    « Awesome Stay »

    Stayed here for a week. Stay was awesome with excellent breakfast. Staff at Reception and Breakfast (especially the waffle!) were very nice. Excellent Service. Used the Gym daily with TV, Aircon and Toilet. Great Basement Car Park. Remember to check in at front before driving down. Need Key to access the door to lift. Wireless on mobile and laptop was great. If you need to use the cable, get about 4m (12 feet) lan cable as the port is away from the table. Will definitely stay here next time.

    I really enjoyed my stay at the Best Western. All the stay were awesome and a great breakfast. The staff in the breakfast room were exceptionally nice and I enjoyed conversing with. Nice quiet room and big screen television. And they serve hot cookies in the lobby.

    « Extremely Nice BW Plus »

    We make it a point to stay at Best Western's in our business and pleasure travels. They have really stepped it up and this particular Best Western Plus was a delightful experience and all the whole stay from beginning to end was a 10 I would stay here again when in the area and have already recommened this hotel to friends.

    « Having it both ways »

    We live about 2 hrs away in the mountains, amongst the tree tops, overlooking a lake, wonderful lifestyle. But, we miss the ocean and the OC environment. My husband has a lil less than 1 yr to retirements and these getaways this hotel help take some stress out of the daily grind. We adore the location pricing and proximity to beach, fair grounds, shopping and dining choices. The rooms are really great for our taste and comfort. Pretty hotel and landscape. Breakfast is yummy and staff always kind and friendly. Best Western Plus is pretty amazing with the in room amenities, Apples, bottles water and snacks no charge, awesome selection of toiletry items and free parking .

    Safe neighborhood, close shopping & restaurants, close to beach & wharf, and great parking. This hotel was clean, friendly, has great amenities, and a great breakfast. The beds were very comfortable and the rooms were decorated nicely. The room had a coffee make, small fridge, and a microwave. The front desk also sold some snacks, drinks, toiletries, and medication. I will definitely stay here again.

    « Superb Accommodations and Great Experience »

    Very warm and friendly staff at front desk and housekeeping was superb. The breakfast was beyond average and the staff was friendly in the dining area. We would definitely return to this hotel again. It was also in a great location near parkways, few miles from beach and near lots of restaurants and shopping. Very very clean hotel.

    I've got to say this is a very nice clean hotel room. I usually don't write comments, but this room was super clean. It is the first hotel where the bathroom grout was white! Carpet and linens were relatively new and very clean. Big walk in closet too! Loved this room. They serve a full breakfast with linen, real utensils, and plenty of tables. Friendly staff. Four miles to Newport Beach hot spots and close to the fairgrounds and John Wayne airport.

    « Surprised at quality »

    A larger than normal room, comfortable bed, 42" TV, a much better than average breakfast. This is a place I would visit again. Reasonably priced, close to Vanguard and just off CA 55. There are really no negatives on this place. Coffee available anytime too!

    BW Plus was a much better value than certain hotels in close proximity that cost 2-3x as much. Room was spacious, good amenities, and very friendly staff. Highly recommended for business or recreational travelers.

    « Good value for money »

    I chose this hotel because of its proximity to Disney first and sea world second. It is a nice clean hotel with spacious rooms. The breakfast finishes at 9.30 sharp and that is a disadvantage specially during vacation. The staff is very helpful and courteous.

    I have stayed in a lot of hotels about 300 nights a year, and I was very surprised at the quality of the rooms in this hotel, it has to be one of the best keep secrets. I have only stayed in two other Best Westerns with rooms this nice and one of them was in Germany. great job on this hotel with the rooms and house keeping service.

    « Staying close to Long Beach but in Costa Mesa »

    Stayed here for an education session but was close enough to walk the beach and ate at a fabulous restaurant called Gulfstream, seafood is their special. The hotel is older but clean and comfortable. Prices are higher in this area because you are in the Longbeach area,...Breakfast was a full self serve . Coffee cup refilled often.... Right off freeway, so just jump on and go.

