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

The high point of this stay was the breakfast buffet. I really felt like I was having a true O.C. experience. In addition to the usual waffles, scrambled eggs, oatmeal, there was : Rice, furikake, Miso Soup, various Asian and Mexican hot sauces, unknown sauces, seaweed, chopsticks, you get the idea. I told the manager that if ONLY we could... More

We are Marriott Gold travelers and there really isn't much to differentiate one Residence Inn from another. But, in Costa Mesa the staff makes the big difference. Everyone at the front desk was very friendly and engaged us in conversation. Staff at breakfast was also very friendly and helpful as was the shuttle bus driver. I hope Mr. Marriott takes... More

Stayed 2 nights for business because of proximity to the SNA airport, Irvine and Newport Beach's seaside dining. Property is starting to show it's age, room smelled slightly of smoke and workout equipment needs updating. Complimentary breakfast and happy hour were better than most other Residence Inn's I've stayed at.
