We stayed at the Ayres in Laguna Woods , where we have stayed many times before. I have to say that I enjoyed the happy hour, and that the morning food was good also. As far as the room was concerned It never seemed to stay cool in the room no matter how low we put the air conditioner. Also... More

I've never done a review before, but I have to say, I really love this Hotel. First, the staff is very personable. Has the feeling of a family run hotel instead of a Corporate chain. I stay there for business about 1 or 2 times a month. They always go out of their way to get that requested room I... More

Wonderful hotel. Staff is very professional and friendly. Beautiful property; our room, the lobby, as well as the outdoor patio were just beautiful and enjoyable to relax in. Breakfast was great. We really enjoyed our stay and plan to return later this year.

We went to Laguna Woods for a wedding and had a good block rate at the Ayres. Wonderful hotel with breakfast included. Couldn't be happier with our stay. I agree with some of the other reviewers about the courtyard, this is where we ate breakfast in the morning. It was very quiet; I never heard a peep from any other... More

I personally won't stay here again. They boast they are "European-style". However, I have been to Europe many times and didn't see anything resembling Europe here. It reminded me of and smelled like my grandmother's house. I view this as slightly better than a Comfort Inn--many things are very cheaply done and is in dire need of a overhaul. And... More

My company sent me to Aliso Viejo, CA for training for 2 weeks. They choose this hotel for my training group's stay. Overall this hotel is ok for this price (apprx. $200/night) compared to some more budget friendly hotels I've stayed in on my own choice. I was placed in a single bed room. Some of my training mates had... More

My wife and I have stayed at the Ayres Laguna Woods six or seven times. Most recently we stayed from August 9 through August 13, 2014. The hotel continues to meet expectations of providing clean and comfortable rooms. Hotel staff are great and the included breakfast is a great touch. We are sold on quality and value of the Ayres...

We recently held a family reunion here and it was very successful, due in large part to this hotel. We have stayed at other Ayres hotels, so were already convinced of their high standards. After checking out six other southern California Ayres properties, we choose this one because of its beautiful courtyard. Everyone enjoyed the large, made-to-order breakfasts each morning,... More

The hotel is beautiful and my room was comfortable. The desk staff was professional, but not always friendly. The breakfast was a big surprise - the best complimentary selection I've ever had. The dinning room staff was friendly and kept everything well stocked. The "Happy Hour" was a little disappointing after the wonderful breakfast experience. However, the freshly baked cookies... More

Everything from arrival to departure and all the time in between was simply outstanding. Heartfelt thanks to Vince the general manager and all of his accommodating staff. Breakfast was delicious from the Belgian waffles to the perfectly cooked eggs over medium. My wife and I are loyal to the Ayres Hotel group simply because every experience has been more than... More
