“I LOVE THIS HOTEL”
Reviewed 27 May 2013

I'm not sure what the last 2 reviews were all about. I have been staying at this hotel every week for almost a year, and have never experienced the issues they wrote about. The hotel is ALWAYS clean, and the staff is ALWAYS warm, helpful and friendly. I think they might have reviewed the wrong hotel. The hotel could use some refreshing, but it definitely does not appear to be 15-20 years old, nor is anything falling apart. As far as ice machines, every room has an icemaker in it, so someone must just be too lazy to make their own. Don't believe what you read, stay at the hotel and make your own decision. The location is perfect, the price is fair, and in my opinion, the staff is fantastic.

Not impressed with the value, carpet was grungy, mildew smell in bathroom. Bed was really good.
For price stay across the street at springhill suites.
The entire property needs updating, location is good.

Room Tip: First floor on end away from street

This is perfect example of hotel in decline. Looks to be 15 to 20 years old. Exterior looks good. Public area is not clean. Staff not professional. Elevator floor sticky. No ice machines. Don't bother. Much better suite hotel down the street for $30 more.

Room Tip: Do not stay there.

Our property is only 5 years old, so your comments about it appearing to be 15-20 years old concerned me. We also have a full time housekeeper whose only job is to clean our public areas, so I am also quite shocked about your comments regarding our public areas. Your feedback is very important to us as this assists us in continually improving the services and facilities we have to offer to our guests.

We'll be back this next week. We love our stay here because they are so nice and pet friendly. I go with my hubby to his work training and its a great hotel that seems like a home. LOVE the big frig--because I take only organic doggie food :D You can walk to several local eateries that are delicious!

It was my mom's 84th birthday and we wanted to stay near her. We made reservations online and were so impressed with the whole experience. The checkin was flawless...a nice young man. The room was clean and bed is set up away from hallway which is great for noise disturbances. We were across from ice machine (always a no-no) and we never heard it. The room was nicely dark for sleeping, bed was very comfortable, pillows were great, and we slept like babies. I would definitely recommend staying here if you are in the area. It was a great experience.

We recently passed through Lafayette and stopped for the night. We found this hotel online while searching for pet friendly establishments. There is a pet fee involved, but we were willing to pay, as our pets are our family. When we arrived, the employee that checked us in not only offered us pet treats, but volunteered to walk our pet while we unloaded the car!!! What a wonderful gesture. We left early the next morning as we still had a long drive ahead of us. The room as a whole was quiet and comfortable. Candlewood has earned our business for future stays when we travel with our "family".

Room Tip: Pet fee is worth the service!

I only began using TripAdvisor just last year because I was tired of reading reviews from people who claimed their experiences were the "be all, end all" for whatever they were doing. You hardly ever get a chance to read something good.

Well, I am a repeat guest at this property. I have been staying with this hotel for sometime now and I can tell you they go out of their way to take care of me. AND, at no time during my stay did I witness anything less for any other guest.

I would categorize myself as self-sufficient and not needing a lot of the amenities you get at full service hotels. But here, I get personal attention every time I walk through the lobby. I am greeted by name, always asked how my stay is and if there is anything else they can do for me, and I always get a quiet, clean, comfortable room! There is really nothing more I could ask for.

Thank you, Candlewood Suites of Lafayette, for making my stays excellent!

Room Tip: The hotel faces a very busy road; however, even when I stayed in rooms on this side, the road noise...
