We wasn't at the hotel much, had other agendas, but not a hotel you'd wanna spend time at. Just use for sleeping and showering. Breakfast was a joke... coffee was nasty, we ended up going to gas station to get coffee.

This hotel is 7 miles from Laguna Beach, a mile from the Irvine Spectrum Center, and a quarter-mile from Laguna Hills …More
All I needed was a place to sleep for the night. The VERY small kitchen was nice - although I had no need for it. My room was handicap accessible so the shower was open and wide - no tub, just a shower head, drain, and a curtain. My ONLY complaint was that we couldn't use the air unit (because it was WAY too noisy) and our room was muggy. So we remedied that situation by opening the window to allow fresh air in. The front desk staff (Bryan) was very courteous and helpful!
Overall, I'd stay at this location again considering how affordable it was (110 w/ tax") and how close it is to the Newport/ Laguna beach area.
I only recommend it based off of convenience location wise. Nice service room looked nice u til you start to notice all the bugs. And the stuff that's suppose to be in the kitchen it's kinda inconvenient to call to ask for it. After a long day you don't want to do that. If it wasn't for the bugs I would have given this a 4 star rating. But I may be back, just because of location.

We stayed for three days at this hotel visiting famiIy. I was very disappointed in the WiFi service. Often, when logging on as a guest a "service not available" message would come up. Once, I was logged on and it knocked me off the system while I was using the system.
I called the front desk several times complaining and they always said the WiFi was working because the front desk was on the same WiFi system. Either their computer was hard wired or they were on a different WiFi. The only advice they gave me was to reboot my computer. That did work a few times.
In today's world, logging on to the Internet is more important than having a telephone. My disappoint rating was because of the WiFi
Beaches and LA area about 30 to 40 min on either side. Great area for nearby hiking, more of a residential area. Staff very friendly.
Breakfast buffet was free but a bit pedestrian.. Same thing every day...
Rooms clean and roomy
About halfway between Los Angeles and San Diego, Mission Viejo's dramatic landscape--it sits in the Saddleback Mountain Valley-- was sparsely settled until the 1960s, when it became one of the largest (and most successful) planned communities in America. Mainly residential, Mission Viejo retains its heritage with many Spanish mission-style homes.
