I didn't like much. My experience was horrible here. We were lied to by the staff. Due to their lies, we ended up stranded at the event we were attending. We booked this hotel specifically for the free shuttle, and even made sure of times and venue location that it would all work out. Well, it didn't and the customer service desk did NOTHING to resolve. What an awful experience! I will never stay there again!
Likes: free parking, clean rooms, kind staff Internet did not work
The staff are always friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet is great. The beds are comfortable. The place is generally quite cozy, as well as clean. The USB outlets are a nice modern touch. Pretty much my only complaint is that the hotel is very close to the John Wayne Airport and you get woken up promptly at 7am by the first departing flights, which continue to make noise until around 11pm. Otherwise the hotel is nice and quiet.
Reliable excellent service and accommodations! We are always impressed with our experience at Ayres!
I'm a Pastor and I asked for a 1pm checkout due to a wedding ceremony I was performing in Huntington Beach at 4pm. Initially I was told no problem. I called on Saturday morning to confirm and my request was denied. Staff did not apologize, offer any solutions and I was very disappointed.
The room was very large and very comfortable. The facilities were very clean and aesthetically pleasing, although I was unable to spend much time there due to a business conference I was attending. I read good things about the restaurant, however, was unable to check it out for the same reasons. I was given the opportunity to check-in before noon and to request additional towels, both of which I selected. However, upon arrival I was told that I was unable to check-in early AND that, even if possible, it would cost an additional $40. Furthermore, I did not receive additional towels. So, my question became, why even offer these things if you're not going to provide them upon request.
I was a beautiful place to stay, clean and the staff was great. I would surely go back and stay longer for pleasure this time!!!!!
liked the restaurant in the courtyard There were large bugs in our bathroom -- unacceptable
Everything about the hotel was really really good. It is such a good value for the money. The beds were very comfortable the room was very clean and the staff was very friendly wouldn't hesitate to stay there again anytime.
TOO LARGE THROUGHT IT WAS A BOUTIQU
I had a problem with another room being extremely loud and disruptive,, the front desk and security took care of the situation, quickly. Also, the GM comped my valet charges...still not what I expected from a hotel like this.
Good hotel, excellent location. Clean and comfortable. The music in the lobby is a bit loud.
The hotel is centrally located and six minutes from the airport, making it a great choice if you've an early morning departure or late night arrival. Our room was very quiet. The Marketplace was great for snacks and provided a good selection of tasty foods. The staff was friendly and the bed comfortable. The parking fee of $22-24 per night seems excessive for a suburb like Irvine which is pretty much made of concrete, shopping malls and parking lots. The sink drain didn't work properly, one of my pet peeves in a hotel in any price category and unexpected in this type of hotel.
I stayed a long weekend here with my friend and the lovely people at hotel Irvine really made us feel like welcome guests! From the complimentary bikes, to the Friday night movie on the lawn, to the friendly and delightful staff, every minute here was relaxing and stress-free. My friend has severe food allergies which the staff graciously and professionally worked arround for her. It really meant a lot to be able to enjoy my mini-vacation knowing that everything we needed was being taken care of. Thank you so much!
Comfort No room service Weird shower stall that is made so its hard to reach handles
Impressive, grand entry, airily quick check-in, comfortable beds, clean shower Music at the bar was so loud you couldn't hold a conversation. In addition the check-in attendant never told me details, such check-out time or that a continental breakfast was included ( I had to ask the next morning). They seemed rushed and ready for the next customer. Another issue was non-smoking on a designated non-smoking floor. I smelled smoke as I slept and saw butts on the carpet in the hallway. Lastly, breakfast was limited to toast, cold cereal, yogurt, and hard-boiled eggs.
Pool was great! Lots of space and fun games around the pool. Rooms were nice, good breakfast and fun bar/lounge
The grounds, the staff was friendly and helpful, bed was comfy, pool area and 24 hour marketplace were very nice. Paying for parking, odd odor on the different floors, no cold water, half-closed shower door.
Loved the market place and the Dj at the bar in the evenings!
