This was the first time I had stayed in a Candlewood. I can't put my finger on anything that I would say was wrong with it, but I missed the breakfast, and amenities that I usually find in other IHG properties, like Holiday Inn and Crown Plaza. It is nice to have insight dining and bar options, and the pool...

This was just an overnight stay, arriving late and leaving before checkout. But I will plan to stay here again if I need to stay in this area, and I will also look into this chain when I travel other places. Great towels, comfortable bed, room was large (I had an ADA room though, so not sure what a non-ADA...

I stayed at Candlewood prior to an early-morning flight, and couldn't be happier. The hotel is very clean and reasonably priced, and the staff friendly and helpful. Driving time to the airport terminal/parking (Blue Lot) is less than 10 minutes. While there are several hotels on the airport property itself, you can save significant dollars if you go off -property,...

Staff were very accommodating, forcing us a 2pm checkout since we came in so late. I loved that the room was so spacious, very clean, and we had a great sleep. I would stay here again if we were ever in the area.

It's not often that I get to stay at a candlewood, but every time I do, it's fantastic. This one stood out for me above the others because of the friendliness of the employees. Almost everyone here smiles and speaks when they see us. I love that the morning crew always sends us off with "have a great day at...

The employees always had a smile on their face and very helpful. The room was big and very comfortable. I would stay here again. Convenient to the highway. Very close to Meps for families going to see their recruits off to basic training. Very affordable.

This is an older property but it's comfortable and welcoming to wayward travelers such as myself. After spending twelve hours on the road and arriving later in the evening, I was quite relieved to settle in for the night. The front desk clerk, Trista, was friendly, personable and had a warm, inviting smile. She was exceptionally nice and had a...

We had a reservation for here on a Saturday night, held by a credit card. When we checked in, we were told that our room was not available. Didn't understand how that was possible, but the only answer we received was that they were overbooked. They offered another room that did not have what we needed, but we took them...

This is a typical Candlewood Suites, which means there is no pool or breakfast, but you benefit from a small kitchen in every room. My stay here was just one night after arriving at CMH. I was not recognized as a Spire Elite and was not provided a room upgrade. The lobby was small and crowded. The hotel wifi was...
