Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jeff4 Great location, bad for non-smokers
If you're a non-smoker, good luck not smelling like smoke when you get done with your stay here. The floors are intermingled meaning that there's a good chance your neighbor will be a smoker and the walls and circulation systems are not adequate enough to buffer you from the smoke. The halls are an even bigger issue as it smells as if someone has just lit up. The hotel itself was nice, appeared clean and was up to snuff on most everything you'd expect. One of the two washers was not working, and 2 out of four dryers were not working. Fitness center was well equipped, tv selection was good.
Overall the hotel itself is average, but I would look at other places next time in town that actually have real smoking and non-smoking areas.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Arizona Clint Cancellation Issue
Had to shorten our stay. Actually had 2 reservations. Cancelled last 3 days of first reservation. No problem. Cancelled 2nd reservation at front desk due to having to shorten our stay. Was told it was completed. Later that week my credit card was charged for a No Show! Called hotel back; got it straightened out. Talked to Manager ( Chris) later, who was extremely helpful, apologetic, and ensured me the issue was taken care of. He was very professional, courteous, and reassuring. Felt much better after speaking to him. Problem solved!!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by greg07 Major Issues at this property
Very poor room condition.
Moved three times.
Lots of noise.
This property has not been maintained and has had major management issues.
Smoke smell throughout.
I have tons of travel experience with all hotel properties and normally recommend Holiday Inn chain. This particular hotel has major issues in a area that also has major problems.
Beware of this hotel. Not recommended!

Candlewood is usually a good choice.. This one had some issues. Mostly communication between front desk and housekeeping.
If you book the standard all in 1 room suite, be prepared for small.
The mattresses are uncomfortable.
The temperature control is great.
The room was clean
The kitchen supplies and bathroom amenities are adequate

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by ThinkPink Worst hotel ever!!
Walking into the room took my breath away with the awful smell. There was food left in the fridge from the previous guest. The beds were very uncomfortable. Moving the chair uncovered heavy dust and food on the carpet. Lifting up the bed skirt also uncovered food on the carpet. We asked for extra blankets and were given a knit blanket full of holes and unraveling. We didn't even stay the the second night we had paid for because we couldn't stand it any longer. Don't waste your time and money on this location!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Misty31 dirty room
I would not stay at this hotel again, even though the staff was great the room was dirty with beer bottles on floor under chair and against the wall. The bathroom had black hair in the shower. The channels were not suited for kids at all. The swimming pool was indoors and clean however the water was freezing. Furthermore there was not hot water for my family to take a shower. When I went to complain to management they said they were sorry and that was it. I was also a IHG member and received nothing for that. My husband went down and they finally gave him 25 dollars off our bill which is better than nothing. Very disappointed because this hotel was in a great location for the tournament.

I loved the in-room kitchen (full sized refrigerator and microwave, 2 burner cook top and all the pots, pans and place settings) so I could cook in my room very easily. The room was very comfortable.
The hotel is conveniently located near a wide range of restaurants so when I did not want to cook, food options were nearby.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mark329 Not the cleanest.
This is my second stay and both times the first thing that I noticed was the kitchen area was not clean. This time the floor was sticky and the dishwasher was full.
When I went to get in the bed there were several stains on the fitted sheet. That did it for me. I will not stay at this location again.

We have stayed at this hotel several times over the last few years when we visit Memphis for work. We won't be staying there in the future. Starting with our reserved rooms not being ready at check in, the showers not working, no hot water in the morning and trash piled up at every elevator landing this is the worst hotel experience we have ever encountered. To bad this hotel used to be nice

