If you're looking for the beach, it's right here! Perfect location, on the sand and easy walking distance to Main Beach or downtown area. Enjoyed the breakfast at Driftwood Kitchen. Beautiful sunsets from our balcony and a perfect spot to beat the heat!

We stayed in the Bahia building and the the room was very spacious with a kitchenette and very a large balcony and very minimal ocean view. The large room was great because we were 5 people and everyone had a little space. The bathroom was rather small. The hotel is beachfront so there is easy beach access, with a great... More

Once or twice a year I drive down from the Malibu area to get away from work and daily life to relax and chill here in Laguna Beach. The Pacific Edge is always my spot and James is always the best Front Desk Manager to take care of my stay. Great time...Thanks!!

Called in for special request that is not the norm and even though difficult, Javid came up with a solution that I know helped me add a special touch to a couples romantic vacation. Excellent customer service these days is found far and few. So refreshing to work with someone that really cares and tries to do their best and... More

Love this beautiful hotel right on Laguna Beach. I've actually been lucky enough to stay here both for work and pleasure now and it's the Laguna Beach hotel I recommend to all my friends. If you stay here definitely make sure to have a drink during sunset at The Deck, located right on the same property as the hotel. The... More

Employees at front desk, valet, reservations, very nice and helpful. Disappointed in the layout of room, bathroom size Very small, and, quite a walk to restaurants (2). Server very pleasant in the deck, honestly believe for the price not worth it.

I'm really proud of my team for showing you the excellent customer service that we're all about here, Cheryl. That said, I want your room to leave just as positive of an impression, and I really apologize if that wasn't the case. Although it looks like you enjoyed parts of your stay, you should have walked away completely satisfied with... More

Very well located in the downtown area and at walking distance of restaurants, shops, and galleries. We got an ocean front room and it was absolutely astonishing. At night we felt that our room was hanging on top of the ocean and the sound of the waves was very soothing.

It sounds like our location and the view from your room helped make your last stay really special, and that's really great to hear. I just love that you were as impressed with the views as we are! Thank you so much for taking the time to spread the word here on TripAdvisor -- the entire team really appreciates it.... More

Great Balcony and view of the ocean and the food was good. Very small rooms, especially the bathroom. No space to put anything in the bathroom. Bathtub was plugged up. I was told there was bike storage but in fact there was not. So, overall, nice view but not worth the $522.00 for one night!!!!!!

Although I'm really glad that you enjoyed the view and the balcony, it sounds like a couple of other aspects of your visit didn't quite hit the mark for you. I want each of our guests to be happy with each part of their stay, so I'm really sorry if that wasn't the case for you. We would have gladly... More
