We approached this Inn with an open mind, after reading reviews. We knew we might not be impressed with first impression curb appeal, so didn't stumble on that. Personally greeted by Hershel, and made to feel welcomed in our oasis away from home, we could not have asked for more. Location, price, exceptional customer service, modern décor with all we...

Everything was great. Herschel, the desk clerk, was cool. He gave me allergy pills for hay fever and a couple of bottles of water to wash it down (all free of charge). We arrived after 11 p.m. The lobby was lit up and Herschel was there to greet us and even showed us to our room. We received a late... More

When you first arrive at Crescent Bay Inn the exterior looks a bit tired which is in complete contrast to the tastefully appointed lobby and rooms. This will be a gem of a place in Laguna when the outside has been fixed up to match the freshly renovated interiors. As this time it offers high end rooms, excellent customer service,... More

Nice hotel on the outskirts of Laguna beach. At least a 20mim walk to centre of Laguna beach. Local area and beaches were far more prettier than the main beach. Agree that the exterior is nothing to write home about and the parking spaces quite narrow but nicely fitted out rooms and friendly, family run place.

Listen, the outside is nothing to write home about, but the inside is on par with a W hotel. Herschel is a fantastic owner who goes above and beyond. Fabulous beach that is a stones throw from hotel. Hear the waves at night, and a 15 minute walk to the village, with beautiful galleries along the way. A great spot... More

Very nice updated rooms with great access to the beach, restaurants and city. Loved it and will stay there again. Great price compare to other coast Inns. Great room amenities including nice Tv, Refrigerator and A/C which not all Inns have on the coast.

Quick trip to Laguna Beach on a budget. Spent hours researching hotels in the area and ones that looked great or were part of a chain I knew were all more expensive than I wanted to spend. All of the hotels I found in the area and price range I desired had horrible reviews. Some reviews bordered on scary. I... More

A smart t.v is a nice thing. So is a 5 minute walk to a secluded part of the beach, and covered parking right beneath the guest rooms. This little gem is out of the center of town and therefore a bit more relaxed and it is decidedly a work in progress as the new owners finish the execution of... More

This family run hotel is just outside of the center of the town but is beautifully decorated, lots of parking and only a couple of mins walk to the beach. The shower is something spectacular! Would definitely stay here again if in the area.

We spent one night at the Crescent Bay Inn. The owners (a family) were extremely helpful and sincerely cared about our comfort and the quality of our stay. We had a recently-renovated, ocean-view room with a king-size bed. We partially enjoyed the rain shower - which was high enough for my 6'5" husband to stand under comfortably! We also loved... More
