We stayed here with our wedding party. Meggan the sales manager was amazing!! She gave exceptional service to my wife and I. She helped us work out a price and had her team there to wish us well on our wedding day. This service will not only bring me back to costa mesa, but will keep me as a holiday inn customer everywhere. I want to thank meggan and her team at costa mesa for the fantastic job they did!!!

This property was situated right off HWY 55 for an easy on and off. The property was clean and the staff was very personable. Upon Check-In, I was greeted by Rene. He made check-in very easy and was helpful with the questions I asked. We will definitely be back.

The Holiday Inn Express Costa Mesa is clean, quiet, good amenities (Keurigs in room, frig, microwave, pool, etc.), convenient to Newport Beach, and has an excellent staff. Would definitely stay here again for the price.

Simple in decor, furnishings and layout, the Holiday Inn is a good base for business in Costa Mesa or pleasure in nearby Newport Beach. Midway between John Wayne Airport and Newport Beach, it's well located although not much going on in the immediate neighborhood. You'll need a car to get around but there's free underground parking. Rooms are simple, clean, and comfortable. The new beds are a bit on the soft side. There's a bare bones fitness room and tiny outdoor pool. Self serve free breakfast is ample with eggs, breakfast meat, pancakes, and sinfully delicious cinnamon rolls. Friendly and helpful staff make for a pleasant stay.

Dear gwwyjjliu,
Thank you so much for a detailed recount of our hotel and services. We do have new mattresses, air conditioners and carpet in all our guest rooms.
Our brand standard Cinnamon Rolls are a big hit with our guests.
We hope to see you on your next visit to the area.
Sincerely,
R Dalgado
