If you're looking for some place fancy or you're particular about your hotels, this place is not for you. However, if you're easy going about your hotels, the only real thing that's wrong with this place is its proximity to a busy rail line.
- AWESOME for dogs. The hotel is very dog friendly, has plenty of exits for emergency bathroom breaks, big rooms with plenty space for a crate/pet, proximity to a big open field for off-leash exercise, a pet-friendly staff, and very reasonable pet fees. The rooms are well insulated so even when my dog was yelping and crying, I could BARELY hear it from the hallway. Trust me... I checked.
-Reasonable rates. This hotel was about the same price as gross hotels like Super 8, and $30/night cheaper than other area hotels of comparable quality. The government rate is really low.
-Proximity to the expressway. The highway is only a couple minutes away; far enough to not cause noise but close enough not to get lost
-Big rooms. For the price, the rooms are comfortable and large and perfectly adequate. Each room has a kitchen and a big bathroom with plenty of space to stretch out, especially if you'll be in your room for more than a night or two.
I'm active duty military so I've slept in worse conditions... but even among hotels, Candlewood was a solid 2.5-3 stars. They get an extra star for being awesome for traveling with pets.
