We had a good time at Ayres and our best impression was in dealing with Belen, the morning chef. She was gracious and had a great smile. A lovely lady to say the least! No task was too small for her and she took ownership with everything she did. Were we an employer we would hire her away in a flash. The rest of the staff were excellent as well making for a nice stay. We went through Hotwire but will call direct the next trip.

We were displaced from our home during major repairs and decided to stay at the Ayers. Everyone was very courteous and the grounds were relaxing after a long day. Food at the Modjeska was very good and service is top notch. All staff were very friendly and accomodating, it was like staying with family.

I have stayed here a handful of times & every time I do, I almost don't want to leave! :-)

The staff REMEMBERS MY NAME...which speaks volumes to me about any business. That is a rare occurrence nowadays. The hotel & rooms are extremely clean & the rooms are stylish & super comfortable. Housekeeping always does a wonderful job at 'cleaning up', too.

The ONLY 'drawback' for me was the lack of an all day/night room service feature. The restaurant in the hotel had limited hours. I had a friend meet me at 2pm for a drink only to find out the restaurant didn't open until 4pm. Other than this, the hotel is wonderful!

Room Tip: I stayed on the 3rd floor overlooking the courtyard. LOVED IT! What a beautiful little area it is.

Pleasant Staff. Fantastic room and facility. Easy access to freeway. This is as nice as it gets. I would recommend this to any of my friends. We will be staying here again. We have family that live in Mission Viejo and this is, without question, our preferred choice for a hotel. Much nicer that the Courtyard by Marriott that is up the street.

Room Tip: No Tip. All the same.

A little bit out of the way but that was okay. Small mall just down the road with a great Italian restaurant (Picollo) which I highly recommend. The hotel is clean and pleasant. Only downside that I could see was the bar and restaurant seemed to have limited opening.....Saturday lunchtime there was nothing available and Sunday there is no dinner service. That said, they will recommend companies that deliver food
Staff were excellent and thanks to Didi who gave me an upgrade on arrival....sweet !

I live out of state, but work one full week per month in So. Calif. I stay at this Ayres for the entire week, and have been doing this from Dec 2011 - Feb 2013. The place is ALWAYS super clean, the staff members are always friendly, I get wireless connection throughout the entire building and the price can't be beat. During the evenings, I can work from my laptop in the outdoor courtyard area (connect to the internet), enjoy the fresh air, bubbling water fountain & warm fire pit. The breakfast includes made to order omelets or breakfast burrito, or you can just help yourself to the warm breakfast buffet - which includes a "make it yourself" waffle iron. This is a super place to stay.
