“A Very Picturesque Place to Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013

The Ayres Lodge in Alpine is just off the Tavern Road exit from I-8. The area has rolling hills and many trees, clean fresh air, and open vistas. The hotel rooms are quiet and well-kept; there is a nice sitting area in addition to the bed and bath. The heating and cooling work just fine. There is a comprehensive cable TV offering and free WiFi, all included. The continental breakfast is simple but very good – the sausage gravy was excellent! The staff is very friendly and very helpful, and eager to help you enjoy your stay at this very picturesque location. What’s not to like?

Room Tip: The rooms are well-insulaed; although near I-8 we were never troubled by any road noise.

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful time staying at the Ayres lodge. We booked it for a quick getaway close to home. We had no problems checking in and the front desk staff was really nice and informative. She told us about the shuttle service to and from the casino. It was such a great surprise that the shuttle was actually a limo because it was a Saturday night. My boyfriend and I were the only ones using the shuttle so we got to enjoy the limo all to ourselves. It was really wonderful and totally made our night. The room was nice, clean, and had WiFi. I'm so happy we chose to stay here!

My sister and I stay here every time that we take a quick trip to play bingo at Viejas casino and/ or shop at the Viejas outlet stores. The Ayres staff is awesome no matter how busy they get! The hotel is in a great location right off the freeway with easy access to gas stations, drug stores, eating places and has a very safe, well-lit parking lot. The rooms are clean and spacious with free WiFi access. And, the breakfast (which is also included) is great! A big shout-out to Tiffany, Donald, and Cali, the cat! We'll be back! The Sisters

Came in to town for one night. Spoke with Tiffany on the phone the day before and had the pleasure of meeting her at the front desk when we checked in. Found that she was nothing but polite and helpful. An absolute joy to deal with. The hotel was great. Great rooms and amenities, and in a great location near food and plenty to see and do. We will definitely be returning.

Every single employee helped to make our family reunion special. We occupied seven rooms and each was very clean and well appointed. The linens were plush and the beds very comfortable. We also rented the Alpine room which was perfect for our group. The grassy lawn with tables, chairs and a bbq made for a peaceful outdoor lounging area and perfect setting for beautiful photo opportunities. The breakfast that is included was very nice, the biscuits and gravy was a pleasant surprise to the normal offerings of a continental buffet. The Ayres Lodge Alpine was by far the best choice we could have made for our family reunion. I highly recommend this property and plan future visits.

Room Tip: Any room facing the lawn area offers a nice view.

I'm so glad I chose to stay at this hotel. The staff was very lovely and everything was amazing. It's extremely close to Viejas, an exit away, which is exactly what I was looking for and for the price paid it was worth every penny. Everything was so wonderful that I am glad I booked another trip down there in a few weeks.

Hotel is very close to the freeway, but we were not bothered by traffic noise. The buildings are extremely well taken care of, and the grounds are very nice. It was rather cool, so we didn't use the pool. The room are clean, well decorated, and the beds are from heaven. A continental breakfast in their lobby is included. If you are traveling in the area I would recommend this hotel.
