4 of us stayed here on for one night on our 2 week California roadtrip, which also happened to fall on my birthday. First impression is that it's a little rundown but completely fine for what we paid and for 1 night stay. Rooms are clean, pretty basic but not horrible at all. Location is superb. Right on the beautiful...

So glad you got to watch the dolphins! What a wonderful memory. That aside, I wish you had been more impressed with our amenities, but it sounds like you enjoyed your stay, and that's always good to hear. We'll keep your feedback in mind for our future guests, and we hope to have another chance to wow you soon. Best,...

It was a wonderful overnight stay at the Pacific Edge. We got there a little early but no hassle with check in. Our room was spacious with a little mini kitchen, refrigerator, sink, dishes, etc. It is an older property but in great repair with some funky touches such as a little animal on the bed who lives there and...

From the moment we checked in, the service was top notch. Javid helped us sort out some room confusion (we booked two double beds, they gave us a king...they ended up giving us an even better room, so thank you for that!) This hotel is so beautiful. Very clean, modern, classy, and elegant. I can't wait to come back. Best...

I am on the fence with the Pacific Edge Hotel as to whether or not I would recommend it. The view is killer and the location is perfect. Another reviewer mentioned the day bungalows and the noise from them. We booked a family room so our king bed was above the bungalows and the kids room faced in so it...

Thanks for that feedback, Heidi. It seems that most of your issues stemmed from our decor and layout. We'll certainly keep this in mind moving forward, but please don't hesitate to let us know if the door is ever a concern. Most rooms have the sliding door leading to the balcony, but we can get you a rod to make...

Just returned from our annual stay in Laguna Beach. This was our 6th consecutive stay at Pacific Edge and we keep going back for the unbeatable location. We were disappointed that the beachfront junior suites were no longer available. To avoid settling for a smaller room, we stayed in an apartment this year. Great space, could use some updating, but,...

We booked a ocean front room to celebrate our anniversary. What the hotel does not tell you is that directly below these rooms they rent out the deck for parties. We were here for the equivalent of "Jersey Shore reuionon party." Complete with beer pong, screaming and yelling, etc... If you want to be able to enjoy a ocean front...

We stayed in an ocean-front room, and the location was incredible - right on the beach above the high tide line. The balcony was comfortable and private. The room was comfortable and pleasantly, if a little sparsely, furnished. The lobby staff were helpful and friendly. We had a room-service breakfast, and that was great, but a bit pricey. Having a...

My husband and I spent Christmas Eve here. Initially tried to book through Groupon, but the deal wouldn't process so I called for a same day reservation and the hotel honored the Groupon rate. We were right on the water and just the sound of the waves crashing at night was reason enough to stay here. Sure the hotel isn't...

I have always stayed at the Inn at Laguna Beach, but it was booked, so we took a chance on Pacific Edge. I was not disappointed. Excellent views from the room, which was recently renovated. It is my understanding that the other rooms are a bit dated, but apparently the King Oceanfront rooms have all been renovated. Will definitely stay...

Reviewed 26 January 2015

We have spent time in many hotels in Laguna Beach. Pacific Edge is the best. The oceanside rooms are actually above the sand. An advantage is that being higher up makes the room private, no prying eyes here. We felt totally safe leaving the balcony doors open so we could hear the surf all night long. There are two restaurants...

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
