    « Best value I ever have with Best Western »

    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.

    « California »

    We had a great time. The rooms were nice with 2 tvs and fridge. The breakfast was amazing. Very friendly staff. The hotel is a little out of the way but worth the drive. We always look for hotels that don't charge parking!

    « Good Rooms but need better Sofa Bed. »

    The property is clean and the staff at the front desk are very helpful. We checked in after 11PM and a gentlemen checked us in and he was very helpful. The room is clean and the beds are comfortable. The only thing that needs to be improve is the sofa bed in the living area. The foam is very thin and it's not comfortable.

    « Changes »

    The room we had was nice and unexpected to included a living room area, separated from the sleeping area. very comfortable and quiet area. Wifi was not always working ... appeared most of the time, only receiving a connection when we we out away from the property. Daily breakfast was disappointing. Toaster was not working. Scrambled eggs every morning were watery, hash browns were bland .. The workers appeared to be afraid, to even give you anything to eat. Could have been better tasting and better served as a buffet.

    « BEST Best Western near the beach! »

    Used this hotel for a University Oceanography Field Course. 3 nights with 13 rooms. Great location to get to Laguna Beach, Dana Point, and other nearby beach communities. Excellent hot breakfast by Miguel. Comfortable large double suites. Highly recommend it!

    « opinion »

    It was a lovely stay that was ideally located to my work. Easy access to everything I needed Even close to the ocean for a great day trip on my day off good restaurants everywhere and upscale shopping

    « Best Western Plus »

    Great location, clean room, great staff. Taking these surveys is the worst part of the stay. Not very pleased with having to write a 200 word essay. Can't get out of this section even when is says Skip this part. This could make me think twice about stayong sat this location again. Writing sa 200 worrd essay doeas not take a minute to complete. Again this is crazy.

    « Room was even Better than Expected »

    Huge Room, Great Staff. Perfect experience from reservation to check-out. when I arrived, my room wasn't quite ready. After traveling all day, I was hungry and decided to grab a bite. When I got back, I had been upgraded and was put into a very large suite! WOW

    « Great value for money »

    This hotel offers great value for the price. If you want a hotel with easy access to Lake Forest, Laguna Beach, Irvine, Mission Viejo, this is the place to stay. The hotel is very close to Irvine Spectrum and easy access to freeway Interstate 5. The rooms are nice and have all you need. The staff is friendly and the breakfasts are good.

    « Good stay »

    The room was pleasant. Internet and TV quality was passable but not excellent. Breakfast variety was standard but prepared as you watched. The facility is well maintained but age is starting to show in the furnishings.

  • 4

    We once again had need of a room for a overnight stay near Irvine. As we have done on three other occasions this year, we picked this Best Western. The rooms are very spacious, but the odd thing is that the "vanity" is built into the chest of drawers in the bedroom. This means that if one is an early riser and wants to shave, brush teeth, etc., the other party is going to be disturbed and probably get up even if they'd like to sleep longer. On the other hand, there is a "sitting room" which can be closed off by a pocket door, so that one can read, watch TV or work on a laptop without disturbing someone in the bedroom. So, please be advised.

    « Business Stay »

    Everything was great except the wifi. Could not get a strong enough signal to get any work done. I was however, in the top floor in the corner of the hotel, that may be the reason. The room however was great! It had a spiral staircase going to second bed! The breakfast in the morning completely surprised me!

    « Not as clean as it might appear »

    Spent one night here with family but cannot recommend. Sleeping on the sofa bed was like sleeping on a bed of springs. More concerning, the bottom of the sofa bed mattress was absolutely filthy. En route to the breakfast room in the morning, we came across a pillow outside that was soiled with upchuck. Not too appetizing. The pool was not heated sufficiently.

    « Much better than expected »

    Trying to find a hotel in California that is close to affordable is difficult at best. I'm used to traveling for business, and staying at Hilton, Marriott, Hyatt. I wasn't sure what to expect from a Best Western. The last time I stayed at one was when I was 10 traveling with my parents from Michigan to Florida. I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised. I am traveling with my wife and two daughters, 17 and 20. The area is very nice, the parking was plentiful and free. The lobby is nice, not huge, but nice. The desk staff was friendly. The room was a two queen room, the unexpected part was that there was an extra sitting room with a closable door. The bathroom was clean and updated. The breakfast was included, and offered both hot and cold choices. Acceptable food, not great but not terrible. Our price was about 100 per night, a good value for Orange county California. All in all, i was impressed. Not sure of all the differences, but this is a Best Western Plus. I might have to start looking into Best Western hotels more often. I would be comfortable staying here as a family or on business. There a few mom and pop restaurants that are two minutes walking distance, lots of places within 5 minutes driving time. The Wi-Fi is also included. All in all a nice place to stay at a reasonable price, in a safe area. I would definitely recommend staying here.

    « Good value »

    I love this hotel because it's like a suite with a separate living room and bedroom. There's a tv in the living room and bedroom so if someone wants to watch a different channel they can. The only thing to know is to request a "quiet" room because the hotel is near a freeway and the freeway noise can be loud.

    « Not one of the best BW hotels »

    This hotel is okay but, as others have stated, it needs a general upgrade. Front desk was helpful. There was a very classy, different "sink" but there was no stopper to allow water to accumulate therein. I liked that there was good hot water, which is not always the case in hotels. TP was only one-ply, which was disappointing for a BW hotel. A good thing is that the hotel is away from busy streets and freeways.

    « Good Breakfast..large room »

    But old building and old furniture. They do keep the property clean and it does offer good value...but it is not 4*. A solid 3*. Has an outdoor pool and Jacuzzi ...good parking...spacious room with old furniture but updated shower.

