Verified Reviews of Candlewood Suites Athens An Ihg Hotel

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Candlewood Hotel Athens is Great"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
We checked in on Sunday evening and were greeted as soon as the door opened! The lobby was extremely clean, as was the elevator and the hallways. We entered our room and were pleasantly surprised at how clean it was! Full size refrigerator, microwave, stovetop and dishwasher. Everything we needed to cook for two people. If we're back in the Athens, GA, area we will stay at Candlewood Hotel. I highly recommend this place!
