“Please fix the elevators.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2011

I Customer service amazing!! Drawbacks: Elevator not working. I am curious but are all the sofa sleeper beds uncomfortable with springs protruding? Can anyone else please let me know your experience with the comfort of the sofa bed. My poor foreign exchange students used this bed and I felt really bad. We gave them our comforter to help with padding. Any comments appreciated. And which room is the best at this place. They are not all the same.

This hotel was in a good location. 5 minutes away from the John Wayne Airport, right next to the CA55, close to many shopping centers. The front desk was friendly and we always had great service when we requested towels, bedding, soaps, etc. Housekeeping did a great job keeping the rooms clean also. Oh, here's a tip about the elevators there. Use the 3 elevators at the back of the hotel. They run much faster than the two in the front.

Parking is free!

The room was like a typical Embassy Suites but the bathroom was small. It was a good thing that we had a bar in the room so that we could make use of the sink there. The rooms seem to have a musty smell. We do like staying at Embassy Suites because of the large suite. It's nice to have more living space. The pullout sofabed is not very comfortable, very thin mattress and does not have much back support. The complimentary breakfast is always a plus but this particular weekend was so busy that it seemed that the food kept running out and they couldn't replenish what they had fast enough. The kids enjoyed the pool and the jacuzzi though. Overall, it was just okay. I think this was our 4th Embassy Suites in California and I would only return here due to its location.

We had a corner room which put everything on the diagonal and was kind of cool. Very comfortable beds (as usual) and a plethora of pillows. They even sent up a few more since there were 3 of us, and very quickly at that. Can't beat the breakfast of course.

This hotel is very well located for all of your Orange County adventures. We stayed here and drove to Balboa Beach each morning. It was a short drive with some traffic. Little more on the way back, but it was so worth it when we got back in time to enjoy the compliementary happy hour! Drinks, wine, nachos, pretzels and other snacks made for a nice little snack before dinner. We didn't feel like going out to dinner and went across the street to a Subway for take out each night. Very easy.

The rooms are very nice and well kept up. Our suite had two double beds and a pull-out sofa in the living room area. Lots of room for a family! Also, these are some of the most comfortable beds I've slept in! Having the frig in the room was especially nice. The room was truly a suite with a door between the living room and the bedroom. The living room door opened out in to the atrium of the hotel which has a nice lush feel. The bedroom area had a slider, which was nice to open and get a little fresh air.

My kids also enjoyed the pool, which was indoor. The gym was right off the pool and while I didn't use it, it appeared to have gym quality equipment.

The compliementary breakfast every morning was fantastic! Made to order omelettes! So good. Plus, fresh fruit, cereal, pancakes, bacon, eggs, sausage, muffins, toast and juice. Definitely a value for the dollar and worth going back to.

We went for the 4th of July weekend. Hotel is huge and pretty with waterfalls and ponds with Koi fish and turtles in it. Happy hour daily with free snacks and beer or wine. Not the best selection but hey it's free. Also moring cooked breakfast buffet not continital. It was pretty good also. The rooms are all suites so they have living room area wet bar and the bedroom. Bed was nice and comfortable. It was sorta like a little apartment. Just stayed one night would stay again if in the area. Didn't use the gym or pool but both were inside the gum has glass walls looking into the pool area.

Attended a conference in one of the lobby meeting rooms. Both the public restroom in the lobby restaurant and the public restroom by the conference rooms looked and smelled as though they had not been cleaned in days. The stench is nauseating. I reported it to the front desk and went back later in the day and they still have not been cleaned. This place is a total dump. Thankfully, I'm not staying here.
