“Return Visit December 2011 through the Holidays”
Reviewed 24 January 2012

I previously reviewed this hotel in June 2011, and stayed here again through the holidays from about mid December through the first week of January 2012.

As before, this hotel in the Choice Hotel chain is quiet, a great place to de-stress after long work stretches, or for travelers, or seniors just trying to get some peace and quiet away from the grandkids. Not a Party Hotel for the drinking set, but gets plenty of guests who don't mind their absence! Making reservations through the ChoiceHotels.com site worked best for me and was very competitively priced.

The Staff and Manager here go really out of their way to be friendly, efficient and professional - and which makes any stay here a real pleasure. Other hotels I have traveled and stayed with aren't nearly so nice usually - some feel "customer service" ends the moment you check in. By contrast - this Quality Inn & Suites makes you feel at home. On some wintery cold nights the smell of their lobby fireplace wafting through the building reminds you of hotels as they used to be decades ago - but with all the modern amenities you expect these days. The rooms are large, comfortable, very clean and well maintained, the beds are firm and have good heavy blankets - and coffee pots, microwaves and good small refrigerators set it apart really from lesser rated hotels.

Breakfast was great as usual, (though half the time I sleep through it- retirement is good for one thing at least!) but when I do get down to the spacious lobby dining area, the food is consistently hot, varied and tasty -and the line (if you go after 7:30 am) moves quickly. There's also a Chinese restaurant near the lobby that offers room service and has very decent prices for those days you just don't want to leave the room. WiFi is good for laptops and Androids, cell phone reception is good also. There's also a small exercise room on the bottom level next to a hot jacuzzi, one floor down from the very clean pool.

For a home away from home - this Quality Inn & Suites will be on my list of favorites for a long time.

Room Tip: Use the Chain's own website for reservations, ChoiceHotels.com, prices are best that way, and re...

Thank you Quality Inn & Suites very much for making our groups New Years Eve party a success! The staff was very friendly and helpful! The accommodations were very nice and clean. I will be coming back to the area in May for a business meeting and will be staying with them again. I have also encouraged co-workers to stay here as well! Great Job!

I stayed with our group over the holidays. The staff was very pleasant and well organized.
The rooms were clean and comfortable, with plenty of space to move around in. And the breakfast served had plenty of choices for the group.
Enjoyed my stay there and would definetly go back and do it again.

I do a lot of business travel and I havn't seen a staff work as organized and swift yet. The front staff was very busy but the line moved fast and I got my room without a hitch. The room was much better than I expected. For the price I did not expect the number of amenities. I'm just glad they had a coffee machine. One thing I forgot about was the proximity to so meny neat restaurants and things to do. The Spectrum is an upscale mall with just about all you can imagin. This was the second year I'd been here and I look forward to the third or hopefully sooner which looks to be in summer.

Room Tip: John Wayne airport (Orance County SNA) is right next to the 405 freeway. Go south about 5-10 miles...

We had a great time there New Years Eve. We had a group of over 100 people. We had breakfast in the hotel and dinner in their Chinese Restaurant. This is the fourth or fifth time that our group has been there and we are looking forward to going back again next year.

It was a safe, fun and wonderful New Year's Eve Party in the Community Rooms. My sleeping room was clean, smelled good and was very comfortable.

Great way to welcome in the New Year.

Room Tip: Ask for no-smoking if you are a non-smoker

I was the organizer and we had booked about 1/3 of the hotel. They worked with me often to make sure things went well. The front staff was always professional and did what they could to fulfill all our requirements. They even placed my guest near the banquet room so the noise would be kept to only my guest. For the price you would not believe how nice the place is, tasteful decor in the rooms, the lobby beautiful. The breakfast the next day was lovely, even though the hotel had been fully booked the server was great and tried to accommodate everyone best to her supplies. And the location is perfect and easy to find. Plus it has McDonald's next door for those who want a late night nibble. This was our second year having a party and I would recommend this to anyone, even my Mom who also went to the party and had a great time.

Room Tip: I needed a room right across the banquet room for extra party supplies and the front desk was great...
