When I began staying at Candlewood Suites, one of the claim to fame amenities was the cupboard where soda was 25 cents and everything was super reasonably priced. I went down for a snack while on
this trip and as stunned to find convenience store prices. So I went to Quick Trip--which was cheaper. It's not a major deal, and the laundry is still free, but it was nice when you knew you could count on CS for a cheap snack or drink without leaving the property. I was surprised to find this quietly changed--maybe ages ago. I just hadn't looked. But a snack sized bag of Cheetos that costs about $1 even at a convenience store was $2 here. I wasn't that hungry.
The rest of the stay was entirely consistent with CS and I would stay here again--with my own food. [Less]
