They desk staff was friendly and helpful. It was just too loud there ask for non smoking room but we are pretty sure it had been smoked it. It was not a typical Marriott stay which I'm accustomed to but it was not the worst either. I would not stay again but if you are just look for a place... More

I was disappointed right away Upon my arrival. The couple in front of me was given a full description of the amenities of the Hotel/motel. The front desk person didn't even make 1 mention of any amenities but definitely didn't make me feel welcome. The title " suites " does not fit the usual suite. It's basically a 1 room... More

This place is very good if you are going to be staying for a long trip and don't want to eat out. The rooms are basically one bedroom apartments, with a Kitchenette, separate bedroom, and an on site laundry. My one complaint was that the morning of my departure the hot water ran out. They don't have a free breakfast,... More

Spent a night here visiting family in the area. Very clean, dog friendly, comfy beds, friendly front desk staff and easy parking! Starbucks, McDonalds, Pollo Loco, and KFC nearby. It's about 2 miles off the freeway but centrally located between the I-5 and I-405.

Located between n a very quiet area, this was the perfect place to rest and stay away from all the traffic of I-5. Our long trip was compensated with such comfortable place. The small refrigerator and the kitchenette made our stay even more for table than we expected. So much space in the room and the counter made my job... More

This was our first stay at a Candlewood Suites hotel and my wife and I were totally impressed. We selected this hotel because of the price and closeness to an early morning appointment. Of the ten hotels in the area, it was the lowest priced. Entering the suite we were surprised with every aspect it. The kitchen looked like it... More

Love this place. I try to stay here every year I'm in Irvine. I'm never disappointed by this Candlewood location due to their customer service and always having a clean and comfortable stay. We were checked in by friendly staff who also pointed out they had free DVD rentals. One thing I noticed was a crack in the bathroom sink... More

We had stayed here for three years during Thanksgiving holiday. We visit friends in the area and this has been our base camp. This is a three story hotel in a "L" configuration. It is easy to find.
