My guess would be that this is either a hotel that was renovated or they had an odd piece of land onto which to place it so the lay out is just different. The lobby is the lobby. It's wheelchair accessible to the elevators with the use of a wheelchair list, meaning other will have to carry their bags up... More

I stayed here for one night and it was quite a nice place. The front desk people were very friendly and very helpful with giving me places to eat that are near as well as directions. They also got me a taxi to show up when I needed it and very fast with room requests. The room itself was very... More

My girlfriends and I always choose to stay at this Holiday Inn when we need a "staycation". The proximity to the beach, nightlife and shops is perfect without the expensive price of a resort hotel. The property is small, but offers great amenities, service and is modern and clean. In addition, my mom had left her shoe in our hotel... More

Overall the stay was good. Checkin was quick. Breakfast area was really full at around 8 am, sitting area was small. Hotel is next to freeway. Nearby are plenty of stores and restaurants. Hotel is not that far away from Newport Beach area. Would stay again.

Stayed here on business in Costa Mesa. This hotel was ok, but a little less than what I typically have come to expect in HI Express. Pros: - I had a room in the inner part of the hotel, so it was fairly quiet; - Clean, comfortable room; Cons: - Not a good location...on an access road right on the... More

First, the hotel is obviously a converted Quality Inn or Motel 6. The layout is horrible. First you can't park your car and check in, theres no space for you car. Then the checkin area is small and there are steps to drag you bag up to get to the elevator. The breakfast area is in an old room and... More
