About Orange County Hotels - by city, read more about each city's hotel offerings!


Aliso Viejo hotels in South Orange County are limited, though fairly new. With only one or two hotels in this mostly residential community, we expect to see more come online in the next decade.

Anaheim hotels in the hotel capital of Orange County rival the offerings in Los Angeles, San Diego, or San Francisco, thanks to Disneyland. While luxury resorts are hard to come by (Disney's California Adventure claims fame as a them park resort), this is one of the best places in all of California to find budget prices and three star quality. Serving families for 50 years, the hotels are accustomed to hospitality, and you'll discover dozens of chain hotel offerings  in brands travelers know and select often. If you're looking to keep your California vacation down to a specific budget, Anaheim is one of the top choices for prices.
Balboa is technically a small section of Newport Beach and as such, should be considered one piece of a bigger pie. With only one hotel listing here, Balboa Inn, you'll find Newport Beach's beach hotel (right next to the sand & Balboa Pier) and central location to walk over to the Catalina Flyer departure next to the Balboa Pavilion. There are other hotels along the peninsula where Balboa Inn sits, but this hotel considers itself the prime spot for beach fun.

Brea hotels exist more as sidebar to Anaheim and Buena Park hotel offerings, and serve a local audience as well as business travelers. Brea has several events throughout the year that make it worth an overnight stay. But you'll only find one or two hotels you can book.

Buena Park hotels surround the Cedar Faire-owned theme park, Knott's Berry Farm. There are a few chain hotel offerings and the prices seem fairly solid throughout the year. You'll get lucky if you find a three diamond chain hotel room for under $99, but the two diamonds will get you in for less seasonally, if you are willing to sacrifice a few basics. There are not luxury hotels, but when you're playing at the theme park all day, who needs to be pampered with spa treatments?

Capistrano Beach hotels are well suited for beach vacations. Located looking over the beaches of Doheny and Dana Point, Capo Beach hotels aren't high on the richter scale of quality as they range in the one and two diamonds, but they are more affordable than some nearby hotels in Dana Point.

Cypress hotels - offer great extended stay options in the business center for corporations.

Dana Point hotels - feature a harbor setting with boat tours, romantic hillside hotels for weddings, and the famous St. Regis and Laguna Niguel's Five Diamond Ritz Carlton.

Fountain Valley - Fountain Valley is a budget hotel, freeway-close option for vacationers and business travelers not needing the beach accommodations.

Fullerton - Fullerton is home to a major state university. It's a come-back town that has charm seen in its downtown building renovations. Clubs, bars, dining, and shopping abound...and there's an Amtrak train stop.

Garden Grove hotels - are Disneyland close. Some of the Garden Grove hotels, in fact, are closer to Disneyland that some Anaheim hotels. You can easily book your Disneyland vacation with Garden Grove hotels.

Huntington Beach hotels are certainly beginning to rival the South Orange offerings for luxury and ocean-close amenities. While none of HB's hotels are on the beach (on-the-beach hotels can be found in Sunset Beach, Newport Beach, Laguna Beach, Dana Point and San Clemente), travelers trade up for amenities in some newer resort properties offering ocean views from many rooms, on-site dining, swimming pools, and even spa treatments at the Hyatt Resort. Ranging from ocean view mid-to-higher priced resorts & hotels, to budget chain hotels along Beach Boulevard and elsewhere, travelers seeking a summer beach vacation are more & more selecting Huntington Beach as their hotel destination.

Irvine hotels - surround the Orange County Airport and the major business center of the county. Irvine caters to business travelers so, come Friday, there are deals to be found in the closest hotels to Orange County Airport.

La Palma hotels - in north Orange County offer business-friendly accommodations and amenities.

Laguna Beach |  | - Laguna Beach is the beach choice for hotels on the beach. Most cities don't have hotels right on the beach like Laguna Beach does. It's definitely a family and couples vacation spot.

Laguna Hills - This is near many residential complexes and leisure world, as is Laguna Woods, Lake Forest and Mission Viejo They are all located in the same region--South Orange County.

Los Alamitos - Los Alamitos is near the racetrack but is also known for its business hotels.

Newport Beach - Is a young & beautiful playground for the beyond teen crowd. Vacations are one attraction, but there are many Newport Beach hotels surrounding the Orange County Airport, too!