    « Good hotel, but... »

    Great sized rooms--with suites even! Great breakfast, pool and hot tub. But the carpets desperately need to be replaced in the rooms. Make sure they've been replaced before you stay in a particular room.

    « Business stop »

    The layout is interesting. I don't like that the hotel is outside and not inside and for a plus I assumed it would be enclosed. The rooms are beyond spacious! It's really decent with a refrigerator and mocrowave. There are vending and ice machines. Close to several restaurants that you can walk to. Complimentary breakfast is served.

    « Big Size room with easy access road »

    This hotel is located at the side of a freeway, so it's easily accessible to public road. However, the hotel can hardly be seen from the road. The parking area is very wide, and access to the room can be done via several alternative. So the hotel offer a lot privacy. The room is quite big size, there are 2 big separate bed plus one living room with 2 LED television sets. I guess 4 people can stay in this room comfortably. The only note is the carpet on the floor, which I think make my foot dusty. The other problem that I have is the breakfast, as for my 6 days stay, the menu never change. There are no other choice available at surroundings during the breakfast time, the only one is McD drive through (only) which is located 2 blocks from hotel.

    « Good Stay »

    Very comfortable stay with good amenities and professional staff. The hotel is close to I-405 on/off exits, restaurants and fast food places. Shopping is nearby, the Mission Viejo mall. Ample parking and well lit at night.

    « Bad Experience at Best Western - Irvine Spectrum in Lake Forest »

    Have stayed at a few Best Western Hotels in the past which were O.K., and decided to book with this hotel for a four night stay and was very disappointed with the quality of the room and the noise. Upon entering the room there was an old damp smell and which did not go away. The bed pillows had a strong odor and made for a bad nights sleep. My wife took bath towels and covered up the pillows but the smell was still there. In the room next door the talked on the back balcony until midnight and were smoking which we could smell. The straw that broke the camels back was while taking a shower the next morning the tub was filling up with water and would not drain. I called the Hampton Inn and space was available then checked out of this Best Western Hotel. Would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

    « Problems »

    We booked 2 queen beds and when we arrived they didn't have the room. But they gave us a room with king bed + broken pull out sofa. Very uncomfortable to sleep in. That was the only room they had. We couldn't leave it was very late a the kids were tired. I expect a lot more for what we paid and from Best Western. That's why we booked with them-- "for comfort"

    « Great Stay at Best Western Plus »

    Very good stay in a nice neighborhood with a dog. We stayed in a pet room. It is great that this brand accommodates dogs and let's you leave them in the room as long as they are in their carrier, so you can go out to dinner. A very clean place, the pool was sparkling, they have a small self-serve laundry facility and we heard no noise from the neighbors, next door. Also, the comfort of the beds were excellent! Parking is free. Non-smoking property. Very affordable. Location right near the I-5 Fwy and Lake Forest exit.

    « More like a Best Western than a Best Western Plus »

    Had problems with AC and noise. Don't get a room over the parking garage entrance. Noise was solved by a room move, but AC was the same in both rooms. Location is a little odd, with some vacant buildings around the hotel. A GREAT Italian restaurant is within walking distance.

    « Would be great if the service was better »

    Although the appearance of the hotel was acceptable and would have been a delightful stay, the service my family received was unacceptable. The sheets had not been cleaned on one of our beds and the process to receive new sheets was unbelievable! Upon informing the front desk staff of the unclean sheets we were told that they were unwilling to bring new sheets to our room and that we would have to come down to the front desk in order to receive clean sheets. After walking down to the front desk, I was then told that they did not have any clean sheets and would have to go to housekeeping to locate sheets and covers for our room. A few moments later I received a phone call stating the front desk clerk was unable to get into the housekeeping room and was therefore unable to provide clean linens to us for the night. After going back and forth with the clerk about not receiving the accommodations I paid for I was given the option to sleep on towels. YES, TOWELS! Totally unacceptable and unbelievable. I then requested a different room and was told that no rooms were available and that I could sleep in a king room but would have to pay for it! After refusing to pay for an additional room and telling the clerk that I am not receiving the service or accommodations I paid for, she finally went to another room and removed the sheets and covers from another bed and brought them to our room for use (although, according to her there were no other queen rooms available). I don't know if we received clean sheets or someone else's dirty sheets, but the stay went from being pleasant and enjoyable to being a nightmare!

    « Nice stay »

    We liked the 2-room suite layout of all the rooms. 2 dbl beds and TV next room sofa bed and armchair and TV, fridge and microwave. Good hot breakfast. Good A/C. Little over $100/night plus exorbitant local tourist tax. Close to Disney land and beaches.

    « Great Place »

    This was the third time we have stayed at this same hotel. The service is great, it is clean, and in a safe area, and is close to everything. We used the pool and had the breakfast, we total love this place. I arrived early to check in and our room was not yet ready the clerk took my phone and called me as soon as it was ready, great service. We also requested a late check out, and they gave us that as well. This is the third time we have chosen to stay at this same hotel and each time we have been very pleased.

    « best breakfast at any BW we have ever stayed! »

    We enjoyed the fresh sight seen, breakfast prepared out front. Liked the options. Hard boiled eggs would have been a nice touch and perhaps brown sugar for oatmeal. But other than that, it was quick, hot and met our needs, plus very clean and friendly staff. Room was spacious, clean. Bed mattresses and sofa bed mattress both need renewing to something less squishy and more support. Lots of space.

    « Awful »

    I didn't enjoy staying there at all. The hashbrowns were burnt everyday for breakfast. They need to have more than 1 waffle maker. The carpet and furniture in the hotel was dirty. The people at the front desk were nice but they need to clean the rooms better.

