Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GATina Excellent value
I routinely stay at Candlewood Suites on Belfort Road in Jacksonville for work. There aren't enough wonderful things to say about the staff, service and facilities. I stay there a couple of nights each week, and I have yet to have a complaint. The only thing that I would consider a possible improvement might be to have an automatic sliding door into the lobby for guests who have their arms full of luggage. Otherwise, everything is very good. The cupboard is well stocked, the rooms have always been very clean and comfortable, and the front office staff, housekeeping and maintenance are extremely friendly and helpful. I've tried several other hotel brands. For the value and overall experience, I'd challenge anyone to find a better one in Jacksonville than Candlewood.

Overnight or for extended stay I have stayed at this Candlewood Suites for both. The bathroom on my last stay was not up to par, but the Staff took care of it immediately. I Recommend this Candlewood Suites.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Englishtart Excellent hotel, very clean/comfortable
We stayed only one night, but the suite was big enough and really stocked well enough for a much longer stay. I would recommend this hotel to anyone for business or pleasure. The gym and common areas were great, staff very friendly and professional.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by KP28 Great Experience but only once a week cleaning is not enough
Overall very good experience, but they have staff to clean only once a week, which is really less. Staff very co-operative.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Traveling-Chris Recommended
It was a very comfortable place to stay, but would have preferred more than one bed. The Internet was great. It was safe and secure with access codes.
The front desk was not 24/7, and the actual hotel was not very secure. There was no security attendant, and no reception area if we experienced an issue.
There was no complimentary breakfast, although the website indicated there was. The store on-site did cost too much for food items, and the restaurants in the area were very close, but kind of expensive, too.
It was close to the hospital, and had an exercize room. It also had free laundry. I did not use the laundry of gym.
I had used it for a surgery and felt comfortable, but would have been more comfortable not sharing the bed, and not going to restaurants in pain, or overcharged at on-site-store.
The central air was comfortable, however there was also a wall unit blowing cold air during a cold 30 degree day, and should have said how to turn it off, instead of saying the thermostat controlled it, when it did not.
It was okay, but for the price, could have been much better. It was almost average condition, at least with breakfast included in prices. Places costing less even include breakfast.
I do go on many vacations for medical reasons, as well as leisure, and business, too.
However, would maybe consider a different facility with complimentary breakfast, better climate control, more reasonable food prices at on-site facilities, and a security guard, or gated entrance, and a 24/7 front reception area, and keyed doors everywhere. I just felt the security was lacking.
I would recommend it with improvements.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ammajammam Spacious room and speedy service
I was pleased with the set up of the room. The bathroom was large and clean with plenty of quality towels. The complimentary microwave popcorn and coffee was a nice gesture albeit we do not use microwave popcorn or coffee. We would have LOVED fresh bananas or oranges instead. The bed was comfy but a bit itchy. I would have liked a little more kitchen counter space, since all our food was made in the hotel for the week we were there. The TV did not have many channels to choose from. The stove top was not functioning correctly. Since there is no oven , a small toaster oven would be great! Other than the internet and stove top issues, our stay was fine overall. And depending on the price, we may stay again when we visit.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SanFranDude Good for its kind
For the extended stay type hotels, I was pleasantly surprised at how nice the room was. The staff was also very welcoming. My dissapointment was that the hotels name is Candlewood SUITES and you get a tiny room. I believe its an IHG-wide adjustment pf definition of the word "suite".
Also, I really didnt care for the poor sound proof; I was greatful that my neighbors werent party animals, but I still could hear every single move a person next to me or person above me made. I arrived on a 4night stay, I adjusted it to one. Bed was very comfortable, I just had an issue with noise and their definition of "suite". Oh, and platinum upgrade? I didnt even ask why they didnt offer it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HRBJLR Great Staff....GREAT STAY!!!!
We stayed at Candlewood suites on Belfort Rd in Jacksonville Fl, for almost 2 months. We had a very bad situation in our home we were renting and we were forced to leave it do to being sick.
The staff here was GREAT! They made us feel like this was our home and they were kind and respectful. I had only one issue though my girlfriend left a make up bag at the bottom of the steps as her hands were full and we were staying on the 3rd floor. Well someone stole the bag. I spoke with the staff they had me call their insurance provider for the property. I just wanted to get the money back that all her make up was worth. It was over $300. But they refused they were not responsible for items being stolen on their property. But we still stayed there anyhow and I am pleased that we did. The staff always was so professional there. Over all our stay was great and we just learned our lesson not to leave our things unattended.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Birdd Reasonable price and good comfort
Room quality and prices were great. The staff did not know how to check to make sure that my reward points were applied. The cleaning staff started very early and could hear them talking in the hall...little warning of the early cleaning times would have been nice. I got up after being up late driving due to hearing hall discussion, the then they tried to come in when you can clearly hear the shower running through the wall. But they were all very nice. A little warning of early start was the only improvement that could be made.

I am glad that I decided to stay at the Candlewood in Jacksonville, FL. The price was very reasonable for the quality of the room/suite. I really appreciated the large working space that combined the dresser top, desktop, and table top. This was a great idea! I plan to stay here every time I drive to/from FL.

We stayed here for three weeks and we like the location it's very accessible to everything. The room was very clean, spacious and the bed comfortable. The frontdesk staff welcome us like family each time we walk through the lobby. They treat every guest this way. The staff were friendly, courteous and helpful including housekeeping. We will definitely stay here again in future and recommend it and the best thing is the area safe.

I travel for work and my stay ended up being approximately 4 months. As my first experience of an extended stay property I was impressed by: cleanliness; updated features &
decor; staff professionalism; flexiblity with check out dates and any
requests. If I ever find myself back in the area or in need of an extended stay hotel, this will absolutely be at the top of my list.

The staff person at the front desk definitely needs more training regarding the hotel and surrounding area in addition to being more personable.
Very disappointed with Candlewood Suites Corporate Customer Service folks.
