“Loved this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2013

We stayed at this hotel for 6 nights in room 217, and the entire stay was excellent. We took the ART shuttle to Disneyland (it stops there twice an hour), which was about a 10-15 min drive. The rooms were large, clean and quiet. Bathroom included an over-size bathtub, however, the water pressure of the shower was very low. Beds were very comfortable.
The continental breakfast was good - lots of options and their own chef - the hot options did change a little over the week, but it was mostly scrambled eggs, bacon or sausage, potatoes and pancakes or french toast. Coffee was not very good at all! It got very busy on weekends and when Spring Break started.
We used the pool once, but it was very cold and obviously not heated.
Also it is not located close to any stores or restaurants except for the pub next door.
Staff were very friendly. I would definitely stay here again!

My wife, 3 yr old son and I just returned from a 4 day vacation at the Ayres Hotel Anaheim. Now I know why it was number 1 on Trip Advisor. The hotel was nice and clean and check in was fast and easy. The rooms were nice and comfortable. Our room faced Disneyland so we were able to see the fireworks show at night. The hotel is near the Angels Stadium and right across the street from the Honda Center. Breakfast in the morning was very good with the chef working very hard to get everybody fed quickly, Kudos to him ! The menu changed daily, which was really nice. We never made it to the afternoon manager's stuff, but everything else was great. The shuttle ride from the hotel to Disneyland was nice and quick. All in all, I have to say that we had a great time here and we would definitely stay here again !

Stayed 4 nights on a side trip to Disney. Hotel was clean, quiet and has a quick shuttle to Disneyland. It is also very close to the Anaheim stadiums. B-fast was included and was good. French toast, eggs, bacon, pasties, etc. menu changes. Pool was fine.

We recently returned from an awesome Disneyland vacation and stayed 10 nights at the Ayres Hotel Anaheim. There is a reason it is number one on Trip Advisor. The hotel is great, rooms are pretty big, clean and very comfortable. The breakfast is really good with lots to choose from and they have happy hour in their lobby every Mon-Thurs evening with free beer/wine and chips and salsa, a nice touch. The staff was very friendly. The hotel is quiet even though you are quite close to the freeway and the Honda Center even on game night. The ART shuttle picks you up right outside the lobby door for a very reasonable price and has only 1-2 stops before you get dropped off at the Disney gates. We didn't miss staying close to Disney at all and I didn't miss walking back to a hotel after a hard Disney day, just time the shuttle right and hop on for a quick 15 min ride back to the hotel

The best thing we can say about this hotel is that we would definitely come back on subsequent visits to this area of the US. The location is good with respect to DLand and neighbouring attractions. The hotel is very quiet - no noise from slamming doors, screaming kids, traffic, etc. Its located near a freeway exit/entry which is great but you get no noise in the room from that freeway. The laundry facilities are good and breakfast is more than adequate, albeit a bit squeezy in the breakfast room with the chunky "period" chairs. We would recommend to others especially small families. There is a half decent restaurant next door - JD Schmidt - Jill is the very nice waitress.

I am a former road warrior, and have stayed in many hotels. I found this property well managed, clean and kept up. I requested ajoining rooms and were given such. The rooms were clean, simple. The staff was friendly, food was good, parking not an issue. I will be honest,if you are expecting the Ritz this is not where you want to be. However, with the prices of hotels in the area this is a great deal. You get extras you would have to pay for somewhere else (breakfast, internet and parking as examples. All part of your room fee here)
Having stayed in more elaborate properties, I was pleased. My dad had a few issues with his AC in their room, but the staff did make an appearance and offered a suggestion. While it did not fix the problem 100%, it did improve greatly and everyone slept comfortably.
I will say that the property does not have any kid activities, but be honest. If you are coming to Anaheim you are probably going to Disney and you are hardly at the hotel. That is what we experienced, so the lack of kids activities was not an issue for us.
One last note. While the drive to Disney was not bad at all (10 minutes max for us) you are not really near much. A car is highly recommended if you plan on seeing more than Disney. The property is next to the Honda center and one restaurant that we saw. I'm not saying this was bad, I'm just saying that had we not had the car rental we would have had limited dinner options.

I probably would have given a better review but our room was not great. We were on the corner of the 3rd floor and the noise at night was bad, I couldn't sleep, kept waking up. Also, it was impossible to close window curtains and we saw big neon all night which made sleep less comfortable.
Other than that, the people at the front desk were very nice and helpful, the place was clean and the breakfast was good.

AyresMgr, General Manager at Ayres Hotel Anaheim, responded to this review, March 25, 2013
Dear Morning_Blossom,

Thank you for posting your review. I am sorry that the hotel did not meet your expectations. We rarely receive noise complaints so you were particularly unfortunate and I am sorry that you were disturbed. Typically the white noise from the air-conditioning masks any external noise. From your description I can tell which rooms you may have been staying in and you would have had two large windows, so I can imagine the light from the neon sign was a great inconvenience. All of our rooms do have a set of black out drapes which are located right behind the sheer curtains. The large green curtains that you spoke of are purely ornamental. The black out drapes are 100% effective in screening the light and also help with noise.

I hope that you will consider staying with us again and that you will enjoy the night's sleep that so many of our guests rave about.

Best regards,

Marcus Collins
General Manager
