Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by asdoek456 Great Stay
Complementary bag of popcorn upon check-in
Complementary fresh coffee throughout the day - great selection of sugars & creamers
Well stocked pantry and reasonable prices.
Complementary cookies throughout the day - My daughter and I went down daily to snag some. One day the front desk even called to let us know they were just set out and were still warm!
Very comfy beds, nice furniture and decor, plenty of electrical outlets
Spacious rooms & bathrooms
Everything was very clean. Everyday housekeeping did purpose-full cleaning in the lobby -from spritzing the plants with water to vacuuming and moping. I got the impression that when they cleaned it wasn't just a mindless job they did for pay. I feel like they cleaned because they take pride in their hotel.
Front desk clerks were very friendly and housekeepers were cheerful and just sweet as could be
While we were staying here, they had a Halloween party & costume contest for staff families & hotel guests. There was a ton of food and many children and adults came in costume. In general there is a sense of family amongst the hotel workers. Also, they had many of the public areas decked out with Halloween decorations.
The rooms were set up with comfort in mind. Something as small as the alarm clock made the room feel like they thought out how to make it comfortable. For example, the subtle alarm clock display was easy on the eyes - not the harsh red numbers that glare across the room.
They welcome pets. They require a deposit of $40 for the entire stay. That is a really great price! They also give you a magnet for your door to let people know to be mindful of your pet if they enter your room.
Nice bathtub. Really great shower head. The shower curtain bows out, making more room when taking a shower.
Very quiet. We did not hear a peep through the walls and we did not hear anything from the hallway (people or doors shutting) a single time.
Within walking distance to restaurants, liquor store, and Walmart
The only cons to the hotel are the dolly ramps are not in front of the main entrance.They are on either side of it a couple of parking spaces away and they are a bit on the narrow side. There is no awning over the main entrance either.
I would absolutely recommend the Candlewood hotel in McAlester.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tallgrassphotographer Great suite--above expectations!
This is the 2nd year my husband and I have "stopped over" in McAlester on our way to Houston, Texas. Both times we have been very pleased with our suite at the Candlewood. This year we were greeted by a very pleasant young lady at the front desk. She inquired as to our dinner plans & gave us a couple of suggestions #including that Rib Crib offered a discount to Candlewood's guests#. We had dinner at the Italian restaurant across the street #excellent, too!#. She also invited us to the Halloween party that was being held in the lobby later that evening. Our suite was extremely clean and comfortable. The amenities were very ample.
We noted that it was actually one of the more less expensive hotels in the area on the website we visited #we booked directly thru the hotel site, however#. We will definitely be making reservations at the Candlewood Suites next year and would have no hesitation in recommending it to others travelling through McAlester.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JohnDoe3 Unexplained charges
The hotel was always very clean and the majority of the staff was friendly. Housekeeping was prompt but when they were in the room they informed the Management of the things in the room. Maybe part of their job but extremely creepy and made me not feel comfortable with them being in there. I began cleaning and doing my own laundry (towels & linens) due to it. My main complaint was the fact that I was charged over $800 on my credit card AFTER I had checked out and was not given a reason or courtesy call as to explain why. My billing was frequently charged later than on Friday which I was told when it would be, causing random amounts instead of a set weekly amount. Also, if you leave your room for any amount of time, the AC shuts off. So when you return, your room WILL BE scorching hot. Mine was 91 upon my return at 10pm at night. Imagine the fun in attempting to go to sleep when it's that hot. In the morning when I woke up it was still 74. Even with these things, overall the hotel and staff was friendly and the rooms were clean. This is not an indictment on this place, just my personal experience here. I was an extended stay over and travel frequently. Just be sure to check your credit card/debit card statement closely for about a week or two after you leave, and if there's anything fishy…don't expect a courtesy call.

I work with CCI systems, this is a company that goes all over the country. I've stayed at hundreds of different hotels. And at least 15 different Candlewood suites. This one here, by far exceeds my expectations on service friendliness and above all, being clean!! All of the staff here are very friendly and upbeat, the housekeeping staff are prompt and very thorough. The front desks are knowledgeable and friendly giving you a good experience day after day.
The rooms are spacious and comfortable, the kitchenette makes you feel like you're not away from home-the gazebo and the complementary grills makes the weekend better.
Will be here for at least another month, will truthfully miss this place and these people.
Thank you for the great experience.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ljhand Great experience!
We stayed 2 nights at Candlewood Suites and couldn't have been more comfortable. The room was large and peaceful. We were in McAlester because of a death in the family and Candlewood was such a breath of fresh air in the evenings to relax and unwind.
We would happily recommend staying at Candlewood Suites to anyone and everyone.
The staff was very kind and courteous as well.

Very comfortable, clean and well furnished. We were worried when checking in as the receptionist was new and in training and there were 3-4 people in line. She should not have been left alone on the desk, but she was very nice and accommodating. Other than this, it was a pleasure to stay here. We'll definitely be back!