    « Good location - Amenities need work »

    We stayed in a room with two queen bed and an additional sofa bed. The room itself was quite comfortable. But there are some quirks hence the low rating. One queen bed was so much against the wall that it was difficult to access it. The quality of the Soap and toilet paper was very very poor. It seemed like a 1?? motel. (Totally not suitable for the $170 price we paid). All rooms were on the 2nd or 3rd floor or 4th with a very slow elevator to access it. The stairs were also very strange. you climb from 1st to 2nd and the stairs from 2nd to 3rd floor are completely hidden without any signs. Breakfast was fairly decent. Most probably will not stay here again. Disappointed with the quality of this one.

    « Coach driver to the Stars »

    Nice hotel, nice rooms. Balconies, large suites..and pretty quite. Front desk got us an early check in quick..VERY PLEASED with this place..I will definitely stay here again. Also plenty of shops and restaurants near by..I heard Sammy's Original was the restaurant to go to..looks packed..thus good food

    « Beautiful rooms, amazingly comfortable beds, nice breakfast!! »

    This is a well-designed property. The rooms are really quite beautiful and spacious. The beds were supremely comfortable, and for breakfast, they had someone cooking everything fresh right there and serving it up. This could make the line a little slow, but it was worth it. We were there to visit the beaches, so this wasn't the closest property, but I would do it again.

    « Seriously disatisfied!!! »

    I called ahead to request a ground floor room. They don't have any, but I wasn' told this!!! I have dogs, so this was a serious inonvenience. Especially since they put us on the third floor. One of my dogs was terrified of the elevator. Breakfast was crummy. A guy cooks bland, scrambled eggs...and fake bacon. I paid $188...what a rip -off!!! That's with a discount!!! Maybe they can get rid of the huge carpet stain...that was there upon arrival.

    « Hotel Stay »

    Showed up late due to length of travel. When we arrived our family was upgraded to a Suite with Loft (no extra charge) Great extra space and privacy for us and our older son. Breakfast was cooked to order buffet style plenty of items on the menu as well as fresh fruit.

    « AC not working...88 degrees the 1st night »

    Other than the fact that the AC wasn't working the 1st night and the room was 88 degrees AND that the 11 pm shift worker was extremely rude when I kindly and patiently asked if there was any other rooms available, The stay was fine. I was not upset when I talked to him, but he went defensive and rude immediately and that is what frustrated me. I realized there wasn't much anyone could do at 11 pm on a Friday night to fix and AC, but I did want some attempt at a solution of how we could get some sleep. Eventually he offered to bring up a fan "when I have time", but I pushed to wait for him as we were past wanting to get some sleep. Everyone else at the hotel was friendly and helpful. The hot breakfast (made in front of you by a chef), was a pleasant and wonderful surprise. I'm attempting to rate this fairly had the night shift worker not been SO rude and had I not had a choice but to finish out my 2 night stay. The sleep quality is put at poor as the room was simply TOO hot at 88 degrees to get much sleep.

    « Unfreindly staff »

    Some of my shopping items were taken from the room and hotel staff reacted recklessly upon reporting the problem. The bathroom door was broken also. Managers and front desk staff extremely careless and they didn't help with the problem.

    « nice spot »

    Good breakfast . Friendly staff . Nice comfy rooms for the price point . AC worked very well . Loved the Orange water in the lobby . We had a pleasant stay . Im just typing this to meet the 200 letter min .

    « A clean, modern, well appointed hotel »

    This Best Western Plus is a modern and well appointed place that's conveniently located near the 5 and 405 fwy's and pretty close to both the Irvine Spectrum and Irvine Meadows Ampitheater. Most rooms feature several nice features, most prominently a separate bedroom and "living area" great if someone wants to rest but others want to stay up. Another feature are in-room safes which I always appreciate when I travel. This hotel has an excellent breakfast with a large breakfast room and a cook on duty to make sure all your hot items are fresh. A great selection of cold items as well. We were super lucky to get a random upgrade and ended up in one of the multi room (suites). More of a loft that could have easily slept 5 or 6 total ( with a a sleeper sofa). Anyhow, it was quite nice. Not perfect, it's not the Ritz Carlton, but it's a heck of a lot more that you can expect for the price. The staff was excellent as well. From the front desk clerks to the breakfast room cook and attendant. Everyone was incredibly courteous and helpful.

    « Review »

    We only stayed one night - the staff was great, hotel was clean and bed comfy. The breakfast was a hot cooked breakfast. I would recommend it. We received a AAA discount so the price was right. It was perfect overnight stay for where we were headed.

    « Good if passing by or one night stay »

    Booked a room at the last minute for 4th Juy weekend and had no problems. We were driving from Grand Canyon to Laguna Beach but laguna hotels were too pricie so we stayed at this one 20 minutes away with access to Walmart by Irvine and it worked out as far as location because we stocked up with items at Walmart and then headed to the beach. Staff was pleasant, we arrived late around 4 AM, I called to give them aheads up and had no problems, check in was a breeze. Suite rooms are roomy enough for about 5-6 ppl even have pocket doors for privacy (2 doube Queen beds on one side/1 sofa bed with desk TV and mini fridge on other side of pocket doors). Brekfast was good but lines were super long (7-10 AM) becuase cook prepares and serves food (hash potatoes, scramble eggs, sausage, bacon) at the same time. Milk on jars for cereal dispensers, waffle makers but you must wait your turn, yogurt, muffins, coffee, juice, oatmeal with toppings. You can eat inside the breakfast area or you can eat by the pool tables...did not use the pool. Elevators to second floor rooms (outdoors) Looks like motel outside BUT they did good remodeling in and out. No parking at the time we arrived, but front desk said it was safe to park in extended parking ....they had security guard in parking area. Modern decor. Would stay again overnight if trying to get to Laguna Beach in the future.

