Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Gus01 Comfortable bed buthad a problem with the initial room
The hotel is clean and beds were comfy! The problem was that when we arrived and they sent us up to our room it had a horrible smell. We went back down and management said they were looking into it since others were also complaining. They should have checked ths before sending us to the room if they knew there was a problem!
Other than that the room was clean and close to beaches.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by RafiD Nice hotel and room but charged 40% for bed change
The hotel looks nice and the room too but I was charged 40% of the cost of the room for asking to change from a king size bed to 2 doubles.

Not the Holiday Inn Express.
I expected better.
Holiday Inn Express has always been consistent and a good value.
This is HI and I expected "better" or "More".
No included breakfast at the AAA Rate.
I'll stay somewhere else in Irvine. Plenty of other choices.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by andy43061 Good Bar service
Brian was a great guy at the bar made the stay despite the problems. I question front desk staff, lack of knowledge and a bit rude. Kitchen hours not good if you get in late from a flight or get up later. No free shuttle service to and from airport. Not the best place to stay if you don't have a car but rooms and overall hotel grounds to Holiday Inn standards.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by skinnyphish A/C did not work and problems with hold on credit card
A/C was not working properly every night we stayed there. Finally moved us to a different room on our last night there after trying a noisy swamp cooler with the window open (next to freeway). Asked for credit for two of the nights and they talked me into IHG rewards points worth one night instead. Used that for an extra night and they put three holds on our credit card totally over $400 that stayed on there for 3-4 days and messed with our being able to access funds. The stay the last night was comfortable and the rooms are clean but the way the manager handled this one was not good. Plus the IHG rewards is a joke. Not worth signing up for.

Surprisingly good restaurant too. The salmon was excellent, better than a cruise ship I had just come from the week prior. Overall nice stay with free and easily accessible wi-fi, free parking. Would stay here again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TaraLAtravel Comfortable bed, close to 133 highway to access Laguna Beach
We had several issues during our stay, but they tried to make everything right - sometimes immediately and sometimes not so immediately. Best staff person is SHAUN at front desk (the only one who smiles and is friendly) the weekend bartender, who is great!! Overall, it was a fairly good experience, but not sure if I would stay here again. Too many kids.

The staff at the Holiday Inn spectrum is always fantastic. I stay at this hotel often for Business and they are always friendly, helpful and it is nice to be greeted by name, showing they remember me from last time. The people really make the difference when you stay here.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by R H53 Quiet; comfortable bed
Bed was more comfortable than ours at home. I think we may need a new mattress. And, though adjacent to freeway, and noisy outside, it was amazingling quiet inside. Great night's sleep!

I have been extremely happy with staying at the Holiday Inn, at the Irvine Spectrum location in Irvine. I've been going there for at least 6 years for vacations and trips and each time I am very pleased.

It's been a long time since I stayed at a Holiday Inn. I was pleasantly surprised: modern, good size room, great comparative value. I'd stay again and am as I write this review.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Momlooking2relax In Irvine for my daughters swimmeet.
We have stayed at many Holiday Inn hotels with our kids. From San Diego to Orlando. So we have seen it all! Some of them we will NEVER go again! We will definitely stay at this location again, all the staff is very friendly and make you feel at home, the front desk, maintainence, room service. The rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. My kids had lots of fun at the pool which allowed my husband and I to relax and enjoy some peace. The pool area is nicely decorated, very clean and well maintain. We had a problem with the gate handle and with in minutes the maintenance crew was there to fix it! That night they had a fun DJ for entertainment night in the lobby. The DJ had everyone dancing and signing! My girls even sang karaoke and loved it! We felt like we were in some fancy resort in Mexico or Hawaii. Thank you for the great experience!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by rocketpower best business hotel in OC
Staff is great, if you're nice you'll be treated even better. They always remember what you like and if you come often enough, they will always have what you like when you arrive. After a while it feels like family!
The only negative is the quality of the dinner. Quality of meat and cooking isn't all that great, especially the burger! Recommend the OC chicken or the Cobb salad.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Silvia17 Weird smell on 4th floor
The only negative impression I had was about a strange smelling on the 4th floor. The smell/stink was there as soon the elevator doors open and did not really have a good impression for me walking out the elevator.
The intensity of the smell became less walking away from the ICE making machine and the beverage room.

Good Stuff: Great customer service, clean room including bath room and good value for the money.
Not so good stuff: Noisy A/C in some rooms, elevators aren't secured and pricey breakfast menu.
I will definitely consider this one for my next business trip.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Sandy12500 I would not recommend this property
I would not recommend this propert to anyone.
As an IHG Member, you are not greeted or acknowledged.
The beds are hard and the walls are thin. You hear every step and stomp in the room above you.
I would not recommend this property.

We had a great experience with the front desk staff, Jonathan was very helpful and took care of us although we showed up without a reservation. We appreciated that the shuttle was offered to us when we needed to go to the market, this was a great service.
Thank you to all the staff for taking care of us and for making it a great stay.
