Hallway was a little loud one morning but staff apologetic.
Staff left the pool open a little later for our 9 and 6 year old after "closing hours"

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by zebulon0622 Comfortable and great staff
My family and I stayed here for 1 1/2 weeks. The staff (all shifts) were very friendly and professional, and we were very comfortable throughout the entire stay. The Newport News/Yorktown location is ideal for longer stays since there are a lot of restaurants and shopping with in walking distance (as well as the movie theater across the street).
Additionally, I liked the informative white board in the lobby to keep guests informed of local events/weather. The night shift clerk provides daily trivia updates every morning. Little personal touches like that give me the impression that the staff instills a lot of pride in their day-to-day efforts. Thanks to the entire Candlewood staff.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by caphis Very poor experience, not worth the cost
No one told us when we checked in or at any point during the night we checked in that the hotel was undergoing renovations. We were given a room in between two rooms that were being renovated, and directly under another. We were woken up before 8am by hammering, sawing, and furniture being moved around. It was reminiscent of being in the middle of a hurricane.
Our experience was ruined, as we had a late night and intended to sleep in. Needless to say, that didn't happen, and even walking down the corridor by the room was impossible given the furniture and equipment in the way.
Such a terrible experience.

Warmly greeted when checking in for three night stay; room was ready and was pleasantly surprised upon entering room. Room was very cleaned and well supplied with necessities. Even though I was given a smoking room it was not too bad. Property was close to restaurants and stores and easily accessible to major highway. Hotel is being updated and will soon be totally nonsmoking. I will definitely stay here again and would gladly recommend this hotel to others!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Hoosier Traveler Smoking, elevator
Make sure if you book a nonsmoking room that it is truly guaranteed and will be available no matter how late you arrive. In my case I booked a nonsmoking room but when I arrived at 1am only two smoking rooms were available to check in. I think the only way to truly guarantee a nonsmoking room is to only stay at properties that are 100% nonsmoking.
The elevator broke after I arrived and remained broke through my 3 days stay. If you cannot use stairs my suggestion is to either stay at a property with one floor or if they have elevators make sure they have more than one. In my case they only had one elevator serving three floors and it broke within 10 minutes of my arrival.

During my stay at your location, i was very comfortable and the staff was extremely nice. The only thing I would change about your hotel I'd replace new towels daily.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by alicia_g1 Bad construction experience
This hotel was under going renovations. I probably wouldn't have minded if I had know ahead of time but we had been traveling for 23 hours and renovation noise was not a pleasant surprise. This hotel has no ice machine on the premises. That is a huge negative for me.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Randy 357 Uneven cooling made room very hot or very cold
Had some problems with AC on Sat. No one to fix till Monday. Rigged to not shut off. Helped, but still very bad air flow in room. Very strong smoke smell throughout all hallways. Very unacceptable smoke smell everywhere. They put air sanitizers in all halls, but still bad smell. Staff sprayed hallway near our room, helped but seemed overall very dingy and 2nd rate..

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jay05 Comfortable Hotel to stay in
The room is updated and is very clean. The airconditioning comfort is excellent which is the very first thing we consider when choosing a hotel. I just don't understand why this hotel is more pricey than the Candlewood suite at Virginia Beach we stayed in the previous days.

There was nothing special about the property, it would have been a little more comfortable if it was a King size bed with the option for hypo-allergenic pillows that are a little more firmer.

Can't say enough good stuff about this place and the staff! I stay here often while doing contract work on Fort Eustis - Always clean, awesome staff, and the location is great as well (near a movie theater, restaurants, grocery store, starbucks, etc. - Been like a home away from home!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nicole S. I was so impressed!
I am so glad you sent me this opportunity to write a review - I was going to send your company one anyway!
I had an EXCELLENT experience at the Candlewood Suites in Yorktown 12/28-30/2013. All of your staff were extremely courteous and helpful. The room was very clean (this coming from someone who used to be a Housekeeping Manager at a hotel . . and I'm very picky!). The entire atmosphere was very pleasant and welcoming. You accepted my elderly dog for a very reasonable charge and had a dog-walking area with clean-up bags and trash receptacle.
Basically, the reason I wanted to write this review in the first place is that it is soooo rare to find pleasant, competent people and a well-equipped establishment these days. I had no expectations coming in but was surprised and delighted with my stay. I dealt with both your daytime and nightime staff and was well-taken care of. One of your staff even helped me carry my dog to my car. I had a bad arm which he recognized right away and offered to help me with loading my car.
All in all, I give your staff and establishment huge kudos. Also, whoever manages this site, I give kudos to as well - for staff is only as good as their management and the core company values.
Thank you for making my trip to Yorktown so pleasant. I'd be happy to provide more detail if needed. Please do me a favor and make sure this review makes it into the personnel files of all employees who were working during my stay, including housekeeping, as they were pleasant to talk to and payed special attention to my elderly dog.

This was our second stay at this Candlewood Suites. It's been an excellent place to stay on both visits. I understand it changed under ownership the day we checked out, and it's my hope that they will continue making this an excellent place to stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HappyPatron Great place to stay!
The Candlewood Suites truly feels like your home away from home. From the first time I spoke to Frank in reception to make special arrangements for our stay, I knew this place was different. The friendly staff truly go out of their way to be helpful in every way. I was impressed by the value, comfort cleanliness and layout of the rooms, the amenities provided include a free weekly guest appreciation dinner (where do you ever get something like that?) use of washers and dryers, gym, BBQ, picnic area pool and DVD library--all complimentary with your stay! There is a Candlewood Cupboard where you can purchase, for very reasonable prices, food drinks toiletries and many other items. The location is fantastic. It is quiet and right next to a pretty lake where you can sit outside in the gazebo or patio area, BBQ or read and enjoy the view. It is also very close to many attractions, shopping areas and airport. This hotel and especially the staff, is awesome! I would HIGHLY recommend staying here.
