At arrival the key given to us was for someone else's room. We had to wait for a while until they figure out what happened without an apology. We were given a room with a queen bed, our reservation said king.
Clean and functional extended stay hotel. Room was very roomy with fridge, small cook top, and microwave.
The facility was very nice. The amenities in the hotel and the room were great. The kitchen was the nicest one I have seen in any similar hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful.
My husband and I spent one day at this Hotel, we got a room with a small kitchen, it was very clean. Bed was very comfortable, and staff was very nice. I would recommend this location for any couple, single or families. ;)
My wife and I had the most comfortable stay at this hotel. The staff were all very pleasent and most helpful. Facilities and amenities were exellent. We will gladly stay at Candlewood Suites Athens again.
From the moment of our arrival, we were very impressed with the Candlewood Suites. It is located a bit west of downtown, but not far from the Georgia Mall. The only decent hotels near downtown and the UGA campus tend to be very pricey, but you can have an excellent quality room at an affordable rate for a ten-minute ride on Atlanta Highway. The staff, facilities, and rooms are top quality. We can live without a pool or a fancy restaurant, so we'll pocket the savings from staying at Candlewood and use it to have a nice dinner downtown when we're back in Athens.
My suite was so nice! Queen bed, recliner, desk, extra seating, decent sized flat screen, DVD player, kitchenette with full sized microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, dishes and utensils, etc. My only complaint isn't on the hotel itself, but a group decided the lobby was a good place to congregate one night and they were very loud (which is a problem at many hotels...what is with these people that wander around hotels at night? Common courtesy, people!). Also, the room above me was apparently rented out to a herd of elephants. I was on the first floor though, so I recommend getting a room on the top floor if possible. Then I'm sure your stay will be perfect.
I stayed at the Candlewood for two nights and it was definitely somewhere that I would stay again. The room was huge and very clean. The staff at the front desk was incredibly helpful. We had a great time staying here and if I ever get back to Athens, I'll be staying there again.
Found this relatively new, clean, comfortable hotel for a reunion trip. While it's outside town on highway to Atlanta, well worth the extra few minutes to get there.
The hotel is either new or newly remodeled. The rooms were spacious with a large desk and a very comfortable bed. The kitchennette was small but clean, and the bathroom was clean as well.
The air conditioning did not work in the first room they gave me, so had to change rooms. In the second one I was greeted by a rather large roach. No, don't think I'll stay there again.
Wonderfully comfortable room, super kitchen setup worked great for eating in since we were trying to save a buck. Front desk is not manned continually so initial check-in was a little slow.
