I'm sorry we only got to stay 1 night. Nice hotel, different from your usual. Clean and comfortable, the bed could have been better but okay.. nicely decorated. Big room, could have had a couple easy chairs, only had a desk chair. Close to the free shuttle, which we needed to get to the Pageant of the Masters.

Thank you for staying with - we enjoyed your visit. Our small establishment doesn't offer any breakfast at all because we have no place to serve it. So as a good gesture to our guests, we offer small pastries, orange juice and water (in the lobby) to kick start their day until they have a chance for a more solid...

Stayed here one night over Memorial Day weekend. Was mostly pleased with the hotel until the following morning I lifted the comforter off of the bed and found a circle of thick red "goo" in the lower corner of the bed. I slept on the right side of the bed and never even ventured over to the left side and...

We apologize if you had an uncomfortable experience - but I must say this one is a tough one to accept! First of all, blood does not come out of a sheet with a wet towel - second, "goo" is not blood. Third, we're dismayed that you slept on a sheet with "goo" on it, and never reported it to...

I just got back from a two night stay. I had to come to town for personal business on my own dime with some buddies. It is in a good location, yes within walking distance to the main downtown area. It is maybe a mile or so. The room is fairly basic but clean. Parking is great and free, unlike...

The room was dark, dingy, and wreaked of cigarette smoke. Even worse was the deodorizer they used to try and mask the odor. I went back to the desk and asked for another room. The manager (owner?) said there wasn't another room available. Her exact words were, "we're booked and we just can't "build another room for you." I told...

First of all - we apologize for the inconvenience anyone experiences here. We do have a "No Smoking" policy, unfortunately we can't watch what our guests do behind closed doors. We do our best to resolve all issues the best we can; however there are times when a guest chooses to leave. We would have continued working with this guest,...

My husband and I were traveling through Laguna Beach and decided to stay over. We found the Art Hotel, I had heard it was a very nice place to stay for the price in a good location. Our room was quite a surprise!!! The furnishings, bedding, linens and touches were 5 star quality. The outside deck area was being repainted,...

Room was clean but dated...and only slightly resembled the pics on the hotel's web site in terms of decor. Extra blanket found in the closet had holes in it. Peeling paint around the entrance door, cheap brown carpet and a general look of age throughout the room. Parking underground was easy and convenient. Light sleepers beware: the bar fridge in...

Thank you for your stay at the hotel. Unfortunately traffic can be very noisy; it being the busiest hwy in the city. We are a small family owned hotel, and sometimes things do go unnoticed - however, we'll address any issue as soon as possible, if told by our guests. We hope you enjoyed Laguna Beach.

We stayed here for two nights in February and really appreciated this hotel. This is an older hotel that the current owners are still working on upgrading. The room is large enough and comfortable. It has a refrigerator and coffee maker, both useful. They offer a small breakfast (fresh fruit and some fresh pastries). There is a small pool. Usefully,...