I liked the pool, room size, little market downstairs with reasonable prices, location to where I was going and the feel of the hotel. There is a mini refrigerator that you can fill up. I like the concept, instead of an overpriced minibar. The front desk was confused as to when breakfast ended. (We were told 8am which is ridiculous, but it was actually 9:30.) we missed a few days due to thinking we missed it. The carpet and little features could be updated, but for the most part it was clean. We would stay again.
We loved our room with a view. Even though the hotel was busy with dance competition and softball teams, our room was quiet and service was great. We will definitely be back soon!
Close to Newport restaurants Found used silverware outside door at 4pm checkin. At 11:30pm silverware still there. Found used eyelashes on sink at checkin. No bathtub. Disappointed stay for the $220 nite rate
Pool area not cleaned up well....needs facelift badly! Bar Mitzvah at hotel was noisy at night. Expensive self-parking ($27 per day) and "resort fee" ($25 per day) adds significant cost to room.
Great gym and pools. Very nice outdoor setting. Parking costs additional $35/ day. Rooms are clean but feel old and cheap. They add 20% tip to the bill for any service provided...food.
The room was very nice and modern. Valet parking efficient. The resort fee was an unnecessary and unreasonable charge. The Friday night brunch is $50 apiece and worth under $20. They served dried our turkey breast at the carving station that had to be covered in gravey. The beef chunks were very tough. Don't eat there. Bring snacks and drinks. A bottle of beer is $4.50 the resort store. Poolside service is only during summer. This is Southern California. Summer is year around.
The water slide for kids was pretty cool and the food was good, although pricy. Self parking is really far from the rooms. Plus you have to walk up a steep hill to get from the parking to your room. They don't have ramps to some of the areas. Had to carry out stroller down to the pool with the slide. The walls in rooms are really thin. Our room was next to the maid service room so pretty much the whole nights we would hear door slamming, people talking and carts being moved around. On our last night we could hear a couple arguing in the next room for like an hour. We could literally hear every word. We had two small children with us so all the noise would wake them up. Pictures on the web look nice but in real life the hotel is not even close to it. The lobby is the only nice area in the hotel.
Nothing The towels were cheap, resort and valet fees were excessive. I felt like I was staying in the holiday inn. Will never go back.
Not much See above
Gorgeous landscape and places to relax. Kids at adult only pool!
The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The grounds were very nice with lots of places to sit and enjoy them. They have concerts on Friday night and they are quite loud, we were not notified they would be going on. I think that guest should be advised when they make their resevations.
The staff are very helpful and cheerful. Bar area is limited and subject to a lot of noise from families passing through or as part of a large concert crowd that can dominate the whole area at weekends. The resort is more than walking distance to most other shopping or restaurant areas or the beach. No quiet area for a drink and conversation.
Very quiet and relaxing. The grounds are well kept, the room was very spacious. There are a lot of activities and the location of the hotel is great, you can drive to the beach in 5 minutes, fashion island is next door and Sherman's gardens are just down the road. Parking is expensive ($25/day) and the lot is a bit of a hike from the hotel depending on which room you have.
Maybe decor needs updating
Much better than the Ritz @ Laguna Nigel or Montage. Outstanding service
EVERYTHING was Amazing. The view, service, room service, amenities and the room was perferct We loved everything
The place is awesome and we really enjoyed it The place is 5stars but the service and the employees are 0 stare
the views and the bungalow room was great food service (both in room and at the pool lunch) was slow, inaccurate and not as expected. although the food quality was very good.
Beautiful resort! Loved our room. Food was amazing! Love the boutique on site. Front desk was great. Had an early check in. Staff overall was very slow and not to experienced when it came to bellman and room service. Every time we called for something we sat on hold for a period of time. Then when we left the resort i couldn't see out of my car windows. I had hard water spots all over my beautiful clean mercedes. The sprinklers covered my car and when i asked the valet to help with windex they looked at me like I was crazy.
