Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Bruceb48 Lousy staff
Hotel was clean, price was reasonable, staff was surly and the house-keeping staff non-existent. When we checked in we were not informed that as an extended stay hotel our room would not be serviced by house-keeping (although I have stayed at other extended stay hotel that do service the rooms daily). We were not told where or how to dispose of our trash. Additionally, there was no breakfast of any kind provided (a list of area restaurants would have been nice - if there was one the staff did not mentioned it). The bill was not put under the door the night before check out, The most I would give this hotel it a fair. I travel to Hattiesburg frequently and will stay elsewhere next time.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by grace4all Nice facilities but unfortunately...
Nice facilities but unfortunately seems to be home away from home for a rough class of working men - or maybe men looking for work. My daughter had reservations to stay there for an extended time.
She checked in and that night received a call on her room phone from a man (also a guest) who had watched her check in and figured out her room phone number. He obscenely asked if she wanted company in her room for the night. This made her very uncomfortable and she did not feel safe. She called the desk, explained what had happened and asked to be moved to another room. They gave her the key to another room and she moved herself. Not a safe atmosphere. She checked out the next day.
When I went there later in the day, men were sitting around outside on the curb of the parking lot in various places, watching the women who came in. One man made an inappropriate remark to me. I cannot recommend this particular Candlewood
Suites. Its in a rough part of Hattiesburg. It is sad because the facilities are very nice and are perfect for an extended stay and it is a great value.

This is a great place to stay. It was quiet and perfectly located for my purposes at USM. It is well lighted so I felt safe. I especially enjoyed the kitchenette and flat screen TV. I plan to stay here on all my trips. Staff is excellent.

I was very happy with my stay at Candlewood suites. The Staff was very friendly, and every staff member I came in contact with had a great attitude. Always helpful, I have been in a lot of hotels in the past but the but at this hotel was on par with the hilton's and hyatt hotels.
Great job and please keep up your exceptional service!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TravelDoc2 Comfort and Versatility
Pleasing, up to date, large enough room not to feel crowded. Useful desk space with plenty of electrical outlets and free internet access. Large enough and well appointed bathroom. Full size refrigerator and real freezer compartment with icemaker plus cooktop, disposal in sink, dishwasher, microwave, dishes, and utensils enable some real food preparation and facilitate longer stay. In-room coffee maker is not very good, poor tasting Maxwellhouse coffee was supplied. A/C could have been a bit stronger - wall thermostat device did not appear to work but there is a display built in to the wall unit. Bed was comfortable, but the pillows were poor foam. A feather pillow can sometimes be had, but not a really soft down type - so may want to bring your own. HD type TV was small, but adequate. Channel selection was OK, including one HBO channel.
Coffee in the little food shop is free and tasted good. Items in the shop are limited and overpriced. There is no complimentary breakfast or dinner, but that is OK because you don't have to pay for it in the room price and you can keep food you like in your room.
There is a decent looking workout facility, but there is no swimming pool at any of the Candlewoods. A nice heated indoor pool and whirlpool would really have been a nice addition. There is a laundry room with washer/dryer.
Parking was pretty much adequate. No obvious security problems. There was no roof over the entrance area to protect from bad weather while loading and unloading.
Overall more satisfactory than many so called full service hotels and good value.
