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.

Very convenient to our son's home. Because bed was against the wall, it was difficult to get in and out. Hotel was acceptable for cleanliness, but carpets could have been cleaner. Overall a good stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by graziella comfortable..great service!
Great place! suitable for families with children. Need a car to move around, even though there are plenty of stores around the corner. If I had to visit LA with my children, I would definitely choose this location. The shuttle service was great...fully available, every half an hour. The garage was great! Very convenient!!!!!!!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Beyondthelaw Nice look, poor experience
The overall experience at this Candlewood was disappointing. The Front Desk staff were not friendly or helpful, the pantry was almost bare. The room was small. The internet was slow and spotty. Sleeping was almost impossible due to the amount of noise and lights constantly pouring in the windows, and the fact that you can't close the dark curtains. Sirens all through the night. And finally the AC was unreliable, and was incredibly loud. I generally like the Candlewood chain. This was not a place I would recommend.

Value was great, service was great, only gripe was the location of the parking, it was across the street, seems like a shared parking structure with another hotel. A bit noisy on the outside. Overall I would recommend despite the cons.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MiYi Nice place to stay to catch an early flight
Close to LAX airport, lots of stores, restaurant nearby (driving distance wise). Clean and spacy room with a kitchenette. Both wire and wireless connection to Internet although the Wi-Fi speed sometimes is a bit slow.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JH59 I needed a quiet comfortable place to work and rest.
The Candlewood Suites exceeded my expectations. It was a successful business visit to the area.
5 star ratings from this frequent and long term traveler.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Schnabelschuh Gutes Personal , sauber aber renovierungsbedürftig
Hotel liegt unweit des Flughafens, kostenfreies Parken im Parkhaus gegenüber.
Zimmer sind renovierungsbedürftig und laut, die Sauberkeit hingegen in Ordnung.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chainey429 Excellent, Professional, and Caring Staff!
I stayed at Candlewood for 12 weeks, and it was very comfortable and easy to be there. I was 2000 miles from my home in Tennessee, the people at Candiewood make it like family, home away from home.
Every thing you may want or need is close by, most times in walking distance, and LAX is right down the road. You don't even have to get on the freeway in all that traffic.
I have a job in September 2014 @ LAX and I will be back at Candlewood Suites.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Dr. Lotions Good Value for the Area
I will start by saying that this was one of the better values in an area that typically has pretty inflated prices on hotels and lodging. I am generally easy to please and there are only two things I look at when staying outside of my home. 1. Cleanliness of the bed; sheets, pillows and comforter. 2. Cleanliness of the shower and tub. Unfortunately there were some hairs on the bed sheets when I pulled back the comforter and that is always unsettling. The shower drain was rusty and overall the bathroom did not look clean. Another issue was that the furniture in the room was ripped and torn and the stuffing was visible. I would probably stay here again, but hopefully the hotel will address these issues in the future.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fibi79 Highly recommended!
It was a pleasure to stay at Candlewood. It is central and even the airport is close, it was very quite in our room. If you plan to travel around La it is a great place to stay. The room had enough space, a kitchen and even a typical american fridge. The bathroom was big as well. It is a native hotel which is offered to fair or even cheap (got a real good deal) prices. All in all it was very clean, the people very kind and helpful.
Free parking, Shuttle to the airport, mini shop to fair conditions and free coffee, many opportunities to dine and a supermarket is very close to, free wifi, laundry....
In short - I highly recommend to stay at Candlewood!
Many thanks to the team of Candlewood! Well done!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NSVN Clean comfortable rooms. Excellent customer service
It is an ideal place for a long stay with family. Very well connected with bus, trains and store of every kind. The kitchen has the required utensils and we found the same to be adequate and convenient. We could visit down town and to other places by quickly connecting to the nearest place by the hotel shuttle. It is true value for money. Above all, the place was safe and the hotel management very helpful.

