Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TRAVEL HAPPY LADY Great location and very comfortable.
The location is great to the T or to Boston. The bed was comfy as was the kitchen and the bathroom. The hotel is close to a mall so I went shopping at Target for breakfast foods. There is a Legal Seafood close by with great food. There are some other good restaurants in the area. The facilities are clean and very quiet area. You cannot beat the price on this hotel for easy access to Boston. I stayed here with my daughter to visit prospective colleges so we needed to stay for a couple of days; can't beat the price. I made breakfast in the kitchen in the AM and ate out during the day; we reheated any leftovers in the kitchen for dinner. I would definitely stay here again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by StefChuckIzzyLIv Unfortunately, we won't be returning to this property!
Our family stayed at the Candlewood Suites because of the price and proximity to downtown Boston. The location is ok, if you are not planning on spending much time there. The hotel is located in an industrial park and is very isolated; I wouldn't stay here if I wasn't with my husband.
The hotel staff is amazing, especially Angie! She went out of her way to make sure we got into our room early! Candlewood is very lucky to have her on staff, she makes you feel very welcomed!
The room on the other hand was very tired and not in great working condition. Our shower drain was clogged and filled with dirty water while showering. The air conditioner was not working properly and was very noisy. The carpets were dirty and the furniture was torn.
We are pretty low maintenance when we travel, but we do like a clean well functioning room.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Marie710 Never again
There wasn't daily cleaning for the rooms. That means the bathrooms as well. I never knew when my room would get maid service and when it wouldn't. Garbage piled up. The bathroom didn't even have any cleaning supplies. It was just a mess.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 nice hotel
the room is big, and the kitchen is well equipped. there is no cleaning of the room while your stay.
the hotel id far from Boston, and far from train station to Boston. if you have a car there is no parking near the train station so you have to take a taxi or a bus to the train, and then ride the train for 30 minutes.

food items ive ever seen. In 6 different
Properties. A/C out in hallway which made
Mine run all the time so i could never close
Curtains. Glad this was not my first impression!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Traveller_for_fun Room was great, however...
The locked door between two adjacent doors was not isolated for noise or smell. I could hear my neighbor easily also, know what was cooking the other room.
Also the hotel doesn't offer a complimentary shuttle service to subway stop. You need to call a cab if you don't rent a car.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by AndreJT Candlewood Suites
The hotel staff is extremely friendly and professional. However, the hotel charged my card immediately after booking; despite documenting online that my card wouldn't be charged until the night before. The carpet in the hallway and elevator had a mildew smell and the a/c unit went out in the hallway.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TravelsaLotEverywhere Location close to Braintree, good value
This is a good sleep-cheaper close to Braintree and has amenities that would help those staying longer (Kitchen, laundry facilities, etc). If you have a car this location works very well but if you are coming in on the T you will need to get a $10 cab ride because there is no courtesy van. Be sure to get off at the red line Quincy Center or Braintree stations NOT Quincy Adams (cabs are not readily available there).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Oil Patch Mama A Reliable Workhorse.
Candlewood Suites is not a luxury hotel; it is a workhorse - a clean, friendly, reliably consistent home away from home for the weary road warrior. Candlewood in Braintree is a very busy place. There is no real lobby or business center. (a computer). The rooms are just fine - clean, with lots of desk room for a computer, printer and scanner, and a very workable kitchen - fridge, microwave, 2 burner stove,,, Biggest complaint? The chairs are really uncomfortable! But on net, good value, good location, and cheerful, helpful staff.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by gstjio Worst night
I booked this hotel because it's close to Boston, it's affordable and it's a suite that could accommodate a family of 4 with 2 kids.
When we checked in, the receptionist repeatedly told us that the suites didn't have many amenities as it was designed to accommodate people who stayed there longer times. The rooms have kitchens and people can cook their own meals. This was fine with us. We're only staying one night. We wouldn't be using the kitchen as much. But I thought it was strange that the receptionist kept emphasizing what they didn't provide.
