This little place reminded me of staying at Grandma's house. We rented a little room with a nice private balcony overlooking the ocean. It also had a separate little seating area inside with a table and two chairs. The bathroom was clean. It is an older motel built in the 50s, but seems to be well kept. There is a... More

It was a busy weekend in Laguna Beach and we had no bookings - hence we stayed here. Yuk what a mistake. Honestly people, just keep looking for somewhere else. We had 2 rooms one for myself and my husband and 1 room for our 3 kids. The smell of mould and (maybe cats pee), was just awful - if... More

We arrived in Laguna not knowing where to stay or where the motels were located. Came across this motel very close to the centre of Laguna and so we gave it a go. It was a Friday night and the offer price was very reasonable however the owner just failed to sell the positive aspects of the motel. The motel... More

My girlfriend and I took a recent vacation to Cali that was unexpectedly extended due to car problems. We stumbled upon this hotel by chance. It was the first hotel we came across when we entered into Lugana Beach and we saw that it was only a block from the beach. The rate for a Monday was only $99 so... More

This hotel has a great location just steps from the beach and a large heated pool. But for $200 a night we got a room in desperate need of renovation, a "kitchenette" stuffed into a closet with the smell of leaking gas. No phone, no clock, no view and a refrigerator next to the bed instead of a night stand... More

I've stayed at his motel for many years. I am 42 with 4 children and i own a business. This is not a fancy hotel if that is what you are looking for...however, there is a great little coffee shop just across the street that we go and get early morning java and head down the street to Shaws Cove...

The outside grounds were gorgeous and it even had a swimming pool, BUT everything else was below standards. The room had 2 queen beds (which were actually comfortable if you could get past looking at the falling apart box spring), lots of pillows, a 'dining' table and chairs which blocked the main door from opening all the way, a crammed...
