This is a practical accommodation for its proximity to John Wayne Airport and the Newport/Costa Mesa/South Coast Plaza area. The hotel is a little dated in its ambiance, but it is super clean, comfortable and the staff is TERRIFIC. Everyone in every position is friendly and helpful. The price is right and it is an easy home base for South... More

We began staying at the Ayres Costa Mesa in the early 1990s when the hotel housed a lovely gift shop run by sisters Karen and Laurie and provided a complimentary, cooked-to-order breakfast for its guests. A lot has changed since then, but Ayres is still our favorite hotel in the area for its quality staff, reliably clean accommodations and proximity... More

Loved staying in second building in a King Suite with a large tub, big room, kitchenette, nice pool in back and second one in main building's courtyard. Breakfast is delicious, hot, made to order and all you can eat! Makes getting out for your day very easy. Centrally located to John Wayne Airport, beaches, Newport Harbor, world class shopping, tons... More

The room was large and clean. The reception staff did their very best to arrange for us to be allocated a different room to that originally allocated. Location next to John Wayne airport make it very handy for travel from there. Restaurant staff also very friendly and food was fine.

I stayed at the hotel because it was close to my work. Great place to stay for a great meal and a great stay. Try the pot roast! The area offers great places to catch as well. Front desk staff was very customer orientated.

I booked my stay as a result of all the overwhelming positive reviews I read. It seems that most revolve around the way the place looks as you walk around the grounds. The decor around the hotel and the courtyards are nice, but I wasn't staying because I liked the way the place looked as I walked to my room.... More

We booked this hotel through a travel agency in conjunction with a softball tournament - having never stayed at a Ayres property we were a little nervous (we tend to stick with brands that we know). We were very pleasantly surprised when we arrived - this hotel is BEAUTIFUL!!! The lobby was gorgeous and our room was in the main... More

I had to book a room for one night in this area and I had short notice. I looked at all the hotels in the area and due to the reviews here I chose this hotel. I would not stay here again. Some may call this place vintage, some may call it old. The room was ok, nothing to rave... More
