I use this hotel monthly to book guests traveling to our office on business, and have been doing so for over a year. The staff is amazing and always goes above and beyond. The rooms are very modern and comfy. Our guests have only given incredibly glowing feedback of their experience. We also host dinners at their restaurant, and I...

This hotel was actually recommended to me last time I was in Irvine so I decided to check it out. It's a little further south than I expected, but so close to the Spectrum which is really convenient. Staff was exceptional, and the check in was smooth and fast. The rooms are cozy and wine reception was a nice added...

Great service and super clean rooms. I really enjoyed the numerous breakfast buffet options and the service felt like going out to breakfast. I'd stay here again next time I'm in the area. Stop shopping and book this hotel!

First, let me say that I have never stayed at a motel or hotel where people get up at 6 AM and have sex, banging against the headboard, panting and screaming. Not only did it happen in the same room, but also with 2 different couples on 2 different days around the same time. Just nasty! So much for getting...

I have been staying here now for a week on business and I am extremely satisfied by the friendly staff and convenient location. I had to switch my room due to a strange odor and they were very accommodating and moved me right away. I definitely feel at home here. Also another great feature of the hotel is they have...

Nice little property, great location. Housekeeping is clearly over worked. They did not get to my room until 2:30. I intentionally went out for the morning for them to get it done because I wanted to go back to the room and work in the afternoon. We had a wonderful waiter (Ricardo) for breakfast😀 he is a very nice and...

I've stayed at 3 other hotels in the area. This is favorite although priciest and sometimes unavailable. I like that this hotel has restaurant on site. This visit was especially pleasant because of the bartender, Amber. Did you ever meet someone who has a natural skill? Amber's skill is service. She is very personable and is quick to anticipate the...

My first time staying at a Holiday Inn so I didn't know what to expect. It was decent. Not bad but also nothing spectacular. It was clean. Parking was easy and free and hotel staff was friendly. Prices were also reasonable.
