I have been staying here for years.. very consistent product... extremely friendly staff rarely changes over the years which should tell you something!! free drinks at happy hour in the lobby after a long day in the office, fresh baked cookies at night and a hearty buffet breakfast each morning to get your engines running.. home-away-from-home feel.. The rooms are spacious and beds are comfy. great value for money in Irvine Spectrum area.

Room Tip: corner rooms are larger, none are "bad"

I have stayed here many times over the years - visiting family at Leisure World/Laguna Wooods down the street, as have my family members, siblings, cousins and aunts. It is hands down the best hotel in the Laguna Woods area - comfy/homey feeling with all your creature comforts - free huge buffet breakfasts with make your own waffles, an omelette bar, and anything else you can think of for breakfast; on weekdays a complimentary wine and cheese reception; cookies every afternoon; free use of hotel computer; heated outdoor pool; microwave and refrigerator in room, free parking, free shuttle to and from John Wayne airport, and an unbeatable friendly hotel staff that is dedicated to serving the guest impeccably. Our first contact was with Minnie when the hotel first opened, as she was offering discounts for people visiting Leisure World, and she has consistently been the most gracious, courteous, and personable professional you can find in this industry. The Manager, Vince, is also tops, and frequently shows up at breakfast to say hello to guests. I love that they seem dedicated to keeping employees happy too, as I have noticed many of the same employees over the years - really a nice family business. Classical music and art and decor make it unique and I look forward to many returns.

Room Tip: Some rooms look over the courtyard which I think is lovely

Stay here at least 6 or more times per year for business. Always perfect in every way. Staff is super friendly and willing to do what ever it takes to keep us comfortable. Only thing missing is a full service restaurant, though their cook-to-order exceptional breakfast is the best and can keep you full for most of the day. Thanks for a great place to stay.

Room Tip: All rooms and beds are super comfy, but some have dividers between the queens and others have whirlp...

I travel for business to So. Ca 4 times a year and always book my stays at the Laguna Woods Ayres Hotel. The staff is exceptionally friendly, the rooms are large and have a microwave & frig in case you have left overs you want to re-heat later. The rooms are clean and the towels and linens are fresh. I like to start my day with a good breakfast and they offer a nice selection of both cold and hot items, including made to order option for eggs and omlets. The pool and hot tub area is a nice option if you have the time. The work out room is small, but they do offer both equipment (treadmills, eliptical and bike) a Universal machine and free weights. They also offer a nice 5-7 pm managers "special" where you can have a drink or light snack before going out for dinner. Vince is the manager and he mingles with the guests during breakfast, pouring fresh coffee and offering to get re-fills on your juice or tea - he make you feel special, and often remembers a returning face - even if it has been 3 months since the last stay. I look forward to my next stay at the Ayres.

Room Tip: An executive suite give you a king bed and also a couch sitting area so you can lounge and watch TV...

I've stayed at this particular Ayres Hotel 3 times for company meetings over the last 12 month period and I would highly recommend them. Rooms and linens were clean, good breakfast, easy parking, and an excellent staff that will accomodate you.

I would not hesitate to stay with them again and I have provided very positive feedback to our corporate events coordinator to use their services in the future.

Chose Laguna Ayres for wedding guests and ourselves to stay at while in CA. Great choice. Friendly, accommodating, going well beyond the call. Everything about the stay went well and no negatives heard from any of our guests. Thanks Ayres!
