I can't even start this review with "you get what you pay for," because even that does not sum up how terrible this experience was. I stayed here for one day, and boy was that already too long. We decided on staying here because it is located conveniently off of the 55 freeway. My best friend had just turned 21,... More

I recently stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Costa Mesa after looking for a hotel near the Orange County Fair. I picked this hotel after looking online because it had the cheapest last minute rate which was pretty steep. The location is convenient for those going to Costa Mesa and Newport Beach as it's within a short drive. The... More

recently stayed here on a business trip to OC. The hotel is very small and did not have a workout room or pool. There is also a major problem with parking here. The only good thing I can say here was the free breakfast in the am

The Holiday Inn Express Costa Mesa is one of those great hidden gems you come across by accident. The hotel is recently renovated and the rooms and property are clean and fresh. The rooms are of a good size and include microwave and refrig. The rooms were quiet as the hotel is next to a residential area. Parking may be... More

Honestly I didn't have a great feeling when I learned that my client booked me into a HIE, my previous stay at a Holiday Inn Express, left little to be desired. Upon arriving at the hotel I was created by one of the nicest front desk clerks in the industry. The clerk was so kind that when I walked in... More

I love the holiday express inns as we don't stay in hotels for the breakfast, but this one is one of our favourites due to the great location. Close to a Starbucks and Newport Beach. The smell is only in the elevators and due to a natural spring. Great rooms and good wifi. Will definitely go back, this was our... More

Nice hotel with all the most current Holiday Inn Express features. The carpeting in the hallway are brand new and different than anything I have ever seen in a HI Express. The rooms are all spotless and the beds are comfortable. In the room having the Directv is a great bonus. Had about 120 channels to choose from which put... More

Stayed here with a group attending a conference nearby. The rooms were clean, beds comfortable, and the breakfast choices were pretty nice: pre-made egg & cheese omelets, yogurt, cereal, oatmeal, pastries, muffins, and make your own waffles. Just off the 55 freeway south and close to the John Wayne Airport.

Nice hotel, typical for the brand. Slightly older structure; but fresh interior/lobby; etc. Staff was courteous, though I had limited contact with them. Stayed for business. My room was on 2nd floor, located to the rear of the building. Access was very easy and it was very quiet. Everything was clean/functional, etc. No issues at all.

I booked this room on business because it was close to John Wayne Airport and not a bad drive to the company I was visiting. The room was great, the bed comfortable and the staff very friendly and courteous. However when I checked out I noticed that I was charged $50 a night more for my 2nd, 3rd and 4th... More
