There was foot traffic at all hours, someone talking on their phone outside my room and someone else knocking on a neighbors door at 3:30 am, over and over. The...

This hotel is a nightmare! It's dirty, dirty, dirty! The room smelled like 30 day old smoke and musk. The carpet was very stained ,felt hard with dirt, and definitely unworthy of walking on WITH slippers. Very noisy, and the phone wires were cut in this room. did call the front desk on my cell to inform them. They did...

Value-priced, but clean and satisfactory. Nice buffet breakfast, and plenty of lawn for dog-walking. Staff was efficient and friendly. Computer in lobby near front door. Location was driving-close to nearby stores and businesses.

The major plus to this hotel is price for value while being centrally located. It is a straight 3 to 5 minute drive to South Coast Plaza.... a...
