Address not GPS friendly
Posted Jul 25, 2016
I've stayed at a few other Candlewood Suites before so I booked with confidence based on my prior experiences with the franchise. This particular location was not GPS friendly as I had to drive up and down Hwy 35 a few times before locating the hotel. Also, the hotel entrance does no stand out and it is easy to pass by. The service road the hotel sits on is pretty busy with a high MPH.
Con: Difficult to find on GPS, hotel was not as clean as it looks. I found a few hair strands on the pillow and between the sheets. I doubt they changed the bed sheets. This is one of the few things that really grosses me out. Although I didnt use the kitchen, I noticed pots and pans were not clean (you can see finger stains). Secondly, the fire alarm went off around 2:00 AM and all the guests had to evacuate. I'm not sure if some nut set it off or there was a valid reason. The wall was thin, I could hear my neighbor cough but guests were nice in general and quiet. For the price I paid, I could've stayed at a better and higher rated hotel.
Pro: Right off the highway, close to Congress blvd where the restaurants are and free parking. The staff who checked me in was nice.
