Qantas took a group of us to this hotel when we had a 26 hour flight delay. The bus driver apologized to us as we approached, saying maybe it will be better inside than it looked like on the outside...he was wrong.!! Dirty carpets beyond belief, stained chair in the room, hallway where I was supposed to take a room... More

This place isn't much to look at and they do charge $10.00 a guest but, The rent is super mega cheap! You're getting a huge room with a big bed. Their is free internet which is awesome. You get a nice balcony. The staff isn't so terrible after all, the only rule really is don't use the stairs and pay... More

As for all the bad reviews, the owner of the hotel has changed and boy has it changed! No longer is the building out front abandoned. It is in constant use. The only bad part about it is there are alot of quinceneras that like to play LOUD music. But only until midnight and even then its not usually all... More

We just stayed at this hotel December 25, 2009-December 26, 2009 First off, we did know that 2 nights for $50.00 wasn't going to get us a luxurious place to stay. (It was $50.00 per night but we had a $50.00 coupon for Expedia) At first glances it wasn't so bad. When we checked in they didn't even know what... More

I read all the reviews and figured that everyone was probably overeacting. Or really picky....but it really is as bad as everyone says it is. For starters it was better suited for a haunted house than a hotel. No doubt one of the creepiest places I have ever been to in my life. The elevator was squeaking and went by... More

I wanted to stay here to save a few bucks and I truly wanted to see if the hotel was as bad as ALL of the reviews say it is.... and it was. I do not believe in ghost but it was very creepy at the Santa Ana Plaza. If I didn't know better, I would think this place was... More

Hopefully, this hotel will not be around much longer. The faucet on the sink barely worked, the shower was too hot, and the desk attendant was asleep when I checked out at 5:15am. You can tell it was once a nice place, but it has been poorly kept.

Santa Ana Plaza Hotel is the only one that has a view of the Ocain and motains. It's the tallest hotel in the earea. And for the price of a motel 6 across the street! You can look down and see the Santa Ana Zoo! All the freeways at night all the lights way from the noise. You can even... More
