My husband and I stayed here over the weekend with our dog. Long story short, we wanted to be near his work so we could maximize the little time we had together this weekend. It was not meant to be a romantic weekend. I read a lot of the reviews on multiple sites and was a bit wary about the...

Its my first stay at Candlewood and I am super impressed. It has a nice sized kitchen with utensils, a stove, coffee maker and a fridge all of which work great. Plenty of storage space, a nice couch, its never too hot or cold...I can open the windows if I want. Plus it has a nice little bedroom and a...

My work consist of a lot of travel and whenever I can I stay at an IHG property. So also on this occasion which was my actual holiday. I have never stayed at a Candlewood Suits property as we do not have them in Australia. From the moment we got checked by Erin (front desk)everyone and everything at this property...

Rooms are fine but the halls and stairwells stink like smoke and the chemical they used to try and cover it. Its so bad that it doesn't matter if we give the rest of the hotel 5 stars we can not stay there again. Set AC to 60 and it never got below 78. nothing within walking distance

First off this place is hard to find, its hidden way in the back off of Sand Canyon the hotel is not visible from the street. Right next to Hoag Hospital. The rooms are large they feature a small kitchenette, with refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, and 2 small burners, the room is well equipped with all types of utensils to...

I needed accommodations for weekend events in the general area and chose this based on their affiliation with IHG (able to use or earn points). It was a little tricky to find - there is a sign at the road, but no directional signs once you make the turn off of Sand Cyn. Just bear left and follow the signs...

My son and I came to Irvine to enroll in IVC. He is an attending freshmen and had to go through a whole process to resister so we wanted to be close to the school and get the lay of the land as we searched for a place he could call home. We had a car so getting around was...

The location is really not too bad - Sandy Canyon seems to be the south-most major road for Irvine. It is a short drive to the many strip malls in Irvine - if you have a car. The good thing is that it is away from the freeways and it is quiet. This is a typical renovated Candlewood. Some of...

Hotel is good, main problem is the location, far away from any market, for that one need to cross the highway, Not recommended unless you have a car. Crossing the higway by walking is impossible no way. Mostly the Medicals around.

I was unsure about this hotel but that went away shortly after arriving. It's not your resort hotel (all rooms have full kitchens, no pool, no breakfast, no hot tub), but it's great if your there a long time. They do have a store in the hotel where you can buy food, snacks, and drinks. Highly recommend this hotel.
