Location: Ayres Hotel Orange is about two miles from Disneyland. Most guests will take the ART shuttle that picks up at the hotel approximately every 30 minutes. However, a fair share of guests also will drive themselves or will Uber or Lyft over to the parks. So while this isn't one of the closest hotels near Disneyland, it has its perks!

The Ayres Hotel Orange is also located just about a half mile from The Outlets at Orange. This is a giant outdoor shopping, dining and entertainment district. You'll find everything from casual to sit-down dining. Buffalo Wild Wings, Saddle Ranch Chop House, Rubio's Coastal Grill, Jamba Juice and many more popular restaurants can be found here.

You'll also find a number of high-end outlets like Nordstrom Rack, Saks OFF 5th, Bloomingdale's Outlet and a Neiman Marcus LastCall. If you're looking for something more casual, you'll find a Forever 21, PUMA, Hurley, Gap Outlet and so much more. There's also an AMC movie theater, Dave & Buster's and a Lucky Strike bowling alley. It's a destination in and of itself.

Additionally, the Ayres Hotel Orange is right off of the I-5 Freeway. This makes getting to any nearby attractions a breeze. You're about 15 minutes to Knott's Berry Farm, or about 20 minutes to the beach. You're also in a convenient location to head south to LEGOLAND, SeaWorld or any other San Diego area attraction.

Ayres Hotel Orange Rooms

The rooms at the Ayres Hotel Orange could be taken straight from a spa resort. They were inspired by Bali and feel like a sanctuary. If you're looking for a peaceful night after a fun-filled day at Disneyland, this may be the hotel for you.

The rooms at the Ayres Hotel Orange come with either two queen beds or a king bed and a sofa bed. The highlight has to be the signature Ayres Celestial Sleeper beds. Our team has never had a more restful night of sleep

In addition to comfortable bedding, the rooms feature a large workspace, a flat screen TV, an iHome station and more. There's also a microwave, mini fridge and seating area in each room. The bathrooms were totally modern, clean and spacious. It's safe to say that the guest rooms at the Ayres Hotel Orange are not what you would typically expect to find near Disneyland..

Ayres Hotel Orange Dining

One of our favorite amenities at the Ayres Hotel Orange is their complimentary breakfast. There is a wide variety of both hot and cold breakfast buffet items available. We should also mention that the breakfast room itself is quite lovely. There is a long, dark wood family style table for larger groups with smaller seating areas around. There's also patio seating available if you'd like to enjoy the Southern California weather.

Although the Ayres Hotel Orange doesn't have an on-site restaurant, the ALO by Ayres Hotel is right next door and features one of the most popular Mexican restaurants in Orange County, Anepalco. There's also a Wendy's and Starbucks that are right in front of the hotel as well.

We Recommend…

Our most popular package for Disneyland Resort vacations comes with your hotel stay and 3 day park hopper tickets. That way you can explore both theme parks and have extra time to see and do all those extra favorites like shows, entertainment and popular rides.

You can see why the Ayres Hotel Orange is a fantastic family hotel destination near Disneyland that often sells out quickly. If you'd like to book your stay for this property, be sure to check out our Disneyland packages online, or call our vacation specialists at 855-GET-AWAY.
