When we first go into the one bedroom suite it looked really nice, like a nicely furnished apartment. It was new and had plenty of space. The suite had a kitchen too. The layout was the same as other Candlewood suites I have stayed in the past. The decor and furniture was a lot more modern though; even had two flat screen LCD TV's (I couldn't find the HD channels though and the analog signals looked bad with these LCD's). Internet (wired and wireless) was free too. The front desk staff was helpful and friendly.
The location was convenient since it's right off Hwy 101 and near a shopping plaza.
So we thought we had found a great place to stay. Then after we settled in we started noticing some dark colored stains on the bathroom door frame and on the bathroom floor. The tables and counter tops in the kitchen were sticky as well. Finally, we found hair and other dirt in the bathtub. The room must not have been cleaned thoroughly from the last occupant. This ruined an otherwise pleasant experience.
If I could be sure that the room would be clean I would consider staying here again.
