My wife and I stayed for Friday night and checked out Saturday morning. We brought our two small dogs (bichon, shih tzu, pekingese mix) and were charged about half of the pet fee, which I thought was very reasonable considering they say they may charge up to $75 on their website. Plenty of grass to walk around on outside and the hotel is right across from paved jogging path.
We originally reserved a One bedroom king, but decided to downgrade. There is a BBQ area in the back of the hotel. Unfortunately, people do use it in the evening and there are no restrictions on the times allowed for use. Our room was facing the BBQ area and although there wasn't an out of control party, the sound resonates through the windows and walls so that you can hear everything they are saying outside. I'm sure for many, that this is actually a plus, but for us, it was a downside. Guest services was helpful, and although we had to move rooms at 9 PM when we were trying to get to bed early for an early AM function, they were able to get us into a room facing the opposite side of the building. We were only charged for the room size we were downgraded to because they did not have any available one bedroom kings facing the front of the building. I appreciated their understanding response to my complaint.
The room, dining, and kitchen areas were spectacular and a great value. The gym is nothing special, but at least it has the basics. The lobby and hallways smelled great, they used air fresheners extensively. If we need to head to Jackson again, we'll definitely stay there. It's also conveniently located nearby the airport and highway.

Our crew rolled into town for a weekend baseball tournament. We had never heard of Flowood Mississippi or Candlewood Suites prior to planning our trip. We were surprised all the way around when leaving and will stay there again if the opportunity for us, our kids, happens again. Staff was wonderful. Room met our needs. Location for were we needed to go, ball fields, Dick's Sporting Goods, restaurants, gas stations, etc... were all right there. There is not a pool, which would have been nice. But we did not have time for it.
We hope to make it back!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Justeen comfortable bed,great room service however the front desk wasn't.
My experience was very disappointing this trip. My reservations wasn't correct, I was charged in advance for 3 rooms and wasn't warn of this I was told they would put a hold on it. After checking in I gave the desk clerk the other names for the rooms however I found out later that I had already paid. The next day my door was painted and the hallway with no warning or signs posted. I talk with the front desk and the manager but they wouldn't correct the paying issue. I was also told after making the reservations that if in the event that I cancel I would be charged no matter how much advance notice I give.

Excellent rooms and staff - great place to stay. Would like more movie channels however, and cable service that doesn't freeze.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HappyInFlorida Great property!
I stay at this Candlewood at least four or five times a year. It is always very clean and well stocked. In addition, the staff is always so helpful and cheerful. This property is much better than other Candlewoods that I have stayed at.

Everything was great. The rooms are clean, comfortable, and they accommodated my government discount even booking the day before! I love the location (very close to shopping, etc..) and it was simply awesome :)

On a trip for multiple doctor's appointments for my child we stayed at this hotel and it was great! The room was clean, the staff was very friendly, it was quiet and we felt very safe during our stay. We will definitely stay there on any return trips.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by LeapinLizardLinguini Disappointing
I have stayed at this particular Candlewood on numerous occasions. I have always had a pleasant experience until this time. I was very disappointed in the room cleanliness. There was trash in one of the wastebaskets and the bedside table had a Vaseline ring where a container had been set.
I personally cleaned the room to ensure sanitation and sanity. I simply did not want to worry whether everything had been addressed or not. I know that "one bad apple" does not indicate the overall experience. However, coming in tired to a dirty room is simply not something that I want to do again. I will think twice before staying there again. There are too many other reasonable options.
