Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dad11111111111111 Candlewood Elmira
As a new hotel in the last several years the stay was great and the front desk attendant even better. She provided excellent service when inquiring about local eateries for a large group. We were very pleased with our stay!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Anne B Great customer service!
I am a bit of a road warrior and I must say this hotel provided the best customer service I've experienced. My flight was delayed, so I called to let the hotel know that I was going to be late. When I arrived at 4:00 am, the front desk agent was expecting me and quickly checked me in. When I asked for a recommendation for a taxi for the following day, the agent arranged the taxi for me. A few days later when I asked if there was a shuttle to the airport, the manager drove me herself. Wow! I'll be staying there again on my next visit to Horseheads. Also, the bed was comfortable and the cupboard was very convenient, with a nice selection of personal items and breakfast items.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by emsweck Candlewood March 3- helpful front desk
I checked in very late (1:15AM). Night attendant was pleasant and efficient.. She provided me with a nice bag of refreshments, and cookies were at the counter as well. I did not have time to do much more than go to bed, but room was comfortable and large. Wake up call timed as requested, and checkout was a breeze. Convenient to airport, shop[s, and restaurants (Outback within walking distance). Overall, very pleased with the value and service.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Debs and Donna Beautiful spacious rooms
My sister and I enjoyed our stay at this hotel. We joined family to watch our niece Katie play hockey for Elmira College's "Soaring Eagles" at the Domes. They won their games, "Go Elmira". My family and I had a wonderful experience in beautiful Horseheads. It's a lovely drive from Toronto, along the lake, with the rolling hills. And to top it off, we enjoyed our stay at Candlewood. We loved the beautiful clean rooms, comfortable beds, full-size kitchen and new carpet. Also, the bathroom towels were soft and fluffy. We liked that the location is close to restaurants and shops since we didn't know the area. We appreciated the friendly staff who were very helpful.
We will definitely stay at Candlewood Suites again, the next time we visit your area.

We were very appreciative to stay a hotel that welcomed pets. The room and hotel was new, clean, and room was very comfortable. Price was very reasonable. We have absolutely no complaints about this hotel.
We will definitely return.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by nlds Friendly Staff, great location
When booking my room w/Brandy @ the front desk she made sure that I received the room type requested as I was traveling with my pets. She was very polite and knew what she was doing. I have stayed at the property in the past and in comparison my bathroom and kitchen are could have been a bit cleaner. Pillows are very comfortable however the mattresses are very uncomfortable. Overall my stay was good and I will stay here again when in the area.

We just stayed at this location on Sunday 2/16/14. Room was large with kitchen area, recliner, two queen size beds, clean. Friendly desk staff.
Outback Steak House directly next door, which worked great for us after a long day.
Negatives, the family next to us in room 330 the husband and wife decided they were going to argue at 1-2am in the morning, young child started crying... Walls in hotel are paper thin so that kept my wife and I awake for a couple of hours.
Pillows are like marshmallows.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Maryjr Great pet friendly hotel
The staff at this hotel are exceptionally friendly,polite and professional. As a new pet owner I was apprehensive about bringing our dog to a hotel but staff made us feel welcome and answered my questions promptly. We visited on thanksgiving and when I was in the lobby at 3AM to meet my daughter for black friday shopping I found the attendant at the front desk to be cheerful and wide awake ! The rooms are spacious and clean !! Great stay

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bea11111 Some things could improve
Stayed one night and loved the space and full kitchen and desk area. plenty of room for my son to play. Bathroom was clean, plenty of linens. the popcorn for microwave was a nice touch.
cons: dishes were put away dirty: spoons, cups, bowls, pan on stove all were dirty in spots and more attention to the detail of making sure they are clean for the next guest would have been nice. We left the room survey for the manager, but to date no one has called to talk about it. Also, the room had flies. There were at least a dozen live flies flying around and mostly they stayed on the windows, but yuk! We had paid for the 'suite' experience and had to kill flies..now if we had rented a cabin I would have expected it. And still, no call from the property manager.
The 'cupboard' did not have regular milk for cereal we had purchased although they had chocolate milk.......
Overall it could have been alot worse, the bed was very comfortable with plenty of pillows to choose from and the pull out was actually not bad, the springs didn't poke through, so that was a PLUS if you had need for an adult to sleep on the pullout.

