It was a very nice place. It was just out of hearing distance from traffic but dinning and shopping are just minutes away. Staff was personable and professional. The room was clean and very comfortable.

Nothing is wrong with this hotel ... it's just a bit off. The first thing is the truly bizarre room design which has the only sink on the counter next to the TV and right in front of the bed! I was alone so it didn't matter, but if I was with my wife, we had better be on the...

Room was clean and comfortable. I could get to my room easily and felt secure within the environment. The people at the front desk were friendly and efficient. I had no complaints during my stay and it was in an area with everything that I needed close by.

The room was large, cozy and inviting. I had a wonderful time while in the area, and was pleased to be in a nice neighborhood around with many restaurants, and entertainment. The breakfast was great, a fully loaded hot breakfast.

Nice accommodations near our family. It's also a short drive to the coast. Lots of restaurants and shopping nearby. It's convenient to have breakfast offered at the hotel. They have a good selection of food. We would stay here again.

Quiet, breakfast excellent with lots of choices but can add fresh fruits my family love their stay and we will come back at this place again if we will visit Disney and Universal Studio next time. Disney is nearby but not Universal, good if you will use John Wayne airport, Lot's of restaurants to eat during dinner time.
