I have stayed at somewhere between 7-9 Candlewood properties and they are about as identical and uneventful in consistency as I have seen from a small brand within a hotel chain. Where I would give this one high marks is on location (quiet and perfect for SNA/Irvine/South Coast Plaza), ease of parking and convenience and just completing a moderate renovation.... More

This was a really nice stay overall I have to say. I see why it's rated highly. The grounds were well kept and felt pretty welcoming. Parking was no problem as the lot was spacious. Checking in was fairly easy as our reservations were already made online. We only stayed for one night but everything was comfortable including our queen... More

The good: Got in and were given a free upgrade to a 1 bedroom! That was AWESOME. Needed a crib and it was already in our room ready to go. Soooooo nice. Kitchen was perfect. The not-as-good: Where was the pool?? Apparently there was one, but when we looked we failed at finding it. And no breakfast. But, it was... More

Stayed here on a business trip for 3 weeks. It was located in a central location to many shopping areas, restaurants and freeways. The staff was very attentive, including the cleaning crew. They only clean/exchange towels and bedding once a week so if staying for an extended time with family, you will need to take your towels to the front... More

The hotel is clean staff was a pleasant liar. He told us they did not HAVE to give us two beds because we booked through Hotels.com. We got no break on price anyway however the person in front of me paid 79. It was deceptive and not how alleged guests expect to be treaded. Horrible experience The claim to be... More

Candlewood was great for my business trip. It was well stocked with tupperware, a pasta pot, and after staying at another extended stay hotel, I was glad to see a hair blow dryer, sponges for washing the dishes, and nice blankets. There was an issue with my heater and unfortunately the hotel is not staffed 24 hours so I had... More

Stayed here for two days when a close friend of mine flew in on a business trip. It's a very clean looking property.It appeared to be set up for extended stays in that there is no daily housekeeping service. If you need more towels before the scheduled rotation you have to go to the front desk. It has a gym... More
