“Vacation Stay”
Reviewed 6 August 2007

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.

We chose this hotel because of free parking and convenient location for visiting relatives over the Christmas holiday season. Our first and lasting impression of this property, though, was not a good one. When we arrived at the front desk to check in, there was one of those yellow commercial mop/buckets just sitting there in front of the counter....no maintenance people to be seen. The woman at the front desk couldn't see over the counter, so I mentioned it to her. She didn't seem too concerned about it, just responding that "Jerry" must have left it there. And, then after that, it took 3 trys to get us checked into a room. The key cards (they made us 2 different sets, so we had to try twice) didn't work on the first door, the second room was a very long hike around to the back of the property and definitely had a smoky odor even though the hotel is now all nonsmoking, and then finally the third room was just fine.

Because Residence Inns are geared toward long-term stays, the full kitchenette and morning breakfast were not really perks that we were interested in. The rooms however are adequate and of the same caliber and layout of other Residence Inns we have seen. But what is lacking for the overnight traveler are bathroom toiletries (only soap and shampoo offered), no luggage rack in the closet, make your own ice in the noisy frig, etc. The beds were nice, though.....very comfortable with soft pillows. The bathroom just ordinary, with a long counter and sink outside the tub/toilet room. With a weekend rate of only $94 in December, we thought the room was a very good value. Too bad there was so much trouble checking in. But given that many of the hotels in the area can be almost twice as expensive and don't offer free parking, we might consider trying this property again sometime in the future, primarily because of its proximity to our relatives' home.

  • Liked — Free, convenient parking
  • Disliked — Too many problems at check-in

What can I say....This hotel is great! The rooms are big - after all - it is a Residence Inn with full kitchenette and sitting area. It seemed very clean. The breakfast (eggs/fruit/cereal/etc) is hearty enough and the evening snacks (bbq hamburgers/hotdogs) and drinks (beer/wine/pop) are a nice way to unwind...btw...they are free.

I must warn you that the front desk help isn't the best - lots of turnover it seems - and they don't have any handle of customer service. If you run into a problem like I did, just breathe, hold your emotion, and call the management the next morning -- then issue your complaint. If you unload on the afternoon staff, they could literally care less if an atomic bomb went off in your room. BUT, the management staff will.

Enjoy your stay - the pool looked great, the pingpong table was a hit, and the work out room was small but did the trick.

This place was awful. Some of the staff were friendly but some were incompetent and unhelpful. The rooms had a definite odor. There is loud construction going on next door. This was a disappointing stay.

From the professional check in to the fast and easy checkout... perfection! Room was clean and bright, no funny smells.

Housekeeping efficient and nice. Free breakfast and parking were nice, and saved us a lot over other local hotels.

Bedding was sumptious and comfy, and had no funny problems.

Pool was clean and well-maintained, hallways were clean.

Convenient to the 405 and 55 freeways (vital arteries for this area).

This is the first time we stayed in Irvine. We helped our daughter move into University of Irvine.

The Residence Inn Irvine was a fantastic place to stay at. The Front Desk was very courteous and informed.

The room was great. It was very roomy. One of the biggest we have ever stayed at. It had a separate kitchen and living room. It was very clean and neat.

The breakfast buffet was great. Eggs, potato's, bagels, toast, muffins, danish, cereal, french toast, and make your own waffles.

We will definetely stay here again.
