You may find this odd, but we've already been wowed by the owner and we haven't even stayed yet! We were looking for a place to stay over a busy time this year and I immediately was drawn to this hotel, it's quaint town and the sounds of other travelers reviews. I was disappointed to find the hotel was booked... More

Close to beach, free parking, free WiFi, well kept, clean and best value in Laguna. What more could you want? You could pay 3 times the price at another Laguna Beach hotel and get much less. I recommend Art Hotel for a great family or couple stay at the beach (has a great pool also).

To be honest, I picked this place for the price because we were not here much except to sleep. It is a no frills hotel north of the main area of town. The trolley stops across the street, but we never needed it. The pool and outside areas were charming, but the weather was cool and damp the whole time... More

We arrived at Laguna Beach slightly disorientated after the swirling, whirling switch backs of highway 74. Nausea is the price you pay for the beauty of a scenic drive. Our accommodation was at “THE ART HOTEL.” Gail, the owner, was lovely with her red hair, as she drifted about in her flowing outfits making sure you were comfortable and feeling... More

I was happy that after finding a reasonable hotel, lots of additional fees weren't added on. Parking was free and the location was good. It was a little more quiet here than in the busier parts of town. The room was clean and the bed was decent. I planned to spend my time elsewhere so it was a good place... More

Pros: relatively inexpensive; free parking and wifi Cons: Very dated room décor – think 1980’s pastel wall paper and low end finishes. Uncomfortable beds – hard mattress with very little padding. Rooms facing PCH are very loud. A/C unit gives you two options very cold or not cold at all. Not within walking distance of downtown Laguna. 1 mile from... More

My wife and 2 dogs were looking forward to a nice trip to Laguna Beach. Booked this hotel. We booked a wheelchair accessible room due to the fact that I am in a wheelchair. The hotel said they did have wheelchair accessible rooms and was also dog friendly. So we thought we are all set. Took about 90 minutes to... More

We stayed at the Art Hotel for 3 nights in March, we drove in off the street, Gail the owner was very receptive and obliging, she showed us the rooms and gave us a run down on the local sights and restaurants. The hotel is close enough to walk into the town area and to the beach. The room was... More

Different vibe here, very open and close to beaches and town, Affordable and my room was very clean with all the necessitates in place and working. The whole Art thing is different and cool. It's not the corporate box and should be approached with an open mind.
