“Pretty good.”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

This is a decent hotel with ok amenities. Very economical. If you're looking for convenience, low price without too many extras then this is the place for you. If you want GREAT beds with decent workout place... Look elsewhere. Service is good though. Friendly staff.

Room Tip: Ask for room with patio by the pool. On bottom floor.

Couldn't say anything bad if I wanted too. The service is top notch. The hotel staff and housekeeping were the best I've witnessed in a long time. Very clean. The room was wonderful. Bed so comfy! Hallways very tidy. The food was delish! Can't say enough about how great everything is...if you come to Santa Ana, this is the only place to stay! Thank you.

Room Tip: Any room would be great...

Stayed one night here for business travel. It was convenient, clean, quiet and efficient. I had the breakfast buffet downstairs for 9.99 since it was convenient and it was small but good. The hotel and breakfast staff are excellent. Parking is very convenient too.

what most impressed me about this hotel was the impeccable customer service. From the first moment of arrival and greeting, swift check-in and information from the front desk ( including restaurant lists, take out food and delivery places and the fact that the hotel shuttle will take you to the airport and /or dinner locations within 3 miles), this John Wayne Airport area location was the best. As this was a two- day stay for a business conference, had the opportunity to deal extensively with the Food and beverage/banquet business meeting staff. There are several meeting rooms, and all was set up--early,--and to our group's specifications. Staff was ever present to ensure all was going smoothly, and this was a welcome change. The hotel also has a small bar area, which also serves food ( a pretty extensive menu) that also has an attached dining room, atrium area and room service. The bartender was very attentive and made sure we did not go thirsty! The hotel rooms were roomy and updated with new bedding, drapery, granite countertops. Only downside was that walls were pretty thin...could hear next room TV and at time conversations, even from the hallway. Hotel is also located next to the freeway, however no freeway noise was noticeable. All in all, the superlative service and aim-to-please attitude made for effective conducting of business and a very pleasant personal stay.

This is a nice hotel close to John Wayne airport and not that far from the beach. It took about 5 minutes to drive from the airport to the HI, and about 10 minutes from the HI to the ocean. There is not much around the hotel, so you will have to drive a short distance.

The room is a typical king: Bed, HDTV (even though most of the channels are not HD); fridge, microwave, desk, couch, bathroom. Water pressure was good and plenty of hot water. One negative was that the walls are pretty thin. I could hear the TV in the next room very clearly. The wireless was sometime weak and at maximum I only had four out of five bars. Everything was clean, including the outside areas.

Breakfast was also typical: eggs, bacon, sausage, cereal, pastries/breads, and each morning there was a rotating ‘main item’ such as pancakes, waffles, French toast.

Staff was friendly. My only complaint is that at the (small) bar, the bartender often wandered away.

At check-in, ask for a list of restaurants. There are several within a quick drive, especially at ‘The District’.

Overall, it was a good hotel. I would stay here again when visiting the area.

I spent the night during a 2 day seminar that was being held here. The staff was very nice and extremely helpful.

The facilities are well maintained and very comfortable. Due to the seminar I did not have time to check out the pool.

The location is close to shopping, the airport and right next to the freeway. there is more than enough parking (and it's free, something you don't find in LA).

I have been to seminars held here in the past and they all have been more than pleasant experiences.

I will be staying here again.

I recently stayed at the Holiday Inn Santa Ana for 3 nights. The hotel is well situated and close to the airport and shopping malls. The room was pretty good, but could do with a make over. However, the bed was comfortable and the breakfast good. Nothing to complain about (except for the slow and weak wireless internet), but nothing really remarkable or special. The staff are friendly and polite.
