This Courtyard is very similar to the Riverside UCR hotel. Nice lobby, nice rooms, a grill instead of the free continental breakfast that serves breakfast and lunch along with alcohol. Good location for business visitors in the Foothill Ranch area with excellent access to the 241 Toll Road.

This hotel was perfect. It was down the street from numerous restaurant although the Denny's was terrible, the Bistro would have been much better....don't know what I was thinking when I chose the later. The room was very clean, lobby was excellent and the area was perfect. Not too far from OC's attractions and within a quick jump to the... More

Super clean and spacious room, super comfy bed, great hot shower with good water pressure. Above average friendly staff and delicious coffee and breakfast. The hotel and staff were so kind and accommodating to our motorcycle crew. We enjoyed it so much we stayed an extra night!

I found this property great. First off, it is newer, clean, quiet and a friendly staff. The location was good for a business trip for me, but the bonus was a trail system just a block from the front door. The trails are wide, well cared for, quiet and challenging. I was on them as soon as the sun arose... More

Not knowing the area, I found it on a whim. Since Rancho Santa Margarita is a more high-end housing area, I drove for more than a few miles around the church where I was to attend a memorial service looking for a place to stay.

Bed was super comfy and the balcony was worth it to enjoy my morning coffee. The couch was also comfy and cute. Staff was extremely friendly and the room was clean and with great lighting to get ready. It also was nearby to everything which is great.

Cradled by the Saddleback Mountains, the Courtyard Foothill Ranch Irvine East Hotel is an oasis in South Orange County. We're perfectly situated between Lake Forest and Rancho Santa Margarita.

Back at our hotel, experience our high-tech lobby featuring The Bistro, which serves Starbucks coffee, where you can sit and enjoy a full meal and cocktails in the evening, or grab an appetizer or something light to go. Stay connected with free Wi-Fi and our interactive GoBoard(R) technology, providing relevant, up-to-date news, weather and local information.
