Please understand that I am normally a very positive person and rarely complain about things. BUT on the first night of my stay, in order to get at least some sleep I chose to move rooms at 230 in the morning because of noise (annoying beeping and banging) from the ongoing road construction on the freeway side of the hotel. The person manning the front desk acted somewhat disinterested in my trouble and said causally "yeah, the noise is only a problem at night".The two rooms I was offered both had an annoying smell. I chose one of the two rooms, moved all of my things and was back in bed by 4 am. The room was very musty and warm so I set the thermostat lower, but despite my efforts the room never cooled below 75 degrees. I was awakened at 530 am by an alarm that remained on and had been set by the previous occupant; unfortunately I forgot to check it. The shower water was so hot that I could barely shower; it was impossible to get cold water to come out of the shower faucet. I was able to get internet connection in the first room on the freeway side but even after several attempts (and a call with their IT support contractor), I never connected from the second room. I checked out and moved to a different hotel after the second night. I would NOT recommend this hotel at all.

Room Tip: Stay at a different hotel. If you have to stay here, never stay in a room on the freeway side because you won't know until it's really late that loud work will happen all night long. Make sure the a/c works well before you actually move your belongings in the room.

This was an excellent property. The property is well maintained. The decor is very classy. The service was excellent, It is within walking distance to nice restaurants and it is a close drive to Seal Beach and sand and the ocean! We would defnitiely stay there again and I would recommend to anyone.

This hotel is one of my favorites.....close enough to lots of things to do and see in the Long Beach area. The staff is always friendly and helpful. Note: Fresh baked cookies in the lobby every 20 minutes or so! Rooms are always super clean. Beds are comfortable and the price cannot be beat. There is a mini fridge in the room should you purchase snacks that need keeping...the standard continental breakfast make the entire package a good deal If you are looking for a gym and a pool, both are small. The gym consists of one treadmill and two other full body machines. The decor is Victorian mansion style with lots of oil painting down the hallways and floral tapestry and such...kinda reminds me of a grandmothers house! But time and again, I will stay at this hotel - its just good value, good location and good people taking care of you!

This was our first time staying in Seal Beach and after reading other reviews, chose to stay at the Ayres. It was a good choice...very pleasant staff, comfortable beds and super clean rooms. Great quality for the price and we did not have any noise issues with outside traffic or inside conference room as I read on another review...was perfect. No frills, but clean comfort and quick access to the freeway(and Disneyland) as well as many shops, restaurants and the beach. The only negative was the overpass construction which made traffic a bit tricky at times, but obviously that could not be helped. Will definitely stay here again.

Huge rooms, conveniently located to the 405 fwy with no traffic noise. Extremely clean, very friendly front desk. Nice touch to have a microwave, mini frig, and sitting area. While a Victorian decor is not "our thing", the furnishings were lovely, bed comfy, and breakfast with eggs, sausage, pancakes, french toast in a clean and open room made this hotel a good value and very pleasant experience for a one night stay.
