4/10 Fair

Not allowed to stay
My wife and I frequently visit Athens to see our daughter who attends UGA. We booked this hotel through and upon arrival were told they are not supposed to accept people who live within 50 miles of the hotel, we live 48 miles away, and that next tome we would not be allowed to stay. Well then...looks like this asinine policy just cost you 2 customers. There are too many hotels to choose from to stay at a place where our money is apparently not good. Dumb people make dumb rules.

The staff was friendly and check in was good. The smell in our room and In the hallway was unbearable. We left early and moved to a different hotel.

Pet-friendly, comfortable, great staff
Very pet-friendly which was perfect. Like the mini studio apartment feel to it. Bed was comfortable. Staff was friendly and helpful. Was there for a family emergency and the staff was accommodating to our needs.

10/10 Exceptional

Staff is awesome! Very pet friendly.
Staff was a helpful and friendly. I spoke to Virginia during the process of booking the room. I explained to her that I was there for my mom who was dying in hospice. I told her I didn’t know how many days I’d be there. I needed information of the pet policy. Virginia was so helpful. She asked if I am an IHG member which I am so the pet fee was adjusted. I find the pet policy to be very fair and accommodating. The pet area was great. The little store/pantry was very convenient. The bed was comfortable. The little kitchen was nice. We will still at Candlewood Hotels in the future, especially because of the excellent pet policy.

I thought it was great that everything that we needed was in the room, such as refrigerator, microwave, and sink. I’m sorry but the beds really stink! Staff was really great and rooms were clean.
