Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by GlennF Good value and service at Glen Allen, VA Candlewood Suites
We stayed at the Candlewood Suites in Glen Allen, VA on September 5, 2013. This is the Candlewood Suites on Telegraph Rd. near I-95; .... not the one near Short Pump Mall. When I made the reservation, I put in the reservation notes that I need a pet-free room because of my allergies. (This was especially important given that both Candlewood Suites and Staybridge Suites are both known to be very pet-friendly hotels.). My pet-free request was honored, and the check in receptionist was especially helpful, specifically remembering my request, and noted that he specially reserved a pet-free room for me. This was excellent service!
Overall, the hotel was not luxurious, but it was clean, comfortable, and a good value. I would stay there again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dodi1027 This Candlewood Suite started it all
This is the Candlewood that started my love affair with the hotel. I stay in Candlewoods if al all possible. The rooms are comfortable without worrying about staff intruding daily. Mike runs a great place and know all his clients name and tries to help in every way. The other staff members try hard also with Mike as role model . Traveling weekly get difficult and Mike makes this Candlewood Suite feel like hom.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HappyinLove The cleanest by far.
We loved the easy access to I-64, I-95, 295, and Powhite Pkwy. This made everything in Richmond convenient. But we were most impressed with the cleanliness of the room and lobby. We love the Candlewood brand most, but this by far has been the nicest experience we've had.

I stay at this property when I have to travel for work. I was impressed the first time I stayed. It was the manager, Mike, that was professional and friendly; He always has a smile and has an outgoing personality which is perfect for the hospitality field. Mike is the reason I now use this hotel location on a regular basis. The hotel grounds are always clean as are the rooms. Any maintenance issues are always addressed in a quick manner. I am a Priority Club member and a minor drawback is when I forget to spin the "wheel" at check-in, I'm rarely reminded by hotel staff to do so. During my last stay, I was a bit embarrassed when I was working with a contractor, as a hug section of the office chair cover had been torn off. As a professional, I choose this hotel due to its high standards for cleanliness and undamamged rooms; So I try to overlook minor occurences that are outside of the norm - remembering that are other people that occupy the rooms I use other than me!

Room was clean and comfortable and staff very attentive. I was impressed the desk attendant knew me by name the next morning before I got to the desk. I didn't realize pets were accepted or I would have booked elsewhere, it's just a personal preference. The odors in the halls from people cooking in their rooms were offensive however the room itself was relatively free of those odors. It really gave me the feel of a rooming house instead of a mid scale hotel at times. I think there are better bangs for the buck around.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WorkAndTravel Customer Service is a big deal.
The staff has been exceeding friendly and patient, even when I have been absent minded. Most hotel staff that I have used in the past wore vacant expressions and did not bother to be very welcoming.
Customer Service is a big deal and trumps amenities and other hotel infractions that a hotel might incur.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mrstpinkston Warm Welcome...
The manager always greets me with a smile and will accomodate my hectic travel schedule by allowing me to check in a bit early if I need to. The hotel is clean and the rooms are very spacious; This includes generous desk space in-room for my business/office needs.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JC77 It was OK
Very typical Candlewood. Not the oldest or newest one I have been in. 5 stories high, and some of the slowest elevators around. Also extremely close to I-95, if you like to have the window open you get serenaded by the traffic to the point where you can't hardly hear the TV.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by tannie Great location
When we arrived it was 2:10pm. Check -in time was 3:00pm. The young man at the service desk could not understand us very well. He looked at me like he didn't have a clue what I was talking about when I told him I had a reservation and gave my name. We filled in the blanks and figured out we couldn't check in until 3:00 pm. We went to the local mall and killed time until we were allowed to check in. When we came back we had a very nice woman that was friendly and helped us with our needs. My husband inquired about any other malls that may be closeby. She and a woman that was staying here told us about the Short Pump Shopping Center. We spent the evening at the mall and had dinner at a great restaurant. Our stay at the hotel was very good,everything was clean and the towels,bedding were great. It even had a kitchenette. We only encountered one issue as we were leaving the room, the fan in the bathroom appeared to have overheated. We reported it to the front desk as we were leaving. Whoops, guess who was back. He didn't have a clue what we said.
