This hotel was one of the best deals in the area. Building upkeep was well and the hotel furnishings were very nice. The kitchen with stove, fridge, pots pans etc was a plus too. Bathroom was clean and shower pressure was terrific. I will definitely come back if I am in the area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by stillprofessional200 quiet, comfortable stay
We were pleasantly surprised at our first stay at a Candlewood Suites location. Amenities were sufficient in the studio and it felt larger and more comfortable than just a hotel room. Plus, the staff was extremely gracious and helpful.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CarolLK Great New Property
Candlewood Suites are great for business travelers that don't want to eat out every meal. Enables me to purchase groceries and continue healthy eating habits, and to also save time and money by avoiding restaurants.
Only negative is the "energy efficient" motion detection measures on the cooling unit may cause the unit to cut off while sleeping

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Barb W. Great option near Fort Meade!
I will definitely stay at this Candlewood Suites when visiting near Fort Meade! Very convenient. Very friendly and helpful staff. Adequate kitchen with essentials: colander, paper towels, dish detergent, Rubbermaid bowls/storage containers, great frying pan, pots and pans, etc. Even a crock pot if you wanted to borrow it. Loved having a gas grill with the little hangout spot. (Personally would have preferred if this was not a smoking area.) The beds were very comfortable. Very soft towels. Nice room layout. Liked having a window that opened besides the a/c. I used the exercise room every morning. This property is very accessible and I felt very safe coming and going, walking around. It was very convenient to the mall and grocery store. My son had surgery and came back to camp out there until we took him home, so we spent a LOT of time just at the hotel.

Typically this location is just fine. However, I came with my boyfriend and he just was not comfortable in the bed. I had to sleep in the chair and his legs hung over because he had to sleep diagonal to fit.

I stayed at this hotel for a couple of days and the folks were wonderful. I am 75 years old with a bad back, and Francis was great. He helped me carry my luggage to my car when I checked out. The hotel facility was excellent also and I recommend this property to everyone.

The rooms were spacious, accommodating for long visits. I would recommend this hotel to anyone, whether business or pleasure. Only downfall would be no pool. However, other ammenities made up for it!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by 2014Traveler Triple Check your Bill! Questionable Management!
Very nice, new hotel. Excellent location between Baltimore and DC by BWI airport. Management would not allow extending a 30+ day stay until significant fuss was created because they oversold rooms. Final bill overcharged by one day. 4 calls later and still not resolved. Management more concerned about defending their system than retaining long term customers at an extended stay hotel. Triple check your bill at checkout. Question and confirm all details. This is service? I DO NOT recommend this hotel based on these experiences. Even the checkout date automatically entered on this form is wrong...

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by smitty62479 Could Have Been Better
The shuttle driver was not too enthused about taking us to and from destinations and the front desk worker was too busy watching Tru TV and those profanity laced shows to care. Also be specific about your room preference because they will get an attitude if you request a change.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jeannette1979 Poor customer service/rude
Mike was very rude. He was rude upon check in and would not look up my IHG number, said it would take him at least 30 minutes to sort through all the people with my same name. I have a very uncommon name. That night I called to report a clogged drain and instead of talking to me about that, he just wanted to tell me my dog barked the whole time we were at dinner. Though the dog was not barking when we left or returned. He did not address the issue with the drain and was just very accusing. The next day we reported the issue to the guy at the desk, great guy and he said he knew nothing about our call the night before. No one reported the drain issue. He got it fixed. Then when Mike returned, mysteriously our dog was barking again, He had a manager go up there, the manager finally admitted it wasn't barking, but crying. That made more sense. The manager then told me if we had another issue we would have to leave. At this point I still had not heard the dog make a single noise upon coming and going. I asked my husband to go speak to the manager. When he did, the manager (Francis) said we had to leave! My husband said "wait a second, you just told my wife on the phone that if we have one more dog 'incident' we would have to leave, now you are trying to make us leave?" Then the manager said, oh well yeah, you can stay I guess. What is wrong with these people? We are moving to the area, waiting on our home. We spent 7 days in a hotel where we left and the hotel thanked us for how well behaved and sweet our dog was. I've never had a complaint at a hotel about my dog. I really think this was all about the original rude guy Mike. I'm so disappointed and will never stay at a Candlewood Suites again. Never have I been treated in such a way. And if you are a hotel allows pets, it's crazy to think that they will never ever make a noise. I had a crying baby next to me, I bet that they wouldn't throw someone out for that, not that I would have complained about it. Noise comes with the territory. We ended up having to leave our oldest son at the hotel the whole last day to ensure the dog made no noise. We were only ever gone and hour or two at a time, but apparently that's not ok. Drop your pet policy if you continue to operate this way. I will only stay at a competing hotel from now on. So disappointed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sophie777 Great Value!
This was a great overall value. We stayed for 3 nights and very much enjoyed our stay. The shuttle driver who picked us up at the airport was friendly and so was the staff at checkin. The area is close to shopping and restaurants and the hotel was much nicer than expected. The rooms are new and modern.