    « Great Hotel »

    Stayed here for business with 4 of my associates, we all agreed, Friendly staff, nice clean rooms, comfortable beds, It was nice having a hot breakfast! I would definitely stay here again for business or pleasure!

    « Mixed Impressions »

    Stayed here while participating in USBC CA Women's State Tournament at Lake Forest Lanes. Liked the warm welcome by staff, the covered parking, clean lobby, spacious room with pocket door to separate the sleeping area from the living area, and hot breakfast items freshly prepared and variety of cereals and beverages. Shower head was good quality. Microwave and small refrigerator were helpful. Was disappointed with the icy-cold swimming pool and very lukewarm spa water, as well as barely-absorbent, scratchy pool towels. Exercise room HVAC system remained at 78 degrees despite repeated attempts to lower temp so room would be comfortable while exercising. Additionally, no full-length mirror in room, so applying makeup was difficult. Horizontal mirror was mounted behind large t.v. monitor and above-counter sink, blocking close access to mirror. Coffee maker adequate; only for single servings. Used in-room meal delivery service. Food was good, but brochure incorrectly stated delivery charge, and meal came from Ameci without utensils or napkins. Called service to complain; was told to ask hotel front desk for some.

    « 1:16 PM »

    Large room with pocket door available to separate the sleeping area and bathroom from the living area. Very comfortable bed. No full-length or vanity mirror. Sink and television screen were situated in front of mirror, so was difficult to see to apply makeup. Pool water very icy; spa lukewarm. Scratchy pool towels; hardly absorbent. HVAC in exercise room did not adequately cool the room. Hot breakfast items were prepared on site. Cold cereals and bread products were available, also.

    « dont stay »

    This hotel is one of the worst hotels you could possible stay at it stinks and all its furniture in the rooms are stained and dirty. Needs a complete gut out . Don't be fooled by the great price and breakfast it is truly a nightmare to stay at. Most of there guests are construction workers so if you have a family this is defiantly not the environment you would want them in.

    « Great hotel »

    I highly recommend this hotel. Clean spacious rooms. The staff is very helpful and pleasant. The breakfast has something for everyone and easily saves you $60 for a family of 4. they have cereal, yogurts, toast, muffins, waffle machine as well as a cook that prepares eggs, hash browns, bacon and sausage. This hotel is close to Irvine Spectrum for shopping and close to the Irvine Meadows Amphitheater so if your going to a concert this is the place to stay.

    « Average Place, Average Stay »

    Needed a place to stay while working as an Election Inspector. Stayed here before to enjoy Sammy's Original without having to worry about a DUI. (they're REALLY strict in Lake Forest!) Stayed here for the Election and got to enjoy Sammy's as well. Good value. Good location.

    « Smokey Room »

    Very unsatisfied as I was told upon check in that I would be staying in a smoking designated room. I do not smoke and have allergies from smoke. I do not know of any other hotels that have hotel rooms designated "smoking". I travel quite a bit for work and this was a first. Terrible nights sleep as I had to breath the smoky air all night and it got into my clothes, etc.

    « Great value, comfort and outstanding breakfast! »

    Comfortable, clean, spacious room with modest decor. The home-cooked breakfast is terrific. Secure location and surrounding neighborhood. Good access to multiple coastal areas, < 30 minutes. Staff is exceptionally helpful and nice.

    « Clean, comfortable, spacious »

    Stayed here for an overnight visit. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was very spacious with the bedroom separate from the living room and it had a jacuzzi tub in the bedroom. There was also a coffee maker, small fridge and microwave. The bed was comfortable. The complimentary breakfast was better than most. As a solo female traveler I felt very safe staying here. My only negative comment is that there was the smell of stale cigarette smoke when the air conditioner turned on and this was a no smoking room. I don't know if it was because it was on the top floor and a "corner" room but a fellow traveler stayed here the same night in a different room and did not notice any stale cigarette smell. I did bring this to the attention of the front desk as I did not want to get charged for smoking in the room (I am not a smoker). I would stay here again and recommend it to family and friends with the proviso not to stay in room 410.

    « Good stay in Lake Forest »

    We stayed 2 nights at the end of our trip here. Convenient location to the John Wayne/ orange county airport. About a 12 minute drive in the early morning on a Saturday. Rooms have exterior entrances and look to be updated and are suites with seperate living areas. Full breakfast was free with our room and was served by an on-site chef. Our stay was good. We had 2 concerns with the property. The shower was very hot and shower temperature was temperamental. Took some patience to get it set right. Also the main elevator in the lobby was a bit scary to ride in and made noises and jerked at times. Outside of that the rest of our stay was fine.

    « Group trip »

    I booked 10 room for my bowling group. As a hole everyone was very satisfied with the hotel except for the sink in the bedroom. The hot breakfast was very good. The location is quite good and with-in 15 minutes of the Orange County Airport. If I have a complaint, it would be the effort needed to book and confirm my group. It took several call to finally get a conformation.

    « Great Place To Stay »

    Great people work here, friendly, helpful, courteous! Rooms are very comfortable and accommodating. The breakfast is always hot and ready. I am very satisfied with everything here, almost prefer this better than home. LOL You can't go wrong when you stay here. John and his staff are extremely helpful and accommodating anytime we need something. Thank you.

    « Pretty Nice All-Around »

    The lobby area is very nice. The breakfast is the best I've experienced in a Best Western. They have a very nice guy who makes scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage and hash browns fresh, plus cereal, juice, toast, muffins, waffles, etc. Pool area is small, but nice. Bed was comfortable. Parking is very tight-- almost touching the car next to yours. I guess that's normal for southern California. The room and hallways were older and worn, but they were clean. Overall, a good experience at this Best Western. I would stay here again-- and probably will.

