No Surprises

Posted May 1, 2017
Pros: I was asked at check in whether I'd like to have a room on an upper floor. That was nice! It makes the visitor feel respected and honored.
Cons: There could, and should, be a bell of some sort that alerts staff or hotel management that someone is at the front desk.
Location: There were many stores and restaurants nearby, and the man checking me into the hotel was very eager to tell me about these places.
My stay at Candlewood Suites in Fort Lauderdale, Florida in late April 2017 was as expected. It is important to mention that one expects common courtesy no matter what one pays for the stay! In this I was not disappointed. However, I do have one complaint: Often the front desk has no one immediately present attending it; one arrives to a vacant corridor and reception desk. It is customary in such circumstances to look for a bell of some sort, which summons someone nearby the to desk to help you. But I looked around and found no buzzer or bell. I stand there wondering if somebody is going to show up in a few minutes. And I am one of those people who finds it quasi-classless to shout out for an unknown somebody (aside from emergencies). I also believe in being understanding and patient, so I do not shout out something like, "Hello. Is anybody there?" This may be routine at one-and-a-half-star hotels and motels, but I do not stay at such places. If the management wants to leave the front dest unattended - even with the clerk just around a corner - there needs to be a bell alert of some kind. As I've stated, there wasn't. For this reason, I would not recommend the hotel. Such a circumstance leads the guest to infer that he/she is a bother, an interruption, a distraction, etc. Unwise for any hotel hoping to compete in a highly competitive hospitality market!

Average hotel

Posted Apr 15, 2017
Pros: Close to airport.
Cons: Housekeeping was sloppy. I checked into a room with trash in the bin, en empty toilet tissue roll was on the vanity and tissue was in the toilet.
Location: Near airport, small shopping plaza and eateries.
Short trip. Hotel was average. Full sized fridge. Other kitchen amenities were nice.

Basic and clean

Posted Feb 21, 2017
Pros: Cleaniness
Reception staff was friendly. Room was basic and clean. Good for one night pre cruise. There are a few restaurants within walking distance. Towels were clean. They have bottled water and snacks for sale at reasonable prices. Shuttle driver was pleasant.

Nice location

Posted Feb 19, 2017
Pros: Easy access
Cons: no suggestion
Location: A mini shopping center, food, clothing, eating places, gas station
Needed a place not too far from the airport and close to a lot of facilities and a good price range. This would be a great place for families or for someone that needs to stay a longer time.

For the price...nah. Close to the airport and clean enough, but not impressive at all.