This is hidden away from nearby attractions such as restaurants and shopping. Staff is friendly and helpful when available but rarely behind the desk. plan on waiting to check in or out. Not enough towels or small items in bathroom. Heat/air in room was noisy and thermostat was not accurate.

Had a problem with pricing. Left few messages for manager. He never got back to me and never corrected the problem. Finished my stay and came home but, issue still not resolved. That put a damper on an otherwise great stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Xavier's Grandparents Convenient, friendly, well designed room
Staff was friendly and helpful. Room was well designed to accommodate our 11 day stay. The small kitchen was perfect for breakfasts and small meals. We used the long counter as a desk and dining table. The suite is conveniently located near airport, shopping, freeway access, and our relatives. Last year our room faced the entry street, this year it faced the freeway which was much noisier. We will ask for a room on the street side next year.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Freddy49 Don't expect non-smoking
When I made my reservation as a non-smoking room the website said there were 4 non-smoking rooms available but when we checked we were give a smoking room and told the hotel was sold out so there was nothing they could do. Not an acceptable situation.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by NightsAwayFromHome Sleepless Nights
Stayed here for two nights. I came to get away from the hustle and bustle of a family life. Just to relax and rest. I specifically asked for a quiet part of the hotel which I was given...I thought. About 2 hours into my visit, I hear loud noises of babies crying, children running and playing in the hallway but since it's not late, I pay no attention to it.
While taking a shower, the phone rings so I call the front office and ask about the call but the lady is not aware of any call to my room. Then I tell her about the noise which is still going on in the hallway (by this time it's after 8pm# and she tells me she would talk to the people across the hallway.
Well, for two nights, I am forced to live with this noise. Very early in the morning when the father is leaving for work #I presume) talking to his wife and kids and during the day, then finally at night.
I loved the room though.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Thompson67 Better than Expected
The price was very good and the room was much better than expected, so I would recommend this property overall. The kitchen is quite functional and the candlewoproperty was very clean and very well maintained. The location was quiet and near stores and restaurants. It would be nice if the gym had free weights but otherwise the gym had a good mix of equipment.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by WeGotThis Nice Hotel but Understaffed
We arrived at Arundel Mills Candlewood Suites for a Valentine's Day weekend getaway. We waited in the lobby along with about 10 other unhappy guests about an hour after check in time before we could check into our room. We have stayed at this hotel several times. It is very clean and quiet location. They just need to have the staffing to get the rooms ready for the next guests.

I was very impressed by the decor and layout of the guestrooms at the hotel. It was very tasteful and functional. Staff was also pleasant and most importantly the hotel was very clean. Location was quite convenient to Fort Meade where I had to commute to daily. I will be staying here again in a few months when I am back in the area.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TonyaJ126 My Second Home Away From Home...
I always chose this hotel to stay at when I'm in Maryland. I love the kitchens in the suites and the hotel is quiet and clean. I know there have been references about stink bugs and I too have encountered 1 or 2. I realize this is not because of the cleanliness of the hotel. I've stayed at another hotel in Columbia, Md and it was the same thing. There is a certain time of the year these bugs make their way inside somehow. Aside from that, I love my stays here. If u compare the value to other hotels in the area you can't beat it. The hotel Manager Mr. Ortiz went out of his way to resolve a problem I had which shows great Customer Service.
