Verified reviews of Sonesta Simply Suites Orange County Irvine Lake Forest

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked in recently:
"Loved the quietness and appreciated the great customer service!"
Overall score3.0/ 5
This location is perfect for guests visiting Lake Forest. The hotel is perfectly quiet for sleeping. The kitchen is nicely appointed with big refrigerator, stovetop, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, pots and storage space, but bowls and utensils were missing (even for just us 2). Receptionist did a good job of finding what we needed. Nice service.
