Reviewed yesterday NEW

The staff was great and very friendly and helpful. The grounds are very clean and the pool and patio area looked beautiful. The rooms were from 1988. Very outdated and needed to be remodeled. Just older comforters and lamps. Needed more outlets by the best and desk area. Location was good and the van driver very helpful.

I have chosen Ayres for my stay in Orange County for the past three years and I haven't been too disappointed. The one in Costa Mesa is very close to the airport (which the hotel provides a shuttle service to/from) and is within walking distance of places to eat. The staff is courteous and is always ready to work with...

I have stayed at this hotel a few times over the past four years. The rooms were nice and I enjoyed the breakfast buffet that was included in the price. However, I just returned from my stay there and after sitting down to the buffet and having one small scoop of fruit and yogurt, I was hit up by the...

My daughter and I stayed one night and were quite pleased. The hotel staff were very friendly, and the room was clean and comfortable. Cookies in the lobby at night were a nice touch. Our only complaint in the room was that the air conditioner was a little loud and the hairdryer a little weak. The wifi worked fine. We...

Location was fine and hotel clean. It lacked many amenities a 4 star hotel would have and Ayres is overly ambitious with its star rating. The Duke Hotel is a 4 star hotel and if you compare the Ayres, the Duke gets an A, the Ayres gets a C. Nothing wrong with the staff or hotel, I felt scammed in...

First time here and I will be back. As the title states overall pretty good. The check in process was painless, there are times they get backed up as airline crews must use the Ayres Hotel to stay when they have lay overs. The room and bathroom was clean and everything was in good working order. I had the breakfast...

The hotel is located very close to the airport and near shopping. The service and quality of the hotel were excellent. Complimentary use of the computer was very convenient. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

I happened to be here for meeting and found the place just ok. It's close to the airport, which is nice, but I am sure there are better hotels. I am a Hilton Diamond member and stayed here because of the meetings. if I would do it all over again I would chose another place. It's not a bad place,...

Our room was great, the staff is so friendly, and we took the hotel shuttle to Metro Pointe for a fun afternoon of shopping. We also walked to the nearby park and enjoyed the sun as we watched the tide recede. We will be back!

I visit Costa Mesa often and visit different hotels looking for just the right one! I decided to try the Ayres after all the TA accolades. I booked a Junior Suite. The day prior to check in I called and asked for an early check in for around 12:30 PM and was told that if I wanted to check in...
