Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by VieraJim70 Nice hotel with comforts of home.
We enjoyed our recent stay at Candlewood Suites in Mt. Laurel, NJ. Our room was well appointed with a King sized bed in a separate room with its own flatscreen tv. The larger section contained a sofabed, another flatscreen, and a kitchen with a full sized refrigerator, including an icemaker. Other amenities included china, silverware, toaster, glassware, a coffee maker, and a large table, a computer desk, several lamps and sufficient electrical outlets. Finally there were 3 closets, two for closing and one for coats. Everything looked new and the beds were comfortable.
The staff were helpful and friendly.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by kdr20603 Incorrect room assignment
I reserved a studio suite handicap accessible queen room that according to your website, sleeps 4 people; however the room that was assigned to my spouse at check-in only slept 2 people. According to the chat representative, this room was supposed to have a sleeper sofa in addtion to the room. The only other seat in the room was the chair which unfortunately, my son had to sleep in because there was no other place for him to sleep. My husband checked out of the room before I was able to make my complaint and since we were headed back to MD, I was unable to make my complaint in person. This was a very uncomfortable room situation and since my husband did not know the specifics of the reservation, he did not make any complaints as well. Your room reservations should match the room descriptions on the website.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by penz2013 Very small
Room was very small. Staff never at the front desk always in a guest room next to front desk. Refrigerator and A/C was noisy. Toilet was not set properly to floor.
Common area was not clean, was told to put my own trash at end of hallway, I would have, however hallway trash was overflowing.
Carpet is frayed at the elevator on 3rd floor. Not a good experience overall.
Will probably not stay at CW again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Wetcarpet Price ok, but needs work
Was arriving late and tried to call to insure my room would be available. The manager on duty wasn't at the office, but carrying around a portable phone which obviously didn't work well and was cut off several times. Upon arrival, my room was available, but it took 10 minutes to check in with nobody in line ahead of me. Went to room and key didn't work. Went back to office and had to wait while he checked in someone else. Finally got another room, because the door lock was bad. Exiting through the north doors, the trash can outside was overflowing and trash bags laying on the sidewalk the entire stay. The 3rd day I noticed the carpet in my room was wet and notified the manager. She offered towels to keep my feet wet or another room, which hadn't been cleaned...
Have stayed here before and will possibly again, but there are several things that need to be addressed. Will priceline higher quality hotels until I notice changes.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lorelei Very nice stay, checking in was slow
Room was a good price, clean and the bed very nice. Would stay again. Front desk needs more than one person, I never saw more than one staff in my two day stay. People were nice and friendly. Did not use pantry, prices were high. Would recommend! Loved the storage shelves in the bathroom.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JBean33 Great Price, Great Value
You get a lot for what you pay. The area is nice. It is near expressways. I love that they allow pets for a small fee. They have a pet area behind the hotel. The kitchenette was a plus. The staff does not go out of their way to be friendly, but they are not rude either. I spotted a few hairs in the bathroom. However I have spot hairs at every single hotel I have ever been to from low cost to expensive. Keep in mind I am the type of person who brings sanitizer wipes to clean the rooms I stay at and I also bring my own bed sheets. Overall, great value for the price!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Charger11 Excellent Service overall Great
The staff was great. The value was wonderful. The cupboard was mostly empty on the weekend when my family could have used it. The room itself was clean. The floors in the whole building were stained and dirty. the Tile in the halls were not mopped while we were there for 5 days. Since maid service was not done but once a week, those that had children and animals put the smelly diapers and kitty litter in hall trash. The refrigerator in our room was as loud as a train and the ac was not much better. The weather was cool enough we just opened a window so no big deal. The only major complaint I have Is the laundry room. They have well over 200+ rooms with people living there, and they only have 6 large washers and 8 small dryers. it took 2 dryers for 1 load of wash. there was always at least a 2 hour wait at all times of the day and night.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by carmelmike Fine overall
Candlewood Suites is always good.
Just some minor issues with the room we stayed in (340) - the dishwasher had a leak coming from the pipe below the sink and we had to ask for dishwasher soaps which should have been provided. Also, it would be nice to get some extra silverware and plates instead of the standard issue of 2 of each item exactly.
There is also always an issue of congestion in the room as they put an armchair right next to the bed so there's no room to get out of bed.
But these are minor issues - the price was very reasonable and the place was convenient and quiet.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Albertapk Awesome place
I have stayed in many hotels and extended stays, this one was by far the best for the money-I research carefully online before I decide, and eventho I saw mixed reviews I felt this was the best for my needs-spacious rooms-great kitchen, great location-quiet area, I had a need to have study time, desk area spacious -staff went above and beyond to supply my needs, even a late check-out which I appreciated very much-staff at desk-perfect-mgr Roy-perfect-cleaning staff-eventho I did not need them, they were friendly and did rooms quietly and they smiled and acknowledged people The Cupboard section was always clean, free coffee, and it was great food items were plentiful if one needed to buy them . I will look for this chain when I travel and I do come to this area and yes, I will return to this place, thanks staff

