I agree with others, that the hotel needs work. However knowing this, that the $300 a night- off season for an ocean front view- makes it worth while. The staff are always friendly and welcoming, and when we called regarding early morning construction/welding noises they offered to have them start later. Not the best way to relax on a vacation,...

25th wedding anniversary stay. Got the Reef Tower, and worth every penny! Staff exceeded my expectations, everything was truly great, and every staff person went out of their way to make me feel personally valued. Add that excellence in service to a fabulous suite with a wrap-around private balcony, and you have a great memory waiting to happen. Just so... More

My husband and I stayed at the Pacific Edge on Laguna Beach over Labor Day weekend and had a wonderful time. The hotel was just terrific and the front office staff were the friendliest and most accommodating people to work with. Our room was great except for Wi-Fi, which was spotty throughout our time. The TV would lose its signal... More

My son & I recently stayed at the Pacific Edge Hotel in Laguna Beach. For a room that cost close to $300 a night, this hotel needs major work. First, the positive. We found the staff to be entirely welcoming. We had no problems on check in and our request for a room on the upper level of the Bahia... More

My husband and I stayed here for two days in one of their honeymoon suites. The view was to die for! Romantic sunsets right outside our balcony view. They surprised us with a complimentary bottle of champagne. (definitely a nice touch) Nice restaurants in the area. A Ralphs Grocery store walking distance for convenience. Everyone was helpful and friendly throughout... More

My husband and I visited for the weekend to celebrate his birthday. It was a lovely choice for us. Relaxing and in walking distance to just about everything. We will certainly select this hotel for future stays.

With the online reviews I can only say we were pleasantly surprised with our stay. The rooms were comfortable, clean and the staff were very friendly and attentive to your requests. With the recent storm there was little to no beach at the hotel but a easy walk and you had plenty of beach to enjoy. This hotel is centrally... More

Stay a night at the Pacific Edge and it was exactly what we wanted and hoped for. The rooms are very simple, but with a modern edge to them. The benefit is that you should actually get out of the room and enjoy dining in the area, the beach, etc. You can get delivery to the room, but I have... More
