From the minute we arrived , we received above average service. The property had great looking landscaping. Super clean in and out. Very roomy. felt like I was in a Condo complex rather than a Hotel complex.

This hotel was amazing for the price we paid. The staff was very helpful and kind and helped us with absolutely everything we needed. They were able to accommodate our rather large family (we have six children) with a two bedroom suite. Tuesday's free dinner was amazing and their breakfast buffet is pretty good. They also have a free shuttle... More

Good for travelers who like to cook. Buffet breakfast that's decent. Liked the multiple Waffle makers. Not far from OC Airport, stores, restaurants and South Coast Plaza. Apartment style layout. Furniture outdated. Overall, not bad for the price

I was on vacation with my family of 6 and we stayed in Residence Inn Costa Mesa. The location is in close proximity to South Coast Plaza which is like a 5 min drive and Mitsuwa Marketplace which is is Japanese supermarket. Apart from the excellent location, the suite room was very clean. The free breakfast was also a convenience... More

Loved the grounds and staff. Place is overall clean. Great location for us with free parking and some great restaurants in walking distance. King studio is small with desk area crammed into kitchen. Door was really tough to open and close, even for my husband. Sorry but the hotel just looks tired. Marriott needs to put some money into this... More

Staff in the lobby are so helpful and accommodating. Carmellia was a pleasure to work with and always made us feel welcomed. Breakfast buffet is worth waking up out of your comfy bed for. Also, the location just minutes from the freeway makes OC accessible for you in any direction. South Coast Plaza is just down the street! If you... More

We are in a hotel in OC once a week during the school year. It's usually on Thursday, but this week we are here on a Wednesday. This week there is a huge convention in Anaheim, and there are very few hotel rooms available, which is how we ended up here. It seems to be an older property and our... More
