Stayed here for 5 nights pre-cruise and 3 nights post cruise rather than Los Angeles or San Pedro since I once lived in Laguna Beach. Gail the hotel manager is wonderful, very accommodating, very knowledgeable and helpful with dining suggestions. The property and room were very clean, bed comfortable. I have read other reviews regarding traffic noise, however I stayed... More

We only were here one night and we had a late arrival - so we had to call ahead by 15 minutes to wake up the onsite manager. That all went smoothly and she was polite despite the fact that it was 12:30am. The lobby is packed with artsy stuff for sale and in the mornings they have fruit and... More

Gail is a doll. She operates this property as if it were her personal residence. Very warm and inviting. You could spend hours marveling at the collection of art. Rooms are comfortable and the location is easy to access all the best Laguna has to offer. (Underground parking is adequate and safe from street traffic.)

Friends or ours recommended this quaint and quiet hotel. The rooms were nice and the bed was very comfortable. The employees were very helpful in suggesting local activities. Admired the paintings in the rooms. We will be back.

What a lovely motel! It is conveniently located on the north end of town, has ample parking, helpful staff, pool, clean rooms, elevator... This was our second time staying here, so you know it was good.There is now a city shuttle that stops nearby and goes into town.

The hotel rooms are dated and the breakfast is not substantial. If that is important then you may want to stay elsewhere. If you want a customer service friendly staff in a great location, then this is the hotel. Gail, the owner, cares about her hotel and the experience her guest have.

Stayed here at the start of our trip. Rooms very clean and bed very comfortable. Exactly what was needed after a long flight. Hotel included air conditioning and tea/coffee making facilities. Hotel is in definite need of an update/upgrade however it does have a kooky style about it. Perhaps a little modernisation and a fresh coat of paint would do... More

This is a great hotel to stay in when visiting Laguna Beach. We have used it twice now and have had no complaints. The receptionists are really helpful and provide great information about the area and the free shuttle bus service that runs to downtown. The rooms are spacious and clean.
