“Just Average”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

For me to give a hotel more than average it has to actually be more than what you expect a hotel should be. A hotel should be a nice place to stay. A home away from home. If it achieves this then a hotel does exactly what it is supposed to and deserves and average. It served its purpose. It was a good place to sleep. I did not care for the room layout in my suite but it wasn't terrible. One thing I would have liked is an inside place I could sit and hangout while my roommate slept but the only place I was told that was available is outside in the heat. There is also the front entrance but that is a little awkward. All in all an average stay.

I traveled this weekend to pick my daughter up from camp. I've been doing this for the last few years trying different hotels but never really liking any of them enough to make it my regular stop. That has now changed. This place was well suited to my needs - a clean comfortable room and a very friendly staff. Having actual DirecTV in the rooms an opposed to the grainy local cable signal that has been split too many times was a nice surprise. I appreciated the full kitchen with refrigerator so I could bring along drinks and snacks for the next day. The location was great with easy access to loop 281 and a number of places to eat and shop as needed. But, even though my room was on the road facing side, I had no issues with outside noise. The only nit, and it is a minor one - don't expect a scenic view out the window. One side faces the parking lot and the other, which I was in, had a breathtaking view of...the back of a shopping center :) Still, the window provided light into the room when I needed it and the curtains did a good job shutting out the light when closed. All in all, I was very satisfied with my stay and plan to return whenever I find need to be in Longview.

Spent two nights here in late June on business. I found the property to be in very, very good condition overall - it appeared to be almost new as of June 2014. The front desk staff was VERY friendly and made me feel welcome and appreciated.

The room was great: large, well appointed, clean, and comfortable. Unusual in my experience, the A/C almost worked too good! The linens and the bedding was great - very clean and smelled fine.

I was a bit disappointed in the fact that this property didn't have regular housekeeping services. (Apparently, they must be requested by placing a small magnetic sign on the outside of your door.) Not really a concern for me save for the removal of trash....again, you apparently have to place that outside your door in the morning if you want it removed. Not a big deal, but those details certainly weren't made clear to me upon arrival.

All in all, I'd highly recommend this property if you're needing a place in Longview or the surrounding areas.

Room Tip: Remember to put the signs on your door!

Staff is Amazing!!

I stayed at this Candlewood for a little over three months. The staff there made me feel at home from day one!! Anything I needed for my room they made it happen. Their daily conversation and cheerful attitudes were much appreciated. They know the area well and have many great recommendations for where to eat and what to see and do. Every part of my stay was perfect!! Special thanks to Jeanette and Josh!!

This was my first time staying at Candlewood Suites but will NOT be my last! Not only was the staff first rate but the rooms were super clean, comfortable and with the kitchen realy made it homey. I used the outdoor gas fired BBQ grills on 2 nights and met some very nice fellow travelers. I will be coming back to Longview for a few nights every month and will be staying here EVERY TIME! I usually stay across the way at the HI Express but I actually prefer this property and will most likely stay in other Candlewood locations when available. Stay here and enjoy the amenities, location and very comfy beds. They don't offer "free" breakfast so take the money you save and go out to eat or better yet, cook your own. THIS IS A GREAT PLACE TO STAY!

Room Tip: All rooms are suites, either one bed, two beds or a king suite. All have kitchens.

My family and I were in Longview, Texas for my oldest brother's funeral. When we knew the time was close, I called and made reservations for two rooms...not knowing the exact date of arrival yet. The general manager, Josh, was wonderful and understanding. He gave me his personal cell # to keep him updated, so the rooms would be available at the right time. I ended up needing three rooms, which Josh was more than willing to supply. When we arrived, there was a blackout in the area due to the ice storm. Josh was waiting outside the hotel when we arrived at 12:30 in the early morning. I cannot tell you how wonderful we all felt during our stay under a lot of stress and sadness. Josh's staff was as warm and wonderful as he was. I would recommend this hotel any day! Thank you Josh and staff...May God Bless you all.

I was in town for my mothers funeral and with many relatives here as well, the houses filled up. I needed a very quiet but unpretentious place to rest and do some thinking.. this fit the bill to a "T". When I mentioned I was in town for a funeral, they, no questions asked, gave me a special rate , much lower, and put me on the top floor near the elevator(Very Quiet). To my delight they had DIrecTV (YEAH!) and a full kitchen , full size everything!! They even had popcorn in the microwave waiting for your late night munching pleasure. AND ICE MAKERS!! The bathroom was big enough to put about 15 people into which only the nicest hotels offer large bathrooms like this one. Water pressure, hurrah!! I slept like a top, good cold air and coffee right there in the room and it was good coffee, not starbucks, but still good coffee. These guys know whow to treat you good and I highly recommend them. I am a smoker, I know, boo to me, but it was nice to have that option in the days of non smoking anywhere. I hope they keep that policy, because their are people like me who do still smoke and yes, we are smokers so we don't mind the smell. But it caters to all!! Close to a nice Mexican restaurant, the mall, close to walmart, longview High school, Longview Regional Hosp. On 4th and Hollybrook. Nice and all under 90 dollars. Can't beat it!!!! I know I will stay with them again this weekend when i have to go back for other business to take care of in longview...

Room Tip: the room I had was on the top floor and near the elevator, south side, very quiet.
