This is a good basic hotel. Everything works and the rooms are clean. Prices are reasonable and they even have breakfast (not just a continental breakfast but a real honest to God breakfast). I would definitely recommend this place.

The hotel is located immediately off the main highway where they just placed a toll road. Surprise! As we were driving from Anaheim, California all of a sudden we saw the fastlane tolls directly ahead of us and realized there were no turn offs or u-turns able to be made. We are from out of state and had no idea... More

Hi Teambono! Thank you for writing a review of our hotel, the Hampton Inn Irvine East/Lake Forest. We are glad you found our hotel quiet with very large rooms. The toll road is an alternate way to travel in this area but most mapquests/garmans show it as the fastest way. There are no cash plazas anymore on the toll roads... More

I usually stay at a Hilton but there was nothing wrong with staying here. The bed was fine and the breakfast was fine. I used the elliptical. Front desk was fine. The water in the front was nice. I would stay here again.
