Not clean and extremely minimally set up


May 28, 2023

Our room was not clean. I had to reach behind the bed and it was absolutely filthy. It looks like the other bed may not have been changed. It was made but messy, like someone had been sitting on it or something. The bathroom was old the ceiling was filthy. The supplies were absolutely minimal. I would not come back here. I love Holiday Inn expresses but not this particular candlewood suite.

At least the room was clean


May 21, 2023

The hotel is being remodeled, which is fine, but I don’t think guests should be charged the full rate when a majority of the common areas are trashed. There are tiles missing at the reception desk, the rear entrance door room key reader is broke, so the solution was to prop open the stairwell door with a rock and let anyone in and out as they please. The stairwell carpet was destroyed and there were cigarette butts on the floor. The room itself was clean. The shower in the bathroom though could use some work. So much limescale build up in the shower head that there was hardly any water pressure. The complimentary shampoo and conditioner in the shower had been refilled with water, instead of just being replaced. Our stay left a lot to be desired for the price we were paying

Needs improvement


May 15, 2023

I stayed because I had a mandatory virtual meeting and would usually be stuck in traffic at that time. I also wanted to catch up on some work. The internet was not accessible, there is currently no business center as the building is being renovated. No-smoking was not enforced so the second floor smelled of cigarettes. Extremely disappointed.

Old, people smoking in the rooms made the place smell. Unsafe in that someone kept propping open the back door with a rock. I will never stay here again.
