Ayres Hotel & Suites in Costa Mesa - Newport Beach

Reviewed August 26, 2011

After having lived in Orange County for 30 years and then moving away when I came back for a visit with several things to do in the OC my choice of hotel was Ayres Hotel & Suites in Costa Mesa.

I had met with their staff prior to moving, when still working, and they offered wonderful benefits for our travelers from across the country. So when I had a need to visit I contacted the Sales staff and was provided with the same warm welcome on a personal level.

My husband and I will be back in Orange County in October for a number of appointments and we can once again be found at the Ayres Hotel & Suites in Costa Mesa

Room Tip: All of their rooms are the best rooms!

This place is conveniently located on the edges of Costa Mesa, Irvine and Newport Beach. It is very clean and comfortable. Parking and breakfast, which was pretty good, are included in the room rate - something that few other hotels in the area offer. The quality of the service is exemplified by the fact that the crib (porta-crib) we requested was in the room before we checked in. Those of you who travel with small children recognize that this is uncommon. We will happily stay here again.

Great rooms, very clean and comfortable. The beds are wonderful, you feel like your on a cloud. They have an excellent complimentary buffett breakfast. They offer so many choices you stand there for a moment to take it all in. You have your choice of scrambled eggs, potatoes, bacon, fruit, french toast or pancakes, cold cereal, pastries and the most delicious hot oatmeal. The staff in general are very friendly and courteous, but the breakfast group are amazing. It's in a nice part of Orange County, close to freeways and about 20 minutes from some nice beaches. We've stayed here many times over the past few years. Lovely place to get away to. We are looking forward to our next visit.

I stayed at the hotel for a friend's wedding anniversary party. The hotel easily transferred the reserved room into my name and made the changes needed for the number of days that I was staying. The hotel has 2 separate buildings and it is looking a little aged but in very good repair. The room had a musty smell that did not dissipate when we turned the AC on. Luckily, we had an operable window so we just opened the window. It is a bit odd that there are no screens on the window (or anything to keep someone from falling out!).

Our bed and linens were comfy and the shower was good. It is a nice place to stay, nothing special but the staff is friendly. I did not eat at the breakfast (did not really understand that it was included or I might have). If you miss the hotel driveway, you have to go quite a long way to turn around and get back to the hotel (about 1 mile).

Our room was very clean and comfortable.
The shuttle service was very convenient.
Shuttle service was provided to the airport & the South Coast Mall.
We enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay at this hotel again.

My daughter and I stayed at this hotel while we were vacationing in Ca. It is so nice and clean and we still talk about how comfortable the beds were. It was like sleeping in a cloud. This will be the place I stay on my return trip to Ca.

Ayres Hotel & Suites is conveniently located just minutes away from the Orange County/John Wayne Airport on Bristol Street offers the look and feel of a boutique French country inn surrounded by freeway, shopping and beach convenience. I've stayed here several times since it opened as Countryside Inns & Suites and it's still my preference over the nearby big-name chain hotels. There are large & suite rooms, 2 pools, fitness center, free internet, free parking, free airport shuttle and a restaurant/bar serving breakfast, lunch and dinner indoors and outside by the lovely central fountain. The staff is friendly, welcoming and you can linger for hours in the cobbled courtyard or elegant lobby. There's a beautiful life-size cloisonne sheep and tapestries in the lobby. I feel at home here.

Room Tip: Rooms off the lobby may offer more seclusion; the larger suites around the central pool, quiet by ev...
