This was our second hotel on a week-long DIY tour of Southern California. We were attending a wedding at Laguna Beach, so this was a good location with more reasonable rates than many of the places down along the PCH. We used Lyft to go to the wedding and back, which worked out quite well. Like with my previous hotel,...

Our room was nicely decorated beds were comfortable. The shower took about 4 minutes to heat up and I miss read that there was no complimentary breakfast. Overall it was alright. No tub for my son to have a bath just shower. The rug trim is kinda ugly. I gave 4 stars cause my back didnt hurt from sleeping, cause...

This hotel had vastly improved the last time we stayed, and it's still (mostly) good. However, check-in is still ridiculously slow. Our room was a decent size and nicely appointed. The bed was comfortable and had all non-feather pillows...allergy sufferers thank you! Each nightstand had a lamp with a power outlet on its base--perfect for charging phones and devices at...

I stayed here for one night after having Lasik eye surgery at a nearby facility. The hotel is located right next to the 5 freeway but I found my stay to be quite quiet and enjoyable. The hotel provides a shuttle service, which is a convenient amenity, though I imagine most visitors would have a car with them. My room...

We were visiting friends and decided to try The Hills Hotel and overall enjoyed our three-night stay. The location is great next to the 405 and we did not hear any road noise. The staff was great, the breakfasts were very good and the room was comfortable. The few inconsistencies in an otherwise upscale hotel were really very minor, but...

This hotel has all the signs of a very cosmetic surgery . Everything appears okay on the surface but if you dig a little you will see its all falling apart. I will say the rate was reasonable and the food from room service was enjoyable. However the hotel itself is in bad shape. The air conditioner in my room...

Loved staying here !!!!! I would recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the area. The staff was great, and the food was delish. The wedding staff was very attentive throughout the night. A beautiful room didn't hurt either.

We were looking for a reasonably priced hotel at last minute. We were told that it was an older hotel. We were extremely pleased that it was remodeled. It was clean and very comfortable. The beds and rooms were very nice!
