We stayed at this Candlewood Suites for 5 nights earlier this month. It was our second stay this year (previously the entire month of February, 2015). Everything was great. The room was spotless, quiet, and comfortable. The front desk staff was once again pleasant and helpful. This is our "go to" place to stay when in the area!
