“Nice hotel, but not inspiring.”
Reviewed March 27, 2014

The hotel is overall very nice. The decor is classic. I love the sconces in the hallways, the hotel "feels" like it has class. The room was good, but not great. The restaurant was clean, but rarely had many people in it. We did not eat there. The pool and hot tub were great. The pond is great. The ducks are great. I can't believe that we're charging for parking in this area, but just anticipate it. The number of spaces provided for "Park it yourself" folks were limited.

Back to the room...overall, the room is pretty standard. Although there are some upscale features, it wasn't much different than the room you'd get at a super 8 or motel 6. Don't get me wrong, there are some nice features, but for the price, and the overall rating of the hotel, I just didn't see it. Bathroom was nice, there was no closet in my room, the ironing board was a small table top model, and worst of all, the AC buzzed. Not the hotel's fault, I didn't let them know. I'm sure they would have fixed it had I let them know. Beds were comfortable, but springy, and not unique in any way. Pillows were standard Hilton issue.

Overall, it's a great place. Nice location. BUT there are better values around the area. I would look around more to see what you can find. Traffic noise is an issue, but the airport wasn't as much as I thought it would be.

Room Tip: If you can get one away from the freeway, that is better. Good luck getting them to change it.

Comfortabld stay. Clean rooms and public areas. Professional, friencly staff. Dven though this property is located near a freeway, I hardly noticed any traffic noise. Their business center has two computers and a printer for use fof guests. The downside is that the room is enclosed and has no ventilation or air conditioning. After 5 minutesI was sweating BIG TIME. A Starbucks and 3 or4 food court type restaraunts are located within walking distance. The hotel also has an Orange County bus stop right in front of it.

Room Tip: Be advised a large niumber of youth groups book tnis hotel in the summer.

I was very lucky to score an upgrade to "The Balboa Suite" on the top floor. Being on the corner it has almost no noise from other rooms. The suite is huge with dining and living areas, bedroom and large bathroom. The amenities are sparse, with just tea and coffee, but the room service was good.
While there I was able to use the free shuttle to travel to and get picked up from The District shopping Mall in Tustin.
If you choose to eat breakfast there, unless you actually like the "American buffet" style of bad scrambled eggs, dessicated bacon and weird tiny fried sausages, I recommend you order from the menu. It's less expensive, and much better food.

My opinion follows: This hotel is in an interesting location, but once you get there is a nice place to stay. Very close to the airport and equidistant to the beach and Disneyland. The room is nicely done and the staff were friendly and helpful. The gym is tiny and the $11 fee for parking is an outrage this far from attractions and the beaches. There is another Doubletree down the street and around the corner, which created initial confusion.

Great location, not the best Hilton branded hotel. The room was small, the shower was weak, and the room was very loud. The staff was helpful, but it was just a mediocre experience. I would not likely be back to this hotel in the future.