The staff is VERY sweet and helpful. Great location. Valets were SO SWEET! Extremely clean. My ONLY problem was I reserved TWO DOUBLE BEDS. I brought my 15 year old daughter and her best friend For a one night getaway. I received an am txt that our room would be ready at 4pm.. So we went to fashion island for fun lunch at Lemonade And some shopping. When we went to check in.. At 4pm.. I was told That they had over sold and our room had one king bed. In my reservation I specified THREE PEOPLE! I feel like I got bumped cuz I reserved thru kayak... Paid less. They brought up a HUGE rollaway That took up half the room. We couldn't even make room for it.. So we all 3 slept in one bed. Not the end of the world.. But I would have appreciated better communication. Beautiful hotel and we had a lot of fun.
Staff was amazing and nice. But under trained and need more knowledge on processes Messed up our room and what was going on and got charged for parking 2 types in1 day.
Fantastic location.Great value for money.Very clean.Great pool and jacuzzis.Will definitely be back!Even a Starbucks!And a great bar.Fire pits at night.Sunset was incredible to top off a great getaway.10/10.
Visiting a family member in hospital. Your Marriott staff could not have been more accommodating. The Concierge lounge was perfect. I can not think of anything
It was close to malls and movies. Not the best views in Newport
The greeting by front desk @ 3:00AM after a horrendous flight from east coast was so very welcome. That attitude was evident during my entire four night stay. Marriott has never forgotten that hospitality is about the people, more than just a place to rest your body. This was an overall great experience. I do not have a single suggestion on improving anything I experienced
Marriott hotels have always been an enjoyable experience. The room, location and overall stay was very nice. The in room dining as well as pool service staff was beyond slow. The drinks by the pool had a 30 minute ticket time and I had to call in room dining 6 times before my what was supposed to be surprise order of champagne arrived. I'm in the industry as well and understand things get busy. The in room dining gave us some strawberries as an apology for the delay which was nice but th pool staff did nothing to appease everyone's clear annoyance with the slowness of service. It wouldn't deter me from returning necessarily but it does make me question the hiring process at this location. Not only was the pool staff slow, the gentleman had the personality of a shoe.
The friendliness of the staff
Spa was amazing! Pay for parking and taking extra money for deposit
Swimming pool and sea view were so beautiful the room is a little small
Suite at the Montage was fantastic with views to die for - great property with paths to the beach. The room had a comfortable bed, plenty of closet space, the room was made up at night with turn down service - overall one of our favorite places of all time, ever! Food items a little pricy ($100+) for 2 omelets and Belgium waffles for breakfast and while we like nice places to stay we often find that the "high end" food is a little too gourmet for our tastes and we found ourselves not eating on the property after the first day.
Pool The Ocean View Room was not Really an Ocean view. We had to spend a lot more to get a slight view of ocean.
Excellent service. Staff were very helpful and friendly!
Nice area to behind the hotel to walk. Larger room size Service was somewhat lacking. I stayed 3 nights. My room was never serviced by the cleaning crew after I checked in. Mattress was very firm and not very comfortable. Hotel nickel and dimes for everything. Self parking was $22 a night. Hotel Concierge wanted to charge me an additional $20 a night when I (a solo traveller) requested a king bed upon arrival instead of two queens, even though the hotel was half empty and the published rates of the king rooms were $35 less a night than the nightly rate I had paid for my stay.
Nice hotel which is close to PIMCO and Pacific Life Insurance
everything except the HOT, HOT, HOT weather. could not get hotel room cool enough in face of heat wave (25 degrees above expected temperature).
Very relaxing, wonderful food and brilliant staff. Did not use Spa. Pool was good. We had to move rooms as there was building work on that side of the hotel. Very surprised that they even put guests in such rooms as work started as early as 5am and we did not sleep after that time.
Great location - right across from Fashion Island shopping center. Easy access to restaurants, movies, shopping. Staff was very courteous and friendly. This was my second stay here. I would come back.
The Hotel was truly five star, excellent staff and the rooms were great. Good location but you need a car to get anywhere in California. The Fashion Island shopping centre is next door and offers alternative dining options. This was our first visit to Newport Beach and the Hotel was a positive start to a great trip. As with most west coast hotels the parking costs do increase the cost of staying but overall this was a minor issue.
