Being that we travel quite frequently for sporting events this hotel was recommended as a team hotel for our traveling team. Rooms are small and appear to not have been thoroughly cleaned. Surprise find was a huge brown spot on the sheet of the pull out couch. With other choices nearby would be wiser to go elsewhere.

We stayed here to catch the ferry from Newport Beach in the morning. It's super close to a HUGE mall, so great for location for any shoppers. However, we were underwhelmed with the actual place. The lobby was nice enough, and the breakfast buffet was good. We have stayed at many other Residence Inns, and the rooms just did not... More

The hotel is well located, the breakfast is great, and the pet-friendly policy is welcoming with lots of green grass around pet areas. The only negatives were: one unfriendly office manager (the rest if the staff was great) and a very noisy guest staying above our room. Although this wasn't the hotel's fault, it was annoying.

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 Furniture outdated.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

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
