Didnt make it inside. Parking lot is shared with retail center and bus stops. Showed up about 6pm to numerous people loitering. Not sure about location and since I was solo I left. It was probably fine. A couple blocks down are a few other hotels.

Hotel's Favourite
I read the reviews about the place being filthy. Not the case with our room when we checked in. We were greeted by "Heidi" at the front desk who was most pleasant. When we went into the room, we found it to be exceptionally clean. Everything worked including a great huge screen television as well as the ice maker in the refrigerator. Although we didn't bring our two dogs this trip, they have great rates for an extended stay for pets. Many hotels/motels claim to be "pet friendly" only to "soak you" on pricing for your pets. The front desk was always friendly and greeted us with a warm smile. The bed was comfortable, and we were able to fix dinner several nights in the room. An added perk to staying here is that they provide "FREE" washers and dryers for your clothes. We have traveled the world over, staying in some mighty fine hotels, and I would rate this one week stay as right at the top. We will be back!

Haven't stayed at at Simply hotel before and absolutely love this hotel chain! Rooms are very big and offer full fridges, traveling for business for 2 weeks at a time, this was a nice change. Even better, they offered free laundry washer/dryers- so I didn't go home with a ton of dirty laundry. Staff was so friendly and accommodating, even gave me directions and suggestions to some local restaurants.

The hotel itself has a kitchenette, a separate bedroom, and a pullout sofa bed, which is good. I opted for this place because of the separate bedroom. However, there are dead roaches everywhere. It's also in great need of a makeover!

We literally had roaches in our room. When we asked for our money back they said “sorry, you booked through Expedia so we can’t help you.” I’ve booked hundreds of hotels rooms over the years for my occupation. This is by far the worse experience I’ve ever had. Look at the attached pictures and you will see this is the same tile on the bathroom floor and the same color countertops in the rooms. These pictures are not doctored up. Management has yet to contact me. Only advise I can give is “Book at your own risk!!!!”

Hi Exploration760125, Thank you for leaving feedback. It's our pleasure to host an IHG Rewards Club Spire Elite member. We promise our guests to enjoy the comforts of home, but I'm sorry that this didn't fully happen as pictured. I'm concerned that your stay was unsatisfactory due to the issues of cleanliness. I was alarmed to read about the stranger coming into your room. I'm sorry that you felt unsafe. Don't worry, I have shared this with management so we can better address these problems in the future. I have also sent you a private message to gather more details about your experience. I hope to have the pleasure to look after you again. Warmly, June A. Case Manager IHGService

This hotel was just okay and it takes quite a lot for me to give such a low rating. This is more of an extended stay type of place. Had a funny aroma throughout the hotel. Rooms were laid out nice but still small for a suite and it had a peculiar smell. Good location for Clearwater but that's about it. Would I stay here again. More than likely, No!

Hello BonnienClyde704, Thank you for sharing your feedback. Here at the Candlewood, we want our guests to enjoy the comforts of your home at a comfortable value. Based on your feedback, this does not seem to be the case. I apologize that the scent of the property and room was not to your liking and you found the size of your suite to be small. Your experience has been shared with the Management of the Hotel, specifically our housekeeping and front desk teams, so they can look into how we can further enhance our practices. On the other hand, it's great that you found the location of the property to be convenient. We want our guests to feel that the Candlewood suites as their home base while they are out traveling. Providing functionality and convenience in a relaxed and casual environment where you can truly feel free to make yourself at home. This is what we want you and our guests to experience when you come to visit us. I hope you will give us another chance to show you that your unsatisfactory stay was an exception.

Praise the Lord Jesus for this nice accommodation. It was a blessed experience. Karl, the manager at the front desk who checked me in was professional, thoughtful, friendly, and demonstrated solid customer service skills plus provided an upgrade for the membership level. Karl had a lot of hospitality leadership experience and was patient with me as I made multiple trips to desk (forgot toothpaste & toothbrush) and he simultaneously handled multiple guests and phone calls seemlessly without other hotel staff. I can tell God blessed him with superior people skills and God has been rewarding his hard work ethic as Karl was handling front desk, housekeeping, accounting, and other areas seamlessly. Karl mentioned how he enjoys working with his boss, another hotel manager, and Karl said he enjoys working with his boss as a team. Karl also mentioned how this property is IHG owned so it has nice benefits for employees (better treatment than some franchises that don't always take care of employees.) Karl's comments confirm the Truth of the Bible when it comes to how we reap what we sow (get out what you put in) and all the blessings like the boss & benefits he is experiencing right now - Proverbs 22:29 KJV — Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men. God's Word is so True and awesome! The room was large, quiet, clean, and comfortable... even smelled new/clean like a Yankee Candle had been in the room and unlike overpowering cleaning agents. Hotel is pretty new, clean, no issues. Stayed in room 336. On a personal note, I almost drowned 5 times, almost was in 12+ car wrecks, had gun in my face, plus many other close calls with death BUT JESUS has been so merciful, patient, and loving toward me! I don't deserve it, still struggle at times and make mistakes but He has been changing me, helping me become a more loving, patient, peaceful person having experienced His Holy Spirit... the love, peace, and joy of Jesus is amazing! May you be blessed to know Him more and more, Jesus is amazing!
