Government employee and I stay in many hotels across the year. Stayed here for a week and must say I was impressed by just about everything.

Candlewood is a staple for those staying for an extended period. Full kitchen, so you can prepare your own meals rather than having to eat out every day. Staff is very good and will help with any questions or needs you may have.

I travel a lot with my job. Most hotels have a very sterile feel to them. The staff at Candlewood Suites from the Director of Sales, Jeannie Booker to Guest Services Manager, Mikel Sweeten and all the support staff went above and beyond to make it feel like home. It was truly the best experience I have ever had at...

I left this place feeling like I'd stayed at an old fashioned bed and breakfast. My room was reasonably priced, so I was surprised to find that it included a kitchen. Seriously, a fridge, dishwasher, stove, sink, utensils. The staff welcomed my dog and I with a very small pet deposit (I think it was $20). There's also a great...

My family and I stayed in the Fort Smith Candlewood Suites on Saturday Dec 10th for one night.

The workers are what really makes this a great place to stay-always friendly, quick to help. The room was kept very clean by the staff. My only complaint is I wish they had an outside seating area that was non smoking. Would definitely come back!

We stayed in this hotel last night after a razorback football game. Jessica was great at check in. So friendly and fast.
