    Pet fee is inflated and above charges at comparable Candlewood Suites


    February 16, 2020

    I was surprised by a pet fee of $75 a night. I have paid pet fees of $25 for first night and $15 for subsequent nights at corporately owned Candlewood Suites in other States. I was told that as a franchise owned Candlewood Suite Hotel the pet fees are whatever they decide to charge. The manager reduced the pet fee to $50 after I complained about this increase.
    In addition to the increased pet fee this Candlewood Suite facility did not have platform beds that block pets from going under beds. Most pet friendly hotels block pets fr crawling under beds. This prevents pets doing their business under beds and out of sight of cleaning staff. This also prevents pets from hiding under beds and getting stuck there.

    Overall great experience. Could be better in multiple ways. Parking lot is dirty, ran over a nail couple days ago and there is always trash. Bed is not very comfortable and but it was at first. Just very hard to get to sleep. AC stopped working. Everything else was great from the amenities offered, customer service, free meals on Tuesday.

    Great experience during my extended stay!


    February 09, 2020

    The staff and facilities at the Sumter Candlewood Suites were excellent during my four month stay with them! I was there for a 125 day TDY in support of AFCENT at Shaw Air Force Base, and I could not be happier with the professionalism of the staff, or the quality of the facility: room, laundry, workout room, pool, outdoor grilling area, common room, and ample free parking. The Candlewood was definitely my home away from home for four months, and I highly recommend it to anyone on an extended stay in the Sumter, SC area.
