“Convenient location, great features, a bargain”
Reviewed 5 May 2012

I had a 3 day weekend stay here just prior to them beginning renovations on April 23. Pretty much the standard Candlewood Suites (I've stayed at several) room features and interior features. The displays of the upcoming renovations look really nice. They're switching from the current light toned theme to a darker theme with more modern updates. The refrigerator, ice maker, microwave, utensils, and dish washer were quite handy. I also took advantage of the free washer and dryer for the first time. It was nice to return home with very little laundry to do!

I found the location very convenient. The room was quiet. I found the front desk personnel efficient and pleasant. I also liked the cupboard feature. For all 3 breakfasts I picked up a few items, reasonably priced, and enjoyed breakfast in my room. The complimentary coffee was a nice feature also. If back in the area I'd definitely stay here again.

When I was leaving they were launching the renovations big time. A large crew dropping off storage containers for the new furniture and removing the old, etc. The single elevator, with the renovation crew and housekeeping, was busy. Imagine it'll be a little noisy day time for a bit, you may want to inquire prior to making a reservation in the short term.

I will never stay at a Candlewood suites again! The staff were the most unwelcoming unfriendly and unaccomodating staff I have ever met. The manager needs to be fired. I caught her talking badly about my family. I am pretty sure all the staff failed their customer service class. The hotel is a dump. It hasn't been updated since the early 80s. I highly recommend staying on a park bench over this mess.

The Exterior is like other Candlewood Suites, however, the interior is another story. The owners need to update the facilities including carpeting and televisions. Could be cleaner.

While okay for a night or two I would recommend looking for another location to stay for an extended stay.

We stayed at this hotel for only one night, for an early morning flight out of St. Pete Airport, which is 2 miles away. We had one queen bed, which sleep well. I loved the little kitchen, stove, sink, microwave, big fridge, with all dishes. i wish I had stayed longer to use it! Also, they had two nice gas grills by the pool for you to use. This hotel also had FREE laundry, with a lot of machines, a nice exercise area. They also have microwave dinners, candy, drinks for you to purchase, and at good prices too. Free DVD movies to check out also. We went to the pool, which they provide you towels. I will be going back to this hotel, every time, I need a hotel in St. Pete.

Arrived at hotel and waited in the lobby for 45 minutes before someone showed up to check us in. Desk Clerk was not friendly. Got to our room, which I reserved weeks before, and it was a Studio suite and not the Suite with a separate bedroom . I went down to the front desk and explained that I had paid for a 1 bedroom suite and not the studio. The desk clerk could hardly looked up from what she was doing and said that I got what I paid for. I tried to explain that when I made the reservation I specifically spoke to the reseervation clerk regarding what I wanted for a room and he confirmed that there would be a separate bedroom and I paid more for it. She said no.....you got what you paid for! She was rude and did not seem to care. While at this hotel, I spoke to another guest and the same thing happened to her. I have stayed at Candlewood Suites in other areas several times before, and have never had this problem. Horrible customer service!

We only stayed at this hotel for one night but had a pleasant surprise when we found we'd got a full kitchen in the room,cooker, dishwasher, fridge, microwave, dishes etc Good job really as it's not very near to any restaurants or anything, but an excellent overnight stay if you're travelling. We paid $60 for one night

Room Tip: Make sure you bring a take out or your own food when you stay here as there is absolutely nothing in...

Check in at 10pm &out at 9am. Pay under $90 for a clean room and a short stay is fine with me. I prefer not to have a kitchen. The sound of refrigerator thermostat turning motor on & off can wake you up. No outside noise- I was on ground flr. overlooking parking lot & never heard the cars outside the window as they left.
