Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by John10011 Good stay for basic ammenties.
Good stay for basic ammenties. However I wish they would also offer complimentary breakfast as well. The Candlewood Cupboard was pretty bad with some items way overpriced. Also when we wanted the room cleaned after a few days of staying there the lady at the front desk had a rude attitude and stated "Did you ask housekeeping to clean your room?" and after I said yes she stated "Well did you know there is an extra charge for that?" in a really rude attitude way. If your going to pay for something you should always receive the best quality for it and by this property not offering normal housekeeping I feel like that is kind of a rip off and lazy. At least lower the rates if you going to take out some of the basic ammenties.

I've stayed here a few times over the last two months. Great value for cost. Staff are always friendly and helpful. Furniture in some rooms is worn and stained. Overall good experience.

I've stayed at this Candlewood Suites several times now. For me, it's the best budget hotel in the area. It's clean and everything is pretty new. It's a little hard to find but is close to major shopping.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Kmel95 Newly renovated Rooms - Almost
This location can be an excellent value at below per diem rates if you overlook some of the pitfalls. Arriving on a hot August Day, staying on the 3rd floor was quite a bit warmer than the 1st or 2nd floors. The Hotel has been recently renovated - almost. Management obviously paid attention to newly re-furbished bathroom and kitchen areas with tile walkways, new carpeting and fresh paint. The room contained a recent model flat-screen TV with a good variety of cable channels to choose from. My king size bed was also quite comfortable . Unfortunately the in-room lounge chair and desk chair were quite dated, with the old vinyl covering worn and peeling off in several areas, definitely leaving an unpleasant impression of a second rate hotel. The refrigerator was likewise pretty old, and the temp control had to be placed at max in order to get anything cold (the poor compressor was probably almost out of freon and pretty much stayed always on). With the fridge always running and the pretty loud in-room air conditioner, one needs to consider using air-plugs in order to have a quiet night's sleep. The front desk experience was fine and use of the on-site barbeques can be a real plus at keeping down one's dinner expenses. The onsite laundry facilities and fitness center also look to be nicely outfitted. Perhaps I would have had a better impression here with a little more money thrown at renovating all of the furniture and some maintenance or replacement of the dated fridge.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by pukfan My home away from home
Been coming here for over a decade for business trips. Conveniently located. Friendly staff. Free movies and books. Full kitchen and awesome bed. Exercise room. The cuppboard has helped with many a midnight snack. And free washer/dryer machines. Only complaint is the silverware is a bit lacking if you eat in and stay more than a couple of nights though i generally get plasticware at the local store. It is not the fanciest hotel and carpe ts showing its age, but i have stayed at the fancy hotels and they generally spend all their money on the entrance and hallways and leave you with a 4wall box. A real pain when candlewood is not available!

Came from the big city where I paid 2x the price for a room 1/2 the size. My boys loved the DVD selection and the popcorn in the microwave! My wife and I liked our own room! Clean and quiet! This was the last hotel on our vacation and it was the most affordable and the best one we stayed at!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GEEGEE2 Making a long trip comfortable with a great price
My wife and I stayed at two of your properties on our trip. The Candlewood Suites in Huntsville were extremely comfortable, and the staff was courteous at all times. The room and grounds were very clean. I also enjoyed being able to keep my poodle and when we took him out, there was a clean grassy area for him to enjoy. Since my retirement, we are looking forward to many more trips, and hope that there will be a Candlewood Suites wherever we decide to go, as we will continue to be repeat customers. We have, and will recommend The Candlewood Suites to all our friends since we had a wonderful experience. 10 stars out 10. Thank you.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Redbird89 Some really good points, some really bad too
First the bad points of Candlewood Huntsville. The shower was NOT GOOD, which to me is very important to start and/or finish a travel day. REALLY low water pressure, it took a long long time to get lukewarm, luckily a hot day so cool shower was bearable. There was no bath fan to ventilate which be more harm for the hotel later than for my stay. And lastly bad, while I found Huntsville and that area very nice, it was extremely hard to find partly because gps sends you in circles, the roads GO in circles every which way, and the hotel is set way off the road with VERY little signage to find it and those signs are mostly blocked from view by trees. I LOVE trees but come on. Now the good, and there was a lot to like the rooms were VERY clean and comfortable with a terrific layout and a GREAT kitchenette, way beyond most hotel kitchenettes especially that affordable. Which leads to the price, much better than others in the area and really nice rooms other than the shower. And last but not least the girl who checked us in, unfortunately I forgot her name and wasn't able to find out later, she was EXTREMELY helpful and very very nice. Overall a good place to stay but not great, yet.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DST4life Excellent Stay At Candlewood Suites
The stay was pleasant and the staff was great. Hats off to Anita, Sharon, and the other pleasant lady on the night shift. Monique did an excellent job maintaining my room, and when she wasn't their the other housekeeping staff that worked with her assisted in any way possible. It was nice being able to borrow utensils and toasters from the front desk. I stayed there for five weeks and had no problems.

