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. Location is a little isolated but it doesn't bother me at all. It takes about 20 min from SNA airport to this hotel by car. 25 mins to Angels statium and 21... More

Location was very convenient to the highway yet quiet. I had room 101 and I would recommend. Didn't hear a thing from outside and very little from upstairs. Bed was comfortable, A/C worked well and wasn't too noisy (rare these days it seems). Breakfast was more than a defrosted muffin or toast - scrambled eggs, sausage and a plethora of... More

I spent 4 nights at the Hampton Inn (East Irvine/Foothill Ranch) and enjoyed every minute. The location was perfect (10 miles from the office in Laguna Niguel) and very little traffic. I would stay there again.

Stayed for 1 week, the desk staff wer extremely helpful, same for the breakfast attendent. Food selection was as expected. Complimentary internet worked, dropped out only once, bit slow - not recommended for streaming. Used the lobby computer for printing twice, worked good. Room was clean and housekeeping was as expected. The bed cover was lumpy as it has probably... More

We were passing through the area and chose the Hampton Inn Irvine / East Lake Forest for a night. The front desk attendant was pleasant and very quick & efficient for our late 10:30 PM check-in.

The breakfast bar attendant was the best I've seen. She was very attentive and friendly! :-) Everything else was good providing you didn't want to use the internet near the pool, just outside the breakfast area or workout. There was only an elliptical and a treadmill tucked in a very small area, just off the pool. The area was very... More

My family chose this hotel since it was close to relatives we were visiting. I initially thought it was out of the way, but it's great! Most theme parks are only 20 minutes away and the location is away from most LA traffic. There are many shopping areas and restaurants nearby. The room was clean and the free breakfast made... More
