Best Hotel to stay in Orange County / Costa Mesa Area, price, location is very good. You have a Hooters restaurant just beside the Hotel that helps if yo want to have lunch or dinner fast. Just beside the Highway so you gan get anywhere also very fast.

Needs to be torn down and rebuilt. The walkways are in need of a powerwash....walking up to the room they are stained and filthy. Rooms are not much better. Old nasty paint, dirty walls. Rooms smell. They do have smoking rooms here and whoever is smoking must be close as the smoke comes in your room, which already smelled stale... More

I stay at La Quinta's frequently and found it a safe choice. Just checked in a three night reservation. I was lucky to have a room at the back of the hotel away from the freeway. The photos do not show the true state of the rooms. Carpets appear not to have been cleaned in years, walls need cleaning, desk... More

The place is clean but there is a lot of rust, fractures in the walls, old windows, cracks in the tubs and oxidation on the showerheads. The carpets are in need of cleaning however you can tell they are maintained to the best of their ability. Staff is courteous and location is just off the freeway with dining next door... More

The hotel room, check in and out were fine. The noise from the Freeway was bad. Location was very good and it was nice to have a Hooters next door for dinner. I will book a room on the other side of property to get away from the freeway noise.

The room was DISGUSTING! I checked in at 11 PM intending to stay for 5 nights, but packed the car at 5 AM the next morning and checked out to find another hotel! One bed had hair on the pillow, stains on the sheets, and a twig!

In my opinion the only thing your paying for is the fact you are a 15 minute drive from the beach, other then that everything else was poor, the pictures for this location do not show justice its MUCH worse. yuck

I enjoy staying at this hotel. its in a good neighborhood with lots of food places and Target right by it. Not an expensive hotel. You get what you pay for. It doesn't have fancy upgrades, but the staff is nice and the rooms are clean. I would definitely stay there again.
