Courtyard by Marriott Foothill Ranch Irvine East/Lake Forest

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This hotel was in a great location. The room was clean and comfortable. This will be my hotel of choice when traveling to Orange County.

The air conditioner leaked water all over the floor and did not work properly. The pull out bed was tremendously uncomfortable. The staff was nice.

The free parking was perfect. Plenty of spaces close to the hotel entrance. Staff was very accommodating and quick.

I would come back service was really nice felt like the front desk guy cared he made sure u are satisfied

Hotel is new and very nice Two issues I found a bit disturbing. One was they would not give me credit on my Marriott account as we booked through Orbitz. and the other was the rate included breakfast however the facility did not start serving until 7:30 am which was too late for us as we had an appointment that required us to leave just as the breakfast service began

The room is cute, clean and modern. Nice and very comfortable.

Very clean and nice good location and close restaurants and gas station

The fact that there are no vending machines, and instead only a "market" with incredibly over-priced products, is ridiculous. Also, if you're going to make your guests pay for breakfast, you should at least make the cafe open all day, or maybe post their hours at least?! The fact that there is a "Later" menu implies that it would be open for lunch, but our 5 year old was extremely upset she could not get a sandwich at 11:30. The room was clean and relatively comfortable. However, our 5 year old was sleeping on the sofa bed, and they would not give us any pillows for it, so my partner and I had to give up some of the thin ones provided on our Queen bed. Lastly, what's up with hotels not having detatchable shower heads? I'm sure this decision was made by men. Ladies need to rinse all the soap off their lady parts for proper hygiene.

the room we checked into was not clean .....desk did not know

Given that we just popped in for a night after a wedding, we had an awesome time. However, there was no fridge in the room, and we had brought some perishables to make our own food the next day (nothing over a stove top, just sandwiches). Other than that, it was great. With a nice pool and spa, and a tasty (albeit expensive) restaurant, it was what you'd expect from a Marriott Courtyard.

We stopped here to sleep during a long road trip from VA to Seattle. It was so cozy and comfortable and the staff was immensely friendly. Great experience!

I would rate everything about this hotel a 10 with the exception of the BED. Maybe it is because I have a $2500 mattress at home, but I felt like I was on a Board. I commend the staff for the friendliness and I really have to compliment housekeeping for keeping that room spotless. I love the location.

Nice hotel for a pong weekend get away. Didn't have to pay the beach front prices. Only about a 20 minute drive to the beach. The hot tub wasnnot working.

The set-up worked perfectly for our family. We have young children, and the sofa-bed (lower to the ground for kids that may still fall out of bed occasionally) was exactly what we needed. The room was comfortable and location was perfect. Tons of shopping and dining options nearby and only 25 minutes to the beach. Hotel staff was kind.

Great staff Excellent location for Mission Viejo. We will stay there again.

hotel staff very friendly great breakfast nice area with lots of places to eat and shop

All around positive experience. Fairly modern, fresh appearance. Location convenient to Foothill Ranch/ Lake Forest area. Pleasant environment, gracious staff. No shopping in the immediate vicinity, but, several food establishments close by including a Starbucks.

The staff are very friendly and helpful. Rooms are comfortable. Pool is nice. Dining area is good. Had everything I needed and is close to the locations I was visiting.

The stay was great. Staff was perfect, and when my hair dryer did not work I called the front desk and within five minutes someone was at my door with a replacement.

Our stay at the Courtyard Marriott was for a local wedding. We were exceptionally pleased with our accommodations -- the room was clean and comfortable, and with an up-to-date feel: the climate control was more advanced than most hotels, the lights used a combination of switches and motion detectors, and there was a choice in-room between wired and wireless high speed internet. We also spent time in the pool & Jacuzzi, which were clean and fun. The feature that really impressed us, though, was the staff. Everyone with whom we interacted was not just professional, but genuinely friendly and welcoming in a way that surprised us (we travel considerably, but haven't run into such a sincerely friendly staff before). Kudos to the team at Courtyard Marriott.
