Great big room with kitchen and sitting area whether you are a studio or 1 bedroom. Good for family or business stay. We have been staying this hotel every time we visit Orange County from San Francisco. What we love this hotel, they provide great breakfast and happy hour with finger food, beer and wine. As far as we concern,... More

The Residence Inn - Irvine - John Wayne Airport is a nice, quiet place to stay. It's not really at the airport, but it not very far away. The rooms were nice, clean & quiet. They are remodeling the lobby, but it didn't impact the rooms. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I'd definitely recommend it!!

The hotel is quite nice with modern & comfortable suites, free parking and internet access. However, there are major renovations going on the first floor and in the lobby area, so it's a construction zone. They only have a temporary lobby and breakfast is served in a temporary location as well with sitting only available in a nearby conference room.... More

A big pet peeve of mine is when hotels do not indicate they are renovating on their website. I totally appreciate and understand the need to renovate, but you need to let guests know before they show up. Renovations are never without dust, noise and inconvenience to guests and employees. There is a small temporary front desk/lobby area. There is... More

I usually stay at a B&B place but I couldn't find one in Irvine. Luckily, this place was perfect. The location is very conveniently located to 3 restaurants which I certainly took advantage off. There's happy hour with free wine and hot breakfast. It's also close to UCI which was the reason for my visit. I didn't have a car... More

We recently stayed the night here prior to departing REALLY early out of John Wayne Airport and what a great hotel! First off, if you have Marriott certificates this is surprisingly a Category 5, so you can use one of those puppies and stay for free. Second, they have FREE parking. Yes I said FREE.

I will get right down to it... we simply did not fit in at this property and we are Marriott Elite members.

We stayed at this Marriott for one night. There's not many things to walk to so you'll need a car to go anywhere. The rooms were clean and had everything you needed to cook in the room.
