Not right off the main highway, so a little difficult to find. You can tell that a lot of people working in the area stay here by all the company trucks in the lot. Staff was friendly. Pet-friendly room was clean and in decent shape.

My family stayed at Candlewood Suites due to my father having surgery at Rapides Regional Medical Center. Elaine greeted me when I went to check in and was very helpful in putting my brother's room (separate reservation) across the hall from my room. Then, the next day when I needed to get a room for my sister and her family Elaine was again very helpful in getting their room close to the rest of the family and even letting them check in early. We couldn't have asked for a nicer person in Elaine. The rooms were very clean and had no issues.

Phenomenal place to call home while away for work. Staff is terrific and couldn't be more pleased. Beds are very comfortable, rooms clean and the even have little foods in the evening. Easy in and out so what better place.

Stayed here by chance due to Holiday Inn not honoring my online reservation while traveling thru on way to Alabama. Friendly, accommodating staff and clean rooms. Would definitely stay there again in the future.
