Not a bad choice if you want a cheap but reliable property, especially if you are an IHG/Reward Club card holder, but very surprised to see it got a Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor as it really is in the 'cheap and cheerful' category.
Rooms are OK - small, pretty basic but clean and bed not too bad.
And it is important to note that it is of course NOT on or by Times Square - it is in a quite different type of neighbourhood and a good 10 minutes walk from the Square itself. If you want to stay on Times Square stay at one of the many (higher star, and more expensive) hotels that are on Times Square itself.
Finally, the hotel is very, very similar in room type and quality to the Staybridge Suites (also IHG hotels) that it actually backs on to, the only difference is that Candlewood Suites are a little more informal - Staybridge looks a touch posher and has a little shop in the lobby, Candlewood more relaxed and had a DVD collection you can borrow films from.
So my advice would be, if you want this kind of hotel in this part of town, to look at both and book which ever one happens to be cheaper when you want to stay (as prices at both fluctuate wildly all year round).