Hotel was beautiful, staff was courteous and friendly. $29/day for valet parking when no public parking was available. This added an additional 10% to the total cost of my stay. Ridiculous.
Very nice & comfortable rooms Wonderful staff. Very helpful & personable Nothing. All was good
Excellent customer service. Everything was great!
We come back regularly. The hotel is well appointed and the staff is very professional. Rooms are comfortable and view to ocean side over fashion island is super. Oak Grill Room on the deck for breakfast is a treat.
I think the valet parking fee was too high. There wasn't any options provided to self parking. You had no choice but to pay $32 parking fee.
The decor was awesome A little pricy
The location was perfect close to shops, restaurant with easy access. The hotel rooms were very comfortable & roomy. The staff was excellent, exceeded any expectations. My toilet had some trouble flushing but aside from that no problems. Please do not print that for public use.
$32/night mandatory valet parking is ridiculous. Other than that, nice place.
Below average service Room had a weird smell. Asked reception to change my room and they said that they couldnt. They told me that I would need to upgrade and pay the price difference. Cleaning service were cleaning empty rooms at 10 pm while we were trying to sleep. 32$ parking per night in an area where it should be free. Better options out there. Definitely not returning.
We were there for a Charity Gala. The patio is very pleasant for an evening event. The bed was comfortable, and I always enjoy Aveeda bathroom products. I found the policies for entertainment to be completely antiquated! The majority of the tv channels are still Low Def! We ordered a movie and fell asleep, only to be told by the front desk staff that the system is operated by a different company so rewatching meant PAYING AGAIN (in less than a 24 hr period). If I were traveling for business, this might have little impact on my rating. But when staying for pleasure, this is unacceptable in Orange County!
Clean an beautiful room I did not like paying $32 to valet our car for one night
The rooms need to be updated.
Got a great deal great location! Be prepared for the $30 parking fee.
Mattress was comfy. No self parking option. Valet $32 but half price for hybrid vehicles.
$32 for parking! My god.
The staff was very friendly and they surprised us a an anniversary treat!! The room was beautiful and the bed was super comfy! Valet is mandatory and quite expensive!
We booked a single King. We got a tiny room with two double beds. Said they were out of Kings. Said they don't guarantee requests for online bookings. We were very disappointed. They did move us the second night but there was a constant banging noise in the vent so we couldn't sleep. We were treated like second class boarders. Parking is $32 a night with no option. The breakfast was not up to Fairmont standards. We will not stay there again.
The bathroom was great and the bed was very comfortable. The restaurant was just fair.
It was all very beautiful, nice comfortable bed. Everything seems nice, new, and fresh. Amazing internet speed. Seems very executive. No where nearby will have free or cheap parking. I paid $30 bucks for parking overnight and $20 for wifi. Room was decently priced, but it was so fancy i didn't want to take the complimentary soaps just incase they'd charge me for that too.
We enjoyed the beds. We had a great night sleep.
Good location, since it's close to the airport. Facility is extremely outdated, room was tiny and noisy. Parking is an additional $22 per day, which is robbery. I suggest you stay at the Irivne Wyndam instead.
Staff, always professional always polite. Pool fantastic, Spa clean and warm. I loved the Bed, super cloud pillow topped, room clean. Bathroom luxury, from soaps to towels good size. 24/7 always staff on hand. Had starbucks in hotel foyer. Blackout curtains kept morning sun at bay. My 71 yr old mother did not enjoy the pillow top beds, suggested they smothered her. Could hear some trucks on highway braking in mornings and night. It is geared for business, so appeared everything has an additional cost per unit.
Newly remodeled and well kept up. Quiet, and a great view. Service at the cafe was awesome. The price I paid was a very good value.
Nice facility, friendly staff, comfortable large room. $28 for parking in a non-enclosed lots seemed kinda high, but what can you do. A 3.5-4 star hotel at this rate you really can't complain
Loved that the bedroom was separate from the family room, complimentary mini fridge, bath tub & stand up shower was a big plus, easy access to freeway, food & beach! Other than noise from remodeling, I love love love this location!
$28 for parking a night? Like just hide it in the fee or something because it's just ridiculous. I'd guess that 95% of guests arrive with at least one car.
