“Perfect after long night @ Honda Center”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

I will definitely be staying here again any time that I have a concert or event at the Honda Center. The hotel is RIGHT across the street from the Honda Center.

While the hotel is not chic like a W hotel, it is just fine--clean and with just enough amenities to make you comfortable. The staff was friendly and kind.

The decor is....not my style. The place probably looks like the house of the gaudy relative we all seem to have. Complete with fake Rembrandts on every inch of wall, "wood" appointments throughout (aka plastic laminate particle board with wood grain painted on it), and other made in China cheap things that desperately try to look more opulent than they really are. But I don't hate the place for trying to be what it wants to be -- "a European boutique hotel" -- according to its own slogan.

Pros: Free parking, nice staff, surprisingly comfy bed, 10am early check-in for extra charge
Cons: Nit picky stuff -- Decor just felt cheap and awkward, the power in the room was turned on only when you had your room key in this slot and it kept malfunctioning and turning off the power randomly
I wish I knew: That there was a Yelp deal on the Yelp app which offered you a $109 rate when you "checked in" to the location on the app. I did not discover this until it was too late.

We stayed here for a week for our vacation. The front desk staff was friendly and check-in was quick and easy. I had ordered a bottle of champagne when I booked as a special treat and it was waiting for us on ice when we arrived to our room along with glasses and a couple of chocolate truffles. Our room was large, clean, and tastefully decorated. It included a nice sitting area with a couch, coffee table, smaller table with two chairs, and a bar area with a sink, fridge, microwave, and coffee maker. The bathroom included a large garden-type bathtub and was sparkling clean.

The included breakfast was excellent. Besides having a good selection of the typical self-serve items that you usually find at hotels' complimentary breakfasts, there was also a cook on duty every morning making eggs, bacon, sausage, potatoes, and pancakes.

On Sunday morning there was a stack of complimentary newspapers waiting in the lobby, and on a couple of different weeknights there were complimentary snacks, beer, and wine in the lobby during the evening.

The hotel does not offer a shuttle to Disneyland, but they do sell tickets to the ART shuttle, which departs every hour at fifteen minutes past the hour. For the most part the shuttle was on time, and it was only $12 for a three day pass, which is probably a lot less than we would have spent on parking at Disneyland.

Overall, we are very satisfied with our stay at the Ayers. I would recommend it to couples or families who want a nice hotel for a reasonable price. If we're ever lucky enough to return to Disneyland, we'll certainly stay there.

Room Tip: Our fourth-floor room on the opposite side from the freeway was nice and quiet.

We stayed in the Ayres Hotel Anaheim for two nights in November 2012.

Check in was quick and friendly, and we were up in our room within a couple of minutes of arrival.

The rooms are large, and ours had two queen sized beds. The fit out is aging but is in good repair, and the rooms are kept very clean. Rooms had everything you would expect, along with an ironing board and a coffee machine. Wifi was quick and free, and there was a small fitness room if you are keen.

Breakfast was OK without being remarkable, with a selection of hot and cold dishes along with urns of coffee / tea. The hot cakes went down well with the kids, while I thought the crispy bacon was worth a second visit.

A negative for the hotel was the construction site next door - the room was literally shaking by 8am each day. Not a problem if you're packed up and off to Disney, but a bit of an issue if you are sleeping off some jetlag. It looks like the construction will last a while.

There are a few fast food places around the hotel, and a factory outlet complex about ten minutes stroll away.

A final tip - Don't miss the home baked cookies handed out in reception each night...they are served warm and are absolutely perfect to go with an evening coffee!

As an aside, my parents stayed at the Ayres for two weeks as part of an extended California trip, and they were absolutely delighted with it.

Room Tip: I would ask for something as far away from the construction site next door as you can get.

This was our first stay at the Ayres Anaheim and was based on the ratings it got on TripAdvisor. There is a reason this hotel is rated so high. We stayed for 8 nights and loved every minute of it. The staff were friendly, the hotel was spotlessly clean and the beds were heavenly. Hands down the best hotel bed we have ever slept in. We will be back.

I am so glad I went with my gut after reading so many positive reviews. I was not disappointed. I originally booked a king room for 3 nights but within a few hours after checking in, decided to extend our stay. The staff is friendly and accommodating, property is beautifully decorated and maintained, rooms are generous in size (except the compact bathroom), pool and hot tub very clean and the breakfast is excellent. We plan to use the ART shuttle for our journey into Disneyland which conveniently stops at the front door. This hotel far exceeds my expectations for off Disney property accommodations.

This was our first trip to LA and we are glad we chose the Ayres Hotel. The hotel is very comfortable and only a 15 minute shuttle ride to Disneyland. We specifically chose this hotel as we did not want to be right across the road and the reviews we read were very complimentary. We have to say that the previous reviewers are very accurate and this is a great hotel. The complimentary breakfast each morning was a fantastic way to start the day and the chef Jose always greeted you with a smile and made a great breakfast. Would recommend this hotel to anyone.

This was our first stay in the USA, as part of a 6 week holiday.
After the very long flight (14 hrs) this was a welcome sight and although we arrived before check-in we were able to go straight to the room. Room and the rest of the hotel was very clean and well presented. The housekeeping staff did a great job. Having the ART bus at the door made the daily trips to Disney a breeze and we also used the same ART bus from the hotel as a shuttle for other day trips just by changing to other routes at the Disney Park, very convenient and good value for money. We were very pleased to be able to stay away from the park area and the ART makes Ayers a great option. Had a front facing room but did not hear the highway at night.
The only disappointment for the 5 day stay was the lack of local knowledge of the reception staff. It seemed that any question we asked, such as "which bus do we catch for..." or "where is .." was met with the same response, "I don't know" or "I,m not sure". However this changed when Mai came on duty, she was what we expected, helpful and full of local knowledge.
Would recommend the hotel and stay again, just come prepared with your own local research.
