    • 4.0.Fair

      It is an old property and more of a motel style than a hotel. Room had a musty smell and old furniture and worn out bed linen, carpets and curtains. I moved out to another hotel within 15 minutes of checking in.

      great experience overall

      Checking in was so easy there aren’t any mandatory check in time which was great for us since we checked in around 10pm. Plenty of free parking and elevators available to get to Our room. Room was very spacious, nice little Balcony, mini fridge, microwave, safe and plenty of drawers. So glad Breakfast was being survived since a lot of other hotels aren’t offering breakfast any more with covid. Breakfast had a large verity which included bacon, sausage,eggs,hash browns, toast, bagels oatmeal, cereal, milk, juice, hot Coco, coffee,Yogurt and fresh fruit staff in breakfast room were so attentive and nice they kept everything clean and stocked. House keeping did an amazing job. We would differently be staying here again. So I really hope they keep up with these standards the next time I stay here.

      Very Clean

      I was worried because the reviews from the summer were really bad. The hotel was not as full this time (September 2021) as it usually is. The staff was constantly cleaning (more than usual). The cleaning staff seem to clean the rooms during a very small window of time during the day compared to my stays in the past. The room, especially the carpet, was very clean. Every day someone was steam cleaning the floors in one of the rooms with a huge machine and fan. There was no evidence of past guests in my room. Everything was great. I was there for three days and kept the "do not disturb" sign on the door for two of those days. Housekeeping knocked on the door at 9:00am on the morning we checked out. If you want to swim in the pool, they limited the group size to 12 people. I didn't get up early enough to try the breakfast. The hours for the gym were limited to daytime hours instead of the usual 24 hours a day. I tried to zoom using my own phone's data plan, but the hotel is in a dead zone and I was only able to get two bars for the several work zooms I had to do. I didn't try the hotel wifi because it has been lackluster in the past. I used the little desk they have in the rooms that are suites.

      Irvine Hotel two thumbs up 👍 👍

      Great location, food nearby, on site parking is free. The breakfast was awesome. Freshly made, full spread hot meal and lots if goodies on the side. Great 2nd floor patio. The pool is small but clean and nice. The staff is helpful and very nice Ive been staying here for 15+ years and it keeps improving.
