Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Doggygirl Nice place
It was a basic place to stay. I was a little concerned about one double bed in the room. I have never thought a hotel would offer a double bed but actually it was all that would fit. (Small room). There was a recliner in the room that needed to be replaced.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by viv08 Don't stay if you have any allergies
I don't have a problem with a hotel allowing pets my sister-in-law and brother--in-law brought their dog but usually you have certain rooms that they rent for pets and the others are pet free, this place does not do that any room can have a pet, I have allergies and for 4 days suffered with sneezing and eyes watering and itching when you walked in our room you could smell white vinegar so I believe a pet was in there stained the carpet and they used vinegar to clean it, I had to go to cvs and buy different products to help me sleep and breath better room was decent size and liked the kitchen but would not recommend to anybody that has allergies or have children that are allergic because any room you stay in could have pet dander or stains, the staff was very friendly liked them a lot just not happy with the fact that all rooms could be for pets, so for that reason would never stay there again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ron14 Really nice hotel
My family and I were very pleased with the cleanliness of the rooms and hotel property. I did not have much contact with the hotel staff but what little contact I did have, they were very pleasant and helpful. Although a bit pricey, I would most definitely make this my hotel of choice when ever in the Destin area.

It's your standard hotel room...like that they allow dogs...wish it were that price AND on the beach lol...pool super small...overall everything was fine...oh and room service not on a daily base...but having a kitchen was helpful for leftovers

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by CaF22 Good non-beach location
We stayed August 07-11. The room was clean and had plenty of space for the 2 of us. The beds were comfortable. There is only 1 elevator and the wait was a little long at times. We didn't use any of the hotel's amenities-laundry, pool, business center, etc., so I won't comment on those. We were on the 2nd floor and our room was facing the main road. The road noise was not a problem. Unfortunately, the occupants in the room above us created CONSTANT and LOUD noise every morning and evening that sounded like a herd of cows was running through the place. Ear plugs and a pillow over my head did no good! Twice I asked the management to speak with the guests; they said they did. It didn't help. Some people have no regard for anyone but themselves. The hotel is a short drive from food, groceries, entertainment, shopping, and the beach. I will stay at this hotel again, but only if I have a top floor room.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jules6977 Incredible! Would recommend to everyone!!
Everything was incredible from the first email to Jamie. She is exceptional!! She was quick to respond to my emails and extremely helpful in finding the room that suited our needs. The night desk clerk was great as well as we arrived much later than expected.
The Candlewood cupboard is fantastic, the room was very clean and spacious and the bed was very comfortable!!! I have not one bad thing to say about Candlewood. I will stay again and again!!!
Thank you Candlewood!!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MOMom We Love Destin
This was our 4th trip to the Candlewood Suites in SanDestin. We like to come every year. The staff and service are awesome. Our room has everything needed for a young family. The nearby beaches have crystal clear blue water and white sand. On the way back from the beach, we pick up fresh seafood at the local market and take advantage of the outdoor grill and pool. There is great shopping and many good restaurants nearby. Hope your enjoy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mummszee A great place to stay
I was very impress by your staff the minute I walked into the hotel lobby. The front desk employee was on the phone asking another guest if their room was okay. The check-in was very smooth and fast. After we arrived in our room, that front desk employee called our room to see if everything was ok. The beds were clean and comfortable, the kitchenette was great, just the right size, the space in the room and bathroom was perfect. As we toured your hotel I was impressed by the fact that you offered the cupboard, a fitness facility, free washer and dryers, and that my pet was welcomed and had her own area to do her business. I was also impressed by your housekeeping staff, the rooms were cleaned and smelled so fresh every time we entered them. I was also impressed at how clean the public areas were, and that they were even cleaning the handrails in the stairwells. Awesome staff, facility and enjoyed our time there. The prices was more than we usually pay but I know it was at the peak season. I would recommend your facility to anyone that would be visiting the area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Anni80 Family Vacation
We decided a last minute mini vacation with the family and almost everything was booked in Destin or way over priced. Due to the good reviews, we ended up picking this hotel and we are very pleased with our experience. The hotel is not on the water but it is near the beach and everything else. It was very clean, which is on of my main concerns, having small children. We were very pleased with the hotel. We did think the nightly rate was a little high for the type of hotel, but it could be because of the high season, because everything else was either booked or also had high rates. We will consider this hotel again next time we go to Destin.

