“Comfy low-rise hotel near the Coast!”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

Very nice property with just two stories. Located in a quiet neighborhood a short drive from Newport Beach/Balboa in SoCal. The morning fog breaks early here and there's a pool on the property to relax beside during the warm afternoons. Good access to the beaches (Newport or Laguna) or Disneyland. A good choice if flying into Orange County Airport or doing business in nearby Irvine Tech Zone/Univ. of Calif Irvine.

Room Tip: No views from the second floor rooms (low-rise residential neighborhood surrounds the complex) so ta...

Stayed in this hotel for a conference and absolutely loved it. Location is easy to get in and out of and a lot of help from the front desk to find stuff. The breakfast is nice, the courtyard is quiet. It is close to some amazing shopping and not far from the beach. I will definitely stay here again

We stayed here while dealing with local elderly parent issues. Not a fun trip, but this hotel really helped us stay upbeat. The facility is not brand new, but very comfortable, well laid out, and has everything we needed including washing machines/dryers, great breakfasts, newspapers, full kitchen, wine by the bottle, happy hour, etc. etc. Our room was crisp and clean. Sue, the Manager made us feel like old friends and glad to see us. We will undoubtedly need to return to Costa Mesa, and we will certainly stay here and maybe even get to take a dip in the nice pool!

Room Tip: If you have lot of luggage, the stairs to the second floor may be difficult.

This was the best hotel i have ever stayed in! the staff was amazing!! They were so friendly i really felt like i was with family. The bed was AMAZING!! I am going to buy the Sterns and Foster for my next bed!! Breakfast was good and i was amazed they had dinner too! The Inn is only a 20 min walk to the mall and has a plaza with a restaurant right next door. I will stay here anytime.

I spent three plus months at this location, the food was typically very good, actually the best of any Marriott Residence Inn I have stayed at, with the exception of the evening fare at the Pensacola FL location. The staff is wonderful and very helpful. The Manager (Sue) runs a good crew. Good breakfast, great variety.

Room Tip: They are all good rooms, I prefer the first floor.

We were only there for one night, but were very pleased with the accommodations. We booked one of the 2-bedroom suites and it was like staying in an apartment. The full kitchen was modern and very functional and it was great to have a little living room with a fireplace! We found the beds to be really comfortable as well. We had friends that stayed in the smaller rooms and they too raved about the accommodations. There is a full breakfast served in the main lobby and it included something for everyone. Check-out is not until noon, which suited us just fine :)

This place was excellent for our family get together (their was 20 of us). It was close to Disneyland, to the beach, shopping and easy access to the freeways. Yes it is close to the highway and it is noisy but I found that it was not that bad.

We had two penthouse suites and they accommodated us nicely. Other family members had books studio suites for the weekend. Altogether we had booked 5 rooms. All the rooms where clean and up to date with appliances.

The breakfast was always fresh and hot and the ladies who took care of the breakfast were extremely helpful and nice.

All the staff at the hotel where helpful.
