This hotel is in a great area. You can walk to a lot of restaurants and shops. Near the freeways and not too far from the beach. It's one of those hotels with doors that open to the outside, which some people don't like.

I stayed with the Residence Inn for a fortnight during a business trip and found the hotel to be very average. The room that I stayed in had very poor noise insulation. First off, the room wasn't ready even though it was prebooked and just came off an 21 hr flight and 3 hr delay due to an accident in... More

Nicely equipped kitchen with full sized fridge and stove. Couch in front of the TV, clean and spacious. Very clean. If you have to stay in the area this is a good alternative to a hotel as it is more like a small apartment. More expensive than most hotels but if you prefer to cook your own food and like... More

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
