This was our last stop after over 2,200 mile trip in So Cal, Nevada and Arizona. It was fine for a couple of nights but is slightly out of the way, although only $8-$10 by Uber to the Gaslamp District. The rooms were certainly large and the place being pretty new was clean and modern. Our stay felt very comfortable.... More

Had rented a 2 bedroom suite. It was a bit of an odd arrangement as the 2nd bedroom runs off the main lounge room and it had no doors. Other than this, the rooms are very modern and large. Great bed. Great kitchenette. Very friendly staff. It is a little out of the way if you want to visit the... More

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
