Verified Reviews of Candlewood Suites Watertown / Fort Drum

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"3rd party booking debacles."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
I booked my room with a third party, they provided me with misinformation. Luckily, the hotel had an additional room because there was no pull out couch (my representative said there was) for our 3rd child. The hotel staff was great and did everything they could to help us rectify the situation. I will never book through a website again, not only was their information about the room inaccurate, it was $40 more per night!
