Went to visit my son who was graduating from boot camp. Found out that we had an extra day so had to scramble to find a hotel. Talked to Tricia at Candlewood Suites and she looked up my frequent travel number and held the room for us. The room was fantastic and she even suggested a restaurant nearby which turned out to be a diamond in the rough. Excellent choice Tricia. Later that night my grandson had an upset stomach and ended up leaving a mess on our personal king size blanket. The complimentary washers did the job but the dryers really couldn't handle that size of a blanket. Tricia allowed me to use the heavy duty dryer used for the hotels linens. Worked perfectly. She had it drying while we spent the day with our son. Came back and loaded everything up and headed out back to Texas. Thank you Tricia for making a hectic day turn out beautiful. Will stay here again next time I come through.
Me and my husband had a recent short stay at this hotel, and were very pleased. Even though we did not have a need to the kitchen, I thought it was very well stocked with dishes and even plenty of supplies if the dish washer was needed. There were a few machines not working in the fitness center, but there was still enough equipment to compensate for that. The young lady at the front desk was very courteous and helpful. I would have no problem staying at this hotel again if it becomes necessary.
If I could give this hotel zero stars, I would. When we arrived a woman was bringing her dirty bedsheets to the front desk to ask for clean ones. When we arrived in our room, a cockroach crawled across the floor and the carpet was disgusting and covered in stains. We went down to the front desk and were given a new room. The next room had a leaking vent and did not appear any cleaner. The front desk staff was very friendly and accommodating, but we didn't stay the night. We were too grossed out. The location of the hotel is not in the safest of neighborhoods either. AVOID AT ALL COSTS.
We stayed at candlewood while a repair was done to our house. The guest services lady was nice enough to bring me up some tea bags as well as pop me a bag of popcorn since our microwave was not working. They stay was excellent.
The hotel is situated partway between downtown Columbus and Fort Benning in a somewhat seedy side of town. The hotel is clean and safe, the staff was helpful. There is a 24/7 little convenience store on site that has a small drugstore and groceries. Free coffee. The suites have a small kitchen, and a few extras like a full length mirror, a closet and hooks to hang out the next days clothes, wall mounted thermostats that are calibrated to temperature settings, adequate towels, extra toilet and facial tissue, a recliner in front of the TV and a small desk/dining area.
The neighborhood around this hotel is not great. Walking my dog was a problem. Fortunately there is a dog park a few miles away. We had to wait for our room for almost 2 hours because housekeeping folks called in sick. Quite annoying.
We evacuated to this hotel because of Hurricane Matthew. The staff was friendly and the hotel interior was pretty clean. BUT the furniture was dated and worn, bags of garbage were left in the hall for a full day, and the dog walk area was never picked up. The neighborhood where it is located is sketchy at best, but we didn't feel unsafe except for one night when there was a lot of yelling in the pool area. Overpriced for the quality of the accommodations.
Nice stay in a clean suite with a simple, furnished kitchen and a large bathroom with a bathtub. Convenient to many restaurants, and not far from downtown Columbus. Nice amenities. Limited housekeeping for short stays, but towels can be changed at the desk. Price seemed high considering they do not offer free breakfast or daily housekeeping. Furniture was comfortable, but our desk chair was peeling fake leather. I will consider staying with the chain again, but I hope for more competitive prices.
This is a great place to stay while visiting Fort Benning. The front desk attendants were all great, but Theresa was kind beyond measure. My daughter and I drove up from Florida and arrived very late. Theresa was friendly, and very good to both of us. Thank you.
Everyone is very nice and always smiling and very helpful. The room was very clean. I would give it a 10 on the review if it would let me.It's a excellent place to stay. I didn't won't to leave but I have to go back home.
