Hotel close to Village

Posted Feb 24, 2017
The room was larger than we expected. Very clean, beds were comfortable. Lots of closet space. It had a good view and the living room type area was great to sit and decide where to go or just sit and look out the windows. The check in was great, the receptionist was very friendly and let us check in early. There are restaurants close by and it is a nice walk to the village where everything is. Heister Park is a block toward the coast and is a wonderful park with coastal views. There is a path to walk to the village which keeps you away from the streets. Can be a little noisy, thin walls. ( they had a pair of ear plugs in the room. Which we didn't use) Over all this was a great Hotel and I do recommend it.

Nice hotel and good location.

Posted Nov 29, 2016
Pros: Location, cleanliness, good parking
Cons: There is no air conditioning so you need to leave windows open if it's hot.
This hotel was perfect for us. We spent 6 nights there over Thanksgiving, visiting our son who only lives a block away. The staff was very nice, the room was comfortable and clean. A little chilly to use the heated swimming pool but we would certainly have used it in warmer weather. The location is great - one block to the park and beach and about 3 blocks to downtown. The hotel is older but kept in nice condition. Convenient parking right on site. We will definitely stay here again!

Thanks so much for staying with us and taking the time to write a review Priscilla. We're so happy you enjoyed you stay with us while visiting your son. The room you stayed in does have a window air conditioning/heating unit although it might've been difficult to notice next to the bed, underneath the window. We look forward to your next visit with us and wish you happy holidays! :)

Funky cool hotel in the heart of Laguna.

Posted Nov 14, 2016
Pros: The bed was fantastic. I was given an upgrade and had a small kitchen which I didn't need, but was thankful for the courtesy.
Cons: Shower was small, but didn't bother me. Everything else was great
Location: Best location in Laguna. North of main beach a few blocks so a little more quiet. You can hear the waves and walk to everything. I will be back.

Great Stay

Great location, walking distance to the beach and shops. The hotel is quiet with beach style decor. The staff were very friendly and helpful with any questions I had, I'd definitely stay here again.

Nice, cozy, friendly place to stay

Posted Nov 12, 2016 on Hotels
The first night we stayed, we got put right next to Highway 101, and the noise was unnerving. Not too big of a deal, as we didn't plan to stay another night, due to travel plans. A few days later we returned, and management already had a note in their computer about our noise complaint and apologized personally and placed us in a much-quieter room with partial ocean views. Thanks to management for being sensitive to customers. That's so rare, and the personalized touch was greatly appreciated. We will return to stay here.

Great beach location

Posted Oct 31, 2016
Pros: Location was great; easy access to everything important at a reasonable price
Cons: Some rooms only have a view of the lane out back; an old time beach motel so may not be for everyone
Location: Restaurants, beach and town were all walkable

Excellent value for the price

Posted Oct 22, 2016
Location: It's not walking distance from the main areas but very close, you have to pay to park anywhere you go but it's $4-6 for 3hrs.
There are little things that I could complain about but the bottom line is it's a really good price and it was very clean! They loan you beach chairs and towels and beach toys if you need them. The things I didn't like are going to be a problem everywhere so not worth mentioning.
