“Here for just one night, but would happily have spent more.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

We had a one night stay here on our way home from Los Angeles and it was a very pleasant surprise. It is more like a studio apartment than a motel room. Nice bathroom, wonderful bed and an amazing little kitchen, complete with dishwasher. There was even a work station with wireless and wired internet access. If we are ever going to be in Capistrano for a few days, I will certainly return here.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

I stayed here with my GF the night of a recent concert. The hotel is the closest to this venue, so it's nice to stay at because you can cab it or even walk (it's about a half mile).

The front desk were very friendly. The place is called "residence inn" for a reason; the rooms are large and have a bed, a couch, and a little kitchen area with stove, sink and fridge. The rooms were really great. If you're on the east side, you can hear some noise from the cars on the street (it's a pretty big street). And you can also hear the train blare it's horn at night, but it wasn't all that loud and didn't keep me up (although I had had a few drinks...)

Last thing about the location, there isn't really a view of any kind so keep that in mind. The Costco parking lot is what you see out the back of the hotel.

They have breakfast in the morning and it was tasty.

You can't walk to the beach from here. Well I guess you could, but it would be a hike. I didn't visit the pool, but it looked nice from what I saw.

Room Tip: try to get one on the west side, away from the street, not really a big deal, but you at least won...

The room was very nicely appointed ... very luxurious with granite counter tops.

I had a fabulous 2 day stay, no issues whatsoever.

I did read about the noise from the metrolink, which concerned me, however, I never heard it and usually I will hear everything. I was staying in the front of the hotel; perhaps that is the quiet location.

Room Tip: I stayed in the front of the hotel and never heard the metrolink.

We booked here after having such a good experience in La Jolla, what a lovely place!
The rooms are big with a kitchen and seating area and very clean and tidy. The hotel was centred perfectly for the stuff we wanted to do in the area. It is also located by a busy road, but that didn't bother us at all.
We found the hotel nice and quiet, I'm sure you will n joy your sty as well!

My extended family and I stayed for several days and the 2 bedroom suite with 2 full bathrooms were just perfect - at a very reasonable price. There was ample living room space too so that everyone was comfy and had plenty of room. The beds were very comfortable and the rooms and baths VERY clean. The staff was very friendly, and the complimentary breakfast was a great addition. The food and selections were way above what I would expect for a free meal, with the hot selections (4 each day) were a pleasant surprise. It is close to the freeway and train, but did not interfere with the enjoyment. Very conveniently located. There is a jogging trail within a short distance, but not walking distance to the nearby amenities. I would highly recommend this property and would definitely stay there again.

My family stayed at this hotel the week before Christmas. The rooms are very clean and spacious. We had two little ones in the king studio room and it was not crowded at all. The beds are very comfortable, even the fold out one!

The hotel staff are extremely nice and personable. The staff member in the morning was always helpful and gave us tips on getting good prices for Disneyland tickets.

When going back to Orange County, I would definitely stay here again.

My wife, 5 year old daughter, 2 dogs were had to leave our house and "live" in this hotel for 5 nights last week and it was outstanding. The rooms are spacious and the amenities in the room are great. The breakfast provided is outstanding- eggs, various meats, cereals, etc. The property is great for dogs- bags and trash cans and lots of grass. There is a nice pantry in the lobby as well. The fitness center is outstanding as is the laundry facility. Staff was friendly and attentive as well. Keep up the great work!
