“Very nice hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

This hotel had everything I needed to make my extended stay easy. I stayed in the hotel prior to moving into my apartment for 2 months. They have the nice little pantry to buy essentials and to borrow small kitchen appliances. Staff was great and the price was appropriate for an extended stay. I think I have found a new chain for my long term stays.

After a horrific experience in Escondido, this place MORE than made up for it. They are incredibly pet friendly, was clean, spacious, accommodating, friendly. They are also located less than .25 miles from The District; a great dining and shopping experience. We'll definitely be back and refer this hotel. Our only issue was an ant infestation in the parking lot that spread to our car. KUDOS to Candlewood Suites!

I stayed at this hotel for a day on business. It is at good location, close to John Wayne airport and near a major shopping mall with many restaurants, shops and grocery store.
The room was very clean and has been recently renovated. The person at the reception was very helpful and courteous.
The Holiday Inn group must have hired a real good interior designer a couple of years ago and it shows because furniture, arrangement are really good in many of these chain-hotels now and not as bland as many other efficiency type hotels. I personally like the interior, it is above standard. The efficiency suite was well equipped, great value for the price The hotel has no pool, but laundry, fitness etc.and the A/C was one of the more noisy types, not a big problem in Cal though, but only 4 stars for that.
It is definitely great for a longer stay.

I have stayed in this hotel twice (Jan 2010 to Sep 2010 & Oct 2011 to Nov 2011) and stay a total period of 10 months for business purposes. This is the good place for extended stay in the area as It has a pretty isolated neighborhood area with no pool or spa. The BBQ pit is available on first serve basis. 3 storeys hotel with a slow moving elevator. If you have your own transport, parking spaces are readily available. Gas stations are available and are about half a mile away.

Internet is slow but they are fixing this. The wireless network is finally available and worked very well which was a bonus.

The hotel provides a large room with a kitchenette space, two elec burners, microwave, and a large fridge/freezer with pots, pans etc. Weekly room clean only, but weekly schedule can be changed when requested. Rooms present clean and in good working order. The normal customer seems to be longer term stayers - people from the surrounding businesses. it was awesome that it was attached to the laundry room so you can workout while you do a load of laundry, for free! Since the laundry service is free, scheduling of laundry is a must!!! The staff are very friendly and helpful.

You need your own transport to get to any place. Its about 2 miles drive to The District where you can get all your groceries and also various eateries. If you prefer asian food, Millikan Drive is 2 blocks away from The District.

Overall a good value stop for longer stay customers!!

We stayed here for 2 nights for the first time at this hotel on a quick trip to southern Cali. The room looked modern, clean and well equipped, like it was recently renovated. The room has a nice set-up and the free wifi was great. I have no complaints other than that the hotel is located at a corner of 2 streets so traffic noise could be heard starting at 8 in the morning or maybe even earlier. It wasn't a problem for us since we were up early both days. The service was decent and efficient.

I always stay at Candlewood, the suites are like mini apartments. They are currently going through a renovation, and I got one of the rooms that were already done. The room is beautiful! Contemporary and very stylish! As always, the staff is very friendly, and it was a pleasant stay.
