I needed accommodations for weekend events in the general area and chose this based on their affiliation with IHG (able to use or earn points). It was a little tricky to find - there is a sign at the road, but no directional signs once you make the turn off of Sand Cyn. Just bear left and follow the signs... More

The location is really not too bad - Sandy Canyon seems to be the south-most major road for Irvine. It is a short drive to the many strip malls in Irvine - if you have a car. The good thing is that it is away from the freeways and it is quiet. This is a typical renovated Candlewood. Some of... More

Hotel is good, main problem is the location, far away from any market, for that one need to cross the highway, Not recommended unless you have a car. Crossing the higway by walking is impossible no way. Mostly the Medicals around.

I was unsure about this hotel but that went away shortly after arriving. It's not your resort hotel (all rooms have full kitchens, no pool, no breakfast, no hot tub), but it's great if your there a long time. They do have a store in the hotel where you can buy food, snacks, and drinks. Highly recommend this hotel.

Hotel that makes extended stays comfortable. I have been staying here for more than 2 weeks in a Queen bed studio Pros: 1. Very close to the Irvine Spectrum Center and the offices around this area. 2. I have stayed in other Candlewood suites and the level of service from the staff here is better. 3. Cost effective pricing and... More

Shared a suite with two others. The room was clean and neat and the staff friendly. The hotel is not near any restaurants or shopping however although there is an Albertson's supermarket a couple miles away. The hotel has an arrangement with LABites.com for food delivery from a variety of local restaurants. We tried Yard House and it was OK... More

I had stayed in a Candlewood Suites in Chicago a few years back and was not impressed but this one rivals some of the best hotels I have stayed in.

I have stayed in this hotel 2 times. I like their very quite and safe environment. Their staff are also very nice and warm heart. The room is clean and the equipment in kitchen is good enough. I also can borrow DVD for my night time. I for sure will live there again.
