Clean rooms at a great price. Not far from freeways. But very quite. Has refrigerator with a ice maker sink and microwave. It is a mini apartment. We will be using this plane again when we are in the area.

The out side looks nice, the in side area to check in at is very small. The carpet in the halls are starting to show wear. One of the elevators lights on the Firth floor did not work, the rooms are nice and big and roomy. They have a full kitchen , with silverware and dishes, they have a work out area, laundry room. The hotel does not serve breakfast. Does have fast food very close, MD. This very isolated, they are only about from 10 minutes from a very large out door mall with lot of places to eat. It is an ok place.

I live nearby, and when my Sister and Brother in Law came to visit they stayed at the Candlewood Suites in Lake Forest. They Loved it. It was actually an issue about getting them to show up at our house before dinner because they were so comfortable there. My sister said if she didn't have other obligations she would have been glad to stay there all winter. We give it a "thumbs up".

Great price for the area - doesn't look like much at first but rooms are large (like a small apartment) - to stay out of traffic heading to the coast, cut over on 133 to Laguna Beach - spend your evenings at 'The Deck', and Dana Point is a good daytime area to hang out.

I cannot even begin to fully express how blown away I was by EVERY aspect of my experience with Candlewood Suites. Over the past two years, I have visited Lake Forest approximately six times, staying at different hotels in the area (including "high-end hotels) and BY FAR this is the absolute best experience I have had, not to mention the most affordable!! EVERYTHING about my visit was absolutely perfect, from being allowed to check in early...to the friendly and gracious staff who gave me a room upgrade without my even asking...to the vast array of amenities/Lending Locker/Fitness Room/Complimentary Laundry Room....to the clean, comfortable and spacious rooms which included a fully-stocked kitchen! Special thanks to Alrich and Delvoun who greeted me each and every time I saw them with a HUGE smile and made me feel as if making my stay as pleasant as possible was their utmost priority! I cannot tell you how far good customer service goes in my book...I often am even willing to overlook other flaws at a facility if the staff is wonderful...but in this case, I do not have one single complaint! I absolutely feel as if I am gushing, but I just want to stress how amazing my experience was at Candlewood-Lake Forest! Without hesitation, I will recommend to anyone I know who may be visiting the Lake Forest area that they would be foolish to stay anywhere other than Candlewood! I have no doubt they will thank me later for the recommendation! I can say in all honesty that this is the ONLY place I will stay from here on out when visiting SoCal :0))))
