The hotel was perfect. There was a separate bedroom. The living area has a working kitchen , sofa and large TV. There was aTV in the bedroom. The bathroom... More

I've stayed here several times over the years while visiting the MSU campus and attending meetings and am always glad I choose Candlewood. The rooms have been updated recently (new carpet!) and I always have a nice quiet night. Having a kitchenette is a great perk of this nice place.

I had a surprisingly pleasant three night stay. The desk staff in particular one college student who checked me in was exceptionally helpful and pleasant. The room was perfect. Large, well laid out. The kitchenette area useful and equipped. The bedding was comfortable. And the bathroom was clean with sufficient space around the sink for toiletries, etc. I give this... More

Stayed with my sister after a wedding at the nearby MSU facility. Room small but nicely appointed. I was a little dismayed at the lack of upkeep in the facility. Hallways not vacuumed, mars on walls from carts or suitcases. very poor cement in the entry area, and, worst of all, inadequate trash can near back entry door so it... More

Large room with large kitchen area. The bathroom was very nice also. My only problem was the queen bed was against the wall which made it very hard for one of us to get of the bed!

Good extended-stay property very close to the MSU Pavilion. Room was clean with everything I would have needed in the kitchen if I was staying longer. Front desk staff was friendly and let us bring our bicycles up to our room.

If you are looking to save money and be on campus and not be close to anything, then you will like it. Average room with uncomfortable pillows.
