Unmatched view,

Posted Mar 16, 2015
Pros: The view
Cons: The rooms need a make-over and air conditioning.
Every room has a beautiful view of the Pacific. The rooms, however, are in serious need of a refresh. Also, there is no air conditioning. On a hot evening, the rooms are unbearable. Food service is limited to one restaurant and two lounges. The Splashes bar was small and overcrowded while the 15FiftyFive Lounge is opens to the driveway entrance/parking area. Not exactly a relaxing spot for a cocktail.

Beautiful hotel on beach, great location

Posted Mar 9, 2015
Pros: Location, gorgeous amenities, customer service
Cons: The room itself wasn't as clean would be expected for this type of hotel. Just little things like dirty doors and walls, carpet
Location: Great coffee at Laguna Coffee, Adorable boutique "Twig", ocean swimming and tidepools
Beautiful room, gorgeous view of ocean. Great staff (although the concierge wasn't too knowledgeable about running trails, tidepools, etc. - she was very nice, though). I am a clean freak, so I did notice that certain parts of our room could use a little cleaning (bathroom door, carpet). All that being said, I would totally stay here with my daughters again, no doubt!

Stunning views. Room perfect other than see below

Posted Mar 5, 2015
Pros: Very well organized. Position and views. Room and beds were fabulous.
Cons: Tea and Coffee making facilities in the room. Value for money?
Location: Near the end of Laguna Beach town. Places to eat near by if you do not want to eat in the hotel. Lots of art shops to look around.
Very disappointed that there was not tea and coffee making facilities in the room. The hotel did try to compensate for this by offering free tea & coffee from 6.00am to 10.00am daily. Value for money questionable; including resort fee and valet parking - you seem to be paying for the view more than anything, which I must admit was stunning.

Great location close two everything in Laguna

Posted Mar 3, 2015
Pros: Location, location, location.
This was a last minute weekend getaway to celebrate a special occasion. The location was ideal, close to restaurant's, bars and right on the beach. The staff was outstanding, attending to our every need. Though not a newer hotel, it was well maintained and inviting.

Good value, Very nice view.

Posted Feb 17, 2015
Pros: Staff go above and beyond, always a smile on their face
Cons: small updates like room decor
Location: What do you fee like? Great food around, bars, just relax or rent an exotic car or jet ski to tool around in while wearing your hotel robe?
Small updates are needed here and there, but you wont pay much mind to that when you sit on your ocean view balcony enjoying a nice glass of wine.

Beautiful sights and sounds.

I came with my husband for our honeymoon. It was a wonderful experience! The ocean was incredibly close and the room was both comfortable and beautiful. We can't wait to go back!

Laguna Beach Hotel

Posted Jan 3, 2015
Pros: Close in to the Beach Cities and rooms were clean and comfortable.
We had a good experience and would recommend to anyone looking to stay in Laguna Beach. Staff is good and considering that it was New Years Eve, was very accommodating.
