I needed to be in Santa Ana early for an appointment with immigration - this Holiday Inn did the trick after a 15 hour flight, long wait at immigration and drive down from LAX - comfortable beds, clean - no surprises, kids delighted - we slept right through the night

I visit family in Orange County every year and usually stay at a couple of other hotels in the area of the airport in Orange Co. Based on the positive reviews in Tripadvisor, we decided to stay at the Holiday Inn during a long weekend visit in August 2014. On the positive side, this hotel is cleaner than the average... More

vinnyjake, We are delighted to hear you found our hotel facilities to be very clean and our location to be convenient. However, we would like to apologize for any inconvenience you experienced with an out of service elevator and for the long walk down the hall to our alternate elevator. The elevator issue has since been remedied. We appreciate you... More

This hotel is very close to John Wayne Airport in Orange County, with convenient on and off access the freeway. We ate before we checked in, so no idea about local eateries. This hotel has a free shuttle, a rarity for most hotels near airports in my experience. Right next to the freeway, but didn't hear a peep--very quiet. Breakfast... More

I brought my family on my business trip and they loved every minute of the week we spent there. Great location, clean and comfortable rooms and facilities in general, very good restaurant, but above all, a staff so incredibly friendly and professional like no other.

This is a great hotel if you need a clean, easy hotel near the airport, Santa Ana and Irvine. It's not fancy, but good overall service and breakfast buffet. The hotel has a shuttle service to/from the airport and will get you to local areas for shopping and dinner.

Came down for a business meeting and had my room cancelled at another hotel (which I will keep unnamed). I called the front desk and Clara saved my trip. She was incredibly accommodating and was able to get me a nice room that ended up being cheaper then my other hotel! Ill definitely be staying here again