    « Avoiding the fire »

    We were in Costa Mesa when the wildfires blocked our way home. It seemed every hotel had increased priced that night, but not the Best Western. The staff was helpful, the room clean. and we got a badly needed breakfast before setting out to find a way home

    « Very average »

    This hotel is average at best. The room I had was clean and I appreciated the free snacks. The free breakfast was not good at all. Rubbery cold eggs, odd tasting sausage and an automatic toaster that did not toast the first run through and burned on the second run through. There were 3 extremely nice and attentive employees on hand during the breakfast, which helped. The hotel must be in the process of remodeling as the best outside parking was taken by work trucks and the prime inside spaces were full of carpet, trash, furniture, and building materials. All in all it was just average and what I would expect of a best western.

    « 40th High School Reunion »

    They've remodeled this hotel that's been there for a very long time and it's clean and comfortable and the staff is incredibly accommodating and friendly. I highly recommend choosing this hotel for any time of stay in Orange County. We have a special needs son in his 20s and he was very comfortable and happy while we stayed here. The breakfast staff was amazing! So happy and informative and helpful and the food was great????

    « Best Western Plus Newport Mesa Inn Costa Mesa »

    I have to say that this was among the finest Best Westerns we have stayed at. Water, fruit, and personal items provided. Linens and bedding were excellent. Everything worked and worked well which is not always the case. The staff was very courteous and polite and actually seemed like they cared to have you stay there again. Breakfast was really good, the best so far at B/W. Last stay in Chula Vista was really discouraging. May not go back again. You will enjoy this Hotel.

    « Nice place »

    Our stay at the hotel was great! It looked like they have recently remodeled. Nice and clean. Only thing we didn't like was the sofa sleeper was a very uncomfortable futon. But if you didn't need to use a sofa sleeper, the normal beds were comfortable.

    « Good stay »

    This is one of the better-looking hotels around the area, and the price wasn't too bad. Best Western Plus's are usually pretty decent to stay in and this one was no different. The room was very clean the shower was great and the bed was comfortable. They put out a couple bottles of water a couple apples some chips and a couple breakfast bars in your room. The TV worked good the fridge worked good as well. If I was back in the area I would stay here again.

    « Very nice stay »

    Well, of course, this is a Best Western, and should be compared with hotels of a similar cost and market positioning. As such, this is a very solid hotel offering. We stayed here one night while visiting the area to attend the Orange County Fair. Following a full fair day we were tired and eager to settle down to a comfortable stay. Check-in at the hotel was quick and friendly, and we soon found we were settled down in a comfortable room. The hotel had provided complementary bottled water and fruit, so we were set. For dinner we found a little hole-in-the-wall Argentinean restaurant about a mile down the street which featured great take-out and bought a bottle of wine from a local Super K market. Our overnight stay was perfect. In the morning we took advantage of their complementary breakfast. The breakfast offering included the expected buffet eggs, fruits, pastries and cereals. There was no omelette bar. I think we got our money's worth out of this stay. Good service, good facility, and good value.

    « College Visit »

    This hotel is great at $149. We paid $208 for several nights. It is not worth it. Old and tired with bad internet and breakfast. The pool area was not great. The only good thing was they had a laundry that was much needed.

    « perfect place to stay for the OC fair, you can walk »

    « Great value & close to beach and OC attractions »

    Best Western Newport Mesa Inn, Costa Mesa is in a great central location and costs less than staying in a beach city or near family attractions. It provides family friendly value and a great breakfast if you are vacationing in OC. Parking is free and the freeway is close by for easy access to major sightseeing areas.

    « Beach visit »

    The Best Western Plus Newport Mesa Inn is clean, plenty of parking and the staff is friendly and quite helpful with directions. We stayed there for a visit to the beach and Knott's Berry Farm. The location is an easy access off the 55. The location offered a hot breakfast, there was something for everyone to enjoy.

