This is an older, but remodeled motel. It has three separate units (each with about 10 rooms) with the rooms on the second floor and parking underneath. All three face towards the ocean, but only the last unit (closest to ocean) might have a small view of the water. The remodeling was nice at the time it was done, but...

We stayed here because the pictures and reviews were all fantastic. When we showed up the first impression of the sweet girl in the lobby and the remodel in there was impressive. once we got our keys and room number we realized that we had a step up into our room even though we had asked for an accessible room...

Stayed here for Spring Break 2017. For the price at the time this was the best value we could find in Laguna Beach through our TripSpin travel portal. Rooms have been remodeled and are nice. Showers are really nice with overhead shower head. Carpets, however, were dirty and turned our feet black. Covered parking was good. There are only upstairs...

We loved this place, totally remodeled w high end furnishings, clean as a whistle and super friendly staff. We will stay again, minutes to an almost private beach. Easy access to all freeways to get you where you need to go and a few blocks from the store.

We stayed several nights at the Crescent Bay Inn in a room with a nice though distant view of the ocean through the trees. The room was spacious and clean and well appointed with a large bed and couch. We received a really warm welcome from Josh when we arrived and our few interactions with him were consistently friendly and...

Room 109 and others have an ocean glimpse. Very quiet. Beautifully redecorated rooms. Really comfy beds. No elevator, since most of the rooms are above the carports. Excellent value at $143/night all taxes etc. included.

We wanted to spend a night a Laguna Beach on our recent trip. We wanted to be close enough to walk to a beach but really didn't want to pay premium prices or resort fees for a single night stay. We took advantage of a special winter rate and booked a room here. This gem is an older beach motel...

This hotel is like a clean Motel 6. It has everything that is needed in a hotel room, and it was even recently upgraded. Room has fridge, microwave and flat screen TV. But everything is kind of basic from the linens - bedding and towels - to the furniture. Even the hotel door was lacking a security chain. A nice...

Friendly reception at the reception. Quiet rooms despite the location next to the main road. Spacious shower room. Wonderful beach below the hotel to which one could borrow beach chairs and beach towels from the hotel.
