Our family of 4 stayed here for a quick getaway weekend and enjoyed the location of this hotel: just across the street from a beach access and steps from the free shuttle stop. This hotel is about a mile south of the main area of Laguna Beach, and it is an easy walk or the free shuttle comes by every...

This is an updated "old-school" hotel which reminded me of a bygone era. The location was ideal for the activities I had planned. The room was clean, spacious, well-appointed, and comfortable. I was pleasantly surprised.

Hello Laura-Alabama: We are so glad that our hotel was "ideal" for your planned activities. We agree that the location and proximity to downtown, shopping, the beach and all the amazing restasraunts makes us a great spot to land! Thanks again. We hope to see you again.

Overall, the hotel was out of date, but it was clean and the staff was friendly. You need to pay for parking, and the location is a bit far from the main beach/attractions. If I return to Laguna I will most likely stay in a hotel that is closer to the main area.

Hotel is old and in need of upgrades. Shower is accessed via a 2 person Jacuzzi and is very inconvenient and hard to get in and out of plus is a slipping hazard. Breakfast is usual awful fare-sausages like cardboard, watery coffee, salty bacon and tasteless omelets.

Great location. The roof top veranda and pool are wonderful. Really good breakfast included each day. Hotel needs upgrades in rooms. Large jacuzzi tubs in bedrooms. We had a leaky ceiling and. Had to be moved. Hotel staff are very friendly and accommodating.

We’ve stayed at this hotel in the past, and although the hotel itself is fine, we found the Management not really up to the task of wanting return guests, especially guests that have left very favorable reviews in the past. We had reservations that were made months in advance for the September 2016 timeframe. We understood the refund policy when...
