Candlewood Suites Complaint - Slow motion internet service

Review by damon5205 on 2011-06-23
The free wifi at Candlewood Suites, Plano Texas is the slowest I have ever seen. Hard to conduct business with substandard wifi service. Its a deal breaker!

Wi-fi connections at the hotel can bogged down when there are many people on the internet. Try again at various parts of the day when there are less people using the internet.

That's true MRM if the hotel cheaps out by not obtaining an adequate amount of bandwidth to handle peak demand.

Once a desk clerk in Dayton explained to me there's no hot water in the morning because too many people take showers in the morning. I told him didn't care about his excuse because I expect a hot shower in the morning and it's the hotels responsibility to make it happen. I feel the same about wifi.

That's why I carry an air card.

When I'm going on a long roadtrip I buy pre-paid card for the Virgin Mobile Broadband2Go. $20 for one month will suffice.

Some hotels are franchise's and do not have professional design on their wifi. I have had owners tell me to put one radio per floor, instead of the one per 10 rooms I usually design. Also depends on the equipment. Linksys is OK for home, not for commercial.
