This property is a little older but the rooms were clean and the breakfast was very good. Hot pancakes, Omelettes and breakfast meat. Coffee was excellent. The breakfast was better than another national chain we stayed at on this trip. We will definitely stay here the next time we are in Costa Mesa, California.

I didnt like that early check-in was not available to us but it was to others because of the specific room order that they received through orbitz was a handicap accessible room. I told them that we don't need it but they still made us wait an hour before checking us into a non-handicap accessible room.

Very clean, comfortable, good size rooms and nice breakfast. The location was the only thing that could use improvement. Good for business travelers.

Friendly staff, was able to check in right away. In a safe neighborhood.

Helpful staff. Easy access to the freeways. Breakfast was good also.

Great service. Let us check in early! Room was comfortable and clean. Breakfast was good!

Good location and adequate for rest & recharge. Thats all I need to say.

We arrived late in the evening, and it seemed that parking was an issue. The hotel staff rectified the issue expeditiously, and also helped us with our luggage. Great staff and very welcoming.

The hotel was nice. The breakfast was good and the hotel staff was very friendly. The location, though, left a lot to be desired. It was 2 feet from a senior village. We could literally look out our window straight into a senior apartment. It was not in an area where you could walk to any shops or restaurants. If all you need is a nice place to sleep, this is the place for you! If you are going there for a vacation....maybe go to some other location.

We liked that it was very clean, staff is very friendly and very helpful professional, they need more parking space.

It was so very nice and clean the whole property the pool area was clean. We will stay again felt very safe..

Clean & comfortable room. Free breakfast was nice too.

Excellent staff reception guy Frankie absolutely helpful!

Hotel is older and more rundown than I expected. It is also further away from OC airport than I realized. Our room was OK but very noisy from the parking lot (we were on the 1st floor) The water coming from the shower was very dirty/gray looking possibly from pipes or shower-head... I notified the staff. Staff was very friendly

The front desk staff seem overworked and unhappy and as a result were dour and unapologetic ( for a plugged toilet requiring a room change because the maintenance staff had gone for the day).Anither staffer berated me for not knowing I would not be getting a receipt from the hotel ( but from Expedia). The chambermaid was wonderfully friendly but arrived to clean my room at 4:15.

The hotel was clean and everyone we saw working there was really nice. Pool was a little small. But overall and good experience.

It was a nice place and very close to the beach but they need a little more parking space

Good central location, clean, nice people and affordable price!
