We stayed in an ocean-front room, and the location was incredible - right on the beach above the high tide line. The balcony was comfortable and private. The room was comfortable and pleasantly, if a little sparsely, furnished. The lobby staff were helpful and friendly. We had a room-service breakfast, and that was great, but a bit pricey. Having a...

My husband and I spent Christmas Eve here. Initially tried to book through Groupon, but the deal wouldn't process so I called for a same day reservation and the hotel honored the Groupon rate. We were right on the water and just the sound of the waves crashing at night was reason enough to stay here. Sure the hotel isn't... More

I have always stayed at the Inn at Laguna Beach, but it was booked, so we took a chance on Pacific Edge. I was not disappointed. Excellent views from the room, which was recently renovated. It is my understanding that the other rooms are a bit dated, but apparently the King Oceanfront rooms have all been renovated. Will definitely stay... More

We have spent time in many hotels in Laguna Beach. Pacific Edge is the best. The oceanside rooms are actually above the sand. An advantage is that being higher up makes the room private, no prying eyes here. We felt totally safe leaving the balcony doors open so we could hear the surf all night long. There are two restaurants... More

This is a wonderful hotel in a beautiful location. The staff is top notch, and our total fee for staying five nights, including valet, was less than $600. Amazing value for a beachfront property. Mini fridge in room. Ralph's two blocks away. If you can't afford an oceanfront room, ask for a corner room in the villa - definitely talk... More

If there is a heaven on Earth, this is now the place. We had an oceanfront room 128. The room could not be more perfect. The place was clean and comfortable and a reasonable size. The decor was appropriate and nice. The bed comfortable. The TV huge and has more channels than any other hotel. The staff are amazing from... More

My wife and I recently stayed here for our anniversary and what a great property. First, it is located right in the heart of all the restaurants and shops - a 4 minute walk to main beach. Next, we opted for a beach front room. We were quite literally over the surf as the tide came in. The room was... More

This was our first time to Laguna Beach and what a beautiful place! To start off the hotel, beach and most of the restaurants in the area (that have patios) are dog friendly!! When we arrived, we were met by Amanda and Madison who couldn't have been sweeter after an 8 hour drive. These girls felt my pain! 8 hours... More

Spent a delightful weekend in room 305 with partial ocean view but with full ocean sound.We are in our late 60's; the room reminded us of surfer pads where you brought a chick and chlled (*modern word for you know what:>)).

My husband and I recently stayed in an oceanfront King in the Surf wing for NYE. We were attending a wedding and had limited time in the room but overall the room was perfect. It was newly renovated and decorated in a hip beach themed style. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom a little small but the space was clean.... More
