I have stayed at the Costa Mesa Marriott numerous times since it first opened. It is usually a reliable spot, even if some of the facilities are a bit in need of a refresh. The most recent visit was marred by noise from the construction projects that are ongoing. First off, part of the hotel is closed off with yellow... More

The hotel is in an excellent location. We stayed here the night after seeing a show at the Sagerstrom Center for the Arts. We were in a nice room with a separate bedroom and living area. Bed itself was clean and comfortable. The bathroom & related amenities could use some work: no exhaust fan, old scratchy towels, and the toilet... More

I stayed at this hotel for 8 nights as part of a business trip. The hotel is well placed near the airport and I had no real difficulty finding it after a 24 hour journey, at night, with no gps (although I did need to ask someone once for directions!) The hotel has ample parking, which is situated adjacent to... More

Great staff, clean room though a little musty. This is a utility clean hotel with all the usual amenities. This is a come and go hotel and maybe a light meeting.

Rooms were well appointed with a lovely view of the pond. I had read that the rooms were dated but my room was quite nice and in good condition. Very close to John Wayne Airport; skip the rental car and the parking fee. Easy walk to South Coast Plaza, and the entertainment complex.

Moved here after a terrible stay at a nasty hotel about a mile away. The rooms are nice and big. Very Clean and the maid service was great. The only complaint I have is the wait staff in the restaurant where very poorly trained. Left dirty dishes on the table and didn't fill water and coffee.

When I first entered the bathroom, there was a smell of urine and this never went away for two days. Poor design in the room as french door to bedroom hits the tv when you open it.
