Pacific Edge is our go to hotel in Laguna. The oceanfront rooms have fantastic views of the beach areas. We enjoy the nights listening to the waves through our open door to the balcony. In the mornings we ordered room service, and stayed on the balcony until the sun was out. I am allergic so I must have nonsmoking and... More

We came to Pacific Edge to end a great day with the family and enjoy the night at the beach. Javid went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed to have an enjoyable night. Checking in, you can expect to be greeted with a polite attitude, but Javid made us feel like we had known each... More

What a great stay my wife and I had at Pacific Edge Hotel! We spent four nights here and it was just what we needed. The front desk staff was exceptionally accommodating as were housekeeping and the valets. The property was clean, well maintained and right on beautiful Laguna Beach. From our room (which was oceanfront) and lanai we could... More

We received excellent service at the Pacific Edge Hotel. Everybody was gracious and eager to help any way they could. Upon check-in Zach and Javid were wonderful. They upgraded our room to an ocean view with a balcony. We were thrilled. The room was large and well kept. Room service was also very good. We had a perfect trip and... More

I'm definitely happy to hear that the service hit the mark -- I'll be sure to let the team know that you said so! I'm sorry if anything about your room wasn't quite as impressive, though.

This hotel is right on the water. The rooms are cute. Overall it is a wonderful hotel to stay at. It can be pricey so if you're looking for a place on a budget, this might not be the one you want. But still a great hotel.

We stayed at Pacific Edge for 4 evenings and experienced two different room types. The first two nights we were in a King room (#129) in the Reef building, right on the beach. As others have said, you can't beat this location! The room was clean, updated, and the balcony facing the ocean was perfect. The last two nights we... More

Stayed here over Christmas. This trip was meant to be a relaxing holiday weekend getaway fully disconnected from technology and unnecessary distractions. What I was looking for: lots of space, ocean view, central location so I wouldn't have to drive for food, reasonable price, dog friendly, less than 5 minute walk to the beach. All of those expectations were met... More
