Reviewed 22 June 2016

This is our go to lodging in East San Diego County. The grounds are well maintained and the room was excellent. Being close to the freeway is convenient, but we didn't hear any traffic noise. The breakfast is adequate and the chocolate chip cookies each night are a nice treat.

When we first arrived it was fairly early in the morning around 7:00 am. When we went to check in the man working the front desk was very rude with me, raising his voice telling me "check in time isn't until 3:00 pm" and once what I assume his supervisor came to assist us he mentioned that "maybe there would...

It was nice, nearby a shopping center and near the fwy. Very convenient. Just was a little disappointed with the size of the room. I thought it would be just a little bigger. It was kind of tight in there for 4 persons.

I enjoyed the style and the environment. Everything was clean and the location is peaceful and quite. The kids especially enjoyed the warm swimming pool while I and my wife got carried away with the heated jacuzzi.

I always ask for an upper room and I can usually get one in the back. The rooms are always clean and comfortable. I have stayed at the Ayres Lodge many times and have never been disappointed. Even though there was a party going on outside, they were considerate and I heard nothing. Just an excellent stay.

We considered camping but at the last minute I checked hotwire and found this gem. We didn't mind the drive down into the city at all and had a very comfortable stay. The check in clerk was very friendly and professional. The beds were comfortable, the room was updated and the property was well kept. We were on the garden...
