I didn't need much

I wasn't looking for anything fantastic when I booked the room. But to be honest aside from the external appearance I can't understand why this hotel is rated as a 2 star. I think too many people out there expect too many things in this world. The room was great. It had a full size refrigerator, a small cook top, an over the rang microwave. And that was the kitchen area. A swivel mounted flat screen tv, a large desk area, place to stow my things. A large bathroom. A queen size bed. Free WiFi. Honestly like I said aside from the external appearance I don't get it. I wish people on the internet would stop crying like a bunch of children when they review things.

Good experiance

They were under renovation at the time, but that didn;t effect our stay at all. The room was clean, staff was excelent, and it was close to campus and the football stadium.

An alright overnight stay

The location of this hotel was perfect but the room was a bit out-dated and not as clean as I would have liked. The food area was all but empty, which was disappointing because they do not include a continental breakfast with the stay.

Weekend to Ann Arbor for football game

The hotel was clean and the room was spacious and had applicances including a microwave, fridge, and ice maker in the freezer which all came in handy. Other reviews have said it was hard to find so I just printed out a close up map of the area from Google maps and we found it without a problem. We used yellow cab and the ride from the hotel to downtown area was $11 which was great. Also, we were only a few minutes from the field and it was not hard to find at al from where we were coming from. If we go back to Ann Arbor, we will definitly be staying at the Candlewood Suites.

Check out Grizley Peak Brewing Company. The food was great and it was reasonably priced. They also brew their own beer so we did a beer tasting while we were waiting for our table. Staff was friendly and quick even though it was busy.

Good value & location

My husband and I spent two nights at Candlewood Suites recently. The receptionist was very friendly. She checked us in an hour early and gave us maps of the city and local area. Because of our early check-in, we were assigned one of the handicap accessible rooms right off the lobby. The room was clean & spacious though it did have a faint tobacco smell suggesting the room was not always smoke-free. Although the hotel location was right off the interstate loop, it was still difficult to find due to Ann Arbors love of one way streets and no left turns at lights! It took us several attempts and U-turns to get into the correct lane to enter the hotel (the sign of which is rather small). That was the only negative about staying at Candlewood Suites. The postives include plenty of nearby restaurants, a shopping mall, and a good price.

We went to see a movie at the Rave Motion Picture Theatre a few exits down the road from the hotel on Carpenter Road (Ypsilanti). It was a huge, new theatre with 20 screens.

Weekend getaway to remember!

The hotel was in a great location, just mins. away from the mall and downtown Ann Arbor! It was quiet and very peaceful. If I'm ever back in Ann Arbor, I already know where I'm staying!!!

Not your typical Hotel, but OK

Was expecting a typical hotel with lobby and breakfast room. Instead the lobby was a window. housekeeping was not daily and you had to bring your towels and sheets to lobby to refresh. No big deal but not what we were expecting. Rooms were clean. Kitchen with fridge and cooking area was a bonus. Once you get over the non extra's the overall stay was pleasant. Do it again? Maybe!

It was..."OK".

It was a little strange. We get there and you have to get your room key from a 'lock box' in the vestibule before entering the hotel. It wasn't very warm and inviting. the rooms were ok...shower water pressure was horrid, and the 'curved' shower curtain bar was nothing but annoying. The bed was very comfy though and overall it was ok. Wouldn't spend another night there though.

Ann Arbor visit

The hotel staff was very friendly, and the hotel was very quiet. I was very happy there. It was not luxurious, but it was a good value for the money.

Down town Ann Arbor was not far away. The lights are beautiful in December, so if you like to walk, make sure to bring a warm coat, hat, and gloves.
