Bad experience....poor management....dirty room....bathroom stool lid broken....overall just a terrible experience prior to having a wonderful cruise on the Oasis of the Seas. It's time for the public to step up and expose these kind of flea bag rip off hotel/motels. Travel companies need to avoid placing their clients in lodging accommodations (like this one) that doesn't meet quality and cleanliness expectations/standards.

Stayed here for one night Feb 2013, the night before a cruise. We arrived early and the staff did everything they could to get us into our rooms as soon as possible. Front desk clerk even went, without us asking, to get us cold bottle of water. This property is nothing fancy, rooms are large and clean with a great full service kitchen. Across a busy street it a strip mall with both a grocery store, liquor market and a few fast food places to eat. Our airport shuttle was a bit of a wait but at this time of the year, with cruise season in full swing, that was to be expected. This hotel doesn't offer a continental breakfast, but for $5 we ate next door at the Holiday Inn. We paid over $220 for a night, which I felt was fairly expensive, but with a great location, close to both the airport and the cruse ship terminal came the bigger price tag. We thought we would save money and book 2 cabs as we were a party of 8, rather than catch the shuttle offered at $10 per person, but the cabs were unreliable. Despite calling and making arrangements the night before, only one cab showed up. Half our party was left behind and ended up catching the shuttle anyways. I would recommend paying the shuttle cost and save the headache of dealing with the cabs. I would definately stay at this hotel again, especially because of the friendly and helpful staff.

I overall had a great experience, my stay wasn't long but I'll definitely comeback whenever I'm in the area. Tomas Bermuda was a great help in locating my clothes after I checked out and forgot a couple of items.

I normally stay at the adjoining Holiday Inn (owned by the same people), but they were booked so I decided to try Candlewood.
The location is convenient to FLL and there is a free shuttle which starts running at 4 AM. The? rooms are fairly spacious and are equipped with a stove, microwave, sink, dishwasher and full size fridge. They also allow pets with a deposit.
The hotel doesn't have a restaurant or bar, but it is located across the street from a strip mall with places for pizza, chinese and thai. There is also a Subway, Wendy's and a McDonald's as well as a bar, a Laundromat and a supermarket.
The hotel was full of people spending a couple of days in Ft. Lauderdale before their cruise departed, but the rooms and common areas were clean and the staff was friendly and helpful.

I was a little disappointed with this hotel because the room I was given wasn't what I expected based on photos. But it was late and in fairness, they did offer another room type, but worse. The two beds included the sleeper sofa which was a pain to take out. The room's floor was sticky and the staff seemed put out as a few times they seem to have personal visitors, although it could have been bored guests needing someone to sit and talk to for a while. I was never acknowledged as a Priority Rewards member the whole stay and explained that on a survey I received after my stay. Someone from the hotel called and said they would pass this on and someone else would be contacting me. They didn't. At least the location was close to the airport and a shopping center across the street for necessities. I have stayed in other Candlewood Suites that were much better, that is why I was disappointed.

Room Tip: Make sure you understand what type of room you're getting beforehand.
