Horrible - could be nice as the rooms are large. Unfortunately the place reeks of cigarette smoke - the smell is imbedded into the furniture and walls. I actually checked out and didn't spend the night because the smell of smoke was so horrible.

I stay here for several weekends. The room is quiet and sunny. The hotel is right off freeway. Nearby there are several complexes that have restaurants and supermarkets. The most near one Quail Hill is only minutes drive. The Starbucks there names its wi-fi 'googlestarbucks'. Google has a office nearby. Many people who go there are googlers. People in this...

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...

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...

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...
