Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by kamaaina78 Perfect hotel for extended stay business travelers
This hotel was perfect for my one month of work at the nearby Forum and has easy access to the freeways when visiting the rest of L.A. Front desk staff was friendly and helpful (Maria is the best, and she made sure I was in a much needed quiet room.) Property was clean, free laundry was great, and it was nice to have the cardio equipment in the gym. Housekeeping did a wonderful job with my room and the snack store came in handy a couple times. Will stay there again for future work gigs in LA.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 Consider safety first
The neighborhood is 'sub optimal', with beggars walking down the sidewalk outside the hotel soliciting. Likely because of the neighborhood, parking for guests is in a nearby fenced and gated multi-floor garage with no elevator.
Some guests in the hotel did not control their children (as old as 12 running and yelling in the hallways) even after multiple calls on multiple days to the front desk.
Hardest mattress I've seen in months in any hotel, on a bed positioned all the way up against the wall on one side ... ???.
The cooktop range even had a manual rotary timer ... crazy to use when cooking anything on the burner for over an hour.
Refrigerator doors (reversible) opened the 'wrong' way into the kitchen. Need better counter lighting in the kitchen area.
I won't likely stay at this particular property again unless all other options in that area are sold out.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Phil568791 Stay for a work week
The price is a little steep for the value. Room exceeded my expectation with a full kitchen. I had a non-smoking room but it still had a smell of cigarettes. Other than that good staff, clean rooms, descent location.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Robertin2014 Comfortable and Convenient
Well appointed room and friendly staff with convenient access to LAX and the Freeways. Aircraft noise is present outside the room but not so loud that it disrupted my sleep. Ice cold air that didn't shut off in the middle of the night was an important plus.. I would book this hotel again without hesitation.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by tkbs OK for a bed for the night
In the area for work. All my normal local hotels booked so made this reservation. When I arrived I was surprised, I thought it was the Holiday Inn Express that had changed to Candlewood, had not noticed it before. I was disappointed because I had resolved to not stay at HI again due to the parking and lack of close restaurants.
O well, there were no other options. Candlewood was fine for a room for the night but I would have a hard time staying in this area for an extended time. Typical tv but internet was slow even for a hotel connection and as I mentioned parking is odd here you must park in a garage behind the hotel and across a small street, it is secured parking but the gate is slow.
