very clean and updated rooms. the free breakfast was exceptional. Jimmy Dean breakfast sandwiches! The lady running it was also exceptional. First checked with us when we were in the lobby to make sure we had eaten before she cleared it at 10:00am. Very efficient. Also walkable to local restaurant.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Ayres Lodge Alpine. The staff were all extremely nice. The room was nicely decorated, clean, and quiet. The main lobby is cute and the coffee and continental breakfast (free) were delicious. My family enjoyed the heated pool and jacuzzi. I highly recommend this to reasonably priced hotel.

We had one problem, the shower was so hard to work that we couldn't use it. We reported problem to front desk and they said they would have it fixed for the next quest. How much more do you want us to say and you want 200 characters.

“It would be swell if these rooms had at least a mini refrigerator. I have medicine that needs to be refrigerated and had to just leave it in my bag. The other Ayres I stayed provided a cooked to order breakfast and a mini refrigerator/microwave in the room! Thought this was the same. ”
