“basically an average mall.....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2013

I don't understand the hype because it is your basic large mall. Blindfold me and drop me off here and I could be in any large shopping mall across the US with the same cookie cutter stores. I saw a larger than normal security presence which makes me wonder if there have been some issues in the past.

“Best Outlet Mall”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

After shopping at Desert Hills in Cazabon while staying in Palm Springs for a couple of weeks, I wished I had driven a little further and come here. Ontario Mills has more stores, more selection in the stores as well. We were on limited time getting back to Newport beach that day, so we used the bathroom corridors to cut through the "neighborhoods" as they are classified. The mall is indoor, and large, so they have made neighborhoods in the mall so you can tell if you're remotely close to the store you're looking for. The prices in Calvin Klein (my favorite) and similar stores were better. The clearance racks were full of great clothes instead of crap like at Desert Mills.

Take them to Ontario Mills - something for everyone.

“Big Outlet, some Good Deals some not. If u want outlets might be good, If looking for nice shopping area might not”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

If you are looking for outlet stores, this mall might be an option with (factory stores and Department stores outlets, if you are looking for a nice shopping mall, this may not be for you. Ontario Mills as a shopping mall has gone down hill and now some of the crowd you see, some look like thugs and or gang member, weird loud people may be a turn off. Victoria Gardens might be a nice friendly clean outdoor shopping alternative (off the 15 FWY @ Foothill)

There are a number of stores that offer some really great deals, and there are just as many that are a complete waste of time, Its oval shape may make you do lots of walking, if you have the time to go thru all the neighborhoods (zones) Eventually you will walk and end up on same place u started. if you know in advance what stores you want to visit then you can head straight there and avoid some of the stores that are a waste of time.

Now, if you have people on your group that like to shop and spend hours looking at stuff to weed out the good deals from the trash, you can then go to the movies (2 theathers complex. One right there at the mall and one across the parking lot. You can also find Dave & Busters and gameworls so you can watcha movie play some games while your party shops.

What you can find high end deparment store outlets like Nordtrom rack, Off 5th Saks, Chance Neiman Marcus. Some factory outlets like Hugo Boss, Lacoste, Polo Ralph Lauren, Guess, Hollister, BeBe, Calvin Klein, Gucci, Coach. Discount stores like Marshalls, and Burlington Coat Factory, JC Penney outlet

“Brief Visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

My first visit to Ontario Mills felt like Deja vu. It reminded me of other similar outlet malls that I had visited. However, it seemed that this Mall was distinguished by the size and stock of many of the stores. I had gone not really expecting to buy anything. However because of the range of offerings I came away with a number of shirts and two very nice coats. The food hall is good. Again, probably larger than many other similar establishments.
