This is my absolute favorite beach spot to vacation. The hotel is beautiful, quaint, well decorated, comfortable, and exactly what I need! They accomodate my puppy without any dog fees and even have treats waiting for her in the room when we arrive! The beachfront rooms are so adorable and have beautiful views. The sound of the ocean lulls us... More

We stayed last November, so apologies for the late review. We were staying in the Reef Tower and our first sight of the view was at high tide. Felt as though we were on a boat as from the door we could only see the ocean through the window! Clean room with fridge, coffee machine, extremely comfortable bed and the... More

Four adults, long time friends, spent a night, in March, at the Pacific Edge in Laguna Beach. The location can't be beat. The property is right on the ocean and a block from the main town. Our two rooms were 131 & 133 in the Reef Tower. These were ocean front rooms with a balcony. We left our balcony door... More

We were very excited about our upcoming stay at the Pacific Edge Hotel. Unfortunately, our room was unacceptable for us to stay in at the hotel. The room was rundown and looked nothing like the photo on the Pacific Edge Hotel website. The staff was very apologetic about our room and did their best to be helpful to our family.... More

While I'm glad that our team made you feel at home, I'm sorry that you weren't as happy with your room. We are continuously making the necessary updates, but we feel that our beach-side location makes the experience an unforgettable one. We hope to have another chance to wow you soon, but until then, thank you for your candor. Best,... More

My wife, daughter and I had a fantastic trip at the Pacific Edge Hotel. We live in Dallas, but my wife is from the Laguna Beach area and I am from LA - so we felt like tourists in our home town. The hotel is in a great central location within walking distance of a ton of great spots. While... More

Can't beat the location, right on the beach and you get to enjoy the sun in the private beach. The price is "affordable" given the location. Friendly staff. Valley parking only but not a big deal since we spend all day on the beach anyway and everything is withing walking distance. Definitely will come back again.

This is an older building; the rooms are not greatly soundproofed and feel a bit run down. I'm a budget traveler and chose the cheapest rooms, which are on the road-side versus beach-side - so lots of noise from cars as well. But the aircondition/fan unit made it quiet enough, and for the area, it is reasonably priced (valet parking... More

Thanks for that feedback! While we're glad you enjoyed your trip, we're sorry if you were a bit disappointed with your room. But, we hope that our proximity to the beach and our location within town made up for it. Thanks again, and we hope to have you back soon! Best, Thomas Lee General Manager More

Me and my friend were on a road trip passing through Laguna beach and decided wanted to stay couple of nights. After asking around for prices, the Pacific edge came the most appealing from them all.

My friend and I spent 3 days hiking from San Clemente toNewport Beach, stopping at 3 hotels along the way. The Pacific Edge was, by far the best. The friendliness and their willingness to make our experience wonderful was above and beyond, especially Amanda and Madison. We were upgraded to the Villa from our standard oceanfront room, and after recovering... More
