Stayed here for a quick stay over in Costa Mesa. Staff at check in were great. Hotel is consistent for a Courtyard - clean and comfortable rooms and average fitness center. With Courtyard you know what you are getting.....no surprises, just a consistently good experience. Hotel is perfectly situated and very close to John Wayne airport.

Where do I start? The staff is friendly, welcoming and the rooms are a great value. They have a comfortable bed, appear to be good for a family and there are nice, smoke-free property signs throughout the premises. Unfortunately, the joy ended for us a few hours ago when we awoke to the pungent skunk smell of marijuana that permeated... More

This is a nice property conveniently located in-town. Good security, attractive public areas. Clean & modern guest rooms. Comfortable beds. There is a charge for parking, but when added to the room cost, the overall nightly cost is still reasonable. The bathroom in my guest room had a shower-only stall. Although very attractive, the design of the shower stall allows... More

Been doing some regular business trips to OC recently and sampled various hotels in proximity to Santa Ana. I give Courtyard overall the thumbs up! The location is convenient to central Santa Ana (15-20 minutes via surface streets in morning rush) and also similarly convenient to the airport, and other office areas neaby (Costa Mesa, west part of Irvine, Newport...

Very pleasant stay, nice comfortable room, easy parking, Starbucks across the street. Friendly staff. Modern, good location. Comfy beds. We are used to staying in 5 star hotels and we are very picky and we were very pleased with this property.

Nothing bad to say, all good except not much noise insulation between rooms. Clean and fresh, what you would expect from a newer Courtyard. Good shuttle service to airport, friendly and accommodating staff. Across the street from restaurants, fast food, etc. Well equipped fitness center and outdoor pool/spa. In industrial section not much to walk and see.

Stayed 3 nights February 20-22, 2015. Everything was as we expected. Check in went as planned and we received our room key in short order. Room very nice, Bathroom roomy and shower good. Complimentary breakfast not included, but the bistro on property served very good breakfasts and reasonable.

We were a group of 2 couples staying here the night before our cruise with Carnival left from Long Beach port.

Close to the airport, nice rooms, decent gym. I'd stay there again. They were good about dropping me off at my meeting. They also have a decent restaurant for breakfast. tiny bar in the hotel lobby, and a small gym too.
