Great Location; on the beach. Rooms are nice. Rafaella, our room maid, was always pleasant and went beyond expectations to my our stay perfect. The hotel is an easy walk down to central Laguna and Main Beach. Excellent dining possibilities within walking distance.

Wow!! Let me start off by saying this place is a MOTEL. Not a hotel. Let me tell you what 500.00 a night gets you. An ocean veiw. That's it. A surly man (security.) telling me I can't leave my car where it was parked to check in. No late check out. No priorities in the restaurant for reservations. No... More

Day one was great...until later in the evening when the room next to us was out of control. Way too many people were staying in the room next to Us (6-8) and they were loud, had unruly children that ran up and down the hallways and parents constantly yelling at them--all hours of the day and night. They slammed doors,... More

The room was small. Barely enough room for a bed. The bathroom had mold in the shower which was a huge turnoff. However, the view and the beach are amazing! Love that they have chairs, beach towel and umbrellas on loan for guests. Super convenient. I would not stay here again because of the bathroom alone. Yucky.

Love Pacific Edge Hotel. All u need to bring is your swim suit & sunscreen. Towels, umbrellas, chairs are all furnished. The oceanfront rooms are pricey, but so worth it. The staff is so accommodating. Can't wait to go back next year.

My husband and I went to the Pacific Edge for our anniversary. We initially did not reserve a beachfront room, but when we checked in, we were upgraded to a beachfront room in honor of our anniversary. The room was comfortable and clean with a king bed, a wide screen tv, a good sized bathroom, and a table and two... More

My husband and I enjoyed a most fabulous, spontaneous trip to the Pacific Edge over the weekend. Ocean-front, immaculate room with a balcony, complete with beach loungers and an umbrella. From the moment we pulled up to the front door, we were treated like VIPS. Impeccable service, gorgeous view, unbeatable location in relation to restaurants, shopping and sight-seeing. The beach...

Fairly large, sprawling property that has street front and ocean front buildings. We stayed in an ocean front room in the Reef building. The other building with ocean front rooms is the Surf building. I suspect the other rooms are OK only if you're planning to spend most of your time exploring beautiful Laguna. The balconies are a little small... More
