We recently spent a relaxing weekend at the Ayres Lodge in Alpine. Our room was a deluxe double, the beds were very comfortable, and it was nice to have the fridge and microwave. Setting is quiet and peaceful. Breakfast is not a true 'breakfast', more a mini-continental. Will definitely stay again.

Everything about this place is nice from staff to Lodgings. Breakfast needs a little attention. No complaints. Complementary Cookies are freshly baked and are out of this World. Staff is wonderfully pleasant and helpful. Excellent location in the mountains.

The rooms were very clean and the people were very nice. We stayed a week there, and the restaurants you can walk to had better food than in town. They did offer breakfast, juice and free coffee. They were only 4miles from the Casino and did offer shuttle to Casino.

The lodge is placed at a very nice location and has lot of eating places nearby. The rooms were a little older, but comfortable. The staff though was very curt and rude. The reception person doubled up as the person putting the breakfast out as well and was getting irritated with small questions (asked respectfully). The breakfast room is a...

Great job Ayres Alpine manager and desk attendants. You were the most obliging and helpful I have ever experienced! Marvelous workers. The Ruffer Family Reunion thanks you! We planned our reunion occupancy site many months ahead of time, with your manager's assistance. It all worked as planned, thanks to your several managers and desk attendants. Thanks.

This hotel was very clean and staff was pleasant. It was located right off the highway, near a fast food restaurant and gas station, but surprisingly there was no highway noise. It was a bit far from San Diego, being about 35-40 minutes from the city, so I would recommend staying there if it's on your way into or out...

Overpriced for average accomodations. Breakfast except for the fresh fruit was all packages of unhealthy foods heavy on salt and sugar. Recommend only for location. Staff was friendly. Room comfortable but small for the $.
