Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Friendly staff Convenially located. Friednly staff. Roomy suite. Clean. Beds good be softer. August 11, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Nothing special Hotel and room are dated. Missed having a common area to meet other members of our party. Poor security visible at the hotel, though this part of Lincoln not likely a crime hotspot. August 5, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Service We had a block of rooms for our son's wedding. The hotel staff was so great is helping out with the rooms and special gifts we had for each guest. They made the experience so wonderful! It made the weekend so enjoyable knowing we didn't have to worry about the rooms! August 5, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Nice room Nice room and comfortable bed. Had a few minor issues, i.e. a burnt out light bulb and dust balls in the bathroom but these were taken care of immediately when brought to the attention of the front desk staff. Only major issue was we asked for another nightstand to be placed on one side of the bed for my husband's C-pap machine and we did not receive anything. Had to use the chair in the room. Other than that, we would stay here again. July 31, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Enjoyed our stay The staff was friendly and helpful; our room was well stocked with towels and bed linens. July 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Clean, spacious suites and friendly service Excellent night's sleep in a comfortably-appointed suite. Enjoyed a current DVD while relaxing in a huge, comfy armchair and enjoying popcorn from the suite's microwave. I could be at home in this suite much longer than the leisurely evening during a visit to my hometown of Lincoln, NE. July 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice clean hotel with great amenities and a very friendly staff My stays at the Candlewood Suites have always been great. I love the way your needs are anticipated and then met from the movies and books to borrow, the stock in the the grocery store. No problem ever with check in or check out. It was great. I fully recommend it to those looking for a great hotel with an affordable price. July 21, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Ideal kitchen I recently led a trip with my church youth group. My students enjoyed the accessibility to cook and dine in the comfort of their rooms. July 17, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Comfortable overnight stay We stopped here because it was a good value for our reward points. Having never stayed at a Candlewood Suites before, we were surprised at how nice our room was. We found the staff to be especially helpful in telling us about some local restaurants that offered a discount for meals. We would definitely stop here again. July 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great location and personable staff This is the best staffed Candlewood Suites I have experienced. I usually stay months at a time at various Candlewood's and enjoyed my stay in Lincoln mainly because of the friendly staff. July 6, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A Great PLACE to Recover from Surgery I needed a convenient and compact place to recover after a knee surgery. My recovery went well due to the convenience of this property to my Dr. and hospital. July 2, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Don't Stay Here If you like clouds of cigarette smoke and stained carpets, this is the place for you. Why in the world do these cheap motels allow smoking indoors????? June 30, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good stay Located in southeast Lincoln, right next to a bike trail that I used for my morning run. Rooms were clean and quiet. Staff was friendly. June 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by comfortable and convenient location The recliner in the room was a definite plus, that would encourage me to return. All amenities for a comfortable stay away from home are provided. The only negative feature was a strong odor of cigarette smoke in the hallway by the elevator. June 25, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CLEAN AND FRIENDLY NEEDED A PLACE WITH A FRIDGE. VERY CLEAN ROOM AND EMPLOYEES WERE VERY COURTEOUS. THE LOCATION WAS ALSO GOOD FOR US. June 24, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by good value It was a good value,. Motel was easy to find. Staff was excellent. Prefer places with breakfast for a quick start in the mornings but this was okay. June 17, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Clean and Affordable The hotel is clean and affordable. I stay in so many hotels that cleanliness and affordability is the only things that matter to me. June 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice suite The suite was clean and roomy. We enjoyed our stay and we were impressed with the nice kitchen! It had a full size fridge and freezer. Don't be afraid to bring food. The only annoyance was the placement of a chair with castors because you could not move it easily over the flooring. They have both laminate and carpet in the suite and the chairs could not be rearranged because of lack of space. They had a recliner on the other side of the desk/table so we could not move the chair but it kept getting stuck on the flooring. Oh well. Very nice room. June 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chose the right place to enjoy my vacation. I was happy with this room and hotel. I would definately stay again and when I travel I will look for this hotel. June 4, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great staff! The staff was very friendly and accommodating. I had multiple room reservations for my staff that was in town for work. Many hotels have difficulty keeping the reservations in order and confuse who should get checked in to which room. The hotel was very easy to work with and did everything I asked of them. I would definitely stay here again. April 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Staff Room was clean and comfortable. The one thing that was outstanding was the friendliness of the staff. Not one seemed to be just doing a job, they went above and beyond to anticipate my needs and explaining how to navigate Lincoln. Highly recommend. April 17, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Average place to stay. Disappointed that ice maker took about 6 hours to make enough ice to use and there are no ice machines. Not enough utensils, dishes or glasses (only 2 each). We were there 3 nights so we had to keep doing dishes. Clock radio didn't work. Bed was very comfortable and room was clean. March 21, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by January Stay Always enjoy staying here due to friendly staff, running routes nearby, Fitness place across the street, and many places to eat nearby. February 3, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not a very good experienve. Not a king bed. Room was built for a king, but a queen was used, and only one end table. In the 'Cupboard' there was no orange juice for 2 days. How can you not have orange juice? The main hall way remodeling was not cleaned up, and sheet rock scraps left all over the place, as well as sheet rock dust. December 31, 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Beware of 'Upgrade' We recently stayed two nights at hotel we were suppose to have 2 beds and a pull out sleeper for our family including children. We were 'upgraded' to a room with one bed and a sleeper that tilted downward into couch. Although the one bed was comfortable be cautious of upgrades my children fought and were uncomfortable. No other options existed since there was a football game in town. We were visiting sick family not a holiday so would have been nice to have what we reserved. December 4, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good experience-would stay again We had a great experience at the Candlewood Suites. The room was spacious and full of amenities. It was Thanksgiving weekend and the staff was so friendly and helpful from getting us a rollaway to providing extra towels. I especially like the free laundry facilities and the honor system 24 hour store. The location was very convenient for us as well. December 2, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Like the kitchette The time i stayed before the room was a little nicer but still nice . Our blow dryer didnt work but a woman from housekeeping brought up a brand new one still in the box . Very nice woman friendly and helpful. Didnt care for the pillows , also asked for a top floor room but they may have been booked already . Overall decent stay the staff was friendly which is most important to me. November 19, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by gv46 we were in town to visit my dad in the hospital. unfortunately, he left us several days later. your hotel and staff made it much easier to get through this sad time. November 17, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Customer Service I loved everything about this hotel. Gabrielle, Mitch, Mark and Larry made me feel like home, they made everything possible to make me comfortable and happy. You have a great staff. November 11, 2013
