“Great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

Nothing fancy but nevertheless great.
We have stayed here many times and the rooms are clean, Free Breakfast is good, hotel employees are extra friendly and very accommodating let you check in when you get there even if its before 12 noon. Near shopping center and restaurants.
Free Internet. Cool and within good price range.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

We stayed at this hotel as we wanted a base for exploring South of LA and we weren't disappointed. We were allowed to check in at 12 so were able to take the opportunity to use the pool and hot tub for the afternoon which was deserted but well maintained.
The room was large, clean and comfortable with good wifi and cable tv. It is located about 20 minutes drive from Laguna beach which made it a more affordable option but easy to access with a car. We also explored nearby Huntington Beach and Newport Beach while we were there. Breakfast was excellent in a very comfortable room off reception with lots of choice and plenty of tables. The Irvine Spectrum Centre is very close by with plenty of big name stores for shopping and also a cinema and a number of eateries. We ate at the nearby Woodies Diner which was excellent and worth a visit. A tip if you are visiting Laguna Beach, parking is very limited and expensive with parking meters in most streets, there is however a free car park 10 minutes walk from the centre on Canyon Road which saved us some dollars.
Overall very comfortable stay in great location just off freeway.

Very comfortable! We stayed there for a concert we were attending at the Verizon Amptheater and I was very impressed with the comfort and cleanliness. The decor was modern. The staff extremely helpful. I asked for a local cab company and they arranged a shuttle style service that was very cost effective, and comfortable - they had arranged it even prior to me calling the company! The service knew who I was when I called, very personable service both the shuttle and the front desk! The shuttle service was waiting for us when the concert ended, very enjoyable experience! The king size bed was so very comfortable! Really enjoyed staying here. We missed the breakfast that ended at 9am because we were so cozy sleeping. The only recommendation I would make is to avoid any rooms near the ice maker machine. It seemed like folks were getting ice at all hours of the night and morning and although we were on the floor above, it was loud and annoying, but not enough for me to complain or ruin an otherwise very enjoyable experience.

The Comfort Inn of Laguna Hills, CA was a great value for what my wife and I needed it for. We went to a concert at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in Irvine which was approximately 1 mile away in order to network with certain people for a business venture. The hotel is in a great location central to restaurants, and the venue we were going to in the evening. The staff was friendly and seemed eager to make our stay pleasant. The rooms were an 8 out of 10 in cleanliness and the beds were very comfortable. The pool and hot tub were also well maintained, clean, and at a comfortable temperature. Its close proximity to the freeway was very convenient and didn't impede on the relaxing atmosphere by the pool. The furniture by the pool is that of the cheap plastic home depot type furniture but it did its job well and was clean. I really have no complaints as their wasn't much that was below standard at this hotel. Though it didn't exceed my expectations it completely met them which is kind of rare these days it would seem. The price point is slightly higher then I would have liked but I don't feel bad about it since everything went well, I got a good night sleep, and my wife and I had a good time. Overall I would recommend this hotel for anyone looking for a clean, basic, comfortable room to sleep in while conducting business or pleasureful activities in the area for a short time.

Room Tip: I always request non smoking, but most rooms are pretty much the same besides bed configurations.

I told yall I would write yall a review so here it goes. Despite my vacation turning into a nightmare with personal issues, yall sure saved it and made it a vacation. Donnie I think his name is made sure we had everything and was very very kind. Also the woman with the short black hair was a sweet heart. I do not want to leave out anyone so all the staff was very professional and very curtious. I can not thank yall enough for the great and wonderful hospitality. The room(s) I stayed in were very clean and neat. The breakfast was by far the best breakfast I have had at a hotel in forever. So I just want to say thank you for all your help and hospitality. This Illinois boy wishes he could have stayed longer on better terms but now this boy made it home and is really looking forward to the next stay at Comfort Inn in Laguna!

Room Tip: Any room is heaven there is pretty sweet.

I stayed at this Comfort Inn for 4 months. The staff was excellent and very nice. The rooms were clean. It is in a quiet location and easily accessible to the major freeways and the beaches. I only had to drive a few miles for shopping, grocery stores and restraurants. Some restraurants were even walking distance. I enjoyed my longterm stay. Much appreciation and thanks to the great staff for making my stay pleasant and nice.

Room Tip: I stayed in the rooms on the third floor away from the swimming pool area.

The hotel staff was friendly but the property is old and showing its age. We stayed there because we were looking for something affordable- but the few dollars we saved wasn't worth it. While the rooms were clean- the overall condition of the hotel needs improvement.
