“A nice clean hotel with a friendly staff!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

The Ayres hotel is where I stay when visiting my family is Southern California. It is close to their home but even more important, it is quiet and clean. The rooms just feel less of a "hotel room" and more of a "guest room". The staff is great and accommodating. I would definitely recommend the Ayres hotel if you are looking for a place to stay in the Seal Beach/Rossmoor area.

Ayres is a very nice hotel, great pool and hot tub. The breakfast was better than most free breakfast-we didnt realize we could have ordered an omelet but apparently you can do that. The hotel is close proximity to freeway and to other stores and restaurants.

The Ayres Seal Beach boasts large, clean rooms, a friendly staff and a great free breakfast. While its location right on 405 offers easy access to all the area has to offer, the hotel is still a peaceful oasis. A great value! We will stay again.

Hot breakfast and they even make eggs the way you want. Well decorated. Also there is shopping close by. Across the street is a restaurant which is really good - sphagetinni
Hotel staff was very friendly and the rooms were clean. Overall I truly enjoyed my stay and plan to stay there again.

This is such a nice hotel! Everything is so clean and pretty. The staff is very helpful and I would and will stay here again. Its not too far from the beach and it is very close to shopping. I thought because it was so close to the freeway that it would be loud be that was to problem!

I love its old world charm and the luxurious ambiance. I sleep really good in the comfortable bed every time I stay at Ayres Seal Beach. The breakfast is the best hotel breakfast I've ever had! And just as an added plus, the room air conditioner is quiet and efficient.
