My wife and I were visiting Orange County to celebrate her birthday for a week. I selected a 3-star hotel on Hotwire near Orange Couny airport, which turned out to be La Quinta. I e-mailed the hotel general manager, Nicole, a few days before our visit and requested a non-smoking room with a queen/king bed in a quiet area. I also mentioned that we were going to celebrate the birthday and that I planned to write a review for Tripadvisor. She responded quickly, made sure she understood my requests correctly, and asked my wife's name. We ended up with a fantastic upgraded room with a birthday card for my wife and lots of cookie/snack goodies. Keep in mind that this is a hotel without a restaurant, so these goodies had to be purchased. This was a very pleasant surprise for my wife.
The hotel is in a perfect location for visiting Orange County, right off the 55 Freeway. It is a mile away from The District, which has great restaurants and lots of stores. The room was huge with a refrigerator which we put to good use. We met Nicole who was very pleasant and eager to please. The workout room, which I used twice, is very functional. Breakfast, which is included, is nothing fancy but very pleasant with freshly made Belgian waffles. Parking is plentiful and free - it seems like most hotels charge now for parking which I try to avoid.
I would highly recommend this hotel, which is correctly rated as 3-star, but great value. I compared prices quite a bit before selecting this hotel and it was by far the best deal. Don't stay here if you want a fancy hotel, but if you are looking for a pleasant stay at a great price, stay here.
