I have stayed at numerous Ayers and so I decided on this one while in the area. The staff was great upon arrival and helped a lot. I told them I was planning on going to the Veijas casino for dinner at their steakhouse and they said a shuttle could be provided. I also told them that I had 2... More

David and I planned a weekend trip together we had not been to the San Diego area for over 2 years. We now have a small cocker we adopted from the animal shelter in Camarillo. We named him Don Diego. One of the things we liked best was that he was welcome to stay at the Ayres.

Extremely friendly staff - room was spotless - bed was exceptionally comfortable - large closet with extra pillows if needed. We had a ground floor room facing the courtyard. The courtyard was very inviting - tables with chairs adjacent to a tranquil waterfall. We will definitely stay here again!

This strikes me as a converted Motel 6 or Days Inn with the Ayers nameplate. Located in a strip mall off of I-8 it had the advantage of being relatively inexpensive for the San Diego area but just did not measure up for us; small pool; small and poor quality breakfast; outdoor room access; noisy environment; nondescript strip mall next...

We had an early appointment for a hawk encounter/class at a nearby facility,so booked this as the closest hotel. The place looks nice, but not that impressive: Only 1 bath towel for 3 people. When I went to the office, I was given sufficient towels. Then when my husband went to take a shower there was no shower curtain! (Couldn't... More

This was the last night on the road of a 12 day road trip. This was our second stay at the property. Love this property due to the location and the easy access to visit family in El Cajon. The only negative comments is that the room that we had, the hot and cold water faucets were on opposite sides... More

I spent extra money to get early check in and when I got there they were un able to give us a room. I understand they can't kick someone out of their room but if you can't guarantee early check in, don't have me pay for it. They did not offer a refund for the inconvenience. Breakfast was the usual... More

This is a motel but a very nice one. Although it's close to the freeway and our room was that side we didn't find it noisy at night. Bed was very comfortable and the room and bathroom clean and inviting. I would agree with what others have said about the bathroom light switch and door- we couldn't find the switch... More

Very friendly staff and we were all quite impressed by the cleanliness of the room. Our room faced the courtyard which offered a pleasant view. My three "what could be betters" - the beds were extremely soft making for a "sinking feeling" when sleeping; the pillows were flat; and the location of the bathroom light switch is so far from...
