We made our reservations using Costco travel under the impression this was a BW property and thus would have the BW level of quality and service you might expect. Ahh, but not so. At check in we were told it was no longer a BW and then caught on quickly when absolutely nothing had BW on it. We got to...

It is rather common to find kind and helpful hotel personnel, but it is rare to find such degree of courtesy, attention and solicitude. We were actually offered an upgrade to a very nice top floor room, with view on the ocean, as well as a $20 gift certificate to the nearby outstanding Mozambique Restaurant. Breakfast was complete a satisfactory....

My husband and I wanted a quick getaway for Presidents Day Weekend and we found the perfect place at the Laguna Brisas! First of all, parking is $20 a day. My husband refuses to pay for parking. So, he found a spot behind the hotel on the street. But it is permit only from 9PM-8AM. There's also metered parking just...

This place had a room block for a wedding I was attending. Not sure what I was expecting, but even with the room block rate, this place is a dump. The rooms are dated and have cheesy plastic jacuzzi tubs. Yuck! When checking in, they didn't just take a credit card for incidentals and let me pay at the end...

Our check in process was super easy and the staff was so friendly. They suggested a restaurant right across the street and it was a hit with the whole family. The room was beautiful furnished and the bed was comfy. We had a room with a balcony and had a beautiful ocean view. The breakfast in the morning was yummy...

This hotel is near downtown Laguna Beach. The shops and beaches are well within walking distance of the hotel. The hotel is currently under going a remodel . I stayed in one of the newly remodeled rooms and it was excellent! The breakfast is acceptable. Typical hot breakfast for a hotel. The bed was very comfortable. Kevin and his staff...

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.

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.

“Regardless of the room location, you do not get a direct beach view. Do ask for a room toward the front of the property for a partial view.”
