My family and I stayed here because of its proximity to John Wayne Airport and the beach. It was our last night of 7 after visiting Disneyland and going skiing at Mountain High, so we were thrilled that the hotel was clean and comfortable. I was even able to get checked in before noon, which was an added bonus! Hotel... More

No warm water for a shower in the morning! All I ask for out of a Holiday Inn is a bed and a shower. They couldn't even do that for me! Contacted the manager and he waived the $25 Parking fee for me. I won't be staying here again. There are a ton of options in this area.

We stayed here because we have friends who live near by and they hosted a holiday party. This hotel is clean, staff is great, rooms are nice for a HI Express and is in a convenient location. This review is more for room 201. 201 is right next door to the breakfast room. We are usually early morning risers (weekday... More

Excellent service and very clean, large and modern rooms. The beds were very comfortable too. Located on a very busy road, but close to all amenities. The pool around back is nice for a nighttime swim :) the staff were very friendly and helpful. Overall a good place to stay.

I read the reviews before I booked and they were great. I have to say that the service was excellent. The lobby was very nice and even the rooms were nice with the exception of the small tear in the carpet between the sleeping area and the bathroom. However, I just couldn't get past the location. There is a trailer... More

We've stayed at many Holiday Inn Express locations, and this one is by far the best. Great location near Newport Beach and reasonable prices - great breakfast and the whole place has been newly renovated. Everything is top notch. The staff is the high point - Tyler and Cliff were just as nice and pleasant as could be and were... More

Beautiful completely updated Holiday Inn Express with super friendly staff, especially Tyler at front desk! Beautiful rooms, awesome location to the ocean, very nice pool area, exercise room, and breakfast was awesome! Definitely the best Holiday Inn Express I have ever stayed in.

Holiday Inn express hotels very rarely get the excellent touch, but this one deserves it. The hotel has recently been refurbished and has a small pool at the rear of the hotel. There is ample parking including an underground parking lot, which was brilliant in the Californian heat. The reception area is ultra trendy and unlike any other Holiday Inn... More

I had a leak at my house and had to leave for a day while they worked on the plumbing. I booked a last minute reservation at this place as its close to my house. From the moment we walked in everyone was very friendly and attentive. The entire place was clean and the pool was a nice touch! I... More

I stayed for one night last weekend since I had to work an event at the fairgrounds. It was a last minute trip so paid a little more than I wanted to. BUT turned out to be worth it. The hotel has clearly been updated very recently - cute little trendy lobby. The room was bigger than most I have... More
