Staff at the hotel were extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms were nice, comfortable, and most importantly clean. The hotel was located in a good area for our traveling purposes--OC Fair and Expo center and dinner. Breakfast was also good.

The rooms are clean and comfortable and house a refrigerator, microwave, and Keurig machine. The location is a bit funky but there are plenty of places to shop and eat nearby. Underground parking is free and easily accessible. For our needs,... More
