Motel 6 Irvine - Orange County Airport
Ranked #15 of 23 Hotels in Santa Ana
Reviewed 30 October 2011

This motel6 was obviously built as some other chain. The place has 70's design and decor all over it and the rooms are bigger and a little fancier than a standard motel 6.

I stayed in a second floor room that actually had a sliding glass door and a balcony.

The only thing I would wish for is to have modern flat screen TV's so i can plug my computer in and stream netflix

The location is near two freeways and there is some construction noise but it was not bad.

Parking is ample and easy to get into. There are several restaurant and small stores nearby.

I think the second story rooms would be difficult for somebody in a wheelchair because the elevator comes up to a floor that is about 1.5 feet higher than the hallways that you reach by a set of 3 stairs.

Stayed here for a week - (made reservations from elsewhere for the week, and was told after arrival NO REFUNDS). First room they showed me smelled bad- and I complained to the front desk, who (promptly) moved me to a better room down another hall. Bed was adequate but not really comfortable, shower temps were good though, lighting ok, noise outside window is next to either a noisy freeway or a gas station where people drive in late at night and lean on their horn just to be irritating to the motel guests.

PRO's - front desk was usually courteous. Though I noted not to everyone- there were two times they were arguing with other travellers about promised room rates that were higher then stated.). lights ok, shower hot, tv worked ok.

CONS: Hookers hanging around the front entrance and inside the spacious lobby and monopolizing the $10 for 10 minutes internet connection (that broke three times while I was there) it's slow also-. No Refrigerators or microwaves in the rooms , (every other motel in town has them), rooms were smelly and you actually have to ASK for a clean one, there was a really rude dude in a wheelchair who regularly blocked the front entrance doors and tried to pick arguments if you asked him to move out of the way. Other Cons: At the freeway entrance three times saw a guy with an empty gas can and a sign claiming he needed money for gas- and was "broke" and "homeless" - on my last night there saw the same guy coming out of a second floor room to the stairs- carrying the gas can with him- he got in a new BMW and drive off with two women! Homeless Con Man!

I would never recommend this Motel 6 to anyone even for 1 night. There is a very decent Comfort Inn on Hotel Terrace Drive and 3 other good motels just a block away or so on the other side of the freeway - which cost very little more and are definitely better!

Room Tip: Tell them you want a CLEAN room!

Make sure you check out by noon. Management and housekeeping will harrass you and really don't like late check-outs. No appreciation for regular guests.

It is a large motel. It has comfortable beds. It is a clean motel. It has jacuzzi & pool which makes it more enjoyable. It's close to food and freeway. It takes pets. We stay there when ever we're on that side of town.

I work in AZ and when I have to go to those boring meetings in orange county, this is the place were you would see me. Although there is no breakfest in the morning, I can't complain for the good price. The staff was wonderfull. I felt like home. I have to give much props to javier who is one of the staff members there. He would do his darn best to make you happy and comfterable. They also have a pool and spa which is a plus. Especially for those tough days.

Everything would've been okay except there was blood splatter on the wall!!!!!!!!!!!!! Did someone die in the room? When I told the front desk they didn't seem concerned. Not staying there again nor recommending to anyone.

Don't bring children here. Prostitutes haunt the place and the staff knows it. The place smells. The furniture is old, stained and the lobby chairs smelled of urine. It is a dive. THe help are arrogant and clearly look down on their clents which is funny becuase they are a graceless, crew. If you have any other alternative dot come. Board of Health should shut them down Heat is noisy and aturns off. Same with air conditionser. Carpets are so nasty you will want to wear your shoes at all ti mes. YOu mnight contracaat a disease God forbid
