Great property for families traveling to the area. Less than a mile from Illinois State University and located near restaurants and grocery stores. He rooms are spacious if you have to be inside but the amenities are good. The kitchen allows you to bypass the restaurants and grocery stores are nearby.

Stayed here for only 1 night on IHG reward points as the hotel was on a points discount so that it was only 5,000 IHG points for a free night (great value!). There's no free breakfast at Candlewood properties, which isn't a huge deal to me, but it's nice to have a room that is so spacious with a mini-kitchen...
