I really didn't want to stop, but I couldn't drive anymore. When I saw there was a Candlewood near the restaurant I was using WiFi in, I was pleased. When I entered the hotel...less pleased. The guy at the desk said what he was supposed to, acknowledged my priority club membership, did what he was supposed to but wasn't really all that pleasant to deal with. OK fine, I thought, he's not the "chatty type". I grabbed the luggage cart and headed to my room. On the way I passed peeling paint, dirty walls, grubby floor and a dingy elevator. At the end of the hall was a creepy punk who held a phone to his ear but stared at me the entire time. After a trip to my car the same creep loitered by the elevators but never got on. I suspected going to the teens at the front desk would offer me little comfort so I locked myself in my room and put it out of my mind. (I miss adults running hotel front desks) Anyway the room was no comfort either. Same as the hallway: dirty walls, dingy floors, dirty doors, The chair cushion was so flat I felt wood when I sat down. The sofa was so unappealing I threw down a pillow and sat on the coffee table, which was still softer than the chair. I did appreciate the large desk/eating area and the separate bedroom. Upon check out one guy stared at me from behind a desk while the other gave me my paperwork with no interaction and even less pleasantness. This is not what I expect from a Candlewood, and is definitely the worst I have experienced in the chain. I could not leave this place fast enough.
