The Holiday Inn Express Costa Mesa is clean, quiet, good amenities (Keurigs in room, frig, microwave, pool, etc.), convenient to Newport Beach, and has an excellent staff. Would definitely stay here again for the price.

I booked this hotel around midnight the night before our trip to Cali because the reviews and price were so great. They were correct! The staff is all awesome. Jesus was just as great as all the reviews stated! All other staff were great too! I love that our standard room had a counter space with sink, fridge, coffee maker,...

Simple in decor, furnishings and layout, the Holiday Inn is a good base for business in Costa Mesa or pleasure in nearby Newport Beach. Midway between John Wayne Airport and Newport Beach, it's well located although not much going on in the immediate neighborhood. You'll need a car to get around but there's free underground parking. Rooms are simple, clean,...

Booked short notice business trip with 2 night stay at this hotel. Arrived early but staff made extra effort to get a room ready for an early check in. Room, and breakfast area were clean. Jesus was very helpful when I arrived, as was the other gentleman working the desk in the daytime. Night time desk staff equally professional. Only...

Stayed here with my mum prior to running the OC half marathon. This was one of the host hotels for the event. We had a great stay; there's lots of parks nearby to explore - we highly recommend visiting the upper Newport Bay Nature Reserve (bring running shoes). The beds at the hotel were comfortable and new - it looks...

I had a very nice stay at this property. The layout and design is a bit funky/non traditional, but they make it work for the space that they have. I stayed here November of 2016 -- there was some construction goii on .. but it was fine. Jesus at the desk was wonderful, accommodating .... a pleasure to deal with....

This was my first time in Costa Mesa. It's a great little city. Everyone met was super friendly. As usual Holiday Inn delivers a nice place. This is a nicely updated hotel and is a great little place to stay. It's not a big location, but it is quaint and clean. Big rooms and a nice n' roomy stand up...

Helped us with a website double billing problem right away. Room and skill outdoor pool very well maintained. Juan very helpful for weekend breakfast. Would stay here again. Parking was right but free which saved us a lot compared to neighbouring hotels.
