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

I wanted to take a moment and write to you about our most recent stay at your property (Hampton Inn Foothill Ranch).  We made a call prior to arriving (2:00) and we made sure we could check in early.  We pulled up at 2:30 and I went in and asked for a room on the third floor.

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

We choose this Hampton Inn because of location. Staff are friendly and helpful. We stay at third floor, using the indoor stair to get in and out of hotel through keyed side entrant. Plenty of parking spots event when hotel is fully booked. Room is clean, no smell of smoking. We have been to many Hampton Inn before but this... 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

We had four individual families stay at this Hampton Inn for a family reunion/vacation the week of July 4th. The location is right off the toll road for easy access. It's a quiet, safe location, close to shopping, restaurants, and beach cities, but not in the middle of the rush. The kids loved the pool and the breakfast (and the... More
