"A peaceful place to stay. Lots to do in the area. Great room, and it was really clean. The motel truck parking couldn't accommodating my 15-ft. U-Haul towing a car on a car dolly; I had to park on the other side of the pool. The attached restaurant had limited hours; it was a bit pricey, but the food was good.2021-06-13"

"The room was clean and spacious, and the bed was comfortable. Nice front desk staff. Breakfast was good and had hot and cold selections, but the eating area was too small. Not a pet-friendly hotel.2015-10-09"

"A wonderful hotel near the O.C. county fairgrounds, and just a 10-minute walk to Pacific Amphitheater. I got a quiet room as requested. It was clean, quiet, and spacious. Excellent hot breakfast. The staff was friendly and paid for a cab to take me to the airport in the morning. Stay here.2017-08-01"
"Convenient location. Nice, clean hotel room. The free wireless Internet was adequate but a little intermittent. I enjoyed the pool, and breakfast was good. Decent sushi restaurant a short walk away.2016-08-06"
"The hotel was clean, and the beds were so comfortable. No microwave in the room, though.2015-10-08"
"Reasonable rates. The hotel room was large, clean, updated, and comfortable. Friendly staff, and they let us check in early. I liked the chandelier and stairs in the lobby. Continental breakfast provided. I'd stay again.2015-08-10"
"The hotel staff was polite and efficient, but the freeway noise was horrendous. No microwave or coffee maker. The toilet and toilet paper were of the lowest quality. The bathroom was clean, but the sink faucet was loose, and the toilet handle had to be held down for a while to make it flush. No breakfast; just a thermos of coffee and powdered creamer on a card table in the lobby. I've stayed here in the past, but it's gone dramatically downhill. Have low expectations.2021-12-13"
"The room was really dirty, and the carpet was a mess. There was mold in the corners of the bathroom. Other guests were loud and screamed at each other. The hotel clerks weren't very nice; the entire staff needed training in people skills. I'll never stay again.2015-07-21"
"This is a beautiful hotel, and the resort atmosphere was perfect. I wish I could have stayed longer and enjoyed all the amenities. The staff was so welcoming and accommodating. I'll be sure to stay here again.2016-06-10"
"We really liked this hotel and were able to stay with our dog. It was quiet even though it was right next to the freeway. The fridge was loud, though, and I had to get up late at night and turn the temperature down to keep the freezer from running continuously. Nice grounds, but the pool area was covered with tree debris, and I wasn't able to take my dog there. Get to the continental breakfast early before the good stuff is gone.2018-08-12"
"The hotel staff accommodated our request for a late checkout.2016-06-16"
"This motel is my go-to place to stay whenever I'm in Orange County. The rooms are clean, the rates are reasonable, and the location is convenient to the places I like to visit. I had to ask for the safe deposit fee to be removed from my bill since I never used it.2021-04-08"
"Everything about my stay at this motel was absolutely perfect.2020-05-07"
"All the motel employees were friendly and great to interact with. There was a cricket in our room, and the housekeeper got her broom and got him off the wall. We left a charger behind, but a clerk called within an hour to get information to mail it to us. Our only complaint was the electrical outlets in the room; the port on the lamp started melting my charger, and the other outlets were loose. Good stay overall.2019-10-26"
"The motel was older and needed a lot of work. There was a gap around the room door, and the room wasn't that clean and needed fresh paint. It was comfortable all in all, and the employees were nice and helpful. The heater and AC didn't work, but they fixed them right away.2017-12-05"
"The room room was clean and quiet; it had a balcony, but it was standing room only. The TV was old and not user-friendly. The staff was attentive, and breakfast was great. Other than the high parking fee, my experience was excellent.2016-07-21"
"Convenient to the highway and Newport Beach. My room request was honored, and the room and bathroom were clean and cozy. Some of the furniture was a little worn. The staff was professional and friendly. I recommend staying here.2015-07-02"

How Do We Define Motel?
To us, motels are smaller lodgings that have rooms you can enter directly from the parking area.
At hotels, on the other hand, you can enter your room only through a hall inside the building.
Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