The staff were great especially Mica
The large bathroom with a separate shower and bath was amazing. The bedrooms had doors separating it from the spacious living room. The bed was extremely comfortable. There were 2 TVs with a fairly good selection of channels. The hotel is located away from places to eat so ordering room service sounds great but it's extremely overpriced. Price of parking was ridiculous. Sofa bed was extremely uncomfortable and the extra blankets were scratchy.
Parking should be more clear that it is charged.. I would have rather just ubered there
They charge $25 for parking and there are no other parking options.
Overall, the staff was very nice and helpful. The rooms were clean and the grounds were well kept. We didn't eat at the restaurant but it looked like it had good selections. We got a suite with water front view. I think the view was a joke as it looked like a semi-dried up marsh. If you went down a few blocks, it was beautiful. I was a little disappointed with the view as I paid extra for it. The bed was very uncomfortable, my husband and I tossed and turned all night.
Great room on marina. It took over an hour to check in. Hotel did not have my Kayak reservation right and I had to spend a lot of time on the phone getting it straight. Also, make sure you get a room with a water view.
The staff was very friendly and accommodating at the front desk, restaurants, housekeeping, and pool. Room was big and it was nice getting bottled water every day. Food at the restaurant (lunch) was surprisingly good and sitting outside by the bay was enjoyable. Overall, the facility was "tired" and is in need of renovations. Especially, the pool area lounges and chairs were old and stained. We prefer fitted sheets (which these were not) and carpets throughout the hotel (room, elevator, halls) need attention. We were told by one of the maintenance personnel who was in our room to fix a sliding shutter door, that the hotel was be remodeled within the next 3 months which is encouraging. Location was somewhat of a catch-22. It was nice being on the harbor but you really couldn't walk anywhere to shop or eat. Must have car if you want to go anywhere off site. Overall, we had a good time.
Heat didn't work. Charged $28 for parking without alerting us in advance. Room was completely standard of any hotel. Room service forgot our dressing, and the food was subpar
Rooms are very nice with 4 star amenities. mix of families, locals and travelers First night room was noisy due to being close to event space. They switched rooms for me next night with an upgrade and waved resort fee. Very professional and accommodating staff.
Good location. They are charging you for a bottle of red wine that is in your room. They tell you as they are giving you the key that it's included in the price - well we didn't drink the wine nor did we want to pay for it. It doesn't matter that if you don't want it - you are paying for it anyway, how ridiculous!
Our room had such a great view of the bay. It was very relaxing and quiet. We kept the balcony doors open almost the whole time! The staff was very polite and accommodating whenever we asked for anything. The first room we were put in, the shutters were broken and would not close for privacy. As soon as I called down, they had someone come up and move us 5 doors down within minutes. The staff was very polite and helpful.
Comfortable beds I like to workout and the gym was less than adequate and the equipment definitely needs to be updated.
Friendly staff Good views from room Very poor (unusable) internet signal in room Gym and pool could be better Outdated decor
Everything was perfect, exactly what I expected! The pictures do the facilities justice!!! I was not disappointed in the least bit.
The shower was nice. The wi-fi connection was awful. Kept getting dropped. Worst wi-fi ever. They don't offer a wired connection alternative. Our room was really cramped for three adults. Our son attempted to sleep on the provided roll-away bed, but it was unrelentingly crappy. He ended up sleeping with just his feet on the bed and most of his body in a padded chair. They charge $18 to park in a cramped parking lot that's located in a business park. Felt ripped off. For some reason this Wyndham didn't even show up on our GPS, and we have the latest maps. Maybe it was trying to tell us something?
Friendly, clean, nice atmosphere, and complimentary breakfast! Parking cost isn't mentioned on third party websites
Clean room Wifi didn't work and staff wasn't very helpful Unclear restaurant hours and services Cost of everything was ridiculous even for a hotel.
I travel a lot and have stayed in a variety of different hotels and this surprisingly ranks amongst my favorite. I was a little hesitant coming to this hotel based on some of the reviews from other sites and by no means does this hotel come in short on anything. Would definitely stay here again and recommend.
