Had a great stay in Montreal with kids age 6 and 2. Perfect with the junior suite/kitchenette and lots of space for them to romp around in living room. Only drawback was that 2 year old figured out pretty quick how to open front door. Don't know if hotel would consider handing out temporary 'child locks' e.g. suction locks that could be placed higher up door.
Candlewood Suites met me and my brother's needs perfectly for a weekend trip up to Montreal. Here are the reasons I would recommend booking this hotel for anyone considering:
1. The friendliness/helpfulness of the staff
- The staff were very helpful throughout our stay. Everyone spoke perfect English to me and answered my questions about parking, how to get to the room, and where to go to convert cash. The woman who checked me in that first night even converted 40$ USD to CAD at the front desk, which was awesome as the exchange centers were closed by the time we got up there in the evening. Everyone I spoke with was approachable and did not seem bothered when I asked them questions.
2. The room
- I honestly wasn't sure what to expect about the size of the room given that we had booked a single queen bed, but it was large! The room had a full counter stove, sink, refrigerator, eating bowels, and utensils all in the room. The bed itself was nice and firm (while not being overly so) and comfortable for both my brother and I to get a good night’s sleep. Everything in the room was really clean, including the bathroom, and the sheets on the bed were freshly washed.
3. The location
- This hotel is located a 5 minute walk away from the Complexe Desjardins where restaurants, an IGA grocery store, a metro stop, and an RBC bank for converting money are located. Place Des Arts, Chinatown, and Old Montreal are also nearby within walking distance.
How happy we were when we arrived at the Travel Lodge to find a wonderful destination waiting for us. Friendly check-in, spacious, clean and quiet room. The cleaning staff was friendly and helpful, the couple of times we had to ask a question. We felt very satisfied with our stay and we would visit again, and of course, recommend to friends! Thank you, Travel Lodge!

Coming from NY, it was very easy to drive right to the hotel. Our car was quickly whisked away, the front desk was friendly and welcoming. The room was clean and spacious. The layout of the bathroom was very well-designed; the way the space was configured made it much easier for 4 of us to use the bathroom.
