“A step back into mid-20th Century feel, yet the ammenities of the 21st”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

This is definitely one of my favorite hotels. The Decor makes you feel that you just stepped back into the 40's and 50's. But not just any standard hotel back then, into one of the most luxurious, well appointed "5" Star hotels of that era. Feeling like a dignitary, you stroll to your room. The Decor never misses, and continues the feeling right up to the Pillows used on the Bedding. The Pools and Hot Tubs are always well maintained, the workout room is great, and the Restaurant is also well done.

You will definitely not be disappointed with the price, amenities, great personable staff, Shuttle services and the list goes on...

Room Tip: Ask for a suite in the second building. They are nicely appointed and only a few $$ more.

We've stayed in 2 other Ayres' properties before, and were excited to find one in the area that we were visiting this time (Costa Mesa). This one is very new, but is shaping up to be as excellent as the others that we've visited.

This property was just as friendly, well appointed, and organized as the other 2, and the staff has been fabulous at each site. Breakfast was excellent, with a good selection of healthy food, for vegetarians and meat-eaters alike. Thank you!!

Room Tip: Every room is good. There was a wedding going on downstairs, and we never had a problem with the par...

Very nice clean room, very close to the Huntington Beach, comfortable beds and nice jetted bathtub. Breakfast was excellent and a superior customer and front desk service. We will stay in this location again..

The staff at the Costa Mesa Ayres should teach other hotels about customer service! From the front desk, the restaurant and cleaning staff, they couldn't be better. The hotel is beautiful, extremely convenient from John Wayne airport, and amazing for the price. Food in the restaurant was good as well. You come away feeling valued as a customer. Also, there is a nature preserve nearby for biking (bike rental at the hotel), joggin, or walking. Great! Definitely coming again.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the busy street.

The weeklong stay was fabulous. Breakfast was excellent but missing some sausages.
Bed was like home! It is compared to my sleep number bed. Staff was very very nice and very pleasant. Amenities are so convenient! Close to airport and UCI. Shuttle drivers are great!
I felt safe in this hotel, even though I did not see a security guard roaming around even in the wee hours! Love it! Love it! We will definitely comeback and spread the news! Highly recommended!

Room Tip: 1st floor rooms are great! Close and convenient to everything!

Great hotel in Costa Mesa...20 minutes to Disneyland and 15 mins to Newport Beach...great location and very reasonably priced. Stayed in a Jr Executive Suite...nice size, clean, comfortable beds...only con was shower water pressure was lacking. Kids loved both pools and the comp breakfast was good. Free parking...what else can you ask for. Would recommend to my friends and family.

This was a weekend trip away for just the weekend. The hotel, employeesand free breakfast guffet was all very good. Our only complaint was that they had a high school volleyball tournament nearby and it could be noisy at times. We realize there was just lots of teenage girls around and it was just their nature. Highly recommend this hotel!
