Great hotel with friendly staff. Gorgeous surroundings and very safe environment. I loved how it was close to stores/restaurants. Nice outdoor amenities and well stocked complimentary breakfast! Good rate for the area in CA we were in, highly recommend staying here as it is updated and clean.

We are very lucky to be located in a great area with a variety of restaurants, from IN & OUT Burgers, Outback, Red Robin and great shopping area with a Wall-Mart, Target & CVS. We appreciate your kind words and look forward to your next visit to Foothill Ranch. Thank you!

Great service! Loved the Staff. My stay was wonderful I totally felt wanted. Rooms were clean and well stocked everyday. Parking kind of far when hotel was busy and buses parked in a lot of prime parking spaces. Note, bus driver napping in bus cargo bay was not attractive.

Too much bleach used on sheets. Very strong smell. I have told front desk about this and their comment is that they will notify housekeeping. Situation has not improved in my last 3 stays. Hard to fall asleep with such strong odor

The common areas are dirty. The filth on the floor is visible to my near-sighted eyes, which is terrifying as to how filthy it must be. I would be very surprised if the elevator is in compliance. It rattles, and makes a horrible noise when in use. My room is next to the elevator, so whenever it is in use,...

Decided to go on a little staycation close to home and this hotel did not disappoint! I was able to relax by the pool, grub on free breakfast, and enjoy a clean room. Only about 10ish minutes to the spectrum and nearby restaurants.

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...

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...

We stayed here on a Thursday night and a Saturday night. Great location for us, as we were close to family as well as many stores, restaurants, etc. The breakfasts selection was different on each stay! The front-desk staff was friendly and professional!

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...
