The room was great, very large, and clean. The motel is located close to Sea World, and other points of interest. I come to San Diego once a year to visit family, and this is the perfect place to stay.

I booked this hotel because we needed something with a kitchen. We booked the queen suite. The room was huge! It was more of an apartment. The bed was basically in its own room. The AC worked so good that we couldn't even keep it on because the room would be to cold. There is free laundry on site. Every... More

I got in after midnight and had to wait a while for the front desk associate but he was doing something to help a guest who was waiting in the lobby with her dog. Candlewood has limited personnel as a way to save costs so it was no big deal. First off, if you have never stayed at a Candlewood... More

From the moment, we walked in the door, the hospitality and warmth of Candlewood surrounded us and never left until long after we checked out of the hotel. The upgraded deluxe suite was a delight to behold and be a guest in. Everything we needed was right there. I loved the fact that we were in a floor thru unit... More

Not sure how many people know but this is an extended stay hotel. So much of the facility is heavily used. You also don't get service every day like you would in ordinary hotels. We've stayed here before but not that impressed however we used points and the price was right. Suggest as others have to stay on third floor... More
