The rooms are nice, the location is great (a block's walk to Heisler Park). However, we had a surprise on the credit card will when we received it. A $200 penalty for smoking in the room (which we did not). I called and asked for help. The desk clerk couldn't do anything and said he'd give a message to the... More

This hotel is clean and pleasant and is on Pacific Coast Highway, up the hill from Laguna Village (across from Las Brisas). My girlfriend and I visited Laguna to attend the pageant of the masters. This location was excellent because after the show the trolley dropped us off right in front of the inn. Our room was decorated in a... More

After seeing all of the positive reviews for The Tides Inn, I was very excited for our stay. That excitement was VERY short-lived. This was my husband and I first overnight stay away from our two small children and the one thing we wanted was a good nights sleep. It seemed like The Tides Inn was dead-set on making that... More

This hotel is is by far the best place I have ever stayed at. The whole staff was friendly and EXTREMELY accommodating. John and Sophia made sure the littlest details were taken care of and Dale was so nice to allow a package to be UPS'd there last minute to save a bride from having a breakdown :) I love... More

After selecting this hotel on the Internet, sight unseen, we were a little concerned about what we might find. We couldn't have been more ecstatic about the place! Everything was perfect, everything. The most helpful staff gave us much-needed info and brochures about getting around town, the owner helped us get our luggage up the stairs, got us ice, whatever... More

We have stayed here twice, I like it because most rooms have kitchenettes, and I like that when we travel..of course when we go to laguna it's more of an eating vacation, so I don't even cook breakfast,..but I like having the option. The rooms are adorable, and comfortable, and the pool area is very cool, room to lounge and... More

Now we are looking forward to your third stay with us. We also love our kitchenettes and actually have 3 rooms with full kitchens. I love that you do need the kitchenette! Anyway, please remind your lovely husband that taking a short walk to eat and drink is really quite healthy. See you soon and thanks so much, Linda More

I wanted to be kinder to this hotel than 2 stars, but it just doesn't deserve it. Firstly it's overpriced. $230 a night for a room that barely fits small queen bed and a bathroom that's small by Paris standards is not cool (the shower is the smallest I've ever been in). The room had no windows save one small... More

We stayed 2 nights and the location was super convenient to the Pageant of the Masters. You can walk to it or take the free trolley that runs up and down this main street. There is parking within the courtyard but spaces are narrow esp. for SUVs. There is a pool, as well. From our room on the 2nd floor,... More

We are happy to hear you will stay with us again. Our location is great. All of us love to walk all over town also and agree with you about Heisler Park. It is spectacular--kind of like walking in a postcard. We apologize for the plumbing problems. (hoping you told us so we repaired the problem before you left) and... More

I don't want to give this Gem of a hotel the amazing review it deserves for fear of not being able to get a room every year when we come for the Pageant of the Masters. It's location is perfect, the staff is wonderful and the rooms are enchanting. Would not think of staying anyplace else.
