Checked in here with my family after a long day of driving. We wanted to rest rest a little at the hotel and asked the front desk guy, Kevin, for recommendations for some Chinese food. He had no recommendations so we took a chance and called the nearest place. He ended up asking us how the food was and we...

This was my first stay at this location, which is growing with new homes sprouting in all directions (I remembered driving by this area many years ago, and it was all rural country -...

I have been in this nice hotel during a business trip for a week. Surroundings are not interesting, anyway the hotel is decent, it has a small fitness center and an open pool. I appreciated the stay and also all the hotel personnel was very kind. Wi-fi in the rooms is free, reliable and fast enough. Unfortunately there is no...

This place used to be on the top of my list due to the excellent and friendly staff from the management to the individuals cleaning the rooms. There has been significant turnover as of late making this go from a not too bad place to go if you must be away from home to an average, if that, hotel. The...

Dear Tara K, Thank you for your feedback. As much as we would have loved to keep the old front desk team, it would've not been fair to them if we did not let them grow with the company at other hotels or pursue their personal dreams outside of the industry. I can assure you that, the team that we...

I've stayed here several times before. It's a standard hotel with pleasant staff and clean accommodations. The room I had this time was tired. The vanity in the bathroom had been repaired/rehung and it was not level, and not level by a lot. Toiletries literally rolled off. The carpet in the hallway was loose and presented a trip hazard. My...

This hotel didn't wow us, but it had the essentials mostly well done. I gave it a 4 because it was clean, had a good bed and it was quiet. On the con's side, they had no tea in the room, no free breakfast and their housekeeping performance was a bit erratic (spotty resupply of items) although the room was...

I stayed there for a weekend visiting family in the area. Its Marriott Courtyard and you get what you expect: clean room, comfortable bed, more than enough parking space, and a starbucks plus a breakfast venue across the parking area north.

Great service. Hotel was clean and contemporary. It's in a business park next to a variety of small restaurants including Starbucks and less than a mile away for a larger shopping center with more restaurants and a movie theater. While next to SR241(toll road), it is about 10 miles from I-5 if you take El Torro Road. We purchased the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Cradled by the Saddleback Mountains, the Courtyard Foothill Ranch Irvine East Hotel is an oasis in South Orange County. We're perfectly situated between Lake Forest and Rancho Santa Margarita. Our Foothill Ranch hotel is surrounded by many wilderness parks and yet a short drive away from the elegance of Newport Beach, Corona Del Mar and the coves, eclectic atmosphere and art galleries of Laguna Beach. Back at our hotel, experience our high-tech lobby featuring The Bistro, which serves Starbucks coffee, where you can sit and enjoy a full meal and cocktails in the evening, or grab an appetizer or something light to go. Stay connected with free Wi-Fi and our interactive GoBoard(R) technology, providing relevant, up-to-date news, weather and local information. Guests of our Lake Forest, CA hotel appreciate our smartly-designed rooms that provide the right mix of relaxation and flexible functionality. When downtime arises, soak up the California sun and relax at our outdoor pool and whirlpool. ... more   less
