I enjoyed my 3 nights here, the service was very good, breakfast plentiful and fresh, small but useful gym and the rooms were spacious and very clean. I can't fault this hotel, the location for my business trip was ideal. The bar had a good stock of local and international drinks and the service was great.

We booked "book early & save" but had to change our plans. The deal we got had cancelation charges equal to the cost for the stay. We called 1-800 guest relations to explain our circumstances and Emma R. was very helpful. After a few minutes she called us to infirm that we were not being charged the cancelation fee, which...

This hotel offers basic but good service for business use. Bar and restaurant inclusive, thought not fancy ones. Reasonably priced and convenient locations off I-405 Freeway. Friendly staff with smiles is extra which I'm pleased.

I picked the hotel for its proximity to Verizon Wireless Amphitheater -- had a show to see there. The location couldn't be any better: immediately off the I-5 exit and easily visible from the highway. Irvine Spectrum is minutes away to the north, while plenty of "supplies" are available one exit to the south: a strip mall on top of... More

My husband and I stayed here over July 4 weekend while on a personal trip to visit friends in Laguna Beach. It's a great gateway location to jump on Lake Forest & take it straight to the 133 and head to the beach. We liked that. We also liked that they accommodated our request for a King bed, non-smoking room... More

This was a lovely property and although we only stayed there for one night it was just right for what we wanted; clean, well-appointed rooms with helpful and friendly staff. Even the Wifi worked fine.
