Best Western Plus Irvine Spectrum Hotel

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stayed at this hotel while attending a conference in the area. The rooms are clean, beds are comfortable so it was sufficient. The breakfast was mediocre at best and the supplies were not kept up sufficiently because the room was understaffed. There was only one working ice machine in the entire place - and we were there in August! It's hot out. Ice is kind of important!

stayed here for 3 nights with the wife on a leisure trip to laguna beach/newport. Hotel is right off the the 5 freeway in a convenient location. parking can get dicey especially late at night when we checked in (spots in the garage are very small). they had one gentleman working the counter when we checked in and he was busy helping another guest so we had to wait (not long) but we had no idea if anyone was at the desk or not. The lady in front of us got fed up and left. but after this we had a very nice experience. the room was large and comfortable. internet worked fine. the breakfast dining area is muggy/crowded especially at peak times. egg/hashbrowns are served by a cook and otherwise they had waffles and pastries/cereal with some fruit. dining area was a bit uncomfortable given the heat. they have a nice interior sitting/dining area at reception/lobby so was unsure why this was not used for breakfast purposes. best part of hotel is probably its location. about 8 miles from laguna beach (took a while to get there due to traffic but still not bad). only 5 minutes from irvine spectrum center. and right next to highway 5. overall a quality stay for a decent price compared to other much more pricey hotels closer to the beaches.

Good location for our travel. Many near by restaurants to choose from with wide variety of types of food. A cook cooking eggs, sausage and bacon fresh each morning. Very clean and well appointed dining area. Staff super freiendly and on the ball. Hide-a-bed was not good even as they go. Mattress cover was loud crackly plastic and bottom sheet would not stay tucked in - uncomfortable for an adult. Nice room layout with separate bedroom area with TVs in each room. I'd definitely stay here again.

Hotel offered great amenities for a great price, room was very spacious and we liked the privacy of a corner room. Would stay here again if I'm ever back in this area. Would recommend this place to friend and family. Looks like great place to stay for families.

Have stayed at other Best Westerns in the past so I was a bit disappointed in this one. Felt it was a bit old and not kept us as well as it should have been. Some areas in our room were fine well others not so good. Torn shower curtains, safe & alarm clock not working, big red spot on carpet. The breakfast was good and the employees working in that area very nice. Probably won't stay at this hotel again.

Good 3 star hotel. Clean and friendly staff. Large room. Fridge microwave coffee maker. Bathroom in good condition. Everything works well. WAsher and dryer on the premises at $2 to run each machine but there is only 1 wAsher and 1 dryer. Plenty of free parking and the pool looked nice. Free breakfast was okay. Basic but good variety and it is all fresh.

Very satisfying stay in this hotel, the staff very kind and responsible. Breakfast is great, rooms are great, overall my stay was very pleasant. Definitely will recommend this hotel if you are going to be in the area.

beautiful room and very central to where we wanted to be, good rate. Very friendly staff at breakfast , great breakfast items. I am vegan and really appreciated the options I had Definitely recommend this hotel

We were looking for a hotel next to the Irvine Spectrum so we could walk over to it a have a cocktail, shop and walk back to the hotel. Turns out it's not close to the Spectrum. You would have to drive. As Best Western Plus hotels go, this was a bad experience. The TVs were analog, not HD. WiFi was unavailable during our stay. The toilet was broke upon arrival. No shuttle service available to the Spectrum. We left that night because it was so disappointing.

We stayed two nights at this hotel and we well impressed with quality and services of the hotel. Breakfast was well stock and attended were keeping tables clean. Room well decorated and clean. Parking is tight and challenging to find space for late arrival.