The suite was awesome. It was clean and spacious. Everything you need when you are away from home. The location is excellent. Outlet mall and Walmart close to the hotel. Beach within 2 minute drive. The surroundings were quite and peaceful. Also, there was a WinnDixie grocery store and CVS/Walgreens within a 2 block range. We had a wondeful experience. Can't wait to visit again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by VikingYachts Lack of paying attention to details
I recently booked a room for one of our employees with the company credit card. To make sure the employee would not have a problem checking in I called the customer service number and they instructed me to call the hotel and request a credit card authorization form. After filling out the form I tried faxing it back but the fax would not go through. I called back and spoke with a lady named Jamie who gave me the hotels e-mail address so I could scan and e-mail over the signed credit card authorization form. After sending the e-mail (twice) I called back to make sure Jamie received it. After she confirmed and printed the forms she told me I should be all set with the employee to check in. Upon arrival the employee was asked to provide a credit card. He was told the card would only be held and not be charged. I’m not sure why you would ask to hold a card after one was already provided with authorization. Four days after the employee checked in he called me and said the hotel had been charging the rates to his card resulting in overages on his account. After many phone calls with the hotel the matter was finally worked out. I just find it aggravating that after I took the time to fill out the credit card form, return it, and double check to make sure everything was all set and we still had an issue. Its frustrating to go through all that for your policies and it still gets overlooked.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by VM803 Not a good experience
Upon arrival I was informed that they do not provide daily housekeeping and that to have fresh towels you need to bring the towels in a basket to the front desk and they switch them out.
The room upon arrival was not clean - there was a sticky substance on the kitchen floor and carpet. We had to wear shoes the entire time. The furnishings included an old recliner chair and there was a small desk/table that had two mis matched chairs. The room was not at all what was expected for a "suite".
The first night there the power went out from 9pm to 6 am. We were told due to a storm, although EVERY business around the hotel had power. This was the ONLY establishment without power. We did not even get an apology!!!
This is not at all what I expected for the money and would not recommend this place to anyone.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jennmariesal Great, pet friendly location
I loved this hotel. Check in was so easy for me and my puppy and they immediately gave notice that I was a priority club member and gave me a complimentary gift. The specific dog walking area was a great addition. The room was spectacular and very clean. The bed was very comfortable. I loved the little kitchen and the refrigerator really came in handy. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. This is definitely where we are going to stay every time we visit Destin!!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Kassie75 Great service at a good price
The front desk clerk Charles did an amazing job! He was there when I checked in and again when I left - definitely made me feel welcome.
The room was nice - a couple minor issues - but they were brought to the attention of Charles and I feel quite certain they were addressed.
I was down for my sisters wedding and having this nice hotel to stay at took one thing off my mind - I would most definitely recommend this hotel to other travelers and, if in Destin again, I'll gladly stay again myself.

Only 15 minutes to Morgan Field Park. Excellent room, nice and clean, loved the use of the full kitchen. We grilled steaks on the grill and relaxed by the pool. Will definitely recommend to our team for next tournament. Lots of restaraunt choices all around and plenty of shopping nearby.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by sre001 Great people - Good value
My first experience with an "extended stay" type of hotel. I was a little put-off at first regarding the limited, daily room services; however, ample towels, glasses, etc. were provided, and the staff was accomodating with any requests.
Kitchenette's were well equipped with any/all necessary utensils & cookware, full-size fridge, dishwasher, etc.
Really, a perfect set-up for extended stay

This seems to be a well maintained facility. Room was clean. Bed was comfortable. Would have been nice to have one more chair so two people could sit around the table rather than just the one but it worked out just fine. We would recommend this facility to others!

I have been staying at Candlewood Suites off and on since November 2012 on business. Being away from my family for this period has been challenging. From the first day I checked in to Candlewood, Destin until today the staff has always been very professional and helpful with my needs. I work in the sales field and know how important customer service is for repeat business. I recommend Candlewood Suites, Destin and give them an excellant across the board!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Volker Great Hotel for people with & without dogs
The rooms had been amazing. Very clean and very up to date! I had some difficulties with my reservation but the friendly staff at the rezeption was helping instandly.
The only problem was that on our last day nobody remembered those arrangements and so I had to pay a lot more for the rooms. My recomendation would be to make everything in writing only.
Without that problem my rating would be Overall Excellent!
