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

Just had a really nice stay at this property. Very large studio suite, with kitchenette. Was in San Diego for the holidays for five days, and this property met every expectation; comfortable bed, large screen TV, and easy to get to. It's minimal service as has been described (you might want to bring your own amenities if you're particular), but... More

This is a great property for family travel where service is minimal but the value is great. There is no daily service, but it is almost like being home and their kiosk is great at prices that compare with outside stores rather than the rip-offs that most hotels try to charge. The hot drinks available all day is also great... More

I searched for a pet-friendly hotel with kitchenette when I moved my daughter and her cat from the midwest for grad school. Candlewood's prices were very reasonable! I expected an oversized hotel room with minimal eating equipment, but we were shocked to walk into a large living area, nearly full-size kitchen, an alcove with a queen bed and bathroom, and...
