We stayed a week at this extended stay hotel, in Room 301. Very large 2 bedroom suite. The first bedroom has a king bed with TV and a bathroom right next to the room. The second bedroom has a queen bed with a separate bathroom, but this room isn't closed off, it's just an open area just off the living... More

My husband and I stayed four nights at this property and were very happy with the location. We rented a car, and had great access to Mission Beach, San Diego Zoo, shops and restaurants. It seemed everything we needed was within a 10 minute drive or less. The hotel staff was extremely helpful and polite. They gave us directions to... More

Stayed for a week+ and it was a life saver. Our room was a 2-room suite; had one bedroom which is open to the living room with a full bath and at the other end a private and very quiet bedroom with full bath. Kitchenette was great for making breakfast, having carry out and reheating leftovers, and snacking. Full size... More

Front room was a little dark. The rooms are spacious. The kitchenette area is between the front room and the bedroom. All the convenience of home. We didn't really cook much. There was a timer for the stove, which I thought was a good idea. There was a full size refrigerator. No maid service for a two night stay but... More

The hotel is conveniently located for all San Diego attractions. The staff were friendly and greeted me with a "good morning" each morning and a "hello" each evening. The room was relaxing and the bed was comfortable. My only complaint is that I only got one free coffee pack and then had to buy more if I wanted coffee more... More

We had to move out of our condo for a week and we chose Candlewood for its kitchens. The room 115 was huge but very dark... That being said... We were comfortable. I could not open the window and it often got stuffy. The room was clean when we arrived and the kitchen was a bit low on utensils but... More

First of all, as a disclaimer I must say we used reward points to extend our stay in San Diego by two nights at this hotel.

I would not stay here again. It is located close the the hiway, the staff was very nice and as others have said they have a coffee/snack area. The coffee is free but the snacks are not.
