Conveniently located across the street from the UC Irvine Medical Center, The Outlets at Orange, and a short distance from the Disneyland Resort, ALO Hotel is a hot-spot for both leisure and business travelers. Guests enjoy spotless guestrooms, and complimentary amenities include parking, high-speed Wi-Fi, and a daily full breakfast buffet.
The actual room was fine, just as you would expect from any non-budget hotel. On the online booking site it was described as a "boutique hotel" in an excellent location. There was nothing special about the place. I have no idea why it was described as "boutique." I booked there based on the description to give my daughter a different experience than the other hotels on our vacation, but it was very similar to the Doubletree we stayed at in Flagstaff on our drive out. I don't know what I expected, but I was certainly not impressed.
The price was about double what it should have been for a similar room at a name brand hotel chain. I would NOT book a room there again. Website reviews also stated hotel was 0.7 miles from Angels Stadium. According to my car odometer and Google Map App it was closer to 1.1-1.2 miles, too far for my daughter to walk in summer heat. If you have to drive to get where you are going anyway, location is NOT an advantage as advertised.
Clean and quiet.
Breakfast selection was limited and quality was not very good. Having stayed at other Ayres properties, I expected better. The free hot breakfast was a main reason for booking here.
The staff was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. They helped us save money by booking a town car to the airport. The free breakfast was great. I liked that check out wasn't until 12pm. The hotel was located a short bus trip from Disneyland. For $5 we could by an all day bus pass. The bus drivers were always friendly and on time in most instances.
great value, friendly and helpful staff, comfortable clean rooms with great beds/bedding
breakfast. Good value.
The location in proximity to Angels stadium was fantastic. Nice decor, clean and quiet rooms, good breakfast.
