I stayed in a "Beachfront One King Bed Surf" room several weeks ago. While the hotel's location is very good, the rooms and general property vibe are very much on the level of a roadside motel. Particularly disappointing to me was the large air gap below the door to my room. This dramatically reduces the sense of privacy in the... More

The location is right next to the main drag in Laguna, and you can walk to all the shops and restaurants. The staff that we encountered were very friendly. The product is what dragged down the review. The room itself is very similar to what you would find in a motel. The bathrooms were very outdated, and extremely worn. Drapes... More

The most outstanding staff I have seen in quite some time. Always friendly and courteous and responsive to requests. On the flip side, the room I thought I reserved was not what I got. The pictures on the website lead you to think all the rooms are facing the ocean and balconies come with them! Not so..if you book a... More

Our room above the beach, 504, was perfect for a weekend away with my wife, and without the kids. All of Laguna Beach is within a comfortable walking distance. The view was fabulous. We enjoyed relaxing on our room's balcony and watching the people, dolphins, whales, and sunsets.

We did not have the highest expectations for the "ocean view room" we'd booked, knowing hotels often overstate the scene. Our room, however, set the bar to new heights. It was lovely: beautifully furnished, large comfortable bed, wooden floor and new carpet, and a floor to ceiling sliding door leading to our private patio which was surrounded by a low... More

I met Luis the 1st time I stayed here. He provided excellent customer service. Now every time I come to Orange County on business, Pacific edge is my 1st choice to stay at. Luis, Javid, and Zach are the 3 guys I've dealt with and all 3 provided excellent service. I highly recommend this place.

I took my two daughters (ages 18 and 21) for a long weekend at Pacific Edge. Great location, right on the beach, within walking distance to many restaurants and shops. Paid a little more for a room overlooking the Pacific, and glad I did, as it had a balcony and we spent quite a bit of time on the balcony... More

First off I have to mention Luis, this guy made the trip amazing, the 90 degree weather helped, but he went out of his way to make our anniversary trip amazing. I called ahead and when I arrived he had a great corner room waiting for me. I grabbed my wife a little later in the day and we had... More
