Outside smoking should not be allowed by guest room windows. The windows open at this hotel which is very nice but smokers at all hours of the night can and do ruin that experience. If I didn’t have cancer I probably wouldn’t care as much. That was the only negative to my stay.
Room was clean, bed was comfortable, bathroom was good, casual atmosphere.

Good room

The staff for sure doesn’t disinfect the room. I wiped the door handles off with Clorox wipes and they were extremely dirty. Everything else was fine

Long Term Stay


July 01, 2020

I have stayed at numerous Candlewood properties and the Candlewood property in Lake Forest, CA is my favorite. The property is clean and well maintained. The area is in a business park and is very safe. There are great restaurant delivery options available thru DoorDash and Grubhub. Multiple grocery stores are nearby.

I have to say though the staff at the hotel were my most favorite part of my stay. From the front desk staff (Hal, Frank, Christina, Kim and Alrich) to Luis from maintenance and all the other hard working staff. My dog and I miss them all.