    « Crappy Internet »

    Called the front desk tonight after painstakingly trying to do work with the Internet. The front desk guy tells me that "iPads and cell phones are unreliable," and "we are close to the airport and that messes up the Internet sometimes." Seriously? I stay in hotels 100-150 nights a year, and rarely is the wifi like this. I tell the guy I just won't stay here anymore, and he says, "ok," and hangs up. So much for being a platinum member, yes?

    « Horrible customer service! Never refunded my money! »

    DON'T EVER BOOK HERE!!!! Horrible customer service. A situation came up and Mary, the lady I spoke to at this hotel, was suppose to issue my refund. It's been almost 2 weeks and my refund hasn't been issued, yet! I spoke with her twice already and every time she said she will return my money, she NEVER did! Other co-workers were helpless and the manager was not in office or available to help. Don't waste your time and money dealing with people who can't do their job right!

    « Good Hotel »

    This was a great location. The hotel room is huge, it was quiet. My only complaint is the ice machine on the third floor. Every time ice dropped it sounded like a body was being slammed against the wall. The machine looks to be about 100 years old. You might consider changing it.

    « Very Nice Place »

    The Best Western Plus in Costa Mesa is located in a very convenient place to get around the Beach Cities and into the Business areas of Santa Ana and Irvine, right off of highway 55. Food was very good and the Staff was helpful. Good coffee in the Lobby and Starbucks just a short walking distance.

    « Stay at Best Western »

    « Great stay »

    Needed a place to stay for one night while waiting to meet up with family. The room was very clean and the beds were very comfortable. I never sleep well when traveling and probably had the best night of sleep I have ever had in a hotel. The included breakfast was also on the higher end of the typical hotel breakfast. Plenty of hot food that was pretty tasty. All the employees we interacted with - front desk and breakfast buffet - were very friendly and accommodating. The only negative was the underground parking garage was barely lit and super creepy. It desperately needs brighter lights installed.

    « Quick stop but sure was nice »

    This was the only place I called that had a room and I'm sure glad I snagged the last room as it was well after midnight and I was driving for a long time. Great rate given by the night kid that was well lower than others places I had called along my way so thank you for that. I was given a two queen on the top floor and I really think I will have to bring the wife any time I come back here as the rooms were much nicer than what I would have imagined from a best western. Very nice bed and little free snacks were appreciated. Only thing I can say was odd was seeing that young kid that checked me in get yelled at during the breakfast. Another guy and I exchanged confused looks as we were the only ones in the breakfast and I didn't stay much longer after that. Food was great though and again very unexpected for a best western. Thanks for the nice night and good service. If I am ever plan a trip to this area I know where we will be staying!

    « UCI Graduation »

    The overall experience was great. The room was large and pleasant, but the walls were somewhat thin. We kept the air conditioner on to block out the noise. The hotel is next to the freeway and there is no view. Breakfast was tasty with lots of variety. This place was a great value and convenient to UCI and Newport Beach. I will stay there on my next visit.

    « Awesome room at a super cheap price »

    I'm told that I was updated to a nicer room which had a king sized bed and on the receipt, it's listed as a "business suite". The room was much larger than I expected or needed, but I appreciated it. Large screen TV, a mini-wet bar area,a recliner, microwave and fridge and dresser drawers like one would find in a home. I was in room 311, which is near the rear entrace, but far away enough from the vending machine/ice machine so that noise didn't bother me. I only stayed a night and didn't use the pool (typical 3-5 ft depth), but I used the restaurant for breakfast the last day. I was offered a free buffet ticket and the meal was decent. The facility has a waffle maker, yogurt/fruit station, basic baked goods and a mini hot bar that is served by one of the restaurant staff. Overall, a peaceful night of sleep, my car was safely parked in the parking lot (they also offer an underground garage), and a well served breakfast all for a low price=success!

