Recent guest reviews

I had a late arrival but was greeted warmly. The staff answered my questions and provided me with all I needed, including a bottle of water for my CPAP machine. The room was comfortable and clean and surprisingly quiet. I say that, because it is located near the airport and on a busy street, one would have expected more noise. I had a pleasant stay.

Always have liked this hotel. Love the room layout & decor.

Just had some kids in the pool blowing off some steam needed all my sleep

I would definatly stay at this hotel again. It was reasonably priced for such a clean and spacious room. The elevator made me a little nervous, but overall a great hotel. And, Starbucks is conveniently located across the street for your morning coffee run.

Nice location and very quiet. Room is clean and comfortable.

Our a/c broke around 4pm (an hour after we checked in). Maintenance came and said he needed to come back to replace a part. We told him we were leaving but can come in the room to fix it. We got back around 11pm and the a/c was still not fixed. They advised us that we would have to wait until 6:30am. We were only spending one night there! We asked to be moved but they were booked. The lady at the desk had a slight attitude as well. She had the "well what do you want me to do" tone. They ended up giving us a fan.. It did not quite help with the heat. I'm not sure what happened between 4-11pm. That's a lot of hours to be able to get the a/c fixed. By the way, no one came at 6:30am to get anything fixed.

It was a nice place. Very easy to get to and the valet staff helped me find places in the area.

Booked on short notice, I guess I was a bit disappointed there was no breakfast included not to mention a parking fee.

Staffs are nice but rooms are so so. Old room smell as we have walk in. It is what it is.

We were charged an extra $10.00 once we arrived unsue why or what we were being charged for. Nothing was stated on why we had a ten dollar charge at check in

The hotel was good, when I'm check in the front desk very helpful,the room was good and comfortable, accept smell something in the room when you first walk in . Good location near by freeway and the airport.

Good night rest after long drive and ready for next morning activities.

good place to take rest and close to restaurants, markets, and entertainment.

Nice hotel and close to many attractions. Nice decoration and friendly staff.

We stayed here while we toured a couple college campuses. It was close enough to them and the beach. The hotel staff was very friendly and accommodating! At check-in they moved our room to one that was facing the parking lot since it would be a little more quiet because of the baby. Well that didn't work out so great because they put us near the pool but it wasn't bad at all. My son slept the whole night and didn't hear a peep from the people at the pool. The pool closes at 11pm. Overall I would stay here again. It was very clean and all hotel staff greeted us whenever walking through the hotel.

This hotel met all of our needs. Location, cleanliness and amenities were all great.

Hotel was ok for the price. A little out of the way. Nothing special but decent if you are just looking for a place to crash for the night.

This is my 2nd time I stay here. I was very satisfied the room was clean and smelled like new. I'll com back.

Great experience. Very quiet even it close to the busy streets. Free shuttle to Orange County Airport at close range. Very convenient.

The staff was very friendly and helpful, the airport shuttle was efficient, the hotel was clean and the rooms on the parking lot side were very quiet. There are a lot of good food options across the street.
