Candlewood Suites LAX Hawthorne

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I travel to LA often for work and I travel all over the place so finding a place that is close to a freeway, isn't that expensive and that doesn't charge you for parking might sound easy but it's actually my nightmare. This hotel was close to a freeway, had a mini kitchen and that's super convenient. They also didn't charge for parking, the garage is strange since it's shared by three hotels but it's actually pretty big and the spots aren't the smallest things you'll ever see. It's close to LAX but that's good for me since I tend to end up all over LA. It was also incredibly affordable. I will most definitely be returning. I'm pretty sure they have a shuttle to the airport. They have a laundry facility on site free of charge, you can borrow board games or cooking gadgets and they had this outdoor grilling area. I've stayed at 5 hotels in LA in the pst 3 weeks and have had horrible experiences and this one is actually awesome. I highly recommend it. The rooms are modern and clean and for Southern California they are huge. Big yes from me.

You get what you pay for. The room was in need of new carpets and there was a bad odor coming from the air conditioner. Do not stay near the picnic area, people were there late at night making noise and the windows were not sound proof. I would not stay here again unless there were no alternatives.

Throughout my three decades of traveling, I have come to find out this was the best stay I've ever had. Thank you to all the staff for relaxing and enjoyable stay; Mohamad, Shaz, Inessa, Maria, Sharron, Sally, Brian, Alejandro, all front desk, housekeeping and shuttle staff. I would recommend this place 100%. Thank you all for making my stay so memorable. 10 stars to this property.

I was disappointed with this property. Too basic for my taste and no breakfast offered. You can get other properties with more services at about the same price. The intersection was noisy and the noise insulation is not very good... Noisy mornings.

I stayed at this property from 11/21/16 - 11/25/16 Traveled back home to visit for the Holiday. I took a red eye and arrived in the morning. The lovely agent at the front desk assisted me with my check in, and was able to grant an early check in. This hotel is in close proximity to LAX and the 405 freeway. I like this area and feel safe, however some streets are a hit and miss, but overall this area has improved over the years. Lot's of food in the area in walking distance.

Great property and great comfort. Staff excellent, especially Raniesha at the front desk, who handled a tricky situation with aplomb. Well located near the (clogged) highways and close to LAX. Fully equipped kitchen makes for in-room food preparation. Stove, Microwave, no oven. Pots and pans, silverware and a dishwasher and full size fridge. Beds comfy. Local shuttle. Parking in locked garage next to property. McDonalds right across street and Dollar Store within one block. Taco Bell/KFC nearby also. Near SpaceX. TV great. Business Center great with two computers and a printer. Lobby has faux fireplace and is cozy. There is a cupboard to buy drinks and food--good selection. Gym great. Lockered items such as games, markers, tape and blenders are available free of charge. Washers and dryers were free to use. TV had most needed cable stations and HBO and NFL network. Bathtub in my room. I gave 5 stars but the property owner could make an improvement... behind the hotel--visible through all the back room windows, is a vacant lot used to store trash in two huge dumpsters that are overflowing with trash. I asked, and the lot is owned by the owner of the property, who should do something to mitigate the trashy eyesore visible to everyone with windows out the back of the hotel (Half of the rooms!) The curtains blocked the view just fine and otherwise, it was an excellent stay.

We stayed at the Candlewood Suites to be near the airport for an early flight the next day. It was an ideal location, only a short drive away. Although Hawthorne is not what you'd call a city center, the hotel has a Starbucks, McDonald's and gasoline right on the corner. The sights of L A are near enough to drive to such that you could spend you whole vacation there. The room is spacious and clean, the kitchen is well-equipped and the dishes kept clean enough to use. The staff are very helpful.

Came in from overseas and needed a quiet place. Friendly, professional front desk staff. Very quiet most of the time. Though my room was on the side of the street that looked onto a busy highway, the solid windows kept out noise from the street until I actually opened the window. Very clean and well-stocked, stainless steel kitchen with full size frig. Spotless, free washer and dryer room which really came in handy. Close to market, fast food restaurants, and small shopping center and very close to LAX. Nice stay. Will definitely recommend and stay here again in the future.

Really nice hotel. Rooms were well equipped with fridge, cooking facilities, tea and coffee facilities. Breakfast was not provided but complimentary pastries were available in the reception area. There is a small shop should you wish to buy breakfast items (i.e. cereal). Free wifi. Free parking. Friendly staff. I would stay again.

Hotel offers free use of laundry room, rooms have full size refrigerator, microwave, dishwasher, cook top, no oven. No free breakfast, but had muffins in the lobby in morning, free coffee all day. Small pantry with food available to purchase with good prices. McDonald's & Starbucks direct across the street, Gated parking garage, They have 2 computers in the business room free for guests. The staff was friendly, free WiFi, , outside BBQ and patio, Only down fall was not having a pool and not having daily room service, but you can exchange towels daily at the front desk
