“High Class Service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2005

This was an excellent hotel! The front desk service was that of a 5 star hotel. To add to this, there were fresh baked cookies every afternoon, a free sand pail and shovel for the kids, a very nice breakfast that had lots of variety and was well stocked, and very nice, clean rooms. The newly renovated rooms included marble countertops in the bathroom, great shower pressure, an above average sized hotel refrigerator, and a nice seating area. Top notch place!!

I hope all Holiday Inn Express hotels meet the same standards as did the one on Pacific Coast Hwy., in Newport Beach Ca. We were pleasantly surprised with the lovely decor and bright, clean rooms at this hotel. The staff was friendly and efficient, the hotel was cozy and quiet, and the complimentary continental breakfast was one of the best I've experienced.

We had originally booked to stay the week of March 19-26 in Laguna Beach, but after one night at an old and highly overated family run operation in Laguna we decided to move. I called the Holiday Inn Express NB via AAA travel guide. A very friendly rep was able to set us up for the remainder of the week at the Newport Beach Holiday Inn Express. The hotel was a treat! It has been recently updated and totally remodeled. The room was spacious enough (for 2 adults 1 teen), and incredibly clean and fresh. The staff went above and beyond in making our stay enjoyable. Marco especially went out of his way to make sure we were having a satisfactory stay. The maid staff was attentive, and our room was refreshed by late morning everyday, so we could return in the afternoon for a rest before venturing out for the evening.

The breakfast area and dinning room were clean and well stocked. The menu items were somewhat limited to cereal, fruit, hardboiled eggs, and yougurt- but it made for a good beginning to the day. Oh yes, the HIE famous cinnamon rolls to were always available during breakfast. The staff saw to it that coffee was available almost 24/7 in the main lobby, and in the late afternoon they had fresh baked cookies for a snack.

The pool, whirlpool and gym were clean and well maintained. In fact our last day in NB I spent at the hotel pool just sunning. It is a wonderful place for vacation. Quiet, and yet warm and friendly. We will be back- and would recommend this place to anyone looking for a get away spot in an otherwise very upscale area. This is a ***** (5 star) hotel in my book. Keep up the great work!

We were given a generously sized room, that was quiet and clean. The towels were abundant and fluffy, and the complimentary breakfast was substantial. The hotel also has a small pool, spa, and workout room. The location is across the street from the beach, and next door to a fun restaurant - Margaritaville. Its also close to a fabulous Italian restaurant - Spaghetti Benders. We stayed there so we could attend the Laguna Pagent of the Masters. The hotel is a very short 10 minute drive from the pagent. It was a comfortable and quiet stay and the management was responsive and professional.
