I have stayed at my fair share of Holiday Inns. This one was nice and clean with nice size rooms. The staff was friendly and helpful. We had a nice breakfast or first morning and the waitress was amazing. There is a pool but we did not use it. It's in a great location and just off the highway. I...

I frequent Orange County and have stayed at this hotel multiple times over the years. The staff, in particular Lars, is always exceptional and go out of their way to ensure your stay meets all your expectations. Very close to the Irvine Spectrum shopping center and close enough to beaches to make this an acceptable choice for beach vacations. Excellent...

I always stay here for my Irvine business trips. Easy to get to off the freeway, free parking, a good location close to my work. Great free wifi in the room, which is always fresh and clean. Room service was excellent and personable. All the staff were friendly, particularly Carmen and Gaby in the morning. There are malls and restaurants...

Alex at the aqua lounge is awesome. He took such good care of me. He was so friendly and kind. He made friends with all in the bar. Young and old, he related to. He was very efficient, kind, and attentive. And he made some delicious drinks. I will return simply because of him:):):)

My first stay here was flawless. Friendly guy on late evening check-in made sure I had a good room location even though I am not a frequent IHG traveler. Room was clean and efficient, plus had microwave and small fridge. Free wifi worked perfectly. The highlight >> best biz-travel hotel breakfast I've had in a long time. (I'm a Marriott...

I have been using Holiday Inn Irvine Spectrum for every trip to Irvine since 2012. The hotel has wonderful people, great service, and has been consistent from my first visit to the current visit. From the front desk, maid service, to the service in the restaurant (Carmen and Gabriella in this visit), I will never hesitate to use and recommend...

The hotel is super clean. Zero issue there. Staff was very professional. I booked my room at Holiday Inn's own website and I must have missed the part where it says the buffet is NOT included. Not a big deal, but no one told me that until I was literally eating. Again, not that big of a deal, but I...

I usually stay at this hotel while on business travel. The staff has always been forthcoming, friendly. Rooms are clean and comfortable. The breakfast buffet is OK and could be improved a bit more so that it looks more fresh and inviting. However , all these is compensated by a great smile from Carmen who greets and serves coffee. Thank...

Great place to stay in Lake Forest, the breakfast buffet is better than most. All the people are friendly, and Gaby in the restaurant is especially friendly and helpful. Rooms are nice, ant they have DirecTV in the rooms which gives you great choices for Television.