    « Could use some improvement »

    Staff was great and helpful. Pool needs to be cleaned, carpeting in room needs cleaning. "balcony" had view of torn out parking lot next door. Beds hard and left us achy every day, after tossing and turning all night. Furniture in Living room outdated. Had trouble with Fridge freezing things and sink didn't drain for 2 days, they fixed things when requested. Housekeepers left notes in door at 8:00 if they came by and we had do not disturb on door, we had to ask that they come back when we left so they could clean room. They should do check-outs first, then rooms for people staying longer. We were looking forward to breakfast to save money during trip, but went only once because it was disappointing. Not set up as "buffet", but one guy is cooking and serving too, by the time you waited and got thru line and made toast or something, everything was cold. Coffee was awful. Hot tub jets don't all work, and too few to relax. On the plus side, it's a pretty good location and close to highways and the front desk staff was extremely helpful.

    « Dirty, Old, Beat Up »

    If you read my reviews you know I very rarely slam any hotel, but in the case of this place, the owners need to hear this loud and clear: this place is filled with tired, beat up, old rooms that are not being cleaned properly. I saw two different rooms and I couldn't spend more than a few minutes in each, they were that bad. The couches and other furnishings look like they'd been purchased during the Reagan administration, with stains and tears in the fabric that are ugly and embarrassing. I've been in far less expensive hotels that were better than this place. Sure, the rooms are very large (suites really) and the breakfast ample and the staff are nice, but nothing compensates for old, beat up, dented, stained, torn, ugly furniture and beds that sag and creak from overuse. Everything here feels really old, tired, beat up and worn out. I'd swear the filters in the AC units haven't been changed in years. Dear Owners - time to go get a major loan and renovate the whole place from top to bottom, either that or give up all of your business to the very nice Holiday Inn across the street. Seriously awful.

    If you can see this much filth on a chair, imagine what you can't see. The vacuum lines on the disgusting chair is equivalent to putting lipstick on a pig. Pass. The room is musty. The cleanliness is sketchy as you can see by the furnishings. You enter rooms from the outside. Definitely motel and not hotel.

    « Great place to stay BEST breakfast »

    This place has a GREAT hot breakfast that includes sausage, eggs, hashbrowns, waffles and juice. it was a big hit with my kids. The staff was friendly and kind. The rooms could use a little updating, but overall it was a very good value. Beds are comfortable and the mirrors are huge with plenty of room for a family of 5. The sink is outside the bathroom (it really doesn't matter) and the couch is a pull out bed. It was so nice to have an additional little room with a couch and TV. That makes TWO televisions for one room. our kids loved it.

    « Nice Location »

    Good hotel, clean, nice location. Located near the Irvine Spectrum and Irvine Meadows Amphitheater. Room was clean but could use a little updating. Not a lot of amenities but for a short trip it was perfect. Thought it was a bit high priced for a Best Western but it is Orange County.

    « Home Away From Home »

    My self and family enjoying staying at this location. We get treated as if we were at home. The staff always go a bit further in making sure my family enjoys their stay. I always try to stay here when I'm in the lake forest area. The surroundings are calm and very nice. The pond right down the streets is a nice brisk walk.

    « Good Quality »

    The hotel was clean and rooms were large. Staff in general were helpful and kind. Michelle saved the day, great customer service. Hotel is conveniently located and property is kepted very clean. Would stay again.

    « Best Best Western so far »

    I have stayed at Best Western in a number of states and this one is the best so far. Big and clean rooms, great breakfast for free and quite rooms. The only thing is the bathroom sink is in the bedroom and not the bathroom - a bit awkward.

    « Extra towel? »

    Place was a little hard to find with car gps. Had to circle around twice. Called for extra towel. Waited a whole hour. No towels. Called again front desk asked if I ever got my towels, told her I wait an hour, said the person that was to had brought them already left and I'd had to go get them myself. Could of told me that so I didn't have to wait and wasted my time.

    « Nice Modern up to date room in older property »

    Older property with up to date room. Nice linens, free internet works well. Slow elevator. Nice pool. Convenient to shopping, restaurants. Around 15 minutes to John Wayne airport. HD flat screen TV with standard def analog reception.

    « Smoking Rooms :( »

    You think you're staying in a nonsmoking room, but clearly the room has experienced smokers. The address is wrong! It takes you on a right turn from "boeing" drive when it actually is a left. The lack of windows makes you feel like you're in a motel as opposed to a hotel :(

    « good quality for price! »

    clean, friendly and affordable! Location was close to nearby attractions and shopping. a few exits away from the Irvine spectrum with movie theatre, dining, excellent shopping, etc. I def. recommend this hotel for the price and comfort. The beds were very comfy and pillows were like sleeping on air.

    « Good Value for Families »

    This was our second stay at this hotel. It is at a great location next to the Irvin Spectrum Mall and close fairly close to the UCI campus. It has been a great place for our family to stay and relax while visiting my daughter that goes to the University of California Irvine.

    « Great complimentary breakfast and dog friendly »

    When we checked in, registration was quick and person very friendly. Room was very nice and we were able to bring our dog. Breakfast each morning was hot and tasty. Their cook has been there for over 20 years and friendly too. Will definitely be back

    « Horrible hotel to stay »

    I have stayed 4 nights at this hotel in February and I was horrified: the carpet in my room was stained and my room had a horrible smell. The sofa and the whole furniture was in terrible condition. The linen were visibly not ironed - at least. The breakfast room also had all chairs stained and old, and the offer of food was very limited. Staff is unfriendly and not professional. This place is definitely not worth 110$/night. We were 5 people from my company and we are issuing a complaint with the agency so that nobody from our staff will stay again here.

