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 the shortcomings I don't like here:
1 - some rooms don't smell too good - like people have been frying things in there. 3rd time was the charm
2 - Candlewood still has smoking rooms (even in CA) - so if you really don't like smoke, be careful
3 - the room I ended up getting has a pretty worn out cushion for the sofa
4 - like many Candlewoods, there is not much space around the queen bed
5 - the refrigerator in the room was a little old and noisy. I had to shut the power to it when I slept
The staff is friendly and helpful although my request for a room on the top floor was lost.
