We stayed at this hotel before and were looking forward to our second visit. The room keys did not work, and the staff member tried to argue that they did. The shower diverter valve was broken. After the first night, the staff insisted that my nephew vacate his room so someone else could have it but did not allow him... More

Hello, We apologize for the keys not working. We have had no prior issues with those keys in the past, but it may have been a mistake on our part. As for the shower diverter valve, thank you for letting us know about that. Had we known from the beginning, we may have been able to do something about it.... More

Nice installations ! Clean and comfortable. Be prepared to walk about 30 minutes or to take your car to get to restaurants and shop downtown. It seems to me like a good quality/price ratio for expensive Laguna Beach. Will definitively go back.

I love Laguna Beach and for me there's only one hotel there, Art Hotel. The Hotels in Laguna Beach are very expensive in high season, this hotel is expensive for me too, but I like this style, and location, near Crescent Bay etc. I was there three times in April 2014 (I was living three months in Carlsbad). Enjoyed long... More

My wife, brother and sister in law and I took a 3 week motorcycle trip from Ohio to California and back.

This is an affordable, clean, and comfortable hotel in Laguna Beach, which we have stayed in consecutively for the past 4 years. We stayed here on our 34th wedding anniversary in August.

Our family had the opportunity to support a "woman owned" business. Although the hotel is located farther away from Laguna's main hub, we loved the ability to utilize the free trolley (operates July & August). The beach is located 2 blocks from the hotel and down about 26 steps to the sand. There are plenty of places to view art... More

I recently traveled 8+ hours to stay here, arriving after driving through bad conditions and feeling ill. Upon arrival the desk clerk ignored me waiting to check in, instead electing to extend a conversation with other guests about a personal topic unrelated to their stay. When I interrupted to ask to be checked in the desk clerk became hostile; when... More

The hotel was cute and charming from the looks of it. Interior was nothing fancy. I am a big amenities person and they didn't have much going on in this department. The pool seemed nice enough but that's about it. The bed was as hard and uncomfortable. The hotel was not within walking distance to downtown. I didn't have overly... More

Thank you for staying at the hotel ... and yes, our prices are inexpensive compared to the main corporate hotels in town. We are an owner / operator small business of just 28 rooms. If we charged $100 + more a night, our amenities would appreciate. And we don't offer any breakfast because we simply don't have space to serve... More

My family of 6 stayed here for a weekend. We were located right across from the pool which had nice couches for lounging. The beach was fantastic, short walk across the street.
