3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Clean room. Friendly staff. Room was quiet until next door guests arrived late. Walls seemed paper thin. Same guest were up to depart early 6 am. Woman stood in front of our door screaming at "Wesley ". To come back. A toddler I assume. After 20 minutes they left Overall too noisey for my sister and I.

It was very clean and quiet. The bed and pillows were very comfortable and i had great sleep. I love that there are restaurants and stores in walking distance. Overall, my stay at Ayres Lodge Alpine was great.

Excellent as usual. Very clean helpful staff. One comment - the breakfast was not as it was previously, only yogurt, pastry, and cereal. Nothing hot like breakfast sandwiches or waffles like our last trip, last September. Thanks.

Nice clean hotel. Half the price of staying further into the city of San Diego. It's a bit of a drive to the beach and other places, but for the cost of the hotel it's worth it. Will stay again next time I'm in town. Hotel gave our family (we had several staying there) a discount as we were traveling... More

Our stay at the Ayers was absolutely marvelous! The room was very clean. The staff was great and accommodating. The cookies in the evening were delicious. The grounds were well kept, quiet and serene.

This is our second stay at Ayres and as before it is clean, spacious, and comfortable. You won't be sorry. The staff is friendly. The only thing that could use a little something is the breakfast offered, however, thy make up for it with fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies in the evening.

Just an average place for a night's stay. We were in Alpine for the weekend and thought this would be a good place to relax. Nothing much to do at the hotel (very small pool; not much of a lounging area; small and noisy lobby, etc.). Room was clean. Staff was friendly. The morning breakfast was not a breakfast; just...

I booked the lodge not knowing any thing about the property ( my dog with me). All in all, staff very accommodating (baked cookies at the front desk-yum) great parking for my truck, rooms were clean & nice - not to mention pet friendly areas around the property. I will be visiting again soon.
