Honestly I didn't have a great feeling when I learned that my client booked me into a HIE, my previous stay at a Holiday Inn Express, left little to be desired. Upon arriving at the hotel I was created by one of the nicest front desk clerks in the industry. The clerk was so kind that when I walked in the musty smelling room I was very forgiving, and decided to give the air conditioner a chance, which works fine btw, but it is one of the floor units so it takes a wee bit longer to cool off the room but it works! I am staying in a room with a single king size bed, the room is a decent size, and bathroom like in so many hotels these days is small but the water pressure was excellent and there was plenty of hot water, a must for a tired traveler. The king size bed was perfect, I can honestly say that the comfort of the bed makes one very forgiving. As everyone who travels knows, a comfortable bed can make all the difference in the world. There is no restaurant in the hotel, but you can find a variety of them down the street. For the traveler tired of eating out there is a grocery store down the street, the room has a microwave/refrigerator. The hotel is only 6 minutes from the John Wayne Airport which is a major plus in my books (rumor has it they have a shuttle to the airport). I can't review the free breakfast, since I had to leave the hotel early for the conference, the only item offered was a bowl of small muffins which didn't look overly appealing. I would have loved to have had a gooey cinnamon roll as noted on their site. I doubt I would stay here again it is not a pet friendly hotel. Except for business the only reason I normally travel to the Huntington Beach area would be to visit the local dog beach with my pups.
