Horrible Stay


September 22, 2021

No hot water
Non guest gathered in parking lot drinking alcohol
Bathroom door frame was broken
No extra blanket in closet
Front desk avoided issues obviously taught by leadership to avoid answering questions directly and don’t inform guest upon sign in that there is no hot water.

Comfortable bed and good value

Good location, very clean room and property. Stella Norman (the hotel general manager) is always available and present to make sure all your needs are addressed. It has been overall a very pleasant stay since June as we relocate to a new house under construction. Hotel parking lot and entrance needs visible security, especially during the evening.

Clean and comfortable

The room was clean and location convenient, but the parking area is lacking. Many front spaces were taken by neighboring hotel guests and parking lot did not seem big enough.

I like the design of all Candlewood Suites rooms and furniture. The large desk / table areas are especially nice, and this one was almost the length of the large studio room. I love the kitchenettes and was able to make dinner with fresh veg I brought with me, which was nice.
