Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by GlobalJ Candlewood Vs HIE
I have been a Holiday Inn Express fan for some years now and thought I would try Candlewood. I can see the value in having a small kitchen if you are there for an extended stay. Certainly this place is in a good location. But I won't stay with this chain again. Pillows were flat with no choice. I miss having daily room service. Rooms were musty smelling. Food selection in their pantry was all processed with nothing fresh or healthy particularly.

It's our first stay here for more than 3 weeks and really really love it !!! The room is very spacious and clean. Love the kitchen and big table. The free laundry is such a great thing with enough washing machines and dryers. Really love the location with nearby Walmart, Target, AMC theater, and lots and lots of restaurants. The front desk are really really helpful and nice. Just wanna send my regards and big thanks to all of them. Definitely will stay here again when we are coming to OC area.

I have stayed at this location off and on the past 6 months while traveling on business from the Midwest. I have always been very happy with this hotel in every aspect - staff, cleanliness, quality of suites and location.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by vgsjuju Recommend!
I stayed 3 nights for business, the staff was very accommodating and nice. The location was great and easy to access close to stores etc. The single suite was like a mini studio, the T V cable channel selection was great. I slept very well the bed and pillows are comfortable.
On another note there was a oder in the non-smoking room. They brought a plug in to the room and the scent was too strong so I took it out. They changed out the huge bathroom mirror during my stay, granted I wasn't in the room when it happened it was still inconvenient and felt intrusive. Not good internet service.
If you stay here it will be a good choice and great value.

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.

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.

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.

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! :-)

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.

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.

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.
