“Don't expect to be pampered.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

I needed to stay in Orange County to get work done at a corporate facility for a couple of weeks and this is exactly the type of place I was looking for. To stay on Eastern Standard Time I just wanted to leave the hotel at 6 am, get my work done, return at 6 pm, cook a quick dinner and get to bed by 8. I didn't want to listen to kids splashing in a pool or karaoke singers in a hotel bar. One reviewer said "people who were staying here were the type of people that you don't want to be around". If you don't want to rub shoulders with working people who god-forbid might be wearing worker's uniforms and driving company vans then this is not your kind of place.

I found the front desk staff very friendly and ready to hand out extra cooking utensils or towels if needed, but there is no concierge. The room was clean when I arrived but you only get weekly room cleaning service. The price was right.

Room Tip: My non-smoking room on the third floor did not smell of cigarette smoke and I kept the windows open...

If you want a no smoking room, make sure you get a room on the 1st or 2nd floor. The entire 4th floor is smoking and I had a room on the third floor which smelled like an ash tray when I checked in. Totally disgusting. They said the smoke probably was wafting down from the top floor. Also, I got a handicapped room (which I didn't need) and the fold up seat in the shower had mold all over it. Gross. In addition, the refrigerator in my room did not work (they did fix it the next day) and the pots, pans, etc. were not in the room (you have to call the front desk and request them - ridiculous. Also the walls are thin and the people next to me would not shut the f^&k up! The only reason I am not giving it a 1 is because Sergio at the front desk was fantastic and went out of his way to do everything he could.

Room Tip: 1st floor only if you don't like cigarette smoke

The overall experience was poor. Please see the following: fish smell in the hallway, fire alarm went off a couple time, staff were not helpful, people who were staying here were the type of people that you don't want to be around.

Room Tip: Check out the residence Inn about 2 miles away.

Booked last minute... was not sure about the hotel... arrived late, but for the value it was just great!

I was able to get to my meeting at Newport Beach in just 5 minutes. Location is un-disputable... However, if you need service... do not expect any. What you pay is what you get. It is geared for a longer stay travelers or... whatever. Personally, it had a small kitchen - refrigerator, etc. were perfect. I had only 7 hours stay... including sleep time. Just left the next early morning - served coffee, choice of granola bars, muffin or... was great for my purpose. But do make sure to ask - if you want non-smoking room upon making reservation...

Room Tip: Ask for Non-smoking at time of reservation!!! Do not assume it is as I realized for the first time...

Needed a place for just one night and chose this because of the proximity to the airport. And that is the only good thing about this hotel. Sheets were not clean and room was less than perfect. As it was only a night's stay, did not even bother to report.

Stayed here for five nights. They put us in a smoking room even though we requested non smoking. The entire floor (4th) smelled so bad from smoke that you had to hold your breath. Dogs were barking and the odors were bad. Windows to the outside were hard to open and badly needed cleaning. There is no maid service which we knew but is still a pain. The staff were very pleasant and the location is close to the airport. I would not recommend this place if you can afford anything else.

Room Tip: The whole place smells of smoke
