Wow I’ve stayed at probably 30 different Holiday Inn Hotels over the past 10 years and this was a great experience. Front desk staff member Frank was very kind. Hotel was recently redone because everything was super clean and new. Comfy bed too.

Hotel's Favourite
The rooms are spacious, had room to set up two work stations. House keeping was great and kept us supplied with coffee. The outdoor pool is heated and the Hot Tub was welcoming; even in 66 degree weather. Toast to Toast is a full service restaurant in the hotel, the Breakfast Buffet was fantastic. Management and staff were very friendly. The bar was the highlight, Lorrie was the best bartender!, keeping everything going in the evening. The manager made a great Bloody Mary for breakfast too.

I stayed at this hotel previously a few times and had nothing but positive experiences. However, I stayed at this hotel recently and it seems as though the hotel is going down the hill a bit. Positives: Rooms are clean, modern and spacious. Good location near the freeway and central to the OC. Front desk staff and housekeeping staff are nice and friendly. Especially friendly is the German fellow that works the front desk, really nice lad. Negatives: -Breakfast used to be complimentary, but not any longer. -Parking used to be free, but not any longer. -One of the front desk staff that is female is rude and unwelcoming. I don’t want to name her but I am sure management knows who it is. -I am IHG Platinum and was given a first floor room next to three exterior doors that were opened and closed all night by guests and loudly so, which made getting sleep difficult. Even the guest doors, the way the door locks work, need to be slammed to close properly so there is door noise day and night. -The AC units are extremely loud. -Many of the TV channels don’t work. -There was a pubic hair in the toilet. As I mentioned, I had awesome stays here in the past but it seems like management is allowing this property to slip, which is unfortuanate as I always liked this hotel and thought it was great value. I will stay here again, I just hope they tidy things up and improve.

I love the separation of the hot buffet and the cold buffet on the other side of the room. The dining area was so nice and roomy. You can have a view outside or you can sit inside. The room was awesome because I got the room where I can overlook my car in the back parking lot like I asked for. Amazing hospitality. My favorite was Gabriel who was the food service manager in the dining room. My room was 343. The front desk was amazingly helpful.

10/10 service all the way. I didn’t think I would be so impressed by how the employees treated us. I was able to get our room check in faster than anticipated. I was so exhausted from our trip here. I wasn’t sure how to work the AC and Bob was so quick to come assist in the matter. I would 100% come back and stay here

The staff here is exceptional. Lorrie, the host at dinner is most accommodating and helpful. Be sure to ask her for a mixed drink suggestion. The breakfast staff is very friendly and will make you something special to complement the buffet lineup. We enjoy IHG properties wherever we travel and this one ranks as one of the best in the lineup. Frank Atayde, the general manager, is to be complimented for all his staff.

We got an okay deal and the room was nice enough, but the whole place had such an unfriendly vibe. The front desk was littered with (10+) unfriendly notes all over the place, and everything felt cheap. For instance, they don’t offer stayover cleaning/refresh, which I believe deviates from the general IGH housekeeping policy. The housekeeping itself was also unacceptably poor, with hairs in the beds and severely stained towels (large brown/red/yellow marks). The water pressure was abysmal, and TV froze many times. It’s also noisy from the highway outside. All in all, not a place I would return to.

Dear lukas-sthlm, Thank you for sharing your experience, and we are sorry we didn't provide the level of service that you've come to expect. We want to sincerely apologize for the negative experience that the room and amenities were not properly and thoroughly cleaned and maintained according to the high standards of our housekeeping and maintenance staff. We assure you to forward this concern to the management for their attention and action. I am also displeased to hear that anyone was treated in an unfriendly or unprofessional manner at this property. I do thank you for bringing this matter to our attention and I assure you that this is not the standard that we hold our staff too. We will be correcting this issue for improved convenience in future visits. I hope you will accept our sincerest apologies and we hope to see you again in the future- we promised a better stay next time.
