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. I am discouraged that you feel young families should stay away from our hotel due to the television programming. We do have quite a few cable stations to choose from although you are right, many are not appropriate for younger... More

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.

I usually don't stay out in Foothill Ranch due to fact it is rather far from where I need to work, however the last time I did I must commend the front desk staff, friendly, concerned and very appreciative of issues I had with housekeeping.

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

Overall a nice hotel however: My first room was already pre-occupied so they gave me the room next to the elevator which sounded like creeky old door always moved... Creepy. My company pre-paid for the room and sent of CC authorization form. They ended up charging my personal CC that they needed to have on file. Hot tub was out... 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.

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.
