Front desk staff rude, unresponsive and ill prepared. One young lady in particular made it very evident that guests were an unwelcome inconvenience. She took what could have been a pleasant stay and turned it unpleasant very quickly.

My family came for a weekend getaway to D.C. We wanted to stay a little bit away from all the hustle and bustle and decided to stay at the Candlewood. I spoke with Menar upon arrival and she was amazing. She upgraded us to a suite because there were 5 of us... That was awesome! Our room was very nice... More

We are a military family who moved to Fort Belvoir and needed a place to stay for a couple of weeks while we waited for our home to become available. For us, the price of the suite offered at this hotel combined with the location made staying here the logical choice. Having said that, the hotel staff was what really... More

We chose this hotel for it's location (only reason it got it's second star to get to a "poor" rating vs. "terrible") close to Mount Vernon so that we did not have to travel far after spending the day with the Washington's.

It's decently priced, the rooms are very nice, but the clientele honestly leaves something to be desired. And the barking dogs in the rooms beside you can drive you nuts. I'm surprised and disappointed that this is allowed. I was also disappointed that they messed up my wakeup call. Still, this is a nice location, and the staff tries pretty... More

I checked into the Candlewood Suites on Mon, 6/13/2016.
