I have been in this hotel since Thursday afternoon and tomorrow (Sunday) is my 3rd and last night here, my room has not been cleaned ONCE, I have not gotten new towels or any refills on coffee or even toilet paper. The room isn't bad at all I must say, but housekeeping is a MUST for me. Just called front...

Hi Victoria T, I'm sorry to hear that you are not having a great experience at the Candlewood Suites! As an extended stay property, we only offer housekeeping service once a week (every 7 days), due to the nature of our hotel. We do this in order to offer privacy to our guests so that someone is not coming into...

The hotel is close to a lot of great restaurants and bars. The room cleaning was horrible. We had hairs in our new sheets ("That's just the way it is") and the rest of the cleaning was so poor that we had to buy our own cleaning products to clean the bathroom and kitchenette. We tried getting them to clean...

Stayed 9 days due to a death in the family. The hotel was clean and comfortable. The staff friendly.

The best thing I can say about this location was the beds were very comfortable and the room was very clean. There were a couple issues that prevent me from really recommending this location. Getting to the hotel, you have to take run the block, as there are no left turns allowed. When I arrived, I was greeted to an...

I travel for business about 45 weeks a year. Maybe my expectations have become too highbrow, but this establishment does not meet my needs. The evening staff is terrific and very accommodating. They have solved every minor issue I requested. The morning staff, if I can find anyone, isn't involved in any kind of customer satisfaction. I received my checkout...

We stayed here during a recent jazz festival in the area. The suites were large and we had a separate kitchen and living area. Staff was welcoming and friendly. We used the on site store for a small purchase. The only thing missing was an indoor swimming pool. Very nice location.

I had never stayed in one of these establishments until now. I love that everything is so convenient. They have a mini grocery store in the lobby and the items were very reasonably priced compared to other hotels who offer the same thing. Most importantly, the room was very clean and comfortable.
