My husand, dogs and kids have been on a 21 day journey driving from the Philly area down the eastern seaboard across the Gulf Coast region.

When I first got off of the exit for this hotel, I was a little hesitant, old part of town and didn't look like much in the area. Wasn't sure I was gonna stay there? Checked into hotel, front desk and lobby was very nice, employees very friendly! My room could not have been nicer or cleaner! Full kitchen, comfy...

This was a great hotel close to many areas of Dana Point and San Juan Capistrano. We were in town for 5 nights for a family reunion, and this hotel was easy to get in and out of for both DP and SJC. The only negative we experienced was getting in late to find the main parking lot full so...

My associates and I recently attended a business luncheon meeting here and had an opportunity to tour the property. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and have an ocean view. The outdoor amenities which include a fire pit, pool/spa, and sport court make for an excellent experience for the entire family. The rooms were quite spacious, included everything you could possibly...

I stay in Residence Inns often, and this one was fine. The rooms were very clean and the bedrooms were spacious. The living room/kitchen was fine, but not quite as "homey" as most of the "R I" hotels I have stayed in. This would be an excellent hotel for someone in the area on business. The location is very convenient...

What a well managed and cared for hotel! Everything was clean and consistent. Ease of check in was amazing and they will accommodate you early if at all possible.

I was traveling with approximately 30 other coworkers for a week long training. It was the perfect location for everyone to socialize and relax after a long day.

The property is located on a hillside offering suites with nice views of the surrounding hills and the distant ocean. The comfortable beds and bath are nicely updated with all necessary amenities.

Hotel maintenance and front desk responsiveness issues. Plus, besides the $380 for two nights and a $100 deposit, they also charged $110 erroneously. Very average for a Residence Inn. Front desk is run by young people (every time we were there in 3 days) who are generally inept and inefficient. Not a good stay.

I frequently stay in Residence Inns, as the rooms are always similar in layout (I really like their studios, which have full kitchens, which is great for people traveling with families). They also provide a free breakfast, which kids really seem to enjoy. This RI is very nice- the common areas as well as the rooms are very nicely decorated...
