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!

The staff was very nice and courteous. Easy access to the freeway from the hotel.

The hotel has completed its make over and it is very nice. Great location: close to freeway and walking distance to dining. The price is right.

Hotel was convenient for my purpose, staff very friendly and hotel clean

Stayed one night at the Holiday Inn Costa Mesa for business. The hotel was very clean and the staff were very nice. I highly recommend for a quick business stay.

The room and hotel were clean. It was perfect for a lil getaway near the beach.

Stayed here over the weekend, pretty spendy considering it's location. No parking at all.

The outside of hotel was under construction, and there was no pool. Tyler was very friendly, but Jonathan was rude and was not friendly at all. Under expectations for a Holiday Inn

We were not aware that this hotel was remodeling which affected parking and the overall experience. Main lobby was closed, hard to find a parking spot as contractor containers were taking up room. The window type air conditioner was very noisy and the carpet was wet under the unit. Called for a wake up call but no one at the temporary front desk would answer the phone. Hallways were hot as if the A/C units were not working.

Everything was good. The hotel is situated on a one way street. A lot of unnecessary travel to get to the hotel. More u turns and going around blocks to get there. Not too travel friendly. The staff was excellent. The food was the same as anywhere else. Just average. But for free it fit the bill. The location was very close to everything. I would stay here again.

My Husband and I were vacationing in different spots all over California so we had to book several different hotels.... On our first day, I had booked a room in what looked to be "the nicest hotel of our trip" only to find out looks can be deceiving. The staff was mediocre at best, the elevator was having major issues (our room was 6 floors up) and various other things made this first hotel less than enjoyable. So to our surprise when we booked into our last hotel of our trip (The Holiday Inn Express) We thought we really had it coming. Turns out the staff was the friendliest staff i've ever had the pleasure of meeting, the room was spotless, free parking and free breakfast. I definitely did not expect this hotel to be the best one we stayed in during our trip but it was!

Convenient location, ample parking. A 3-star as stated.
