This hotel is great!! The staff is very friendly and professional. The services are nice with a complimentary breakfast (everyday) and dinner during the week. They provide shuttle service to the airport and more importantly to Legoland. I highly recommend this hotel for anyone staying in that area.

Over all good experience but lacked customer service when checking in. We were met by Michael the front office staff who was rude, over talked me during check in. The room accommodation was good, clean what I expected from the pic on the internet. Pool area was clean but pool itself was small but accommodating for children. Pool area needed... More

Im a loyal Hampton Inn HHonors member so I stay @ the Hampton most of the time when traveling. I would not say this is the best nor would I say its the worst Hampton I have stayed it... its average for a Hampton.

Very little or no kids programming and no menu on TV. You'll hate this. This is the age of DVR's, Netflix, and streaming video you'll be amazed by this what you see is what you get offering and (some of) our kids will crawl the walls without animated programs on TV.

Hi Charles S! I appreciate you taking the time to review our Hampton Inn Irvine/East Lake Forest in Foothill Ranch.

Marie Ferguson at the front desk was so helpful to us. Exercise room was pretty small, but the hot tub was nice. Beds were very comfortable. There is a Circle K gas station and a Target store really close by.

Marie was wonderful to me and my family. Very impressed how clean everything was. Dining was a pleasure and the food was terrific. Marie recommended a few restaurants in the area and our choice was enjoyable. Cookies were the topper to our stay. Thanks

I expected more from this hotel. Right of the bat, I was put in a handicapped room which I never requested, which meant a ground room with people walking right outside. When I asked to be moved, they said take it up with Hotels.com. The room itself seemed like it could use updated curtains and the bathroom especially. Also, the... More

Hi Sandra Z! I'm sorry you were discouraged about your room upon arrival. 3rd party reservations do usually book our accessible rooms because they are our last king rooms available but I do apologize if the front desk agent came across to you in the wrong way. We do generally have a friendly front desk. We are due for a... More

Price is kind of reasonable range with complimentary parking, breakfast and wifi. Pool is available outside and you will be able to get some Calisunshine during your stay.
