Perfect accommodations for five people traveling together. Roomy and comfortable. Eas access from the highway and in close proximate to excellent food. Priced right for a family budget.With free Wi-Fi for all the busy family to keep up with their facebook friends.

It is my entire pleasure to take this opportunity and express my true thanks and appreciation to the Candlewood Suites Team in San Diego namely: Danielle, Breisi, Tammy for their comprehensive, dedication and unlimited support. They were excellent throughout the three nights that I have spent into these suites. They are a great example of how the hotel staff should... More

This is my second review of this property. We had many issues that were not easily rectified. The staff was friendly and helpful but we were very disappointed with the promptness of action taken when problems arose. The upkeep and the maintenance of the property since our last visit seems to have slipped. One example was that the vanity sink... More

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
