Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable bed and great service. Comfortable bed and great service.Ok, well, it's not exactly right in the middle, but it's so close you could toss a stone and have it land somewhere on the edge of the Old town square...and the view...well, we were lucky and got a gorgeous suite with a balcony that opened straight out onto surely what was on...straight down the charming narrow street... August 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Deposit and Ice maker When we check in the front desk ask for security deposit of $50.00 ,that never happen before at any other Candlewood Suite hotel I have stay with. When I check out they never give my security deposit back, front desk were saying will be credit back to the credit card. at that time I have used my cousin debit card and till today I have never seen that deposit anymore from the Hotel. The ice maker were missing inside the refrigerator. August 27, 2014

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AWESOME PLACE FOR AN AWESOME STAY The hotel was excellent. although the property is animal friendly, the hotel and surrounding vicinity was fresh and clean. animals were present, but there was a clean fresh scent. both me and my pup enjoyed our time there. we will be back.. August 19, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Value Great hotel for the money. just as nice as the Hilton on 17th. The only thing would change is the TV's. get bigger ones and more channels. Great value when you need a place to stay. I would recommend to all of my relation and friends. August 19, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Poor customer service After staying with the hotel, I called and asked for an invoice after the fifth time of calling i still never got my invoice. The customer service here is very poor and i wouldn't recommend stay here. Also in the room there was grease all over the floor in the kitchen. August 18, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Temp home This was a wonderful place to stay while my husband and I needed a place to stay for a couple of weeks. Staff was wonderful. August 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Comfort/value Great place for the value. Needed a place for a couple of weeks. August 5, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by A roll-away? Seriously? I made my reservation on line for a buddy and myself for the night before our fishing trip to Andros. When we arrived in the evening, we were told that our room had been trashed and they would give us a single with a roll-away and knock off $20. We were put in a wheel chair accessible room directly behind the office and then they wheeled in a shabby roll-away. No room to spread out our gear, lousy night sleep and a shower that was not appropriate. The office had my phone number, if the room that I ordered was not available, I should have been notified so that I could make other arrangements. July 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Hospitality and plenty of room Guest Service does a fantastic job and very polite. Plenty of room to unwind and relax. July 21, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 1/2 Day Stay My visit was very brief visit during the day because I arrived on a cruise ship early in the morning and was not flying out until 10:30 pm. I did not want to wait at the airport 12 hours and carry my luggage around therefore I reserved a room to rest at the Candlewood Suites for the day. Due to some confusion during my reservation the Manager Jose adjusted my rate to my satisfaction and I was well rested for my flight to the west coast. Thank you. July 3, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great service we appreciate the cooperation at arrival and helping us out with some problems we were having not related to the accomodation itself June 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by close to old heidelburg restaurant great place to stay and walking distance to the german restaurant. June 26, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Stay!!! Looking Forward to the Next One!! I felt that for the price not to expect too much but this hotel really exceeded my expectations. After the 14 hour drive from NC.....I really wanted somewhere comfortable to rest and this was perfect. Very clean, nice amenities and a kitchenette! That's always a plus. Only 3-4 miles from the beach. I will book my next visit there. I really enjoyed and the staff were very courteous. June 18, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by good location and value good overall experience; helpful and friendly staff; convenient location to business and commercial centers. Excellent acccessibility to I-95. June 18, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Pre-Cruise Stay with GREAT Staff Tim checked us in and helped with recommendations, etc. We were quite pleased with this hotel as it was our first time staying at this chain. Will stay again and recommend for others. June 17, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Service I really enjoyed my stay at Candlewood and would recommend them to your Hotel chain. I was very satisfied with the room June 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Great stay - as usual I have stayed here several times, great location, great staff, great experience every time. Keep up the great work June 11, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Slept in an Ashtray The room smelled like cigarettes and marijuana, which is completely unacceptable for a property that makes you sign on arrival that you will pay a fee of $150 if you smoke in the room. Plus, there was an ash tray in the kitchen. These are supposed to be non-smoking properties. We were traveling with a baby, and it was the most uncomfortable, unhealthy stay we could have had. The front desk staff that night offered us air freshener, stating there was no other room he could move us to. We have used Candlewood Suites all over the country and always look forward to a comfortable stay and restful sleep, but we will never go back to this property again. June 4, 2014
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Defecation in toilet and room smelled of smoke No, joke. Our room actually had unflushed defecation in toilet and stunk of smoke. The front desk person gave us another room and stated that the new house keeping staff doesn't speak English and it was probably them. I spent the entire night wondering what else the house cleaning staff had done to the other rooms. BAD IHG no more business from me. May 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kim C Overall good value, clean and friendly staff. Would definitely stay again. May 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great hotel/location Very clean and spacious rooms. Staff super friendly and helpful. Great for flying,cruising . Beach close by with great restaurants all over. February 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Highly Recomended Ever since new management the overall experience has been better which is why I would recommend a stay here at Candlewood. Convenient location, average price for a hotel stay, and staff Is great for the most part. Will be back again next time I'm in the fort Lauderdale area. February 1, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great place to stay We stayed several nights...before and after our cruise ....at the Candlewood and found the staff and the facility to be excellent. It's a great value....close to the airport and a short drive to downtown. We really appreciated the free laundry! The only thing we would have liked better is to have an outside, sunny sitting area, as the little gazebo is quite shady. January 20, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great service It was an amazing experience. Tanya, Jerry and the Manager were just absolutely great. Very helpful and knowledgeable. My needs were met and beyond. Can not wait to return. January 8, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Close to the airport If you are going to a cruise this a good please to stay January 5, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome manager Forgot my jacket and a shirt in the closet before leaving for my cruise. They held both of them until I came back 7 days later from my cruise to pick them up. Was very thak ful to the manager for handling this for me. January 3, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Good value While the hotel is nothing special, it provides a reasonable room at a convenient location at a good price. January 2, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Good value for the price -- friendly helpful staff Stayed here to be near the airport, plus it was one of the few (maybe only) I could find that had free 24x7 shuttle service to the airport -- with flight leaving at 6 a.m., most of the others didn't start up until too late. The staff was friendly and the room was spacious and pleasant. December 18, 2013
