Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jadom Nice surprise
After seeing the lobby...looked like a grade school office...everything after that was a pleasant surprise.
I appreciated the size of the fridge and kitchen, and I loved the arrangement of the computer shelving and the bathroom shelving space. TV was sensibly located.
Heater/AC operation was a mystery, only blew cold at first, but something finally clicked on the second day and I got heat. Mild days anyway, so not actually a problem.
I have never stayed in one of these before, but I told my wife about it and the next time the two of us go on a trip, we will hope to stay in one.
The answer options above in some areas were so generic that I had no chance to mention I used points for the entire stay....Thanks.

Hotel was clean, well maintained. Staff (all of them) were very friendly and helpful. Wouldn't stay anywhere else in the Phoenix area. Hope to be back in November.

I flew into Phoenix to purchase a car. Stayed at the Candlewood Suites one night, but left at 3am, driving back to Baton Rouge, LA.
Really enjoyed my stay and received a very restful sleep, preparing for my 22 hours journey.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Stamp Dealer Clean, comfortable, and friendly
A great place to stay that is clean, comfortable, has friendly staff, and let's one relax. Management appears to maintain the property well. The rooms are clean, well kept, and not marred by any small nicks, scrapes, cuts, etc. that one often finds in a hotel room. The cupboard could use a few more choices for breakfast items. It's all the same-o-samo-o usual items, flavors, and types.
Only down side is the internet download speed is horrible. According to the staff, this is a problem that has generated many complaints and the hotel management or owners or someone is suppose to be fixing that. However, I have suspicion as no one could give me any details or completion date for this fix.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by burned in Tempe The Worst Candlewood Suites that I have ever visited
I do not understand how this hotel can function under the Candlewood Suites brand. Suites and common areas are filthy. Very disappointing.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cc-pc Spacious Clean Friendly
I enjoyed my stay at the Candlewood Suites in Tempe. I needed a place to stay while traveling with my little dog. The rest of my group was staying close by, but in a no-pets hotel. The on-line assistant referred me to this hotel and did a fantastic job with her selection. The room was spacious with an unexpected kitchen! The bed was comfortable with 4 pillows and the bathroom was well stocked, very clean and updated. I felt safe and could find and access my room easily. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I will look for Candlewood Suites in my future travels.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ftom67 Home away from home!!!!
I've always enjoyed my stay at the Candlewood Suites hotels. The hotel staff at Candlewood in Tempe, AZ always make me feel welcome from check in to check out and they are extremely hospitable and family-friendly to where it's like leaving my family members when I depart. The rooms are very much suited to all my traveling needs and more. I've never met such a friendly staff who seems to generally care about their customers/occupants. I would definitely recommend and stay at Candlewood-Tempe whenever I come to town. Thank you Veronica, Maria, Carla, Ester and everyone for a fantastic stay at your hotel!!!!!!!

