I stayed here with a group of friends coming back from a trip to Mexico. We had a total of four suites. Since we were dog-tired and I had chosen the hotel, I was a hopeful that everyone would be happy with our rooms. We were! Check in was a breeze; the girl working the desk was pleasant and answered...

The standard of housekeeping left a lot to be desired. First room we were assigned had not been cleaned since last guest. There were snotty tissues on the couch and smears down the mirrors. Obscene words were also written on the notice board with a biro. The previous guests had also smoked in the room and jammed all the holes... More

I stayed there 3 nights, nothing is really standing out. Wall are as thick as cigarette paper which means you can hear your neighbor watching TV if it is too loud. Gym is OKish... not great. Convenient location if you have business in Irvine, Lake Forest.

Stayed here for several nights and found the hotel to be very comfortable. The staff was helpful. The location was great, I was visiting friends in the Lake Forest / Silverado Canyon area and this was close to both. I like having a Mini Kitchen with a full size fridge. I'll be back

I decided to try the Candlewood suites this time based on the TA reviews and I was not disappointed. I was immediately greeted upon entering by a friendly clerk who informed me that as the hotel was not busy... More

I have nothing negative to say avout the staff nor the cleanliness of this hotel however, whoever built/designed hotel deserves to be slapped across the face for such poor design and lack of knowledge regarding buildings. This building was poorly built. Everytime someone walked acoss the hall on the floor above us or walked around their own room as any... More

I stayed at this hotel for a couple of nights recently. Plus points; front desk staff were very polite and helpful plus you have a refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher and small stovetop so if like me you just want to head back to your room and throw something together to eat while you work, it was great. Minus points; the kitchen... More

The Candlewood Suites - Irvine East (it's actually in Lake Forest, CA) is a nice, pleasant hotel in an upscale neighborhood. It's a good place to stay when on an extended business trip (or even for just one or two nights) because of the amenities.
