Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lilraindrop Great hotel!
Good location located near restaurants, gas stations, and entertainment center. Love the kitchenette. Fully equip with a variety of kitchen silverware, pots, pans, dish washing soap -both handwashing dishes and for the dishwasher, pitcher that could be uses for oj etc. If our travels take us back to Ft. Stockton we will stay here again. Perfect for short term and long term stays. You won't be disappointed.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Heard57 Place to stay on hi way that earns points
Hotel was clean and nice. Dee at front desk was very young did not recognize IGH gold membership at all even after telling her . just look at me and yea ok turn her attention to a young man waiting that they were talking when came in . I stay in IGH hotels for personal and work when can all over the world and really first time was treated as it did not matter if was a member or not.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Bet234 Fire alarm wasn't good
The room was comfortable and the bed was great. I wish they had told us that housekeeping doesn't come but once a week. I didn't like having to take a laundry basket to the front desk with dirty towels in it to get clean ones. The fire alarm going off at 230 in the morning was a definite eye opener. Overall it was good. They have a DVD lending library which was great as I was on a school trip with high school students. You should include hot chocolate for those of us that don't drink coffee or hot tea.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Hornsfan To nice of a hotel to have SUB-PAR amenities
Recently stayed at Candlewood Suites in Fort Stockton Tx while in town on business. Exterior of this hotel looked fabulous. Once in my room, my perspective changed quickly. First of all, I enjoy being able to set the temp of MY ROOM however I choose. The thermostat does not allow you to adjust your room temp. It's preset. Needless to say , my room was stuffy and seemed as if A/C (when it did come on) was blowing very moist air. Which caused bedding and everything else to feel damp. Second issue, the TV is a joke !! Why have the flat screen HD TVs WITH NO HD CABLE SERVICE ???? The screen was so blurry it was hard to read words on the screen. The local NBC channel would phase out every couple of minutes and become nothing but static. Very aggravating while trying to unwind and watch TV to relax in the evening. The mini-recliners in the room will NOT unfold most of the time while trying to extend the footrest.
Front desk attendants told me there was nothing that could be done about the inadequate air conditioning and very very poor quality TV service. Therefore , I will never stay in this hotel or recommend it to anyone in the future. I have been a loyal IHG Hotel patron for the past 7 years and have come to expect better from IHG than what Candlewood Suites in Fort Stockton displays !

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Gwen56 Not worth rates charged
Positive: Room was clean & bed was very comfortable
Negative: Upon check in, no info was given about pantry or other information regarding room, movies, etc. This was discovered at a later date while waiting for another guest to check in. Too many items in room do not work & after three trips to front dest from third floor, had to get another room. Keys (three different sets) did not work. Phone by bed did not work.....light switch on right side of bed sticks....electrical outlet in bathroom did not work-plugged in curling iron, switch tripped & was unable to to push in. Was unable to turn off fan in a second room that I booked for my family. Fan ran for two & a half days, turn thermostat off & fan still ran.
This hotel is definitely not worth the rate we were charged & staff seems indifferent.

For a small town they should be very proud of their hotel. They do a great job with service and cleanliness . Would recommend this property to all.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Falk This hotel is not for tourists
We had a reservation for a king studio suite, but at the counter we were informed that no king room was available because a guest had extended! The staff was quite rude in her response and not helpful. It was like: take it or forget it. They had the attitude "we don't need you". So we decided to go with the double queen. When we got in the room we immediately noticed that someone had smoked in it before (looking at the other review from Jenny on 10/1/2012, it makes sense because hotel was previously for smokers). We went back to the front desk and asked for an another room which they had luckily available.
Although, we understand that this hotel is designed for extended stay, but it is actually "lived" by the construction people from the energy company for the new perm shell.
We would not stay there again.
PS: There is no breakfast served.
