Nice, but plenty of room for improvement.
Reviewed 1 week ago

The room was nicely furnished and spacious, with a comfy bed. I also really appreciated the free parking and wi-fi.

On the down side, the front desk staff, who were great in person, could use some customer service training on phones. Called the front desk twice and got incorrect information or they were just plain not helpful or very friendly.

I did have safety issues as well. Call me clumsy, but I ran into an outward opening door in the middle of the night and bruised my cheek and eye. This could've easily been avoided by having some sort of night light option.

My room also had a jet tub, which sounded like a great thing, but the side of it was so high, that even at 5'10", with longer than average legs, the top of it still hit above my knee. So, the first time I showered, I slipped and fell trying to get out, leaving a really nasty bruise about the size of an orange on the inside of my leg. Again, easily avoidable by having some sort of bar to grab onto, or even just a simple non-slip matt or grip in the tub.

Easy access from Orange County Airport ( John Wayne). Nice spacious, well appointed room within minutes from the airport. The pool and spa were both handicap friendly. Friendly bar with reasonably priced happy hour drinks and wine.

A Traditionally Furnished hotel in the heart of Southern CA!
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

This is our second stay here, and it is just as delightful as the first. As an older couple in our early 60's we really appreciate the tradition decor of the hotel. it has a warmth about it rarely found in newer hotels. Everything feels very fresh and clean, and it is obvious that regular updates are made to the rooms. The rooms are spacious, the price is right, the service is friendly, and the included breakfast is good. At some point soon, however, major updates will likely need to be made, as the furniture is wearing and the color scheme is outdated. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Comfortable rooms, friendly staff

I was pleasantly surprised by the spacious room and rustic look of wooden furniture. Coffee machine, small fridge and enough cupboard space. The bathtub/shower is one.
Breakfast is basic but enough with a fruit section, cereals, tortillas, toast, scrambled eggs and bacon, potatoes and pancakes.

Highly recommend and super convenient location