    « Great place to stay »

    We come to this area about once a month for business. We have tried several hotels but will now just book the best western. It's comfortable, clean, the staff is nice, has a pool, And a breakfast. The rooms have a sitting area And a bedroom area both areas have tvs. It is fairly renovated. The weird part is the sink is outside of the bathroom but that's okay. They also have fridges and microwaves. We tried the pool but it is not heated and unbearably cold. The hot tub is hot, hot. Too hot when the sun is shining but perfect at 9 pm. We booked this last minute president's day weekend and we were lucky to get a room. We got there a bit early and they let us check right in. The area is perfect for lots of restaurants. We drove next exit down and found a Walmart to get some snacks. All in all for our purposes of business we are happy with this hotel and will be returning.

    « Excellent Service »

    We received excellent service on our brief stay with extended family after returning from a cruise to Mexico. The pool and spa were very much needed and appreciated. Very good area restaurants and a good hot meal included for breakfast.

    « Nice Staff, Dated Hotel, Sketchy People Hanging Out in the Lobby »

    My husband and I spent one night here, while attending to business in the area. The front desk staff was very friendly and worked hard to make sure that we were happy. They allowed us to check-in early. We had a room on the third floor at the end of the hall. We did hear noise above us, but it wasn't too bad. The room was very large, with a separate sitting area- nice to have, especially as we were working in the room. It looks like they've tried to keep the area updated with newish furniture, but it still feels old and a bit shabby. What would keep us from staying here again, is the sketchy people that always seemed to be hanging out in the lobby. I'm not sure if they were actually staying at the hotel, but they made us feel uncomfortable. It was the same with the car park. We were nervous to leave our car outside. The neighborhood itself isn't bad, but it does seem like this hotel might attract a rough crowd. It was cheap. We skipped the free breakfast to go somewhere local, so I can't comment on it. Again, I'd like to reiterate that the staff was very friendly. Like my review? Check out my blog!

    « Great experience »

    I was pleasantly surprised by the level of professionalism of all the staff. Every one was friendly, helpful, and provided 5-star service. The entire week was hassle-free, every detail was handled, and I felt welcomed. I will definitely stay here again the next time I am on town.

    « good value, convenient location and room access »

    This hotel offers spacious suites with views of the central courtyard. We had a suite with a king bed and separate living room with pull-out sofa. There were 2 TVs so this would also be a good choice for families with children.

    « Here due to death in the family »

    Very kind, professional and accommodating staff. Impressive! Clean environment. Passed on the so-so breakfast. Very close to 5 freeway so noisy outside, but room was reasonably quiet with the door shut.

    « great hotel !! »

    an extremely friendly, family , safe feeling etc hotel. exceptionally friendly staff. if our adventures take us to that area again we'd definitely stay at this same hotel. extremely comfortable. great breakfast too

    « Large rooms »

    Really large 2 queen room with outer room that had a sitting area, fridge and microwave. Seemed clean enough. Good room for the price. Breakfast was well stocked with the usual carb heavy fare. Ample parking. Had a balcony looking out to another office building.

    « Nice Stay »

    Stayed here for 2 nights with 3 kids while visiting area attractions. The room is as others have posted nicely appointed but the bathroom sink is embedded in the bedroom dresser/console unit directly in front of the bed which is plain weird. Our room had a fully enclosed balcony that faced an office building (enclosed by a 6' cement wall) and no patio chairs. The patio door was unlocked when we checked in. Glad I checked it. Aside from that I was really impressed with the space in the room. Our room had a separate sitting area and pocket door to separate the sitting area from the bedroom and a tv in both rooms which was nice. Full hot breakfast on the weekend was nice but on Monday it was unappealing and made me sick. The hot tub was nice but the pool is unheated and too cold to use in the evening/at night. I was concerned about parking but was able to park my oversize vehicle (F350 Dually) with no problems. There were several restaurants within walking distance of the hotel and I felt safe in the neighborhood. Overall we had a nice stay for the price.

    « Comfortable stay at a reasonable price. »

    Except for an issue with sporadic phone ringing, very comfortable room, very good breakfast. Staff was pleasant, and ck in/ck out were painless. I would definitely return, and recommend it to our friends.

    « Well situated mid-priced hotel off I-5 »

    The BW Irvine is well situated just off the 1-5/I405 split near El Toro road, close to multiple restaurants and lots of shops. It has nice facilities, a good-value breakfast, and excellent wi-fi connections in the rooms. The pool is situated in the center of the hotel. This is a PLUS brand of Best Western and it meets all the standards. We had a corner room/suite, which was comfortable.

    « Excellent, would stay again! »

    This place was wonderful. The room was huge with two TV's and two rooms. My only two gripes are that the bathroom did not have a fan so when someone showered you had to open the window or be suffocated by the moisture in the air and the sheets did not have corners, they were just flat sheets so by the middle of the night I was sleeping on the mattress *shudder*. The staff was friendly and helpful and the breakfast was fantastic. They actually had a cook serving you eggs, hash browns and sausage. The waffle mix was out and I had asked for more and so had another kid shortly after I had asked and it didn't get filled until about 20 minutes later, was glad I had moved on to something else. Close to a lot of attractions. Would stay here again.


    This is the second time we've stayed at this Best Western. The great part is its close proximity to central Orange County and Interstates 5 and 405. It's "freeway close" as we say in SoCal. Despite the nearness of the freeway, even the rooms facing the freeway are well-insulated and quiet. The room is divided into a sitting area and a bedroom/bathroom, with a panel sliding door in between. The odd thing is that the bathroom sink is built into the bedroom dresser, while the shower and toilet are in a separate room. This means that when you're finished showering in the morning, you must turn on the light above the sink to shave, brush teeth, etc., thereby disturbing your partner, should they still be trying to sleep. It wouldn't have been that hard to simply extend the wall between the bathroom and bedroom to create a conventional bathroom, albeit a small one, but it's obviously too late to do a major remodel like that, so you just have to deal with it. The other thing we noticed on this second visit is that the refrigerator is placed inside a closed cabinet in the TV credenza. When we first opened the cabinet door to place the food we had brought for the stay, the exhaust from the compressor had made the exterior of the refrigerator warm to the touch and had also affected the coldness inside. So, for the duration of our stay, we left the cabinet door open, so that the refrigerator didn't overheat either outside or inside. Most hotels do not have a door enclosing the refrigerator, so this was another design flaw. Aside from those issues though, the hotel is fine and we'll be staying there again next week, due to its proximity to the eye surgery clinic where I'm having my other cataract removed.

