General information: When we booked our hotel room online the room looked bigger than when he actually arrived. However, it was still spacious. The outside was very well lite & the room was very clean. However, the hallway on the 4th floor (where we stayed) did smell icky close to the elevator. The smell remained the entire 7 days we were there. Once we got past the first 3 rooms the smell was gone. Wi-Fi worked perfectly while we were there. Always a plus.
Location and surroundings: Our hotel was located tucked away in the perfect location so that there isn't all the noise from traffic, yet just down the road from all of the restaurants & shopping you could want. There is actually a grocery store on the back side of the hotel. For entertainment there is Crystal Palace staking rink just around the corner as well as the local mall where they have $3 matinée movies daily, no to mention it is close to 2 parks with swimming. & even though the airport is close, the planes did not disturb us...rather we found them fascinating.
Service: The staff was very friendly. The cleaning staff always smiled & were pleasant, but our favorites were the younger gentleman glasses & great dark coloured hair) & older Hispanic gentleman--amazing. We also really liked the maintenance guy...he was awesome.
Dining: The few downsides to the actual hotel is that they do not have a free breakfast bar or a restaurant. However, they do have items that you can purchase in their lil store area. & there are places near by. However, if they put in an actual breakfast bar &/or restaurant, that would put them at the top of the hotel game.
Sports and leisure: The pool looked bigger on the website, however, it was actually an adequate size. We enjoyed throwing my mom her birthday party in the grilling section & the other guests were all friendly & we all accommodated one another in taking turns sharing the space. The pool was very clean & we liked that there was a restroom within the pool gates. It made it easier when our child had to use to restroom to not have to run back upstairs to go. We found that the sitting area as you first walked, by the check-in desk, gave it a home type feel.
Room: Our room was on the 4th floor which gave us a great view overlooking the parking lot, the pool, & of all aircrafts. Our bathroom was very larger than the average size hotel, which was nice. We also enjoyed the kitchen area in our room. The hotel also had so many different appliances we could borrow as well. The fact that they had what was available displayed in a cabinet was very helpful. Along with appliances, they also had games that were available...all were at no charge which was very nice. The couple across the hall from us had a few large dogs that liked to bark whenever we came & went but once we mentioned it to the front desk, we did not hear them bark anymore. We did like the fact that the hotel is pet friendly though.
Useful tips: We arrived in town way earlier than expected so we called to see if we could check in early. Thankfully, we were able to check in several hours early (5 hours early). We would recommend Candlewood Inn & Suites to anyone who is visiting the Fort. & we would love to stay again the next time we visit.
