I stayed at Candlewood for two nights at the beginning of the month. The room was clean and spacious. Only down side was the guest across the hall kept slamming the door and it appeared there was not much of a sound barrier. When I went to check out the attendant asked if I stayed two nights which I agreed....

I stayed at this hotel for a last minute trip to South Bend. The hotel is a long walk from the main airport along a major road through town. With a few eateries within walking distance, you will need a car. The room was large, clean, and consistent with other extended stay hotels. The staff was courteous and asked about...

Stayed for 1 night and was pleased in all respects. The hotel is in good repair with current furnishings. Everywhere I went it was clean. The room was spacious with 2 king sized beds (room 315). Microwave, full size fridge wit freezer, dishwashing machine, business desk, roomy bathroom, and 42 inch flat screen tv. Wifi and cable.

This is a tired hotel and certainly not up to Candlewood's normal standards. Quite disappointed. Room smells and it is my second one. Carpets worn and the place just needs renovations to be done. I'll stick out but won't be returning here again.

Candlewood suites are not the luxury brand of IHG but they are possibly the best value. At ~&100/night for a big room with full size refrigerator, microwave, and dishes it's a great value if you have to stay any period of time for work. If you are on a budget with the family it's perfect. If you want a luxury...

Stayed 10/14-10/15 for a Notre Dame Football game. And like all hotels in the area the price tripled for game weekends. I won't rate it based on the $300 a night rate because it would fall far short. I view all hotel stays as a "bed to crash in" so I'm not too particular. The room was typical. I will...

I rated this property as average because for a 2 1/2-star property it really is not that much better than a 2 star. I have stayed in 2 other Candlewood suites in the last two months and both were superior to the one in South Bend. The layout seemed the same but the size of the room was smaller in...

Not the nicest hotel but it probably would have been acceptable if it weren't for the horrible smoke smell. This property is supposed to be smoke free but the room smelled terrible. I am assuming one of the rooms next to us had a smoker because the smoke smell would come and go. Decent for the price, the 3rd floor...

I booked through my business's travel agency, who has a contract with the chain. I arrived late at night and was initially given a room that smelled like cigarette smoke.

“Check the actual room before you carry all your bags to the room and settle. We were able switch rooms in the hotel with the same king bed because our preference on room location. Higher floors would have less noise, of course.”

“If you need something special call the management ahead to make sure it is held for you. If you are booking through one of the many booking sites rooms are taken first come, first served. We booked a two queen sized bed room but when we arrived we were told there were only king sized beds left. Two adults and two kids plus 7 hours of driving -- I want my own bed. We asked if there was any way to change this and management took over and did some fancy shuffling and we had a two bed room. Management and staff were very friendly and helpful.”
