I've never stayed somewhere so terrible that I've been prompted to write an online review, but people need to be warned about The Candlewood Suites in Lakewood, Colorado.
The entire hotel--even non-smoking rooms--stinks like an ashtray. I can not stress how terrible the odor was. The beds smell especially bad, and at first I thought it was just the sheets, so I requested new linens and changed them, but as I was putting on the fitted sheet (that's right--I changed the sheets because housekeeping only comes once a week) I realized the smell was not coming from the linens, but from the matress itself--and the couch--and the chair--and the carpet--and then I found the real problem, the smell was coming from the fan which blew smoky air constantly into our room (you can not turn it off). We smelled so badly by the time we checked out, we packed our clothes in garbage bags so the car wouldn't smell, and washed them as soon as we got home. They smelled like we had slept in a bar. The place looks nice from the outside, but even a smoker would hate the smell in this hotel. Don't stay, no matter how cheap the rate is. It's not worth it.
