Candlewood Suites - Salina

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 July 2014

At 15,000 IHG rewards points, the Candlewood was not an exceptional value, but it was every bit as clean and nice as expected, with friendly workers. My kids actually said "Wow!" when we walked in the room. Like some other reviewers, we wished it had a (free) breakfast, but that's not their niche.

My wife and I stayed at the Candlewood Suites in Salina, Kansas along with my daughter and her husband awaiting the adopted birth of our first Grandchild. The staff was very friendly and more than competent. They presented us with us friendly smiles and made us feel more than welcome. The general manager Jeff was more than accommodating for all our needs and does a fantastic job with this hotel. Brandi and the housekeeping staff was unbelievable and kept the entire place remarkably clean and sterile, which is a must when we travel because my wife has Multiple Sclerosis. The rooms are equipped with kitchenettes which allowed us to save an enormous amount of money shopping at the market next door and cooking in the rooms. The front desk staff Joni, Jani, Bianca and Jerry were so helpful, kind and terrific making us feel so welcomed. Mark, the maintenance man does a superb job on keeping the grounds and rooms in great condition always working so hard. It is great to come from Los Angeles to middle America and meet such wonderful people. Thanks for everything you did for us. You will always be apart of our families memories.

We stay at Candlewood Suites Salina KS once or twice a year for 2 to 3 weeks at a time. The rooms are well suited for our longer stays with lots of room and small kitchen. Large refrigerator is extra nice. The staff ia always friendly and has always been most helpful and gone out of their way to make us feel at home.The cupboard - vending area is open 24 hours a day, very well stocked with almost anything you need at very reasonable prices. It's great for one of those sleepless nights to grab something to eat or drink.

First of all, this place was hard to find. And once we did we were sorry we had. In fact, if it hadn't been so late, we would've have cancelled and checked it at the Holiday Inn Express. There was very limited parking, the room was small with an even smaller bathroom, the "lobby" was no more than a narrow hallway with mail boxes lining one side. The view from our room overlooked another wall and there was no place to set our luggage. Fortunately, we were only there overnight.

Room Tip: Look elsewhere.

The rooms are nice, well equipped, and the staff friendly and competent. Room assignments were done ahead of time and our preference for a first floor room was honored. The "queen" bed appeared smaller than normal, but then I sleep in a king at home ... perhaps it was just my memory.

The biggest downside ... and it's a big one ... is the place does not serve breakfast. We haven't seen this in years and won't be back. Not only was it inconvenient, it caused us to eat out adding to both the cost and time involved.

Dear Mike C,

Thank you for staying with us and leaving your review. The Candlewood Suites hotels are our extended stay hotels, and are meant to make you feel more at home. Our signature hotel amenities allow you to live, work, and relax in much the same way you would in your own home without feeling like you’re in a hotel. We offer weekly housekeeping as well as fully stocked kitchens in your room. We do not have a restaurant on property, but offer our Candlewood Cupboard where you can pick-up a variety of food, beverages, and even toiletry items whenever you want.

IHG offers a variety of options for what you are looking for. If you need an extended stay hotel offering free breakfast we have our Staybridge Suites. If you are looking for a hotel with daily housekeeping as well as complimentary breakfast our Holiday Inn Express hotels would be a good fit. Our Holiday Inn and Crowne Plaza hotels offer daily housekeeping and are full service hotels with a full service restaurant on property.

We apologize our Candlewood Suites was not the right fit for you. While we understand that your stay was not 100% satisfactory, we would hope that you would give us another chance to make your stay as best as it can be.

Thank you again for your comments. Your business is valued and we hope your future travel plans will continue to include IHG properties.

Regards,

Brenda J.
Case Manager

My husband and I stayed at Candlewood Suites in Salina for two days in April of this year. The room was spacious, clean and supplied with everything we needed, including a recliner. The staff was helpful, friendly and went out of their way to make our stay welcome. I needed a soda during the night, and the always open snack bar let my husband by crackers and soda during the night.

I would highly recommend this hotel for travelers.

This is an older candlewood, but the rooms were clean, they have 8 free washer and dryers, and their food is priced cheap in the cupboard. If you staying somewhere more than a day or two a Candlewood is the best place to stay. Friendly staff here too!
