We have been staying here since the beginning of February, while waiting for escrow to close on our new home. The Staff is so friendly and helpful all the time. They make it feel like home. We have the handicapped suite. It is very spacious and geared well for handicapped individuals. My husband moved in about a week after me...

Not sure how many people know but this is an extended stay hotel. So much of the facility is heavily used. You also don't get service every day like you would in ordinary hotels. We've stayed here before but not that impressed however we used points and the price was right. Suggest as others have to stay on third floor...

I just wanted to provide a feedback about my wonderful stay at CS at Hotel Circle, San Diego. Danielle was also very helpful in answering all my questions patiently.

Just had a really nice stay at this property. Very large studio suite, with kitchenette. Was in San Diego for the holidays for five days, and this property met every expectation; comfortable bed, large screen TV, and easy to get to. It's minimal service as has been described (you might want to bring your own amenities if you're particular), but...

This is a great property for family travel where service is minimal but the value is great. There is no daily service, but it is almost like being home and their kiosk is great at prices that compare with outside stores rather than the rip-offs that most hotels try to charge. The hot drinks available all day is also great...

I searched for a pet-friendly hotel with kitchenette when I moved my daughter and her cat from the midwest for grad school. Candlewood's prices were very reasonable! I expected an oversized hotel room with minimal eating equipment, but we were shocked to walk into a large living area, nearly full-size kitchen, an alcove with a queen bed and bathroom, and...

This location is quiet and accesible. The room was spacious and very clean. I wish it would had free breakfast. The elevator has some noise but nothing I would worry about. Personnel was very helpful and attentive. Overall it's a good place to stay.
