The hotel is located a few km from the John Wayne Airport and has easy access to the 405 Freeway. It is not a few km from the campus of UC Irvine. This hotel was not up to the same standards as the other hotels of the Courtyard Marriott group. The response on check-in was a bit perfunctory. The most negative aspect of the stay was that the room walls were paper thin - and the rooms did not appear to be acoustically isolated from one another - rather disconcerting and unpleasant to say the least. The "so-called" Main Street is actually a six-lane speedway. There are only a few restaurants within walking distance. If you visit this hotel without a car, you will be stranded as there are few services/stores within easy walking distance. In summary, this Courtyard/Marriott is an OK but it is an uninspiring place to stay.
