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.

My stay at the Candewood was very comfortable. Rooms were spacious and the staff was very helpful. The room was very clean and also had a full Kitchen with dishes provided. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to the area.

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.

I rented a Queen suite and thought that it was just perfect. The suite was very nice with ample room that you felt very comfortable. The hotel was close to shopping and restaurants. I will definitely stay at this hotel again.

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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CarlB132 Beautiful room.
Our suite was very attractive, up to date and quiet. The kitchen was spacious with a large table for eating and or working. There was a very nice living room with sofa and recliner and flat screen tv. A separate bedroom with a comfortable king size bed and additional flat screen tv was an extra touch of luxury. This room was a great value. A breakfast option would be nice though.

We used the Candlewood Suites Horseheads as a home base to explore the Finger Lakes for a few days. Very comfortable, convenient and a great value. Close to the highway and restaurants. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Recliner, desk and chair offered extra space to work and plan our day trips. I'll look for Candlewood Suites on our next road trip.

Stayed one pleasant night. Property was nicely maintained inside and out; lobby was clean and inviting and staff was friendly. Room was comfortable, appropriately furnished and all appliances in working order. Air conditioner was quiet with plenty of refreshing cool air and the bed was a welcome delight at the end of a long day of traveling. Highly recommend for one night or an extended stay if needed.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by AtlasWonderDog Pet policy was a surprise (not a good one)
Facility, employees, amenities all exceptional. Overall experience would have been excellent except I had chosen the hotel for pet friendly status per findings on pet friendly web sites. Unfortunately the pet web sites listed $10 per night and the actual charge was $65. I understand Candlewood has no control over the accuracy of external sites but I had put pet in the registration information when I made the reservation through Candlewood. We (myself, my wife, and Atlas the Wonder Dog) loved the stay but the rate discrepancy was a disappointment. I would highly recommend the location for non-pet travelers but the pet policy should discourage any pet travelers as the price becomes unreasonable.

My wife, son and I stayed just one night this past weekend and everything about our stay was just great!! From our initial greeting by the Front Desk Clerk to the check-in process we were all pleased. The room was absolutely perfect, it was spotless and very comfortable. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. We will definitely stay at this hotel again when we are back in the area. Thank You on behalf of my entire family!!
