Very average, The Candle wood Cupboard was not restocked in the more than a week that I was there, but the employees more than made up for it, very professional staff. Would gladly stay again because of the staff

The rooms are OK and the exercise facilities are decent. The night staff seemed more friendly than the day staff; but generally, most people were cordial and friendly enough. No one really went out of their way to be helpful, but the went any big issues. It was a good, quiet stay.

Hotel is an odd location but it's mainly because they cater to specific businesses in the area. Has a nice size parking lot. Check in was quick and the front desk guy was very nice and professional. Room was the typical candlewood decor. I enjoyed having a kitchenette although an oven or toaster oven would be nice. Dishwasher in my...

If given the opportunity I would avoid this hotel and choose a different place. I was staying using IHG rewards points for one night prior to an early flight from SNA, and the location was close, and the points per night among the lowest options available. As a spire elite I received no upgrade, although I did inquire online ahead...

I stayed here with my family as part of an Orange County weekend beach getaway. Even on a holiday weekend with heavy traffic it was about a 15-20 minute drive to Laguna Beach.
