We spent the weekend at this hotel. Check-in was great, room was clean, bed comfy, and TV clear. We thoroughly enjoyed it and would go back. No hesitation about recommending to others. Hope your stay is as nice as ours.

I’ve always liked the Candlewood model; kitchenettes, good work space and better than average beds and linens. This property did not disappoint. Best of all, the folks working there were very accommodating and welcomes you with a smile. For a weary road warrior, it was a welcome respite.

We stopped here overnight and were pleased with the comfortable accommodations, super-friendly staff (Natanya especially), and clean room. I thought the hotel was brand new but it is about five years old. Rooms have kitchenettes, desks, etc. This would work for an overnight or an extended stay. No breakfast, but with a fridge, you can bring your own.

This is the 5th different Candlewood I've stayed at and it was great. Best stocked pantry of the 5 I've stayed at. First one that does light touches in the rooms everyday along with the weekly cleaning of the room. Awesome staff and very close to all the restaurants.
