The hotel is at one end of a parking lot with several businesses, including some very good restaurants (Urban Grill, Thai Garden, etc.) that are within easy walking distance. The rooms are decent, with a small refrigerator and an uncomfortable pull-out couch. My room overlooked a busy highway. There's a nice sized TV about 8 feet from the bed. Mediocre...

Nice Courtyard hotel. Exactly what you expect from the Courtyard brand of Marriott. Front desk checkin was quick friendly and easy. Rooms were standard courtyard and very clean. Good bath amenities! Staff was helpful on restaurants close by. The only negative of the courtyard brand is no free breakfast. I consider Courtyard and Hampton inn to be equals in price...

Each time I have stayed here I have been impressed with the feeling of "spaciousness." It is very open. The counter staff is always helpful and professional. They have a small convenience store and a large meeting area for socializing and even offers cocktails in the evening. The morning breakfast is ample and tasty! You will enjoy your stay here!

I have stayed at this property before. While the rooms are in need of a renovation, the staff is wonderful. The bistro has a nice assortment of breakfast items. The workout facilities are good and the location is near the highway and shopping area. I would stay here again.

One of the nicest rooms/beds for comfortable and quiet rest we have used. Drawback is we prefer hotels with quick complimentary breakfast. Found this has great little restaurant but more time-consuming and, of course, added cost. Upscale business no-nonsense clientele (not the typical SoCal "family" type), tho sure families are welcome. We've stayed a number of times and rooms never...

The lobby is unique. It has several areas where individuals can sit and talk or where a larger group can gather. The food (and Starbucks coffee) provided by the restaurant is very good and convenient. Front desk folks were friendly and helpful. We requested a room on the top floor away from the elevator and were pleased with the quality...

This pleasant and well-kept Hotel is perfect for the business traveler ... This is not a five star hotel but it is a strong four-star. It is neat and clean with the friendly staff. Parking in the area is safe and secure. Breakfast is typical and that's fine. You will have no trouble at this fine hotel.

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.
