The hotel is beautiful however the room we reserved and booked was not available to us. We had 4 adults booked in a double queen room and we were given a single King bed for all four of us.

This Courtyard is very similar to the Riverside UCR hotel. Nice lobby, nice rooms, a grill instead of the free continental breakfast that serves breakfast and lunch along with alcohol. Good location for business visitors in the Foothill Ranch area with excellent access to the 241 Toll Road.

I found this property great. First off, it is newer, clean, quiet and a friendly staff. The location was good for a business trip for me, but the bonus was a trail system just a block from the front door. The trails are wide, well cared for, quiet and challenging. I was on them as soon as the sun arose...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Cradled by the Saddleback Mountains, the Courtyard Foothill Ranch Irvine East Hotel is an oasis in South Orange County. We're perfectly situated between Lake Forest and Rancho Santa Margarita. Our Foothill Ranch hotel is surrounded by many wilderness parks and yet a short drive away from the elegance of Newport Beach, Corona Del Mar and the coves, eclectic atmosphere and art galleries of Laguna Beach. Back at our hotel, experience our high-tech lobby featuring The Bistro, which serves Starbucks coffee, where you can sit and enjoy a full meal and cocktails in the evening, or grab an appetizer or something light to go. Stay connected with free Wi-Fi and our interactive GoBoard(R) technology, providing relevant, up-to-date news, weather and local information. Guests of our Lake Forest, CA hotel appreciate our smartly-designed rooms that provide the right mix of relaxation and flexible functionality. When downtime arises, soak up the California sun and relax at our outdoor pool and whirlpool. ... more   less
