To start, the guy at the front desk was rude and seemed irritated when i checked in. Then i cleaned my room with a white towel and cleaning spary that the hotel provided. After wiping my kitchen floor and bathroom floor, my towel was comppetely black. It was absolutely disgusting. I have the picture to prove it. There was also a ton of flies flying and buzzing around my window ALL the time. The AC unit was loud, didnt work, and turned off and on ever 5 minutes so if your a light sleeper like me, it will wake you up every time it turns on and off. And this is the ONLY Candlewood suites ive ever stayed at in all my years of traveling, that a candlewood doesnt have a recliner, or a kitchen chair to sit at. All i had was a dirty old desk chair. When i asked if i could get something else, anything, the guy at the front seemed bothered and said "there arent any chairs" so then i asked to move to a room with more than 1 chair, the guy said all the rooms were full. Everything was bad about this place.

November 14, 2020

Extremely nice motel. very clean. room had a full size refrigerator, two burner stove, microwave, sink, dishwasher, pots, pans, silverware, dishes, just about everything you would expect in a normal kitchen. Much more than I expected for roughly 100 bucks a night. Would be really be a great place if you had small children. Beds were comfortable and bathroom was nice and clean

I was happy when I went into the room although they are remodeling the rooms there seems to be some older furniture but I was happy about the room. The room was clean and well stocked with all the essentials needed. Since my stay was for 5 days and I will be returning I will definitely stay here again..
