Suite was spacious. I used the desk to do some writing and such. Living room area sofa was OK, not the most comfortable when just lounging and watching TV. The TV had some problems with changing channels. But everything on was on the World Cup. Kitchenette counter with sink, microwave, and small refrigerator was a nice. We would have used... More

My wife and I and two kids (8 and 6 months) stayed here for a week on vacation and enjoyed it. Clean, quiet room, good breakfast and very friendly employees. We saw some less than stellar reviews on TripAdvisor but those definitely do not reflect our experience. One minor note that is of no fault of the hotel - if... More

The employees do not care about guests. Better service can be had from talking to a brick wall. The rooms are unorganized and missing items. Motel style setup for an outrageous price. Extremely poor hotel design forces you to climb 4 floors of stairs if you have a room on the highest floor, or try to find the poorly labeled... More

Nice big rooms which are separate from the bedroom, up-to-date decorations, and a hot continental breakfast. It’s not the Taj Mahal but it is a place that I can hang my hat that doesn’t empty my pockets nor compromise my security while visiting here in Southern California.

From the moment I stepped into the lobby, I felt they just did not care. No smile or greeting at the front desk. Did not explain about parking, where elevator was, where & when the breakfast was held and hrs. We were like lost sheep wandering around looking for these places. I would have to be desperate for a place... More

Stayed here one night when on business in Irvine as this was close to where I had to attend my meetings. My room was on the 4th floor and was nice and big, like a suite. It was cleanand comfortable but not 'stnd-out' in any way... Just Average. It had a wash basin in the bedroom on the dresser next... More

Free Parkingt, free internet, free cooked to order breakfast....what's not to like? Separate bedroom and sitting room with 2 TV's. A friendly staff, good location. Mac and Don's just up the street. This survey demands 200 characters, so this should do it. lol
