We came to the area for a graduation at UC Irvine. The location was excellent. The hotel staff were very helpful in telling us where certain restaurants were located and answering questions about shopping. Will definately recommend this hotel to friends and family.

The check in staff was friendly. Complimentary breakfast was nice. It offers more choices than other complimentary breakfast. Pool is not too big but it's nice, but it can get crowded at times. Rooms are good size and nice and clean.

Another excellent stay. The staff here is extraordinary and Barbara in the breakfast area is first rate. Thanks..!!!! My wife and I will stay here every time we visit the Foothill Ranch area. There are some pretty special reasons why we visit this area and the Hampton Inn is a part of that.

very efficient and friendly staff and workers. Clean rooms with refrigerator and microwave. Great complimentary breakfast. The only issue we faced was with the digital check-in since it did not allow me to change rooms after the initial check-in. I had called in to request for the change when the online change request failed but the message was not conveyed... More
