Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by NKviola A little odd
The layout of this Candlewood is a little different than the other ones that I have stayed at before. I liked my room location, but wasn't a fan that when I went out the side door right by my room there was always a cigarette smell. I wasn't greeted at a member, and really don't have any idea if I received my points. If things hadn't been so chaotic for me I might have remembered to ask before I checked out.
That aside, the room was nice. Like other Candlewoods there are minor details that could be attended to, to really make the hotel stand out. I believe my kitchen was missing a few handles here and there.
Overall it was fine, but it won't be the first hotel to come to mind if I need one in the Braintree area again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Visitor20140806 More than expected, but no status recognition
As this was my first stay at a Candlwood Suites, I didn´t know what to expect, really.
I was pleased with all the amenities, like free coffee and laundry as well as the in-suite kitchen and internet speed.
However I was not greeted as an IGH Rewards Gold Member nor did I receive any extras due to my status.

Staff was always very helpful and friendly.

Great value compared to surrounding hotels. Cost is kept low by not having 'daily' cleaning service. No breakfast included with stay. Does offer coffee and USA Today paper for free.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cspan check in extra charge
I found this first time experience of an additional $100.00 security deposit to be a little off putting. it made me uncomfortable that you can pre-charge $100 for a possibility of theft or damage. You have my address and all contact information so I find this disturbing. I've stayed at this same hotel in the past and have not had this happen before.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JudyBOSTONGIRL Great home away fromhome
What a great stay we had. From the moment we walk in, the staff was friendly, informative and very professional. My husband was on business and I was visiting family. It worked out beautifully for both of us. Our room was clean and the bed very comfortable. It was close to restaurants and even Wollaston Beach was a short drive.
We decided to stay an extra night and the staff was great about allowing us to stay with out changing rooms. Thank You!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Spainboynorth A very pleasant stay
The hotel location is great for a visit to Boston. Just south of the city it sits on a quiet road. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. The suites are in very good, almost new, condition. You simply can't beat the value.

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.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by stnicholson Disapointed
Dirty carpet in hallway and around bed.
Tv remote didnt work. Alarm clock
was gross and didnt work and was
unplugged when i arrived. Dried old food
Pieces on nightstand. Cant close curtains
Or then the ac shuts off way too soon.
Channel guide out of date and innaccurate.
Noone at front desk to check me out . I
waited fifteen minuites. Sign promised
less than ten. Most limited selection of
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.
