Staff at the restaurant and bar made our stay extra enjoyable! I will definitely be back! It was a pleasant surprise. Lots of character, warm and friendly. Both my friend and I agreed. We ended up having all of our meals there.

The desk was efficient, helpful, and very friendly. A bit of a walk to the room as there were an abundance of corridors. The restaurant was great for breakfast, but was the same thing each morning :( The room was very clean, spacious and an abundance of TV channels! The main dislike was the parking, as the parking spaces were... More

I recently attended a Board meeting at this facility. The room was simple, but met our needs. We had lunch catered by the in-house provider. The service was excellent and food delicious. Looking over the common areas, it was very clean, nicely decorated, and quiet. I imagine this would be a nice place to stay. I'm so convinced that this... More

Everyone here makes your experience more like a visit to family than a hotel. In fact we stay here several times a year and from management down to the servers in the restaurant, it's always special occasion. By far my favorite hotel and we travel a lot!

So, while this hotel was ideally situated for our purposes, the breakfast buffet is pretty poor--tasteless eggs and tasteless bacon. The larger issue for us were the roaches that scurried out from beneath the ice machine and were found in two of the three rooms we rented. Nice enough folks work, here, but didn't seem terribly concerned about the roaches... More

This hotel was tucked away in Orange County not far from the airport or the University we were visiting. The hotel was very clean and the staff was friendly. They just replaced all the mattresses the day we arrived so that was an added plus too. Make sure you get the cookies during your stay. Check with the front desk... More

Just a minor hiccup at check in...tried for an early check in and they said they would call me when the room was available but never got a call! Other than that, it was a GREAT STAY. Spacious rooms, French influences, tasty breakfast buffet, super comfortable beds, great housekeeping staff and good cookies in the evening. I managed to lock... More

This was my second stay at the Ayres. The rooms are nice, maybe slightly larger than average, but nothing remarkable. In fact, I was a bit bummed that housekeeping came to clean but simply remade bed and stocked towels... they failed to even take away dirty glasses or replace coffee cups. On the other hand, the front desk staff was... More

Best service. Nice facility and furnishings. Convenient location near John Wayne airport. Reliable and regular shuttle service. Nice breakfast buffet (not a huge selection but very good food quality). Lots of restaurants close-by: mexican, sushi, fast food, Equadorian and more. Convenience store 1-minute walk. I travel for a living. This is my favorite domestic hotel for business travel. Not fancy.... More

We love staying at the Ayres Suites in Manhattan Beach etc but this hotel, while beautiful in the lobby, was subpar in the room. We were visiting Vanguard University. We paid for a jr. suite. It was not a suite. Also, the hotel has two properties. The one with front desk had typical hotel surrounding a beautiful garden with seating.... More
