Breakfast on weekend was not early enough

I booked in Lake Forest as I was swimming at the USMS championships in Mission viejo. My only complaint was that if you were not the first ones in for breakfast, there was nothing left. I missed the saturday and sunday breakfast because of the National swim meet I was attending. Warm up in the pool was at 6 am. the Meet started at 730. Not enough time to eat breakfast, then warm up and compete.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service

I liked the location as it had me close to where I wanted to be and having breakfast provided was a real bonus. I was disapointed to discover the hot tub was out of service and the cloet it refers to as a gym was a joke. I had to pay $15 to go to a real gym for a workout. Not impressed with yours.

Poor Management

I booked this room over a month prior to our stay. Requested a ground floor room with a king size bed and it’s not what we got. Check in is at 3 and we planned what time we would leave to arrive perfectly at check in due to a wedding we were attending at 5 o’clock. We arrived at 2:50 to a line at the check in counter and the wait was because rooms were not ready. After 30 mins we were finally given our room on the SECOND floor which wasn’t terrible because we were desperate to get into a room so my wife could get ready. We grab our room key and head on up the elevator with our arms full of luggage. I open the door and find two queen beds inside so we turn around and head back to the elevator and down we go to another 30 minute wait at the check in counter. My wife, after this long wait, gives me that look that all husbands know and she heads up to the counter and starts to explain our time schedule. After a few radio calls between the front desk and house keeping, a room is finally found clean and available. This is an example of poor management especially when check out is 11 and check in is at 3. How do you not have any rooms ready?
