Candlewood suites is a Holiday Inn property and a extended stay hotel for those who do not know. This particular one in Hattiesburg is new but I experienced some glitches during my stay in October of 2009.
These rooms have a refrigerator, stove, and everything you need to do your own cooking if you wish too. The hotel is driving distance from plenty of places to eat close by like Cracker Barrel or just a few miles to the next exit where you will find Red Lobster, Outback, Longhorn, Chilis, Olive Garden, etc.
After a slow checkin, I retired to my room only to find that the new digital TV did not work. They immediately moved me to another room as they could not make the TV come work. Thats glitch 1.
After being moved into the second room, the next morning I found out that the hair dryer did not work. In both cases the appliances were broken, not a tripped circuit breaker. You would think maid service would be checking these items as 2 broken items in two days surprised me. Also the wireless internet was not working at the time I was there so they gave you a cat cable for hardwiring to the internet.
The hotel itself is clean and busy. A lot of military seem to base out of this hotel so it is at times busy with extended stay travelers. I would recommend this hotel though I think they need to check appliances in the rooms better. Maid service also is Not a daily event unless you request it and put a magnet on the door. Being extended stay, they do not clean every room, every day but the rooms are clean and the area is quite safe.
I would recommend this hotel but it woulid not be my first choice again.
