Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by RobbieH Not Bad Accodomodations for Business
I'll start with some positive things. This hotel is a bargain. It is so cheap you would really expect it to be filled with unsavory characters instead of subdued business travelers. The suite is set up for people who have work to do. The work desk had ample space for my two work laptops, printer, and other office supplies. The staff is very friendly and helpful. There are numerous DVDs at the front desk free to borrow if you have some downtime. The hotel has free laundry facilities. The closet in the suite is very large. There is a nice common area downstairs that is great for meeting with colleagues. Finally, the hotel is very close to many different restaurants.
For all of the positives, there is a reason why this hotel is so cheap. It has pretty good complimentary coffee but there is no free breakfast. The hotel suites could really use a renovation. Everything from the carpet to the furniture could stand to be replaced.
If you are only going to be working, sleeping, and would like to have a kitchenette to make quick meals, this place will do just fine. If you plan to spend a lot of downtime in your hotel room, you should probably find a hotel with more desirable rooms.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TANDA Racing Good location
We were in Topeka for a race at Heartland Park. The hotel was in a good location close to stores and restaurants.
The only negative was that someone before us either cooked curry or someone blessed the room with really nasty holy water. There were cross smears on a few of the walls and nothing would know the smell down.
Despite the negative the staff was very friendly and the room was clean.

nice place. stayed here before. good bargain. hopefully they get the leaky ac fixed so it doesn't leak all over the carpet. the smell wasn't pleasant, but we weren't staying long enough to request a new room.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by grouper487 Could be better but it'll do for a short stay
When I go to Topeka to visit family there I generally stay at Candlewood. I have 3 reasons I stay here:
* The price is reasonable
* Good location - shopping and food within minutes
* Kitchenettes are decently equipped
I have 4 reasons I'll stay across the street at the Holiday Inn Exp:
* You smell cigarette smoke as soon as you step out of the elevator
* The cable/satellite for TV is flaky (last stay it didn't work at all; guy at the front desk told me to "just bang on the side of the TV but if that didn't work he didn't know what else to have me do")
* No full, hot breakfast (yes, I know I can make my own but that's not the point here)
* Rather apathetic staff
On the last morning of my last stay I woke with a bad migraine. I knew there was no way I'd be able to check out on time so I let the front desk know. Did they care? Nope. They charged me for another full day even though I checked out around 2:45. Was the place full? Nope. Was it that big of a deal the room did not get cleaned that day? Nope again. I'm planning to talk to the IHG Rewards people to see what they say about this.

I have stayed at Candlewood Suites in other cities and I am a member of IHG Rewards. This was the best one I've stayed in so far.
