“Good size for family of 5”
Reviewed 3 March 2014

We stayed at this hotel last month... we were looking for a place half-way between Dana Point (whale watching) and Disneyland. Irvine fit the bill. The room was nicely sized with a modern sort-of decor. The beds were really comfortable and my son had a sofa bed that was separately by a half-wall... this sort of broke up the space and that was nice. The pool is small but we knew we were headed to the Disneyland Hotel the next day so it didn't really matter to us. Breakfast was the standard fare but it did the job and got us on the road without having to make another stop. I thought it was an excellent value for a family of 5... it is sometimes hard to find a room for a family of 5; I thought this was the best value of the trip... of course, we were headed to Disney the next day, but still... :) P.S. Drive to Disney was less than 20 minutes on a Sunday morning.

The shuttle takes about 5 minutes to get to the airport. The service from the concierge was great. I had a great experience. The food was free of charge, the parking was free of charge and at other hotels they charge for these amenities. The hotel/room was very clean. I would recommend this hotel and I will be staying here in the future.

Was just looking for a decent place to stay that didn't break the bank for the Huntington Beach Half Marathon. The time to get to PCH was very quick. Wife loved the modern decor. Separate toilet/shower area were nice. Having a partial wall at the desk that separated the "living area" from the bed also helped break up the room. I crashed earlier than the wife so she was able to watch TV while I slept with very little noise/distraction on my end. Only small issues were the location of garbage cans being in the bathrooms. I had to move one out to the area by the fridge/microwave because I was tired of walking back and forth. The filter basket was missing from the coffee maker, but since I drink tea, it still worked for what I needed. The glass shower door seemed to leak water on the floor and it appeared to be fully closed. Make sure you have good towel coverage on the floor. Small issues for what can normally be found at other hotels. We didn't use the fitness center, pool or eat the breakfast so I can't comment on those. Wife would stay here again for sure.

I stayed at the SpringHill Suites Irvine for a 3-day/night stretch recently, and found many things to like about it, but also some aspects that weren't so pleasant. That said, I'd at least consider staying here again on a trip out to the area.

Pros:
- Great location - close to the airport but not overloaded with flight noise.
- Good value for the money - well furnished modern rooms for a reasonable price.
- Breakfast was quite good, probably one of the best complimentary breakfasts I've had at a hotel, and sadly I've eaten a number of them. Real eggs (powdered eggs must have been made by the devil), lots of fruit, cold cuts, sausages, cereals, pastries, and the coffee is pretty good!
- Great service - the staff was always pleasant and helpful whenever I needed them, and unobtrusive when I didn't.

Cons:
- This may be a hotel thing or a western U.S. thing, but it seems as if there is no such thing as cold water out of a faucet. Lukewarm and hot are the only options, so get ice if you need a colder drink of water.
- The shower leaked in multiple places - and this is due to the design of the shower, there are gaps everywhere that let water out onto the floor, soaking anything sitting there.
- The hotel is only three years old, but the rooms show age older than that - stains on the carpets, stains on the furniture, wear marks everywhere, discoloration of mirrors, and so on.
- Mold starting to grow on the air conditioner vents - I've seen this at other hotels, but it's not a good thing. I'm not allergic or sensitive to it, but I can imagine problems for people who are.

Overall, the hotel is nice - they trumpet the fact that it is a 3-year old hotel, which is great, but it is already showing its age in a number of places. A few more years down the road and the ranking could drop precipitously. I will still consider it strongly for my next visit - the breakfast was that good!

Thanks for reading - if you have any questions, feel free to reach out!

Stayed her for a Sat/Sun night stay and enjoyed our stay. Hotel is 4 years old and has a modern decor - check out the pictures already posted by others. We had a 2 Queen + sofa room, with a large walk-in closet, an isolation room (toilet & sink), and a shower (very high showerhead)/sink room. Glass partition in front of desk separated the beds and the sitting area, so it gave a little privacy between the areas. Small fridge & microwave. Breakfast is standard Springhill Suites style: scrambled eggs, sausage, breads, cereals, and various drinks. The waffle makers came out for the Sunday breakfast; fruit, ham & cheeses came out on Monday morning. 2 computers and a printer were just outside the breakfast area.

This is the nicest SpringHill Suites I have ever stayed in. The hotel is only 4 years old, and the decor is terrific. The rooms are well designed with a great work space, and a sofa that is actually comfortable. The toilet is seperate from the shower. And each room has a small refrigerator and microwave. There is a small snack shop in the lobby area. The breakfast was typical but also included sliced cheeses and meats. The location is great if you are flying in or out of John Wayne Airport. It will take only 10 minutes or so to get to the hotel, and if the freeways are jammed you can take surface streets. There is an indoor pool which I didn't use, but looked perfectly fine.

This location is easy to find, with great access to the airport. The hotel itself is new, with clean and modern rooms. Breakfast is included as well. I'd recommend SpringHill to anyone passing through for a night or staying in the area for a few days.
