“Ayres Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

The Ayres Hotel is great for those visiting Laguna Woods. The hotel offers a special discount when you have business at the Laguna Woods complex (formerly Leisure World). They offer a complimentalry breakfast and the rooms are large and well appointed. We have stayed there a few times and are never disappointed with the hotel and service.

The comfort and service of a boutique hotel at half the price.
The breakfast is not only convenient, but is our first choice compared to local restaurants.
The terrace is open for breakfast in nice weather, a very soothing way to start the day.

This Ayres is a short walk from Gate-7, Laguna Woods Village. I have been using the hotel since it was built, and I have tried a couple of others, once. The Ayres’ comforts, class, staff, and extremely nice (free) buffet breakfast dining room put it way above other places I’ve tried in the area. Just across El Toro are a major supermarket, Pharmacy, Office Supply and other businesses. On the Ayres side are at least two restaurants, with countless more just down the street. And yet, the Ayres is a very quiet place. The dining room, used primarily for breakfast, has at least 3 freshly prepared hot items (meat, eggs, and potatoes) and a chef who can prepare custom variations. Juice, coffee, fruits, milk, waffle makers, and great seating round it out. As others have said, the beds are so good that Ayres may sell the mattresses (something like Dream Sleeper Pillow Top).

This is an elegant, very clean hotel. Rooms are spotless and comfortable, great bed. Breakfast is more than generous. Staff is helpful, enthusiastic and friendly. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in the area.

This was the best hotel I've stayed in. The rooms and hotel and beautifully decorated and the staff did their best to put me in lower floor room with a slider to the beautiful pool and spa. The breakfast is superb. Everything is tasty and fresh and omelets are made to order. I would definitly reccomend this hotel to anyone in Orange County.

I had the opportunity to stay at the Ayes recently, and had another fantastic experience. There were a few issues that came up for me (my issues, not to do with them) and they went out of their way to help me resolve them. It was so great.

The hotel has the best beds around, a wonderful breakfast, the location can't be beat (easy access to the beaches, LA, San Diego, Disneyworld, shopping, wherever), lovely decor, great fitness room, clean pool, reasonable rates -- but it's the great staff that makes it exceptional.

I love staying there and high;y recommend it!

Room Tip: It depends on what you like -- there really isn't a bad room. Some people like overlooking the p...

A great hotel. Helpful staff, very nice rooms, free parking, free wifi all add up to a very good bargain for staying in the L.A. area. I have stayed at a ton of hotels in southern California, and this hotel is at the very top of the heap. I will be staying here again, as well as at any other Ayres property.
