Room was very quiet and bedding was comfy. Breakfast was very good with lots of options. Hotel was close to our venue with many dining options nearby. Hotel staff was pleasant and easy to work with. Had a nice time.

My third visit to Holiday Inn Express Costa Mesa. Really nice staff and very helpful. Rooms are big and well maintained. Even you are close to a highway the room are quiet. The breakfast are not worthy to go for, typical Holiday Express type, could be way better. All in all a good value for the money.

My room was clean and so nice. The bed was amazing, pillows soft, and I loved having a mini fridge and microwave. Also, it was very quiet. The staff was friendly and honestly it lives up to the Holiday Inn experience. I would definitely recommend for friends.

This is a pretty good hotel that meets what you expect in a Holiday Inn Express with a clean and comfortable room. It is right on the 55, near where that freeway ends. You'll hear a bit of traffic noise, but that's to be expected just about anywhere in greater Los Angeles. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, including... More

We stayed here after a long, full day on Catalina. We live 1.5 hours away and didn't want to drive home after a 14 hour day. This Hotel was clean and very comfortable. The price was right and only 4 miles away from the Catalina Flyer. The free breakfast was average and well stocked. The coffee and juice was good... More

Very interesting hotel for contrast between the good things and the not very good things. The hotel and my room overlooked a trailer park but the good news is the hotel is only a few miles from the beach and has a lot of very good restaurants and interesting shops within walking distance. The hotel room was bigger, especially wider,... More
