This is our go to beach hotel when we visit Orange county. They have a variety of room shapes, sizes, and amenities. Look at the map of the hotel before booking so you can see what room fits your needs best. Some have kitchens, some have a small sunroom that fits a rollaway bed, some have full or partial ocean...

Thanks for the great review and observations. While we only have 41 rooms plus the 3 bedroom Beach House, you called it perfectly, every room is different and it's always good to review them and make sure you get the one that best suits your needs.

At the last minute my wife and I decided to spend the night in Laguna Beach. We checked this place out and even though we couldn't get an ocean view, the one room they had left was great. The place has a lot of amenities which we took advantage of. Everyone we dealt with was extremely friendly. Price was in... More

I saw some of the other photos and I was really confused if they were from the same place I stayed last night. Last night and this morning, I had a beautiful view straight into the room and balcony of another couple. I also understand that we're on the coast and it should be cooler, but please, please, please- fix... More

Thank you for sharing your experience and I apologize that it was less than perfect. We did have a recent and unusual heat wave and it put a strain on our resources. Fortunately the weather is now back to normal and quite comfortable. We will be discussing the stains you mentioned with the housekeeping team as that is not acceptable... More

When not on the beach in front of the hotel, we were with friends on the hotel's patio passing the time away watching surfers, boats and the waves below or at night just watching stars and listening to the waves. A group of people used the hotel's BBQ grills for one dinner. We were fortunate no one was using the... More

I am writing this review from the room. Booked it over a half year ago for July 4th. The room is considered to have a view, but all I can see is a gravel roof. Very disappointed! My girl had been looking forward to this trip. The room is fine not fancy but it was supposed to be about the... More

Thank you for your comments. I am sorry you felt our staff was not interested in accommodating your request.

We loved staying here. We had a surf view room and enjoyed every second of our five night stay. The worst thing about this hotel is having to leave. We had a few minor problems with the room, for example the towel rack was broken, but everything was fixed immediately. They supply trays for the continental breakfast and we enjoyed... More

Older facility but very neat and clean. Rooms vary greatly depending on size and location to beach. Stayed one night in rom 201. Was not disappointed at all. Great view. Quiet room. Easy walk down to beach. The only negative was the small, cramped parking spaces, but that did not detract from a great stay. Would recommend to anyone staying... More

Thank you for sharing your experience of staying at the Laguna Riviera. Room 201 is one with amazing views up and down the coast and of course the beach and ocean. Many select it because you can leave the shutters open and wake to the view of the crashing waves and sound of the surf. It is a real guest... More

Thank you for your review and long term patronage. It is an honor to be able to warrant such loyalty and to know that we deliver an experience that warrants many repeat visits.
