Reviewed 20 April 2017

It's a newer hotel and the room was well-designed and in immaculate condition. We couldn't find a single negative and really enjoyed our stay. The front desk personnel were great. The hotel isn't far from the highway, so there was easy access to get into Portage and return.

I have stayed in nearly every hotel at this exit over the last 10-15 years. This was one of the best. It's new and clean. Beds are comfortable, although I am not sure if they have queen rooms--we had a double-double. Room was quiet and I slept very well. Be aware this is really set up as an extended stay...

The Candlewood Suites is located on the east side of Kalamazoo. It is near the fairgrounds, and has an amazing amount of grass is have a dog with you.

Roomy suites but dated and quite dusty. The air conditioner was blowing in the living room area but not in the bedroom and it made for a very uncomfortable night. The bed was quite hard and the beddings spotted.

It's amazing how many hotels either don't clean the AC filters or don't do it often enough. This was one of the worst as it shows a lack of everyday preventative maintenance. If you have allergies or leave a hotel with breathing difficulties this might be the reason. The room itself was very clean so it's not the cleaning personnel...

Dear Jim R. Thank you for bringing this to our attention.

I hope this does not discourage you from staying with us or our IHG properties in the future, we strive to improve...

I stayed here about 15 nights between June and September. None of the people at the desk are very friendly and three times they did not do what they were supposed to do so I would get my IHG points. The rooms are nice and the beds are very comfortable. They offer complimentary tea and coffee and fruit. Several times...

This was our third time at the Candlewood Suites in Kalamazoo for a three day weekend. Reservations fill up quickly for the car show, so we book early. The motel had a block of rooms at a discounted rate for the event which we appreciate. The motel is set up with perks for the car event; car wash station in...

We stayed here for two nights while visiting family. The facility was quiet, no hallway noise at all. The bed was average, nothing great. Room was spacious, bathroom was functional. The cost was a little above what I would have liked to pay, but it was a holiday weekend. The pantry was OK, but expensive. We did not use the...

Dear penquin2k I have discussed your stay with the staff, it is unfortunate that we did not provide you the service that is expected from out hotel. Debit cards and banking can add to the headaches, however I am happy we were able to balance everything out in the end. I hope the dog show went well.
