“Stay To Visit New Granddaughter”
Reviewed May 1, 2014

This is our 3rd or 4th stay here. I love the plushness of this place. Every evening I look forward to the warm freshly baked cookies at the front desk. Every morning I enjoy their full breakfast served quickly and always with a big smile. This weekend a couple sports teams were there. We entered the breakfast room and groaned inwardly at the exceeding long line but were delighted that they served it with great efficiency and speed. On the opposite side of El Torro Rd is a Stater Brothers Grocery, Home Depot, Rite Aid and Office max. We stay here every time we visit my son's family since it is so convenient for the little items you bring to family. These businesses are not visible from the room except for in some rooms that have a view of the Home Depot sign. When we are in one of those rooms my husband goes to sleep and awakens with a smile on his face!

Room Tip: Get close to the warm cookies. The linens especially the duvets are very plush. It took us a bit of...

This is my 3rd stay at Ayres Laguna Woods. My first two was for brief business trips. This time, it's for a working vacation.

The pool and hot tub was a treat for my kids. Parking is plenty. The grounds are kept very clean.

This is a great hotel to stay in while in Laguna Woods. The employees are very professional and very helpful. The rooms are clean, and elegant. The breakfast in the morning by Alex and Fabiola and staff is fabulous!

A microwave, fridge, iron+ironing board, hair dryer is available in the room. Beds are comfortable. Wish the pillows were firmer, but that's ok.

They have a shuttle that picks you up at John Wayne Airport. Schedule your ride back to the airport with them, too.

We highly recommend this hotel. It was our 3rd time to stay, and it's been consistently fabulous!

Room Tip: Both the 2nd and 1st floors were fine for us.

We were absolutely thrilled with the accomodations and service at The Ayres. We are already booking our next trip, and will never stay anywhere else! The rooms are surprisingly spacious, and very well appointed.

My only suggestion would be to change to lounge chairs and sitting chairs in the patio. I understand they are good, sturdy quality - but very unfomfortable if you sit in them for any length of time. Add cushions, please!

We have family in Laguna Woods, and have stayed at the Ayres Laguna Woods for years. The rooms are clean, spacious, and well-equipped -- from the microwave and mini-fridge (yay!) to the incredibly comfortable beds with choice of pillows (double yay!) and upgraded (and free!) wifi. The staff has always been friendly, professional, welcoming, unfailingly helpful and a pleasure to work with. The breakfasts are delicious and the dining room staff always cheerful. The cookies at the end of the day are fantastic, and they have a great happy hour. Whenever I return, I feel like -- and they treat me like -- I'm coming back to my home away from home.

Was visiting family in Laguna Woods and took a chance because this was the closest hotel. I will definitely be back. All services are excellent and first-class from breakfast in the morning to the happy hour at night. The rooms are super clean and roomy and even have a microwave, small fridge and coffee maker. The manager and all employees are both professional and courteous and will help you in any way they can.

The hotel has great guest services! Extremely pleasant staff and a friendly environment. The room was clean and very spacious. The breakfast is great- you won't leave hungry! It's also nearby several restaurants, movie theater and a mall!
I've been using this Ayres Laguna Woods to book hotels for businessmen for about a year now and have never had a complaint.
I would recommend this hotel to any couple looking for a quiet weekend away and for the businessman looking for a quiet desk and chair for the evening.
