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

Hello Thank you so much for your feedback, I really appreciate hearing back from you. So glad you were able to enjoy your stay, it really means a lot to us.

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

The Art Hotel was such a wonderful place to stay! We were greeted by the kindest couple every time we came back to the hotel. They made us feel like they knew us on a personal level. Our room was big and super clean. The art hanging on the wall added some fun personality to our room. The pool was... More

You may find this odd, but we've already been wowed by the owner and we haven't even stayed yet! We were looking for a place to stay over a busy time this year and I immediately was drawn to this hotel, it's quaint town and the sounds of other travelers reviews. I was disappointed to find the hotel was booked... More

Close to beach, free parking, free WiFi, well kept, clean and best value in Laguna. What more could you want? You could pay 3 times the price at another Laguna Beach hotel and get much less. I recommend Art Hotel for a great family or couple stay at the beach (has a great pool also).
