Stayed here a few times and really enjoy the hotel, it is always clean and the staff is very friendly. kids really enjoyed the 7pm cookie reception!! Definitely recomend and will continue to stay here.
The complimentary shuttle to and from the Viejas Outlets and Casino runs 24 hours a day, this is a great thing, since you don't have to do alot of driving. Hotel is in a very good location with restaurants and stores within very close walking distance.

Nice and quiet. Breakfast service not very pleasant. I think the guy preparing the breakfast must have been having a bad morning or something. The hotel is very nice. I would definitely stay again. Just stay out of the little guys' way who is preparing breakfast. He is not a morning person. Everyone else there was great.

We rode up on our motorcycles on Saturday. Love the stay. Rooms are awsome and restaurants are close by. Don't really have to leave the hotel area. Everything you need is there. Definitely will be back soon.

We were traveling from San Diego to Phoenix and knew we would soon be running out of options for a place to stay. We decided to take a chance on the Alpine exit and happened upon Ayres Lodge Alpine. With it not being a well known place to stay, we weren't sure what to expect. We found the grounds to be very unique, our room was very neat and clean. It was easy access off the freeway. Staff was friendly and helpful and the price was affordable for a family. With not knowing anything about this area at all, we were very pleased with all aspects of this chance stop we happened to make.

Clean, but smaller room size. Country feel to the place. Location in a small shopping center.
Easy to get to from freeway exit. Staff was friendly and timely with service. Bed could be updated. Cleaning crew did turn off the heat, so when we came back the room was chilly.

Room Tip: ask for front side of hotel.

Beautifully landscaped, very nicely maintained. It is a great value for the room (we got the Valentine's promotion), which knocked 10% off plus a complimentary bottle of Champagne. I will return to this hotel, as it is in a very beautiful, quiet and serene environment.

I was thrilled to stay @ the Ayres, having stayed @ the Aliso Viejo location, but The Alpine lodge was unlike it the other locations.

Its located right next to the freeway, so beware of fwy noise if staying on the "courtyard" side.

The room wasn't cleaned properly, there was hair in the bathroom walls and door!

Will not be staying there again!
