Mixed results. Room for improvement
Very smelly lobby and hallways. Smelled of cheap, coconut-scented air freshener. Room was clean and comfortable. Check-in was pleasant and efficient.

The area around the hotel is dirty and dangerous. There was drug dealing going around the parking lot. There is a Red Roof Inn that shares the property and it was dirty, noisy and not safe at all. The Candlewood was OK, and the staff was friendly. The room was clean for the most part, but the recliner was dirty and smelled. I was afraid to sit in it. I wouldn't recommend this one.
