Candlewood Suites Oak Harbor

2.5 out of 5.0

I have stayed at many IHG brands the past few years for both business trips and personal travel. I have generally found dependable quality, reasonable prices and exemplary service. This site was no exception. Upon our arrival we were upgraded to a suite instead of a standard room as reserved. The room was well appointed and clean. Our bed was very comfortable and we slept well. I highly recommend this hotel!

We stayed in a suite with a kitchenette in Candlewood Suites Oak Harbor for one night in early June 2017 with two dogs. We found them to be very pet-friendly, charging a nominal fee of $15 for one night for up to two pets. Pet-friendly rooms are available on the first floor, and there was easy access to the pet relief area behind the building. This was a small, grassy, maintained area with a bench, doggy waste bags, and a garbage receptacle. Candlewood Suites aims to provide their extended-stay guests with a convenient, home-like environment, complete with a fitness room, laundry facilities, an outdoor grill, and an extensive DVD selection available to borrow at no cost to guests. The Candlewood Cupboard is a self-serve mini-store near the lobby where guests can purchase snacks, drinks, frozen foods, and basic necessities. Another great concept is the Lending Locker, where guests can borrow items like small kitchen appliances, small hand tools, and even board games. The kitchenette was furnished with enough implements to prepare a simple meal, including a two-burner stove, a microwave, a full size refrigerator, a dishwasher, along with silverware, dishes, a small pot, cooking utensils—even a toaster and a colander. We found our suite to be nicely laid out and roomy, the bed and pillows to be extremely comfortable, and the bathroom clean and spacious. Because Candlewood Suites caters to extended-stay guests, rooms are cleaned weekly instead of daily. However, short stay guests like us are also welcome. The internet connection was good, and the front desk folks were helpful and attentive. Our stay was truly a home-away-from-home experience.

I was staying in 106 and the people in 110 had all kinds of homless looking foot traffic at all hours of the night. There was a strange chemical stench in the hallway it was unbearable. Only stay here if your looking for an encounter with the lower class members of society.

This hotel was a little less than we expected. The room had an old smell that went away when we opened the window. The bed was soft but comfortable and the room was very clean. Nice shower with soft towela. The AC worked well, which was good because the road outside was fairly loud. We took advantage of the in room dishwasher and toaster. The front desk staff member was very nice and helpful. The gym looked decent and free laundry would be a nice perk for those staying longer than just one night. They had games to loan as well as dvd's to borrow. There was a sign saying they has a 24 BBQ available in the back.

I've always heard of this hotel but was hesitant to stay but decided on it this trip and I must say it's the best decision I made. The staff is friendly and helped with all the questions I had. The hotel is clean and well maintained. The hotel is setup like a mini home it has a kitchenette with fully stocked utensils, plates etc all you have to do is grocery shop and start cooking. They have a pantry with coffee and tea and snacks for purchase. I will definitely be using this hotel again.

I just got back from Whidbey Island after staying at the Candlewood Suites in Oak Harbor Wa. Since it was only $20-$30 more than the bottom dollar place in town, I wasn't exactly expecting the PLEASANT surprise awaiting. It features a regular sized refridgerator and freezer (with ice maker), a sink, 2 burner stove, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, and all the pots, pans, glassware and silverware you could possibly need in a week. Then, I saw the Beautiful bed in it's own room with flat screen TV on dresser!! The living room has a couch, coffee table, leather recliner chair, flat screen tv on dresser with large table to spread out and with your laptop or setup dinner. Bath has a Personal shower :) Lovely Clean place with free 24/7 coffee and hot chocolate in lobby with snack type foods and drinks for purchase anytime. Our 2 ada dogs and myself were very HAPPY with our stay and will recommend to our Realtor. As if that's not enough...............Megan at the front desk is just a doll and does everything in her power to make your stay not only comfortable, but welcoming. Thanks Megan!! p.s. seems to be the only place in Oak Harbor with an ELEVATOR!!

Insanely clean rooms, nothing worn down or broken. Super friendly staff (especially the girls at the desk, the young lady that checked me in and the one who was here late last night and again this morning are just fantastic! They're always smiling and super helpful). I really am super cozy in this hotel! The pantry and snack areas are great, too!

Would have been a five if they had honored our room location request. As a Spire Elite IHG member, my profile lists my room preference as first floor or near elevator. We had neither despite booking 6 weeks in advance. If not for that, everything was very nice. Room was spacious and clean. This property was conveniently located in beautiful Oak Harbor on Whidbey Island. I love that Candlewood offers free laundry as we tend to take very long trips. Would definitely recommend!

Nice hotel in Oak Harbor which has spacious rooms and as always with Candlewood suites fully fitted kitchenette to prepare your own food if required. Friendly staff and in general good facilities for short aswell as long term stays

Stayed here while moving to oak harbor and had my cat. When I couldn't find her the staff went above and beyond to help me find her. I like candlewood because of the amenities like complimentary laundry rooms and a consistent service. Always clean and always nice.