I usually have nothing but positive feedback on this brand , this stay was not in that category. This was my choice over a Hilton property, in which I am. Diamond Member, to take advantage of bonus points for Candlewood.
The computer system went down when I arrived - I understand things just happen - so I patiently waited.
The first room I was given had a previous smoker, there was no way the cleaning staff could have missed the strong odor. I went down to the desk and was given another room , when I got off the elevator to go to my new room, I was surprised to see trash piled by the elevator, when I went down for the SECOND time due to my key not working; the young woman on duty was kind enough to walk me to my room to make sure I got in. The entire check in process was way too long after a long day.
The overall appearance of the halls and lobby appeared dirty.
I would not choose this location again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Anji I am going back again....
I went with a bias from other reviews. After staying a week I decided to come back for the next. And now that I am going back in to that area I have already booked for that week.
The only problem I had which was not the hotels fault at all, is that it seems people with loud kids show up on the weekend. Both Sundays I was there the family's and kids played and BBQ-ed loudly. But they left on the following Monday so it wasn't too bad.. If you want quiet quiet on the weekend don't stay on the grill end of the hotel.
The room was clean, stylish and my favorite I could make food in the kitchen. Near by is a Whole Foods and a little further is Wegmans!! Awesome for cooking and grilling...

I have used Candlewood for different stays, As always this Hotel has always been one of the best. The only thing missing is a breakfast. The people, service and room was just great. We really enjoy ourselves when we stay at these hotels. In addition to this one, I stayed at one next to the Syracuse NY Airport. The folks there where also very accommodating. When I was missed treated by the staff at the Holiday Inn, we had to make new plans at this hotel and they were just great. I will always seek the use of Candlewood. What a great group of folks. The only thing that could be better is that the floors need to be shampooed more often and a breakfast.

Great value for a very comfortable suite. Well equipped kitchen was very handy. I used the fitness room which had lots of equipment. Only problem we had was the directions say to turn off the main street at a restaurant that has closed, so we got lost arriving.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tice Straightforward and nice
In the past two weeks, I stayed at this property twice. Compared to other Candlewood properties this one is above average. Very efficient check-in/checkout...friendly and sincere service every time. I was upgraded both times, which was nice. The rooms were comfortable, spacious, quiet, and pitch dark if you use the light blocking curtains. The rooms were up-to date without any weird smells. The kitchenette is fully equipped. The bed is comfortable, but a selection of feather pillows would be nice. The cupboard has a nice selection (I noted a couple of organic products, which was nice but vast majority of cupboard items contained gluten. Overall, cupboards need improvement in all Candlewood suits). I did not use the gym or laundry. Plenty of parking in front of the hotel. I recommend the hotel to travelers.

