We began staying here five to six years ago and were members of the "club." Always stayed in the "silo" and knew to ask for "king, non-smoking, parking lot side, second or third floor." Even had room numbers memorized. Remodeled in last few years, better beds, nicer amenities. Very large rooms in silo if you get the KING size bed. Only a single window, stuffy at night as noise prevents leaving the window open and no "cross breeze" anyway. Concrete, unpainted walls which might turn some people off. Easy to hear footsteps upstairs. Drainage of tub/shower molasses slow on third floor or higher - avoid. Used to be easily able to redeem our "frequent flyer" nights. Now almost impossible or later told that additional charge for silo, though that is where we always stayed. Prices continue to rise - don't fall for the quoted price as that pertains to the standard building... I think... certainly not the silo room we always used. Breakfast in the past was loud and crowded but fun as they had waffle irons, PROTEIN (hard boiled eggs), greater variety of fresh fruit. That is gone. Packaged sweet rolls and yogurt are the fare of the day. Skip it and eat next door.
Lots of LOUD noise from the bar/restaurant next door and parking on that side is almost impossible. Would assume it is the bar patrons that run through the building (one night we stood outside for an hour - apparently one "patron" pulled the fire alarm.
Basically we are done with LaQuinta Irvine - which is too bad as there are not many places to stay other than near the airport. Just don't like feeling we are being gouged - especially when we have spent better than 60 nights there. Are headed down again this week to see family, but LaQuinta has lost us for good.
Breakfast WAS a treat in the past, now just ordinary, but NOT a reason to avoid this hotel.
Have not experienced anything but courtesy from any employee over the years, so a former reviewer had what I think was an isolated incident.
