Recent guest reviews

The lobby was undergoing some remodeling but not really a problem.A convenient location to the highway for traveling or visiting the Corvette museum and many restaurants nearby. The suite was good size and I would recommend the upgrade to anyone. It was nice to have a full refrigerator as well as separate living area.

We enjoyed a comfortable suite with pets allowed but without the amenities that we find in some hotels like included breakfast. Apparently there had been an antique car show in the area and some of those car owners were so proud of their vehicles that they decided they had to show off their loud motors by racing around the parking lot in the middle of the night--waking us from our sleep and scaring the dog.

I chose this hotel as one with a good price and within an hour of my ultimate location, Hopkinsville, where I was going for the eclipse. Might have waited a bit long for clearance at work to get something closer, but this location still worked for me. If there was an initial issue, it was finding it based on the directions I had from Google maps, but that is not the property's fault. I think they had done some recent renovating as well as there were construction dumpsters in the parking lot. But those I can overlook as well as long as I can find parking. Upon visiting the front desk we were greeted with a gift of eclipse glasses for the two of us in the party and a Moonpie - yes, they were ready for the eclipse. The room was quite nice with a full-size refrigerator, sink, cabinets with plates, etc. for cooking meals in the room (nice for longer stays), and a cooktop. The bed was quite comfortable and as I find in many of the IHG properties I stay in, a shower that can definitely power off any worries you might have. Though we did not take advantage of other amenities because we were using this as a central point from which to do some additional touring before the big event, I would definitely come back to this property in the future.

Stayed here using my IHG points. They treat their loyalty customers right. They upgraded me and the room did not disappoint. Nice beds, wonderful pillows, best bath towels and a great staff. BUT, something I have written about before, the full size refridgerator is noisey. It is certainly nice to have that big fridge, but when it sits less than ten foot away it makes too much noise for me. Yes, I am extra sensative to noise and as a result I found myself being awakened multiple times. When that compressor was off, the room was very quite. I would have unplugged the unit if I could have moved it. Needless to say I did not rest well. I am considering not staying at Candlewood Suites just for that reason. That would be a shame as overall their properties are excellent but what good do they do me if I can't rest?

We happened upon this hotel while en route to Florida. 4 adult women found we had a load of counter space to place all our belongings. Clean, bright, super comfortable beds, bedding, & pillows. Staff was very friendly. We were quite impressed by the entire experience. On return from Florida we made sure we stopped at same place again.

This hotel was a welcome respite after attending my Dads funeral in Elizabethtown. The suite was modern, fresh and comfy. My son slept on the pull out sofa. The staff was especially accommodating. Highly recommend!

Upon checking in I asked if we could have 10 extra minutes in pool since it was 945 and it closed at 10. My son had been in the car and I wanted him to get a little fun in prior to going to bed. I was told by front desk clerk that there was no wiggle room and he would be closing it at 10. I asked him if that was a smart thing to tell a guest when we just checked in. He said he would let us stay the 2 minutes while he removed towels. Ah ok. We stayed until we were done. I didn't ask to stay late. We just did it because I knew he wouldn't want to argue with me. See my review for the hotel in Kansas last summer. The manager not only opened the pool early for us, but asked us what else he to make our stay more pleasant... THAT is hospitality! Checked into the room which smelled like smoke. When I told the same front desk agent, his solution was a near empty bottle of Febreeze. Ah ok. Lazy? I'm not sure. I guess I was expecting a different room. Sorry when checking out I let the front desk agent (lady) know... She apologized and said by no means was he required to "kick you out at 10". Rooms were clean. Lot of remodeling stuff in the hallways, side entrance, driveway, etc. I probably won't stay here again although it is exactly 1/2 way to Florida. If it was a dollar more, I would have done more than say I wasn't thrilled. PS: please note they do not have breakfast. I didnt look for it before reserving... I just expected a hotel I spent $100 to have a breakfast.

We had an exceptional experience at this hotel. The front desk associate was extreamly friendly and handled his responsibilities very professionally. The room was spotless, comfortable, and very quiet. We ran into one of the housekeeping staff on our way out who was very friendly and held the door open for us. I am not impressed with service very often anymore but the staff at this hotel went above and beyond

We were in a newly remodeled room, very nice spacious room. Hotel is on par with other suite hotels (home2, town place suites) we have stayed in in the last few weeks. Staff was pleasant and helpful. Nice location for Corvette museum and factory tour. WiFi was very very slow but otherwise good stay

Even though it was under remodeling at the time of my stay, I was very pleased with this hotel. Great location at Scottsville Road near I-65 and close to where I was doing business at the Knicely Conference Center. Wonderful spacious room with terrific desk/workspace area, well-equipped kitchen area, and nice roomy bathroom with plenty of counterspace. If felt like a shame that I was only staying one night as this was almost big enough to be an apartment to live in. Everything was new and clean. The front desk people were extremely polite and nice. I would stay here again.
