Our Hotel Planner Expert Reviews of Candlewood Suites University

Our expert hotel planners periodically visit and review the hotels we represent in person.
"Great Extended Stay Hotel"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
The htoel is a few miles east of UNCC and sits off WT Harris Blvd. It is a quiet and remote area with plenty of easily accessible parking. The entrance has two small lobby's and a security door for evenings. Breakfast is not included because each room has a fully equipped kitchen. All 122 rooms have one king sized bed with pull-out sleeper sofa, handicapped rooms available. The rooms are nicely appointed in neutural colors whites and beige. The kitchen area is extremly nice with black cabinets, microwave, refrigerator, and 2 burner flat top surface stove. Includes all dishes and cooking utinsels. The room is very spacious and extremely clean, with good lighting. The hotel has the Candlewood Pantry in which you can purchase snacks and additional items for extended stays. In the same area is complimentary laundry facilities and an exercise room. The exercise equipment is a little older, but I was told it will be getting replaced in the near future. Although there are not any restaurants within walking distance, there are many options just a short drive away. All rooms are non-smoking, and the hotel does have designated pet rooms. No weight restrictions but there is a non-refundable deposit. Overall I give this hotel a very high rating for an extended stay hotel. It was very nicely appointed, in a serene area which is easy to get in and out of.

Verified Reviews of Candlewood Suites University

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Nice Place for a Long Term Stay"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
I stayed at the Candlewood Suites University for 90+ days while working in the area. The staff was very friendly and always greeted me by name when I would come back in the evening. Housekeeping was good as well. Often when you stay somewhere for a long time (I travel about 300 days a year), the housekeeping tends to gets sloppy. The free laundry is also a plus. I would definitely stay here again.
