Stayed here with my boyfriend to see Incubus at the Irvine Meadows amphitheater (formerly Verizon Wireless amphitheater). I called to ask how far they are from the venue and the person i Spoke to first said he does not know what or where the Irvine Meadows is. When i said it used to be Verizon Wireless he said it's about... More

Booked this hotel through a third party opaque style site. Didn't really know what to expect but were warmly greeted and well taken care of by the night manager. I believe his name was Christopher? We had a couple of small requests that we ask of every hotel we stay at but aren't always met but Christopher made us feel... More

The staff in almost every department I encountered left much to be desired. I work pretty close by but Staybridge, my usual place was booked. Check in took forever, and clerk answered every question like it was an annoyance. My gf asked for a few extra things, pillow, blanketmp shampoo and conditioner, two calls and four hours later we got... More

My husband and son stayed here last year and had an AMAZING experience. Great staff, beautiful rooms and overall just a great time. I have recommended this hotel to a few of my colleagues (we work in the hotel business in Las Vegas) and they all came back with so so reviews. My family and I came back this weekend... More

I can't speak highly enough about this location that is so *consistently* good! Rooms are clean and comfortable, restaurant's breakfast and dinner options are great, pool area is well-maintained. I've found every single staff member from front desk, housekeeping, maintenance, restaurant, and bar to be super friendly and always happy to assist. Proximity to highway is a great asset, and...

This place is tucked away and even though it is near the freeway it is very quiet and cozy. It has a very new for you and looks quite modern and fashionable. There are nice sitting areas to visit in the lobby and it is a perfect place to meet out-of-town guests. The rooms are clean and well equipped as... More

We booked a room here since we were attending a conference the next day. The room was clean, updated and well appointed. We were pleasantly surprised by the refrigerator, the microwave, and coffee maker. The beds were a dream! I would highly recommend this hotel to my friends!

I stayed in this hotel June 8th112, 2015. I liked it alot. It's much better than the average Holiday Inn. Great Restaurant and Bar onsite with live entertainment each night. Rooms were very clean, so was the on site fitness room. The pool was a tad bit small though. Oh and Free Wifi :-)

I was in Irvine was just one night for a business meeting the next day. This hotel was perfect. The room was clean and looked new and had a chair for relaxing and a desk for working. The WiFi was strong. I paid $5 with the reservation and had a breakfast buffet, which was nothing special but served the purpose.... More
