Despite the surroundings, it was a very nice hotel! There was easy access from the freeway. We chose the hotel because of it's location for the event we were attending and when we arrived we were a little taken aback by it's surroundings in an apparently less than prosperous couple of blocks. We walked into a crisp and clean lobby,... More

After a recent two week stay, I'd say that this hotel deserves a solid 3.5 stars. My overall stay was very pleasant. I checked in late in the evening and was up in my room in short order. The room did have a somewhat musty smell, but opening up the windows or turning on the AC solved that issue for... More

Its a one bedroom apartment minus the kitchen. My kids got their own sofa bed and television. I closed the bedroom door to not hear Disney channel. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Great space. Having a fresh hot breakfast cooked to order was awesome!!!!

The hotel was very clean and there was lots of parking. We were in a queen suite and it was nice to have another room to watch TV instead of sitting on the bed. The breakfast was great, the chef cooks you eggs, hash browns, bacon or sausage. You can also make your own waffle and they had lots of... More

We were four people staying in a suite. There was plenty of room. The room was very clean. Any requests were met immediately. Good value. Easy access to freeway and airport. Pool was very clean and enjoyable. We were able to use computer in the lobby to print boarding passes and get driving directions to restaurants and and entertainment.

Booked this hotel last minute as we were seeing a concert at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater nearby. Hotel is in a decent area, easy on and off access to Fwy. Staff at front desk were extremely friendly both during check-in and check-out. The room was comfortable, not overly spacious, but they've remodeled them to be nice, with crown mouldings, etc....

Everything at this hotel exceeded my expectations! The staff was friendly and helpful and the breakfast was good, except they had turkey bacon instead of real bacon. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

We went to Laguna Beach for PAGEANT OF THE MASTERS...& this hotel was very close. Good breakfast ... traveled with friends who stayed in another room. Only problem: our room had noise from the air conditioner (not ours, we turn it off at night) probably next to our room..... People at the front desk very helpful and friendly.... Would recommend...

Excellent property. I have stayed on numerous occasions and have been extremely satisfied with physical accommodation and, helpfulness of hotel staff. Location is freeway close, near a multitude of restaurants, in a nice neighborhood and convenient to shopping. I would highly recommend this hotel for business or pleasure travel.

I was having a hard time finding a place in Southern Caliornia. The selection seemed minimal. Prices were high and the reviews were awful. My father's caregiver recommended the Best Western Plus because a friend worked there. The location was ideal. I called up and found out not only were rooms available but the price reasonable. I believe it had... More
