While I wasn't expecting five star accommodations this was still a disappointing experience. I arrived at 3pm which is the listed check in time and was told that they didn't have any clean rooms available. The wait time would be 30 minutes which wouldn't work for me as I had to get ready for an event I was attending that... More

I stay at this location for the price and it's our company hotel. Outside of Rick, the hotel staff are horrible. Although getting better lately. Coming from Marriot I expected more based off of other people's feedback regarding Hampton Inns.

Our stay at Hampton Inn, Lake Forest, CA was very enjoyable. It was reasonably priced and provided a hot complimentary breakfast each morning with freshly baked chocolate chip cookies and fresh fruit each night in the lobby. The room was clean and the staff was extremely helpful. We would recommend this hotel to others.

I would stay here again without hesitation. It was centrally located for the purpose of my trip. The food was standard Hampton Inn fare, which is to say a decent variety and all one can eat. The staff was helpful, and the room and bathroom were very clean

Every time I come to Orange County I stay here. I have many choices as a business traveler. I like that when I arrive I am greeted by friendly staff as well as a cookie and flavored water. My room is clean and the beds are comfortable. In the morning the breakfast is good and the staff is terrific. Overall... More
