Nice property. Staff is great. I'm not usually too big of a fan of candlewood suites, but this one is nice. You don't see the wear that can be seen at other extended stay properties. Great location near jordan creek.

We were planning on spending the night in Kansas City, but the extra time spent in LeClaire, IA and bad weather had us overnight in Des Moines instead. The Candlewood was just what we needed--a clean, comfortable room with plenty of space. It had a...More

There just wasn't anything too impressive about this hotel. Rooms were average, clean but nothing too fancy. Guy at front fest was friendly. Hotel lobby was quite outdated. I've stayed in nicer hotels for half the price.

Nope. All the rooms are designed for one traveler per room. My mom and I had rooms close to each other since we don't sleep in the same bed. One bed, one bathroom per suite, but nice and spacious rooms.
