Every time we go down to Chapman University to visit my daughter we stay at the lovely Ayres Inn in Orange. I like all the antique decor which was recently upgraded in the past few years. The Cafe serves a full breakfast 7 days a week and it is included in the overnight charge. The pool, nice and warm and the hot tub is divine. Even though this hotel is in the middle of a very busy traffic area, the rooms are quiet, the pool area is surrounded by vines and fencing so you don't notice the cars, and the price is right! Rooms go for about $99.00 a night for a king room or two queens but if you have a student at Chapman you pay only $79.00!
PROS: It is right around the corner from Disneyland!
