Great rooms and the staff was very nice. The restaurants where the hotel was located were all A+. The cigar store and country store was also excellent. Other great restaurants were in a close proximity

I've stayed at Ayres in Alpine 2-3 times each year for years (usually for respite from family caregiving responsibilities.) I keep going back because it has the country feel without traveling all the way to the mountains, the staff are friendly, helpful, and efficient, the rooms are clean, orderly, well-stocked and comfortable and the location is quiet and calm. I...

I stayed at the Lodge for my brother's wedding for two nights. The room was very clean, spacious, and comfortable. I had a suite with a King bed, so there was a mini fridge, microwave, and Keurig-style coffee maker. The furnishings were nice and check in and out was a breeze. I would definitely stay there again. It's at the...

The ayres lodge is a two story type motel with very nicely decorated rooms in soft earth tones which give it a very homy feeling. Rooms are newly remodeled and feature comfortable beds and above standard furniture. Everything was very clean and rooms feature keurig coffee makers, refrigerator and micro waves. The only downside was a very noisy bathroom fan....

This unprepossessing hotel is located in Alpine, a small town about 30 miles east of San Diego. It is tucked in a little strip mall off Rt. 8. The rooms are larger than most two-to-three star hotels, nicely decorated and CLEAN. The staff is welcoming and competent, and I mean everyone from room cleaners to front desk staff. They all...

We had a very nice stay in this hotel! It was very clean, updated, comfortable and had very nice staff at the desk. What more could we need? The lobby was "lodge" style decor with lots of chairs and fireplace. This doubled as the breakfast area (which was only a continental style at this point) which worked out fine. We...

The rooms were clean and we felt safe staying there with our young kids but be aware that the photos are a bit misleading. The pictures online made it appear that the hotel was in the middle of a beautiful, rustic part of town. It is actually between a strip mall, Carl's Jr., and the I-8 freeway. The free breakfast...
