Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jaybird49 place away from home
I was at the Candlewood Suites for 10 nights. It was like being home. We were able to get up and make breakfast and coffee at our leasure. The beds were confortable and clean. The location for us was perfect. We were visiting our son and daughter-in-law and they only live 7 mins. away. The comments I would make are. 1. To have a listing of the TV channels in the room. 2. See if there is any way to use a pool at another HI. property.
I will be back in the spring for another 10 night visit. This Hotel is perfect for an extended stay in the San Deigo area.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Warrior58 San Diego YES... Candlewood Suites NO!!!
1. There was a disagreeable odor in the lobby area.
2. i had requested that i NOT be placed on the first floor but when I arrived and checked in my room WAS on the first floor notwithstanding the fact that my reservations were made several months prior to my travel date.
3. The rooms were overpriced... the cost was way too high for the accomodations, amenities and services(none) offered.
4. I will never stay or consider staying at this hotel again. Should any of my colleagues who may in future travel to San Diego ask for a referral, I would not suggest they stay there!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 123Chris Excellent Stay in Hotel Circle
Excellent place to stay in Hotel Circle, far enough back from the freeway for traffic noise to be virtually non existent.
Stayed in a huge 1 bedroom suite which was very clean and comfortable.
Free Wifi is a bonus and the prices in the snack shop were reasonable.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by brianbrian Big rooms, but low quality....expensive
The rooms are big, but not furnished well. Too much open space and cheap furniture. The lighting is horrible. Checking in you feel like your checking into a mental hospital because the front desk are is not very appealing.... Awful and doesn't make you feel welcome

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mimi33 Great kitchen!
Wish we were staying longer. This is the kind of place you could call home for a few days with the full kitchen.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Carrot Great place especially for an extended stay.
Stayed 9 days and very comfortable place. Love the fact that the rooms are divided with door so one person can be watching television or reading in living room area and the other can sleep. Always great coffee in the lobby and two washers and dryers on the floor. Best yet they are free. With the mini kitchen, we were able to have the food we wanted with the convience of a full size refrigerator so were able to make ice and take a cooler with us during our daily travels. Both of us love ice cream and you can't keep it well in a mini fridge so were pleased with the full size refrigerator. Staff was very accomodating and very friendly. Only inconvenience we encountered, with weekly housekeeping, rather a pain to almost daily need to exchange towels. Convenient to everything in San Diego including I-8 & I-5. Would definitely stay there again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Merv73 Excellent Value!
The suites I stayed in were pretty huge. I know suites are bigger than regular rooms in general, but the 2nd suite I stayed in felt like an apartment...2 queen-sized beds in separate areas (each having their own bathrooms), a big living room area, and a more than adequate-sized kitchen area with pretty much all the amenities you need.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DavidAtlanta Well Worth the stay
I read other reviews and they were mixed. I choose the site absed upon the pictures, the price and the good reviews. Sometiems some people just like to gripe.
Its two raeas, a living area with TV, couch, chair and then a kitchen area and bedroom with TV. Godo size bathroom and I n like a bathroom with the show curtain that curves out. The room was quiet as was the heater (I can't sleep with noise of any kind).
The staff is trully wonderful.
There are no meals served so eating is on your own. No daily towel/linen service. Its menat for those staying longer. That wasn't a problem, I only change toels.in my house twice a week.
Next door is a waffle restaurant and its clsoe to a mall with lots of eating. I'd stay there again and reccomend it.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Tiger59 Candlewood Lite
This place was OK but it didn't feel like a Candlewood. The staff was cordial, the lobby clean, the laundry and fitness area very clean, but it didn't have that warm feeling I usually get at Candlewood. My room was on the first floor which was not good. With exterior doors and a window with a view of a wall, it felt like I was underground in a cold dark, basement. I asked for a room with a view but did not get it, though the place did not appear sold out. The suite itself was large, the kitchen was nicely updated, as usual, and the bathroom was clean except for hair on the shower walls. Water dripped from the ceiling access panel several times but maintenance couldn't find the source. I had to flush the toilet far too often to get the paper down and still it clogged up three times. The satellite TV lost several channels and it took nearly a week to get them back up. Lights are motion sensor, which is fine for overhead, but even the bed lamp was. So if I just lie in bed reading, the lamp would turn off because I wasn't moving around. Not cool. The light over the desk was too harsh, so I tried to use the bed lamps. However since I was just sitting at the desk on my computer not moving the lamps would turn off! I generally use the toaster oven but this location only had one which had to be checked in and out everyday at the front desk. I did not want to deal with that so I chose not to use it. Having just one seems odd. The toaster oven is a nice perk and is one of the reasons I stay at Candlewood. The garbage disposal was LOUD and sounded like it was about to explode. The heater was terribly loud, buzzing and rattling like it had loose bolts. On the plus side TV was nice and large but only had DVD player for living room, not bedroom, housekeeping was very nice, and quiet. Never disturbed my once.

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at Candlewood suites and would not hesitate to return there. The suite was quite large and the kitchen facilities were great for us.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by uniquemike65 7 night stay
We stayed at this property for 7 nights over Thanksgiving. Excellent location with malls, airport, Sea World, SD Zoo and downtown all within a 10 - 12 minute drive. We had a 1 bdr. suite that was HUGH!. All the amenities were super, including free washers and dryers. Wi-Fi was fast. The staff was very accomodating. The property showed some age but was very clean and comfortable. Pricng was 20% - 30% lower than anything around. If you need a long term (or a short) stay in San Diego, need room to stretch and if location is important , this is the place to be.
