All Candlewood's seem to be the same... Cheap uncomfortable furniture in the living area and OK beds. The air conditioning seems be be struggling to keep up and it was a nice day and night. Overall this seems to be a good safe area at a OK price.

The hotel is located close to an Emergency room, so I *think* a lot of people that stay, are visiting relatives. As such, the hotel is very quite, clean and generally nice. There is a small gym room, with basic equipement, there is a coffee machine and a free laundry. What's not to like? :)

The was $98 with tax and near to Newport Beach, Laguna Beach and about an hour north of San Diego but NOT at those $$$ prices. We went to Ralphs to get breakfast and late night snacks (microwave and full size refrigerator ) for Ice Cream and Apple Pie. This was our only hotel with FREE parking!

I probably should have done more research before booking this hotel. It just wasn't what I was expecting, so I was taken aback when the concept of Candlewood Suites was explained to me at check-in - basically, you get a room and no services. That is, the room is cleaned once a week, if you need clean linens in the...

You feel like you are at home here. Relaxing, quite, clean. Just pack your food and drinks, the rooms are fully equipped with everything you need to have a 7 course meal. Close to airport, $13.00 taxi ride from airport to hotel.

We moved after one sleepless night because the fridge and a/c were so noisy. No safe, no breakfast, bed OK, bathroom basic. Bin was unemptied from last time, hair from previous occupant in bath. It was more like a private room in a youth hostel and apparently used mostly by families of people in the hospital next door which it...

I have been doing a lot of traveling and this hotel was great! The staff was always happy to answer questions, solves problems (and there were a few, no big deal) and make our stay more comfortable. It was easy to find using Google maps and it is quiet and has a nice walking trail behind the hotel. I am...

I went to Candlewood with my wife for two weeks for a study proposal. Price is good, but I didn't see, clearly, in any place at the site, that the housekeeping would come once a week. Impossible to keep clean if there is a kitchen inside the suite. Staff very good, specially a young Latin one. The American was to...

This place is so hard to find, just like others have stated. Wasted 20 minutes circling around. Just know it's near Hoag Hospital. Room was dirty (hairs) dated, and musty. Most CS smell amazing as soon as you walk in. Would never stay here again. My wake up call was even late. Since when does 15 sound like 20? I...
