Great location, close to everything. Easy parking and they're better about giving you a room close to where you can park your car than a lot of hotels I've been to. Comfortable and clean room, friendly staff, a little pricey but, hey, it's San Diego.

I got in after midnight and had to wait a while for the front desk associate but he was doing something to help a guest who was waiting in the lobby with her dog. Candlewood has limited personnel as a way to save costs so it was no big deal. First off, if you have never stayed at a Candlewood...

I was placed in the disabled room and asked to be changed. I was told that had been the last room available when I had made my reservation & no other rooms had been available. I was also told that I didn't NOT request this room - I didn't realize that that was a thing. Yet my co-worker who called...

These are intended to be longer staying properties but they are pretty good value using IHG reward points so i gave it a try for a three day stay in San Diego.

We needed to stay here when our floor was being pulled up due to a water pipe leak. The insurance company put us up in this hotel and it was great for myself, my daughter, and my granddaughter. We liked having a suite. The only thing lacking was it did not have a pool.

It was our first visit to the network Candlewoods and in addition it was the last stay during our trip around the west coast. The reception very friendly and helpful. Room very large.

Candlewood is good for Extended Stays of several days to a few weeks, especially if you have business in the area and want more of an apartment room instead of hotel.

This was our last stop after over 2,200 mile trip in So Cal, Nevada and Arizona. It was fine for a couple of nights but is slightly out of the way, although only $8-$10 by Uber to the Gaslamp District. The rooms were certainly large and the place being pretty new was clean and modern. Our stay felt very comfortable....
