This hotel is one of the larger Residence Inns I've been to. This was our 2nd stay at hotel with family (once in 2012 New Years Eve and in April 2013). Clean rooms well kept in between our visits. The breakfast options are somewhat more catered to area (note: rice, seaweed, and miso soup mix available to cater to Asian... More

We stayed at the Residence Inn for a recent visit to OC. Very convenient to several restaurants including Souplantation right in front of the hotel. The rooms were very clean and updated, breakfast was pretty good for free. There is an apartment complex next door but we heard no noise and there was minimal traffic in the shared parking lot....

Let me just start with this - When I worked in the Corporate world, I traveled nationally for a long period of time. I can fairly say that this hotel ranks in my top five of any place I've ever stayed! Starting with our check-in - the front desk staff was above & beyond professional, courteous & helpful. In particular,... More

The hotel is in a convenient location. Close to the airport, restaurants and shopping. Overall, I'd rate it a 4 or slightly above the rating for this trip, but was disappointed that housekeeping didn't honor the door sign that said "No service, please". So at 2:30 I'm just out of the shower and housekeeping raps on the door then opens... More

We would stay here again.

This hotel did so much right that I hate to give it less than five stars. But I think that rating should be reserved for the very cream of the crop, places that don't manage to irritate their guests. Pros: Good location, convenient to lots of dining, shopping and other activities (as well as to the home of the friend... More

Stayed for a couple of nights while in town for convention. More than anything, I was impressed by the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. Excellent location near airport and close to freeways. Easy drive to Anaheim (at least non-rush hour). Free parking right there and good breakfast (included), which help add to the value.

Perfect hotel for family. Kitchen is a plus with full-size refrigerator, dishwasher and everything you need, even down to kitchen towels. Breakfast is interesting. Since a lot of their clientele are visitors from Asia, they have some asian favorites....miso soup, rice, sea weed... Evening social (certain days only) is an additional treat.
