The area is perfect. If you don't want to be right there in the tourist trap, this is a perfect location. We were visiting family and I 4 was close and the location was perfect.

We booked this hotel because it was very close to the Sanford Airport that we were flying out of in the morning. The people at the front desk were very nice and courteous as we checked in. Check in was quick and everything that was available in the hotel was explained to us. We get to room and it had lots of space with a comfy bed and a kitchen. Kitchen came in handy as we went to Publix and bought some groceries. After a week at Disney and Universal, my wife was able to wash and dry all our clothes before we flew in. My children enjoyed to free games that were available to them. The pool was extremely clean. Although we did not use them, there were two bar b que gas grills available. I travel alot due to work and for leisure with my family and had never stayed at a Candlewood, but I will definitely look for one next time we do travel. Thank you!

The location is out of the way and yet close to whatever you would need; it's in a corporate park wooded setting. Low traffic.
The customer service is wonderful.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by traveling teacher Will stay here again
This is a great place to stay for business travel as the rooms are "homey". It is nice to find a dog friendly hotel. I like the option not to have the room cleaned as I have no need to change towels or sheets in a short stay and hate the overuse of chemicals and purfumey sent of most hotel rooms. I have stayed here several times. Most of the staff are great; however one this stay was unable to help me with a phone problem stating, "I don't know how those phones upstairs work". It was not a huge problem as I looked in the manual provided in the room and figured it out. It is just that kind of attitude I do not expect as a guest. The young lady that checked me out was one of the stand outs, so I will return.

We were in Lake Mary from New York for our grandson's graduation on May 23, 2014. Although our stay was brief, we wish to compliment the courteous and friendly staff at the Candlewood Suites Lake Mary for a most enjoyable stay. The grounds were well kept and beautifully landscaped. We felt welcomed and the staff made every effort to assist us in every way. Our room was clean and the bed was dreamily comfortable. They also assisted with directions to the graduation venue. Great Job! Thank you.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by rootsbaby Great Service and Amazing Stay
I got this room because it wasn't near all the traffic congestion near the major theme parks. It was a quiet area. I love the outside of the hotel and inside was very modern. The desk clerk was very friendly and helpful. Did have a hard time finding the Master Switch in the room to turn on all the electrical outlets and lights (Feel like this is something that should be explained at check in). But other than that I have no complaints. The room served its purpose. Me and my friend (who slept on the sofa bed) enjoyed our stay as much as we enjoyed The Roots Concert we went to see.

The hotel in it self was ok. We stayed there a couple of years ago and the strong smell of maybe disinfectant was present then and again with this stay, not sure but was very overwhelming. We stayed on the end suite and the road noise from
I-4 was very noticable. We most likely will not be staying there again.

Reserved last minute due to my flight being diverted. Arrived very late/early morning. Desk clerk was welcoming and helpful. Reminded me of optional late check-out which I was so tired to even request; though I didn't need it due to scheduled meeting but I appreciated her inquiry. Room was stocked and had morning coffee. Food shop had a variety and I used it upon arrival. Checkout staff had a smile and offered carryout cup to go with their free iced punch. Great customer service and I would stay again if in the area. Only drawback is the location, but it's balanced with the cost.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by gypsy16 Needs some work.
The cleanliness is fine. There are a lot of things that need some maintenance and mgmt. cuts too many corners in maintaining costs.
---2 treadmills broken the day we got there--1 was fixed the next day.
---2 washers out of service.
---couldn't receive a fax from work-had to email it.
---poorly maintained BBQ's.
---the heater in our room rattled when it ran.
---the toilet plugged at 3 am.
---the worst Wi-Fi reception I can remember.
---really poor quality coffee cups and no newspapers.
This all points to cheap mgmt. Put some money back into the business. The business is there.
For staff mention Joshua is excellent.

We just spent the month of Feb. with our dog at Candlewood. It was a nice experience. The staff was very friendly, and did everything they could to make our stay enjoyable. It's located in a very nice area with lots of nice areas to walk our dog.

I've stayed at this property for the last three years. The staff welcome me back as an old friend. It is a great value for the two weeks at the height of the winter holidays. Also the surrounding community offers plenty of opportunity for dining.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 170turner Need to replace the beds
The beds are all double beds, and need to be flipped or replaced, would have been better if the beds were queen size, the room was clean, and the staff was very nice, parking was good, the price was a little high, perhaps because we stayed during the Daytona 500 race. Over all it was ok, but don't think we would stay at that motel again.

When we checked in, a roach ran across the floor in front of us. When we went to the room there was ants in the bed. The bedsheets and cover were full of recent stains. The room smelled like mildew. This was one of the worst experiences with an IHG brand hotel. There are other hotel options in the area, I would choose something else next time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cullison812 Comfort
This property helps provide comfort. I travel for a living, and have spent too many nights eating in restaurants. Not only is it nice to be able to cook my own food, but to be able to relax while doing it. It helps that they offer free laundry. When you travel 300+ days a year, it is nice to not always feel like you are 'in a hotel'. The staff has a great since of humor and got me anything I needed. Any time work #or play# brings me to the Orlando area, this is the property I will stay at.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MadDad47 Dirty! Dirty! Dirty!
This is the first and last time I will stay at this property. As a Platinum member, I have stayed in many IGH hotel chains and this one rates as the worst. We don’t normally stay at Candlewood Suites but felt the kitchens would be beneficial as we were on a family vacation. Upon entering our rooms, we noticed a musty smell in the air. The ceiling had several water marks and had been patched from what looked like a water issue. The room was very dingy and did not appear to be very clean. My wife noted dirt on the wall and the switch plates that had been there for a while. The beds were old and sagged significantly in the middle. Upon pulling the sheets down for bed, my wife noticed hairs on the sheets and on the pillows. We stripped the beds and pillows and I took them downstairs for a replacement set. The attendant apologized for the room not being clean and for the sheets not being replaced (no action was taken to correct the issue to my knowledge). The replacement sheets were very yellow and dingy looking but at least they smelled fresh. The stay was not enjoyable and I was embarrassed that my family had to be subjected to this dirty/smelly facility.

We found the facility very comfortable and convenient. It is a great value for the price. Have stayed twice in the last year, was equally enjoyable and satisfactory both times. We Plan to stay again when we're in the area.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Kev7734 Ok but a little less quality then most Candlewood locations I have stayed at.
When checking in, there was a couple trying to check in ahead of us. Candlewood did not have their reservation on file. The person on duty at check in did not quite know how to handle the situation, and had to call the manager off site to get straightened out. After waiting almost 30 minutes to check in we went to our room. The hotel room was clean but showed its age and appeared a little run down. The area was quiet and easy to get to, that was a plus.
