You get what you expect from a Residence ... clean rooms, all the ammenities, nice pool and hot tub. A gas fire pit at the pool is a nice bonus. A nice outdoor basketball court with synthetic base court. And of course, a very nice breakfast.

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights on points. We had mostly planned to tour Newport, Laguna and Balboa Island. I would have preferred to stay a bit closer, but for free and the amenities it offered, it was a great choice for us. We also used this as a stop before we spent a few days in Anaheim,... More

Hotel is very clean and furnished like all Residence Inns with full sized refrigerator and stove. Inclusive breakfast was good and complimentary wifi worked well.

This property is absolutely charming and homey. Yes, there are families staying here with small children, but from our suite we heard absolutely no noise and certainly no barking dogs as some other reviewers have stated. Our studio suite was spacious, with three closets, wood-burning fireplace and, of course, the kitchen. Since we last stayed here two years ago, there... More

It appears that there are many families staying on the cheap for Disney, lots of buses coming in and out with workers and tons of dogs barking. Close to everything but next to nothing. Drive the extra few miles to stay somewhere more exciting. You can hear all of the foot traffic above you plus doors slamming and dogs barking.... More

You can tell by my 5-star rating I think this hotel is great, and after living here for more than three weeks I feel very confident in my selection. The reason for our stay was an unexpected renovation at our home. We live about two miles from the hotel and picked Residence Inn because of their pet policies. We’ve enjoyed... More

I lived in this hotel for eight months due to an open ended business project in Orange County. It's an older RI and that comes with dated stuff and not the best layout - yet my stay was good to excellent. The staff, led by Sue Cooke, is awesome and work very hard to take care of their guests.

Terrible.....depressing...needs renovations, actually a tear down would be more like it. Advertised as a penthouse suite....ugh. Very old and depressing. It was like an old hotel...the luggage had to be dragged upstairs into the supposed "Penthouse". What a joke......no help with the luggage.

Stayed here for 2 Nights on a Business Trip. Had to tow my luggage a long way from the reception for a room right at the backside, not something I was looking forward to after a long flight!

This older Residence Inn is trying. Not one of their best properties. The kitchen/living area is poorly layed out. Very crowded with the sofa less than 6 ft from the TV. Same annoyances as other residence inns. No waste basket in the room or bathroom. You have to walk the trash to the kitchen sink. Staff ignores the water shortage... More
