This time I stayed in an oceanfront room across from the first room I had. This room isn't decorated as nice and bed is kinda hard. But great deal for the price. Staff is very helpful. Rooms are very clean. Of course you have the oceanfront million dollar view. Down the street the Surf and Sand runs 500 to 700... More

Booked an oceanfront room for Friday night and an ocean view room for Saturday (oceanfront was sold out) over Valentines weekend, flying in from Minneapolis for the weekend this was a well deserved $2k getaway from the cold. When we arrived to our room there was a barking dog in the connecting room and so we contacted the front desk,... More

That said, we want to make this right. Since we've spoken on the phone we will continue to follow up to make sure you are fully satisfied. Until then, thank you for your candor.... More

We originally intended on staying two nights which turned into three. While my other half was on business I kept quite busy/relaxed at the beach and the great proximity to the village shops. Great, beachy boutique hotel with every attention to detail including a bottle of wine at check in. Amanda and the rest of the staff were courteous and... More

That really is perfect, Kim! We're thrilled that Amanda and the rest of our team made you feel at home, and that you and Sal had such a lovely time with us. Keep us in mind next time you need a little sun -- the beach is beautiful all year long. Cheers, Thomas Lee General Manager More

Unfortunately we were only here for 2 Nights. Used it as a rest period in between two busy weeks. We were in a beach front room, with the most amazing view you could wish for. Perfect. Sitting on the balcony, watching the amazing sunset was incredible.. So relaxing. Would love to come back one day. Views that dreams are made... More

We had just flown in from the midwest and we just needed a place to clean up and sleep. We literally pulled off the road into the driveway of this hotel because it was right near downtown Laguna Beach, and we were happily surprised at the reasonable price. The pool area was cute as could be, even though we didn't... More

This is a charming little boutique hotel. Don't expect large fancy rooms it's a simple beach themed property, with a comfortable bed.mmwhat makes it special iAds the beach front rooms. They rooms are maybe 50 feet from the soothing gently crashing waves. The sun sets over the edge of catalina island, so be sure to grab some champagne and a... More

After reading the negative reviews on here, I called and begged to be upgraded to a renovated room fearing what the others looked like. I booked the room for such a low rate that I knew it had to be the dreaded "Village Rooms." However, it was Valentines weekend and I was too late in asking for an upgrade. The... More

We checked in for Valentine's day weekend in the Surf Wing, room 503. We had an amazing view! The decor in the rooms is really cute, the definitely captured the beach vibe.

Wow...the location at this hotel is unbelievable. Our room was facing the beach, and was 100 percent worth the money, so spend that little bit more on a sea view room. The sunset was beautiful, especially being able to watch it from the balcony. Our room was also lovely, very modern and stylish. In fact this was one of the... More

Our room (138) is kind of like a Motel 6 on steroids. Magnificent views. We're perched on the top floor (3rd.) overlooking the ocean which is literally at the base of the hotel. Easy walking distance to the heart of the downtown area. I guess it's the old "location, location" scenario. The price for our mid-week (February) stay is something... More

Although I'm glad you enjoyed the location, I'm sorry that the room wasn't quite what you were expecting. We definitely have a beachy feel here, and we think that our amenities and decor are reflective of that. Still, we would have been happy to bring additional towels if needed, or discuss different room options with you. Thanks for leaving that... More
