“Better than I expected”
Reviewed 9 January 2012

We were surprised and pleased to find several amenities: the "store" in the lobby available 24 hours a day (pay on the honor system) was very useful; the free laundry services (several machines) in the same room with the exercise equipment; well equiped kitchenettes, with complimentary popcorn! In general excellent service, clean, a good night's sleep.

What surprised us was the regional(?) manager upbraiding the staff in front of guests. Reprimanding without cause even! Such a fool. It was very uncomfortable for us, especially when he said, nice and loud, "honor systems never work." Huh?

The finest extended stay hotel & suites hands down. Brand new property. Mgt & staff have superior customer service skills. Free hot dinner buffet & beer on WED. Laundry is FREE!! DVD players in all rooms. Have an outdoor grill/canopy, and the suites are FULLY equiped!! Pots/pans, elec stove, dishwasher, silverware, plates, cups, etc. Never had to buy anything. Gr8food pantry too. Really cater to the La Porte plant worker crowd & out-of-towners. Couldn't find ANYTHING wrong w/ this place. A real GEM. Everyone is so darn friendly!

I travel 80% of the year and I know hotels. Candlewood suites Laporte is hands down the best service and comfort available in Laporte Texas . I had switched hotels twice before discoveing them.
The staff is friendly, ALL OF THEM, All of the time. They have proven to be willing to help in anyway they can with a cheerful attitude. The weekly dinner they serve to all of the guests is a way to get to know the other, creating a feeling of comfort and safety.
I highly reccomend to each Trip Advisor member to show thier support of quality customer based behavior, reward Candlewood Suites with your business you will not be dissappointed.

My family and I traveled to La Porte to say goodbye to a beloved family member, and Candlewood made the whole stay less stressful. They realized that our family needed some time to gather after the funeral, and made the meeting room available to us. It made such a difference! Thank you.