The room needed to be updated. The cushions on the couch were falling apart! There were no restaurants nearby. Order in food was of poor quality. The two men at the desk were pleasant and tried to be helpful.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Felix S Unfavorable experience
I booked one night at this location because it offered very attractive rate from my usual stay at HIE across the building. Upon checking in, no usual welcome greeting for a platinum member as compare to my stay at other HI or HIE facilities. I decided it's not a big issue. But next morning, trying to make myself some coffee, I noticed one of the mug is dirty, i requested the front desk for a replacement, and also for a regular coffee as the compliment coffee packs left in the room were decaffeinate. I waited and waited, and finally decided to just forget about the whole thing. Upon checking out, I decided to voiced my dissatisfaction with the young woman at the front desk, and all she said was, "Oh? They didn't do it?" Later on, other girl from the front desk quickly came up to the room and try to pacify the incidence, but we were ready to leave.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Constructor another pleasant stay. thats why I keep returning
another wonderful stay. staff was awesome, maids were nice and room stayed clean. free laundry was a welcome sight.. the front desk was very helpful. they have a covered parking garage and 24 hour security on the property and very visible.
when I left before, they had a shuttle to the airport that made travel very convenient, it leaves for LAX every half hour.
the kitchens are handy and i am learning how to cook because of it.
you can't go wrong staying here

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by xfire Weekends are noisy
We have stayed at a lot of Candelwood's. Unfortunately it was a Friday night. Room next door must have had a party going on cause they were very noisy until around 1 am when I called the front desk and they sent up Security. Then at 2 am it started again. At around 3 we gave up and got up after only about 2 hours of sleep, at the most. Other residents also complained.
I did talk to the hotel manager and he was going to give us back 1/2 our money for the room. He said they don't allow parties, but since it was a Friday night, sometimes they happen.
The room was clean and the front desk people were very accommodating. There is a McDonalds, KFC, and El Pollo Loco, within walking distance.
While they say their shuttle runs every half hour, you should still call so they know where to pick you up. On the Early Morning shuttle, 4 am, the driver didn't even get out of his seat to help with luggage either in or out of the van. Sorry he didn't get a tip and didn't seem to care.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by nicknamenot Candlewood LAX Hawthorne Not as Good as the Other Candlewood Suites
I just had a stay at the Candlewood Suites LAX Hawthorne on 2-22-2014 to 2-24-2014. This was my 3 consecutive stay at a Candlewood Suites, in the last 2 months. I had just stayed at a Candlewood Suites in Vegas & in Phoenix the last 4 weeks, and this one Fell Significantly short of the other two !
No Remote Control for the TV in the Living Area (I went to the Front Desk about the issue with No Help !)
No HD TV (the TV reception was Horrible)
No Guide for the TV
No Seating around the Table/Desk on the Living Area side to eat
The Desk/Table wobbled and was unstable
No Artwork in any Room, just bare walls
The thinnest Toilet Paper & Tissue I’ve ever seen
Now that I recall, I had an issue with this Hotel Owner 5 years ago, when we booked a Group Stay for 15 rooms, then when we arrived, the Hotel wasn’t even finished yet, and we had to stay at an Old Comfort Inn Property that they owned ! Silly me for not remembering until after we already checked in !
FYI: I will be also placing this review on every website I can find, so no one else thinks they will be getting the same Consistency at this Candlewood as they will at most !
Thanks for the opportunity to voice my opinion on our resent stay !

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sleeping well in LA Perfectly Adequate
We stayed at Candlewood Suites for nearly two weeks in January. We found this place had things pricier places did not. For instance, there was enough light to read in bed without hanging half out of bed with the book held 5 inches from the 20 watt bulb in some designer lamp. There was enough light to apply contact lenses and make-up. The room was spacious enough to spend two weeks there without getting claustrophobia. The kitchen in the room was modern, clean and well maintained. All the equipment in the gym worked and was clean. Staff was friendly, helpful and responded immediately to requests. We will definitely stay here again, as it perfectly met our needs.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mike3127 Best stay in LA yet
Cant complain one bit. The service and rooms are outstanding. I have stayed at Candlewoods before so I knew what to expect. Yet, it was the first time for my wife and she loved it. Clean updated rooms with a nice size bathroom and a full kitchen. My wife was impressed. So much better than the other big name LAX Hotel that we stayed at last year and just as close to the airport. The staff was outstanding, always courteous. Never in the way but always there to help. Location has several good places to eat, McDonalds and Pollo Locco Chicken right across the street, gas station next door and backery and bar just around the corner. We will be back, hats off to he manager and staff. Good Job.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Sanj67 Below par
Stayed for 5 days.was not satisfied with room cleanliness, freshness of linen. Room was not vacuumed on more than one of the five nights we stayed there. There were no coffee cups in my room. When reported, was given 'paper cup' as a substitute - was told that there were no 'extra cups'. Staff ok but not particularly knowledgeable. Business center - one printer not working, the other one did not have toner.
All in all, not a great stay.

Harder bed and no toiletries made this visit a bit less comfy than I expect my Candlewood experiences to be. Location was decent and in LA parking included made this location even better.
