Close to the airport, with free parking and free breakfast. Nice rooms, and more important, clean and quiet. Everything the RI should be, at a modest price point. Very good shopping nearby and plenty of great restaurants within 5 minutes drive. One of the nicer venues near the airport, especially because of the reasonable tab.

I often seek out a Residence Inn if there is one where I am traveling. This one was nice, clean, recently updated, and in a clean, fresh area. It's close enough to UC Irvine to visit my daughter, the two bedroom suite is always a great way to keep enough space between family members, and we get to bring our... More

The good: This hotel is updated. The bathroom is super chic with floor to ceiling glass doors. The bed was comfy. The room itself is huge. I had a kitchen with a full fridge and freezer. The parking is free. The breakfast was typical but good. The pool area was very nice and clean. It's suuuuper cheap for what you... More

Nicely furnished hotel near U.C.I. that is great for traveling families. It has a very nice lobby, free breakfast and breakfast area has T.V.'s, and a nice pool. Big fire pit to sit and enjoy the evening. Beer, wine and light snacks are available at the lobby store. Free newspapers each morning.

We spent the better part of two months at this Marriott location and left with such mixed feelings about the hotel! The things that were good about it were very good. The things that were bad, were horrid. The best part of staying here was the staff. They could not have been nicer, nor tried harder to assist us in... More

Rooms are very nice. Very clean and well maintained. Lots of restaurant options around here. The breakfast is pretty good. The reception is a hit or miss. A couple of nights real good and even replaced dinner. One night wasn't. Very nice outdoor seating.

Loved this property! If you ate traveling with a group, Call Mackenzie!! She set up our Soccer Team from Portland very well. Rooms were perfect. 2 bdr suites are the way to go. Breakfast was great however make sure if you need an early weekend breakfast before a game, check at the desk for the serving times are later.

For Spring Break with my family, I was looking for a location that wasn't too close to Disneyland (wanted quieter location) and had easy access to the beach. Irvine was the perfect location. And the Residence Inn near the John Wayne Airport offered 2 bedroom suites (one bedroom for me and my husband, the other for my teenager). I've stayed... More

I just stayed here many times. The rooms have been upgraded and they are very appealing. Nothing over-the-top, just pure clean and functional. I also did an internet speed test and it came in at 1 MPS, which is really slow these days. Fine for email but if you want to watch video, it would be sluggish. The breakfast, parking... More
