I booked this hotel for its proximity to John Wayne Airport and the beach. I called the hotel to request a pick up in their FREE AIRPORT SHUTTLE, and only waited about 10mins. The driver, Tony, was very friendly. Gave lots of recommendations for local eats and things to do. Although i was early, the check in process was quick and smooth. This property is a generation 1 Resi Inn, so you must leave the office to access you room/s, which is easy with the provided property map. My room, a King studio suite, was nicely laid out and pleasantly quiet.The hotel is about 10mins from Newport Beach Pier, maybe $9 Lyft ride... The hotel does provide free breakfast and a managers reception Mon-Wed night with free beer, wine, soft drinks and light appetizers. Will definitely stay again.
My only bad comment, the free airport shuttle starts running at 730a which is inconvenient for early AM flights but its less than $15 to Lyft/Uber to John Wayne Airport.More
