Guest Reviews

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 65 reviewers.
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Furnishings worn out Good staff and location. Chairs, sofas, and carpet were worn out and need to be replaced. Coffee maker did not work. July 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent service with a smile The only negative about this hotel is that the mattresses are very hard. It would not stop me from staying at this establishment any time I'm in the Houston area. Excellent customer service, clean, and not far from shopping and restaurants. Really enjoyed our stay! June 30, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Three's a crowd! I have stayed at this property once and another Candlewood property once and both times I was given a room that was already occupied! This happened twice at the previous property. This is extremely embarrassing for both me and the other guest and I don't understand why the hotel doesn't know where and who are staying in their room's. Please train your desk personnel on the proper use of the booking software. June 24, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Bad experience, but not the worse. Were given smoking suite, because a "non-smoking" suite was "not available". The room smelled so strong of smoke, we couldn't stay in that room. "Miraculously", a non-smoking suite was available 5 minutes later!?? The room's phone NEVER worked the entire time we were there. It was supposed to have been fixed, but never was. I couldn't even call the front desk or get a wake-up call! If you don't like, or are sensitive to overhead lighting, you will not be thrilled at the fact that the "entire building" was wired so you had to have the overhead lights on for all lighting! The lamps and light fixtures were not separate. Bed was comfortable, but room was small. Liked the recliner in the living area, but A/C had a unit in the living area that had to be turned on with the main A/C, and blew cold air on anyone sitting on or near the couch. We had a very hard time, and were having to constantly get up and down, to adjust the A/C. The shuttle van, while very much appreciated, was difficult to get in and out of, as it was very high off the ground. The manager, Yvonne, did try to personally accommodate the guests, but in the end, the phone never worked, and we never got a lamp, a somewhat minor inconvenience, especially compared to the phone not working. Also, at check-out, Yvonne offered a few extras that were greatly appreciated. June 24, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Business trip Overall a good place to stay. Staff was nice and helpful. Laundry facilities were broke. Good value. Very clean. June 20, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Room, great location Complete at home services provided with ease comfort and pleasant professionalism June 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Medical Center nearby Nice hotel with no freeway noise. Easy to get to medical center and restaurants. Hotel has shuttle to the medical center M-F starting at 7 AM June 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome Staff Entire staff was very accomodating...Thet were helpful and understanding. anytime day or night the great service remained the same... June 6, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Try another hotel in the medical center Horrible. Will not stay at this location again. Arrived late, staff, not helpful at all. Had to change rooms at least three times in 24 hours May 31, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable bed and great hospitality by Yvonne Small I was in Houston for the OTC conference and spent 5 nights. Room was quite comfortable and I experienced a warm ambience. Very timely shuttle service and most importantly experienced home away from home. Special thanks to the warm front desk and especially the smiles and great hospitality by Yvonne Small. Will definitely recommend this hotel and for sure will stay in Candlewood for my next OTC . May 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Exceptional Personal Service Upon check-in, we immediately recognized the friendliness and warm hospitality extended to us (and our 2 Shi Tzu dogs) by the hotel staff. The room was spacious, clean, and temperature-controlled. Yvonne, the manager, went above and beyond in her efforts to insure that our stay was pleasant and comfortable, informing us of the shuttle service and times from the hotel to M.D. Anderson, and back. It was not until the next day, when we were at our son's house in Dallas, did we realize that we had left behind two large groups of hanging clothes in the hotel closet in Houston. The hotel had already tried to notify us, but had attempted to call our home phone. The end result was that Yvonne and her very kind staff, packed our clothes in a box, went immediately to the Fed Ex office, and we had our "left-behind" items within a couple of days. We always prefer Candlewood Suites (and other IHG hotels) because of their pet-friendly attitude, and always outstanding customer-oriented service. May 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Experience Candlewood @ Houston Medical Center was a great experience. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The grounds and the rooms were very neat and clean. I will definitely stay at Candlewood Houston Medical Center the next time I am in Houston. Thank you so much for making my stay enjoyable! April 29, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Candlewood suites We have been staying at Candlewood for about three years now and have never thought about staying anywhere else. This is our home away from home. April 18, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great place to stay This hotel is a great place to stay, we were involved in an event at the Reliant Arena, just a short drive away (5 minutes). This property is tucked back into the middle of a city block with a nice iron fence surrounding the outside. Felt very secure, and protected from outside traffic. Highly recommended, we will be back next year for the Stock Show. Thanks! March 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great hotel!! I highly recommend this hotel. It is very clean, has a great workout room and laundry facilities, and the staff is very friendly. The rooms are very clean and the kitchen is definitely a plus. The hotel is quiet, has plenty of parking, and is located near restaurants. March 20, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Non-smoking room Have stayed here on several occasions for medical visits to M. D. Anderson. Have had bad experience on last 2 visits. Called Feb. 16, 2014 to make reservations for a visit on March 10, 2014. I called the direct number and was transferred to the reservation service. Requested the 1 bedroom suite with separate bedroom and was told one was available, but was wheel chair access only.