We have just arrived in the US - and made it to the Hotel its 11pm US time, so we have been up a few hours (26), we have our Hire Car - a Mazda 6, we have checked in and all is good in the world. Bit too tired to write much, but will report back after tomorrow, we are off to Griffith Park - so hopefully have a few good pictures to share. All the best Les & Caroline
I am ahead of schedule on my touring trip so it was nice of Tito and Cathy Escarrega to put up with me for a few days. I will be heading out on Monday the 24th to continue my trip to the border and then back for Kelly and David's wedding in Newport ...
I marveled like a child at the fun-o-rama known as the Santa Monica pier. I was hoping to convince Rufio to buy coaster tickets, but we had a tentative plan to see a comedy show that evening and needed to make our way back. Reluctantly I made my way around the pier and we started back on our walk, although not before stopping to play on the gymnastics equipment at Muscle Beach.
Unfortunately the notorious LA traffic that was light on ...
... and to Amity Island where we were attacked by a shark. We went to new york and Washington and to Mexico - complete with a flash flood and even to Europe. We saw the Bates motel and house and a scene from war of the worlds where a airliner had crashed into a street. Then it was into Wisteria lane. Then Donna took us on the Jurassic Park ride (the poncho was definitely needed), followed by the Mummy ride and then the new Transformers ride ...
... in Temescal Park and Runyon Canyon
- Santa Monica Pier
- Dumplings in Koreatown and French Dips in Chinatown
- Road trip to Mammoth: Mono Lake, June Lake Loop, Bodie Ghost Town and some spring skiing

Historical Traveler Reviews Ayres Hotel at Hawthorne / Manhattan Beach / LAX
We stayed here the night before heading to Europe, It was a last minute booking and we were not disapointed.
I reserved a room as a surprise for my boyfriend for his birthday, but I was surprised as well! This hotel is absolutely beautiful! As you enter the lobby, you encounter marble floors, a winding staircase and a fireplace. The rooms are even better. Marble floors and counter tops, luxurious rugs and furniture and a king size bed that is the most comfortable I have slept in at a hotel. It reminded me of the strip hotels in Las Vegas, only local. I will definately stay here again. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a different experience from the usual hotel stay. You will not be disappointed!
Hotel is Wonderful
This hotel is excellent. It is a beautiful property. The service my husband and I encountered was excellent. I can't say enough about this hotel. we stayed here for our 1st anniversary. It was about a 30 minute drive to LA, but it was well worth it. The property is spotless, very luxurious.
Yes, it is near the 405 and a busy street, however you can't hear either from the inside. The courtyard feels like your in the country. I would definetly stay here again. Also the reviewer who said you park under the property must have stayed somewhere else. The parking lot surrounds the hotel.
Don't pass this hotel up, you won't be disappointed.
Cannot say enough good things about this hotel
Everything in this hotel is brand new and spotless. Wonderful service, gorgeous rooms, courtyard, etc.
A sleeper! What a property
Stayed at the Ayers Hotel Hawthorne and was bowled over with the hotel, surrounding areas.
When I drove up to the lot, it did not jump out at me. However, as I entered the lobby, the art work, appointments, and staff were excellent!
Rooms are new, with tasteful touches, energy efficient (room key card is inserted into a separate unit that turns on the power), and importantly, quiet.
The attached restaurant is excellent and there are dozens of restaurants nearby. Beach is less than three miles away.
This property does not advertise too much, but it is worth a stay!
Greatest night of sleep
Our local church, Jubilee Fellowship in nearby Torrance held our annual Married Couples Retreat and we are already planning on Ayres for our next years retreat. What wonderful service, food, decor and staff. Great restaurant. Talk about comfortable beds! Really great sleep. The conference rooms were set up perfectly and the staff was wonderful in checking our needs in an unabtrusive manner. Can 6 stars be awarded???
What a beautiful surprise!
My friend and I stayed at the Ayres Hotel one night last month on our way to a flight out of LAX to Hawaii. This is an absolutely beautiful hotel! The rooms were great and the beds were a dream to sleep in--it was hard to get up for our flight. I loved the fact that a great breakfast was included.
My family and I stayed here Sept 1st, 2004 for 3 nights. Everything about this hotel is 5 star in my opinion. The rooms are beautiful and very clean. The staff at the front desk to the wait staff in the Matisse restaurant at breakfast was exceptional. The hot breakfast was very good. They also provided cereal, bagels, muffins and several different types of fruit. We have already made plans to go back in June 05'. I would rate it a 5 star for the price and amenities!
On a long drive home I decided to pull over and stay here out of the blue. From the outside this Hotel resembles an embassy Suites or a Ramada. It sits opposite a new shopping complex that is very ugly and the freeway. I wasn't hoping to find anything else but an afforable bed and shower. Once you walk into the Hotel and see the rooms you will be very suprised. I never thought I would say I had a pleasant evening in Hawthorne? This was a great Hotel with incredible service. I had friendly staff offering me help every ten feet I walked in the place. Sure you are in Hawthorne but the service and charm of this Hotel is incredible. I am amazed at how they can charge so little and offer such amenities. After I checked out of this place I hit a website to sign up for deals on the hotel website. I will recommend this place to all my friends who want a quiet affordable getaway. What a nice evening I had at this wonderful Hotel. This isn't crowded and over priced so hit this Hotel before it gets discovered. Great Hotel!
Book a room now!!!
My husband and 4 yr old son and I stayed here from 6/12 - 6/19 while he attended a local conference. This is a brand new, beautiful European style hotel with an EXCELLENT breakfast! The rooms are large and very nicely decorated - immaculately clean. The staff is extremely helpful and very friendly. There is a small pool and hot tub and parking is free. The beds are the most comfortable I've ever slept in - we didn't want to leave! Good rates because the hotel is new - it's a gem.
