4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This is a nice hotel, good location, excellent service. Clean, spacious, and good value. I don't always take advantage of the breakfast but when I do, it's always good. They don't charge for parking. I grew up in the area ad have families in the area but still prefer to stay here when I visit.

Friendly staff. Comfortable beds. Easy & delicious hot breakfast. I'll definitely stay here again. One of the best nights sleep I've had in a hotel in years. It was about a 15 minute easy drive from the airport. Check in took about 10 minutes.

My husband frequently stays here for his business trips to nearby Research Drive, and the one thing that is frustrating about this hotel is that his phone calls to me will drop quite frequently. However, since we were there together, we could overlook that detail and stay in this nice property. We were disappointed that some of the old-world charm... More

The rooms are large,clean , beds comfy and quiet. The breakfast is one of the best especially for this price range. There is a cook who will even make you an... More

I would have been very happy with this hotel, but for the front desk staff. After a grueling week involving the hospital stay of a family member, we were told that the rates were increasing. In fact, they were doubled because of 'the season'. We made plans to move to another hotel, then heard the front desk staff quote a... More

The room was very spacious - one of the benefits of being in the country vs city. The fitness facilities were among the best I've ever seen at a hotel, and the pool was nice and big. We were pleasantly surprised by the breakfast: eggs and sausage or bacon, waffles, fresh fruit. And all this was included in the room... More

Just checked out of this hotel. Excellent overall experience. The free breakfast is much better than you standard Hampton Inn or Fairfield Inn. As always its a little hectic at breakfast but overall a great value and the staff was great and aimed to please. The rooms are a very nice size much bigger than the national chain hotels. Very...

I was so happy with what I got for what I paid. They match prices found online, and it's a nice hotel in a nice location. The mattress was so comfortable, the room was clean, the breakfast was awesome, the staff was friendly, and there was a microwave and mini-fridge in the room. There was a pool and a hot... More

Relaxing hotel conveniently close to family in Laguna Woods. Comfortable rooms. Attentive maid service. Charming courtyard with a Mediterranean feel. Paintings on the walls, Cookies at the front desk in the evenings. Complimentary breakfast service with great variety and with a cook who can take your orders.
