This Hampton Inn is in a great location. There are plenty of places to eat and shopping close by. It's away from the hustle and bustle of the LA traffic yet only about 30 minutes to Disneyland. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

Greetings Daven2323, thank you so much for the great positive review. I have to agree we are in a unique location that offers a variety of shops and restaurants in addition to being away from all of the LA Traffic while still being centrally located near all of the great Orange County Attractions. We do hope you'll come back and... More

It was the cheapest hotel in the area! Beds were very soft and cheap. Sheets were very flimsy. Rooms were very old and not updated at all. Bathroom tubs were from the mid 80s...this hotel needs to remodel their guest rooms with new furniture and bathrooms!

Everything was great. The room was clean and quiet and the location was close to our visiting area. The breakfast was a bit of a letdown because they did not offer the very good ham and cheese omelets; otherwise no complaints.

Great hotel while visiting a friend in area. Not much around it but quick drive to Laguna Beach and other orange county locations. Very good breakfasts. Clean and comfortable - up to Hampton standards

Staff was super friendly and hotel was spotless. Loved the fact that coffee was available all day. We are allowed to check it early which was deeply appreciated. Breakfast was good. This hotel exceeded my expectations and I would strongly recommend it.

This is an excellent new hotel in a great neighborhood. People are friendly and our whole experience was great! My young boys liked the open pool and the breakfast in the corner of the new hotel lobby.

The hotel was clean, quiet and the staff was very friendly, taking the time to joke and ask about our trip. The breakfast buffet was the standard Hampton fare, but the area was clean and the staff kept it stocked

This was the best stay at any hotel I've ever been at. The staff was incredible and took exceptional care of us. The hotel was clean and had additional room darkening shades. The bathrooms were updated with extra counter space. But mostly, the staff was the greatest! Didn't want to go home they took such good care of us.
