We loved our 3 night stay at the Holiday Inn. The free breakfast was wonderful, as was the free drink coupons that gave us a free drink each night of our stay. The staff was very nice, and the room was clean. Great pool, our kids had the pool to themselves. Would definitely stay here again!

We spent a week here on vacation the first week of April. When we checked in, our room wasn't ready and we had to wait until 6pm to check in even though its supposed to be 4pm. We got a non-smoking room even when we requested smoking. The first few nights were fine. Then they got a cheerleading convention in town and all hours of the night there was screaming in the hallways and doors opening and closing. The walls are thin and you could hear it all. After calling the front desk numerous times, we ended up with very little sleep. The breakfast was wonderful. The housekeeper always moved our stuff around the room...and we did not like that. The pool was nice. Overall, it was ok..but not likely that we would stay here again. For the price, we could do better.

We were on a whistle stop tour of Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Grand Canyon and stayed here on our first night after a long flight from England. The hotel staff were friendly, quick and eager to please and that included everyone from the receptionist to the porter to the bar staff to the breakfast waiters.
Only had breakfast in the hotel and it consisted of a plentiful warm buffet.

Overall excellent value, clean and highly recommended. Well worth a visit. Even for someone who had been on a plane for 12 hours the hotel was easy to find as it was just off the freeway.

Next time we are in LA we will go back to this hotel

Stayed two nights while visiting Disneyland over Veteran's Day weekend. Crowds at D-land were terrible, but this Holiday Inn provided a nice overnight refuge from the maddening crowd at a great price. With our Entertainment Card received a $63 per night rate that included a full hot breakfast. Room was spacious and clean & included a refrigerator & microwave. Only negatives were two burnt out light bulbs in the room & the king size bed mattress was a little old & saggy. However, we slept well due to wearing ourselves out at Disneyland. Would definitely stay there again if we can get the great rate. Hotel staff was friendly.

For me, as someone who has to stay frequently in this area one night per stay (on my own dime), this is the "Goldilocks" hotel, especially if I'm pressed for time.

The check in desk is very efficient. Waits are minimal most of the time. Check out (at least if you're Priority Club, which is free to join) is even more efficient, since they leave you your statement under your door overnight and you thus only need to drop your key as you leave.

The rooms and facilities are clean and nice (when they aren't refurbishing, which they have been on several occasions in the past year). Problems are resolved in reasonable time. The front desk staff is very friendly.

The breakfast is a free buffet typically consisting of srambled eggs, potatoes, bacon, french toast, several kinds of fruit, cereal, milk, juices. (But there's no toaster for self-toasting.) It's in a full restaurant, so you can order (paid) breakfast too.

The restaurant is Italian themed but has a variety of dishes available, and better quality in my opinion than many other midline hotel restaurants. I particularly like the linguini with clams and the house salad with raspberry vinegarette dressing (more than their ceasar salad).

There is also a mini-fridge and microwave in each room.

There are pay movies on the TV but also all the main local channels and a decent selection of cable channels, including HBO and Starz. Some of the cable channels (A&E, TNT, etc) are East Coast feeds.

There are poolside rooms (with a door from your room straight out to the outdoor pool area) if you want that.

Wireless internet access is free and requires no passwords or login, it just works.

The location is right off the 55 freeway, close to the SNA airport. (It's not quite in the Disneyland area, but rather a central OC location if there's a variety of things you want to do in different parts of OC, or just if you need to be in that area near the John Wayne airport.)
