It was easy to get there from John Wayne(OC) Airport, especially making use of the complimentary shuttle. I have even visited before from LAX - self-drive, and the hotel is situated centrally in the heart of OC. It has a welcoming exterior, simple, in keeping with Travelodge, but cared for and tended.
I was greeted in the lobby with pleasant efficiency and nothing was too much trouble. This would probably be the perfect hub for business trips too. But I was on holiday. Walking passed the pools to my room, the water looked clean and inviting.

My room was ambient; someone had designed it 'home-from-home', it seemed just for me, and the message read that if anything was lacking they would do their utmost to rectify it. I found nothing however was lacking: It was perfectly comfortable (dare I say upmarket for a Travelodge) - I was quite taken aback by the thoughtful attention to detail and amenities, and I felt safe.
The breakfast was simple and well considered. Not just a pile of donuts, but fresh juice and fruit, coffee, cereals and breads and English muffins to toast.
At night I could walk a few yards to a choice of lively local eateries, or take a short drive to the bustling bars and bistros on Newport Coast.
The hotel is convenient for the classy shopping malls, (Spectrum, Fashion Island and South Coast Plaza) and a couple of trendy, funky 'anti-malls' are really close by...worth a look!

There are beautiful Soca golf courses - one backing onto the hotel, - and all manner of visitor attractions locally, including Disneyland and Universal. I had easy access to the freeways, South to San Diego, East to the Coacella Valley Desert, North to downtown LA, or a short hop West to the glorious coastal villages which cater for chic and surf alike!

Now don't get me wrong, - we are not looking at the elite, top-notch, dollar-guzzling end of the market; - this is not a five star, plush, marbled, palace...but it certainly aspires to be one, and should have five stars for effort! So for comfort, care, cleanliness, convenience and considerable value I would award this particular unique Travelodge an A+ *.

I travel frequently and have had the opportunity to stay in several hotels. The location is perfect when flying into John Wayne, this hotel has it all. Friendly staff, clean quiet rooms,
shuttle service, business center, continental breakfast. What more could you ask for? Superb value.

This is an excellent hotel, very good located, close to the OC Santa
Ana Airport John Wayne (3 minutes by car, only), better that LAX Aiport. If you are travelling to the south of California or going to Disneyland... excellent hotel and excellent location. It has a reasonable price and a good breakfast. Close, you can find
restaurants, etc. Moreover, there are several "latinos" working, so, if you do not speak
English they can help you. I go there from Madrid (Spain)

This is very nice, average motel, near Newport Beach, and Disneyland. The rooms were clean, and each had a fridge and a microwave. The a/c unit has a "fan only" option, so we turned that on at night, for white noise, and we didn't hear a single thing from outside or the rooms around us. The breakfast was free, standard fare: cold cereal, bagels, fruit.
The front desk staff was very friendly; we had to change our reservation dates at the last minute, and they were very accomadating.
We never used the pool, but we went by it, and it was large, appeared very clean and private.
Overall, for the price, it's a great deal. It's not fancy, but it's kept up, good location, and a perfect "home base" if you are planning to do a lot of site seeing, and need a place to come rest and regroup. I will absolutely be staying again next summer.
The ONE thing I would caution: make sure to use mapquest., as the maps make it look like it is right off the freeway, but it is actually kind of tricky to get to, if you don't know your way around the town, which we didn't.

The absolute most disgusting hotel I have ever stayed at. Bed was full of bedbugs, some big, some small, jumping all over the place. The proprietors and Travelodge should be ashamed of themselves. A rotten, flea bitten (literally) dump. Sleep in your car if you have to but don't stay here.

The Assistant Manager went to the room to check the guests complaint; but did not find anything sort of bugs at all. The guest was comped for the night and the guests were perfectly happy. The guests also stayed the night ion the same room. They did not want to switch rooms.
Travelodge is a comfortable and safe hotel to stay in. Our Travelodge is very clean.
