The room was decent, and the space was appreciated, but obviously with a rigorous work schedule, I wish CS would offer breakfast, but that is what IHG's Staybridge Suites are for. While it is obvious that Staybridge properties are superior, CS's aren't bad, but they cater to those looking for a home. This one felt removed from many parts of...

We like this place. We have come down here for 3 years now and this place works out perfect for us. We have relatives in the area and the location is perfect for us. I have written reviews of this Candlewood before so I will summarize by saying it is very easy to get to from 5 or the 405....

I recently experienced a 2 night stay here and was pleasantly surprised by the comfort and feel of the room. I read that the rooms were remodeled in 2012 and I have to say they are holding up well, at least my room anyway. I didn't use the kitchenette at all besides the micro to pop the free popcorn and...

I forgot to take a picture of the thermostat, but it had a motion sensor on it. It was set to turn off when you were not in the room. However, it was on a wall that was not facing the bed. So it would turn off while you were asleep. I ended up opening the window for some cool...

On May 20th, me and my husband traveled from Las Vegas back to LA and check-in "Motel 6". It was an awful night. (too much noise + no enough furniture except 2 twin beds) We moved to Candlewood Suites, Lake Forest next day noon. It felt just like going back our own home in Taiwan. They got everything we need...

The new beds are super comfy. Good sized and quality flatscreen was nice too. Lending locker with juicers is welcome addition. Staff is great here and this is a nice quiet location. Good for business travel particularly if you enjoy making your own meals in lieu of eating out every meal while on the road.

Want to thank Dawn, the sales director as well as Daniel and Barnard, the people at the desk for a pleasant stay. The facility was clean and quiet. The rooms are laid out well for business travelers including a large desk and a comfortable office chair at the desk. Internet was free and non-intrusive. Even the on-site laundry has no...

Was given a hard time after being charged twice on my credit card. I was not the only person who faced this issue. The issue got resolved on its own on the last day but I went through hell for more than 10 days with no real help.