    « Nice business stay »

    Very good stay for the price. Did not skimp on room amenities like many hotels today. Bath robes, slippers, emergency shaving kit, etc, etc. Free waters, apples, and snacks....all provided in the room.

    « My New Go-To Place For Anything OC! »

    Since I rarely flew out of Orange County, I never saw the need to "Park and Fly" out of a local hotel. Now, I don't mind flying out of OC, since I found this hotel! It's centrally located for both flying AND regular business! The shuttle took me to the airport and picked me up as soon as I called, the staff was wonderful and the room was clean and quiet. The breakfast the next morning was delicious and plentiful (if you left hungry, it was your fault). For business travel, there's an area to work, as well as for meetings. I have to be back in OC in 2 weeks, and I'll definitely be staying at this hotel! FYI, while the hotel is located on a main Boulevard, you will NOT hear ANY traffic noise at all. I was very impressed.

    « Surprise! »

    Stumbled upon this hotel after a Longhaul flight to LAX. I was pleasantly surprised. Rooms were very well appointed and the beds so comfortable. We had a really pleasant stay and did not expect the level of service or quality. I would highly recommend this hotel. Staff were very helpful and welcoming. Breakfast was well stocked and typical for this grade hotel. Very clean and fresh!

    « Exceeded Expectations »

    My family has celiac disease, which makes our travel more difficult than others. Our room had a gift basket with water and two large apples. At breakfast, they bake their own gluten free flaxseed muffins in separate pans and utensils to keep them safe from cross contamination. They also had honey nut rice chex in its own serving box. They do the extras to exceed expectations. Will come back.

    « Pleasantly surprised »

    I didn't have great expectations when I made reservations at this hotel. I was totally and pleasantly surprised when we walked into the lobby (late), and was greeted by a smiling personable staff person at the desk. She offered cookies and set us up quickly in our room. When we got to the room, it had been newly remodeled (new carpet smell!) and we were thrilled! The bathroom was so clean, I just couldn't get over the experience. The only down side for some might be the road noise, but it is so constant it is more like a white noise app on our iPad than a disturbance. We slept well, and we slept in without issue. The breakfast was amazing, and the staff are so nice! Parking is easy, staff members are friendly, and the room was clean! It doesn't get any better. We would definitely choose this hotel again.

    « Unpleasant surprises left and right »

    we booked this hotel based on location, price and reputation. major fails include fitness center (broken equipment & none of the usual amenities), internet access (pathetic even with DSL cable - really, who uses DSL anymore), restaurant (awful service & poor food ruined dinner but breakfast was just okay). management is clearly following a hands off attitude and it shows. even something as simple as having hot water in the lobby for the tea provided was missing. overall, this place has put BW in jeopardy in all our future travel plans.

    « Nice for a 3 star »

    This is a nice hotel. Obviously it is not a 4 or 5 star. But they work hard to help make it close to that. Staff is friendly and works hard. The beds are comfortable. The breakfasts are good and it was mostly quiet. However, it is positioned in a tougher area. Vacant lots next door. Motels nearby. So, the crowd that gathers isn't really inviting. However, this is a nice hotel that is close to many areas. I would recommend it for a family or a couple wanting to save some yet still have a decent room.

    « Great option near airport and UCI »

    I was looking for a hotel $100-$125 a night near UCI including parking, wifi, and breakfast. This was the best option I found and we enjoyed our stay. The room and public areas were all spotless and service was great. The room had all the standard amenities plus a mini fridge. The free breakfast was above average. The room design was not ideal in that there is no external vanity area - shower, toilet, and vanity are all in one room. The bathroom light switch is also tied to the fan so no light without a noisy fan. Pool was small but area and chairs were nicer than expected. Overall we were pleased and would stay again.

    « Solid hotel for reasonable price »

    It's not special but everything works well and is spotless. I didn't try the restaurant but the menu looked quite good. I stayed prior to a meeting at UC Irvine and would come back because of the convenience and predictable experience.

