La Quinta Inn & Suites Irvine Spectrum
Ranked #15 of 22 Hotels in Irvine
Reviewed 15 January 2014

I recently stayed in this hotel for one night as I was only in town for a one day business meeting. Upon my arrival at 1:30am from a delayed flight I was exhausted and glad that the bed and sleeping area was satisfactorily clean and ready for as much sleep as I could fit in before my morning meeting. The bed was comfortable and the room was quiet, despite being on the ground floor with a window looking out into the parking lot.

The bathroom, however, was sub-par. When I got there the toilet seat was up (weird) and there was noticeable dried pee on the outside of the toilet bowl. I covered the seat entirely with multiple layers of toilet paper before squatting to use the toilet. The shower was the kind that is at the same level as the floor with a drain in the floor, I covered the shower floor with a towel and by the time I was finished showering a trail of water went from the "shower" floor to the bathroom door. I ended up getting ready the rest of the morning with my shoes on. I was happy to be leaving only a few hours after checking in and was sad to see how many families with young children were staying in this hotel upon my checkout.

Room Tip: Make sure you have extra towels in your room.

We travel a lot for our daughters volleyball tournaments so we like to stay within our budget. Well we've been staying at La Quinta for many years and it's because they fullfill all our needs. They always have comfortable beds/pillows, have a free decent breakfast, free wifi, free parking. The rooms have always been clean and staff friendly. This La Quinta was all of that and right off the freeway! We will continue to stay with La Quinta as they never disappoint. Prices are always fair so why would we go anywhere else??

I always sleep good when I stay at this La Quinta. Breakfast is also good. I love the historic building. It is close to both the 5 and the 405. The rooms are spacious. Plenty of parking. Internet connection is good. Overall a great hotel and worth the money.

I love this hotel and staying in the silo is a unique experience, I will come back again and again. It is a good value and the location is ideal. If you do stay in the grain silo building, the east side is away from the train tracks and much more quiet.

I lately was a participant in a ride and drive event held at the el toro Marine base Great park. I selected this location as it was the closest to the venue. Upon my arrival I wasn't sure if I had made the right decision but once I checked in it turned out great. The staff was great and extremely helpful, rooms were clean and well maintained. There are ice & vending machines at all floors for convenience. There are facilities within walking distance for getting a bite as well as a few cocktails if you fancy. Gas station is around the corner and the 5 freeway is right next to you and so is the 405. A very convenient location, over all a 10 from 1-10.

Overall a very good value; parking was convenient and free. Breakfast is included but it is a simple continental. If you need protein - visit Knowlwood Restaurant next door for some slightly greasy corned beef hash or other options. If you're into fast food - Jack in the Box is just across the way or Dennys can dish up some of their junk food for you. The key is that you have options nearby. As for the room, I was lucky enough to get a room in the "Silo" building on the ground floor, away from the train tracks. It was peaceful and practically soundproof due to the concrete walls. If you keep your drapes closed, you won't even notice the cars parked outside. The bed is awesomely comfortable - one of the best beds to be found in a reasonably priced inn/hotel. Their TV is top-notch and having a refrigerator and microwave along with a coffee maker was wonderful. Bring your own tea - as they only provide coffee in the room. Bathroom amenities are limited (a bar of soap, shampoo and lotion) but the shower is large. You may feel like you are in an underground bunker due to all of the concrete but the decor is interesting and the room was comfortable. Friends who stayed on the higher floors (away from the tracks) in the silo building (3rd floor) felt the "shakes" from the train so it sounds like the ground floor (away from the tracks) may be the best place to be. Would stay here again!

Room Tip: Request silo building (because it is interesting). However ask for the silo rooms away from the trac...
