Room was clean enough and spacious. Kitchen amenity was limited. It is located in a rather remote area - away from everything which may be good for some and not for others.

Great place but take your network cable

Pros: Free Internet, Quiet
Cons: wireless internet too weak
Let's face it, sometimes you don't want to go to a restaurant alone--especially yet another chain restaurant. I like Candlewood for having the ability to grab some beverages and food on the way from the airport, and then settle in and relax for a while. The fridge, dinnerware, and microwave are great. Really, I liked everything about the place--except the weak-to-the-point-of-useless wireless internet. I spent half an hour on the phone with their tech support (is that how you want to spend your evening on the road?) only to end up having to leave my computer at the desk where the miniscule network cable could reach. If going again, I'd stay in the same place but take a long network cable of my own.

Ok, minimal, smelly, cold water

I've stayed here twice. The staff are very friendly and helpful, and it's great that the rooms have small kitchens. However on my second stay, in spite of having a non-smoking room, the room reeked of smoke and chemicals. It smelled frightening enough that I wondered if I should be concerned for my health. The window was closed when I arrived -- it definitely needed to be open and with a large fan propped up to get some air moving. I kept the window open all 3 days I was there but it only opens halfway and seemed to smell as bad when I left. Also one morning there I couldn't get any hot water. There was evidently nothing wrong, I guess the boiler just ran out. It didn't seem overly full, but I always took the precaution of showering the night before. I will look for a nicer hotel next time. Safe air to breathe and hot water seem like pretty basic issues that one should be able to expect from a hotel.

Worst Managent EVER!!! STAY AWAY!!!!

I was traveling from the East Coast to the West Coast and made a reservation, but because of bad weather I could not make it back to CA on the arrival date. I tried calling ONLINE TRAVEL WEBSITE to help me get my money back or cancel and they tried over 3 times to talk to the hotel manager *, and he said, ""We already charged your credit card, so there is nothing we can do at this point!"" BAD SERVICE, especially in this econmony! I will NEVER book/stay here! There are so many hotel chains in this nation that putting up with this kind of treatment is not good!

Adequate

Stayed for a week during business trip. Hard to find, in hospital park. Rooms clean. Shower needed minor work, took 36 hours to get it done.

Decent stay

Room was very clean though very dated room decor and fixtures. Bed was springy and very uncomfortable and pillows were flat and poor condition. Clean bathroom and very courteous staff. Close to shopping and business park.

It was perfect. Roomy and very clean. Kitchenette is great so you don't have to go out to eat all the time. Close to grocery store and resturants. Great location. I definetly stay there again.