    Only minutes away from John Wayne airport, a great hotel within my budget. It's really not necessary to pay $225 a night when other places such as this offer everything I needed. Breakfast staff is wonderful! they clear the plates and serve you 2 different varieties of eggs and meat each day. Always greeted with a smile and a Good Morning. greeting. Clean and comfortable.

    « Son graduating with Master's Degree »

    The hotel is very clean and the employees are excellent. We had trouble with internet. Also, there was a couple of stacks of obscene - politically oriented magazines on the table in the lobby. We have stayed at this hotel before and enjoyed our stay. But I am disturbed about the fact that the OC Weekly magazine with a very offensive cover was on prominent display in the lobby.

    « Proximity to Fairgrounds= good or bad »

    If you are attending an event at the fairgrounds, this is your place. If you are not, those events can get in the way of your getting a quiet night's sleep or catch you up in a detour. Helicopters are common. If you sleep with the window open, it is noisy at 95% of the rooms. 'Restaurant' is only open 5:30 to 8:30 and not at all on the weekends (except for breakfast). Comfortable rooms.

    « Best place ever »

    This BW is the best hotel I ever visited so far. The room is so nice. They even provided a welcome fruit basket, wow. It had 2 water bottles, 2 apples, 2 granola bars, and one Fritos chip. The room has a desk that has a Ethernet port and outlet for your cell charger?someone was thinking. Their morning breakfast is similar to other BW, but their staffs were more helpful?such good service. I wonder all BW PLUS like this? Only CON, these people didn't get the word, after cleaning the carpet you should open the window and turn on the A/C to ventilate the smell so customer like me don't have to suffer with the carpet cleaner smell. I would recommend that BW replace their shower spout/head and hangers because it's old.

    « Starting to go downhill...? »

    This was the 4th time we stayed here at this BW. I like this chain and have had good previous experiences at this location. Check in and check out were quick and the lobby staff was very friendly and professional. Our room deal included free breakfast buffet and the food was actually pretty decent - good staff here too. The room was just kind of a bummer. Everything worked but it felt like this place is in need of an update. All of the drawers were hard to open, and the handle kept popping off of one of them. Wallpaper seemed to be peeling off of every corner, especially in the bathroom. Several spots on closet and bathroom walls looked as if large holes had been repaired, poorly, under the wallpaper. There was a musty smell coming from the A/C unit. Fit and finish were just not great, as if current ownership is waiting too long to make updates. Felt old, which made it feel dirty, even if it was not. But the bed was very comfortable. Parking lot is way too small. If you get here late you're probably out of luck. For the price - this is one of the more affordable places around Costa Mesa - maybe I just got what I paid for. I'd probably stay here again based on price but it would be nice to see them invest a bit and refresh the rooms. Everything else was fine, except for the parking lot. I probably would not be so critical of the room if previous stays had not been better.

    « Driving up west coast »

    This is a great hotel and very much what we have come to expect from Best Western properties. I booked online . Check in was fast, efficient . The staff at the desk were Cody and Mellisa and they both were very helpful. I had problems hooking up to the hotel internet and they solved the problem quickly. We went to the restaurant onsite for supper. They serve the free hot breakfast in the same room in the mornings. We wondered if we had made a mistake as there was no one but us. Our server Samantha was very attentive though and we were not disappointed. It was a bit slow and not a lot of selection but food was good and we enjoyed it. The next morning when we went to the free breakfast we were once again greeted by Samantha. 3 other people were working and greeted each guest personally and explained where everything was. this was a wonderful hot breakfast. We had tablecloths with fresh flowers and great service.

    « Newport Mesa Best Western is OK »

    Large room, dated decor, weak breakfast, friendly staff. Not as high quality as other Best Western Plus I have stayed at, but it was clean and the room was large enough. A little expensive for the quality of rooms and breakfast. At least they had a nice TV in the room, but the cables? They had nothing in the service fridge.

