“Great hotel and great location”
Reviewed August 28, 2010

We stayed here because our son is starting college nearby. Hotel was wonderful. Close to all, very nice and helpful staff, charming court yard with good restaurant. Will definitely stay here again. We booked a package incl flight with Expedia and it was a great deal.

I originally booked my trip for a deluxe room with a king size bed. After coming in late at night I was put in an unclean handicapped room with a queen size bed. Having spent the night on the couch after the hotel was "sold out", I tried to change the room but was unable to do so. The sold out status was not the case as one could buy a room online. And the staff was completely unaccommodating. Buyer beware!

Came here with my family on my first trip to OC last year and it was a terrific stay. The hotel is very close to John Wayne airport yet the hotel was quiet and you could barely hear the planes flying.
Excellent service from staff and everyone was very friendly.
We stayed for one week in July and had a room with two queen beds that faced the pool. The beds were soooo comfortable I didn't want to get up! Breakfast is included in price and was buffet every morning with the usual selections like eggs, bacon, and the occasional surprise like Chilaquiles!
Hotel has two good sized pools, jacuzzi's and offers free cookies in the lobby.
We found it to be a great location to Newport Beach and the rest of OC.
Free parking and wifi too.

This is just about the nicest place I have ever stayed. The staff was super courteous, the room was wonderful, the breakfast superb, the bed soft but not flimsy. The only problem we had was a toilet that had a flush lever that tended to stick causing the water to run.

I was a bit wary of the Ayres from other reviewers' description of its location next to John Wayne airport.

But the airplane noise was almost unnoticeable after dark, and the Ayres has to be the best value in Orange Co. -- free parking, free full breakfast, afternoon cookies, two pools and hot tubs, fitness center, etc. And a very nice European courtyard too. What an incredible value!

Just recently stayed one night at this hotel, and was not impressed. Based on the many good reviews, thought perhaps it had changed from years ago when I stayed there. It hasn't!!!!

Badly in need of an update on all things.The front desk was very friendly,and my husband enjoyed the breakfast, even though the dining room where it was served belongs in another era. Will give them an E for effort.It is like time has stood still for this property. It was clean though, which is a plus.

Ayres Hotels are truly unique from any other hotel company I have stayed at. It is not a huge corporation that franchises their hotels; each hotel is owned an operated by Ayers Hotels. Pretty much like a mom and pop's hotel chain. Everything here is excellent and I truly have nothing to complain about. The hotel is located in nice quiet area with easy access to the freeway. The hotel and restaurant staff is excellent. The room was like staying in royalty and the bed was very comfortable. Rooms are equipped with super high speed internet access and the hotel has a great gym. There is also Wi-Fi throughout the hotel. You will not regret your stay here or any other Ayers hotel and it is nice to finally stay at a hotel that you truly don't want to leave. Have a good one, cheers!!
