“Comfy, Clean, Convenient”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

We originally scheduled 3 nights, but ended up staying 6 nights. It was a great base for us to see the "OC", do some sightseeing and visit a friend. It was a wonderful stay! The pool was walk in warm which is HUGE to me. I really enjoyed basking in the Sun and swimming. Retirement is great, y'know? Our room had a double queen set up, and a nice chair stool set. Good size room. The staff were friendly and the service workers very efficient. The price was super and we'd stay there again.

Thank you for the kind review on TripAdvisor regarding your recent stay with us while traveling Orange County. The central location makes it very convenient whether going to the beach or one of the many other nearby attractions. We're glad that you were able to enjoy the large heated pool. Thanks again, and best of luck with a long and healthful retirement!

First, let me tell you about the "bad" parts of my stay--a pair of elephants were quartered above me for a few nights and clomped around till four a.m.--they also flooded their bathroom and good thing they woke me up with their clomping, as I averted a flood by notifying the night desk clerk of the problem when water started dripping from the ceiling around the fire suppression sprinkler. Some idiot with a twenty foot long truck and a huge trailer hitch insisted on parking in the inner courtyard instead of near the front desk in the front lot where there was more room, inconveniencing a number of people parked nearby when entering or exiting their parking spaces--not a dealbreaker, just annoying. TV pixilates in morning between ten and 11 (perhaps everyone is watching as they pack to check out?)--mgmt should ask cable company to install a signal booster or two, that will fix the problem. Those were minor irritations, though, and despite them, my overall impression of this place is quite positive. The rest of my stay (I was there for a week) was fantastic! Pristine pool, not new but heated (not hot, just nice), clean as a whistle and very nice! Nice dry sauna--some may like it hotter, it was fine for me. Seven person "spa" (AKA hot tub) near pool. Clean rooms! Central location! The hotel is on a busy street but once you're inside the courtyard it feels much more private, and the trees around the swimming pool add to the very nice ambiance. If I were to suggest any particular improvements to the rooms, I would urge management to abandon the slick "old school" bedspreads in favor of lightweight washable duvets, and upgrade the pillows, which were a bit flat. There is a continental breakfast (stuff like waffles you make in waffle maker, fruit, juice, coffee, toast, sweet rolls, that kind of thing) served in the lobby in the morning--I tried it once, it was very nice (slept in the rest of the time!). Desk clerks were professional; my key didn't work after my first day (mis-coded, perhaps?) and the clerk was careful to make sure that it was actually ME asking for help with the key and not some stranger who swiped the thing--that was appreciated. The wi-fi worked very well; strong signal and consistent. This hotel has everything you might need and is reasonably priced. It's next to a bar called Patrick's Pub that my travel companion said is a serviceable place with a "regular guy" atmosphere to have an affordable drink (I didn't check it out personally).

Room Tip: If you are sensitive to people clomping around above you, ask for a 2nd floor room.

First entering the room a strong cleanser smell prevailed. Then we discovered the soiled blanket and the hair on the pillow. Only one night and we were gone.

Thank you for bringing the issues with your room bedding to our attention. I apologize for the condition of the blanket and difficiencies in housekeeping. This is completely unacceptable and we would like to get this oversite corrected immediately. I would appreciate it if you could drop me a note as to when you stayed and the room number and we will see to it that corrective measures will be taken right away.

Thank you,
