Positive Reviews

Low-cost rooms and shared facilities praised

The spacious, remodeled rooms with carpet-free flooring, bright decor and flat-screen televisions appealed to guests, who often said they were suitably comfortable and clean for a short stay. Budget-conscious reviewers usually said they got decent bang for their buck as the room rates were competitive in an often pricey neighborhood. There was also praise for the inviting outdoor swimming pool, hot-tub and sun terrace.

Central OC location near airport was popular

Passengers using John Wayne Airport said the location off the Costa Mesa Freeway appealed to them as the terminal was just a short drive away as were central Irvine and Santa Ana. Guests appreciated the proximity of gas stations, convenience stores, places to eat and bus stops. The central location in Orange County made it straightforward to reach Greater Los Angeles attractions, amusement parks, shopping malls, convention centers, golf courses and California beaches. Motorists also said the ample free parking was a bonus.

Easy check-in and pleasant personnel

Travelers spoke highly of the pleasant, helpful and efficient personnel, who often went the extra mile to ensure guests had a good stay. Many guests experienced a smooth check-in.

Negative Reviews

Cleanliness and maintenance issues

Cigarette burns and malfunctioning key-cards were among the maintenance niggles that bothered some visitors. Criticism of cleanliness standards focused on stained bedding and bathrooms that could have been more vigorously cleaned.

Unpopular paid Wi-Fi

Charges for Wi-Fi access left a bad taste in the mouth for many guests, who were surprised that the service wasn’t provided for free. Underwhelming network speeds and coverage were also reported by some users.

Nuisance noises

Certain rooms were reportedly exposed to occasional aircraft and traffic noise from the nearby airport and freeway. Noise from adjoining rooms and hallways sometimes caused an additional nuisance for light sleepers.
