When I think of the word "Suite" I do not think of extended stay as well. Unless I missed something, I did not know that this hotel was an extended stay hotel. When I walked into the front door, I was a little taken aback because of the lobby. It was not spacious and open as other hotel lobbies are...

Stayed in this hotel for a month when I visited the place on a business trip. One of the best things which is not mentioned here is that the hotel has a free shuttle service to all nearby business parks.. The shuttle driver Cory is excellent and helpful... They have pre defined slots for pick up and drops and also...

We enjoyed our stay for 8 nights. Can't beat the free washer and dryer. Staff was super accommodating and always greeted while coming and going. The complete layout of the room and espelcially the kitchen with full size refrigerator made it feel cozy. The only drawback is that the walls are paper thin to where you can hear the next...

I travel to Waukegan for work a couple of times a year, and I normally stay at Springhill Suites or the Courtyard; however those 2 places were "out of policy" with my company for this week. Candlewood Suites showed up as an alternative, and I've driven past it many times, so I thought I'd give them a try. I'm glad...

This is a great value for the north suburban area of Chicago. Many of the options for the large chain hotels are double the price of this property. It is close to the big corporate offices. Nothing fancy, but it is clean and comfortable. Part of IHG.

I've stayed at this property many times in the past as my company is headquartered in Waukegan. I feel that the rooms, housekeeping and staff are not as good as they used to be. This time my room did not have a shower curtain and I did not realize this until I was already wet and in the shower.
