This was our first time staying at a Candlewood Suite extended stay facility (3 nights). The business center, free laundry, well stocked canteen were great. While the suite was roomy with full-sized fridge, a microwave, dual hot plate and dishwasher, it had a unpleasant musty odor that hit you when you entered. The elevator, stairwells and hallways were dirty and had not been vacuumed during our stay. The fabric cushioned kitchen chairs in the suite were badly stained and there was dust on horizontal surfaces. The end of the hall fire doors to the stairwells did not have controlled closure so the banging of these steel doors was frequently heard at all hours. The facility was at full capacity and ran out of extra pillows and for a short time, toilet paper.
The front desk staff member we spoke with was not familiar with how to start or program the fitness equipment and once we figured it out ourselves 2 machines were non functional.
Needless to say we are underwhelmed with the management of this facility. With attention to the shortcomings described above, the accommodation value of this facility would be very good.
