Since Candlewood Suites allows pets, unfortunately, pet odor remains in the rooms even after the rooms are cleaned by the housekeepers. The front desk personnel said they deodorize the rooms, but my room had a terrible smell. I assumed it was from cooked food odor from the previous guests, but if that were the case, the curtains and linens -...

This properties main asset would be their front desk agents. I was checked in by a nice lady, forgot her name though. I remember the awesome person at night, Jesse Granados. He has great customer service skills and is very knowlegeable with IHG matters. Being a Platinum member I felt great when Jesse informed me of my benefits and how...

We arrived at the Candlewood Suites at 11:30 at night because of an airline delay. We checked in and as we were walking down the hall we heard loud music Ok it's going to be one of those stays but as we got a little closer it was coming from our room they just gave us. Did they give us...

Staff was friendly, location reasonably convenient and amenities were close by. One day however the cleaning staff forgot to clean our room, but once I called them they reacted quickly and provided us fresh towels.

Our first visit to Candlewood Suites was better than I expected. The small suite was spacious with a kitchen area with attractive cabinets, sink, apartment fridge and microwave. The room was surprisingly quiet, especially during the week when it seemed many of the people are there in short-term housing. The staff are not at the front desk, but can be...

Friendly and helpful staff from front desk to housekeeping. Nice side suites....Bed are a bit firm for our liking but acceptable. Well maintained and Convenient location parking can get a little tight when the hotel is fully booked

Stayed here for 4 nights while at a conference in irvine. Very nice clean modern room - like a studio apartment- full size fridge and microwave - free wifi and free parking. It also has a gym and a little store to get snacks- perfect base and so close to everything!

We were extremely disappointed (to say the least) with this hotel in every capacity! Picked this place because it advertises "pet friendly" - there is one TINY patch of grass in the parking lot with a road on the other side. We were misinformed of the pet fees (ended up being 75 PER PET), the room was FILTHY - luckily...

I stayed here with a group of friends coming back from a trip to Mexico. We had a total of four suites.

The standard of housekeeping left a lot to be desired. First room we were assigned had not been cleaned since last guest. There were snotty tissues on the couch and smears down the mirrors. Obscene words were also written on the notice board with a biro. The previous guests had also smoked in the room and jammed all the holes...
