stayed, not sure what it was masking or why...

Thank you for your review 2Bunnygirl. I'm sorry to read that you didn't fully enjoy your stay with us and that there was a noise issue while you stayed. We would have been happy to help with that by calling the above room for you. We always want our guests to be comfortable. We also DO have long term residents...

Arrived Friday May 12th, was greeted as soon as we walk through door. I apologize as I forget the names on the male and female guest receptionists. Both were extremely friendly and went out of there way to make us feel welcome. Stayed until Sunday morning checkout. Asked if we could check out a little late to attend mass and...

It was going to be a busy week at Berks Fest and accommodation was tight and I was fortunate to find a room here. Although its an apartment hotel I found this to be better suited in that you dont have a hundred people at breakfast everyday. Nice and quiet. My thanks to Edelyn, Merrilia and Rachel for making me...

I stayed here a few weeks ago and overall it was a great stay. I have stayed here before and enjoyed it as well. The lady at the front desk was very nice and attentive... I arrived before check in time but my room was ready so she checked me in and was very helpful suggesting activities in the area...

Thank you for your review Barbara and for bringing your concerns to light for us. There are some delivery companies that we work with that unfortunately do not allow their staff members to travel up to personal rooms any longer, and that is a policy per delivery service. I'm sorry that this changed for you however we do not have...

I was very impressed with my room it was nicely designed and very comfortable. The front desk was welcoming and helpful. The bed was so amazing I didn't want to get up. My only true complaint was the shower had no pressure and the shower head was crappy otherwise my stay was fantastic.

Candlewood was a nice hotel. I had never stayed in a Candlewood before, so was unaware of not having complementary breakfast. The room was nice, but my neighbors upstairs must have thought 1am was the time to jump around. The staff was nice and courteous. Prime location for restaurants and such. Good place to stay if your looking for rooms...

We stayed 1 night for a mini getaway. Everyone we met was very friendly and accommodating. The hotel was clean and bed was very comfortable. We were just surprised at the size of the room. For a "suites" hotel, this was anything but. Although it did have a full sized kitchen - we expected a larger room with at least...

We stayed here a couple years ago and again this year-- and unfortunately, the property seems to be on a downhill slide. The staff is excellent-- they seem to genuinely care about guests' comfort and I appreciated that. But the stove didn't work, the wall-mounted hairdryer was broken (which they replaced quickly), the shower was so weak I had to...
