“Great Hotel Great Staff”

We just wrapped up a GREAT 10 day stay at the Ayres Hotel and Suites
I cant remember a 10 day hotel stay that I didn't find at least have one or two things to complain about!! Well not at the Ayres property.
The place is in a good location to get around, the rooms are clean and spacious, the staff is awesome from front desk to food and maid service!!!

I would highly recommend this hotel for any type of stay.

PS the flight pattern for SNA goes over the hotel but starts around 7AM and ends at around 9PM so there are some times when the pool or courtyard areas get noisy!! Still great!

Room Tip: All rooms looked equally good. There are a few that overlook the courtyard and pool that would be...

Ubearable noise from airplanes taking off from The airport right next to This hotel starting every morning at 07.00 am and not ending until 11 pm.

Hotel rooms older in mexican Style with a Nice courtyard in The middle.

No double glazed Windows to reduce the aircraft noise

Thank you kindly for your feedback about your recent stay at our hotel. We’re truly sorry that your sleep was disrupted due to the noise of the airplanes and thank you for your understanding. In the future, we would like to encourage you to please request a room located farthest away from the direction of the airport in order to ensure a quieter stay. We always try our very best to accommodate our guests special requests. Thank you again for your candid feedback and we only hope you will reconsider staying with us again in the future.

Sincerely,

We stayed here after flying into Orange County and had easy access to all the attractions in the area. Interesting décor with nautical theme and even some Ayres family history, overall very nice feel. Microwaves are available for every floor, which helped with some meal prep, and an above average hot breakfast was included with our room. Combined with a helpful staff, we were very happy with our stay and would return. Only con is access can be difficult depending on which direction you are arriving on Bristol St., try to arrive from the SW or NW.

Very classy for the price. Very clean and up to date. The airport is 3 minutes away. The breakfast was prepared every morning and it wasnt just rolls and donuts. Eggs, bacon and pancakes or french toast and diced potatoes. This was included in the room cost. I have paid alot more for alot less. I would definatly recommend this hotel.

Stayed here with my wife in June 2014. I've visited SoCal for over 20 yrs and never knew this place existed. I stayed away from fear that is was near the airport and also it was in an industrial area right off the 73. Stayed because my usual spots were booked or had jacked up the prices in-season. I feared my wife wouldn't like it because it wasn't a name brand. She landed before me and checked in first (I had a business appt). She called me and I asked her how she liked it. I was prepared to move after the first night. But, she said she loved it. Very quaint and European in feel. She told me she was sitting in the courtyard by the water statue drinking a glass of wine.

That alone is an endorsement. My wife is a name-brand snob and is not a fan of exterior entrance hotels due to security. We both felt very safe. She said she would definitely like to stay here again when we come back in the fall.

The rooms are Embassy suite type rooms (2 rooms). Windows open for fresh air. Fridge, coffee maker and nice bathroom (Although, the door opening outward is weird). Rooms were quiet and only heard one airplane in the 4 nights we were there. The breakfast buffet serves it's purpose. Sit in the courtyard for full enjoyment. Service was good, no issues. You do have to walk if your room is in the back, but you're walking through the courtyard and the outdoor pool/spa area, so not like you're walking through meeting areas (uhummm, DoubleTree) to get to your room. The location can be accessed a variety of different different ways to beat traffic and provides easy access to highways and Newport/Balboa Island/Fashion Island.

I will have to say, that this will probably replace the Fairmont as my go to stay near the airport hotel. Two words, free parking.

Room Tip: Get a room overlooking the courtyard. The pool area has potential to get loud if you're on the f...

My mother in law and I stayed for one night. She and I really appreciated the location; its near the freeway entrance and also near shops! We also liked the pool and spa. The room was very clean and nice. The only issue we had was our room was located directly above the laundry room and we heard the machines running all night long.

Overall, hotel is great!

We were very happy with our stay. The hotel is decorated beautifully and the guest rooms and common areas are spotless. The staff are very friendly and went out of their way to help us when we asked for area recommendations. We will definitely stay here again when we visit Southern California.
