The only word we can say is "EXCELLENT" The room, gym, food and last but not least the staff especially the night manager were the GREATEST!!! If or when we decide to take a vacation, there's the hotel we will stay in.

Our overall stay was good but on a daily basis, we had issues with the hot water in the shower. The temperature was either too cold or too hot with little ability to control it. The room was large and clean.

This hotel is in an excellent location in South Orange County. Easy access to the freeway. Very close to many food choices. Irvine Spectrum and the El Toro Mall are only a couple miles away. The hotel also has lots of parking too. I highly recommend this hotel!

Was looking for a place to stay for a business trip and saw a special price offer, was skeptical about the place because the offer was so good, and was then very pleasantly surprised, great location for business in Irvine, great room and staff, full breakfast with Chef and assistant in attendance, great wireless connection, will be staying here regularly.

Thank you so much for sharing your experience with us. We appreciate you letting us know that breakfast took a little long to get through the line. Unfortunately, we were not aware that we would have a team staying with us, as all the reservations were booked individually through a third party site. When we have large groups or teams...

Best Western has always been my first choice of accommodation for more than 25 years. This hotel is the best one I ever have. The breakfast is good with a chef taking an order. Room is combatable and spacious.
