I stay here when visiting family in the area (have stayed several times over the past few years). Once, when visiting, I stayed in another slightly cheaper hotel and quickly learned my error and returned to Ayres on my next visit. It's in the suburbs (about a 45 minute drive from downtown LA and Hollywood). It is in a nice area (I was safely able to go for a long jog by myself in a nearby neighborhood). There is shopping and restaurants nearby. It is also a 10 minute drive from Seal Beach. Lovely beach with a pier to walk down and little shops to visit... and relax on a sand in the sun as well! I don't know if there is much sightseeing around the area, but that's not our main reason for traveling there.
The decor is up-to-date, the rooms have always been clean, the hotel is quiet (I think it is often used for business travel). Hot breakfast is included each morning. The cook was able to tell me what had and did not have gluten, so I could navigate the breakfast buffet successfully. During the week, there is a happy hour in the late afternoon with free drinks (wine, beer, pop, water) and snacks (cheese, crackers, chips, veggies). If we've been out all day, it's a nice and free thing to do to relax. There is a pool, hot tub, and small fitness room. We'll be back!