    This is a good family hotel. Friendly helpful staff, clean Quiet rooms, very good breakfast buffet with excellent welcoming staff. Ask for room at back, away from highway noise. Underground parking is nice option.

    « Meh..... »

    The front desk was friendly, the rooms large BUT very dated. The parking is awful as they spots were painted too close. Be prepared to receive a door ding. Didn't have breakfast as I had to catch an early flight. I know BW are not the greatest but this one fell short.

    « Short getaway »

    After a grueling 4 days doing an exhibition at the Las Vegas convention Center we took ourselves off to visit our daughter in LA so decided to all go to Newport Beach for the weekend and stay over. Lots of hotels to chose from but Best Western Plus looked like it would do nicely. It certainly did, only a short 5-7 minutes from the beach area and easy striking distance to other interesting areas (Orange Old Town, Laguna Beach, Huntington Beach). The hotel entrance easy to access, the reception area open airy and in good condition. Check-in hassle free, rooms: our room was excellent, spacious, well appointed and in great condition with a few neat thoughtful additions; fresh fruit, snacks, and a good selection of teas and coffee, real mugs!! not jut paper cups, clean bagged remote control. All the usual toiletries but in plentiful supply, towels too. House keeping staff (always overlooked as unimportant) were friendly polite and helpful an asset to the owners. All in all our stay was most enjoyable we would certainly recommend this hotel if you are in the area. Thank you. Alan Dickson

    this is a very convenient location for the business I have to conduct in the morning. The location is easy on and off the freeway which makes the area very enjoyable and the restaurant selection very good and not too far from the Best Western Motel. It is also nice that there is a goodie basket in the room with water, apples and nut bars.

    « I don't know why this is a best western plus »

    We had hair in our tub. The hardware around the shower was falling off. They cleaned carpets past check in. And there was no towels around the pool/hot tub. The main good thing is the breakfast. The breakfast staff was so kind and the food was yummy!

    « Better than expected »

    This is my new go-to when doing business in the OC. Of the lower cost options in the area this one checks off all the boxes: safe, quiet newly remodeled room, WiFi, excellent soft goods and a hot breakfast. Some of the other options are great if you missed being an extra in a Fellini movie book a room at Extended Stay or Ramada and you can live the dream.

    « Great value, easy access to CA-55` »

    The Best Western Newport Mesa Inn had everything we've been accustomed to expect from Best Western ? a clean, comfortable room, a good, hot breakfast selection and courteous service. The king room was much larger than average, with a sofa, coffee table, desk and dresser. We enjoyed the novel selection of pastries and the type of meat and scrambled eggs varied daily. The only downside was the breakfast room did not have enough seating to accommodate everyone on Sunday morning because they had a meeting in the adjacent room. We would stay here again if we're back in the area.

    A surprising jewel in Costa Mesa! We were only there for a night on our way back home from Cambria, but looking forward to coming back for a longer stay next time. Clean, quiet, and lots of ammeneties! Make sure to check out Urban Greens! Wonderful food by wonderful women ?

    « Clean, comfortable, good service »

    I always stay at Best Westerns because one can be assured of exceptionally clean accommodations, good beds, free wifi and parking and almost always breakfast is included. The Newport Mesa Inn was no exception and I very much enjoyed my stay. The staff were courteous and very accommodating. Also, there's a restaurant attached for light dinners - the chicken, pear and feta salad was excellent and service was welcoming.

    This is a typical upscale Best Western. Though it is just off the freeway and not far from the airport, the location is pretty quiet. The rooms are nice. Excellent bed. Great amenities in the rooms. They are remodeling. I was in an older room, but it was still very nice.

    « Really nice BW »

    The hotel is very nice and great for business travelers. The property is located just off the highway and the grounds are nothing special. However, this is clearly reflected in the much cheaper price compared to other downtown Irvine hotels and the rooms and facilities were much nicer than I expected. Very comfortable bed, large room and bathroom, etc.

