Rated 5,0 out of 5,0 by polkadots12 Great room at a competitive rate
We needed somewhere to stay for one night prior to our cruise and selected this hotel based on its convenient location, free airport shuttle, and competitive price when compared to other hotels in the same area with similarly good reviews.
Everything worked out really well for us. Our flight landed after 11PM. I called around 11:30 once we had our bags to request the shuttle and was told where to walk to and that it would come in 15 minutes. We actually ended up waiting 30 minutes, but when the shuttle did come it was a shared vehicle for multiple hotels that had already gathered many other passengers, so I can understand why it took longer than the hotel clerk estimated and it wasn't a problem. The shuttle stopped at a few of the other hotels before dropping us off.
Check-in was quick and easy - the night attendant, Tim I believe, was extremely friendly and helpful.
Our room was very clean, tastefully decorated, and sufficiently modern. We had 1 queen bed, a desk area with 2 comfortable chairs, a kitchen (which we didn't use, but included the basic necessities plus some clean towels/dish cloths were set out) a huge closet and a nice bathroom. The bathroom towels were very high quality for a hotel - very thick and soft. There was one small problem with the toilet where if you didn't lift the handle back up after flushing the water would run and run and run, but we figured out to lift up the handle so it didn't bother us after that.
The bed was very comfortable and we never heard any hallway noise, and were not ever bothered by sounds from above/below/either side.
Since the rooms all feature kitchens, this hotel does not offer free breakfast. I overheard another guest grumble about this in the morning when we checked out but it was not a problem for us as we were about to board a cruise ship with food everywhere. We did not use the gym or laundry facility but I looked at both and they were easily accessible and well-maintained.
In the morning we hired a taxi to take us to the cruise port. This was an extremely easy process. All we had to do was pick up the phone in our room, push the button labeled "taxi" and state our name, and a taxi was immediately dispatched to get us without us ever having to verify the location of the hotel or anything.
I would absolutely stay here again for any future trips through Fort Lauderdale and I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Rated 5,0 out of 5,0 by Jirasela Better than expected!
I can't say enough about my stay. We arrived early-11 am- and were able to check in immediately. The front dest clerk was friendly and efficient. The rooms (we had two) were clean and a nice size. The laundry room had two washers and dryers, complementary no less! I was able to do all my laundry for free and go home with 4 suitcases of clean clothes! Lastly, we took the free shuttle at 5 am the next morning and the driver was prompt and friendly. I was very impressed and would stay again in a heartbeat. Thank you for excellent service.

Rated 2,0 out of 5,0 by JImbofer Not what i expected
First of all, bedroom had a musty smell, i opened a bag of coffee to freshen the room. Had a rental, asked the front desk if they had a shuttle, they said yes, left on every half hour. Took my car back to airport the nite of my last stay, so i did not have to fool with it. Asked the van driver how early he started, he said they picked up every hour on the hour, not the half. So i had a 6 am flight, had to get up at 3am, arrived at airport at 4:10, security did not open till 5:00.
Just frustrating, should have kept the car, could have gone over at 5:00, gotten another hour sleep.
Just not a good stay.

Very satisfied with room. It was super clean and kitchen an added plus. Only drawback was that there is no pool, but guests were allowed to use pool next door @ The Holiday Express. Shuttle was a benefit especially at 5 AM.

Rated 5,0 out of 5,0 by LauraJ100 An excellent experience!
Candlewood Suites, aside from the obvious great value and excellent accommodations, is truly a home away from home, or in our case, a four-month temporary home. The staff is so friendly and the amenities (like free washer and dryer and fully equipped kitchen) are the best we have experienced. We have stayed in several Candlewood Suites across the county and highly recommend them!

Rated 5,0 out of 5,0 by Easmo Our stay felt like home.
My wife and I travel considerably, and our stay at the Candlewood Suites was ranked as one the best hotels that we've ever stayed in. The staff went above and beyond their duties to make our groups stay a pleasant and comfortable one. The room in which we stayed in was large and the bed was really comfortable; and the added attraction was the full kitchen with utensils.We will definitely tell others about the Candlewood Suites; two thumbs up, and five stars. Thank you!! Bill and Makeda / 8-3-2013 / 8-11-2013.

Friendly and accommodating staff made this stay more than just a place to sleep. Had to extend the stay and front desk immediately accommodated even though a very busy weekend for the property.
