Clean Room and Comfortable Bed


May 24, 2023

I was a little disappointed with this hotel. I wasn't greeted as an IHG member like usual. The staff made me feel like I was a bother instead of the usual smile and cheerful greeting. It wasn't terrible but it wasn't great.

Great staff, dirty hotel


May 22, 2023

The staff was great. When I arrived to my room, however, the nightstand was dirty, as if it hadn’t been cleaned from the last occupant. Also, there were at least three roaches in my room. The ice machine was supposed to be on three separate floors, and there was only one on one floor, and it was dirty and so were the hallways. They were also out of everything as far as toiletries. They had no extra toothbrushes, soap, or shower caps

Not a 5 but close.


May 22, 2023


We love Candlewood suites but I have a couple complaints this time. First, got there at 6PM and we had an event to get to at 7:00. The hot water didn't work at first. I turned it all the way up, waited and finally I was like I don't have time for this so, I opted for a cold shower. While in this cold shower I was trying to hurry through, there was NO shampoo!!! Ugh. Now I had to yell for my husband to bring me some, LONGER IN COLD SHOWER. Finally by the time I was basically done, the water just then started to get hot.
Then... My husband always throws the blankets back to check for bed bugs, that's a deal breaker but we didn't see any, instead there was a huge dust web and spider living at the top of the bed. Luckily I don't have any visible bites so he must of not gotten hungry in the night but we both slept on the very edge of the other side of this quieen bed.
Just a bit more attentiveness to the cleanliness of the room.
We forgot our energy drinks in the refridge for the next day, so I hope someone enjoyed those and didn't toss.
Also it was suppose to be points and cash stay and I was charged only the cash price which was higher.

Fitting are coming off and not a good stay


May 18, 2023

We were not greeted being a loyal customer, but that was just the start. The hotel room's fitting are crumbling (coming out) and everything seemed old and worn out. The room had a sofa chair that had stains on it and that even after the complaint was not fixed or changed. The lamp-post had tons of rust, the bathroom bath panel was coming off! Overall disappointed for the first time with an IHG hotel - not a place that i would recommend to anyone.
