Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by YankeeFan A family gathering place for a near-by wedding
About 36 family and friends stayed here over St. Patrick's Day weekend for a wedding at the near-by Rancho Las Lomas. We had a total of about 22 rooms, some studio, some 1 BR suites. Our room, a studio suite was large, clean and comfortable, with a K bed and sleeper sofa/sitting area, as well as a well-equipped kitchenette (everything but a stove). We arrived early and enjoyed the evening social reception, served M - Th only. Draft beer, wine, salad bar, chips, cookies, fruit, and varying entrees. The two we saw were hamburgers and fries one night, and meatball sandwiches and fries the second night. Breakfast, served every day, was varied and plentiful - eggs, meat, potatoes or biscuits, waffles, muffins, toast, bagels and english muffins, fruit, hot and cold cereal, rice and miso and juice. Coffee and tea are available 24/7 along with some fresh whole fruit.
The hotel has some nice areas for groups to gather, such as the library off the dining area, the sitting area in front of a fireplace, the trellissed courtyard, or at the pool/ hot tub. We used them all throughout the weekend.
For weekend guests, be aware that there is no on-site restaurant or bar, nor one next door, across the street, etc., so without a car you would have to walk along a deserted busness park area about 1/2 mile or more to a large shopping center with plenty of food choices. The only other alternative for lunch or dinner Fri - Sun is pizza delivery or packaged food for sale from the hotel pantry. In retrospect, I would have purchased some cold cuts or hamburgers/hot dogs for my weekend guests to barbeque in the courtyard area.
The hotel staff were very friendly and accomodating to our large group, whether getting and printing directions to the rehearsal dinner and wedding venue or providing a cooler with ice and cups for our family gatherings by the pool or in the courtyard. They also provided the shuttle service to and from the wedding venue, as part of the hotel room block. The drivers were courteous and the vans were clean.
Thank you staff at the Staybridge Suites, Lake Forest!

Outside area and parking were exceptionally well taken care of when we arrived. Reception area was inviting, clean, well staffed and staff were knowledgable with our options in the facility and in the local area. References were impressive and made our stay really easy. Room was spacious, comfortable, extremely clean and well organized. Staff could not have done another thing to make our stay more enjoyable. We will stay here whenever we visit this area again. Breakfast and evening meal were always inviting and exceptionally well prepared. Felt better than home. Thank you.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chris44 Best place in Lake Forest
I've been staying at this Staybridge Suites location since it opened (what, maybe 10 years ago?) and have loved it ever since. The staff are all awesome. They truly care about me when I show up and make sure everything is ok. When the usual little mishap occurs like a bulb out, it is fixed immediately. I really do enjoy this hotel. There are many properties in the area, but this is, by far, the friendliest and best value. Great for business or pleasure. Chris

Since my company switched to Staybridge for any extended stay trips for projects in this area, the very warm welcome extended by the hotel's front desk staff (Mimi and Cloe? specially) makes me feel like right at home. The choices for breakfast and dinner are always excellent. Thanks for your good service.
