I just got back from a four day stay at Candlewood Suites in Boise. This was my first stay at any Candlewood suites hotel and I was impressed overall. Everything about the room and the building was as advertised and the rooms were very clean when I checked in.
The kitchen area had a full size refrigerator with an automatic ice cube maker. I learned to turn off the ice maker at night as when ice dropped into the tray it could be quite noisy. There was a full size microwave, not the usual small hotel size, and a two burner stove. There is NO oven though. The kitchen was supplied with four place settings, two pots, a teapot for the stove, a coffee maker, toaster, and a pitcher which I kept full of water and in the refrigerator.
Next there was an oversized desk/table with an office chair on one side and two dining chairs on the other side. This was perfect to eat at when I had breakfast or brought food back to the room. There were also internet connections and electrical outlets here but I did not use them so cannot comment on how well they worked.
In the living area there was a loveseat and leather recliner plus a very nice tv set. I like to lounge around reading or watching tv in the evening and I found the loveseat to be uncomfortable.
The bedroom was equipped with a comfy bed, a set of three drawers with a tv on top, and a small desk which is where I left my suitcase as I never really unpacked. The bedroom closet had a laundry basket for use as a place for dirty clothes or to carry your clothes to the onsite laundry. For some unknown reason the extra pillows and blankets were in the entryway closet and not in the bedroom closet. Bring hangars as I don't remember seeing any.
The bathroom was large and equipped with a sink and a shower/tub combo. Nothing special about them but nothing to complain about either.
Maid service is only offered once a week at this hotel and since I stayed only four days the maid never came. I knew about this before booking this hotel and liked it. I was staying by myself and am not messy enough that I needed someone to pick up after me. It was nice not having to worry about someone coming in when I was trying to nap as has happened to me in the past even with the do not disturb sign out. If you need fresh towels or bedding the front desk will accomodate you. There are garbage cans in the stairwell of each floor.
The location of this hotel was perfect for me as I was in Boise to go shopping. The hotel is directly across the street from the Mall and is near to a lot of other stores and restaurants.
