What fun we had at the Art Hotel! I'd recommend it to anyone visiting Laguna Beach. Such a cool and interesting accommodations! It's in an ideal location on the Pacific Coast Highway, a short walk to Crescent Cove Beach and its accompanying lookout point park. The neighborhood was lovely. Our hotel room, #106, was nicely decorated and very spacious. The... More

Very accommodating receptionist; she upgraded our room with an across-the-street view of the ocean; fun decorations, very artsy; quiet in spite of being on PCH; good price considering the high-priced area.

Great hotel. Perfect place to stay for going to The Pageant of the Masters. Right on the trolley line in front of the hotel took us downtown and to the play. Our adjoining rooms near the pool were comfortable and we had pur breakfast outside on the deck. Owner very friendly and interesting. Artwork on the premise very enjoyable.

We got this as a 'hot rate' on Hotwire, which means we didn't know the hotel before paying. The room was clean and comfortable and there is definitely art throughout the complex. We were just there one night so we didn't use the pool but it looked like a fun place just to hang out. The little balcony off the... More

Creatively inspiring and clear blue water beach location. Greatest amenities are the seating areas outside almost every room and a chic upper deck with a view of the ocean. Artwork everywhere. The pool does not have a single lounge chair, rather couches, overstuffed chairs, umbrellas and ottomans. Host Gail Duncan inspects every room before she gives you the keys! Rooms... More

I chose this hotel because it was the cheapest by a couple hundred dollars for the weekend I needed to come. Definately a mom-n-pop places, and has real potential to be something very unique. The owner is the manager, and is very personable and available. It was quaint, and the artwork throughout the property is interesting. The clientele reminded me... More

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 The bathroom had mold, the decor very outdated, the carpet needed...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!
