Hotel was nice and clean. Jesus the desk clerk was exceptional, friendly, cordial and very helpful. Room was big enough for sure. Breakfast had a lot of different things, so was great. Only negative was the room above had a little kid or two running back and forth. We'd go again, but ask for a 3rd floor room.

H I Express has become our favorite hotel chain because we always (including this trip) receive those amenities we've learned to expect. This, even though the whole first floor was under going renovation and a pipe broke, causing the water to be shut off.

This hotel is clean, comfortable, good beds and accommodating staff. Breakfast was delicious, with a variety of choices.

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.
