Great Staycation

So glad I found this property. The property is new and has great amenities and a nice off-the-path location.

Decent stay


November 12, 2020

I would overall recommend this property. It is recently remodeled so it is fresh and clean. I was not crazy about my room layout, but I was there for one night. I did like that is connected to the Holiday Inn so you can go to their bar. The only issue I really had was that when I checked out the person at the front desk did not wear a mask, as well as a patron who was checking out in front of me, did not wear a mask as well. Take that for what you will.

Underwhelmed and Lacking


November 12, 2020


As this stay was in the middle of the Covid pandemic I knew there were some limited amenities such as no hot breakfast and using the pool by reservation only. I was not prepared, however, for there to be no comfort items and minimal hospitality. Upon check-in the front desk employee was friendly, however, he gave incorrect information regarding breakfast options and did not provide instructions on pool usage. The room was stale, fans should be kept running to improve air quality during the pandemic. The linens on the bed were very wrinkled and the conditioner bottle in the shower was empty, leading me to wonder how thorough the room had been cleaned after the last guest. I went to Walgreens and bought disinfectant wipes and spray to ensure things were properly wiped down. The hotel does not offer daily housekeeping and the responsibility was put on me the guest to hunt down a housekeeping employee to "exchange" my dirty towels for fresh ones. There is currently no hot breakfast, but I did not see an area where this could normally be served anyway. There was no continental breakfast options that would have been simple to provide such as prepackaged muffins, bagels, cereal, yogurt, etc. The hotel shares the pool with the connected Holiday Inn and is currently capped at a maximum of 20 guests at a time, but you are unable to make a reservation at this hotel, you have to walk over to the other hotel's lobby and wait in line to speak to someone. The pool is not close to sleeping quarters in this hotel so you feel paraded about while transiting to the pool. The beds were extremely firm and I had a very difficult time sleeping; in fact, my hips hurt the entire following day as we navigates multiple museums. The parking lot is situated far away from the front lobby, giving a perception that this hotel was an afterthought to the Holday Inn, and was inconvenient. For the daily rate the hotel charges I was extremely dissatisfied and disappointed.

Pleasant Surprise


November 10, 2020


This location is tucked away behind another hotel that I am familiar with, but I will never stay at the other location after staying at Candlewood. The staff was excellent! Everything was perfect! Best nights sleep at a hotel in years without paying an arm and a leg!

This hotel was suggested by my IHG Rep and I was pleasantly surprised!!
