“Great first impression & lasting throughout our stay”
Reviewed May 31, 2012

Let's get the less than desireable portion over with first! Pillow cases are strange, as they feel rough on the face. Asked for something softer, but this is all they have. Old fashioned heat and air unit on the floor. You would think the guests eating the complimentary breakfast hadn't eaten in days. Crowding around and in front of other people, over flowing food on their plates like it was going to be taken away from them at any moment. It was too crazy and crowded for me.

Very attractive lobby (as they usually are) but smaller than the photo shows. Incredibly clean, attractive and good condition furnishings. Front desk employees are very professional acting and kind. We had executive king room on 6th floor facing the freeway. The room is larger than others and again, VERY clean. All furnishings went well together and in great shape. A separate area offers small frig, microwave and sink. The bathroom is pretty small, but so clean. No stains in the bath, it tub new. Bedding was in near new condition. I have to say this is the cleanest room I have ever stayed in.

Room Tip: I think rooms opposite the fwy., would be quieter.

We usually stay at the Aryes in Seal Beach but they were sold out. I'll start with the good, the staff were great. The rooms were tiny and smelled. The bathroom door was dirty. While we were eating a panhandler came into the breakfast area and asked for money for coffee. After someone took him over to the coffee pot he got mad, cursed and walked out. We won't stay here again.

We loved our stay at the Ayres Inn Orange! The staff was very friendly, and although they were completely booked the night before our arrival, checked us in early. We absolutely loved Luis at the front desk. He was so kind and helpful, we felt great being greeted by him after our long days at Disney. The breakfast was perfect every morning with sausage or bacon (alternating), potatoes, scrambled eggs, salsa, shredded cheese, pancakes, various cereals, milk, juices, various breads and bagels for toasting (with cream cheese and peanut butter), coffee cake and a huge bowl of delicious mixed melon pieces. The breakfast seating area was very large, but we wound up eating on the patio most mornings. Also, fresh, hot chocolate chip cookies every evening at the front desk. The ONLY thing that was less than great was the small size of the bathroom and it had no ventilation fan. We will stay at an Ayres property whenever we can on future vacations.

Everything about our stay was positive. The only caution to offer--the fitness center only has room for four people. But the front desk helped me get on line when I couldn't, the cookies are always a plus, and I enjoyed the comfortable lobby for reading in the early mornings with coffee from nearby Starbucks. Apparently there are plans to build an adjoining high-rise, so a larger fitness center might be included.

Room Tip: If the users of the exercise room don't close the doors the noise for nearby rooms might be anno...

We stayed for a week and were very satisfied. Rooms were absolutely clean, staff at the front desk was always helpful. Only minus is the sound of ambulance cars getting to the hospital near by, get a room facing the other side if possible. Very close to Disneyland, Angel Stadium and I-5!

We have enjoyed the Ayers company for years and we find their hotels and Inns always excellent quality for the money. This time we stayed at the Ayres Inn Orange, one of their older properties which is still very nice. We love the beautiful European style of the lobby, the fresh hot cookies when you arrive. The superb hot breakfast which is included features scrambled eggs, bacon or sausage, pancakes, potatoes, cereal, bagels, juice, coffee, fresh fruit, hot cereal. I only wish they served for another hour - it's 6:30-9 right now. But sometimes you just want to sleep in longer.

One major change is their shuttle is part of the Disney shuttle service and costs $4.00 per day per person. We decided with four of us to pay for Disney parking at $15.00 day instead.

Our room was clean, (2 queens) lovely large TV, clean bathroom. WiFi. And the STAFF was great. Always smiling and helpful.

I will continue to stay at an Ayers Hotel whenever in So. California and highly recommend.

Room Tip: Right off Hwy 5 so easy access to Disneyland. No noise problems for us at all. We didn't have...

Ayres Orange is always my first choice for staying in the Anaheim area. The staff are friendly and helpful, they have a pretty good hot breakfast with everything you would need, the pool is great, the rooms are perfectly adequate with wifi and very comfy beds, and you can't beat the location. I've been staying here for a few years now. I also get a good rate when staying here, so that is important to me. They do have frigs in the room, but still no microwave - but there is one on the 2nd floor you can pop your food, popcorn etc. in. That is about the only thing I wish they would add...

Room Tip: I always ask for an upper floor away from the elevator for a quiter nights rest.
