For the price in this area, I expected more, for 140 a night. hotel staff was nice and friendly, but amenities were few and far between. No free breakfast, not even continental or even a pop tart!

This was our first stay at Candlewood Suites and we will look for these properties on all of our future travels. The room was spacious and quiet, the beds and linens were comfortable, and the kitchen was well equipped with everything needed to fix anything from a warm up to a full meal, including cutlery. Even though no breakfast was...

I stayed here for a few days and staff was very helpful. Shamica helped me check-in and was courteous and helpful. Rooms were nice and clean. Only problem was that on one of the mornings, when I went down to get coffee, there was no sugar. I think they need to manage their inventory better. Luckily, it was not a...

Stay Report 3/14 - 3/16 Location: The hotel is located on W.T. Harris Blvd (NC-24) a little over a mile from University City Blvd (NC-49) and UNCC. This means within a couple miles is everything you'll need: grocery stores, banks, movie theaters, the post office etc. Downtown Charlotte is about a 15-20 minute drive away and CLT is probably about...

It was a comfortable stay But did have dirty towels in the bathroom and the tub wasn't clean well. Very reasonably priced. Comfortable bed. It's near a very good seafood restaurant and pizza joint. Staff was friendly and helpful.

I spent a night here, and the bathroom smelled like pure smoke. I didn't want to even take a shower there. In the morning I told the desk guy, and he just oh sorry. Also the hotel was pretty beat up with damaged furniture and walls.
