“Very small rooms in concrete building”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 August 2014 via mobile

Stayed here one night. Had to stay in a room with 1 double bed. It was my hubby and I. We were directed next door to a cement building. It was a very cool building but rooms were very small. The desk clerk did let us know that we would hear a train. We were right next to train tracks and they did pass by about every 10-15 min or so. Very small room. No closet. One small window. Pool was average, right in front of breakfast area. Waffles, cereal and coffee for breakfast. Room was clean and location is right off 5 freeway.

Have stayed many times in La Quinta hotels. Mostly in Texas and have found them excellent in their value. But this La Quinta was noisey and the bath and beds were not clean, Hair in tub and beds. Hotel is near freeway which accounts for the noise, but the housekeeping is not forgivable. Outside around the hotel was not well kept either. trash was around the walkways to the hotel rooms. breakfast offering was minimal for a La Quinta. Seating for morre than two was not available. This La Quinta is in bad shape. when we complained at front desk, we had to stand in line behind other complainers. A very dissapointing and bad experience.

Train sitch is the worst. Incredibly loud throughout the entire night. Not cool. The bean mill feels like rundown dorm rooms. Walls are thin and the staffs isn't that forgiving when discussing the cancellation policies. If he were more apologetic or understanding, i would maybe given 2 dots.

If you like sleep, don't stay here.

it is a hotel in ok condition. Hotel is a bit dated and pool is 2 stars at best. Our room was fine but some friends had mold in their bathrooms.
The positives include the hotel staff. All were very professional and helpful in a timely manner. It was nice to be close to Great Park for sports tournament but hotel is right next to the train tracks. You hear train and train whistle a couple of times through the night.
Continental breakfast in the morning was standard and included in the price.

If you like trains and great rates with a 24-hour Denny's available, this is perfect. Much preferred over the high-rate places near the airport. It is centrally located between the airport and the Irvine Spectrum so there is plenty to do!

I have been traveling to Irvine for 4 years on business and always wondered what the strange grey building was that was sitting next to the railroad tracks. On my last trip, a friend suggested the LaQuinta Inn and I reserved two rooms for two nights. When we arrived, it was the strange gray building. They had taken a building was storage silos for Lime Beans, back in the 1940s and converted it to a hotel, building right out to the silo walls. What a great idea. I am not the flashy hotel type and we immediately fell in love with this destination. We stayed on the east side of the hotel, away from the train tracks. I asked some others if the train bothered them and they said that after a few went by, they didn't seem to hear them anymore. Kids, however, would love it. Breakfast was available and it was self serve and fresh. If you like rustic charm, this is vintage Irvine and it's perfect. We'll be back again and again.

Avoid it at any cost!
It is right next train tracks, so even noise cancelling headphones wouldn't help, since everything that is holding this miserable building together starts to tremble.
There is no room service, the neighborhood is shady, and the coffee maker is screwed to the wall next to toilet.
