My wife and I were in town for a college graduation and we had an overnight stay at Candlewood. We were impressed with the size of the room and how clean it was. The room featured a full size refrigerator and stove, and included all the kitchen utensils you need. While the T.V. was a little small, it was big...

The beds were very comfortable. This hotel also featured a laundry room, exercise room, and BBQ area. All were fully stocked and clean. Furthermore the staff...

Convenient location with good service. The cupboard is stocked full and management was always in there checking to make sure everything was fresh. The hotel is a bit outdated but I can see they are trying to make a difference. I did not like my room. It felt wet and damp all the time. The air is set on a...

The room was nice but a little small for a suite. It had everything we needed. I would stay there again. Employees were very friendly. The hotel was clean and didn't smell like dogs. It did need a bathroom trash can though.

We stayed here for graduation from San Marcos Academy. It was a perfect location for our event! It was close to the school and close to restaurants. Very clean with a kitchenette, great beds and a nice pool!

Excellent place to stay. Very clean with professional staff. Rooms have plenty of area. Our boys and our pet got comfortable in one ajoining space while my wife and I got settled. Mr. John Salazar, Director of Sales, was very responsive and accommodating. We will be back!!

I have never given a 2-star rating, and if you were to read my other reviews you'd know I am not one to rant. I try to be fair and give good feedback and travel info instead of just pointing out bad experiences. But we had issues at this Candlewood Suites. First, check in was a fiasco. We arrived around...

Large room with a full size fridge, stove top and microwave. No breakfast though. Probably better for longer stays. You could cook a simple meal in the room. Enough dishes to serve 4. TV is pretty small for the room size. Nice size desk that could double as a table.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel last Wed thru Saturday. We were very pleased with the stay. The room was clean and large so that my wife's mobility scooter could be in the room and not be an issue. The hotel does not offer a free breakfast but does have a mini kitchen with a full size refrigerator...

Loved the room. Very spacious. Loved the refrigerator, microwave, sink, coffee maker, stove top, and dishes. Loved the temperature control of my room on the 3rd floor. Easy check-in, friendly staff. Checked-in late and left early, so I did not have much time to wander around the hotel. Casually appeared to have a well stocked "convenience store" for snacks and...
