The guys who work at your place are awesome: Hershel, Jeff and Shane, right? We were made at home and given lots of information about Laguna. Room was comfortable, ac, parking, free breaky, walk to gorgeous beach, what more could you want? We would also like to say: Go to the Crystal Cove beach -- so beautiful, there is a... More

It's a great place. I just want a clean comfortable room when Im in Laguna. I don't need a full on resort. Its a good location. Updated beautifully and clean! It was also so quiet in the morning.... you don't hear doors or maid carts. I had a room in the back with ocean view. Next time I will bring... More

While it doesn't look like much from the outside, the Crescent Bay Inn is a great stay in Laguna Beach! The rooms are well upgraded, with big screen TVs, nice sitting area, fridge and microwave. The bed is large and on the firm side. The pillows were too small for my taste (my only real complaint). The shower is outstanding!... More

I booked this having read the previous reviews on here and I wasn't disappointed. The staff are so friendly, their customer service is exceptional. The rooms are beautifully decorated. Well done to the guys that run it, your attention to detail and grwat care for your business shows. We took a short walk to the beach (about 2 minutes) which... More

We just got back from what can only be described as a heavenly experience. We stayed at Crescent Bay Inn. First of all we had a wonderful ocean view without all the people and noise. The room had everything you needed. Want to play cards or eat or drink, a wonderful table pulls out from the desk for your convenience.... More

Check in was smooth & friendly. Room was recently refurbished & immaculate with great shower. Paid extra for ocean view room but no sight of beach. One star knocked off for the typical American sugar stacked unhealthy hotel buffet style breakfast.

This was a diamond in the rough! We were a bit taken back on our arrival, curb appeal zero. But... the minute we were in the lobby we were won over. The service was great,all three gentlemen we dealt with were delightful. Rooms were beautiful,location perfect, easy access to the beach, continental breakfast and coffee available all day. We would... More

We needed one night in Laguna Beach to attend the Pageant of The Masters. Most hotels were overpriced but Crescent Bay got good reviews on TripAdvisor, was priced better, so we took a chance. Glad we did!! While not pretty on the outside, the rooms were great, as is the location! Large rooms, recently re-decorated, very modern and clean. The... More

The room was updated and very clean. The location ( free shuttle to down town) and beach were great. The staff was helpful. The owner was especially attentive.. It surpassed my expectations . No up-charges . Free parking and wi-Di.

As others have said, the outside is deceptive and the best they could do with the facility. Great interior. 3 minute walk to Crescent Bay which is a delightful beach. Free usage of beach umbrella, chairs, snorkeling masks, boogie boards. Free shuttle directly in front.