There was a bunch of teenagers staying in the room next to us and they kept hanging out in the hall and knocking on the doors, from their room and the room across from them. The walls were too thin and we could hear them all night. They finally settled down at 3:30am. So I didn't sleep too well.
Awesome windows, comfy bed, very clean.
Nice hotel The room service stops at 11pm and bar closes at 11:30pm
The air conditioner stopped working the last night
Just steps away from the Segerstrom Theatre and across the street from South Coast Plaza. Well kept, friendly and knowledgeable staff. The room was very comfortable and quiet. We enjoyed the entire experience. There wasn't anything we didn't like.
Love the incentive to forgo Housekeeping daily in exchange $5 voucher. Some aspects seemed a little dates (ie the elevator, room furniture).
We paid $158 per night plus taxes and $20 per night self parking. It was convenient, clean, and comfortable. Front door staff and housekeeping were helpful and friendly.
Location. Starbucks inside hotel. Great bath amenities. There was one issue with the bedding upon arrival. Other than that, was a very nice experience.
Maids never knocked, great black out curtains Had a 5 night stay and everything was perfect Nothing Unless they wanted me to get a free stay ????
It was clean, upper scale, and was treated well.
I love the Area and the building and its surroundings
Loved that I was able to do early check in and was offered complimentary late check out. Enjoyed the elegant atmosphere. The heated pool was our favorite. Walking distance to dinner and to the mall to do some shopping. Parking was a bit expensive $27.00 to be exact.
The staff at Check in was not exactly accommodating to the people in line. The gentlemen behind the counter was having a conversation about non work related subjects with a guest, although claiming it to be hotel and check in related, while we stood in line for 15-20 minutes. For a 4 star hotel, the check in process was not that of a 4 star rating. The check in process is more of a 1 star.
Everything exceeded my expectations. Staff was VERY kind. Room was way more than I paid for. Everything was just perfect. I have absolutely no complaints what so ever. All around great!
Convenient location, comfortable room, adequate parking, good value given prices of other hotels in the area. A metal clanking repeatedly from 2 a.m. to 4 a.m., which woke me up multiple times the one night I was there, which I didn't hear the rest of my stay. It makes me think it was the result of cleaning or maintenance; if so, it's a poor choice at that time of day and inconsiderate.
TheDesk Was Very Nice...Checked To Make Sure Room Was good
Property is just starting to show its use/worn. Staff was excellent. Door to room didn't work upon arrival and day 2. Staff fixed right away and comp'd me breakfast for the trouble. Room: carpet a tad worn. Some small maintenance items in the room, nothing major. Cap missing on toilet seat. Electrical conduit falling off wall. Couple spots on bed frame workout. Bathroom was awesome. Bed/ sheets super clean and incredibly comfortable. HVAC worked well/quiet fan.
Good shower. Rain style shower head. Good restaurant and friendly staff. Lotion in the bathroom was already used. No refrigerator in room. Location of ice only on the first floor. Old furniture. 10 dollars a night for parking.
I enjoyed the staff, welcoming and polite. Bathroom toilet light did not work. AC too loud. Stains on carpet.
Clean. Staff was kind and polite 1) room was very small 2) we arrived 20 min early and waited. And waited as if the only room in the huge hotel was the small Kayak rate room??
The ac vent rattled and made noise as it was turned on . It was a loud enough noise that you would notice and if you could get passed that then you would have no problem sleeping . Room was nice and clean . Pool was nice
Location only The air conditioner wasn't working, was too hot, we open the window and a lot of noise
Booked an ocean-front room. It was 1/2 level above the pool and walkway to rooms. No way you could leave the blinds open to enjoy the view without people staring in. Asked for another room and was told none available; this at 3:40 pm. There we still lots of people checking in later. I believe that because I did not book directly, I was not given priority on this and below. And, arrived at 2:00 pm and told we could not check in until 4:00 pm. We were not offered a hospitality room and found later that they had them. When we did check in, were informed that check out was by noon. So, though rented a room for a day...it was really 20 hrs. We were given a dining credit, but in no way made up for the room. And then.....there was the non-operating elevator. After staying at the hotel 20+ times in the past on business, I will not return.
