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

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
