Most folks think a Candlewood Suites is the lower end of IHG. It is not, rather Candlweood Suites cater to a different guest, those that have extended stays. I was last at this property in SEP 2007
for five weeks when it had just opened. These properties typically have a large spacious bathroom and a kitchenette. This is an interior entrace property (just in case there are Candlewood Suites that have exterior).
They recently did a massive upgrade to all rooms. First let me say the beds are just awesome. If you are tired, you will find the beds here firm but soft and stable, not ones that sometimes move a bit. I would say just the beds alone that provide for sound and restful sleep make the stay worth it.
The kitchenette provides all you need to cook, wash dishes and a micro to nuke your left overs.
Bathroom is spacious, lots of hot water and just so much room to move around. As you get older, more room has become more important to me as it gives a greater sense of comfort.
All furniture is brand new, so is the TV and AC also appears to be new and very quiet.
The staff is marvelous. the front desk at the time I walked in was manned by a wonderful lady who remembered me from 2007. She made me feel like I had come home. Her initials M.B. and goes out of her way to ensure your initial experience is awesome. It was nice to chat with her and we both remembered how it was in 2007 and how this property has gotten even better. Hotel staff in particular the housekeeping wonderful, cheerful and quick to take care of your room when you are out visiting.
They have a nice little gym with a treadmill and three other cardio equipment, weights amongst other things that are fun to use. Inside the gym is a FREE laundry center. You just supply the detergent/fabric softener sheets.
Next to the property you have a restaurant as well as a convenience store for dinning and things you might need for your stay. South, just a block away is a nice mall and the property is only a few minutes away from Fort Huachuca, AZ, Tombstone and Bisbee as well as Kartchners caverns.
As a retiree, chose to property for the positive memories I had and have been reinforced by the improvements done to the property. I plan to come back many more times and recommend. [Less]
