We need pet friendly and close to John Wayne Airport to pick up our family the next day. It was perfect for that. But it needs a facelift. The beds were fairly comfortable but the other guests talked outside our room by the pool until pretty late. It was not a restful night. The staff was helpful and considerate.I didn't... More

The hotel was okay. I've stayed at better LQs. It's next to a Hooters which had some competition going on which I didn't want to see or hear. They were very loud patrons/workers in the parking lot late into the evening which made trying to rest in our room difficult, and not great for my young kids to observe. hotel... More

Hotel is nice, room were clean, and bathroom clean. Good WiFi connection. You can hear the freeway noise if you on the side of the hotel facing the freeway. Rooms are large. Breakfast wasn't bad as you could have waffles, cereal and yogurt. Parking is limited if they are full. There is airport pickup but only between 10 am and... More

I had thought I made a reservation at the Santa Ana LaQuinta but I had made a mistake. I have stayed at that La Quinta several times and it is just fine for a mid-range hotel. It turned out to be the biggest hotel reservation mistake I have ever made. If you have kids, especially little ones, DO NOT STAY... More

This motel is right next to a VERY noisy freeway AND.. a Hooter's.. so if you LIKE Hooters then by all means, come on in. The motel is .. well, on the inside it's clean and tidy.. on the outside it looks like a dive and some of the walkways were sticky with soda...but for the rest, then again it's... More

I read the bad reviews and expected the worst. What I found was a perfectly adequate La Quinta. Maybe on the more run down side of things, but my room was fine. No smells, no stains, no mildew, maid service every day. Yeah the parking lot attracted a varied crowd, there were definitely people smoking pot out there and I... More

Hotel really needs to be upgraded. Bathrooms had mold in tub and did not appear to be cleaned. The beds are very small - they seem to be smaller than a full size bed. Room size was adequate to get an extra blow up on the floor. Front desk staff checked us into a King bed room when there were... More

We stay here often when traveling to the Huntington/Newport beaches. It's close to a lot of grocery stores and a quick drive to the beaches/beach towns. Staff is friendly and rooms are clean. Great value!

I stayed here for a few nights as part of a large group. We had read the negative reviews here and were quite concerned prior to arrival. My room was ok, it smelled like old motel, which brought back memories of family trips when I was a kid. The bathroom in my room was pretty gross with mildew and long... More
