“Spring Visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

My wife and I just spent 4 very enjoyable days at the Cozy.Our son lives in Costa Mesa and the Cozy provides us a very clean , well priced , quiet , relatively spacious and well located lodging when we visit. All in all..for the price..it's tough to beat the Cozy for a SoCal extended or short trem visit.JWM

I was looking for a cheap place to stay while attending a conference and chose Cozy Inn for the good reviews. The room was really clean (not a speck of dust on the counter or the tables) which I didn't expect. Of course there were no frills and I had to trek down to the office to get shampoo when I wanted to wash my hair, but the room was very spacious and well worth what I paid.

For a budget motel, minutes away from Newport and the beaches, I really can't think of too many negative things to say.

No, it's not a fancy hotel...it's a good-old motel. What I probably like the most is that the rooms are large...much larger than present day hotel rooms. Secondly, you can open the door...and windows, and get some FRESH air. That's something you can't do at most multistoried hotels.

It can be argued that the room is fairly spartan, but...it's clean, the bed is (somewhat) good, it has a mini-fridge, a micro wave, a fairly large flat screen TV and the Wi-Fi reception is very good. It also has air-conditioning and a small pool (in the middle of the parking lot) for those hot summer days. And...yes, parking is free.

There's no breakfast, Thank God, as I'm tired of old, stale bagels...!!! For the price you pay to stay at the Cozy Inn there will probably be enough left over for a nice breakfast. We enjoyed breakfast at Paul's on nearby 19th Street in Costa Mesa...minutes away. An early-bird special at $2.99 for two eggs, sausage or bacon and home-fries. You can't beat it....!!!

I'm tempted to give the Cozy Inn 4 stars, but...realistically speaking, it's only an "average" place = 3 stars. If the option was available I would give it a 3-1/2 rating.

Booking.com gives this location a good rating, but it is a terrible place to stay! The rooms are basically clean, but the towels are the size of a hand towel and old and often see through. The building is run down and has significant deferred maintenance. The location is at best ghetto, including homeless and pan handlers.

The worse part is the management! They appear to have little or no management experience, especially the older woman who works in the office, as she is not a nice person. In fact she is mean and makes you feel like she is doing you a favor by letting you stay there.

Room Tip: NONE Do not stay there!!!

It was the first Inn / Motel we ever stayed in, in any country and we were a bit anxious / nervous as to what to expect. We normally stay in Hotels but this was even better kitted out than hotels we've stayed in in the past. We were very impressed.

It was clean and tidy throughout - what more could we want. Fridge, microwave, spacious room & bright bathroom, big television, plenty channels to choose from, ironing board, table and chair, big dressing table (with good lighting), free wifi and free parking. Ideal for anyone really. We thought it was very well equipped.

I would come back to this accommodation again and would recommend it a friend. Pleasant stay in my opinion and just what we wanted as we were on a road trip.

Room Tip: We were upstairs which made it difficult to get our suitcases up to the room so I would recommend pa...

For a one night stay this was a good choice. The facility is old in appearance, but makes up for that with a spacious room, clean bathroom, and efficient check-in process. I can tell that motel is investing in the facility, but can improve more by opting for lighter shades of bed sheets and carpet. There are new appliances in the room, and the motel itself is minutes away from restaurants. I could have given it 5 stars, but will wait for them to upgrade the rooms. However, I will not hesitate to stay there again. Overall, it was a good find through tripadvisor's reviews.
