My wife and I chose Ft Stockton as a stop on a recent road trip. Candlewood was a somewhat blind choice as we had never stayed there before, but we figured that even if it wasn't stellar, it was only
for one night. But wow! We could have stayed a week at this place! Fort Stockton isn't the loveliest town to drive into, so we were a little apprehensive upon arriving. But the lobby was clean, warm, and smelled nice. We checked in late on Saturday, 11/21 and girl at the front desk (sorry we don't remember your name!) was SO NICE. She informed us that the hotel loans games and movies for free and on the honor system, and of the other policies and etc. On to our room, which was spacious, clean, and comfy. There was even a bag of popcorn left for us!
The next morning we left early and yet another super nice girl at the front desk helped us check out... Again, I feel bad we are terrible at names. There was free coffee and tea, and an assortment of breakfast food to be charged to the room if you wanted, again totally on the honor system.
It was like staying as a guest in someone's home rather than a hotel. We are planning on making this road trip every year, and you can bet that Candlewood will be the first place we book on our drive. Thank you so much! [Less]
