The lobby is small. The elevator is slow. The room is kind of dated - may need an update. Marketed as a studio room but it was just a regular room with a small kitchenette. No breakfasts or restaurants on site. The staff was friendly.

I spent two nights at the Candlewood Suites during a business trip in August 2015. I chose the hotel primarily based on price, as well as reviews on TripAdvisor. As is known, Candlewood is an extended-stay property, so there is no daily housekeeping nor is breakfast included. That said, you do get a nicely equipped kitchen, and there are two... More

The rooms have a kitchen area with full-size refrigerator, cook-top, and dishwasher, a table large enough to seat two, and a recliner, in addition to a king-size bed, but they are not two-room suites, and there is not even a partial wall separating one area from another. (The bathroom, is, of course, separated for privacy.) The room was clean and... More

This place is a great place to stay, it is not far from the highway and it's very close to some super markets and the price is very reasonable for everything you're getting and the location. The rooms are cozy and it's basically a small studio, you have a full refrigerator, sink, stove, microwave, dishwasher and a small table/desk. The... More

Be aware that this is an extended-stay place, so rooms are serviced only once a week. I already felt the price was a bit high, so having to make my own bed did not help. The good: Rooms and bathroom are spacious, clean and up to date. Windows are double-paned, which reduces outside traffic noise. Bed is comfortable. There is... More

Lots of smokers (not sure why) and since it is pet friendly, we heard dogs barking a few times (seemingly unattended dogs). Common areas were dirty... hallways needed vacuuming, elevator was dirty, exercise room needed vacuuming and some TLC as 2 of the 3 machines didn't work correctly. Plus our toilet ran.

Some good aspects but the many Ghetto things outweigh the good! I guess it is never a good sign when you arrive to a hotel and the first thing you see is a newer truck on blocks with all the wheels and tires missing!!

The room was very nice. Large..clean with kitchen area. We were in room 105 and outside the room was a patio area with a BBQ. Smokers filled the patio our entire stay there. In the day it was fine but they continued to gather and talk and laugh loudly until 4:00 in the morning. Others took their dogs there all... More

First time in California, I stayed in the Candlewood Suites and it was very clean and great for the price I paid. I like to stay in places with a kitchen and for the size of the room and having a kitchen was a great benefit.

We spent one night here. I find it too expensive for what it is especially because there is no breakfast included. It was clean and the rooms were not more than just fine but here and there there would be a whole layer of dust for example on the fridge.. It was also a bit noisy from the passing by... More
