The newly built (summer 2011) Candlewood Suites hotel is part of a developing commercial area on the northern approach to El Paso along US 54, though located one block from the highway and so providing a quiet night's sleep. West facing rooms have fine views across the desert to the Franklin Mountains
which rise up 2 miles away. Fort Bliss is also within a few miles, while Cohen Stadium is directly opposite. Accommodation at the hotel comprises 101 spacious suites, all with a full kitchen; other facilities are a convenience store and fitness center (both open 24 hours), free wi-fi, a gazebo with bbq grills, and a business center.
