I attended a banquet last night at the Holiday Inn, and it was a complete success. Our event had 25 people last night, but they have larger rooms too. The banquet rooms have new carpet and chairs, so the rooms look very fresh. The tables are always beautifully set, and dinner was terrific. We had the Chicken Florentine. But I... More

Check in was OK. Room was nice size and clean. Bed comfort was good. Our room had a mini micro and fridge. The complimentary WIFI worked well. There is an ample variety of TV channels--something for all. Hopefully they will keep this program line-up as I would stay here again. The bath room was smallish but clean. The interior hallways...

We chose this motel because we had evening tickets for a performance at the nearby Segerstrom Center for the Arts of a Broadway show on tour. The motel is approximately the same distance from the Segerstrom Center, John Wayne Airport, and Newport Beach--which was extremely convenient for us. We arrived on a rainy day (unusual!) and asked about the best... More

I stayed here for a few nights during a family trip to California. One of the mornings I went and had the breakfast buffet in the lobby downstairs ( I recommend it. I think it's $10 ). During breakfast I had to run upstairs to my room to change my babies diaper. When I went to the room my door... More

I don't stay here (i am local) but I have colleagues stay here frequently. The lobby restaurant food is very good and reasonably priced. I have eaten here often. On a recent visit my favorite sandwich (turkey wrap) had been removed from the menu. They made it anyway when I asked for it. It is a very generously filled tortilla... More

We enjoyed our stay at this Holiday Inn. The room was clean, spacious, and very comfortable. The staff were helpful in providing directions and suggestions for places to visit and eat. The only negative was in reserving the room. Somehow, I ended up with 'Reservations Counter' which charged me a service fee for the reservation and were quite rude. I... More

Our after Christmas mini vacation was started out the wrong way. We checked in at 7:00 pm and was given a room with one queen bed when a room with two queen beds was reserved. After lugging all our luggages up stairs, we had to move all our luggages to the new room. The 2nd room was not suitable for... More

I steered clear of most Holiday Inns in recent years because I felt they were outdated (even though many reportedly underwent huge upgrades). Happy to report this property is helping change my perception of the well-seasoned chain. Centrally located minutes from everything from Disneyland to Irvine, this Holiday Inn serves as a great value for travelers who want to save... More
