Candlewood Suites Alexandria

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I stayed at the Candlewood Suites in Alexandria Louisiana with a group of high school kids and their coach who were there for a regional golf tournament. In the chaos of getting everyone up, checked out, and to the golf course, I unfortunately left one of my cell phones in a chair in the lobby. Elaine at the front desk immediately tried to contact the person in charge of our group about the missing phone. When I was able to get in touch with her the following day, she went out of her way to be helpful and accommodating and get my phone back to me. It's always a very pleasant surprise when customer service goes above and beyond.

We were in town for three nights for a church conference and enjoyed our stay so much that we plan to stay here again next year. We loved having a kitchen to cook most of our meals while here. There is a two burner range, toaster, microwave, fridge, coffee pot and dishwasher. We were missing a few forks and spoons but the staff gave us replacements when requested. In fact the staff bent over backwards to fulfill our requests and always greeted us when we passed through the lobby. This hotel doesn’t have daily maid service but we didn’t mind setting our trash in the hall or asking for fresh towels when needed. The beds were perfect, shower spray great and the bathroom was roomy. It was perfect for us.

We stayed here on the way back from a playoff game in Many,LA. The rate was reasonable. The room was clean and nice. The hotel employees were great and the check in process was flawless. I definitely would recommend.

We came out from Texas an Evacuee of Hurricane Harvey, and since we've arrived here, we've received the best service ever. Every employees and Employers have been so compassionate and caring to all of our needs! Very nice and pleasing and I recommend this hotel to everyone!

My mother-in-law and I stayed here for a few nights on business and the people were very helpful and always had positive attitudes. I would recommend this place to everyone. The staff makes you feel at home and very welcome!

I am writing this after only being here for 5 days. I will be here for about 3 month. I felt necessary to review this property now. I am very pleased so far with my stay. I am here on business and should be her for over three months. So far I am very pleased with everything about this property. The people are very nice and helpful. The rooms are wonderful. I am in a suite and find it to be excellent in every way so far.

Very friendly staff. Rooms smell delicious and there is a kitchen in the room.. not just a microwave. Laundry is free and the gym is pretty impressive compared with other hotels. I'm a flight attendant, so I have been around in a few hotels.

Very good place to stay if you are spending more than the night. Comfortable, clean, and quiet. The staff is very welcoming and cordial. Highly recommended. It does have cooking facilities in the room. I would use my own paper plates etc. Does not have a hot breakfast. They do offer microwave meals and so forth for sale.

The hotel is located in an easy to find spot, is exceptionally clean well cared for. The room was spotless, and the staff was friendly and knowledgeable. There is a Bar-B-Q area next to the main building which is clean and very useful as well as a putting green for those so inclined.

Very decent suits, spacious and with a nice kitchen. Bathroom is average. In-room wifi is complementary. Friendly staff makes the stay more pleasant. There's a common bbq, and a putting range just next to the hotel.
