Back in Louisiana again! A quick stay over found the room nice, clean and comfortable. Some new faces at the front desk but they were very pleasant. The little store they have on site was nicely stocked with some of my favorite ice cream. Very welcoming!

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!
