Hotel is near Newport beach shore, though you will need a car to get to the beach and pier area conveniently.
Room was clean, a nice little pool, decent breakfast. Everything was quite standard and good value for the price paid.

This hotel is not for those unfamiliar with the area. The Holiday Inn could not have been further from the action if it tried. The only thing at the hotel is a small cold pool and very tidy rooms. We are local, so we used the small cold pool and drove to Fashion Island, Balboa island and the beach. The girls loved the OC Segway guided tours through Newport Beach and shopping at Fashion Island. Parking tip: Park on the Balboa Island side (free parking) and take the Ferry over to the Peninsula side (Arcades, Ferris wheel, beach, restraunts, pier and OC Segeway) all within walking distance once getting off the ferry.

This Holiday Inn was in walking distance of some great restaurants, a nice little wine shop and some shopping. A bit too far to walk to Balboa Pier so we took a cab. Breakfast was fine. The room was clean with a microwave and mini fridge. The pool is tiny with only 4 lounge chairs and two tables with four chairs. The hot tub looked dirty that night, but somone was cleaning it and the pool in the morning. BONUS -they let us leave our rental car parked in the back while we did an over night trip to Catalina Island.

  • Liked — Let us park the car there while we went to Catalina island
  • Disliked — Tiny pool There were 4 steps to our room even after we too an elevator to the 2nd floor.

Centrally located, clean and safe...what more could one expect? I was very hesitant about staying here despite the reviews, because with HI properties, you either get great or not so great. I was pleasantly surprised. The staff was very nice, the room immaculate, beds totally comfortable, the breakfast was better than expected, and the location was wonderful for those great jaunts to Balboa. I would definitely stay here again!

Not knowing what to expect, this was one of the best Holiday Inn Express properties I have ever stayed in. Very clean and newly remodeled, also has an amazing location that is walking distance to many restaurants/bars/shops and a short cab ride or drive to the beach and many other popular destinations in the area.

Full, hot breakfast, pool and spa, very friendly staff, free wifi, free newspaper on weekdays, etc. are all standard.

What made this an even better experience was the service. When we needed a cab the front desk was happy to call for us and within minutes we had a cab. One night I wanted some chocolate and when I couldn't find a vending machine, the front desk agent gave me some chocolate (they appeared to be VIP amenities on hand). So far above and beyond and totally unexpected.

With other touches like a clean, new microwave and fridge/freezer in-room, this hotel felt like home. Highly recommend!

  • Liked — Clean, great location, great service
  • Disliked — No AC in hallway, small staircase to 2nd story room - had to drag suitcase down stairs
