I just wanted to provide a feedback about my wonderful stay at CS at Hotel Circle, San Diego. Danielle was also very helpful in answering all my questions patiently. I even left my spa sound machine by mistake and she made sure that she coordinated with the room service lady and it was ready next morning for me to pick... More

Just had a really nice stay at this property. Very large studio suite, with kitchenette. Was in San Diego for the holidays for five days, and this property met every expectation; comfortable bed, large screen TV, and easy to get to. It's minimal service as has been described (you might want to bring your own amenities if you're particular), but... More

This is a great property for family travel where service is minimal but the value is great. There is no daily service, but it is almost like being home and their kiosk is great at prices that compare with outside stores rather than the rip-offs that most hotels try to charge. The hot drinks available all day is also great... More

I searched for a pet-friendly hotel with kitchenette when I moved my daughter and her cat from the midwest for grad school. Candlewood's prices were very reasonable! I expected an oversized hotel room with minimal eating equipment, but we were shocked to walk into a large living area, nearly full-size kitchen, an alcove with a queen bed and bathroom, and...

This location is quiet and accesible. The room was spacious and very clean. I wish it would had free breakfast. The elevator has some noise but nothing I would worry about. Personnel was very helpful and attentive. Overall it's a good place to stay.

I absolutely loved this hotel!! The rooms are HUGE and the views are great not all but some. The staff was very friendly and the location was great right near a mall and tons of food.

As a suite, there is a separate living room with a door into the kitchen area. We had two queen beds that were quite comfortable. Washer and dryer on first floor were free to use, except go to a store and buy your own detergent if you plan on doing more than one load. $2 for a single load box... More
