Because of Lorrie – the greatest bartender in the western hemisphere, and perhaps the world! But it’s not a bar atmosphere, it’s more like the family room in your house. It’s an open floor plan restaurant with a small bar in one part. Lorrie makes everyone feel right at home. She knows all the regular business travelers by name, and... More

This is our first stay here. Good location surrounded by other hotels and close to the freeway for easy access. John Wayne airport is a little over 4 miles from the hotel. Free parking and wi-fi are definite bonuses. The hotel is clean. The breakfast buffet and the breakfast items off the menu were really tasty and priced well. Our... More

Employees are extrememly helpful and nice. They were always friendly and willing to help. I was here two nights for a quick business trip so I ate at the restaurant here for breakfast and dinner each night. The food was excellent. The wait staff was very attentive. The room was quiet, for the most part. It was very clean each... More

This is my 4th year of staying here for 2-3 days in July. It is very clean, comfortable, and I think refreshing compared to other hotels in southern California. It is 4-5 miles from the airport, very close to major highways, but also close to secondary roads in case of highway congestion. The staff is super friendly, always helpful. My... More

I typically stay at this hotel as it is a preferred location due to work. I've really never had a problem until my last stay. Let's say the guy next door brought over some "entertainment" and there was lots of commotion and drama; luckily, I was on business travel alone and not on a family vacation for my kids to... More

We spent a good week here. The staff was courteous but we really didn't have much interaction with them. The only inconvenience we had during our stay was the main lobby front doors were inaccessible for half the stay.