    « Excellent value, comfortable rooms, very clean and breakfast included »

    If you want a clean comfortable place to stay, this is an excellent choice. It is freeway accessible within minutes. Reception was courteous and prompt. The room was spacious with a desk area, sofa, credenza and more than enough electrical outlets for recharging electronics. There was a welcome basket with 2 bottles of water, 2 large apples and 2 energy bars - all complimentary. The bed was comfortable with a mix of large firm and soft pillows. The AC/heat unit is in the wall and it took several adjustment to get the desired temperature. The bathroom area included a coffee maker (read the instructins), small refrigerator,a large walk-in closet ,a large safe and plenty of hangers. There vanity and sink area is adequate for one person at a time. The toilet and bathtub are in an adjacent area and is separated from the rest of the room by a door. It is a little tight. The water is very hot so exercise caution. The amenities included shampoo, conditioner, body wash, face and bath soap and body wash and lotion. Parking, a simple but nutritious breakfast (scrambled eggs, very fresh fruit, meats, breads, cereals, yogurt and beverages). Wi-Fi and parking are complimentary. All in all an excellentplace to stay on any budget and an excellent value.

    We stayed one night to break up the drive home from vacation. Surprised to find a friendly, helpful staff, and well maintained property. Free breakfast was above average with excellent service. Breakfast room was larger than most in similar motels. Good value for the dollar mid-week. The motel is very close to the Orange County Fair grounds and a great place for anyone attending events at that location.

    « What a great place!! »

    Spent two nights recently at the BW Newport Mesa Inn. From my first phone call, to check out, the employees were top notch. Room with two queen beds was spotless. Appreciate the set up with not only a sink in the bathroom, but one outside as well. Especially with two women! The small restaurant not only had provided a hot breakfast (included with room), which include eggs, bacon, potatoes, cereal, waffles, toast, muffins, etc. but also dinner. We had room service two nights and ordered the chicken quesadilla and tacos. For the money it was quite tasty and so convenient. Oh and the fresh baked cookies were delicious. And the beds and pillows (4) were super comfy! I didn't wake up at all both nights...which is super unusual for me! Free wifi connected easily and had no problems. Bath soaps/shampoos were top notch. Free, underground parking available was great parking right next to the elevator. ALL the employees, both at the hotel and restaurant were very friendly and attentive! If I have the occasion to visit the area again, I won't hesitate to stay at the BW Newport Mesa!

    I spent three nights here recently and was a bit concerned when my boss booked this for me. My past experiences with various BW properties was mixed. This one stands out with larger rooms, reasonably quiet too. The breakfast cafe served various options every day and they were a pleasant surprise. It's about 5 miles from SNA airport and about 30 minutes from Irvine.

    « Poor quality overall »

    I should have realized when neither of the TWO toilet paper holders actually had a holder - the paper core was stuffed onto the device, and as soon as you try to tear off paper, the entire roll rolls away...for two holders. Next, I realized a needed to wipe down the bathroom counter because it still had gunk from the prior guests...then I began to notice too many other things to count...needless to say, we won't stay again.

    « What a pleasant surprise »

    Traveled to Cali again for appt at UCI Med Center and decided to stay closer to the beach and the airport. When I drove up to this place I seriously wasn't sure, especially traveling alone, but my fears were averted upon entering and receiving the warm greeting from Cody at the front desk. The place was very clean, which extended to the rooms. My room even smelled clean. (I HATE funky smell, from funk, weird cleaners or otherwise.) I also had fresh apples, FREE bottled water and fruit and nut bars waiting for me in my room. The hotel offers free on demand TV and movies, and I got to catch up on Insurgent, which I hadn't seen yet. Breakast was included and offered cereals, hot food like belgian waffles, potatoes, bacon, eggs, pastries, coffee, teas, juices. The place was also full by the day after I arrived, so they must be doing something right! I made it to UCI in about 15 to 20 minutes, down to the beach in about 7 to 10, and to the airport in about 8. That. Was. Awesome. Wouldn't you know it? "Cody" was there to check me out and bid me adieu when I left. This is a hidden gem.

