Verified Reviews of Candlewood Suites Buffalo Amherst An Ihg Hotel

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Sadly Unimpressed"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
Our room layout was great, but maintenance was less than expected. The coffee maker had the wrong sized pot (which started the day out with a mess all over and three tries to figure out how to make a pot of coffee), the kitchen floor had visible dirt all over and after wearing my socks around the room while we unpacked, they were badly soiled. Many things needed fixing (rug, central island), but most concerning was the water stains on the shower ceiling with what looked like clear signs of mold. Staff was great, but everything needs a good cleaning and some attention.
