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. That being said, I'm not a very fussy traveler even when paying out of pocket. Yes, this place is a bit worn around the edges but our room was huge, the staff were more... More

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. There is not breakfast either and similar hotels have free breakfast for a similar price. The room smelled musty and was dimly lit.... More

This is the best place I & my family have stayed out if all the hotels in San Diego. When I walked into the room I was so pleasantly surprised by the space, 10' high ceilings open floor plan, full kitchenette, dishwasher, microwave oven, fully stocked with everything you'll need to cook a great meal. The beds are super comfortable,... More

Our business trip was made more enjoyable due to the conveniences of this hotel! Bring a pillow; the pillows are too high but the bed was comfortable! I gave it an average on cleanliness because I question the vacuuming and mopping of all hotels of this class. There are several local restaurants and it's easy to get to downtown. I... More

Dear Bob V of Houston, Thank you for posting that you enjoyed your recent stay with us due to our great central location. Sorry you found our pillows too fluffy, not something I hear very often.

We just returned from our trip to San Diego with the kids. This place was a good choice for us since we have four daughters. The room was decorated fine, nothing special but nice. You could see where recent renovation/repair work had been done to the walls but all in all this suite was not too shabby. The bathroom was... More

Guy at front desk couldn't have been nicer. This seems to be a converted property, or one in the process of conversion. My room/suite was massive, but the furniture in it seemed to rattle around like a BB in a tin can. Entry to rooms is from the outside, like a 70's motel. Seemed kind of creepy on the top... More
