This is a great little motel. Laguna Beach hotels are typically very expensive, and you have to pay an additional fee just to park your car. Not here. The Laguna Beach Motor Inn is very reasonably priced, clean and comfortable, very close to the beach, shops, restaurants and hiking trails, has a lovely interior garden and pool, and offers free...

This is in a great location on PCH, just a couple of blocks North of town, walking distance. The room was clean and spacious with a living room and kitchenette! Beautiful gardens and pool. It is a short walk to a beautiful little cove and beach, yo sun, swim or snorkel. Very reasonably priced!

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
