I've stayed here twice now in the last month. Friendly and efficient at reception. Rooms are large and comfortable and quiet. Nicely appointed if a little too fussy and old-fashioned for my taste. Not stylish with clean lines. But high quality linens and beds, etc. This is not W or Westin, but neither is the price. Plus free parking and...

I have stayed at this hotel several times while attending a yearly conference at UC Irvine. It is conveniently located, It has great service, and the staff is very friendly and helpful. I walked to campus through on the bike path and it was beautiful. The food at the court was great, coming from the midwest it felt great to...

The service and rooms at the Ayres are excellent. The staff are polite and helpful in general. While we were there there were some drunk, noisy guests. When we complained about being woken in the middle of the night, action was only taken when my husband threatened to call the police. We were subsequently given a complimentary night. However, there...

I always stay at the Ayres Hotel & Suites in Costa Mesa. In the multiple times I have stayed here, my assigned room was always clean and fresh, and the staff is always pleasant and helpful. I like to fly in to John Wayne Airport (SNA), and this Ayres is just across State Highway 73 at the end of the...

The plus points: it's close to the airport, offers a free shuttle bus, the courtyard and the staff are extremely helpful and cheerful. The minuses: it's tired and needs a bit of TLC, it's dated in virtually all decor, the breakfast....... which was advertised as a buffet is a sad and sorry excuse............. yet costs $14............... two items on offer...

This hotel is very nice. We were upgraded to a suite and appreciated the extra space in the room and the bathroom. Staff was very friendly. We ate at the restaurant for breakfast and dinner and both were good. The only drawback is that it is near the John Wayne Airport so the noise was a bit of a distraction,...

The hotel is well appointed and clean, and the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. I was concerned that the nearby airport traffic would be noisy, but there must be restrictions on evening and early morning flights. I slept fine! I had a lovely dinner in the hotel restaurant one night, but otherwise dined out or grabbed a quick breakfast...

It is an airport location hotel. Staff was friendly, parking was limited when full, and the gas station along property had guys sleeping around it hugging their liquor bottles and luggage. By morning I watched another dog through a dumpster. The eating options in close proximity are limited but there is a good sushi place. The room had the A/C...

The hotel is well kept. The staff are friendly. The food is good. For the cost of a room night, it is a truly exceptional property. The room itself was very pleasant and adorned in non "antiseptic" boring "chain" hotel furnishings. I had a lovely stay.
