“A great place to stay near the airport”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

The facility is lovely and smells nice, it feels like an upscale hotel but not too pricey. The staff are very nice. The friendly desk agent Gina helped me out when my reservation had been accidentally cancelled, and she got me another room right away. The included breakfast was very good, a full hot buffet with bacon and eggs and oatmeal and fruit. I will definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Although it is near the freeway the room I had was quiet - 116, near the beautiful pool.

I always stay here when I have meetings or events in the area. The rooms are spacious, the beds, linens and pillows are luxurious, the breakfast is always nice and the prices are reasonable, what more could you ask for? What I really like about this hotel is that I get a good nights sleep, not always the case at other hotels.

We spent 3 nights at the Ayres hotel. If you can get one of the one bedroom suites you will be happy. This is an older, very well maintained hotel. None of the typical smells in many OC/LA hotels. I really like the courtyard where you can eat or just relax around the fountain and flowers. When outside your room you will likely hear the planes from John Wayne airport take off. If you are staying there on a busy weekend, you may not be able to check in before 3 PM. Our 3rd floor one bedroom suite was very nicely decorated, clean and Quiet. You are only a couple miles from World Class shopping at the South Coast Plaza. About 5 minutes from Newport Beach and 20 minutes to Disneyland and Knott's Berry Farm. I might add if you are flying into the area, the John Wayne Airport (SNA) is by far a better choice than LAX. Ayres Hotel is a great choice for Orange County visitors.

Room Tip: If you are staying more than one night, get a one bedroom suite if possible.

So far, this is our favorite hotel in SoCal. The service is excellent, it is beautiful. It was close to everyplace we had to be in Irvine, as well as a quick trip to the beaches and Disneyland. Also, their complimentary breakfast is excellent with a variety of choices.

Room Tip: It would be nice to have a room overlooking one of the courtyards.

We have made a habit of staying at Ayres every time we visit the Orange County area. The overall value cannot be beat. The complimentary breakfast is a big bonus, the rooms are nice, location is great, and the hotel staff is beyond helpful. This time we dined in the restaurant and enjoyed that as well.

Had a chance to stay for a few nights & the overall room was ok, location was so so & found out the hard way that the John Wayne airport is right next to this hotel. The take off planes rumbled the room (as well as anyone that can't sleep thru an earthquake) at 7am sharp! The continental breakfast was ok. We have stayed at a few other Ayres & we have always had a great stay. May think twice about this location for the future.
