“Don't believe breakfast included”
Reviewed 26 August 2013 via mobile

Unless you only have coffee for breakfast don't believe the offering here. They don't have a breakfast room because all rooms have full kitchens
You can shop for your breakfast in the DingDongs an other processed goods downstairs, then pay for the privilege
Probably not a problem for most guests as this is a longer stay place
It was clean, except for smoke smell in smokers rooms( who has these anymore?)
Staff were friendly and change four room immediately when we told them it was a smelling room
Probably will not go back

Dear MiguelitoyCat:
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience on TripAdvisor. We are sorry that our hotel did not provide the features you were looking for in your hotel stay such as free breakfast and 100% non-smoking rooms. Candlewood Suites encourages the inner chefs of our guests with its well-equipped granite kitchens with full-sized appliances. We try to cater to the comfort of our guests from all walks of life, including smokers, and as a policy we always have some rooms set aside as smoking rooms. Thank you for tempering your disappointment in your stay with a shout-out to our great staff at the front desk and housekeeping. Your comments were very much appreciated.
Sincerely,
Mario Lee, General Manager

The girls at the front desk are very nice and eager to help. My son lost a tooth and wrote a note to the tooth fairy that required a response and the girl at the front desk re wrote our response in her hand writing for us without hesitation. The rooms were nice and the air conditioning worked well. They had a great fitness center and laundry facility. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were clean.

Should you ever need any more letters from the tooth fairy, I'm certain we can arrange it. Thanks again for choosing Candlewood Suites. We hope to welcome you back again soon.

I recently spent two nights at this extended-stay hotel in a queen one bedroom suite. It was a most pleasant experience. Upon check-in, my dog and I were greeted by Michelle, a most friendly and lovely young woman. Due to her efficiency, check-in was both quick and seamless. Within minutes we were in the elevator and heading up to the third floor one bedroom queen suite. Upon entering, I immediately noticed absolutely no smell to the room. This is rare! Obviously Candlewood Suites are very particular about keeping the rooms clean, in addition to all the common areas. The entire place was pristine!

The suite included a very well planned kitchen area (with full sized fridge) that included a desk return that functions as both a business workspace and dining area. The furniture in the livingroom was comfortable and the television was a Vizio HD that was an appropriate size for the livingroom area. The bedroom was very roomy and comfortable - the bed and light duvet provided me with two absolutely heavenly sleeps. The bathroom was spotless and again afforded a great deal of space to move around in. Quite honestly, this suite was much larger than many one bedroom condos I have been in!

As far as the area the hotel is in, I have to say that even as a woman, I did not feel unsafe in the neighbourhood. Yes, there are some empty lots around the hotel, but I never felt as though I was taking a risk walking in the area. I also walked my dog in the area just before 11 p.m. every night and found the area to be quiet, as opposed to being scary.

After spending 4 nights in an expensive hotel on the Oregon Coast in Seaside (beachfront one bedroom) that gave my dog fleas and a needed trip to a local veterinary hospital, I can say that Candlewood Suites was truly a breath of fresh air. I will definitely return!

Room Tip: Rooms at the back of the hotel are very quiet.

Considering how difficult it was to find a reasonably priced, nice, safe-surrounding hotel in Tacoma, we were delighted with the Candlewood. The staff were very pleasant, the room was clean, towels and bedding were nice. Because it is set up for extended stays, they had a little store where one could purchase quite a variety of things, including food. We really enjoyed our stay and felt that we had lucked out with this find! We were in Tacoma for the State Track Meet, which means a couple hundred teams were in the area, and space was hard to come by, but we made reservations on the Sunday before and found ourselves within 10 minutes of the stadium.

I picked this place because of the kitchen, to have a nice homemade breakfast before heading back to a workshop. They also had good reviews.

First if your not an asthmatic and tobacco smoke doesn't bother you you will enjoy your stay. My experience is that this is as non-smoking as living next to a neighbor who stands and smokes right outside your window, except you can't completely close that window. I have been in several hotels in this area and this is the first one that I have had trouble breathing in due to smoking. The stair well doors were open and instead of letting in fresh early spring air we were treated with smoke as people are allowed to smoke by the open outside door. We did manage by stuffing a towel under the door. Management just shrugged their heads and basically told us to tough it. The air conditioning unit also has one fan setting so getting filtered air was at full blast or it was off.


The kitchen is nice and the beds comfortable.

The Candlewood Suites Lakewood/Tacoma has an excellent location to McCord Air Force Base and Fort Lewis. The staff is so friendly and treats you like family. Pets are allowed for a small fee and they even have a pet walking area. We really enjoyed the spacious room and kitchen to help avoid having to eat out all the time or cook solely in a microwave. If you are a movie buff they have hundreds of new release movie for use complimentary. Lastly, the free guest laundry and state of the art fitness center help to ease the burden. We will stay again any time we are in the Tacoma/Lakewood area. Thank you again.

I stayed at this location for about a month. The staff were very friendly and always had a smile. The owner even grilled us a steak dinner because we were there for so long. Of course, with the two awesome built-in Weber Summits on the patio, we pretty much grilled every night ourselves.
They have a DVD collection with many of the newest releases and you can watch them for free, and if the one you want is checked out the staff will hold it for you when it returns and call you to let you know.
The location is good with many restaurants and shopping within a few miles. It's close to the I-5 and Highway 512 so going anywhere else is easy too.
They are near a joint AFB and are very welcoming to the military and military contractors. I will stay here again whenever I'm in the area and I definitely recommend this location to anyone else staying near Lakewood.
