Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 25 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Helpful staff I made a mistake in the reservation but they were willing to work to correct it and make sure we had a place to stay. May 30, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Quick Overnight Stay, Was not what I reserved My wife and I planned to stay at this location, about one week before the actual day of arrival. We picked this location because it made the most sense for our itenerary. When I checked in, the lady at the desk was helpful and friendly. I asked if "this was a King Suite" and was told it wasn't, although my online reservation clearly stated it. I was told the only room with a king available was handicapped room. I do not like handicap equiped rooms, as I am able bodied and prefer rooms designed for abale bodied people, and handicapped rooms should be for those folks that need the ammenities. I discussed this with my wife, and we decided to take the king handi room...as I am too large for a queen bed. I am not sure why the consumer is given an option for a room type, pays for that room type, but is not given that room type when they arrive....I ask you is this an oversight or just a pure lack of management. I am usually not difficult, but after an 8 hour drive, I expect to recieve what i reserved. March 18, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by confortable A good clean and friendly place to stay. Close to most everything you will need December 29, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very nice Room was clean and comfortable. Amenities were excellent. December 4, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Hotel Best time I've had in years. Can't wait to return. November 4, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by First Time with Candlewood Much better than average motels! Did not rate cupboard with Bignets just 1 hour east in Covington! October 17, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice hotel We only stayed one night to go to an LSU football game. Easy to find hotel and not far from stadium. Prices were much more reasonable than other hotels closer to the stadium. The 2 queen suite was HUGE. Loved having the kitchenette. The bed was not the most comfortable but it did the job for one night. Only thing I didn't like was the inability to close the curtains. Some of us don't like the sunlight glaring in at 6am.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great service Friendly staff. Rooms clean & comfortable. Allowed me to be flexible with nights stayed. September 23, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nice. A+++ This was by far the nicest Candlewood I've ever stayed in. I've had sooooo many bad experiences with Candlewood which made me very hesitant to try then again. This stay was TOP NOTCH. I plan on staying there every time I stay in Baton Rouge. September 22, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Extremely friendly staff This was our second stay in this exact location. Just as the first time, our visit and stay was nothing less than excellent. The staff, from the front desk, maintanence, and cleaning staff were/are friendly and listen to your needs as well as a story you may share. Staying here is more like staying at a relatives house than it is a "hotel." The rooms are spacious and always clean. Ample parking for people pulling or not pulling a trailer. A quiet location close to the major highway and close to many local restaurants, shopping, and gas stations. I/we will continue to stay at this location in our future travels. August 29, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not clean The desk/island area was dirty upon arrival. The bathroom was not clean and the bed was not comfortable. Very unfortunate considering the price paid. August 25, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beyond Perfect! As a Rewards Club member, we frequently stay in ICH properties. We are RARELY disappointed; however, this particular Candlewood Suites was a special treat. The staff was excellent; the room was BEYOND perfect; and we received an upgrade that we did not even request. I would not only recommend this property, but we will stay here again!! August 12, 2013
