The Holiday Inn Express Costa Mesa is one of those great hidden gems you come across by accident. The hotel is recently renovated and the rooms and property are clean and fresh. The rooms are of a good size and include microwave and refrig. The rooms were quiet as the hotel is next to a residential area. Parking may be...

Honestly I didn't have a great feeling when I learned that my client booked me into a HIE, my previous stay at a Holiday Inn Express, left little to be desired. Upon arriving at the hotel I was created by one of the nicest front desk clerks in the industry. The clerk was so kind that when I walked in...

I love the holiday express inns as we don't stay in hotels for the breakfast, but this one is one of our favourites due to the great location. Close to a Starbucks and Newport Beach. The smell is only in the elevators and due to a natural spring. Great rooms and good wifi. Will definitely go back, this was our...

Nice hotel with all the most current Holiday Inn Express features. The carpeting in the hallway are brand new and different than anything I have ever seen in a HI Express. The rooms are all spotless and the beds are comfortable. In the room having the Directv is a great bonus. Had about 120 channels to choose from which put...

Stayed here with a group attending a conference nearby. The rooms were clean, beds comfortable, and the breakfast choices were pretty nice: pre-made egg & cheese omelets, yogurt, cereal, oatmeal, pastries, muffins, and make your own waffles. Just off the 55 freeway south and close to the John Wayne Airport.

Nice hotel, typical for the brand. Slightly older structure; but fresh interior/lobby; etc. Staff was courteous, though I had limited contact with them. Stayed for business. My room was on 2nd floor, located to the rear of the building. Access was very easy and it was very quiet. Everything was clean/functional, etc. No issues at all.

I booked this room on business because it was close to John Wayne Airport and not a bad drive to the company I was visiting. The room was great, the bed comfortable and the staff very friendly and courteous. However when I checked out I noticed that I was charged $50 a night more for my 2nd, 3rd and 4th...

I stay in Costa Mesa often for business as it is close to John Wayne Airport (7 minutes). Also close to Newport Beach for nice dinner options in evening. I've gone back and forth between Holiday Inn Express and Best Western. Best Western has been consistently better, but always like the IHG points. But again this place fell short of...

Well located just seconds off the 55 Freeway. Underground car park. Room was clean and functional. Beds fine. Breakfast was basic - I have had much better in similar budget hotels. There is some road noise but it's not too intrusive. Probably just about worth the money we paid - $115 a night for two of us.
