Candlewood was cool!


November 27, 2023

My Candlewood experience. The staff at the front desk were extremely polite and helpful. I was told if I needed anything to help with my father to ask. I requested an extra blanket and received a very puffy comforter, it was great! My only concern is that it is best to have individual soaps and shampoos, as opposed to large refillable bottles, safer I believe. Overall this was best stay in a long while!

Ok place to stay


October 29, 2023

Ok place but not fabulous. Arrived after check-in time & was told the room wasn't ready. Had to wait for a few minutes. Room had no shower curtain. Floors were sticky. Pillows were flat, to say the least.
