Candlewood Suites at the Houston Medical Center was more than I expected for my stay in Houston. Every hotel employee I had the pleasure of dealing with was extremely pleasant, helpful and accommodating. Kim, D'Avonti and Claudia stood out above all of the rest. The hotel itself was very nice and kept very clean. It was a wonderful experience!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Marcea02 Great price, but lacking some basics
The hotel is very clean, rooms are clean. Furniture in my room was very worn and cracked, The room temp was tough to get consistent. It was either very cold or hot. Don't like how AC shuts off in the middle of the night due to in activity. I stay at this hotel because it is next door to my companies Houston offices and rely on the little store for breakfast. Choices were very slim, only had diet non caffeine cold drinks. I have stayed here a few times and it has always been a great value for the price, but this time I was very disappointed.

I have nothing but praise for this hotel. We were in town for doctors visits. We were called immediately after checking in to see if there was anything that we needed. Upon checking out, we were told to have a great day. Actually, the clerk made my day. The room was clean and well supplied. The cost of the room was well below what we expected to pay compared to other hotels in the area.
We will return next year!!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 Decent hotel for the money
The staff is nice, the place is kept clean, but there are a couple things to consider.
First the location is terrible if you are not in town for medical treatment at Medical Center, or going to an event at NRG. There is nothing around, it is a grimy part of town, and ugly.
Also, I stayed here for nearly two months, and in that time only two out of five washing machines worked. The problem was brought to the attention of management, they brought out a repair guy, which accomplished nothing. When I left, two machines worked. That is annoying and inconvenient, especially when Candlewood makes such a big deal about this amenity. Read other reviews from between May and now and you will see many guests mention this, and one response even says it was taken care of, this is not true as of July 23rd. Besides them being broken it looks like they have never been cleaned, which was also mentioned to management, and not addressed.
The internet is garbage, if you need good fast internet on your stay you wont get that here.
There is a pool but they dont use it. Its hot in Houston, you may want a place with a pool.
We got a good medical rate, we never felt unsafe, and like I said, they keep the place pretty clean and the staff is friendly, so if the location works for you and you won't be staying for an extended period you can probably save some money staying here. But for long stays where you need to have internet and washing machines, you may want to weigh your options.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Nashaban very bad smell overall the hotel
As I'm a platinum IHG member, I never experienced this stay in any hotel around the world.
They have to change the carpet, the smell is bad and it is not upto the living standards, I have to change hotel, even i complain to the front desk, they can't do anything, I was surprised that management didn't bother to call and try to do something,

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The location was 10 min away from everything you need. Very clean and safe. No problems with my vehicle while sleeping. And pet friendly. I will be staying here again and would recommend this place to others.

The hotel is nice, but the staff should communicate with the residents when problem occur with transportation, and address issues regarding unsanitary problems in public areas. Housekeeping should be on call to address problems pointed out, to make the stay for guest and their visitors more enjoyable.

This is my second time with this specific Candlewood Suites. I felt so comfortable and safe, I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else. Everyone is exceptionally friendly and helpful. This property is being managed extremely effectively. Thank you for your dedication to your guests.

The only negative about this hotel is that the mattresses are very hard. It would not stop me from staying at this establishment any time I'm in the Houston area. Excellent customer service, clean, and not far from shopping and restaurants. Really enjoyed our stay!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by LJV53 Three's a crowd!
I have stayed at this property once and another Candlewood property once and both times I was given a room that was already occupied! This happened twice at the previous property. This is extremely embarrassing for both me and the other guest and I don't understand why the hotel doesn't know where and who are staying in their room's. Please train your desk personnel on the proper use of the booking software.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by comedy ann Bad experience, but not the worse.
Were given smoking suite, because a "non-smoking" suite was "not available". The room smelled so strong of smoke, we couldn't stay in that room. "Miraculously", a non-smoking suite was available 5 minutes later!?? The room's phone NEVER worked the entire time we were there. It was supposed to have been fixed, but never was. I couldn't even call the front desk or get a wake-up call! If you don't like, or are sensitive to overhead lighting, you will not be thrilled at the fact that the "entire building" was wired so you had to have the overhead lights on for all lighting! The lamps and light fixtures were not separate. Bed was comfortable, but room was small. Liked the recliner in the living area, but A/C had a unit in the living area that had to be turned on with the main A/C, and blew cold air on anyone sitting on or near the couch. We had a very hard time, and were having to constantly get up and down, to adjust the A/C. The shuttle van, while very much appreciated, was difficult to get in and out of, as it was very high off the ground. The manager, Yvonne, did try to personally accommodate the guests, but in the end, the phone never worked, and we never got a lamp, a somewhat minor inconvenience, especially compared to the phone not working. Also, at check-out, Yvonne offered a few extras that were greatly appreciated.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chuks Comfortable bed and great hospitality by Yvonne Small
I was in Houston for the OTC conference and spent 5 nights. Room was quite comfortable and I experienced a warm ambience. Very timely shuttle service and most importantly experienced home away from home. Special thanks to the warm front desk and especially the smiles and great hospitality by Yvonne Small. Will definitely recommend this hotel and for sure will stay in Candlewood for my next OTC .

Upon check-in, we immediately recognized the friendliness and warm hospitality extended to us (and our 2 Shi Tzu dogs) by the hotel staff. The room was spacious, clean, and temperature-controlled.
Yvonne, the manager, went above and beyond in her efforts to insure that our stay was pleasant and comfortable, informing us of the shuttle service and times from the hotel to M.D. Anderson, and back.
It was not until the next day, when we were at our son's house in Dallas, did we realize that we had left behind two large groups of hanging clothes in the hotel closet in Houston. The hotel had already tried to notify us, but had attempted to call our home phone. The end result was that Yvonne and her very kind staff, packed our clothes in a box, went immediately to the Fed Ex office, and we had our "left-behind" items within a couple of days.
We always prefer Candlewood Suites (and other IHG hotels) because of their pet-friendly attitude, and always outstanding customer-oriented service.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by XP Ranch Great place to stay
This hotel is a great place to stay, we were involved in an event at the Reliant Arena, just a short drive away (5 minutes). This property is tucked back into the middle of a city block with a nice iron fence surrounding the outside. Felt very secure, and protected from outside traffic. Highly recommended, we will be back next year for the Stock Show. Thanks!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by radar100 Non-smoking room
Have stayed here on several occasions for medical visits to M. D. Anderson. Have had bad experience on last 2 visits. Called Feb. 16, 2014 to make reservations for a visit on March 10, 2014. I called the direct number and was transferred to the reservation service. Requested the 1 bedroom suite with separate bedroom and was told one was available, but was wheel chair access only.(which we did not need) Requested non-smoking also. Upon check in was given room 122(smoking room). The furnishing are very worn and need to be replaced. It appears the property is not maintained as well as it was a year ago.
