Had a medical procedure at Health Park early am. Needed to get sleep and up early. No sleep most of night. Got up 4am and left for hospital. I'm sorry for this review but the timing was not good for this stay. The staff was great at check-in.

We would definitely return to stay there if we needed to. I would have any of my familystay there. Loved that it had a kitchen and big bathroom. It would save a family alot of money on not eating out.

Booked on IHG for 89$ (5000 pts bonus rate). Checked in and room was ready. As most Candlewood, they have suites with full efficiencies. I had a bachelor with a queen bed, full kitchen, work area, large LCD TV and DVD player. The room was a bit tired, but overall, in good shape. Average sized bathroom. Free wifi. There's loads...

Stayed for six nights. Everyone was helpful and polite. Pool was a little small, but we didn't really spend much time in it. Close to the beaches, Walmart and a CVS. Pool area has two gas grills, so we were able to eat most of our meals at the hotel. We will definitely be back.
