We had a very pleasant experience here at the Holiday Inn Express. We checked in at 10 pm and were greeted warmly by the desk staff. The parking garage was attached with a convenient elevator. The woman at the front desk told us that construction renovation was going on but other than a few workers eating breakfast in the morning,... More

Traffic noise and very creaky beds made for a very poor nights rest. Pillows are like sleeping on a little bit of gause. Would not recommend. We loved the HIe in Utah we stayed at so we assumed this one would be good too. Not so.

We stay in the area a night or two every other week during the school year. Recently, we've been staying a few miles north, off the 55, in Santa Ana. I kind of wanted a change of scenery this week, so I booked a room at the Holiday Inn Express in Costa Mesa. The reviews were good and the rate... More

This hotel is currently being renovated. If you don't mind a little scaffolding outside, there are limited impacts to guests. Our one night stay was great. The employees were kind. The location was great - right off the highway. Filling breakfast and we were back on the road. Everything you'd expect from a Holiday Inn Express.

Let me first say the all the employees I encountered were extremely friendly and helpful. I felt as if I was arriving at a bed and breakfast with Mom & Pop. The lobby has recently been renovated but there is construction going on everywhere. You will find dirt on the carpet, scaffolding everywhere, and construction workers walking around often. The...

Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights while in town for business. The location is great, right off the freeway. I was hesistant at first as am usually a light sleeper and hate freeway noise, but was pleasantly surprised at how well I slept and how little noise I heard.

Fresh, super clean and very friendly staff. Good value for the money and complimentary breakfast always comes handy. Right off RT. 55, minutes to the beach and tons of attractions are nearby. Balboa park, Balboa Island, Irvine Mall and the very cool Fashion Mall.

This is a nice enough hotel, cosmetically. It is clean and the staff is nice. However, the internet is SLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW. I just ran a speed test and the results are 0.17mbps... like a modem! Also, they have it set-up that you need to log-in every time you turn a device on. Shouldn't it auto log-in as 99% of the other... More

Although the hotel is in the final stages of renovation it was not noticeable and we heard no noise or interruptions. It was a fantastic stay, extremely comfortable and clean with all the services you would expect from a Holiday Inn. The room was spacious with flat screen TV, although not very many watchable channels, in room safe and work... More

This review is before retiring for the night, as I now normally don't get up in time for the free breakfast. Though, past experiences with HI Express breakfast were always most righteous! Anyway, this hotel proved to be very nice. Parking underground is not as bad as other reviews. One spot for each room is available. Construction is an issue... More
