“Great stay and my dog loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

We stayed over the 4th of July and had a great experience. The staff was exceptional, especially everyone at the front desk. The hotel is super clean for a dog friendly establishment. Breakfast was very good - no complaints at all.

Room Tip: top floor was very quiet

5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

We have stayed at this property a handful of times on visits to Orange County. It is a modern hotel located near the 405, restaurants, parks, and a grocery store just down the road. Our stays have almost always been quiet. We love the kitchens and breakfast in the mornings. The pool & spa were closed over July 4th and we were disappointed to find that out after heading downstairs in our swim gear with our young son, who was quite disappointed. We understand pools need to be closed for maintenance sometimes, but it would have been nice to have been notified of that at check-in. Otherwise, we had a great visit as usual. Parking was plentiful and we visited the shopping center down the road with Einstein's Bagels, Jamba Juice, Togo's, and Rubio's. Very kid-friendly.

Afc76,

Thank you very much for the kind words regarding our hotel. We are exceptionally happy to hear that you enjoyed your Fourth of July with us.

I apologize about the pool closure that weekend. We did experience a chemical imbalance that resulted in a temporary pool closer that weekend, something not very common. Typically when schedule all maintenance to be completed at a more appropriate time.

Thank you once again for your continued loyalty and great comments. We hope to see you again when you visit the Orange County area.

We stayed there a couple nights after checking out from another city in Century City and we enjoyed our stay a lot. The staffs were all very friendly, the room was very spacious and the bed was comfortable. Though the breakfast was only okay, the location and everything else I mentioned made this hotel an excellent choice.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

I stayed at this hotel for four nights, and my review is based on my daily experiences.

This hotel is very close to John Wayne airport with quick and easy access to I-405, CA 73, and the Costa Mesa Freeway. It is also within a 30 minute drive to Huntington Beach.

STAFF MEMBERS:
Every staff member that I personally interacted with was professional and polite. I felt very welcomed and do not have any negative comments whatsoever on the staff!

HOTEL ROOM:
My room (a 1 bedroom studio with living room and kitchen) was pleasant and met all of the needs I had on this trip. The bedroom was clean, as was the bathroom, and the kitchen. However, the living room had several red candy pieces on the floor by the couch and under the table. Additionally, the stove in the kitchen only had one burner in operation, which made cooking a little difficult with only one burner left.

The bed was comfortable and had plenty of pillows and bedding. The air conditioning worked perfectly and was very welcomed! The shower had good pressure and plenty of hot water. The room was very well lit and had lots of available lighting as well. Most of my stay was calm and quiet and I rarely heard noise from other guests.

SUMMARY:
If you are looking for a nice hotel in a good and convenient area this is a great choice, especially for travelers coming in to John Wayne Airport. I would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: I was on the third floor in a corner and it was very quiet! If you are a light sleeper, you might wa...

The rooms are spacious and up-to-date; I had a room on the highest floor. The staff is very friendly and the breakfast buffet was also okay. The internet access strength was good and reliable. Definitive a great hotel to stay for Business travel in this area.

This hotel is one of the larger Residence Inns I've been to. This was our 2nd stay at hotel with family (once in 2012 New Years Eve and in April 2013). Clean rooms well kept in between our visits. The breakfast options are somewhat more catered to area (note: rice, seaweed, and miso soup mix available to cater to Asian businesses/travelers in this Orange County area).

Across parking lot is Soup Plantation and Boudin's. A short drive south (3 long blocks down) is small shopping center with Ralphs grocery store. Just north or northeast to Jamboree is a 10 minute drive to mall or the Irvine District (shopping/dining, Target,etc).

This hotel has become a favorite of my family. I live in Los Angeles county but I travel so much that I can use points on hotels & this location is our local pick!!!

Cons: beds aren't the softest,but they aren't advertising or known for "heavenly beds" either.

Room Tip: Higher floors are nice if you get a room that isn't next to next door high rise apartments. It...

We stayed at the Residence Inn for a recent visit to OC. Very convenient to several restaurants including Souplantation right in front of the hotel. The rooms were very clean and updated, breakfast was pretty good for free. There is an apartment complex next door but we heard no noise and there was minimal traffic in the shared parking lot. Would stay there again.
