I recently stayed at the HI Express in Santa Ana, It's only a mile or so from the downtown area. Check in was easy and all the virus prevention items were in place. I had a nice sized room that included microwave, minifridge, Keurig coffee maker and even a safe. The TV was huge! The hotel uses an energy efficient AC system that does not make a sound. It takes 10-15 mins to get going, per the front desk. The room was in great shape. The fixtures were all in good shape and the room was noticeably clean. The pool and restaurant are currently closed, though I did see a shop of sorts with snacks. The view is not great, though you can see the mountains. The room was clean and quiet. It was a good place to get caught up on work. The staff was pleasant and helpful. I would recommend this hotel for a stay in the Santa Ana are.
