This is my Go To Hotel when I have an early flight from John Wayne Airport. The added benefit is that I can park my car there for the week on their special rate and take the shuttle to the airport in the morning. I have found the staff is always superb and the shuttle is always on schedule as... More

My company hosted a gem and mineral show at this hotel in November. We made a lot of unusual requests and demands on the hotel staff, and their response was amazing. They anticipated our needs, and responded promptly to all our requests. The condition of the hotel was beautiful, very nice amenities in the rooms - refrigerator, microwave, and flat-screen... More

For one month, I traveled to Santa Ana California for 4 weeks. I made reservations to the Holiday Inn. I must say that the service I received was by far the best service I have ever had. I personally travel allot and I am big on feeling at home in an establishment. It was enough of an impact that I... More

I just spent 2 weeks at the Holiday Inn Orange County Aiport. For a Road Warrior a hotel can either help a trip or contribute to a disaster. I have nothing but praise for this hotel.

Went on vacation with my wife and stayed at this OLD hotel because of proximity to a friend's place. During our first stay, the room was generally fine however finding a live cockroach in the bathroom gave my phobic wife a big scare.

The service made our stay great, specifically, Lorrie in the bar, she got my food to me quickly when I had not planned ahead (twice) other servers may have been annoyed with me, with cause, but...

The building looks decent from outside but once you come inside, you can tell the wear and tear. It seems like the entire building has been somewhat affected by an earthquake since there are so many uneven/craked floor surface. The carpets looks old and dark. There is no smell stale yet, but it's getting there. For $120/day, the breakfast was... More
