The price is fantastic for the room quality and amenities. Amenities include full access to the MSU University Club including fitness, pool, childcare, bar/restaurant and more. I loved the well appointed kitchenette with coffee maker, dishes, S/P, microwave, dishwasher, toaster and more. It was so nice to have my own coffee and make a quick breakfast. They also give you...

My daughter had to visit MSU so we stayed here for one night. The room was clean and comfy and the staff was friendly. I requested late check out and was given 2pm so I couldn't be happier. Candlewood was perfect for our visit. If you're not familiar with the area you may want to map quest directions especially if...

Nice property. Set up as an extended stay suite - dishwasher, refrigerator, etc. If you don't put your dishes in the dishwasher they won't be washed. Property is showing it's age some. Fan in bathroom was VERY loud. Restaurant service is provided by the University Club, which is connected. Very reasonable breakfast buffet. Staff was very nice.

We were lucky enough to get a room here. We had called at the last minute and they had 2 rooms left. They were very helpful in giving us directions and when we arrived the staff was friendly and helpful. We were very surprised when we got to our room and it has a full size fridge, stove top burners...

My daughter and I spent one night at the hotel for a college visit for MSU. The property is clean and well maintained. There is nothing sexy or lavish about this place but is solid and clean. If you are planning to visit MSU, this your place to stay for clean and affordable place.

Hi miller2345, Thanks for leaving feedback about your recent experience at the Candlewood Suites East Lansing, MI.

Driving up to the building it was not obvious where it is located the sign is not visible from the road as you would expect. Not going to have much drive up traffic from a highway. Drove past it the first time. The property is clean and well maintained but the fragrance from cleaning is very evident. Was tough for...

We were visiting Michigan State University due to serious cardiology and internal medicine tests being performed on our 10 year old dog. Not only did Candlewood Suites deduct the pet fee, for both our patient and his canine brother, but reduced the price of the room as well. As wonderful as this was, it actually got better. We weren't sure...

The room is great and very convenient to catch a bus on weekdays, as the bus stop is just opposite of the hotel front parking lawn. I enjoy my 12 nights stay there.

I stayed here for a training with MSU. Everything about this hotel was awesome. The staff was very helpful, the room extremely comfortable (I loved the fluffy pillows and the comforter!), and the little kitchen was a nice touch, even though I didn't need to use it. The wifi was easy to connect to and was fast. I didn't use...