Normally I do not write reviews but this was not a good experience.
I stay in many Candelwood suites and enjoy the stay.
I arrived Sunday afternoon, checked in and went to my room. I noticed the carpet had many stains. The hallway smelled like cigarette smoke. I went in the room and checked everything. I found the frying pan and spatula missing. I opened the fridge to put my things in and found a water baoole filled with some yellow liquid. I didn’t touch it. I went back to the office to tell them. They gave me a new room. This one was better but the bedding was very old and worn. I stayed two nights of the six I had booked. The second morning I went to take a shower and found no hot water. I ran the water for a half an hour before I got any warm water. At that point I checked into a different hotel and tried to check out. There were about 6 people waiting for the office to open at the advertised time of 7:00. It was 7:15. I tried calling the number and diling “0” but nobody answered. I called later to check out. I tried three times to have the bill emailed to me, I finally drove back to get my bill.
This is not your typical Candelwood experience, I was very disappointed.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mccoy999 Almost a great stay
While I enjoyed almost everything about my stay at the Candlewood Suites in Memphis there were 3 issues on which I would like to comment:
1. The icemaker in my refrigerator was not working. I reported this twice but no action was taken.
2. The kitchen did not have a can opener and the one I received at the front desk was defective so I had to use a knife to open a can.
3. I would prefer if the exercise room had some free weights or a weight machine with more stations than the one at this facility.
These are minor issues as the hotel was overall very comfortable and I would recommend it to other travelers.

The hallways smelled liked someone had been cooking Indian food for over a month, so unless you like the smell of Indian food, you should probably shy away from this hotel. The bathroom door had been kicked in and had a nice size hole in it. The bathroom floors seemed to be sticky, and we didn't feel comfortable walking around in our bare feet on the carpet either.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 2013travel Booked one night, stayed four nights.
My husband and I planned on staying only one night at the Candlewood Suites in Memphis, but ended up staying four nights.
We did have an issue with the toilet the first night and the staff were great and moved us to a different room the next day without any hesitation. The Manager Julie and her staff were great and there to help us with any questions we had.
Would definitely stay here again

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by M247 Worst Experince Ever - Will not stay again!
I am a Gold Member so understand that I consider the Candlewood properties everytime I need lodging. Infact I am staying at another great site in Dallas Texas this week. Also note that I never write reviews...
This location had several guests that did not consider others and the hotel did nothing to fix the issue. I had a mother and son playing kick ball out side my room in the coridor at 10 PM on a work day - my second night there. I had several beligerant party goers laughing and yelling until 3 AM the next night. I called down twice one at 1 AM when I was woken up and then at 3 AM - finaly they shut them up. By 5 AM they were back at it!
In the morning they asked me how my stay was - I had maybe 2 hours of sleep and had a very long drive a head of me so I told them it was terrible and I would never be back! The said sorry about that and please don't say that...that was all they did. I will never stay there again and if I owned your company I would remove my name from that building.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by roadwarrior1152 Mail a letter, flooding
I had to mail a letter, finished it on Saturday, and gave it to the front desk to mail. It was late, around 2PM. I noticed on Sunday, it was still on the counter behind the front desk. Monday, after working all day, I noticed it was still on the counter. The clerk said she would take it to the mailbox right then. That was on 1-15. As of 1-20, the addressee still had not received it. I'm not sure it ever got mailed.
There was a severe rainstorm. Water leaked into my room. My computer bag got soaked, along with a pair of jeans. I was moved to another room, where I could not receive some channels on the TV that I did in the other room.
They did credit me for one night for the flooded floor.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by bobkirk73 Cold showers and broken laundry facilities.
Cold showers, the only way to take a warm shower was to shower in the evening, if you showered in the morning, it was cold. There were two washing machines and four dryers, only one washing machine worked, one dryer worked well, two were just so-so and the fourth was broken. Found a half dead roach on my floor. Housekeeping came once during my entire two week stay. Front desk only open from 7:00 AM to 11:00 PM. I had to go to the airport before the front desk opened, so I gave them a heads-up the night before, still no receipt. I had to call to get my receipt, and they still had me checked in two weeks later and charging my credit card. So it's probably safe to assume that housekeeping still hadn't visited my room after I left (4 weeks).

The new on site manager (who just celebrated her 1 year anniversary at this hotel) has turned this hotel around. Much better than it had been before. Our company stays here upwards off 100 room/nights per year most years and we are happy to see the new faces!
Olivia has been the shining star of this hotel for several years and should be recognized for her efforts. She has worked hard to make us welcome and it's always nice to see her.
