Great location in proximity to Texas State University. We were there for graduation, and were able to miss the main crowd coming in off I35. Rooms were clean. i35 is currently under construction. Our room faced the interstate, and to no fault of Candlewood, the noise was obvious all night. I would stay there again should I have need to...

Lots of room to stretch out! Everything you need from home from your kitchen except an oven. Other than that you can cook on the stove top or microwave. Includes dishwasher and full size fridge. You can also purchase at their "cupboard" in the lobby any basic items/food you may need. Outdoor Pool, workout/weight room, laundry, and pets are welcome....

This is one of the few hotels that actually understands the term "suite." Their suites are really suites, as apposed to one big room with a partial room divider. When you're traveling with adult children, you want and need that. Fairly new, very clean, with a large kitchen.

There was an entire kitchen with cooking utensils and free items to use downstairs. The pool was nice and the staff was friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay there again!!! The bathroom was spotless and pristine conditon as well,...

I was visiting a supplier in town, and the Candlewood Suites was conveniently located. The room was clean and well-organized. The bed was comfy. If I ever head that way again, I'll probably stay in a hotel that offers breakfast just because it's easier. That was the only downside though.

We really enjoyed our stay here at Candlewood Suites. Everyone we met was very friendly and quick to smile (even the man working behind the desk at the 2am greeted me with a warm smile when my dog insisted to go outside). Our check-in was quick and painless with John, who recommended a couple great restaurants and sights to see....

This is an extended stay hotel with kitchen and bedroom suite. I stayed here for a conference I attended at the University recently. It is centrally located to restaurants and the university. The hotel is clean and the staff helpful. The hotel does not have a restaurant on site but does have a convenience store that works on the honor...

The Hampton Inn was full so I tried this place and was surprised at how nice it was. I would stay here again, but 2 things bothered me. The sheets are somewhat rough, and the housekeeping lady on the 4th floor acted like I was asking for her left leg when asked for extra towels. That being said the front...

Attending a 3 day conference at the Conference Center attached to another hotel, I couldn't get in at the "host" hotel, however, I was fortunate to be able to get in at the Candlewood Suites in San Marcos. Just one exit north of the Conference Center and 2 exits north of a huge outlet shopping mall, the Candlewood was everything...
