I completely agree with other posted comments, this is not a resort and definitely not worth the nightly rate charged for the accommodations. I booked and thought I prepaid for two nights via hotel reservation site. Upon arrival informed there was an additional "resort fee" of $22. This property appears to be more interested in selling timeshares than catering to... More

I would not call this a resort. They have a pool and exercise room, but it is more like a strip mall--lots of buildings along the busy Pacific Coast Hwy. I debated between 3 and 4 stars, but chose 4 because the staff is so friendly and helpful. The bed was comfortable, and the bathroom was fine. The kitchen facilities... More

The biggest problem NOISE! Constant traffic, trains, moaning plumbing, non-stop humming/vibrating walls from the AC or generator. You couldn't leave the windows open, the noise was louder than the tv & forget about sleeping even with ear plugs. The sofa was old/beat up & the room decor cheap. I had reservations for 4 nights, we left after 1. The desk... More

We stayed at Riviera Shores Resort for our honeymoon and we were very happy with our stay. The staff was wonderful! The resort is located across the street from a beach, however we would recommend checking out the beaches closer to Laguna Beach. The beach across from the hotel is a bit rocky. There is a train track between the... More

Reasonably priced. Good location. Nicely sized rooms. Those are the pluses. The trade-offs: signage could be improved: place is massive with connecting buildings. Easy to get lost. Bathrooms could be updated and the resort fee is a nuisance particularly if you don't use the pool (we didn't).

There were many positives: Nice balcony, beach view, good location, nice bathroom with good towels, good internet connection, and friendly staff. But there are negatives: Ants in the kitchen area of the room (they did quickly come and spray when we let them know), a strong mildew odor in the room, a concierge call to a restaurant many hours after...

We recently stayed at the Riviera Shores Resort and were very happy with the amenities. Everthing you needed, full kitchen, everything you need for the bathroom, a TV in the living room & Bedroom and even a Weber gas BBQ on the patio . It was with an ocean view but the downside was that it is located right on... More

My husband, infant daughter and I stayed in the 1 bedroom unit for two nights booked through priceline. I was very pleased with the full living room and kitchen. When you travel with a baby you bring a lot of stuff and we had plenty of room. They provided a crib at no charge which was refreshing compared to other... More

Very disappointing if you look for a resort type stay. Although booked way in advance we were assigned a room facing the back meaning facing a huge retaining wall. Not a place were you want to have a glass of wine and relax on the balcony. The room had all the things advertised but it was so dark and depressing;... More
