Located near downtown Knoxville, this hotel is also near the University of Tennessee. Pets are welcome at this hotel too so there is no need to leave any four legged family members at home. The spacious suites feature a separate living room area and a kitchenette with a full size refrigerator, microwave oven, stovetop, dishwasher and pots and pans. A flat screen television can also be found along with a DVD player. Complimentary Wi-Fi access can be found within the suites so there is no concern for kids or adults about staying connected to work, home or school. The small fitness center with cardio and weight machines is a great place for families who like to stay on top of workout routines while traveling. And the guest laundry facilities are ideal for those who do not wish to take home any dirty clothes.

Stayed for two nights this past week. Hotel was clean and quiet; rooms spacious and the bed was comfy. Our room had a fridge, microwave and small two-burner stove. Front desk was always friendly. The hotel has a large laundry room with an attached gym. Our only 'problem' was you can hear everything in the room above you, but this is kinda typical in hotels so we didn't complain about it. Would stay here again.

As always when traveling, my husband and I book with Candlewood Suites, however this time I'm traveling alone. As usual Candlewood Suites is our go to place to stay when out on the road, as I titled my review, "Just like Coming Home" is exactly what this place is. I was greeted with a huge smile by April, the desk clerk for the evening. She was friendly and efficient. I was checked in and in my room in no time. This was a short visit so we decided to use our reward points for my stay, I did have to pay for two nights during my time here and it was a crossover with points and cash, somehow during booking, my husband had missed a day but Janet, morning clerk - I believe this is her name, helped me correct this. She went out of her way to see that my stay was uninterrupted. I've met others here at Candlewood Suites who have done the same to make my visit comfortable, Johnny, Debbie, Steven and three others (they were the maids on 3rd floor - a young girl and older woman and gentlemen overnight night clerk - I do laundry late at night so others can use washers and dryers during day. All were friendly and efficient. If I passed one of them they always ask me if I needed anything. The hotel was always clean and well maintained. If you travel and want to book where you feel at home this is the hotel to stay at. Candlewood Suites is always our go to place to stay.
