9/16-9/19 of 2015. Motel stay

Pros: We liked its location, the staff, and the room appointments.
Cons: The cost was moderate and the location was midway between the airport and our family in Mission Viejo. So, we were pleased with everything.
Location: This location is quite near restaurants, gas stations, and good neighborhoods.
We were very pleased with the friendliness of the staff and the comfortable cleanliness of the room. The motel location was beautifully placed and easy to find. We have nothing negative to report.

Very hospitable staff and very nice rooms.

Pros: Free Internet
I'm not very free with praise. Rarely do I give 5s but the Candlewood Suites were really nice. We stayed two nights and then unexpectedly spent two more. The rooms were clean and inviting and the staff were all friendly and helpful. This is an extended stay facility and I'd feel at home spending more time there.

The Frugal Travelers Sweet choice

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, full size refrigerator
Cons: no stovetop
I have stayed at this site multiple times and find it very acceptable and a great value for the area. The RI about 1-1/2 miles from this location is about twice the price. Rooms at the CS are somewhat smaller and less "upscale" than the RI and breakfast is not included. But the CS has the Candlewood Cupboard which is much better stocked and with reasonable prices vs. the RI $$-gouging prices for minor snacks and toiletries..

Birthday weekend highlight :)

Pros: birthday highlight
Money is tight these days for most of Americans, including mine. Rather than spend a bucket of money going out of town, paying high gas prices or fight our way through the airport, we decided to have a holiday near home. The hotel is located a little off the beaten path in a quiet area, but close enough to restaurants and entertainment areas, if we wanted to go out we certainly could have found many options within a small radius. Our room was absolutely perfect for a romantic, comfortable weekend to celebrate my 27th birthday. We appreciated the Dvr player, where we watched some movies we had put off in the bustle of everyday life. We popped corn, ate pizza, drank some beer and hid away in our own little paradise. The staff were professional & supportive and the price was a great surprise, IT WAS SO LOW! Thanks for making my birthday a memorable one.

Very good place to stay

This hotel worked out very well for us. It is in a safe area away from freeway and road noise. It was very convenient to all the activities in the area from the beach to Disneyland. The kitchen was large enough to cook in and had everything we needed. There is no pool so that might be a problem, if one has kids, but kids were skateboarding in the parking lot. The hairdryer didn't seem to work, but I had my own so I didn't worry or complain about it. Mac Donald's and Subway are withing walking distance. The front desk personnel were helpful and friendly. We enjoyed this hotel. There is a hook-up in the room for free internet.
