“Perfect home away from home!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2009

I selected this hotel as a "home base" to use while visiting friends and family in the area. I did a bit of research before selecting this hotel, but it basically came down to a random selection between this and the other nearby suite hotels. I couldn't have been happier with my choice! The rooms are large and bright, the staff is friendly, and the location is great for getting around South Orange County. The hotel is located at the edge of a business park so it's off the main drag, but just minutes from a large shopping center with a supermarket, restaurants, Target, movie theater, etc. The hotel also has easy access to main freeways, the tollway and the Irvine Spectrum shopping center. The rooms with kitchenettes have a full size fridge, microwave and stove for in-room cooking, but the hotel also offers a complementary breakfast (daily) and "happy hour" light dinner and drinks (M - Th). The happy hour food was substantial -- real food that was enough for dinner (not just chips and popcorn). The outdoor pool was clean and heated (even in the off-season), and the inner courtyard also has BBQs and a sport court. Most of the guests seemed to be there for business, so the hotel is quiet during the day and on weekends. My children loved the pool and all the space in the courtyard area, and I was happy to have a place to stay with separate bedroom and living room space. The hotel is not particularly close to Disneyland or the beach, but it surpassed my expectations in terms of facilities and value-for-money. I would highly recommend the Staybridge Suites to anyone who needs a "home away from home" when in the Lake Forest area for business or visiting friends and family.

We searched Orange County for extended stay hotels and were lucky to find this one. This hotel just opened earlier this year. The staff is friendly and helpful. They serve a great breakfast each morning (it isn't dry sweet rolls and bagels on a plate). They also serve a light snack, beer and wine in the evening (free and served Mon-Thurs). Although they call this a "snack" it has certainly can serve as dinner. They have free laundry facilities. During our stay (over 30 days, we were waiting for a home to be completed), we saw families on vacation and a lot of business people. This hotel is located near business complexes, but just up the street there are many restaurants, stores and a large movie theater that serve the residents of Foothill Ranch, (aka Lake Forest), which is a fairly new community in Orange County. Perfect place to stay if visiting anywhere in Orange County!