Newport Coast - Newport Coast is the newest, annexed portion of Newport Beach that defines itself as upscale and expensive. The hotels are not on the beach, but mostly feature hillside locations overlooking the ocean.

Orange - Known for its charming Old Town, modern The Block shopping mall and other attractions, Orange hotel accommodations are pretty utilitarian.

Placentia - Placentia hotels offer affordable options for business and family vacations.

San Clemente - A beach, a pier, surfing and an old-fashioned city with a downtown core make up this lovely seaside city with hotels designed for tourists. It's a vacation stop.

San Juan Capistrano hotels - are located near the city's major attraction, the Mission San Juan Capistrano. The mission, historic dining and shopping district, and  a first class equestrian facility where events are hosted require lodgings for the many happenings in the city just a stone's throw from the beaches of Dana Point.

Seal Beach hotels are limited in offerings.  For such a charming place, Seal Beach hotels don't do the town justice. A beach, pier, and great bay location are ideal. Many movies have been filmed here. But there are no hotels at the beach, and Pacific Inn is approx. 3 blocks away. Ayres & Hampton Inn are fairly new and offer affordable, freeway close accommodations for business travelers, youth and sports groups, and budget travelers.

Stanton hotels - are on Beach Blvd. near Buena Park's Knott's Berry Farm. These budget hotel offerings are ideal for travelers wanting to save money.

Sunset Beach hotels - offer the only hotels actually on the ocean-side of a road or highway between Long Beach and Balboa. Sunset Beach is a great place to stay and simply relax, and the hotel rates tend to be affordable.

Tustin hotels - There's maybe one hotel offering online bookings in Tustin. Hotel rooms are quite limited so travelers look more often to Anaheim and Irvine.

Westminster hotels - offer a freeway-close, affordable choice for Southern California vacations and overnight stays. Westminster gets a bad rap as the freeway-close, budget hotel choice, but people like it because the prices are great and you're only 10 or 15 minutes worth of stoplights from the beach.

Yorba Linda - There aren't many hotels in Nixon Library territory. Maybe one.


Orange County California hotels include great values in affordable accommodations near Disneyland and Knotts Berry Farm in Anaheim and Buena Park.


Orange County hotels offer one of the greatest selections of affordable to luxury accommodations in all of California. Why?  Disneyland! 


Disneyland has done an excellent job of developing a strategy to make vacations easy for guests. The price of tickets is fairly costly so an affordable fee structure is in place, providing cheap, budget, middle-of-the-road, and corporate quality rooms and suites for every budget.


With Anaheim Convention Center located across the street from Disneyland, hotel rooms are in great demand all year long, thanks to the awesome Orange County weather (some of the finest in the world.) The types of travelers coming to enjoy the sunny climes are families on vacation, Californian weekend getaway nomads, and those attending conferences and conventions, especially. Of course Orange County hotels see other segments of the market but for you, the travel planner booking your rooms for your trip, what all this means is that you're probably going to find something in a price range you like.


In  addition to the budget and value hotels such as Best Western chain, there are upscale resorts on the beach and nearby. Popular shopping destinations such as South Coast Plaza in Costa Mesa near Orange County's John Wayne Airport are surrounded by hotels.


From Five Diamond AAA resorts to hotels with no ranking, you can stay in presidential suites, ocean view rooms, rooms overlooking California Adventure rides at Disneyland Resort, rooms on beaches, near freeways and with spas, restaurants, bars, lounges and golf courses on site.


Southern California's Orange County Hotels and Resorts are some of the most popular choices for California Vacations. Nothing quite holds a candle to the Disneyland Vacation hotels, primarily because of their location to the theme parks. Families and people on vacation or weekend getaways prefer the convenience of walking across the street to Disney fun, rather than driving or taking a bus or driving from a Orange County beach hotels.


With over 100 resorts and hotels surrounding the theme park in Anaheim and Garden Grove, you will find many within walking distance of the park and most are incredibly affordable in comparison  to other Orange County California Hotels.


Tourists and travelers like staying at Orange County hotels because the climate is great and the atmosphere is more friendly and safe than larger surrounding counties such as San Diego and Los Angeles.


California Beach Hotels offer an exciting, fun way to experience oceanfront enjoyment without the fees involved in monthly mortgage payments. Getting away to a beach hotel is a simple process and can be affordable in off-season visits. Above is a list of some of hundreds of beach hotel options in California.
