Great place. I had never stayed here before and will certainly stay here in the future. I wasn't sure where to stay while visiting my sister, now i have a place that is as comfortable as home. Thanks Candelwood for making our trip so pleasant.

Was looking for an inexpensive room for a night that was safe and clean for my daughter and me. This hotel was well-appointed, clean, great value and exceeded my expectations.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by markandlindsay Great value, clean well-decorated room felt new
Great little discount hotel for a Saturday night stayover. We spent Saturday in Solana Beach, and wanted to spend most of Sunday in Santa Monica, but have breakfast at Mustard Cafe in Newport Coast without spending a lot of money for a place we'd only sleep/bathe in for a few hours. This place was perfect. Clean, well-appointed room that looked newly-redone. Quiet, well-maintained, and with a few more amenities than you might expect. I would recommend it.

We have been using this property for our business team's accommodation needs for more than a year now. This is a perfect accommodation for long term stay and provides the best value for money among other hotels we tried in the vicinity. We look forward to keep coming back to Candlewood suites!

I would highly recommend this hotel. All the staff were friendly and made you feel welcomed. The room was clean and quite. The beds were comfortable. No little pillows here! I am a female that was traveling alone. I felt perfectly safe in this hotel.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by christo Outstanding Hotel near the OC Aiporta
Greeted quickly and warmly in what is, granted, a "non-grand" lobby, but perhaps we just don't need a grand during business travel -- just in/out into a hotel quite that exactly meets out business need. I''d sum-up this hotel as "utility-meets-business-luxury" -- it's not intended to anything more, and it does it quite exactly.
Moreover, the staff knows the best taxi firm to call, the best local restaurants, an directions to anywhere.
And, the Suites are spacious, clean, and stocked with anything that's needed to a multi-day stay.
The place is huge. so bring sneakers.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bounder1 Convenient, comfortable, affordable a great business hotel.
Conveniently located close to the OC airport, in addition to getting around OC because of the proximity to freeways. Large comfortable rooms for working. An affordable excellent business hotel. I would highly recommend it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PaSC2013 Exceptional staff, excellent service, great value, comfortable rooms.
My experience is that the staff is very professional, extremely competent and friendly; rooms are comfortable, clean and have all the right amenities for an extended stay; overnight dry cleaning service is excellent; great location just down the block from a variety of quality restaurants, shopping and entertainment; within 5 minutes from the airport; the beach is within minutes away. The Candlewood Cupboard is a nice value added feature especially when you just need something quick like a snack, tea, coffee, ice cream or even some item that you may have forgotten to pack. The on-site mini-gym is open around the clock and available to help keep you on target with workouts. The complimentary internet service is great. It is a comfortable place.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DonaldDuck61 Nice and very accommodating!
There was no one at the front desk of a nearby Candlewood where we had reservations. The night clerk at this property got us in and made us feel at home. We have annual passes for Disneyland and stay over for an extra day frequently; we have made this property our favorite on IHG Rewards! Thank you for taking such great care of us! :-)

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PHIKB Nice Stay. Thanks for the great customer service!
Decent one night stay. All was just fine. Cool that you can check out dvd's from the front desk. Housekeeping threw away my food preemptively before my check out but front desk was nice enough to reimburse my un-eaten meail with proof of purchase. Thank you.

The entire experience was easy, from booking the room online, to check out. Stayed in the deluxe room which was more like an apartment, kitchen, bathroom, living room, and bedroom all separated. Plenty of natural lighting if you wanted the curtains open but very dark if you wanted your privacy. Highly recommended suites.

Roomy, clean, friendly satff, and very accommodatimg. It's no surprise that they have such a high occupancy rate. I stayed for more than a month and they offered me a very reasonable rate. I would absolutely recommend it to anyone.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Kalboz An Okay Stay!
Nothing really special just the basic needs including free self-service laundry. Was given a suite on the ground floor despite of the fact of being Platinum member. Location is in the middle of nowhere. Must have a car to go to the nearest shopping mall about 2 miles away.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by raffiii Very comfortable stay
I was here recently for 2 nights, the suites have a great functional space with separate living room and kitchenette, just like a mini-apartment or similar to studio. Room was clean and well decorated.
Staff was very friendly and professional and the gym was a nice surprise - there were 2 treadmills (one very old), a recombinant bike and an elliptical and a stairclimber-type machine plus free weights and a universal machine.
Anyway, I would recommend this property and would stay here again without hesistation. Candlewood Cupboard is a nice concept and I used it to get some milk - decent selection of snacks and sundries.

