Nice hotel. A little run down. Needs some TLC and attention to detail. Freeway was almost in the parking lot. But, could not hear it in the room. Fan runs all night, and that is want we want. Hate A/C units that go on and off all night.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 17 December 2016

The La Quinta Inn Orange County is much like what you would find at a Holiday Inn Express or Marriott Courtyard. The hotel was clean and neat. The staff was highly accommodating. The major plus to this hotel is price for value while being centrally located. It is a straight 3 to 5 minute drive to South Coast Plaza.... a...

I was here for 3 weeks and hardly slept at all. The noise level is unbelievable! The front side of the hotel is right on the freeway. The back is a parking lot shared with Hooters. I have been coming here for 30 years and it just continues to deteriorate. The updates through the years have been mostly cosmetic. The...

Not a bad trip other than the WiFi my room not working. Was remedied so all good! Location of the hotel was very convenient to my reason for going there and price was ok. Need better lighting all around the hotel.

The La Quinta Orange County is well situated. There are restaurants and shopping nearby. The hotel is clean and the staff is friendly. The hotel serves a nice complementary breakfast. The staff is friendly and very helpful.

I like this hotel as its location is near the beaches and shipping, the room is quiet, extremely I like the open style building. It is close to highway, but no noise bothers me at all. I also like the brand name which sounds French to me.

The LQ John Wayne was disappointing. The 405 HWY and Hooters restaurant were sources of endless noise and sleep interruptions. The room itself was worn out and showed signs of heavy use. Breakfast bar was very basic and crowded. Little reason to visit expect for morning coffee. I was very disappointed and rate this as a low end hotel.

We appreciate you sharing your comments, and we’re sorry we disappointed you during your stay with us. Being able to have a quiet, comfortable room that meets your expectations is important. We are currently working on a solution to better soundproof the doors to prevent freeway noise from entering our rooms. I’m sorry to hear the lobby was crowded and...

The room was comfortable, clean, and perfect for our needs. Breakfast was a nice added touch. Parking is limited if returning late, but the location is perfect; close to the beach, Disneyland, and several freeways to get where you want.

“Housekeeping should replace the wastebasket liners before a new guest checks in. The AC unit is supposed to have instructions posted on it, but according to the maintenance man mine was missing. There were dried red spots on the inside of the hotel door frame, which looked like dried blood. There hotel phone in my room didn't work I used my cell phone to call the front desk. ”
