“Very nice, clean place close to many attractions”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

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.

Outstanding hotel experience! All staff members were very courteous and competent. The property is very clean, has a rich decorum with an enjoyable classical music sound track quietly playing, and is well maintained. Our Suite style room was very nice, clean and comfortable. Included in the room rate is a quality breakfast. This Ayres Hotel & Suites is only a 5 minute shuttle van ride from John Wayne / Santa Ana Airport. Be aware that the hotel is located very near the end of the airport runway and the aircraft take off noise is noticeable, however, it is short term and tolerable. Only a 10 minute drive to Newport Beach, 10 minute drive to a shopping mall or expanded restaurant selection, 14 miles (40 minute CA drive) to Disneyland. I highly recommend this hotel!

We just wrapped up a GREAT 10 day stay at the Ayres Hotel and Suites
I cant remember a 10 day hotel stay that I didn't find at least have one or two things to complain about!! Well not at the Ayres property.
The place is in a good location to get around, the rooms are clean and spacious, the staff is awesome from front desk to food and maid service!!!

I would highly recommend this hotel for any type of stay.

PS the flight pattern for SNA goes over the hotel but starts around 7AM and ends at around 9PM so there are some times when the pool or courtyard areas get noisy!! Still great!

Room Tip: All rooms looked equally good. There are a few that overlook the courtyard and pool that would be...