When we entered our room, we were overwhelmed with chemical smell, as if the room was cleaned to mask other smell??
After a few minutes of being in the room, we all felt a little too hot. There was one thermostat and there was a sign that said something like this: "This is a self adjusting green thermostat. It detects when there's occupant in the room and turn on air conditioning automatically. Please give 15 minutes for the unit to work." Except it took more than 30 minutes. When it came on, it was not cool enough. But there was no way for us to adjust the temperature!
What made our stay bad was the fact that the walls were paper thin. That night, our neighbors were partying late. There were thumping, wall banging until 1 or 2 am.
It was one of the worst hotel I've ever stayed in. In fact, I had booked this same hotel for another night before we leave the area. I cancelled it and booked a different place. I do not ever want to go back here.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sputve Great price for a suite...
If you don't mind that the lobby area is very small...and if you don't mind getting maid service once a week (on the weekend), for the price, this was a very nice deal! We got a full kitchen, nice clean room, bathroom , even a closet! Not in a great area to catch a meal or anything, but if you've got a full kitchen, you can buy your own food and cook your own meals!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by bd0986 Comfortable environment
I have stayed at this property a couple of times in the past month. I felt very comfortable there and would recommend this to anyone staying outside of Boston as the price is very reasonable.
My only complaint is that the bathrooms didn't have a basket. One basket in the room in the kitchen area was a good size, but not convenient.

2nd stay here, Hall carpet replacement is done, as long as Candlewood prices reflect the lower service levels, and we continue to have clean well maintained rooms, we will consider staying here. The hotel staff has always been friendly and efficient.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Once again, another great stay
Candlewood Suites never disappoints. This hotel was a pleasure to stay at. The moment we walked in we were greeted with a smiling face and courteous service. Check in was quick and easy as was the check out. Everything we saw was clean and sparkling. The only thing we would have preferred different was a king size bed. Other than that, our stay was perfect.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jbfromkansas One week in Braintree
The Candlewood Suites in Braintree was an excellent home base for my wife and I on a recent trip to Boston. I had a conference at the Boston Convention Center and my wife came on leisure. It was far enough away from major traffic to be quiet but had easy access to I 90 and I 93. It was close to a large mall, movie theater, and nice restaurants. It was also close to the Braintree station with access to the Boston T subway system. We felt safe. The room was clean. The furniture was a little worn. The onsite laundry was clean and convenient. There was plenty of exercise equipment and we enjoyed grilling out on the covered patio. The staff was friendly and accommodating. It is not a luxurious but it is deffinitely adequate. We would stay here again if in the area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Llyynn GREAT VALUE FOR THE REGION
I travel for business regularly and stay in lots of hotels. This was a vacation stay with my family. I have rarely found front desk people more helpful than Jared and his staff. They were great to work with and anything we asked was taken care of right away. The rooms were clean and comfortable and everything worked fine. It was close to the subway which we used daily and is a great deal at $18 for a week of unlimited use. Their WI-FI ran my laptop just fine for all my business needs also. Before we left on vacation I was nervous about all the negative reviews I saw posted but everything was fine. I would definitely stay again if we came back. Great value! Thanks Jared.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by work stay Review
When first checking in to the hotel the lady at the front desk was very nice. I went up the elevator to my second floor room inwhich I could not get the door open. After several attemps I had to lug my luggage back to the check in desk and ask for help. Mind you, I'm 7 mths pregnant! Come to find out, you had to push the down handle "up" and not "down". If you ask me, that is not right in any means and needs to be fixed ASAP! I used the exercise room or lack there of during my stay. There was only 2 treadmills and only I worked, well kind of. There was a rip in the belt and the incline didn't work. I tried to use the elliptical machine and the footing was all broken. It would have been nice to have some free weights since everything else was a bust. One thing that drew me to the hotel was that it had a workout room, which was a joke. Also every other hotel in the area offers a contential breakfast, your hotel did not.
