I had to jump on here and post this while I'm still riding the wave of contentment after my stay at the Ayres Laguna Woods. What a splendid hotel, especially for the price. We were there for a short in/out weekend for a nearby wedding. Check-in was easy and they were able to accommodate our request for a poolside room.... More

These days many hotels are indistinguishable from each other. This one stands out because of its unique style - it is in the best European style (except breakfast, unfortunately, which is fully American). I agree with other reviewers on facilities and service - they are very good. Internet is free, fast and reliable. The location is also very convenient -... More

I stayed 1 week here for business and staying here makes you feel at home. The staff is very friendly, rooms are clean and spacious, good complimentary breakfast is included, it has a nice small gym and is conveniently located in a 15 minute ride you are in laguna Beach. Next time I will def. stay there again

I love the Ayres. I always stay there when visiting my family in the area and could not ask for a better experience. The rooms are lovely and the breakfasts are exquisite! We had a small issue with our room this time being somewhat musty. Hopefully this will not happen again.

We really liked the whole feel of the hotel because it was well-furnished and well-landscaped. The breakfast there was also great. However, the only thing that really bothered us was that before we went to bed, we put out our "Do Not Disturb" sign on our door so that we could sleep in. Promptly at 7 am the next morning,...
