Staff - 5 Hotel - 4 Value - 5 Everyone at the Lake Forest Hotel greets me as if I were the King staying at the The St. Regis New York. You can tell the upper management likes their job because everyone else seems to like what they are doing too. Hotel - The only point off is the desk...

I was disappointed right away Upon my arrival. The couple in front of me was given a full description of the amenities of the Hotel/motel. The front desk person didn't even make 1 mention of any amenities but definitely didn't make me feel welcome. The title " suites " does not fit the usual suite. It's basically a 1 room...

This place is very good if you are going to be staying for a long trip and don't want to eat out. The rooms are basically one bedroom apartments, with a Kitchenette, separate bedroom, and an on site laundry. My one complaint was that the morning of my departure the hot water ran out. They don't have a free breakfast,...

Spent a night here visiting family in the area. Very clean, dog friendly, comfy beds, friendly front desk staff and easy parking! Starbucks, McDonalds, Pollo Loco, and KFC nearby. It's about 2 miles off the freeway but centrally located between the I-5 and I-405.

Located between n a very quiet area, this was the perfect place to rest and stay away from all the traffic of I-5. Our long trip was compensated with such comfortable place. The small refrigerator and the kitchenette made our stay even more for table than we expected. So much space in the room and the counter made my job...

This was our first stay at a Candlewood Suites hotel and my wife and I were totally impressed. We selected this hotel because of the price and closeness to an early morning appointment. Of the ten hotels in the area, it was the lowest priced. Entering the suite we were surprised with every aspect it. The kitchen looked like it...

Love this place. I try to stay here every year I'm in Irvine. I'm never disappointed by this Candlewood location due to their customer service and always having a clean and comfortable stay. We were checked in by friendly staff who also pointed out they had free DVD rentals. One thing I noticed was a crack in the bathroom sink...

We had stayed here for three years during Thanksgiving holiday. We visit friends in the area and this has been our base camp. This is a three story hotel in a "L" configuration. It is easy to find. We like it for several reasons. It is easy to get to from the 5 or the 405 (of course those freeways...

Stayed here on business and the hotel was great - quiet, very clean, and a terrific staff who was very helpful. Free laundry as always. The one issue is that there are few restaurants within walking distance, so glad the hotel has suites with a kitchen. Hotel has a small store downstairs with food for sale so I mainly cooked....
