“Cheap cheap if you need to be in the area”
Reviewed 6 January 2014

We decided to stay here for two nights because the price was ok and ratings were above average. I agree about the huge rooms - twice normal. Fittings were average, not the cleanest and used. Some stains on carpet. But overall acceptable. The free WiFi works but although it seemed slow it was good enough for email. As we made the booking the search engine (not this one) claimed that they were almost full, but I don't think that was right as on both nights there was plenty of room! Location near Newport Beach and Balboa was great so we spent some time there as there's not really a great deal to do in the area. It is in a quiet street. We have stayed at better motels for less and am tempted to give 2 stars, but that would be unfair as I wouldn't discourage anyone from staying if they need a cheap place here.

Room Tip: Ask for back building.

This was a nice clean hotel with a big room in costa mesa right outside of Newport beach. Reasonably priced . Perfect short drive to the beach and attractions. Room was nice. It had a very small swimming pool. Bed was comfortable and bathroom good. Large TV but had cable problems when I was there. This is a good budget alternative that felt very clean and safe to the large chains and some of the lower end stuff in the neighborhood.

Sorry folks, but the cost of a two night stay approached $100 a night with taxes and fees is a bit excessive for such a basic room.
There is really not much of a swimming pool (more like a wading pool), not even a continental breakfast, parking is tight, very small bathroom (shower head about 5 feet high), wifi did not connect, TV was nice, bed was adequate, it's about 4 miles from the beach, and a stone's throw from the freeway. Nothing in the way of a directory to help you choose restaurants, grocery stores, entertainment, etc. Pretty poor in the voluntary customer service area.
Sure, So. California is where the dollar is king, but this was the cheapest place that I could find near Huntington Beach. So, if you are on a tight budget, this will do; but if you have more resources, I'd say "Look for better".

Cozy Inn offers pretty good deal on the price compare to the other motels around Costa Mesa area. It is very close to fwy 55 and Newport Beach. Huntington Beach is also not too far away due west. There are two two-story complexes and a small swimming pool in between the two complexes of the property. Parking is free and close to the rooms.
The first room I checked into required more staff attention on its situation of unpleasant odor and mosquitoes flying around. This room was located on the 2nd floor of the complex in the back of the lot. I called the front desk and the staff apologized and reassigned a room on the 2nd floor of the front complex that is above the front desk. The room was noticeably better prepared and decorated (granite bathroom counters, newer shower heads, and so forth). The size of both rooms I was in were the same and were quite large. 30-40 inch TV, fridge, hair dryer, coffee maker, and a microwave are available. The hallway to the rooms in 2nd floor were renovating, so the bare concrete floor was showing. Also, the AC waste water drips directly onto a cup in the hallway which was not a beautiful sight when all the cups from different rooms were overflowing.
In general, Cozy Inn is just an average motel that provide good rates per night in this area and have staff who care for their quests. I am sure that their slow upgrades in the rooms and outside appearance will improve our experience in the next time stay. I would recommend Cozy Inn to you if you wish to save money on your stay.

I was looking for a cheap place to stay while attending a conference and chose Cozy Inn because I saw some good reviews here. The room was really clean (not a speck of dust on the counter or the tables) which I didn't expect. Of course there were no frills and I had to trek down to the office to get shampoo when I wanted to wash my hair, but the room was very spacious and well worth what I paid.

My wife and I just spent 4 very enjoyable days at the Cozy.Our son lives in Costa Mesa and the Cozy provides us a very clean , well priced , quiet , relatively spacious and well located lodging when we visit. All in all..for the price..it's tough to beat the Cozy for a SoCal extended or short trem visit.JWM
