Great get away location with outstanding oceanfront rooms. Relaxing on the balcony with the surf lapping on the beach makes for a great start and ending to every day. Nice place. Will stay there again soon!

We selected this hotel because it was on the beach side of the Pacific Coast Highway. We didn't want to pay what seemed like a steep price for an ocean view, so we booked a room without the view. However, when we arrived, they upgraded us to an ocean view room, which was just lovely. We enjoyed it immensely. But...

I spent the weekend here with my boyfriend for my birthday and I couldn't have been more ecstatic about my stay. We had a beautiful suite with an ocean front view and there's absolutely nothing better than waking up to such an incredible sight. I've worked for years in the hotel industry myself and I'm typically very critical of hotels...

Started out with a TravelZoo deal for a non-view queen room, decided to upgrade to the Beachfront King room - and glad I did. We were put into the "Reef" building which is four levels. Our room was on the lowest level. Walked into the room, clean, nicely furnished then out onto the balcony...when they say Beachfront! You're standing 10...

We're glad you got that Beachfront room, too, Cheryl! It really is lovely to watch the waves, and to hear them crashing at night. Sorry it was a bit too loud, though -- we never know how rough the waters will be! That aside, we're thrilled that you enjoyed yourself, and we hope to have another chance to welcome you...

This time I stayed in an oceanfront room across from the first room I had. This room isn't decorated as nice and bed is kinda hard. But great deal for the price. Staff is very helpful. Rooms are very clean. Of course you have the oceanfront million dollar view. Down the street the Surf and Sand runs 500 to 700...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Imagine the cool ocean breeze brushing up against your cheek. Admire the views of the deep, blue, Pacific Ocean from the balconies overlooking the waves of one of our oceanfront rooms. Enjoy convenient sunning, surfing and swimming as the sand is just steps from your room. Pacific Edge Hotel is not only steps away from the sand of the California coast, but also steps away from everything that Laguna Beach has to offer. The hotel is within walking distance of both Laguna Village and the shops and galleries along the South Coast Highway. In addition to your holiday and vacation needs, we are known for being an ideal destination for groups, social events, and wedding. Our magnificent Villa offers a prime, one-of-kind event space, suitable for the most important and precious events. We look forward to you joining us for your next leisure or business stay. ... more   less
