The room was clean and comfortable, even bigger than we thought it would be. It was quiet too, which is not what I can say about most other hotels we've stayed in recently. The staff was polite.
Being on the intersection of I-55 and Katella, you can't ask for better access to Orange attractions: there are restaurants and shopping 5 minutes to the North (Panera Bread, Walmart, In-N-Out, sushi bars, etc.), Disneyland is a few minutes West on Katella (great food there too, at Downtown Disney), and the Orange beaches just 15-20 minutes South on 55.
On the negative side, this hotel is behind a gas station, kinda shady looking, and there's only one small car entrance/exit that was being used by a construction crew when we stayed here. One day, it took us 15 minutes to get out of the hotel because the construction workers parked their heavy equipment right on the exit. Not the hotel's fault, of course. Another negative was the breakfast: not many options, unless you're good to go with only a toast and a cup of coffee. But there are great options nearby.
Overall, a good deal in Orange County.