(which we did not need) Requested non-smoking also. Upon check in was given room 122(smoking room). The furnishing are very worn and need to be replaced. It appears the property is not maintained as well as it was a year ago. March 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very friendly The suite was very spacious, clean, and modern, but what impressed me the most was the kindness of the staff and the genuinely warm welcome. February 26, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great staff room needs some attention Staff were very friendly and went out of their way to be helpful. The chair in the living room needs to be replaced, the upholstery was very worn. Also the ventilation in the bedroom was poor, making the room really stuffy. February 26, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Comortable & Relaxing My first stay at a candlewood was a very pleasant surprise. The facilities were always very clean, and the staff always friendly and helpful. I will glady stay at candlewood again. February 15, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great Convenience Hotel was very good. Staff very friendly. The shuttle to MC was fantastic. Made life a lot less stressful during stay. January 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great service Had to have eye surgery at MD Anderson and stayed there for 8 days..the room was comfortable and the staff was very friendly... the girl at the front desk (cherie)was very compassionate and so nice...also the guys who drove the shuttle was very good...really liked Felix...maybe cause he was from Louisiana!!! would stay there again...Thanks guys for making our stay comfortable... December 19, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Stay!!! We had a wonderful stay at the Candlewood! My mother had surgery at MD Abderson and had to stay with you guys for a week. She said the rooms were great and she felt right at home. I stayed for two days and had a wonderful stay. The lady at the front desk (Chree) was wonderful and so nice to us. My mother will need to make several more trips to Houston over the next year and we will make every effort to put her in a room at the Candlewood. Thanks again for the great stay!! December 12, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The only place we'll stay for MD Anderson visits! My wife recently had a week of testing and appointments at MD Anderson. Our experience at Candlewood Suites Houston Medical Center made the stay pleasant and stress-free! The room was like having our own little 1-bedroom apartment with most all the comforts of home. The property was exceptionally quiet -- we were on the 4th floor and heard virtually no noise, which was so welcoming to come "home" from a long day at MD Anderson and just be able to relax, nap and rest. The free laundry area and fitness room were great bonuses! Large kitchen and bathroom. Having the bedroom off by itself was great -- my wife could rest while I watched television in the living room without disturbing her. Taco Bell, Whataburger, and Golden Corral right in the parking lot, if you don't feel like cooking. Huge pantry and large desk area separates the kitchen and living area. Staff was very friendly and quick to answer any questions. The shuttle to MDA is such a great service -- takes away a big stressor of having to drive and negotiate parking at the huge medical facility. All in all, it felt like staying in a small condo rather than a hotel. Can't say enough good things. Thank you, Candlewood Suites!! We will be back in February or March. December 1, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Pleasant extended stay Pleasant and reasonable, helpful staff, comfortable bed. Sofa not comfortable and toilet seat not steady, otherwise very pleased. November 29, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Room, General Appearance, Staff Room was clean and neat as was the entire hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful. November 26, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great bed and service The room was very clean and well kept. The bed is very comfortable. November 21, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Place to Stay I am currently undergoing treatment at MD Anderson, and have stayed at this Candlewood Suites several times. In fact they are the only place I will stay (either alone or with my family) when I go to Houston. The location is close to the medical center, the rooms are always clean and comfortable, and the staff is really helpful and courteous. I will continue to stay here. November 11, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent service! The staff was very helpful. I was pleasantly surprised of the room amenities. The proximity to the Texas Children's Hospital is very close and having the shuttle transportation is one less worry when we travel with my son for medical reasons. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone. October 21, 2013
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not great! I stay at IHG properties nation-wide and am a Platinum member. The experiece at this property was sub-par. Young guy at the desk took a long time to check me in - lots questions slowing things down like my phone number that is already in my Platinum profile, was I there for business, etc, etc. No breakfast included. Bathroom has lousy one bottle that was supposed to be both shampoo and conditioner. No hand lotion provided. Property smelled musty like it had sustained water damaged. Will not be back. October 18, 2013
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable Room - Service and internet could be much better I've stayed at this property several times over the past months and the room accommodations are good. I like having the kitchen area and the recliner. It would be nice to have a heavier blanket on the bed and a luggage rack for the suitcase. I always have to use the chair for a luggage rack which is very inconvenient. The area of most opportunity though is the staff. I asked 2 different people if the Golden Corral restaurant that is in their parking lot serves breakfast and no one knew. For a limited service property to not be able to answer questions about F&B options in the area is inexcusable. I asked on my last stay if they recycled and again was told "I don't know". The biggest issue I have with this last stay is with housekeeping. I left gym clothes hanging on the back of the bathroom door. I called later the same day, before a guest had entered that room and was told they hadn't been turned in and I should check back later. I called again 2 days later and wast told the same thing. It should be obvious to the manager that the housekeeper took the clothes. They weren't expensive but there is definitely a problem here. Today I called and asked for the GM to call me - 2 hrs. later no call. October 14, 2013
