My family spent a weekend at this property to relax. We had an awesome check in experience which was delivered by Jaime. He really had a way to make us feel welcome. Another person from the front desk is Nazario who treated us like royalty. Will definitely come back because of them.

This is the second time I stayed here. Before the first problem was loud housekeepers being disruptive, now the problem seems to be comfort. The room changes from very hot to very cold there is no in between. When the air conditioner is on it is very loud and did not sleep well because of that. Also I had suspicion... More

I usually like Candlewood Suites. I know what I am getting in to with the extended stay places, but I like the positive trade offs like the mini kitchen. So first the good: The front desk staff I interacted with were great! The room is what you've come to expect, with the exception of two problems that ultimately force me... More

I stayed here on business for 2weeks. Good side is the suites are equipped with kitchen. However, the room I was given had weird smell like some kind of construction material. On the first night I was greeted by a small roach in bed, which I had to catch and kill. My allergy was triggered either by dust or dustmites.... More

I have been staying at this Candlewood for 6 months, and I have nothing but praise for this as a great place to stay. The facility is well maintained, the rooms are comfortable with a nice kitchenette, the free laundry facility is convenient, and there is a great exercise facility. It is convenient to highways but very quiet inside and... More

This was an average Candlewood Suites. The suite was clean enough, however, the service at this Candlewood Suites is lacking. The internet wasn't working for nearly 3 days and then when it was working, I could barely get a connection. After asking the front desk too many times, I just gave up and went to the nearby Starbucks. I think... More

This was a great find. Hotels can get very expensive in So Cal and this was a great value (paid $90 per night). Only downfall is that it is a little off the beat and path. However it is easy to get to the highway and the beach cities. The room was very clean and modern, very comfortable bed and... More
