The room was dark, dingy, and wreaked of cigarette smoke. Even worse was the deodorizer they used to try and mask the odor. I went back to the desk and asked for another room. The manager (owner?) said there wasn't another room available. Her exact words were, "we're booked and we just can't "build another room for you." I told... More

First of all - we apologize for the inconvenience anyone experiences here. We do have a "No Smoking" policy, unfortunately we can't watch what our guests do behind closed doors. We do our best to resolve all issues the best we can; however there are times when a guest chooses to leave. We would have continued working with this guest,... More

My husband and I were traveling through Laguna Beach and decided to stay over. We found the Art Hotel, I had heard it was a very nice place to stay for the price in a good location. Our room was quite a surprise!!! The furnishings, bedding, linens and touches were 5 star quality. The outside deck area was being repainted,... More

Room was clean but dated...and only slightly resembled the pics on the hotel's web site in terms of decor. Extra blanket found in the closet had holes in it. Peeling paint around the entrance door, cheap brown carpet and a general look of age throughout the room. Parking underground was easy and convenient. Light sleepers beware: the bar fridge in...

Thank you for your stay at the hotel. Unfortunately traffic can be very noisy; it being the busiest hwy in the city. We are a small family owned hotel, and sometimes things do go unnoticed - however, we'll address any issue as soon as possible, if told by our guests. We hope you enjoyed Laguna Beach. More

We stayed here for two nights in February and really appreciated this hotel. This is an older hotel that the current owners are still working on upgrading. The room is large enough and comfortable. It has a refrigerator and coffee maker, both useful. They offer a small breakfast (fresh fruit and some fresh pastries). There is a small pool. Usefully,... More

The front desk lady was awesome, very nice and welcoming but whomever does the reservations needs a tune up. We stayed one night and the hotel itself needs work but was clean enough which is the minimum. I called later after checking out and was told no big deal come on in when you want and stay for another night.... More

We always do our best to accommodate our guests. At the time of asking, we had a room available. Just before booking the rooms, we did our best to contact the guest to verify if they wanted an additional evening. We tried for hours, with no luck in trying to reach her, afterward concluding to book the room. When the... More

I read several reviews about this property before I decided to book here. I really enjoy staying at "mom and pop' type of places and this one is right up there. When we arrived we were greeted and given instructions on where and how to get to the beach, etc. Most of the hotels in Laguna Beach are off the... More

We've stayed at the Art Hotel several times but the last two times we've noticed it's looking a bit neglected. At first glance of the rooms they seem nice. However the beds that haven't been replaced need to - now. The bathrooms pretty much in every unit need to be updated - now. The microwave in our room had not... More

Thank you for your stay, and we apologize for your inconvenience. Being a single operator with this hotel, it's often difficult to catch everything. We heavily rely on our guests to share their experiences, positive or negative. And sometimes our cleaning crew doesn't catch things either. As soon as we read this comment, I immediately dropped what I was doing... More

We were visiting family very close by and were there a week. Plenty of room in double queen and owner very helpful with ideas of places to go and what to do. Had difficulty getting into tub and she had a grab bar there within hours. No problem with PCH noise.
