"Extended Stay Amenities Without the Extended Price Tag"
Overall Score3.5/ 5
The Candlewood Suites is located on the cusp of the blossoming River Ranch area, near the Oil Center. It is situated on the busy thoroughfare of Kaliste Saloom, which puts just about every part of Lafayette within easy reach. The best part of this hotel is that it is actually an all suite property. Rooms are clean and spacious with tonal decor. There are various configurations, but all contain a fully furnished kitchenette with dishwasher and full sized refrigerator. A mini-mart sells any conveniences you would need to get you settled in for your first night. The Candlewood Suites is part of a trend bringing the consistency of your favorite brands to the layout of the extended stay hotel. Guests should be aware that the hotel does not currently have a pool, but there is a covered area with a beautiful gas grill that is perfect for cook-outs. Give the Candlewood Suites a try for an overnight stay, or a week long trip. Either way, you will be pleased.

Verified Reviews of Candlewood Suites

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Great experience but no pool."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Overall, our experience here was great! Kitchen was stocked with utensils/appliances/pans; wasn't expecting that. However, they don't want you to actually cook but only warm food on the burners. Washers and dryers were free, totally cool! Room was large and clean! I would definitely recommend this hotel if you're okay not having a pool.

"Stinky floor and no washing machines."
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The carpet in our room stunk the whole time. They don't bring you towels, you have to get them yourself. They have three washing machines, but only two work. When you wash it takes over two hours to complete a load and then still want to charge you $94 per night. We won't be back.
