My family and I just spent a week at pacific edge and had a perfect vacation. Laguna is gorgeous and the weather was fantastic. But the most memorable part of our stay is how great, helpful, professional and accommodating everyone was who works at Pacific Edge. From the valet and housekeeping to the front desk team, these folks do a... More

My family and I have stayed at Pacific edge for over 10yrs and have generally enjoyed our experience. We understand it is a beach front hotel so the rooms can be a little sandy and beach like. With that being said our last trip was a terrible experience. I made our reservation over 3 months ahead of time and requested... More

We were on our way up the coast and decided to stay a night in Laguna Beach for the night. A quick internet search on dog friendly hotels and this was one of two places we were interested. We were on a bit of a budget and wanted to stay under 200.00 per night. Javid met us at the reception... More

We had a wonderful week long stay at this hotel! We were here for our honeymoon over from the UK and were really looking forward to staying so close to the beach, we didn't realise how close to the beach we would be until we arrived in our room, our balcony over-looked the beach and next to our room was...

Nobody should have made you feel unwelcome, and I apologize on behalf of our staff for falling short. I'll speak to them about this immediately, as well as the beach chairs. Was the interior of the room up to your standard? We'd be happy to discuss this further -- let us know if you want to talk. Regards, Sean Castady... More

I love the Pacific Edge- we have been coming every year since 2002. You cannot get a more perfect beach location. We love staying in the Reef and love that we can walk to everything. We park the car when we get here and don't get back into the car until it is time to go home. We walk to... More

We had a fabulous holiday in the USA and we stayed our last five days at the Pacific Edge. We were lucky enough to have a room looking over the ocean which was perfect. The beds were great, the room had a fridge which was very handy if you wanted to buy some fruit etc at the local supermarket, Ralph's.... More

I'm sorry you weren't happy with our renovation, Debbie. We think we've achieved a great beach look, but we'd be happy to hear more about your experience with the room. So, what didn't you like about it, exactly? That aside, it sounds like you had a fantastic trip, and it was a pleasure to be a part of it. Hope... More

Beautiful view but the hotel itself could be improved. There were improvements going on as we were staying but for the price they were charging one would expect that these should have already been done. The first night and following day after we arrived there was no hot water. This was a nightmare for us as we were travelling with... More

HI Zeva90, Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your stay. You're absolutely right -- hot water is such a basic part of your stay, and we should have been far more helpful when we tried to offer you a solution, especially considering your little one's bath time routine. I'm so sorry we fell short, but... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Imagine the cool ocean breeze brushing up against your cheek. Admire the views of the deep, blue, Pacific Ocean from the balconies overlooking the waves of one of our oceanfront rooms. Enjoy convenient sunning, surfing and swimming as the sand is just steps from your room. Pacific Edge Hotel is not only steps away from the sand of the California coast, but also steps away from everything that Laguna Beach has to offer. The hotel is within walking distance of both Laguna Village and the shops and galleries along the South Coast Highway. In addition to your holiday and vacation needs, we are known for being an ideal destination for groups, social events, and wedding. Our magnificent Villa offers a prime, one-of-kind event space, suitable for the most important and precious events. We look forward to you joining us for your next leisure or business stay. ... more   less
