The room in this Candlewood was clean and nice size. It had a stove, microwave, and full refrigerator. There is no ice in the bldg so yo must remember to turn the refrigerator ice maker on upon arrival so it can make ice. Good room climate control and ample closet space. The hotel is in a quiet location. Front desk... More

Stayed here for about 80 days and had quite a comfortable stay. Got a good deal on the room rates for an extended stay. Staff was courteous. No complementary breakfast, since they had kitchen in the rooms. Plenty of food places within 2 mile radius, so no complaints. Rooms were quite nice and clean. However some of the guests in... More

The hotel location is quiet, away from any busy road or Freeway noise, and airport noise ends at 11pm and doesn't resume until 7 a.m. so that was no problem either. It's also located centrally which makes getting to just about any Orange County location pretty easy. We had a Studio Suite, which provided all the basic necessities to settle... More

I travel often to the Orange County area on business, sometimes once a week. I've been staying at this property since 2008. This hotel has always worked out great for me. I've never had any problems with reservations or service, and my stay has always been good. Regarding the reviewers complaining about lack of a restaurant, breakfast, pool, etc. Please... More

It's one of the higher end 3 star business hotels. Lived in a Studio for a week and found the room to be well equipped, clean and comfortable. Nothing apart from the ordinary here, rooms cleaned once a week and a honour system 24 hours Cafe made life simple. Free Laundry and WiFi.

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

if you are looking for a good clean room only this is a good alternative. No pool no food. Have to walk about a mile and a half to get to any food. Clean and very comfortable beds nice flatscreen in rooms. Rooms have kitchens as well.

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
