This Best Western was lovely!!! Great location, great view and we love the size of the room! It was a pretty good price for the location, breakfast and size of the room. Very convenient walk to the pedestrian crossing to the beach. Has a lot of restaurants nearby. Lovely area to begin with. Breath taking view. Parking is included and... More

Came in late at night, and was instantly greeted by Fernando, the ever happy owner/manager. Over the course of the three days I spent there, including 4th of July I was extremely happy with the stay. The staff was friendly and had anything I needed from bandaids to a corkscrew for my wine bottle. Would definitely stay again if I... More

This is my second stay at this hotel. I was extremely satisfied each time. The office staff is very friendly and helpful and most importantly, our room was very clean! It is a small hotel and has very charming, serene gardens that surround all of the rooms. If you are bothered by street traffic or the occasional train passing by,... More

I have found stays at this hotel and the Costa Mesa Best Westerns for business purposes to be excellent. Both have great staffs and clean comfortable rooms. I am impressed what Best Western has done with its' PLUS properties. Mostly renovated with great beds and appointments at the best prices in the area. These are not California "resort" properties but... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review for our hotel. Over the years we have made our rooms more business friendly by providing Herman Miller chairs, spacious desks from Thomasville, and charging receptacles on our table lamps. We are glad to see they are being enjoyed for their purpose and look forward to seeing you again on... More

I have no complaints. It's just an average place. Front desk seems to never be at the front desk. I found it surprising there was a $14 resort fee. One, it's a motel, not a resort. Two, it was for parking (is there a shortage of parking here? I think not) and wifi. Not high speed wifi, normal, horribly slow... More

Stayed with my children. Clean nice room. Comfortable beds, a good nights rest. Friendly and courteous staff/management. Peaceful gardens in the courtyard and a unobstructed view of the ocean. Good value for the money. For me personally I would choose another Best Western up the coast in Laguna just because this particular location with children was more difficult to access... More

This hotel is close to the beach,has nice views, clean rooms, great breakfast, and no parking fee! Doheny State Park is right across the street with restaurants close by. We had a wonderful stay. We will for sure be back next summer.

We booked many rooms at this hotel for our wedding for an outrageous price. I stopped in to see what on earth I was getting for my money and found out it was a we don't want you here attitude from the general manager named Steve. Once he appeared at the desk from some back area after we stood there... More

I read the reviews and was curious if hotel was going to live up to its reviews. The reason I say that is we were traveling from Phoenix to the south Orange County area for a wedding, we stayed Friday night in Palm Springs at the Best Western Las Brisas and we were not impressed so I was skeptical.
