“Perfect in every way”
Reviewed 6 April 2014

One of our best stays ever. The staff was friendly and welcoming. The room was clean and new. The laundry was fantastically convenient and the value was terrific. We went to Sanibel Island so we were a little far away, but the price of Candlewood is so great, the drive to Sanibel was no problem at all. We highly recommend Candlewood.

We had just left a very unpleasant 4-day stay on the keys so we were hoping that our next hotel, the Candlewood Suites, will help us forget the misery of our last accomodations. The short story is that they completely bowled us over.

Upon entering the room (on the 1st floor near the front desk) we breathed deep sighs of relief when we saw how immaculately clean the room was. The layout was a bit unusual. The doorway entered onto a kitchen with full-sized fridge, full-sized sink (with garbage disposal), full-sized microwave oven, 2-burner electric stove, and full-sized dishwasher. All appliances looked good as new. The kitchen floor (and bathroom floor) were ceramic tile and very clean. At the end of the kitchen counter, forming kind of the short part of an "L," was a work table that had room for two chairs (facing each other) which was perfect for placing my laptop and charging gear. The Ethernet cable was here as well, although the hotel also provided wifi.

Wifi connected quickly and was the fastest we've had on the trip. I did have to re-enter the password about once a day but aside from that, it was seamless. The TV also worked fine with the HDMI from my laptop, so I was able to watch movies streamed from the laptop (at another hotel on this trip, the TV's HDMI port wouldn't recognize a signal from my laptop).

Speaking of movies, the room had a DVD player and at the front desk they offered a selection of DVD that you could borrow for free. There were about 500 or so movies available.

Another welcome freebie was the free use of the clothes washers and dryers.

They have a small outdoor pool but we didn't use it, so I don't know if it was warm or not.

The bedroom area of our room was carpeted but it was very clean (I'm the kind of person who brings a pair of flip-flops for wearing in hotel rooms and I didn't feel the need to use them here). Pillows weren't too bad, either. Not too tall or puffy so I was able to sleep without getting a kink in my neck.

There's not much to do around the neighbourhood...a car is pretty much a requisite. But that was fine with us. The main thing is that the room was very clean and had an abundance of features.

We started staying at this Candlewoods Suites location over three years ago. We have usually stayed for at least seven (7) days. We have come back each year because of the excellent service and value. the location affords easy access to most area activities and attractions. We'll definitely be back. We definitely recommend Candlewood Suites Hotels.

Great location for value if you plan to go to the beach. We had a two room suite for 8 nights and it was awesome to have the extra space. Kitchenette with bar area, couch and tv area plus separate bedroom. Free laundry is great for washing out the beach towels. Nothing around the hotel but we did everything at the beach anyway before nightly return. I would definitely recommend. We have stayed here three years in a row and will be back next year.

We had one night before heading to Sanibel Island. We wanted to check out Ft. Myers beach with staying on the beach and this is a perfect location. The receptionist upgraded our room and we didn't even ask for it. The room was great, spacious and clean. The bathroom was spacious but the toiletries were bare. Will stay here again if we were in the area again.

Stayed here for one night prior to getting our condo on Fort Myers Beach....an excellent quiet location.....with great staff & all the amenities needed for a one night or a one month stay.....for a long term stay it could be a reliable & comfortable location to sight see from......we booked months in advance and the price we got was excellent compared to the price advertised closer to our January 31/14 date.......definitely would stay here again!

Stayed again at Candlewood Suites in Ft. Myers FL. From the check in with Linda, to the check out,
We had a great time. We would recommend this hotel to everyone. Friendly staff and free
laundry. Close to the outlets and ball parks, and Sanibel island.

Room Tip: We always stay in the rear, don't know if the front rooms are noisy.