    Everything at the hotel is awesome.... Everyone was really helpful and went out of their way to make the stay really nice... I needed to be at the airport at 5:30 am their Shuttle starts running at like 8 and they had someone come in just for me to make sure I made it...... The restaurant on the other hand is lacking management I walked in stood there for a few minutes no one showed up so I took a stroll into the kitchen looking for someone.... finally got seated and took extra long to get my food.... The food wasn't bad they just need someone that can run the place....

    We stayed overnight to attend an event close by. Check in was very pleasant. Internet and breakfast was included. Internet was very good but breakfast was a little disappointing because the eggs were cold and they were out of bacon and sausage. Overall, our stay was pleasant. The room had a comfortable recliner chair which is a treat at a hotel. The freeway is very close and you can hear some noise but didn't affect sleep.

The hotel is near the airport but not too close. It is centrally located to Newport Beach and Costa Mesa. If you don't want to be on the beach or in the other high priced areas, it is a good location.

    « Found my Spot! »

    Work takes me everywhere from east to west and I was on the west coast in Newport Beach and stumbled upon a quiet Hotel located on Newport blvd. The location was exactly what I was looking for. I was hesitant at first and decided to look around. I struck up a conversation with a local waitress from the restaurant. To my surprise she was the chef in the restaurant that was adjacent. She knew so much about the hotel that you would have thought she owned it. I was so impressed with her opinion of the hotel that I decided to stay. The hotel was exactly what she described. Excellent service from the front desk to the room was outstanding. The next day I had a wonderful breakfast and got the chance to thank her. Make sure to ask for Kathleen if you get the chance. I recommend this hotel absolutely for price and the quality service. Hands down the best bargain for business and most definitely for a vacation.

    I stayed in this hotel for a business trip and I was a little worried as I'd never stayed in a Best Western hotel and thought it a budget property. Since the reviews were good on Trip Advisor, I gave it a try and I wasn't disappointed. The staff were very friendly and the room was great. Lots of room and tasteful decoration along with a big comfy chair. There was also a fridge and microwave as well as a coffee maker in the room. A hot breakfast is included in your meal and there was AMPLE food for a breakfast that would certainly tide you over to supper!! I would stay here again.

I especially enjoyed the amazing breakfast that the served which has everything I could want including fresh pastries and sausage and eggs . I liked going there in the evening to have a reasonably priced meal in their attached café .

    Superb service with a smile. The room was very clean and tidy. We were out on business and every night we were so happy to come back to beautiful hotel with excellence all around us. We were very impressed with the complimentary breakfast every morning. The setup was very classy with a surprisingly delicious meal. I suggest the waffles. We met a fantastic group of people there. Jamie was serving us behind the cookers and Kathleen was cruising around making sure that everything was cleared off. Overall we think Best Western plus is by far one of the best hotels for the buck we have ever stayed at. Thanks again to all the staff.

    Beds are comfortable, rooms are super clean, staff is professional and attentive, breakfast is complimentary and terrific! And the best coffee I have ever had in a hotel - it beats Starbucks in my opinion. While it is near a highway and on a fairly major road, it was quiet. Even received a thank you from manager Naj thanking me for completing the Best Western survey! And the location was perfect for me! Just be careful and don't get on that Highway 73 - if you forget to pay the toll when you return home, the fine could be as high as $900!!!

    We were looking for a place on the beach in Newport Beach and came up empty, so we went a little further inland to Costa Mesa. Best Western has never appealed to us but we were anxious to check in somewhere. When we walked into the lobby we were immediately impressed. The front desk service was great, the facility was beautiful and our room was very nice. Free parking and an outstanding free breakfast were nice features too. The location was the only minor negative, but overall it was great. I even joined their loyalty program, so you know I plan to stay at another Best Western.
