Stayed there one night. It was a shame because this was a big, well fitted, spotless room, extremely comfortable. Friendly helpful staff. Excellent location. Would stay there again without hesitation. Well done!

My wife and I stayed at this hotel for four nights during the third week of November 2008. We had a good stay. I decided on this hotel because (1) it was pretty new, (2) I got a good price because of a friends and family discount, (3) you don't have to pay for parking, (4) it's right off of the 405 and also a close drive to Newport Beach, and (5) free breakfast every morning.

Check-in was efficient, and as requested, we were given a top-floor room. The room was fairly clean except for some stray hairs on the bed sheets. The view was unimpressive, as we just looked at a nearby apartment building and the smoggy sky over Santa Ana.

Breakfast was delicious and, best of all, complimentary. The waffle maker is a great idea, but the batter was pretty disgusting. However, after 4 mornings, we were pretty tired of the selection.

Service was consistent and up to Marriot standards.

The hotel was undergoing construction when we were there. We stayed in one of the newly renovated rooms - and it was quite nice.

I would (and probably will) stay here again.

Stayed their 7 nights in early July. This is a good hotel. New and clean. The staff was very nice and helpful. Parking is FREE. There are a couple of restaurants within walking distance of the hotel, but you will need a car if you want to get around the OC.

Check-in was efficient, our one-bedroom suite was comfortable and clean. The pool area is nice, with a nice seating area with a fire pit. The fitness room is small but typical of a RI. The hotel also has a basketball court, a mini-tennis court, and ping pong. The breakfast and dinner were standard RI fare. But this one has free beer and wine. The area around the hotel appeared safe. We had no problems with the hotel or staff our entire stay. It was a good vacation.

  • Liked — Clean large rooms, good AC. It's also very near JW airport (SNA)
  • Disliked — Need a car to get to all of the tourist spots.

I stayed at this Residence Inn while in town for a wedding in late May. The hotel is fairly close to the airport, but far enough away that you don't hear the airport noise. It is near a couple office buildings and directly next to an apartment complex. There is a Souplantation across the parking lot. The rooms are large enough. I had a king bed, and there was a nice sized living area and kitchenette. The bathroom was small, but there was a nice sized dressing area and closet. They offered happy hour and appetizers downstairs during the week, though I didn't attend any of the events. There was free wired internet, as well. They offer complimentary breakfast in the morning with standard continental fare, and there is a mini convenience store off the check in desk. The staff I encountered was very friendly, from check in to maid service. I didn't try out the outdoor pool, but it looked to be well kept. Overall, consistent with Marriott standards and no disappointments.

Nice enough but what sets a hotel apart is the staff/mgmt. I had issues with both. There was loud noise that kept waking up my kids coming from neighboring room. If you are business traveler who doesn't care about sleep, I guess this is the place for you. The suites are clean. However, if you care about sleep and you have full days planned at disneyland and you want a good nights rest, this is not the place for you. Management did not care about my concerns. We requested a relocation and we were denied. They did not modify our bill in any way and we will never stay here again. Other residence inns of Marriott maybe, but not this one until they change the management and staff.

Visited while on vacation for four days. Although a few items in the room were not working upon arrival, the staff cheerfully fixed everything immediately. Great breakfast layout for feasters and healthy eaters alike. Used the workout room (elipticals, tread mills and a bike) everyday. Seemed popular with business folks, families and pets. Would definitely stay there again.

Lovely perks. Nice happy hour with food and drinks. Room was very clean. Check in was not a problem at all. Room was large with many things I have never seen in a regular hotel room. I'm already planning another business trip stay at the same location for July.