Hotel is directly on the beach, and I mean, at high tide, 15 feet from the surf. All rooms face the ocean. Romantic dining restaurant with views of the ocean. There are floodlights illuminating the surf so you can see the ocean while you dine. Below the restaurant is a very cool bar, also, directly on the beach. Excellent location as they say. The pool sundeck is nice and the valet service was good. pool was heated and there is a jacuzzi. The property is older and they can charge the money because of their location. You wouldn't pay this amount if the property wasn't on the beach. Byzantine design and labyrinth of hallways makes for a confusing layout and difficult to get anywhere on the property. The pool is not a resort pool and is only the size and shape of something you would encounter at any discount chain motel. There is no separation of brats from the spa and pool so peace and quiet in those areas with your honey will be difficult.
Location, rooms. Customer service could be better, we requested an early check in which they said was not a problem, we got there around 11am their regular check in is at 4:00pm, they told us our room wasn't ready yet but it would be ready soon. 4 hours later and still wasn't, they finally call us around 3:15pm to tell us that our room was ready, so we went to check in and when we said our name they told us it was a mistake that our room wasn't ready yet! So finally we check in at 3:50 pm, I guess still an early check in right? To top it off, when we received our bill, they charged us for a wrong service for almost $100 more! I don't know if we will be back.
The views No air conditioning
Great overall experience Paying for parking
Clean facilities, comfortable bed and free drinks Expected larger suite for the high price. Few amenities close by
Could hear the service elevator from my room went until late at night and started early in the morning. Loud squeal and banging doors made it impossible to sleep. The front desk offered no help they said it should stop by 11:00 pm which it did not and they did not tell me it would start again at 6:00 am.
Complimentary breakfast, snacks in the evening along with a two hour complimentary beer and mixed drink happy hour free for all. Complimentary shuttle to the very close airport. 7 miles from the beach a running trail about a mile from the hotel that goes all the way to the beach. Shuttle delivered me to my office within the 3 mile max radius. Staff helped with a mildly exceptional request of providing me with a screw driver from maintenance so I could repair my luggage. The key card opens doors with proximity so I could keep my key in my wallet and put my wallet next to the sensor. I should have complained about the heat / air vent. Watching TV it was fine but going to bed it was just loud enough that I slept with a pillow on both sides of my head. Oh and after the two hour happy hour the prices for drinks become a bit unreasonable an interesting strategy they have.
The room was big! The pub area was a fun, breakfast and managers cocktail/snack time are always a plus. Gym was small, but worked for my needs. Laundry facility was kind of janky, just one chair, maybe a TV or more than one chair or something would help.
Friendly staff that always followed up to make sure that we were doing well. Dorothy was absolutely amazing! Love the remodel of the facility and would highly recommend. Parking was not free but to be expected when your staying in the city.
The room was nice. Clean. Comfortable. Parking is an extra $15 ridiculous. Room service dishes sat outside of rooms all day kinda gross. Maid service asked if we were gone yet way before check out kinda rude. 3 candy bars cost us $9 way too expensive
I mostly try and stay at Embassy Suites when I travel. This hotel was clean, friendly staff and great accommodations. Parking at $15 dollars a day seems a little excessive. Other than the parking everything else was good.
Nice, just recently renovated hotel rooms. Everything was in pristine condition. Comfortable beds, good breakfast (made to order eggs, potatoes, bacon, sausage, fruit, cereal etc). Housekeeping woke us up at 8:00 am. Not happy about that. Also pillows are not that good.
Nice hotel, good service, comfortable beds, great breakfast Hotel is doing construction and they gave us a room directly under the floor they were working on. To their credit they did stop working at a reasonable time and did not start working till 9am.
The staff was very helpful. Our truck did not fit in the parking garage so they made sure there was a spot for us in the short term parking lot for our whole stay. Very friendly helpful staff. Complementary breakfast was perfect way to start our day. Clean nice sized rooms. The location of the hotel was close to everything! Newport Beach, Huntington Beach and balboa all 20-30 min away. Dinning and activities for the family only 7-10 min away. Great hotel!!
