Main Place is one of those malls that hangs in there but just isn't the best place to visit. It seems that it is just better in the long run to go a little further to one of the larger, nicer malls down the road. The Macy's has been updated but the selection always seems "picked over". Even the Nordstroms... More

Main Place has really gone down hill, or should I say down-scale. The only reason I go to Main Place any more is for Nordstrom, and for my daughter - Forever 21. If not for these stores, I'd probably not go there at all. For a better experience, make your way to South Coast Plaza. You'll find a far greater... More

This is a very nice indoor mall with an above average Macy's. I was looking forward to the JC Penney store (we don't have any left in Hawaii), but they didn't have much, a Penney's problem, not a mall problem. The mall's lay-out is two floors, well-lighted, very clean. Staying in Anaheim, it was easy to get to, either via... More

Update: McDonald's is gone, so your cheap alternative is subway. Macy's was recently remodeled. Yes the outside of the store looks the same but the remodeling looks great inside. There is a new pho restaurant, plus an upscale sandwich and salad place. Still great for kids, but there are stores for the teenagers as well as parents. I work two... More

Like the stores this mall has. It was clean. Atmosphere was good. Will be going back. Victoria's Secret is not open yet, that's the only thing i was disappointed about. They have good restaurants after shopping.

This is my favorite mall in Orange County besides the Block and Brea Mall. It is two stories and has every store you can think of. I love the food court it has so many types of food. ;)

Found this mall very average. General food court area and department and speciality stores. Macy's looked very run down and need of repairs and overalls in lots of areas, but staff friendly. Different to what you expect to find in shopping centre in Brisbane, ie: no newsagents, various hair care/beauty products shops, chemists.

Main Place Mall in Santa Ana is a good alternative to South Coast Plaza, if you happen to be in the area. It is clean, safe, and conveniently located off of the Interstate 5 and the 22 Fwy. The mall includes a Macy's, Nordstroms, and JC Penney, not to mention various name brand stores and a variety of kiosks. In... More
