I travel frequently, and write reviews. I do not believe I have ever stayed in a more gastly hotel. Lets' see where to begin, snarly valet was a preview. Desk clerk didn't know what floor the ice ws on or where ice buckets were. Our room was simply awful. The carpet was so filthy we had to keep our shoes... More

I won't repeat what is written in other reviews but will state simply that this hotel is a historical landmark. That means that it is over 100 years old and is built of wood. The last true renovations happened over 30 years ago and it is "a challenge" according to the manager, to get approval for and to pay for... More

We got a great deal on our room at Hotel Laguna and now I know why it was so cheap! Horrible beds, uncomfortable mattresses and dirty linens. The room was the noisiest room I've ever stayed in starting with the street noise and finishing off with noisy guests in the adjacent room. The service at the beach club was far... More

Hotel Laguna is supposed to be a 'historic boutique hotel'. Historic yes but boutique definitely not. Service/staff is really friendly and the location is excellent, its right at the beach and in the middle of the town center of Laguna Beach with many nice places to eat and drink nearby. About the room, beds are comfortable and that is most... More

We loved the simplicity of this hotel located right on the sand and centrally located to town. The staff is warm and attentive, which made the stay even more wonderful. The hotel doesn't have the latest décor, but that was fine by us as most of the beachfront hotels that do are overpriced!

Hi This hotel is older but the LOCATION couldn't be better. Room Very old and should be updated but it was clean which is what is most important. Furniture and TV were very old school and motel like, not necessarily a charming. The bed was great and did not have a complaint. I left my window open and was able... More

We stayed at this hotel before and were a bit disappointed by the facility which was run down. We gave it a try again last week end and were impressed. The hotel was partially remodeled and the cosmetic improvements did wonders. The room (215) has an ample ocean view, the décor is acceptable and the bed is actually very comfortable.... More

My wife and I stayed here 2/15. Had room 210. Small room but comfortable and view was excellent. This is an older remodeled hotel right on the beach. The restaurant was good but service could be better. Front desk was very nice. You can't beat the location. Private beach, ocean views from I think every room. Bathroom was small but... More

Great location, great views at breakfast and great for a short overnight stop. Wifi did not work in our room, the room was VERY outdated and the bathroom was rusty and unclean - i could not bring myself to have a shower/bath and using the toilet was a struggle! Staff are not rude but are also not polite... We did... More

The reviews about this hotel are true. It's old, rooms are small, staff are friendly, so expect that if you go. When you walk into the room, it is a little surprising because it's not up to modern standards. How often do you stay in a hundred year old hotel? Never. So, you will be awed a little bit and...
