We stayed here Saturday night, last minute booking on Hotwire. Wanted to enjoy the 80 degrees in Newport Beach and Laguna. Nice, well appointed room. Nice view of small lake. Rate is half of other hotels in area. Drawback:, $11.00 parking, a minor nuisance, as room was under $60.00 for a weekend. Great value, friendly front desk and valet service. Would recommend if you don't mind driving a few miles to beach, South Coast Plaza.
