Just stop for one night while on the road. Room was clean other than a strange smell, reason for the 4 rating. Staff was pleasant and attentive. Good location of interstate. Lots of restaurants and shopping near.

The hotel was clean, with easy access. Mostly a no frills overnight stay on a long road trip. Staff were polite and helpful. Rooms were clean, decent size and adequate for our needs. We had no problems checking in or out. T

Was there over a busy weekend with a wedding. Staff was very helpful. Rooms were huge and very clean. Free movies and popcorn and big kitchens were great for kids. The little store in hotel was good but did not have pet food, for a pet friendly hotel that was strange. Near stores and restaurants. Overall a great stay.

This is an excellently kept hotel, friendly staff, very good facilities. The room is comfortable and clean. But in this day, tub showers are out of date and, although I don't need "handicap accessible" but in our 60's we are more comfortable with a walk-in shower. This is only reason I give it a 4 instead of 5. Also it's... More

I can't remember if I have ever stayed in a Candlewood Suites before, but after this stay I will be whenever I get the chance. Let's see: the bed was divine; the staff friendly and helpful especially in getting oriented on how things work there; free laundry available; miscellaneous food and stuff area available (for purchase); gym; and the room...

This is our first suites stay since having kids and we felt spoiled with the extra space! Our suite was clean and tidy. We loved that we had a room separate from our son so we didnt have to be still and quiet while he drifted to sleep. We loved the little snack room and the games you could borrow.... More

The staff was wonderful, check in and check out very quick. Stayed on the third floor in a suite. Queen bedroom and Double bed in the main room instead of sofa.

Had a big problem with the billing. My insurance was paying for the rooms and they wanted a card on file for extra charges. The next Friday, they had charged my room for over a thousand dollars.
