Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

This was the cleanest property I have ever stayed at. There were plenty of amenities. I absolutely loved my stay it was only for the night but it was great. There is no breakfast at this location however there is coffee and fruit they advised at the desk.

We were in town to visit our son at UWF. It is within a few miles of the university. Plenty of parking and reasonable rates. We had a small kitchenette, and the hotel is pet friendly. The staff was very friendly. We didn't see any evidence of a breakfast provided so it gave us the opportunity to try local spots nearby. The hotel is right off i-10.

Was in town for a week due to business. Not a bad hotel. It appears to be a little older. Room had a mini kitchen which is great if you are traveling with family. Bed was comfortable. Shower and bathroom was clean. Had no complaints. Plenty of parking in July. Might consider staying here if I needed. It was just a regular hotel. Not great but not bad enough to never stay again. No complaints.

Hi Grumpylicous, Thank you for choosing to stay with us on his business trip and sharing your feedback. I trust that all is well. Providing comfortable accommodation is all that we aim for, and I am thrilled that our comfy beds, clean room, and fully equipped kitchen helped you in getting such. I am sorry, however, that we failed to meet your expectation because of the hotel's atmosphere. I welcome your thought on the need for updating. I assure you that your feedback will not go unheard as the Management team has been made aware of your dissatisfaction, and I am sure they will use this as a reference for improvement. I hope you give us the chance to turn things around the next time you stay with us. Stay safe, Glaiza G. Case Manager IHGService

The Candlewood Suites in Pensacola has nice rooms, kitchenettes and makes a relaxing place to stop along a journey. Very impressed with the overall experience, and after a seven hour drive it was a welcome pit stop.

I was impressed by how friendly and professional the front desk staff were. This included Kathy, Jorge, Mike and Sharon. They accommodated my every request, and were very kind. I particularly had extra interaction with Kathy and Jorge. One night, I had to use the bathroom very badly, and went to the men's restroom in the lobby area. It was locked as someone was using it. Kathy was taking a short break right outside the South door and saw me. She pointed to the women's restroom, allowing me to use it. We both had a laugh when I said to her, "You saved me!" Jorge and Kathy made copies of several things I needed, and Jorge gave very good directions to local supermarkets the second night I was there. Complimentary laundry was provided at this hotel, which I very much appreciated. Their pantry had a very nice variety of food and essentials. Parking was never a problem, the fitness room was everything anyone would need and, although I didn't get to use the pool area (with it's grill), it sure looked nice to me. My room had all the amenities anyone would ever need, the bed was great, and this was an ideal place for a busy traveler. I would definitely come back again! Sincerely, Steve

Hotel is nice and clean. Friendly staff. Rates are good. Room had an odor to it. Stayed on 4th floor with bedroom separated from sitting area. Had dogs and cats next door. Door in between rooms was very thin, you could hear neighbors talking clearly and ofcourse dogs barking occasionally. Did not give us enough bath towels for each person. We would still stay here again.

The queen size was very comfortable but we really wanted a king size. The room was very neat and clean. The reason why it did not get 5 stars was because the bathtub was very slippery if you were taking a shower and no bath mat was provided. In addition, the bathroom door locked itself from the inside and we needed it quickly in the night. Since we were in a studio room, we used a butter knife to open it. Pet friendly but it will cost you. I think for the price, breakfast should be included.

I had not stayed in a Candlewood before. I called IHG looking for a dog-friendly room. When we got there, the hotel did not have the dog as part of the reservation but they cheerfully changed the reservation and changed the housekeeping schedule so we could check in early. Room was large with lots of desk space and 2 desk seats. Also had a small kitchen with a dishwasher. The hotel has a decent small gym, free morning coffee and a guest laundry room. Staff were very nice. Room was clean. Bed was comfortable.

We stayed here for a week before hurricane Michael and a week after. We had a one bedroom suite with a kitchenette. Everyone we met was very nice and helpful. Our suite was spotless and we enjoyed the Watkins bath products. Loved the free washer and dryer! There is a small grocery store just across the street for groceries and plenty of restaurants just down the street. Very convenient area. Would stay again!
