I went to Candlewood with my wife for two weeks for a study proposal. Price is good, but I didn't see, clearly, in any place at the site, that the housekeeping would come once a week. Impossible to keep clean if there is a kitchen inside the suite. Staff very good, specially a young Latin one. The American was to...

This place is so hard to find, just like others have stated. Wasted 20 minutes circling around. Just know it's near Hoag Hospital. Room was dirty (hairs) dated, and musty. Most CS smell amazing as soon as you walk in. Would never stay here again. My wake up call was even late. Since when does 15 sound like 20? I...

We spent 3 nights here while on business. The mattress was not the best and the A/C had some problems but after we notified the front desk, they sent someone in to fix it promptly. It would have been nice to have a restaurant close by but we enjoyed the convenience of having a room with a kitchenette. There is...

Great location and value if you are visiting Hoag or Kaiser hospitals. Ample lighted parking. Staff very friendly and acknowledged IHG Club status. Room was clean well appointed, with good WiFi and plenty of desk space. Would stay here again.

Very quiet except for the typical midnight car alarm from some guest. Staff friendly, place is clean, adequate. I won't say its super nice, it could use some updating but for the price its great. Nice bike / jog path right out the door. Bed was comfy, can sleep with windows open and get some real air.

The renovation to Candlewood was ok, the one thing I found odd was all three facilities were connected. There wasn't much space to move around in the gym. Also, the room we stayed in had major flaws such as unmatched paint, mildew build up around the bathroom sink and tub, and wall thermostat not functioning properly. Inspector needs to check...
