Nice place and good location. Modern shopping in the area and not too crowded. Food service in the area is also very good. Easy access to Parkways and local freeways. Service Staff was freindley and willing to answer questions.

The hotel accommodation and staff are great never had a problem. the only issue is the remodeled breakfast area. The chairs are way to large/wide. if you are under 6.4ft they are not conformable to sit at. Because of the size of the chairs you cannot have more than two people to a table, when traveling with 3 or more colleagues, it makes it hard to sit together and have a relaxing conversation before the start of the day.

I have written reviews about this location before because we stay there regularly. We always stay at Hampton for their quality and consistency. I had to write this review to shine the light on a special woman named Barbara who works in the breakfast area! My sister and I were visiting to see our mom who was at the end of her life and we spent one night. I went to the breakfast area early and knowing my sister's disabilities would prevent her from getting into those stupid remodel chairs, I wa... Read more

I have worked in hotel sales for 7 years now and this stay far exceeded my expectations! I wish I could have taken the staff with me back to Texas. Barbara in breakfast was exceptional! When she saw our shirts and asked about going to Disney, she brought us water bottles to take with us to the park. Another day she brought my 5 year old a lollipop, which made her day! Katy checked us in on 05/26 and was so helpful. She too stopped my daughter with a treat. I stayed at this location about 4 years... Read more

Every time I come to Orange County I stay here. I have many choices as a business traveler. I like that when I arrive I am greeted by friendly staff as well as a cookie and flavored water. My room is clean and the beds are comfortable. In the morning the breakfast is good and the staff is terrific. Overall my experiences have been positive, so I continue to come. Thanks everyone!

Our stay at Hampton Inn, Lake Forest, CA was very enjoyable. It was reasonably priced and provided a hot complimentary breakfast each morning with freshly baked chocolate chip cookies and fresh fruit each night in the lobby. The room was clean and the staff was extremely helpful. We would recommend this hotel to others.

I would stay here again without hesitation. It was centrally located for the purpose of my trip. The food was standard Hampton Inn fare, which is to say a decent variety and all one can eat. The staff was helpful, and the room and bathroom were very clean

While I wasn't expecting five star accommodations this was still a disappointing experience. I arrived at 3pm which is the listed check in time and was told that they didn't have any clean rooms available. The wait time would be 30 minutes which wouldn't work for me as I had to get ready for an event I was attending that afternoon. They offered an ADA room on the first floor which I accepted. After navigating the hallway which was blocked by no less than five housekeeping carts I made it to my r... Read more

It's your basic family friendly hotel. Luckily, I booked my room early so I was able to choose my room away from the elevator. They have complimentary breakfast served from 6 to 10 that gets pretty busy but it's a nice spread. It's located further away from Disneyland but it's not that bad of a drive. Plus, it's better priced than staying closer to the park. :)

A typical US business hotel in the mid price range. Helpful staff and reasonably clean. The décor is a little jaded and tired, the pool a little small but as a place to stay it is OK. Nice touches are the images against each room to help you realise you are trying to get into someone else's room! The breakfast is pretty basic and for evening eats there are a few places only a short walk away. Snacks and emergency provisions are available in the reception area. Would I go back - despite my...

We had the most unbelievable experience with Fernando Chavez at Hampton Inn. My grandchildren, after a long drive, were promised a swim. The hotel I booked had no pool. All the hotels in the area were booked so we were so depressed and Fernando saved the day by allowing us to swim even though we were not staying at his hotel. We will be forever grateful to Fernando for saving our vacation

This is the second (and last) time I will stay at this property. Both instances, the rooms were dated, the bathrooms were dirty, and the heating and AC units were pieced together very unprofessionally (there was a ineffective thermostat on the wall, which was not integrated with the HVAC-mounted thermostat.) The TV channel offerings were also very lacking. The TV remote was very worn, with very bad responsiveness.

Good hotel for a Hampton Inn. Little pricey and a little out of the way but convenient for south Orange County. Rooms very plain but generally comfortable. Breakfast was at Hampton standard. Bed was comfortable but pillows were inadequate for firmness. I mainly chose the hotel for its location as it was close to a toll road and other attractions

I am currently on a long stint of business travel such that it is cheaper for me to stay in a hotel than rent when I am actually near my home town. I stayed in this place using Hilton Honors points. It was welcoming and comfortable. Most of my week involved being in Irvine and Anaheim. This location was slightly further away then I would prefer. I stayed primarily due to the lower point award price.

First, this is a nice Hampton Inn and very well located. But, the HH digital check-in left a lot to be desired. We checked in on line at 11:19am and chose room 317 because we wanted to be on the top floor so there was no noise above us. We arrived at 4:30 pm and were told our room was not ready. REALLY?
