We were four people staying in a suite. There was plenty of room. The room was very clean. Any requests were met immediately. Good value. Easy access to freeway and airport. Pool was very clean and enjoyable. We were able to use computer in the lobby to print boarding passes and get driving directions to restaurants and and entertainment.

Booked this hotel last minute as we were seeing a concert at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater nearby. Hotel is in a decent area, easy on and off access to Fwy. Staff at front desk were extremely friendly both during check-in and check-out. The room was comfortable, not overly spacious, but they've remodeled them to be nice, with crown mouldings, etc. A separate living room area with TV with a couch and chair, and then we had two queens in bedroom area. Bathroom is very small with a shower and toilet only. There is then a bowl sink that sits on dresser in front of the beds. This is an awkward set up, but one that was "ok" for a one night stay.

There was a group of teens/young adults loitering by the elevators when we arrived back to the hotel after the concert. Later, as I was laying in bed, I could hear loud talking and horsing around, then about 30 minutes later a major altercation between what sounded like a male and a female started with screaming and yelling, cursing and horrible name calling. I am unsure if it was the same group of young people, but I was just getting ready to call the front desk when it stopped. It scared me enough that I got up and checked the locks on our room door to make sure ours was locked, as I was traveling without my husband this time and just my two daughters. Otherwise, the beds were comfortable, bedding decent and it was an overall comfortable stay for an inexpensive last minute hotel booking.

Breakfast looked unappealing and we did not stay for the food, but we rarely do these days. Coffee was also disappointing. Within a few exits of South Coast Plaza for some upscale shopping and one exit away from the Irvine Spectrum for additional shopping.

If you're looking for a no frills, clean and inexpensive place to stay, this will work fine.

Everything at this hotel exceeded my expectations! The staff was friendly and helpful and the breakfast was good, except they had turkey bacon instead of real bacon. I would definitely stay at this hotel again.

We went to Laguna Beach for PAGEANT OF THE MASTERS...& this hotel was very close. Good breakfast ... traveled with friends who stayed in another room. Only problem: our room had noise from the air conditioner (not ours, we turn it off at night) probably next to our room..... People at the front desk very helpful and friendly.... Would recommend this hotel.....

Excellent property. I have stayed on numerous occasions and have been extremely satisfied with physical accommodation and, helpfulness of hotel staff. Location is freeway close, near a multitude of restaurants, in a nice neighborhood and convenient to shopping. I would highly recommend this hotel for business or pleasure travel.
