I forgot to take a picture of the thermostat, but it had a motion sensor on it. It was set to turn off when you were not in the room. However, it was on a wall that was not facing the bed. So it would turn off while you were asleep. I ended up opening the window for some cool...

Dear Nashvilleguy42, Thank you for taking the time in providing us your feedback. We value your opinion. We are in the middle of changing our motion sensors in our hotel rooms. This will help maintain the desired temperature for our guests. We hope to see you next time you are in Lake Forest. Sincerely, Daniel F.

On May 20th, me and my husband traveled from Las Vegas back to LA and check-in "Motel 6". It was an awful night. (too much noise + no enough furniture except 2 twin beds) We moved to Candlewood Suites, Lake Forest next day noon. It felt just like going back our own home in Taiwan. They got everything we need...

The new beds are super comfy. Good sized and quality flatscreen was nice too. Lending locker with juicers is welcome addition. Staff is great here and this is a nice quiet location. Good for business travel particularly if you enjoy making your own meals in lieu of eating out every meal while on the road.

Want to thank Dawn, the sales director as well as Daniel and Barnard, the people at the desk for a pleasant stay. The facility was clean and quiet. The rooms are laid out well for business travelers including a large desk and a comfortable office chair at the desk. Internet was free and non-intrusive. Even the on-site laundry has no...

Was given a hard time after being charged twice on my credit card. I was not the only person who faced this issue. The issue got resolved on its own on the last day but I went through hell for more than 10 days with no real help.

I was disappointed right away Upon my arrival. The couple in front of me was given a full description of the amenities of the Hotel/motel. The front desk person didn't even make 1 mention of any amenities but definitely didn't make me feel welcome. The title " suites " does not fit the usual suite. It's basically a 1 room...

This place is very good if you are going to be staying for a long trip and don't want to eat out. The rooms are basically one bedroom apartments, with a Kitchenette, separate bedroom, and an on site laundry. My one complaint was that the morning of my departure the hot water ran out. They don't have a free breakfast,...
