We have stayed at Ayres Hotels several times in the pass and were very happy with their services and rooms. We like their larger rooms, king beds and the overall amenities of the rooms. The rooms have a modern feel with updated bathrooms and soothing colors. Most rooms have a pull out couch to relax on. The grounds were well... More

Very wonderful stay at Ayres, staff very helpful and friendly, room was very clean. Lots to do around the area, hiking casino, outlet center with bowling and movie night during summer. The price of the hotel was very reasonable. A few good places to eat near by. Small town feel, with many things to do.

Unfortunately I have to do business trips to the area and stay on this property since it is the only place in town other than the casino (which runs over $200 a night). I will start with the front desk. Three of the people working there are plain rude, I'm not asking you to go the extra mile to be... More

Hotel was clean and all of the staff were very accommodating. The location was very convenient for travel to San Diego. The access on and off the freeway was very easy. It was also nice to have the restaurants and small grocery store close by.

This hotel is a very nice place to stay at when in the Alpine area. I only had two minor beefs. The first is I could not get the internet to work on my tablet or iPhone. It saw the wifi, but did not allow you to log on. I am quite computer literate, and usually have no trouble logging... More

I've had the please of staying at several of the other Ayers locations, so when we needed lodging in the San Diego area, we naturally thought of Ayers. We were not disappointed. Convinient location to restaurants and freeway access. Delighted by the rear courtyard area. The rooms are clean and comfortable, and the staff was, as we've found elsewhere, more... More

We only stayed one night in the Ayres hotel in Alpine but wanted to say it was a good experience. The hotel is quant and clean and the staff is very friendly. The grounds are well kept and it is conveniently located near restaurants and groceries. It is not fancy but it is very clean, cute and comfortable!

I stay at this hotel quite often on business so am very familiar with it. The rooms are clean and quite and the staff is friendly and helpful. There are many good restaurants within walking distance. The one downside is the quality/speed of the wifi. It would be fine for one night but it is extremely frustrating during my longer... More

well, I wasn't impressed initially, but my family and I were there for a week, and the staff, grounds, ambience grows on you. Peaceful, tranquil, and very much has the country flair. only a 30 min drive from sea world and a very good barbeque area. I would go back in a hot minute. I enjoyed the stay. It has... More
