Ready to Make Candlewood Suites Your Home Away From Home?

As part of the Pets Are Welcome (PAW) community, Candlewood Suites caters to pet owners in need of long-term accommodations. Whether staying a couple of nights or a few weeks, the hotel chain knows pets are an important member of the family and is committed to welcoming them with open arms at the majority of locations. The standard Candlewood Suites pet policy permits one or two pets up to 80 lbs for an additional fee of $75 for stays up to six nights, and $150 for longer stays. However, individual properties may choose to charge a nightly fee instead, or include a weight restriction as part of their policy.

In addition to spacious pet-friendly suites, Candlewood Suites offers a variety of quality perks to ensure guests have everything they need during their stay. These include fully equipped kitchens, the Candlewood Cupboard lobby market, outdoor grills, laundry facilities and on-site fitness centers. Select locations may also feature designated pet relief walking areas with waste stations. Once you find a Candlewood Suites to your liking, you can browse our site or mobile app to search pet-friendly Candlewood Suites properties around the country that will accommodate you and your furry companions. And we do all the legwork for you. Our Canine Concierge team contacts the hotel to confirm the assignment of a pet-friendly room and can even help with any exceptions or special requests that you may have (like asking the manager to waive a weight limit or accept other animals in addition to dogs and cats).

Remember that when you book with BringFido, you enjoy the benefit of our Pet Friendly Guarantee, and you’ll never pay a booking fee. When you're ready to make a reservation, save time and book online or call us at 877-411-3436 to speak to one of our friendly agents. Either way, our service is free.

Candlewood Suites Pet Policy

The majority of Candlewood Suites locations accept two dogs or cats up to 80 lbs for an additional non-refundable fee between $75 to $150 depending on length of stay. Select properties may limit pets to a maximum of one, charge a lower pet fee or impose specific weight restrictions. Pets are generally permitted to be left unattended in rooms as long as they are crated, but owners are responsible if their pet is disruptive to other guests.
