Candlewood Suites Las Vegas
Travel Blogs from Las Vegas
The day started off as usual, I was up at 4:30 and everyone else was asleep.....that is until Auntie Chuck decided to call the house like at 5am. That's ok though, my kids do well with just a few hours of sleep. No, really, they do . Mom slept in until about 8:00am, and Shannon went for a short jog around the block (9 miles). Soooo, around 8:30 I …

We were there for awhile and decided to head to Bellagio. We changed into flat shoes and headed off to the Bellagio to gamble. We never made it and walked to the end of the strip to get MacDonalds.

Historical Traveler Reviews Candlewood Suites Las Vegas
We stayed here in August, and thought it was fantastic, excellent facilities, clean, lovely big room, helpful staff and convenient for the 'strip' whilst quiet and restful at night. A great place to stay.
Great place to stay
Stayed here on July 16,17. Great room esp. for the money. Microwave, fridge, stove all included. Rooms clean and motel Nice and quiet. A little ways from the strip, but in a good location.
The best place in Las Vegas to avoid smoky rooms
I stayed there for three days. It was a little far from the main street. But it did not matter to us because all casinos allowed us to park. The room was so spacious and clean. The suite had a laudary room which was free except soap (1$). On wednesday, there was an outdoor hot-dog party which was free (I don't know what it is called because I am a foreigner). I had a great time there.
We just arrived back from Las Vegas. We had a reservation at the Candlewood Suites for Saturday night. We were originally going to stay in Vegas from Sunday to Wednesday but the airfare was much cheaper if we stayed over a Saturday night. So I searched and found a rate of $59 a night at the Candlewood. The Candlewood was quiet, had nice parking available and had a lot of great features! We only had a reservation there for Saturday night as we already had reservations at the Rio for the rest of our stay but we wished we would have stayed longer. The pool was available to us 24 hours a day, you just had to swipe your room key to get in! With it being 105 degrees while we were there we wanted to spend a lot of time by the pool. They also had a large bin of towels available right next to the pool. (We later found out that The Rio's pool was only open until 6pm) While the Candlewood is a big hotel, you don't have to carry your luggage throughout a large casino like most of the other hotels. (We had a rental car so driving to the strip was no problem just a short 10 minute drive. There were also a few casinos within walking distance as well.) The store in the lobby was great! They had Coke products for 25 cents a can and lots of other snacks, beverages and foods that you can make in your room. Our room was nice sized and had a full kitchenette with a full size fridge and an ice maker as well. Bathroom was nice as well. I have read that some people were unhappy that they don't offer daily housekeeping, but we found that a benefit. We would prefer not to have someone visiting our room while we aren't there and we didn't mind taking our towels downstairs to have them replaced. After comparing our two stays during this visit to Vegas, we have decided that we will stay at the Candlewood the next time we visit Vegas.
We choose Candlewood because it was "sister hotel" as the Staybridge Suites were we always had a great time..We spend 3 day at the candlewood, 1st night we smell cigarette smoke in our non smoking room, it turns out our "neighbore" next room was a heavy smoker, and the smell comes pass though the bathroom exhaust. We told the front desk, and he said there is nothng they can do even though that was a non smoking floor/room, we had to pack & switch the room in the middle of night,. Now, if you are in vegas for vacation, you will hate the fact that you have to bring your dirty towel to the front in order to get a new one, there is no room service, your room wont get clean unless you check out(they said once a week, I assume if you stay at least a week), you take out your own trash, you will have to pay to get a new coffe refilled in your room, they dont offer breakfast as many suite does....etc, it does feel like staying at a apartment rather than a hotel/suite. But if you are there for long term stay/business, this place sure saves you money, and is right across all mayor restaurants ( Starbucks!)..We love their video library(alot of new realease!) & the cheap convenience 24 value store in the lobby. The ladies in the front desk are very friendly, but the daytime guys has a attitude...Overall, for vacation, choose some where else, LAs vegas has too many hotel to choose, for business, very nice & quiet place away from the noice in order to get some work done...
Excellent for business travelers
I just finished 5 nights here while working a show at the Sands (20 minute brisk walk). I really like this hotel, the staff is very friendly and helpful, the big hotels could take a lesson from the people here. There have to be at least a dozen good (and some excellent) restaurants within a very short walking distance. We never waited more than 5 minutes for a cab after the front desk called. The rooms were well maintained and comfortable and quiet.
Loved the Candlewood
This place is awesome. They have free movies to check out, free washers and dryers, nice fitness room, and nice quiet rooms. I would definitely stay here next time I am in Las Vegas.
A comforable stay
We recently stayed at the Candlewood Suites and liked it very much. It is not on the Strip which is great for people looking for a non-gaming, quiet hotel. The suite was a bit small but comfortable and clean. It was one of the most quiet hotels we have ever stayed at. It was great to come back to our hotel room after experiencing the noisy and vivid environment of Vegas for several hours. The hotel staff was polite and helpful. This hotel has even have a variety of movies you can check out from the front desk-free! They donot have room cleaning everyday which I actually liked-privacy. If you need extra towels, soap, etc. you just ask the front desk. If I travel to Vegas, I would stay at the Candlewood again.
Stayed here on a business trip and found it to be one of the best deals in Vegas. The "executive studio" size room is good for 1-2 people.The kitchenette had full-size appliances (refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, stove) and there's a large work desk.Room facing the street are a bit noisy due to traffic. Small pool and jacuzzi are OK, but not plush. Bonus: food pantry stocked with drinks, junk food, frozen food is run on the "honor system."If you're attending a conference at the LV Convention Center this is an excellent location. It's possible to walk to the Convention Center if you're in shape, or just a short drive away. The strip and other Vegas attractions are just a few blocks away.Interestingly, they don't clean rooms daily, citing that they respect guests' privacy. It's clearly a cost-cutting measure, but not a major problem on a short stay.If you're looking for a non-gaming business hotel, this is a great option.
Great Deal Esp for Swimmers!
I love this place because, unbelievably, it's one of the few places in vegas where you can get in the pool or hot tub 24 hrs a day. Clean, fairly quiet during the times I've stayed here, full kitchen in-room, laundry, pay-as-you-go food pantry, and just a short hop to the strip [about same distance from the strip as the Hard Rock].
