6/10 Good

Our stay was okay. The toilet was not totally clean and we came back from being away all day and noone had made our bed nor did we have any clean towels for the next day. We called the front desk and they wanted us to carry down our dirty towels for new ones. Unacceptable as that is what we are paying for.

Most of the hotel staff was accommodating, I enjoyed the amenities such as the hot tub and pool. The gym is nice and the free laundry room is definitely a plus when you are traveling and need a longer stay. Any issues that we had as far as housekeeping they addressed it quickly.

4/10 Fair

Our accommodations were dirty, it was obvious the capets had not been vacuumed, towels were missing, had to ask multiple times for more towels, finally had to go get. Bathroom condimentss were missing: shower cap, .check out was ridiculous. Needed to leave early, front counter agent told us to use They.tpld to contact front desk. Very poor front desk knowledge of needing to change departure date. Would not do the change at the hotel. Expedia told us hotel clerk should have done. We will never at Candlewood Suites again. Nasty, dirty hotel, with very poor room service(not cleaned or fully equiped with linens. Beds looked like house keeping remade beds using prior sheets. Had to make 3 trips to front desk to get towels, extra chair that should have been in room. Under bed closest to window, it was flity, and so gross. I would NOT recommend this hotel!!!!!
