Have stayed here a few times over the last few years, and have usually had great experiences. We've booked here as someone in our frequent traveling party has a need for a particular kind of shower that ADA rooms provide, and in most cases, those rooms have been available and easy to book online. I like the design and setup of Element hotels in general - this particular one was kind of a well-kept secret in the area - a clean, nicely designed new hotel - and originally seemed to cater to more of a business crowd, but it seems like the secret has been discovered, it's been super busy on our last few visits. They do have free breakfast - we usually go elsewhere but it seems like a decent array of items + a coffee machine that makes espresso drinks. The garage was initially free to use but within the last year, a $25 nightly fee has been added. (PS thanks to the front desk person who helped us move rooms on our most recent stay after the rude people in the neighboring room were making an insane amount of noise.)

Positives: ok location, newer hotel. Negative: paper thin walls I could hear people in next room talking, coughing etc. breakfast was somewhat ok but not as good as other hotels in same class, employees at breakfast area seemed inconvenienced by requests. Stayed for 3 nights and no housekeeping service at all even they said it is every other day. Parking price for this area of Orange county is unreasonable Overall I think area has better options and I would not stay again.