    « Nice stay, gross couch »

    We stayed here for 3 nights stayed in smoking room, we know they are usually not as nice but the coach in this room was nasty, we were actually afraid to sit on it. Everything else about the room was pretty nice, they jut need to get a new coach and chair the pics are of the stained gross couch, I would stay again but only if they get a new couch and chair

    « Good Stay »

    Overall a very good stay, The room is so big, had a bedroom and also had a living room. Both had tvs. Very clean. Bed is hard and firm. Breakfast was very good. Worth staying and will consider for staying again.

    « An honest review take what you need and leave the rest! »

    Pros- Clean room and property, nice breakfast with hot items but they do not change so they become boring after a few days, nice area, clean pool/Jacuzzi, free wifi worked pretty well. Cons- sink is inside room literally in same area as your bedroom television, parking is very tight spaces and limited so during peak times I'm sure you'd have trouble with parking although we did not, the staff is not very friendly but not rude they just do their job nothing more do not expect a smile or good morning, the balcony advertised is simple an area you can walk out onto that has 7 foot high concrete wall surrounding so it is somewhat private but has no view whatsoever so do expect to sit out here and have your morning coffee unless you'd like to feel like you're getting your hour of yard time in jail lmao also on that note I should say this place on the outside kind of looks like a jail/prison just painted and prettier in a way Lol. Overall I would stay again if it was simply for sleeping and I got a good rate again. It was clean, safe and had a decent free breakfast the rest really didn't matter a whole lot to me.

    « good room, cleaning staff, not so good front desk »

    Room was spacious, a bed room and a living room, with a good size balcony. Everything was in working order and in good quality. All lights worked, central heating very efficient. Cleaning people do a good job upkeeping the room, and linens were all fresh and clean. If I rated based on the room and the cleaning staff, I would have given 9 out of 10. The problem is the front desk. They don't care. Plus, the access to the back side of the hotel is unhindered, at night, young people gather, walking around, could not tell which room they were going when I asked so that I could hit the corresponding floor button in the elevator. My suggestion is to stay the front side of the building for safety.

    « Great Room, Great Breakfast »

    We stayed here because I was having LASIK surgery nearby. The room was cool and quiet. It had a separate living room with a sliding door which allowed me to sleep peacefully after surgery while my boyfriend could still watch television in the living room. We had breakfast both mornings we were there. It was delicious! Everyone was friendly and helpful. A really stressfree stay that helped with my recovery immensely. Also, close to fast food restaraunts which is a plus.

    « Spacious but odd »

    For under $100 we had a large two room suite with two large flatscreen TV. But the bedroom had a groovy bowl sink on top of the counter right next to the TV, which was blocking much of the mirror. The artwork was hung sideways and the hanging ceiling fixtures were strangely only inches from the ceiling. The king bed had full sized sheets and our window faced the elevator door. BUT it was a lot of space for the money and very convenient to the freeway and restaurants.

    « Fine for a quick, low budget stay »

    The location is convenient to the 5 freeway and offers a great central location to south OC. Because it is right next to the freeway, you will likely hear the freeway noise regardless of the room location. My room was on the side of the building farthest from the freeway, but I still heard the hum of the cars going by. The rooms must have been renovated recently - the furniture and design appeared modern. I was actually impressed by the style of the room for a Best Western. I really liked having a suite with a separate living area and 2 TVs. I found it odd that the bathroom sink was placed next to the TV in the bedroom. The only issue I had with my room was the level of noise - I could hear everything and anything happening in the adjacent rooms. The walls are so thin that I was actually able to follow the conversation happening in the room next to me, and was very clearly able to hear anyone walking by in the hallway or knocking on doors. I don't consider myself a light sleeper but found myself unable to fall asleep until my neighbors did, and I was woken up pretty early from the room on the opposite wall. I highly recommend earplugs. I didn't use the pool or jacuzzi but it looked nice and clean. It didn't get much sun at any point in the day, but if you're in OC you have ample access to beautiful beaches anyway. I did use the gym - it's small but was clean and did the job. There is one elliptical, one treadmill, one bike, a weight machine and tv. Breakfast is basic but solid. I liked having hot options besides the typical juice/coffee/danish/cereal you get elsewhere. Breakfast staff was very friendly and did a great job serving everyone quickly. Reception staff made checking in and out easy. They weren't overly friendly but I was totally fine with that - I was tired too! The patrons staying were mostly families and couples traveling for the Thanksgiving holiday. I'm not sure if that's typical outside of the holiday, but it was a pleasant surprise - there weren't any sketchy looking travelers that I've seen at other budget accommodations. There are a number of restaurants in the vicinity, a handful of which are walking distance - Panera, McDonalds, Buffalo Wild Wings and a local sandwich shop. Parking was free and conveniently located directly below the hotel. There were a few elevators in the building, one of which went directly down to the parking garage. My experience fell in line with the price point so my expectations were met; however, I will probably try another nearby hotel next time I am in the area.

