I stayed here with my dog (took off half a star for the pet fee - shouldn't be necessary imo) to escape from July 4th fireworks. Had a very pleasant stay. The suite is comfortable, great bathroom, spacious. Also deducted half a star for not having USB charging ports as a lot of modern hotels now have. Very nice staff,...

The facilities in this hotel are very good and the staff is excellent, very helpful and they go out of their way to help the guest and make your stay the best (specially Alrich, Norman and John). I recommend this hotel very highly.

This hotel has a homely feel. At the onset, it looks like a small hotel, but believe me its not small. It has many many rooms. In Fact, they are small suites with a kitchnette attached. I stayed with my mother and requested for two queen beds. The beds were superbly comfortable and huge. The kitchnette is a big plus...

Needed to visit a local company, took the train so had no car. This is not a great location if you don’t have a car, there are no dining options close by and the hotel has a very limited selection of pre-packaged foods that you can microwave in your room. This is a budget hotel and is perfect for someone...

They let you use laundry service but charge you for toothpaste. The room is nice, lean and spacious. Furniture is a bit dated specially the phone. But you have a whole kitchen with utensils and cooking pot. They even have popcorn in the microwave and movies DVDs for you to rent out. I would stay there again.

I so want to give a high review of this property! The front desk gentlemen were unfailingly polite, accurate, and helpful, even providing a bag of ice for a leg wound. The location is very convenient to SNA, just north on the 55 with an east exit onto Dyer and u-turn at Red Hill; and the return to SNA is...

The room in this Candlewood was clean and nice size. It had a stove, microwave, and full refrigerator. There is no ice in the bldg so yo must remember to turn the refrigerator ice maker on upon arrival so it can make ice. Good room climate control and ample closet space.

Stayed here for about 80 days and had quite a comfortable stay. Got a good deal on the room rates for an extended stay. Staff was courteous. No complementary breakfast, since they had kitchen in the rooms. Plenty of food places within 2 mile radius, so no complaints. Rooms were quite nice and clean. However some of the guests in...

The hotel location is quiet, away from any busy road or Freeway noise, and airport noise ends at 11pm and doesn't resume until 7 a.m. so that was no problem either. It's also located centrally which makes getting to just about any Orange County location pretty easy. We had a Studio Suite, which provided all the basic necessities to settle...

I travel often to the Orange County area on business, sometimes once a week. I've been staying at this property since 2008. This hotel has always worked out great for me.
