Candlewood Suites Clearwater
Ranked #58 of 98 Hotels in Clearwater
Reviewed 14 August 2011

Had to stay a few days in the area and needed a good hotel with facilities. Candlewood Suites Clearwater is a bit older but the hotel was wonderfully clean, the people super nice, and good location for the area. I travel all over the world and this place was topnotch.

This hotel is just a short drive from the St. Pete airport. We got a great deal online for our 5 night stay here. No big frills, just a hotel room with a kitchenette, which is all we really needed since we wouldn't be spending alot of time at the hotel anyways. We could have spent alot more and stayed on the beach but it was only a 10-15 minute drive and this way we got to see more of the city.
One thing to be aware of is that they don't have daily maid service, so you won't be getting fresh towels and linens each day. That was no big deal to us.
If you are planning on spending a good amount of time in the room, they have free DVD's at the front desk that you can check out.
If you are a traveler on a budget or don't need alot of fancy amenities, this place will be a great place to stay.

oversold the hotel..after a very long trip from panama which included a 12 hour flight delay..my husband and i arrived in orlando..our reservations were booked at candlewood/clearwater which involved a lengthy drive..i had contacted the hotel earlier in the afternoon informing them of our delay and requesting a cancellation...i was told by mgmt. that there was no way they could refund our stay as it was booked thru orbitz..but that our room would be ready and waiting regardless of our time of arrival...we arrived at approx. 5 a.m. only to be told they were sold out????excuse me!!..our room was booked and paid for...by this time my husband and i had not slept in close to 30 hours!!.the desk clerk was rude and his attitude was ooops..we will refund you for your 2 day stay via orbitz as he said they could not refund us directly..we have yet too see this refund...warning..this hotel double dips..did not offer to pay for our stay/and find us another hotel...worst service we have encountered in our extensive travels..it should be illegal to sell a room that has been payed for by someone else!!..will avoid any candlewood properties as a result of this nightmare...

Me and my husband stayed at the Candlewood for an extended stay and loved it! The staff was great and the room we had was nice and clean. I loved the use of free washers and dryers. And the little snack shop was very convenient for a late night snack or ice cream.

We visit Clearwater every year for Phillies Spring Training and will NEVER stay here again! Awful. Rude. Run down.

When we arrived exhausted at 1 am, we were told the non-smoking room we reserved was not available, and the smoke smell in the smoking room was extremely strong. We opened the windows for ventilation, but the traffic kept the family awake all night. We stayed for three nights and a non-smoking room never became available. Also, most rooms only have one bed and there are NO COTS AVAILABLE. Our fourteen-year-old son slept on the dirty carpet. When we tried to correct the situation with management, they were unsympathetic, rude and made absolutely no effort to help - explaining that because cots were not mentioned on the website we should assume cots were not available. Nowhere on the site does it say "Candlewood Suites does not provide cots." This is definitely not a place for families or anyone looking for a good night's sleep. Stay away.
