Met the needs for the price, room was clean and nice, staff was friendly, room was quiet, surprisingly, forgot that extended stays are sometimes used as apartments. But overall, nice stay. Would recommend for a nice place to rest your head. Close to a lot of restaurants.

We were held hostage by the softball association because this was a stay to play event, and we had to stay at this hotel. They HOSED our group on our rates! We paid more for those crappy, dirty rooms than they charge at any other time. Not to mention there are virtually ZERO amenities. No breakfast, wifi doesn't work, and...

Traveling though the area and stopped here for the night. Nice property and staff was very nice. The hotel has some age and i think the room furniture could use some updating has wear. It is nice as always to have the option to make a quick bite to eat without going out.

Great hotel for business trips. The staff are friendly, the property is centrally located to several locations in the Lake County and surrounding areas and, more importantly, the hotel is quiet and clean.

I thought this was a brand new facility but when I asked how new I was told it was six years old. Impressive; this speaks to the quality of the maintenance of this hotel. It was fresh, clean, and had all the amenities. If traveling through this area I would be pleased to stay there again.

Booked the better part of a week at the Candlewood Suites by my company. The rooms are real suites--refrigerator and cooking facilities. It was good enough and probably chosen for price. Although the room was listed as non-smoking, it smelled of smoke. In addition, because other rooms had cooking facilities, the halls smelled of various fried foods. It felt like...

I stayed in the hotel for 7 nights. The hotel was nicely furnished. The amenities were great. The walls are paper thin. You can hear everything around you. The guests of a few other rooms were extremely noisy. At one point they were engaged in a fist fight in the room across the hall. I called the front desk several...

Check in was great, after a long ride to get here (hours) in some pretty rough traffic, all I wanted to do was relax. I got to my room to find the window wide open and the room temp matched the outside air temp of 42 degrees. The heat was not on in the room, yet. The room became comfy...