Worst hotel experience ever. upon my arrival I was told that the room I reserved was not available. the desk clerk explained that the room I reserved had been given to another guest that did not even have a reservation. I was however given another room that I did not want. I travel for work and stay in hotels every week and can never remember this happening before.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BusinessTravelerToo Clean Hotel, Nice Staff. Good Value. Location Okay
This is a clean and secure property. Staff is very accommodating and friendly. Bed comfort is good, but not great. Room size is good. I spent 4 nights and did not have any problems. Location is not really close to downtown Tempe, but there is a large indoor shopping mall and cinemas practically next door. Grocery store, fast food outlets and gas stations all very close by. All in all I was very pleased and will stay here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Great 2nd home during move
My family and I were in the middle of moving to Phoenix when we had a hiccup with our household delivery. Luckily, this hotel was right around the corner, and provided a comfortable and safe place for us to stay while waiting for our furniture.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ckng Overall experience
Never previously stayed at this hotel. Very pleased with the room; layout, cleanliness. Check in/out was normal experience. Wish the room was larger to accommodate two loungers or a couch, although the desk chair was adequate to sit in while watching TV. If planning a vacation requiring a longer stay this is the way to go. Did not stay long enough to have an opinion on the staff services.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Dee6761 Great extended stay accommodations
My husband I have used Candlewood suites for years, but only for single night stays and have always liked the accommodations. During our move from NY to the Phoenix, AZ area it became necessary for us to utilize the extended stay (11 nights). The room was clean, pet friendly was a plus for us, the kitchen was a money saver, the laundry facilities were a huge convenience and the cost for our "lengthy" stay was very, very reasonable for all that is offered. The only thing they don't have is a business center. We had our laptops and had internet access, which was fine, but we needed to "print" a boarding pass. The front desk staff were very accommodating and printed it for us. Thank you to the staff at Candlewood Phoenix/Tempe for making our first "temporary home" in the area feel like home!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Whisper 1321 Pleasently Surprised
This is the first stay with Candlewood Suites since 2010 in the PHX area due to a bad experience.
Very happy with the staff and the accommodations.
Nice to be able to split up the family and have plenty of room. (Baby can take a nap, kids can watch video, adults can talk in the kitchen area at the same time)
We just had to do a little preparation and planning with regards to changing out the towels ourselves in the morning or getting swimming pool towels from the front desk.
The location is near a Wendy's and a McDonalds right across the street. A grocery store is about a half a mile down the street. I mention this because there is no "continental breakfast" but you could pick up something from the cupboard shop downstairs.
Highly recommend for a family stay.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Ruth D Urine In the Carpet (and carpet fresh too)
Thought I would save myself from sleeping on my a blow up mattress at my relatives so sprung for a room near by. Had my dog with me so I inquired if this facility accepts dogs. Yes they do. Opted for a studio but upon arrival and inspection of the room it was apparent that the maid didn't complete the bathroom cleaning as there was fecal on the underside of the commode seat, a wet wash cloth sitting on the bathroom counter and an open (used soap) on the counter. I called the office and they immediately switched me to another room. When I got to the second room I thought I smelled a hint of urine in the carpet and a heavy odor of a masking deodorizer, something like carpet fresh. All flowery smelling... YUCK! I decided not to go back to the office and complain again and stuck it out for the night. As I laid in bed, I realized that it was really smelly and gross. I do have an extremely sensitive sense of smell to the point that it is a curse, but still what my nose told me is that there was plenty of urine and this masking flowery stuff in the suite. Yes, the front desk moved me from a studio to a suite - but honestly a smaller NONE SMELLING room would have been wonderful!! My dog who never urinates inside was quite interested in all the smells she was picking up on - on the walls and in the carpet. I felt like I was staying in a litter box and therefore I will not stay here again.
What was suppose to make my life a bit easier that night, turned out to be a big nightmare as I did not sleep well with the urine odors.
Sorry for this bad review, but this is what I experienced.
To leave on a happier note I will say the bed was comfortable enough and the shower pressure was good.
(stayed here 12/24/13)

Went to Tempe (AZ) for a day. I found this place very comfortable and a most complete suite i could imagine ..... I have been to many hotels, but this one stands out in terms of privacy and comfort.
Will definitely visit this place again and would also recommend it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Putter19 Highly recommendable
This was my first but for sure not last stay at a Candlewood Suites. The friendliness and kindness of the staff, all of them very helpful any time - something I haven't seen often yet.
The rooms are great, with fully uitilsed kitchen, ready to use. Free washer/dryer for guests I haven't seen before and a mini market offering a wide selection of items on a very reasonable price. Apart from all that, the Hotel has a perfect location just on the corner of Arizona Mall and I-10.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by GGAZ Entire property smells heavily of cigarette smoke
When I made my reservation it was confirmed for non-smoking which is very important as I am allergic to cigarette smoke. When we arrived late night (too late to make a change to somewhere else with young children) they had us assigned to a smoking room and there was nothing else available on the property. Next day when I called the national customer service line it was discovered that, yes, my confirmation was for non-smoking but someone at the property itself had changed the reservation. Even if I had been given a non-smoking room we would have suffered from smelling the smoke everywhere. Will NOT stay there again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Diane1110 A great hotel w/ smoking rooms!
I always stay here when I'm visiting the Phoenix area. The rates are by far the best value for the money. Staff is always very friendly and accommodating. The mattresses should be replaced, as they seem to be well worn, but other than that, the room is always very clean, the full kitchen is a definite plus. It's also one of the few hotels that have smoking rooms. Because the smoking rooms are located on the entire upper floor, it doesn't bother those who don't smoke. I will always stay here - it meets all of my needs.
