    Hello GM

    I just what to say thank you to Miss Nelson
    Front Desk Associate. She had a Great attitude at 1:30 am, it really made me feel like I was in the right place for the night.
    The best part was as I was leaving today she was their and again and not only did she remember me, but left the impression that she hope to see me again.

    To a person that lives in hotels 5 nights a week this is very nice to see.

    Please let her know that she is doing a great job and give her a pat on the back from me.

    Worst Hotel Experience Ever!


    June 26, 2015

    This review is for the Candlewood Suites on 8812 University East Drive in Charlotte, NC. It is difficult to put into words my level of disappointment in this hotel experience. It was likely a bad sign when I walked into the room and heard the toilet running (with no one in the room). As I looked around the room, a visible layer of thick dust was apparent on the edges of the carpet, coupled with sprinkles of food on one side of the bed. A series of events occurred that left me with a less than favorable review (putting it mildly) of this hotel. I will recall one incident. As I attempted to retire for the evening, I checked the pillows. Underneath the pillows was a dirty wash cloth. While I was compensated for this terrible inconvenience, this does not excuse such a level of negligence. I selected this hotel because it is in the IHG family of hotels and there were no more rooms available at the Holiday Inn. I will never return to the Candlewood Suites in any city because of this horrific experience. I would recommend that a person read all reviews before taking the 4.2 stars at face value. I do not recommend this hotel under any circumstances.