Most everything was perfect We would have much preferred to be on the same floor as family we were with!!! We made reservations at least 2-3 weeks prior and requested 2 rooms together. Thankfully we were with young adult and 2 teenagers that could be on different floor but it was u settling and inconvenient
Location, seconds away from the beach and easy exsit to freeways. cleanliness, room cleaned daily and well stocked with towels. front desk was friendly and helpful. Our room faced the beach and had a view of the marina. Compliment Breakfest had a decent spread for being free. Parking was a little tight some nights. Near the 1 FWY can get some traffic noise
Friendly Staff, Great Location, Comfortable and very clean room with well stocked bathroom and very good breakfast. Having to pay for car parking as it was stated on my original booking that guest parking was free.
Location- however- think about driving a longer distance than staying close- The food was processed and bad- the hotel was old, bathrooms were dingy- floors dirty- sad the call it an ok hotel. The air didn't work- and the manager said it did- how about the customer is right???? It was just a place to set out heads! Nothing more- ohhhh and ice machine sucke as well-
I usually only stay at Best Westerns. But after my experience at the Newport Mesa Inn I never want to go again. Basically got kicked out of continental breakfast because we had a service dog, even though I let them know and asked questions when I checked in the night before. Couldn't even get one glass of juice without being stopped and asked to leave "the common area" because people complained. Really? A couple complaints within a minute? We walked in minding our own business and our dog was quiet in our own arms, beahving perfectly fine. And for those ignorant people's information, we purposely got a small, hypoallergenic nonshedding dog so it would be less inconvenient, especially for those with allergies. Maybe you can at least bother to ask us some questions before just asking us to leave. So we check to see if we can at least sit outside, but that area is occupied by people smoking. So they seriously want us to eat our breakfast outside in the smoking area? And we can't take it to our room either? It says, "The ADA mandates that the service dog and handler have access to all public places. This is the law." So is the hotel and their "common area" not a public place? "Businesses may not: Refuse admittance, isolate, segregate, or treat this person less favorably than other patrons." I'm so angry even as I'm typing this, because it just reminds me what annoying trouble we went through. I have never had this problem at hotels until today. I have half a mind of suing these people, or taking it up to corporate. We came to celebrate my fiancé's birthday and our anniversary, but we left feeling degraded, and our day in Newport was ruined. Thanks Best Western.
I liked the fact that it was so close to the OC Fair grounds. And also I like the serviceand attention the staff provided. n/a
they were always helpful. Convenient location. Complete breakfast. Big rooms. It should be a 4 * hotel
Close to the venue we had to attend
Big bedroom Location: literally on the highway. Breakfast not as good
The staff was helpful and business like. Kathleen and the cook were the most friendly people We've ever met. Even though we were the only ones there for dinner, we were treated like royalty. The room was spacious and clean.
I enjoyed how peaceful and quiete the stay was. No microwave available in room.
It was located just across the OC Fairgrounds which very convenient ifuring the fair. It is also easily accessible near the H73 and H55. Also close to all the beaches (Huntington, Newport and Laguna) and shopping malls. Some rooms are too close to the backyard parking. Breakfast has no fruits !!!!!!!!!!
I would highly recommend this hotel. Great location near freeways, shops, beaches. Great facilities and staff. Would stay again.
Helpful and cheerful staff. Clean room. Comfortable bed. Few restaurants in walking distance.
Clean, comfortable rooms. Laundry facilities if I wanted to do my own laundry. Cleaning service if I wanted that. Very professional Staff.
Quiet, mountain view, comfortable and clean rooms with all modern amenities, nice fitness room and pool, hot tub and spa. Limited parking, small parking spots, not right on beach, no lotion in room and Keurig machine not working very well, bathroom outlets not working.
This was a nice and comfortable resort with clean rooms and decent food. Rooms have been updated and decor is a hybrid of transitional contemporary and traditional. WiFi was good and Staff was friendly. If you're an ATT mobile subscriber, the cell signal was weak. You will have to switch to calling over WiFi.
Great cozy place