Its hard to beat the comfort and cleanliness of the room we stayed in. I like to wear socks to walk around at night. Not a flipper guy. Most of the time I wear white socks. The bottom of socks stayed white because the floor and carpet were very clean. Staff was great!!!!!

Great location off the interstate and close to a mall but private at the same time. The room was very nice, clean and plenty of room. The staff was very helpful with all our questions. Free washer & dryer if needed with a very nice workout room. Next trip to Huntsville I will make a point to return to Candlewood Suites.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BT58 Great Room
The room was very comfortable. The bathroom had shelves so you could put your personal items on them instead of leaving them on the counter or under the sink. The bed was so comfortable, I did not want to get up for work. The location was a perfect location to enter gate 10 for the base. The workout equipment had been replaced since I had last stayed there. The room was decorated modern and up to date --- very clean.

I am a Priority Club Member but was not very familiar with these Homewood properties. But because of convenience and price I booked this one for one night. After the experience I would have liked to stay all week there. The layout and comfort of the room was like a studio apartment. It was quiet and comfortable. Check in was fast and professional. Check out was convenient and fast. I will return to this property when I'm in the area.

What a great stay!!!! Simply Stellar. My daughter and I stayed here for a night during a soccer event, and from the moment we walked into the property we were treated like we were VIP's. The spin the wheel promo earned my daughter a stuffed animal, and we got a sample of snacks as priority members. We enjoyed the snacks while borrowing DVD from the collection at the front desk. My daughter, who has become quite the road warrior with travel soccer loved this hotel. Thanks for a great stay.

I stayed at this Candlewood Suites for 27 days. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The hotel is location is convenient to all of Huntsville, Redstone Arsenal and the Jetplex Industrial area. The hotel recognizes the limitation of its exercise room and compliments this with a free membership to a local gym, The gym is only minuets away and easy to get to. This was a very nice surprise. I would stay here again and definitely recommend Candlewood Suites to anyone with an extended stay in Huntsville.

This was my second stay at this location. The rooms both visits were very clean and still seemed "new" even though it has been a short while now since the property was remodeled. It was as though I was the very first guest. The staff was professional, friendly, and welcoming. I didn't really use the cupboard but I did look at it. It appeared well stocked and organized. I think it is a great value for professionals, exectutives and families. I plan to repeat often as I return to the Huntsville area.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Greg6628 Two Week Visit
Candlewood is a very concept as I notice many hotels are offering full kitchens for convenience. The room was fair to good. Unfortunately, during my stay, I had to call the front to request that they call the guests in 238 about their noise (heavy wlaking and bumping). They left the next day and another guest moved in and I had the same problem. I called myself and it was a female guest and I was surprised becuase the fottsteps seemed to indicate that the person was mcuh heavier. This lead me to believe there is no sound insulation in the floors/ceilings. Also, there was a fire alarm on the morning of my departure (or the day before). There was a loss of hot water for almost a full day and I was unable to take a shower before going to class. There was also another unexplained mishap with the water in which the hall leading to my room was filled with noise blowers for almost my entire stay. I was also very unhappy with the policy of only providing room service once a week. If for no other reason, I will probably NOT use Candlewood again. The staff was friendly and accomodating. I was told that I was given 10,000 points for the inconvenience of the hot water and I am supposed to receive another 1,000 points for the spin the wheel game upon checking in. They also need a few more utensils in the rooms. Overall, my stay was OKAY but I would not write home and brag about it. Though the location is very convenient to the location that I had to go to on a daily basis.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Grandy Enjoyed Our Stay
We spent three nights in an updated one bedroom suite, and we were pleased with everything about it. There was storage for everything, clothing or food items or toiletries. Bathroom was large. Bedroom had good linens and ample walking space. Wi-Fi was available and free. DVDs were available to check out for free from the office. We stayed at this place last year also, and like the location as it is in a quiet area, but very convenient to shopping and restaurants. . We loved the set-up of the suite since it had a kitchen area, place for computers and eating, a full living room and bedroom. We will definitely stay here again, and since we previously lived in Huntsville, we plan a return visit. Candlewood has a winner with this!
