Comfortable and very clean room. The room is very large -- even has closet. Bed is top rate. Microwave and fridge came In handy for drinks and snacks. Not in the center of town where rooms rates are much higher but a short rode to everything. The new owner has totally updated place. He is young and eager to please.... More

The small property is owned by a family who has several other hotels in their portfolio. Thus they are very attentive to our needs. The Crescent Bay Inn is a gem of a find. It is just north of the Main Street area of Laguna Beach.

My girlfriend and I just stayed at the Crescent Bay Inn this past weekend and we had a blast! First off, Hershel, is awesome! The check in was quick and easy and Hershel was kind enough to walk us to our room and show us how the dual head shower and smart TV worked (you can connect to Netflix!). The... More

We stayed here last night and have had an great day. The room was very clean and well designed. The bathroom shower with two shower heads (rain fall) was perfect for relaxing. There is a great view of the ocean and oak trees from the bed (loved it). The isolated beach cove is only steps away - an easy 3... More

First off, I lived in Laguna Beach for nearly 8 years and love it. So I appreciate that this hotel is owned by a local who knows the same surf shops and restaurants that I grew up with. Second, the owner, Herschel, is probably the friendliest hotelier I've ever met. Now, none of that would matter if the rooms weren't... More

My wife and I have always enjoyed Laguna Beach and WOW did we discover a gem by staying at the Crescent Bay inn. First of all, it is not located in the touristy and congested South Coast Hwy section of town, which has high hotel prices to go with it. This family owned, service first classic California Inn is nothing... More

The major revamp of the rooms last year is very apparent. The place still unfortunately still feels tired and a little bit underwhelming. We stayed two nights in an Oceanfront room - pretty expensive for what we got. The other TripAdvisor reviews were a little bit misleading for us - I'm not sure this should rate so highly.

On behalf of Crescent Bay Inn we'd like to thank you for staying with us. we would like to clarify that our rooms are not Ocean Front due the some residential houses between us and the sand.

The location is great, Crystal Cove is a really nice little beach with fairly large tide pools accessible even at half tide, and there are fun rocks to clamber over to get to the next beach. Downtown Laguna is a bit of a walk, it's less than a mile so if you're used to walking it's nothing, just be aware... More
