We drove in early from Texas and of course couldn't find a hotel (that took dogs) in the central/north part of Orange County. But La Quinta Irvine had availability. I was beyond excited because of the nostalgic quality of this hotel. Being from OC I knew the history of the building and expected the train sounds. It was very nicely done. Love everything about the location. If you don't want history, location and need it to be quiet I recommend paying the obscene prices of Laguna/Newport beach. Lighten up people the train isn't that bad and our room was right over the tracks. It's all in the perspective.

This place has kind staff and great, roomy rooms with nice decor and double windows that open for air or close against the train/freeway noise (with windows closed and earplugs, you can't even hear the trains). Comfy beds, good mini-fridge and microwave, a fine shower, a clean bathroom, no pet fee, no problem with our 2 dogs, enough parking, easy access to restaurants. But this was a non-smoking reservation, and the room reeked of cigarette smoke--it was in all the linens and saturated all my clothes and my own sheet that I brought. I'd give it 5 stars except for the smoky smell which followed me home and the fact that the hotel allows people to smoke right outside non-smoking rooms, so smoke comes in the fan/air conditioning unit. If the hotel steps up its non-smoking policy, this would be really fabulous.
Excellent motel with extremely clean rooms and wonderful and helpful staff. The free breakfast served a nice variety of cereals, bagels, and yogurts as well as a waffle maker. The motel is within three minute walk to three different restaurants which meet most family needs.
We had a little trouble finding this La Quinta because of road construction around it (June 2014) but it is VERY convenient, just off I-5. It is an old grain mill and the building has very thick walls so we had absolutely no noise problems, but there are train tracks on one side and freeway on the other. They had a really inspired idea of turning this historic old mill into a hotel, and when you first drive up you wonder how good it can be because of the original building. But it is a wonderful hotel, and parking is very plentiful. Breakfast was ok, lots of carbs, nothing special but that's not what we were there for. We loved the hotel and will be back.
This hotel is very unique! The suite was spacious and comfortable and the staff was very helpful. The restaurants are just across the parking lot and, being right off I-5, it's very convenient to anything you want to see and do in Orange County. Anyone who stays here is in for a real treat! (Don't pay attention to reviews that complain about the rumble of passing trains--my family had no idea what those reviewers were talking about; this is probably one of the quietest hotels we've ever stayed in.)
