Good location 15 min from Laguna beach. The rooms are spacious and very clean. Rooms are modern up to date. The best are absolutely soft and comfy. Only drawback for me is the workout room is a cardio room. No weights. And the pool seems to be under construction. Other than that. Absolutely great stay and no doubt I would... More

I travel a lot for business, and I get the best sleep at this hotel. Bed is comfortable, pillows aren't flat, room is quiet. In-house restaurant is very good. Staff is very friendly and accommodating.

Extremely polite/friendly at check-in, made arrangements for early check-in. We had stayed night before at a different hotel, and were very disappointed ! This was such a welcome change !!! Room Very Very Clean. Very convenient location.

We stayed at the Hills Hotel for my granddaughter's wedding along with the entire wedding party and other guests. This hotel was first the most reasonable and easy to work with in the area. We tried to work with the Marriott Renaissance and they were impossible and totally disinterested. The Hills Hotel has great customer service, easy to work with,... More

My room was very clean and available for my right at the arrival time. Parking is large and free of charge. Bar on the first floor was good and free glass of vine... More

My husband and I stayed here for 1 night on Thanksgiving Day. It was conveniently by the freeway, the 24Hr Fitness, and a yoga studio . I mention this because their weight room was super sad and my husband and I work out everyday. It had a 80's feel to it, and had super dim lighting everywhere. The shower is... More

I stayed at the Hills Hotel for 3 nights on business in November. The hotel is renovated to attempt a "luxe" look, and it partially succeeds. The rooms are nice enough, especially the bathroom, but the finishings already look a bit worn. My review would have been 4 start if not for the fact that sound really carries from room... More

I often stay at the Hills Hotel when visiting clients in the Mission Viejo area. The rooms are oversize and have been remodeled very nicely. The location is very convenient and the staff has always delivered great customer service!

Every time we stay here, at least once to twice a year, we have never been disappointed! Love the rooms and the chic entrance and lobby. Haven't had the pleasure to experience the restaurant/bar yet but looking forward to our next trip back!

This was great for my business travel that took me south of LA, and it was a quiet option away from the Disney/tourist crowd. The rooms were nice, clean, and comfortable. The cafe breakfast was only ok, but there's a Starbucks and several fast food places within walking distance, and other restaurants just a short drive away on Alicia Parkway.