We had a problem with the air conditioner and the staff jumped right on it. The problem came back later and they took 25% off our bill.. A very comfortable room with a kitchen. I would definitely stay ther again.

Our suite was comfortable and very convenient to the airport, as well as to dining and shopping, within two miles. Staff were all helpful and pleasant, and we would recommend this for an extended stay (more than one night).

Needed a room for a friend's wedding. This worked out great since it was clean and reasonable. Not too close to airport to avoid traffic noise and airplane noise.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by WOK13 Smokey the Bear
The two rooms I was given smelled like a 3 pack a day couple had stayed there for 2 months. I reserved two non smoking rooms but was given smoking ones and told that all of the non-smoking ones had already been given away. I was offered a smaller studio room but the staff never seemed to be able to find one and didn't bother to keep looking after my second day of a 8 day 2 room stay. After I brought this to their attention they offered to reduce my rate to the studio rate but reneged on that offer at checkout.
I woke up with headaches everyday despite using over 2 bottles of Frabreeze and burning incense constantly.
All in all I would never recommend this hotel, not even to my worst enemy. Smokey rooms and poor customer service.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Dotty90 Great service; kitchen is wonderful
Had really excellent service. They were helpful in trying to accomodate us with a handicapped room, and had advice for next time we make a reservation. The rooms are modern, very clean, nicely arranged. Great how the bedroom is its own room. Really helpful to have a kitchen at our disposal. It was very well equipped. The counter was perfect height for a wheelchair. Even had soap to wash dishes. This was a scouting stay to let family know if this would be a good place to stay, and I would highly recommend it. It's also centrally located in Orange County. One last note, the manager and staff on duty at front desk were very helpful and nice. Candlewood Suites has done very well to have them on board. This is our first stay at Candlewood suites, and it's now going to be our place to stay when we visit.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Wonderful staff
I had a wonderful stay at this hotel. The staff at the front desk were absolutely amazing and really made my stay much more comfortable.
We were four young women sharing a suite and splitting the bills between our credit cards. Needless to say, we were a disorganized mess. But the staff worked with us, separated the bills, and made sure we had everything sorted out correctly.
The staff made a point to learn my name, stopped me in the hallway to tell me I had mail, and always greeted me with a smile. Coming home was a pleasure each night.
The free DVD library was also a great perk!
Helpful suggestion- have a larger place than the stairwell garbage cans for people to empty their trash during the week.

gives me a good home feeling.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by julz DONT USE THE INTERNET
THE INTERNET SERVICE WAS HORRIBLE!! Now for the good report, for the most part, the staff is very friendly exception of one person who seemed to be miserable everyday. The other bad review is the cleaning was not very good. I would not give this hotel a good rating. If your like me and need the internet, good luck! I had severe problems everyday of my stay I had to call the helpdesk to change my IP to a new channel in hopes of getting better service

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Traveler0774 Good choice for a business traveler
Not fancy but this hotel has kitchens for those that do not want to eat out. Rooms are set up to sit comfortably and work and wifi is usually dependable. Clean and the staff is terrific. A small workout room and laundry are nice features.
A few comments....floors are wood and noise can be an issue if your neighbor isn't quiet and calm. Wishes...that this be a non-smoking hotel and an electric door at the entrance would be helpful to bring luggage in/out.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AndyG505 Best Hotel with Best Value in Orange County
I've stayed in quite a few of the hotels in South Orange County, and once I stayed at this Candlewood Suites, I've chosen not to stay anywhere else. The rooms (especially now that they've upgraded them all, but even before) are some of the largest and nicest in any hotel of this class. The amenities, especially having your own full kitchenette, are amazing. Comfortable, always clean, and one of the nicest and most dedicated hotel staffs I've encountered. I'm only giving them this good a review because they outright deserve it. Given the value and the quality, to me, this is the best business/casual-leisure hotel in OC.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Winder neat, small, quiet, new but with a bit "suite smell"
Stayed 2 nights with wife. But when I booked I didn't notice it only offered queen size bed. Staff allowed us to switch to 2 double beds room but that one did have kichen smell. The last day I requested 4pm check out but was only allowed for 2pm. As a platinum member this was a bit disapointed.
This hotel has a good location. quiet while not far from shopping areas (with car of course).
