Very quiet except for the typical midnight car alarm from some guest. Staff friendly, place is clean, adequate. I won't say its super nice, it could use some updating but for the price its great. Nice bike / jog path right out the door. Bed was comfy, can sleep with windows open and get some real air.

The renovation to Candlewood was ok, the one thing I found odd was all three facilities were connected. There wasn't much space to move around in the gym. Also, the room we stayed in had major flaws such as unmatched paint, mildew build up around the bathroom sink and tub, and wall thermostat not functioning properly. Inspector needs to check... More

The hotel claimed the internet is available. But I found it was not worked at all. I checked other guests, they feel the same way. The front desk staff talk me they just updated their conneciton. i cannot even open a webpage. it is really not as they claimed.

My wife was an emergency patient at Hoag hospital and I stayed three nights in two separate stays at the Candlewood to be as close as possible to her. The hotel was clean if a little bit worn ( the armchair in my first room was very worn). My second room was fine. The workout room facility is very good.... More

Horrible - could be nice as the rooms are large. Unfortunately the place reeks of cigarette smoke - the smell is imbedded into the furniture and walls. I actually checked out and didn't spend the night because the smell of smoke was so horrible.

I stay here for several weekends. The room is quiet and sunny. The hotel is right off freeway. Nearby there are several complexes that have restaurants and supermarkets. The most near one Quail Hill is only minutes drive. The Starbucks there names its wi-fi 'googlestarbucks'. Google has a office nearby. Many people who go there are googlers. People in this... More

My husband and I stayed here over the weekend with our dog. Long story short, we wanted to be near his work so we could maximize the little time we had together this weekend. It was not meant to be a romantic weekend. I read a lot of the reviews on multiple sites and was a bit wary about the... More