    « Does not measure up to AAA 3 diamond rating »

    The appearance of the hotel is old and not kept up. The hallways have paint worn off, the carpets in the room look very dirty, the sofas look dirty, we had to spread a sheet on it before we sat down, the toilets have seen better days. In our case they did not bother to make up our room one day. The breakfast was okay.

    « Great Family Hotel »

    Lots of room for the whole family with separate living room and bedroom, 2 TV's, and a free breakfast is included. Friendly staff. Easy access to/from freeway, close to restaurants and shopping. Close to Disneyland and Knott's Berry Farm. Good value.

    « An adequate/good hotel, especially if you have pets »

    Stayed here while on Thanksgiving vacation. Traveled with our small dog, and this was the best value & closest to my parents house. It's an older don't expect 5-star amenities. But, if you're traveling with a pet, it's a good hotel and good quality for the money. The WiFi was adequate, and the free breakfast each morning was great (very good). They had a pool & jacuzzi, but it was outdoors, and a cold front moved in, so we weren't able to use it. Will definitely stay there again.

    « OK »

    Other than the not cleaning the room everything was fine. Breakfast was good. Location is good. We went to Disneyland and it was 20 min away and south coast plaza is close by. Restaurants are close by. Easy access to freeway.

    « one of the best Best Western »

    spend three night at this location part of ten night stay at different BWs in southern California, by far this was a best location, there is nothing bad to say about this hotel, just want to thank staff for specially kitchen for treating us so good, this took us about 25 min drive to Disneyland

    « Overall a good stay »

    Clean place and nice folks. only did a one niter but would go back to this place again next time i am in the area. The breakfast was nicer than most other BW breakfast with real bacon and sausage as well as real eggs cooked up.

    « Visit with Friends »

    The room was like a suite. The desk clerk, EMMA went beyond to assist with a place for us to have supper. The breakfast the next morning was cooked as you waited, with excellent eggs, bacon, potatoes. Coffee, juices and milk available with a large dining area. We would highly recommend this Best Western Plus for your stay.

    « Nice Basic Hotel »

    Nice business hotel. Internet was spotty, so tough to work. Breakfast opened when it wanted to open, and not at the posted 6:00 AM. Pool not heated, spa not working. Not what I usually get at a Best Western Plus.

    « Weekend Getaway »

    We always stay at this hotel and are happy here. Staff is friendly and rooms and hotel clean. Breakfast is good but sometimes the food is served to you cold could use alittle improvement in that area otherwise great place for the price to stay

    « Place to stay »

    Breakfast was the same all week. No change. Internet was horrible. Could hear people above walking. Lobby cleaner and more presentable then the rooms. Stayed for 4 nights 5 days. Hotel was by itself. Pool was clean. Maid service was well. Elevator inspection was out of date by over a year. Expired 09/14.

    « Customer Service »

    This hotel is easy to get to, and welcoming when you walk in. Room was a basic room, but everything was clean and in working order. Breakfast was the best one I've had for a Southern Calif Hotel. Plenty of Parking.

    « Decent place and good value. »

    It's hard to find an economical place to stay that's safe and not run-down in the LA/Orange County Area. You usually pay a lot or get something quite unpleasant. This place provides a reasonable compromise. The hotel exterior appearance is nice and the rooms are large. The AC works very well, and we know because it was unusually hot when we visited the area. The wi-fi speed was horrendously slow - in need of a major upgrade. The breakfast was complete and hearty. The man serving was either very shy or just not in a good mood. The couch in the room was in need of a steam cleaning.

    « Internet doesn't work well and no Fox News »

    The first day we were there, they had Fox News; every day after that it was gone - go figure. The internet was very bad and thus we probably wouldn't stay there again. The breakfast was great and the cook was fantastic!

    « Great Value Comfortable Room »

    The BW Plus in Lake Forest, CA was a great choice for our vacation stay. We spent most of our time visiting attractions around the LA area, so we were on the go constantly. Starting with an ample free breakfast first thing in the morning got each day off to a great start.

    « I would not recommend this hotel »

    This hotel is not worth the money that you are spending! Room smells, other guests were partying right outside our room, making it very uncomfortable for us and hotel did nothing to stop them the very next night. Sofa bed in room was filthy, and we just felt unsafe in room. Right across the was is a Holiday Inn that was so much better for the price.

    « Nice place will stay again. »

    We stayed here labor day weekend with another couple to attend a concert. We were surprised about the room, a dbl queen SMOKING it also had a siiting/living room with a sliding door for pivacy. The hotel was clean around the property as well as the room having no issues. Microwave refrigerator, 2 flat screen tv's and a sml balcony. The only wierd thing which i had read was the sink being in the bedroom. Really not an issue just weird at first. The front desk staff wasn't very responsive to requests i called and asked for more of something and never recieved them. I also called to report a broken pipe in the watering system, which was wasting water in Calif. this is an issue, the response was that there was nothing they could do about it at that time, at 11p.m. I know there are manual overrides in automatic systems the front desk person didn't want to deal with it was my impression he couldn't be bothered. He said he logged it and that was that. Hope it was attended to. The buffet breakfast was cooked to order omlettes, waffles, bacon, sausage, and pasteries that weren't from a week ago! That was nice, being it was a holiday weekend there was a lineup out the door. But it was worth waiting. Overall it was a nice stay and if i need to stay down there again i would stay here.

    « vacation »

    very clean, friendly ,comfortable, breakfast was fresh & very good. We would have stayed longer if we could. location was ok.t was a little hard to find, from were we where coming from, the value was great for a family of 6, 4 kids 2 adults, and for being so close to Laguna beach it was great.

    « Mission Viejo »

    This hotel is all Suites and clean and great place for couples or family of 4. Rooms are all newly remodeled and clean. Pool is great. I found the internet is available but its slow. Its close to Irvine as well as Mission Viejo.....very easy beach access.
