This is a little older location and it seemed to be a bit of a moldy smell in the room but the staff was very nice and overall the room was very clean. Nice stay, business center and gym standard. This is extended stay do not expect daily breakfast or room cleaning. Requests are accepted however.

Loved my 4 month stay in Lafayette, except for the Candlewood Suites. It reeks of cigarette smoke, animals & sewer. Was stuck there due to floods in area. First room had mold on ceiling. Housekeeping almost non-existent. Had drug bust there one weeked during my stay. Would love to work in Lafayette again soon, won't be staying at Candlewood!

My husband and I had to stay at the hotel for 8 weeks and it was nearly a nightmare. Staff seemed great, friendly, and accommodating; however, this goes away once you're there for a while (which is its intended purpose). They claim to be pet-friendly, however half the staff were scared of my 2 under 20 lbs dogs. They skipped...
