Good room!

Loved the room. Unfortunately, the hotel common areas were under construction but will look forward to another stay when renovations are complete. The location is very convenient, as well. The only suggestion I have would be to stay competitive by offering a continental breakfast (altho that may increase the room price, I suppose) Thanks!

Great hotel for the price.

We originally chose this hotel for the price not expecting anything great. We were very surprised. Very nice hotel at a very affordable rate.

Fantastic

Went on a romantic get-away, service was great, hotel staff was friendly. Hotel bed was comfortable, more geared toward business people. Had DVD's to rent at front desk. DVD player in room. All i can say, is i will stay again.

Good Experience

Staff was very attentive, and the place is immaculately clean. It has free washers and dryers, and a very nice little exercise room. It's also very conveniently located next to a Wal-Mart and a Meijer. This was great for me, as I had forgotten some things at home and was able to just buzz across the street to get what I needed. The rooms, however, are the real sell for this hotel. They have everything you could possibly need... full sized refrigerator, stove, pots, pans, dishes, silverware, microwave, and dishwasher. And, with the Meijer grocery store right next door, you can pick up all the provisions you'll need for your stay. The flat screen t.v. was also a nice touch, with a very clear picture, and HBO. Only two things stand out as needing improvement -- housekeeping only comes once a week. And the little pantry in the hotel has almost nothing in it -- it could be improved.

Wow

I travel quite a bit to the Bloomington/Normal area and by default stayed at the Candlewood Suites. I will never pick another hotel for future stays. The staff was great, even had fresh baked cookies at check-in. On Wednesday evening the management staff put on a free social that I wasn't expecting...saved from going out to dinner. My room was very good sized and with the free high speed and got much of my work done as well.

Sleeping on a cloud

This hotel is wonderful! I have experienced 3 separate trips there now and each experience has been very pleasant. The bedding is like sleeping on a cloud - so soft and nice. Rooms are spotless, safe, and quiet. The kitchen is stocked with all the utensils, etc you'd need. There's even a complementary popcorn package for the microwave. The food pantry downstairs has all kinds of stuff at very reasonable prices for snacks or meals to microwave. There are two computers and a printer in the business center. No restaurant or bar on-site but the hotel is centrally located near anything and everything you could want. The staff is eager to please and very helpful. I wish all hotels were run this well. Plan your next stay here, you won't be disappointed.
