    Experience with dog excellent. Accommodations great. However, after multiple tries and much confusion on part of Domino Pizza “they do not deliver to Candlewood”. Please advise future residents staying here.

    Near interstate

    Rooms a good size and great grassy area for pets. Not a great location, but worked for a night.

    Okkkkkkk …🥴

    I booked my room through BringFido. Should have been a room with two double beds but when I arrived I was told the only room available was a king room - very awkward having to share the bed with a male friend. Was not happy. The area seemed “ok” … I would NOT choose this hotel a second time around. Candlewood Sweets Pensacola. Front desk stay was not what I experienced at other hotels along the road (AZ to FL). Party going on in the back corner of the parking lot 🤷🏻‍♀️ extremely loud music playing from 4 different vehicles. I will plan my next trip to stop before or after this location. The staff was going to charge me the higher price for the double room but I complained and was given the double room rate ( which was less than a king suite).

    Nice room, pet friendly

    Ok, so the ugly. I booked thru BringFido and wow what a cluster it was when I arrived at the hotel. They did not have my correct room and they were sold out of the room that I wanted . They told me to not book via Bringfido/Travelocity or whatever he said again. The manager said just call the hotel and book because they keep having issues with third party booking. Huh??? No dog treats-no problem-we brought our own.

    The area itself has a lot of people that are panhandling during the day and appear to be homeless, but nowadays they could just be tax cheaters, they were not near the hotel and it was not concerning. You can’t go anywhere without panhandling people. The strip mall next to the hotel is not really a shop-able strip mall so don’t bother. The good stuff: the hotel is very clean and so was the room. Also the hotel was quiet and there was plenty of green area for taking your dog potty. All of the staff seemed very happy and friendly towards my very beautiful poodle. Air conditioning was on point cause it was hot as hell outside! Lots of sand around so watch out for the sand spurs that your furbaby can pick up in Florida. You will know it when they start picking up a foot all of a sudden. We tried to book here on our way back but they were sold out. The biggest ugly thing about the hotel is the price. This hotel is the most expensive in the area and really has no extra amenities. It lost a bone because of no treats and the whole check in snafu which really irked me. I know hotels hold back rooms so really???

    Excellent place for both us and puppy dogs

    The room was spacious enough for the 4 of us; clean and comfortable and very quiet considering there were several other dog families near our room - we never heard them. Pet walking area and lots of walking around. Would stay here again.

    Great place to stay

    The room was very clean and so comfortable. It was my first hotel stay with my pup and I was surprised we were put on the 3rd floor. But it all worked out fine. I felt very safe walking around after dark since the outdoor space was very well lit. Staff was very friendly!

    Great stay

    We needed a place after a full day of travel. This place was very clean, safe with a large area fir walking the dogs. I’d stay here again.

    Clean room, we had everything we needed for a 5 day stay

    Full kitchen in the room, had everything we needed, comfortable beds with both firm & soft pillow choices, staff & housekeeping were all very friendly & helpful. They exchanged our towels and supplies whenever we asked. There were a lot of Duke Energy workers staying there working on tree trimming in the area, so the hotel was very busy, but it was quiet at night and everyone was pleasant and respectful about using the elevators during the pandemic.

    Great stay!

    Fido was happy with the potty areas including trees surrounding the hotel. We were all happy with the exceptional roominess of the studio suite, which we selected because we were staying for 5 days. We were close to the beaches so Fido had a romp in the warm surf daily. Warning, remember to get a toy that floats.

    Great hotel for pet owners

    We loved staying here. The room was spacious and well-appointed. Everything was a little step up from a normal hotel room. They have a full kitchen (2 burner stove), dishes, silverware, pots, and pans. You could make a meal here. The bed was comfortable. The shower/tub is big with a high shower head. the desk is long with plenty of space for your laptop. Plenty of outlets as well. It was quieter than most hotels I have stayed at. They have a pet walking area right outside the door. We stayed in room 129 and it was the closet to the door.
    The thing that might worry some that I saw is that the neighborhood has seen better days and there were some homeless people in the shopping center next door.
    The hotel is reasonably priced so it seems a lot of construction crews stay there so there were guys in the parking lot socializing at night, but it was not loud or intrusive.
    I would be really happy to stay there the next time were in that area.

    Great place to stay

    The room was clean and a great size. The kitchenette was a great bonus, as we were able to still prepare food for the dogs. It was a quiet place to stay so the dogs did not bark every few minutes because of noise.
