“Best Hotel in the Area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2012

I have worked with the Staybridge Suites Irvine/Lake Forest for a couple of years now. Friendly staff, great rooms, meeting rooms available. Love the BBQ area & pool.
When working on Group travel and meetings the Managers Gloria & Cleo are the most helpful I have found so far. Always ready to assist when needed and eager to make our business trip painless. I strongly recommend this Hotel if you are staying in this area. HOT & FREE breakfast buffet is a plus (you do not get that from other local hotels in Lake Forest). They also have a mini van that can take you and pick you up from a couple of miles around the hotel, so in case you have no rental car or are sharing one... they can take you to local restaurants, grocery store, bank, movie theaters, etc.

Staff was super friendly and on top of everything! Breakfast & week night meals we're fresh and accomidating. Hotel, its grounds & rooms we're clean and well equipped.
The only downfall was the bed we had (room #234) was very hard; painful for those above 40...haha. We had to place the comforter under the sheets/mattress cover for extra cushion and it actually worked great for nights 3 & 4.
Last Staybridge we stayed at in Vancouver, WA., the beds we're worthy of purchase in our own home.
I truly hope they view this as a possible improvement and not considered "just another complainer". There was absolutely nothing else I would improve...meals we're far better here than the Vancouver stay if that helps with healing :)

i stayed in staybridge for over 3 weeks. The rooms are pretty standard. The complimentary breakfast and dinner are manageable. Maple syrup is too watery and hash browns need not be really brown. But whats makes the place apart is the excellent service and additional perks.Be it the complimentary pick-up/drop ( anytime till 5, everyday) or the courteous behaviour of the staff or the proximity to the towncentre it scores higher than any other hotel. highly recommended for longer stays.

Room Tip: the ground floor can be noisy in the evenings ( basketball & swimming) . other wise most rooms a...

I have stayed here a number of times usually in a two bedroom suite. Very comfortable, clean and friendly. Full breakfasts are great and the evening social hours are very good, you can make a dinner of it. One of the best values around in the area. Will keep coming back.

STAY: 4nights/3days (first time)

EVENT: Couple weekend get-away

ROOM: Just as advertised, clean and you have what you need for the kitchen, bathroom and bedroom

PLUS:
1. Free breakfast (you really have a variety to choose from, the meat varies daily, the servers are always checking for anything that need more, also i like having "real" plates, glass and utensils available)
2. I was worried about cooking or heating up food because of the smell but suprisingly the vent did realllllly work.
3. The place was NOT noisy nor unsafe, close to places that we planned on visiting.
4. Staff was friendly and helpful. ( We called to have the top floor and end-of-hallway room and that what we got)


WILL I GO BACK: Yes

My family just finished a two night stay in this hotel and we had an outstanding experience.

The staff was especially friendly and helpful, going out of their way to make sure we were treated well. I was pleasantly surprised by the excellent service at all levels, from the front desk to housekeeping, but Mimi was especially helpful to us. We enjoyed the breakfast and the evening reception very much. We liked the food and were impressed with the variety of choices we were offered.

The room accommodations were perfect for our family—we especially appreciated being able to have a separate bedroom so that the kids could go to sleep while we stayed up and watched a movie (NOTE: We had the one bedroom suite, not just the basic studio suite. The basic suite does not have a separate room.) The DVD player was a nice touch since our daughter could watch her usual videos. Having the kitchen area made preparing a picnic lunch easy and we found all the items we needed. My wife appreciated being able to wash some of the kids clothes before we left so that she didn’t have as much dirty laundry to take home. Of course, my daughter loved the pool area but we thought the basketball court and the landscaping in the courtyard all made for a beautiful area to relax.

We would highly recommend it to anyone!

Room Tip: One bedroom suites have separate bedrooms; studio suites are all in one large room. It's nice t...
