Our first stay at Hampton Inn and we didn't get disappointed. We originally wanted to stay Hilton hotel close to Anaheim, but later decided to move to this area as it was significant cheaper using Hilton points as well as better reviews. It is a bit far from Southern California attraction, very remote and in between cluster of toll roads,...

We travel to Southern ca to visit family. We have found that the Hampton In is an ideal place for us to stay. It is easy access to the freeway and to shopping and to restaurants. The breakfast is always good so we would recommend this Hotel for anyone staying in Orange county

Hotel is clean, bed was comfortable, bathroom was modern. The breakfast is a typical Hampton Inn breakfast, eggs, sausage, waffles, cereal, yogurt,coffee, and juice. Didn't make it to the pool but from the window looked very clean. Will stay again.

Stayed 3 nights during a recent business trip to the OC. Typical no frills Hampton property in a very quiet OC suburb. Only drawback was the drive to and from Irvine which involved using the toll road (CA 241). Great value for your hotel dollar when compared to other Hilton hotels.

High value for the quality of the room cleanliness and the complimentary breakfast. I'm a regular traveler and by far this hotel stay was one of the worst experiences I've seen. That hotel branch needs a major renovation and a better hygienic and food quality!
