A very nice place to stay for whatever purpose. Clean, friendly staff, good breakfast, centrally located in Orange County, and there is a Hooters restaurant close by. The area is very quiet and the beds are very comfortable. Swimming pool on site, dog friendly.

Rooms facing freeway are very noisy and noise policy after 10PM. People in all rooms surrounding us were up talking and laughing all night. Walls very thin. Parking sucks on weekends as hotel is next to Hooters and Hooters customers are not prohibited from using hotel parking spaces. We had to park at far end of Hooters lot on Saturday... More

I wasn't really comfortable at this motel. I was forced to park quite a distance from my room. There was only one elevator I could use, which was also quite a distance from my room. The walkways were not clean. The balcony I had to walk on to get to my room was right next to the very busy San... More

I always stay at La Quinta because I travel with a pet. If I would have known how close to the I-405 San Diego Fwy this hotel was, I wouldn't have stayed there. If you stay here, don't stay on the side of the hotel facing the fwy. Fwy noise all night long. Got about 2 hrs of sleep.

I have been staying at this hotel for over 8 years every time I go to So California. This was my worst experience to date. The shower had too much mold growing in it to have been deep cleaned anytime recently. The toilet leaked and when we advised the front desk, no one did anything to fix it. Breakfast was... More

Conveniently located right off the express. But on that note it was a little noisy. Just a little disappointed there were no restaurants close by other than Hooters (really not a fan of that). Also, missed having a fridge in the room.

Difficult checkin & reservation experience that lead to no reservation at all for 2 of 10+ dates I chose on two separate stays at different properties. For a seasoned business traveler and staff that is a pain I would avoid just pay the extra $20-50 and stay at a big box chain. The last stay was bad enough hygiene or... More

Room was clean and the bed and pillows were very comfortable. The staff was really friendly and very accommodating. John Wayne/Santa Ana airport is less than 10 minutes away. It could use some updating, but I would stay here again.

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.