Besides being clean and having very good amenities, your staff is outstanding. Everyone is very friendly, greeting me by my first name upon check-in, and always very accommodating to my needs. Thanks!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by bwheck52 Staff works extra hard for you
I always like this place. I asked the front desk for a replacement frying pan for the kitchen as mine wasn't non stick and was giving me trouble. I was taken care of in less than 5 minutes! That was really great service when you consider it was 9 o'clock at night.. They always do extra for you here.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Christopher1948 Thanks for being pet-friendly
When traveling with a dog it can be difficult to find nice places to stay. Candlewood Suite Elmira/Horseheads was a great stop on our trip to the east coast. The rooms are large and quite comfortable. The kitchen well supplied with nice appliances, dishes, and silver. The location was great -- close to the highway, but on a large property that was quiet, secure, and with plenty of room to walk the dog. Staff were pleasant and helpful with our questions about local restaurants and stores. I love having a nice exercise room located right next to the laundry, so you can work out while washing your clothes.
My only complaint is the hefty sure-charge for pets. It makes some sense for guests who are staying for an extended period of time with pets (I suspect this is the target audience of the hotel). The room might have to be cleaned. But it is very high for a one night stay. I have no problem with a returnable deposit in case of damage, but the large, extra fee for a one night stay does not seem reasonable.
Other than that, a very good experience.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by pdnathaniel19620909090999 Gave our confirmed 2 bed room away and I had to sleep with my son.
I booked 2 queen beds. Aug 22-25. I later changed it to 1 night. I received a confirmation for 2 queen beds. We arrived late & I was told there was only one bed. hotel booked no cots. I called IHG because I am a platinum member June put me on hold for 45 minutes. I called back and Mark told me the manager code at the hotel changed the reservation. supervisor Kelly S spoke with me and offered the room free. case number 38518850 IGH said it was a hotel manager issue and that the hotel manager was the person who switched it to one bed. I had no choice but to take the room & sleep with my 18 year old son. Points were deducted from my account. I called several times to speak with the manager Andrea Stowe. who is never there or will return a call and never has.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Samthebull Bad Experience
When you pay standard hotel rates you expect your room to be cleaned on a daily basis but this was not this case at candlewood suites. Another problem experienced during our stay was the hotel allowed dogs. We don't have anything against dogs but this particular dog was allowed to bark the entire night. Even after repeated calls to the front desk, the response was "we allow pets at our properties". The staff was terrible and inattentive to our concerns. Poorly trained staff, who didn't care about the concerns of its guests.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by wlc3116 Served It's Purpose
I have no complaints, the room was fine. It was a large room with a kitchenette, king size bed and had a large bath. It was clean & comfortable, however I wish it had a softer pillow. The air conditioner was a little confusing as it said to operate it from the wall thermostat, however that didn't work so well so we did it from the unit itself and it needs an accurate TV channel locator page.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BimmerDob Great Location for WGI track visit
Great quite location just off I-86. Stayed 5 nights while attending a driving event at WGI. 30-min drive to WGI north gate.
Lot's of eating out choices near by and a kitchenette for eating in. Walmart Superstore nearby for stocking up on food and such.
Would stay again if coming back to WGI or the area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rose21461 Nice stay for the money
Stayed for two nights with my family. We loved the kitchen area, which came in very handy. I didn't mind not having the usual continental breakfast, but I did miss a pool. The workout area was more than adequate. My only disappointment was there was no soap provided. I don't think I've ever stayed at a motel, large chain or small privately owned motel that didn't provide soap (or shampoo). There was none for sale in their "Candlewood Cupboard" either. Just thought that was a little odd. Fortunately, there are enough stores close by (as I didn't pack any soap thinking I wouldn't need to).
Overall, I would certainly recommend this place. Just bring your own soap. ;)

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by skay66 Wish I could have stayed longer!
Very nice establishment - good location for eating/shopping/touring.
Very well appointed rooms - BUT - a minor thing - the pillows were very uncomfortable! TOO hard. I would have liked a choice if possible, and if I were spending more time there (we only stayed one night), I would have had to do something, even if it meant buying a pillow. Otherwise, I would definitely recommend Candlewood Suites at Elmira, NY.

I would recommend this property. The staff was able to find two feather pillows and delivered them to our room within minutes of our inquiry.
The property was clean and orderly. We found the staff to be friendly and helpful. Our stay in Elmira/Horseheads was very pleasant.