Outside lights not working so parking lot very dark. This is a security concern. Room key did not work. I had to return to front desk twice (that's 3 trips down the hall) to get a working key. Very inconvenient. But hotel is clean and well priced for area

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Silversage Pretty Good Stay
I stayed at the Mt Laurel Candlewood Suites for 3 nights while visiting family in the area. I was satisfied with my visit. Enjoyed having the kitchen facilities (I only used the fridge and microwave). I would have cleaned the few glasses and eating utensils that I used, but I couldn't find any dishwasher detergent in the room. A previous guest must have burned popcorn or something in the microwave, because there was a slightly odd smell, but only noticed it when I would first enter the room after being out all day. The smell wasn't bad enough to ask to change rooms. Having the laundry facilities was great, and the kitchen cupboard had laundry detergent and dryer sheets to purchase. I didn't use the TV or the workout equipment. I would also suggest that the hotel pay more attention to the cleaning of the common areas in the hotel. Someone had spilled some laundry detergent on the floor of the elevator, and it was there for the 3 days that I stayed. It would have taken only a quick vacuuming to clean it up. Surely one of the housekeepers would have noticed it. Overall, I was satisfied with my stay and would consider staying here again when I'm back in the area.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ben1122 Like the workout room
I use this Candlewood occassionally and like some of the features. However, the problem I have is with the air conditioning units. The last time I stayed there, it wouldn't get cold. This time, it got relatively cold, but the setting to keep the fan running didn't work. I like to sleep with the sound of the fan running all night, so this was a problem.

This hotel clearly had been renovated recently but those rennovations did not take care of several key issues. First, the ceilings/floors are extremely thin. We could hear every move of the guests above us and that included their daily 3-5 am walk around the room routine that was so loud it woke our two sleeping children. Initially we thought the people above us were just heavy footed but then we heard people walking above us in the hallway. The room, although modernized in decor, reeked of smoke despite being a non-smoking room. The door locks were not operative much of the time. The list goes on. We asked to check out an hour late and we given an adamant no. When checkout time came housekeeping didn't come near our room even though we went ahead and took that extra hour. Bottom line--this hotel was renovated but is no where near the comfort and quality of a decent hotel.

Great value on a nice room with kitchen, bedroom and sleeper. Perfect for 3+ people. Nice to have a kitchen and large room. Very family-friendly. Downside is no pool, and you need to get clean towels at the desk. With an 11 year old we would definitely stay again. Highly recommend

I am a little annoyed at the desk staff. I have been charged an extra erroneous charge twice within a month. Yesterday's charge, I sent an email to the manager early this morning and she has yet to respond as to why or what the extra charge was. It is already 2:37pm. At this rate I will move to a different hotel...

The room was spacious, modern and clean. My family was pleased with the accomodations. They hardly ever stay in hotels. It was roomy enough for the 3 of us. The bedroom was separate from the kitchen and livingroom. The bathroom was good size. We felt comfortable. I would stay again if in that area. I was there for a funeral in Philadelphia.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CyberBMcD Worth every penny
We only stayed for a single night, but anyone who needs a place for an extended stay would be extremely comfortable at this Hotel.
Courtesy and customer service from the moment we arrived.
We were staying because we had a late night in Philly and wanted to have sleep and breakfast before heading home.
The day we left was Mother's Day and I was able to prepare a delicious Mother's Day breakfast for my wife in the kitchenette.
The bed was comfortable and the room was spotless.
Candlewood Suites was worth every penny we spent.
About the only con was being secluded in a Corporate center, but if you like peace and quiet it's well worth the few minutes to get to the local community.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Trailking You almost get what you pay for
I chose this property because I was traveling with my wife and 2 children and we needed a separate bedroom. Candlewood appeared to be the most affordable compared to similar properties in the area. Once we got there, the hotel was fairly clean, although our unit smelled like whatever ethnic food was cooked by a former tenant. The building was in slight disrepair but definitely better than many discount establishments. The unit came with 3 towels even though I specified there were 4 people when I reserved the room. When i asked for additional "towels", they gave me 1 towel. Also regarding towels - *per hotel policy* - they only change the towels out once a week unless you take the dirty items to the front desk to be replaced. Also, there is no free breakfast and no on-site bar. Consider this as part of the room cost as many other hotels include free breakfast and even free happy hour.
It wasn't a bad experience it just wasn't quite what I expected. We will travel to Mount Laurel again, but we will try another hotel the next time.
