Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Patsy jack Because we like Candlewood....
we stayed, however, we won't stay at Candlewood Houston NW-Willowbrook ever again. It's the most awful location I've seen. Blink and miss the entrance. The sign is not high enough to see when approaching and if you aren't familiar with the area (like us), you miss it completely. Also, trying to get out onto the road is a nightmare. It certainly made us to not want to visit that location again.

I have stayed here several times before. This time was not a good time. I booked a one bedroom suite so my granddaughter could stay with me after her graduation. The had my reservation wrong and my granddaughter couldn't stay with me. It was too late to look for another hotel as I needed a room right then since my husband was not attending the graduation.. I asked for a comp room so she could stay with me and the clerk did not call the manager to see if she could do it or offer it to me. At this point I am in TEARS.
And then I asked for a channel guide for the TV since one was not in the room and the clerk could not provide one.
Usually I don't do reviews but it was not a good experience.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by AllegrA77 Bad experience.
I recently went to Houston and decided to stay at Candlewood for the convenience of the location. It was not a good experience... The cleaning staff woke me up at 7:00 am. They knocked and entered in matter of seconds...they were not patient. That was rude!!!! they apologized and left. And 30 minutes after that it happend again!!!!! another cleaning staff member opened the door while I was sleeping! Her excuse was that she wasn't informed...????!!!!!!!! She spoke English well btw, so it wasn't a language problem. That made me have an awful experience since sleeping well is ALL I desire, expect and want from a hotel stay.
Also I left an umbrella - I called and the front desk clerk said they will call me when they found it, and they have not called yet - so they stole it from me... I'm 100% sure I left it in the room. I WILL NEVER GO BACK TO THIS HOTEL.

As far as the hotel goes, it is a good example of a well-kept Candlewood Suites. Everything was 'as expected' and clean. The staff was very friendly and went above and beyond the 'call of duty'. The best part of any Candlewood Suites is their laundry. If you travel 100% of the time as we do, the laundry facilities are a huge issue. Theirs were clean and well maintained. The driers took a little longer to dry but since they were free, we just put them through a second round and everything came out perfect.
Our big issue with our visit was not the fault of the Hotel. The 800 line lost our reservation, despite us having a confirmation number which they could verify. What we expect happened was the attendant on the 800 line did not understand English well enough enter our names correctly so they wouldn't honor the reservation because the name didn't match, despite the credit card on the reservation was verified as ours. By the time they canceled that reservation and entered a new one, we lost our room. After requesting a supervisor and being hung-up on three times in at attempt to talk to a supervisor, we finally got them to book us a room. Without making it clear, they then booked us into two rooms, NOT the room types of our choice, requiring us to change rooms during our visit.
We were very irritated that our reservation was lost and then, after an 18 hour drive, were asked to change rooms early the next morning. So much for being Platinum members!!! It does little good.
The only saving grace was the staff who offered to help us move and was very nice. This was not their fault on any level. They were upset over having to ask us to move and tired their best to help us through the uncomfortable procedure. My wife is handicapped so moving her again, after an 18 drive, was not easy.
In short, the hotel was very good and we will stay there again when we go back down to Houston (Willowbrook) but I would definitely call the hotel directly and not mess with the reservations people who are incompetent and rude at best. We have stayed months at a time with Candlewood but have always called the hotels directly to make arrangements, we will not be using the reservations line again.

Staff was friendly and helpful. Although small the room was clean and comfortable. Location could have been better as traffic was terrible (Holidays) and crazy. The bed could have been positioned better as it was very difficult to get into from one side. There is no continental breakfast offered, only coffee in the small lobby "store".

This is the second time my husband and I have stayed at your hotel. We will always stay there because it is so clean, comfortable, and reasonable. My children live in Houston and we come for an extended stay every two years. The only thing I could say that would improve your hotel is lights on the sign on the street. It is a little hard to find at night. One big plus on this stay is you have changed the laundry so that I do not have to find quarters. A BIG thumbs up!!!

Our stay was handled perfectly! Not only is the hotel immaculately maintained, but the staff is friendly and very attentive. We were promptly greeted when we walked in the door. Check in was smooth and all paperwork clearly explained. There were even well maintained bell carts to use. When we had an issue with the ac unit in our first room the manager was quick to get us a new room, bring our new keys up to us, and provide us with reward points for the inconvenience.
