I am in Madison Wisconsin on business for 4 weeks. This is my first time at a Candlewood Suites and I was a little apprehensive as they advertised themselves as a 'no frills' hotel. When I arrived on May 9th, I was a little apprehensive because the elevator carpet was old, torn, dirty, worn and stapled together. I felt that if this was an indication of how the hotel was managed that it would not be a pleasant stay. However, I started seeing daily cleanings, chipped paint repairs and the elevator carpet removed and replaced with tile!! I even saw Maurice (an employee), cleaning the air conditioner vent and painting the coat room this morning. I like this hotel and would gladly refer others to stay here. Now, the rooms run a bit small for a suite. Everything is in one room (the bed, kitchenette and table)but, it's doable. There is a swimming pool, free parking and free washer and dryer. Maurice is great, and the rest of the staff is open and amiable. We are greeted upon daily departures and returns. Pretty good Candlewood Fitchburg!!!
