NEW! Samsung Flat-panel TVs with 30 channels of HD programming. Easy-access Plug-and-Play feature makes it simple to connect electronics. The Old Town Historic La Quinta Inn & Suites Irvine Spectrum is in a league of its own. Converted from a bean and grain warehouse with unique rooms built in a lima bean silo, this three-story hotel is listed in the National Registry of Historical Sites. Amenities are plentiful and modern, including Free Bright Side BreakfastTM, a Fitness Center, a refreshing pool, and relaxing spa. We're a short trip to Disneyland and Laguna Beach, even closer to the concert venues of Verizon Amphitheater, and to Irvine Spectrum, Orange County's premier dining, shopping and entertainment destination. Visit the world famous Pageant of the Masters "living pictures" classical and contemporary art re-creations. Shop the stores of South Coast Plaza and Fashion Island. We are within walking distance of The Great Park for Farmers Market, Tethered Helium Balloon Ride, Denny's, Knowlwoods and other restaurants. The La Quinta Inn & Suites Irvine Spectrum is located in the center of Old Town Irvine between interstate 5 and interstate 405, with easy access to freeways and a gateway of local attractions. All rooms include free high-speed Internet access, a coffee maker, hair dryer, and much more. Our courteous staff promises a delightful experience!

Lovely and charming but loud trains!

Such a cool building and rooms. Unfortunately it is located right next to a train track that had loud trains go by throughout the day. But the hotel was very clean and the staff was super nice!

Poor Service

One of my worst experience's so far. Judith at the front desk was very rude and gave some of the poorest customer service I have ever experienced. They were understaffed and Judith made it very clear that it wasn't her problem and me as a customer would just have to suffer. We were checked in over n hour late because they were not ready and Judith said it was because they were understaffed. When we got to our room we needed to take showers to ge ready for a wedding, I called the front desk and Judith answered I asked for more towels and she said they didn't have any because they were in the dryer, I asked if she could please help find me just one extra towel and she said it would be about 20 min. She never brought a towel and we had to use just one our entire stay.

On train tracks

No point staying here if you want a good night's sleep. Trains run constantly and some shake the ground and walls.

Not the Typical LaQuinta

One wing of this hotel is built into a 1940's era lima bean silo. The other wing is typical La Quinta. I stayed in the silo building and really enjoyed it. One note: there are very busy train tracks just next to the silo building. My room overlooked the tracks and I have to say I got a kick out of it. Nearly all the trains are of the passenger variety and pass in just 3-5 seconds but they do it with horns blaring since there is a level crossing just at the hotel. Trains pass every ten minutes or so during the morning and afternoon. Either the trains don't run in the middle of the night or I slept through them, not sure which. The room itself, the breakfast, the bathroom were all typical La Quinta which means "just fine but nothing special".
