Keith B wrote a review Apr 2022
Wayne, Michigan

Had a mix of business and pleasure in Fort Wayne. Decided to stay here instead of New Haven where I usually go. Hotel is in a business complex, but you aren’t far from the many stores and restaurants around Lima Road, and downtown is a short drive away.

Hotel is typical Candlewood- kitchen in room, lending library movies and games in lobby, satellite TV, and comfortable bed. Slept well.

I did briefly use the indoor pool, but it was so cold outside (low teens by evening and a cold morning) the water didn’t feel inviting after being out. As with most Candlewoods there is a small area outside for a barbecue, but it was too cold to even consider that.

Check in and check out was smooth too. Lately I have been varying my hotel locations when in Fort Wayne, and this one has made the rotation.

A group of us came to Fort Wayne for a women’s conference! Our rooms were booked in April with our credit cards and we had confirmation numbers . When we got there two of us were told we had no rooms. Our confirmation numbers meant nothing.

Nice first impression with check-in staff. The room was disappointing - worn furnishings, smelled like someone smoked in the room previously (and the attempt to clean it was only partly successful). Location was convenient for travelling. Average.

My ipad was stolen from my room. Housekeeping only comes once a week, the day they came, my iPad left with them. Management refused to replace it and advised me there has never been a theft at this hotel. In speaking with another guest I learned that he also had things stolen. This tells me honesty isn't a priority for management.

My room was constantly filled with smoke. I informed the hotel staff, thinking they would do something about it, as it's illegal to smoke in any public building in Fort Wayne. Nothing was done, the smell was terrible, and my throat and eyes were burning like crazy.

The WiFi was awful. When I was actually able to connect, it was so slow I wasn't able to do any work.

I travel 75% of the year for work. I stay in lots of hotels all over the country. This was the worst hotel experience I have ever had.

stayed here by recommendation of the IHG customer service lady, rate was $88 state govt rate.....never stayed at a Candlewood, so we gave it a try. Rode up, outside canopy over entrance was falling apart, checked in, got to room, it was clean at least. It was a 1 bedroom suite with the bedroom separate from living room/kitchen. Took a shower, drain didn't drain, bathroom fan inoperative and recliner in living room was broke. the ac/heater operates from a thermostat like most hotels today but the unit was in the living room and to get cool air to the bedroom a small fan (8-10") mounted in the wall at the ceiling height, drew cool air form the other side and then blew it into the bedroom. What the hell is that? You would have to keep the temp set at 60 to even get it to cool to 70 in the bedroom.
I finally complained enough between the night shift girl and the guy working in the am to get my rate dropped $30.............it was still too high, pillows were short and fat. free wifi was pretty pathetic also, very spotty when you would have service. NOT AGAIN WOULD I STAY THERE

The hotel is well maintained and very clean. We arrived very late, but the staff greeted us with a smile. We travelled over Easter weekend, which was very busy. The rates were great for a premium room.

This hotel has ZERO cameras to protect the safety / security of their guests! They have ONE camera facing their locked front office for THEIR safety while the guests are left totally disregarded and on their own.

I WOULDN'T EVEN RECOMMEND THIS HOTEL TO SOMEONE I HATED!!!

Checked in on a Monday afternoon after a four room hunt for a non musty smelly room. Tuesday morning at 1:30 AM the refrigerator motor began screaming as the compressor started to die. Jumped out of bed, found the circuit breaker and shut it down for the rest of the night. Informed the desk staff on the way out about the problem and was told it would be addressed. Got back to the hotel in the afternoon and all was well. Wednesday morning at 3AM it started all over. Shut the breaker off and again incomplete sleep. On the elevator heading off to work I exchanged good mornings with a fellow traveler and mentioned my room problems. She then asked me if I was in room 314. Surprised I said yes. She also had been given this room in the past and said it had the same problem then. I guess this must be the 'sucker' room that people get cause the management sure don't seem to care about. The mattress was also shot. I checked out after 3 days instead of my planned 19. It might be a long time before I stay at a Candlewood again.

In a short answer NO! Candlewood is a part of IC Hotels and your Priority club membership is accepted for your redemption of award nights. Priority Club has a points and cash option to use minimum points for a reward stay supplemented with cash, but they do not charge you a "fee" when you redeem points for a reward stay.
