I usually do very well by checking TripAdvisor for hotels, but I have to say I was pretty disappointed this time. We were just passing through for 1 night on vacation. I have not stayed at a Candlewood Suites before, so I did not appreciate the price point they target. I would probably not stay again if there are any... More

Dear Valued Guest, I am very sorry to hear that you did not like your stay here at the Candlewood Suites, Santa Maria. I understand how important it is to have adequate space, especially when traveling with family.

We recently spent one night in this hotel as part of a two week tour around California. This was easily the best hotel we stayed in and wasn't expensive either. The facilities are excellent and the room had everything we needed, including a decent small kitchen. There were also free laundry facilities, a gym and a large DVD library to... More

We stayed here for a night while passing through town. The place was clean and well priced. The staff were really helpful and recommended a great restaurant for us to eat in. They helped us with bags and arranged for tea and coffee. We'll definitely stay here again.

We recently stayed at Candlewood Suites while vacationing. The desk clerks were beyond helpful, the room makes it easy to eat in, free laundry, etc. can't think of anything about our stay. Excellent value for the cost ... Which was so reasonable.

Had two rooms for a night while traveling south to LA. Rooms are well appointed, clean, with kitchen supplies and dishwasher. Even a complimentary bag of popcorn in the microwave. We easily prepared dinner and breakfast for 4. It appeared that there is not daily room service - often on extended stays we only request room service every other day... More
