Candlewood Suites - Temple Medical Center2.5 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
We recently stayed at Candlewood and it was our first visit. We were pleasantly surprised. The attention to detail was excellent. We were also surprised at how quiet it was. The A/C was very quiet and efficient. The beds were firm but comfortable, a couple of the pillows felt like feather and the other two were foam I think. There was a nice lightweight feather comforter on the bed along with damask sheets that were super soft. Everything was super clean. The bathroom was clean and the towels were some of the best and thickest I have seen in any hotel we have been in. There were plenty of them, an adequate supply and more can be requested if needed. The kitchen was superb. There is a two burner stove top. Included are pans, pan lids, dishes, glassware, eating and cooking utensils, paper towels, salt and pepper, plastic food storage containers, a full size fridge with a great ice maker, a large microwave, and a dishwasher. Dish washing liquid is provided to hand wash and dish washing powder is stored in a small packet in the dishwasher for use when you need it. There is a nice size closet with wooden hangers and a laundry basket! The outlets for your electronics is at desk height so no crawling under tables to find an outlet. I can't think of an amenity that was lacking. This was such a clean and comfortable place to stay, we felt at home and felt like we could stay for several days very happily. We will be back and glad to do so. The staff was very professional, warm, and welcoming. We highly recommend Candlewood.
Love this place. It's very clean and they are very helpful. Have stayed their multiple times. It's the only place we will stay when in Temple,Texas. The one in Corpus Christi is also a nice place to stay.
I found this hotel to be ****"four stars" **** while staying here 2 different times in one week . Also... it's super close to Scott White Hospital. I base the "4-star" rating on the very comfortable bed, the friendliness of staff, and overall cleanliness and comfort of hotel. The rooms are also very large, and my room's bath was almost sparkling.... The hotel is undergoing some renovations, but those did not cause noise while I was there -- it's mostly new furniture, and a new sign out front, I think. Definitely recommend this hotel.... It's in a great location -- close to restaurants, a grocery store, some fast food, and of course -- close to Scott White Hospital. Also, you can take a road that takes you south , and connect to the Loop, so you don't have to drive around the busy Scott White Hospital area , when driving to a restaurant. One problem, my room's icemaker was not working (gave it 2 days), and so check your fridge when you arrive, it that's important to you. The A/C was great. Hotel also has a "Pantry" room that offers all kinds of soft drinks, juices, and snacks, and sandwiches. Items can be taken to front desk, and cost is just added to your room. Free coffee, too. Rate is about $15 less than its sister property, Holiday Inn, across the street. No breakfast. Very friendly people handle the front desk, and I definitely can recommend Candlewood.
While this property is currently undergoing some renovations, my business stay here at Candlewood Suites in Temple was extremely comfortable and pleasant. Nice amenities at a great value. The air conditioning in my room was not operating properly, but it wasn't a big deal since the dog days of summer are still a few months ahead. The best part of this visit, however, had to be my favorite front desk person of all time, China. I love the way she makes you feel at home and welcome when you first arrive off of a 2 1/2 hour drive....or an 8-hour day with a client. Candlewood is very fortunate to have her on their team! Location's ideal and property is clean.
Stayed at this location after wife had surgery. Very close to the hospital. The staff was able to get us in a room early after her release from the hospital. This alone makes this hotel a for sure repeat when in the area. Room was very nice and clean. Hotel had a wheel chair that we were able to use and made it much easier. Thanks for a great stay.
Stayed one night...room was clean and just had fresh carpet installed! Bathroom didn't have a fan to help with humidity after showers, though. Kitchenette was handy for dinner leftovers and easy breakfast. Front desk was quick with check-in and answering questions. Only down side was carpet installers working in rooms around us...fortunately they left about 6pm and didn't return until 9am.
Stayed here visiting friends in the area. Staff very nice. Room was great. Had a little smell like something had been burned while cooking, also cleaning smell in hallway a bit strong. The chair in room was very worn needs replacing but wasn't an issue. Also they should have a paper list of channels is much easier to look at then the on screen menu.
From the moment we walked in we were greeted by a super friendly and happy receptionist, Chyna(?). The room was clean and big. The view was weird (dirt and green water) but everything else was good. They don't clean your room everyday so that's the only issue.
Very clean, super friendly staff. The rooms aren't traditional suites with separate living rooms, but they are very spacious for 2. I read some reviews that stated they were disappointed because of the size, but I think they were traveling with 3 to 4 people. The kitchens are extremely nice, big with all appliances,updated, and fully stocked. Very nice for extended stay or if you just don't want to eat out. My only gripe is that the kitchen 'cupboard ' where you can purchase snacks, lunch/dinner and breakfast, was a little lacking in the breakfast area. Seemed to have more options for dinner, but not a lot of choices for the morning. That was really the only thing I could find wrong, our over all stay was awesome. Would definitely stay here again especially when more than a couple of days.
Typical Candlewood, very clean and spacious room. Staff is friendly and fairly quiet place to stay at. The bed was comfortable and hard to get out of in the morning!! Being on the road as long as we are I totally love the free laundry room they have for guest.
