We stayed here while attending the Festival of the Arts. The best thing about this motel is the location. Easy walk to many beautiful beaches, crescent bay cliff, and downtown Laguna. The staff is very friendly and helpful, providing maps, and early check-in. Our room was not so nice. The bathroom had mold, the decor very outdated, the carpet needed... More

I love Laguna, but the hotels can be SO expensive. I've stayed at Art Hotel twice now over the last few months, and I think it's a great option if you're looking for a comfortable place for a reasonable price. I stayed here w/ family over Labor Day weekend for Pageant of the Masters, and again in October for a... More

Remember that you get what you pay for, and this place is just ok. It is not really a hotel, just an ordinary motel that is on the older side. Don't expect any luxury here! There is quite a bit of road noise, a noisy air conditioning unit, hard beds, and a hole in one of our towels. The TV... More

We have stayed here twice and each time Gail has been such a wonder host. The rooms were clean and neat, and the staff was on top of it if we needed more towels. Love the juices, coffee, pastries and granola bars set up in the office each morning!

Pros: location is right across the beach and about 1.25 mile to the galleries and shopping. Clean. Colorful art and comfortable furniture make this Mom and Pop hotel charming. Cons: short staffed? Front Office isn't 24 hours. 4/6 times I have contacted them prior& during my stay there is an answering machine. They do not call you back. The employee... More

The owner clearly had fun giving this basic motel personality and charm. There are colorful murals on many walls, as well as paintings in the rooms and lobby, all done by local artists. Pros: Nice clean rooms with comfortable beds and thick towels. Friendly, helpful staff. A 10-minute walk from a beautiful beach. Cons: 1-2 miles from main shopping/restaurant area... More

This hotel is an older beach hotel that has been updated. The pool area is very cute, with nice areas to sit and relax if needed. The room was a good size, clean and came with a fridge and microwave. The location is great if you want somewhere reasonably priced within walking distance to the beach. My biggest complaint is... More

This is an old motel that has been updated with some paint. They did do a nice job making the most of the pool area with some nice chairs and cute paint, but unfortunately the road noise is very significant and the A/C unit in our room was very old and extremely loud. We didn't sleep well here. Although this... More

Let's first be clear about Laguna Beach: It's about the beach. As for food and lodging, it's a seller's market. So we really want to take a break, see the water, relax. Get a little sun. Relax more. Art Hotel is just far enough out of the thick of things to be moderately priced, and close enough that we pretty... More
