This is our second time staying at this property. I choose to stay at Candlewood Suites mainly because of the full size kitchen and convenient layouts of the rooms. Other positives are the good sized fitness center and the Lending Locker where you can borrow a blender for a morning smoothie.
Athough Minot State University is located in NW Minot, and this hotel is located in SW Minot it is a very easy 8 minute drive along Broadway. Also located on 37th Ave just down a block or two is a Walmart Super Center and a popular restaurant called "Pizza Ranch" which is a buffet of pizzas that younger and older kids will love. Candlewood Suites is located only a mile from Dakota Square Mall where you'll find a selection of stores and restaurants.
Hotel staff are friendly and accommodating. There's a bag of microwave popcorn waiting for you inside the microwave which is a nice touch.
A first time stay and I was pleasantly surprised how clean and quiet it was with great amenities. My only issue was the bed was too soft (now I sound like Goldilocks and the three bears) to what I am used to....but I slept great anyway.
