My wife and I were taking a trip to Savannah, GA (from South Florida) and didn't know where we'd stay for the night. A few hours before our arrival, we chose Candlewood Suites due to the affiliation with Holiday Inn (my wife's preferred hotel). The location was ideal due to the Interstate and our travel plans the next day. We... More

Hotel appears to be new. There is a small "store" near the front desk with several snacks, drinks, etc. Small appliances & board games available borrow. Room was very clean, full sized fridge, cook top & microwave. Glasses, a few utensils & a couple cooking pots in the cabinets. They use Glade plug-ins and the smell was overpowering, had to... More

This hotel was great, location couldn't have been better. Hotel in room amenities were good. Loved having extra seating options other than sitting on the bed. Kitchenette had a lot of useful dishes, pans, glasses, etc.

This is a very nice clean, comfortable and modern hotel. I stay at many hotels and this definitely gets my seal of approval. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Maria and Lawanda ( the supervisors ) at the front desk are true superstars. when it comes to helping guests and making you feel welcomed.

This is our second time staying here in 12 months; we stay here just prior to boarding a cruise for a week. We like it because they let us leave our vehicles here (by staying at least one night), and they are 'supposed to' arrange your transportation to / from the cruise terminal. Both times we have been told one... More

Had to stay here for a short time. Location is convenient to many things you may need. Grounds and rooms are kept clean. There is some maintenance issues that need to be addressed.

My room was big, spacious, and comfy. The staff were hardly ever seen unless you needed something. They kept the hotel spotless and quiet at all times. Wonderful place to stay for business or pleasure.
