I used to stay here when it was the old Aliso Creek Inn. I saw that they are reopen as the Ranch at Laguna Beach so I gave them a try on a last minute mini vacation. Holy cow - what a difference! They are not quite done yet - that was made clear when I called in - I... More

The Ranch at Laguna Beach is a Jewel! We felt like we were invited into someone's beautiful home. We stayed in one of the two story rooms that slept six people comfortably! Upstairs had two private bedrooms, one with a king size and the other a queen size bed... And downstairs in the large living room there was a queen... More

Thank you for your kind feedback. We were honored to have your family as one of our first guests on property. We also love the 2 bedroom cottages and hoped they'd work well for families. You arrived at the perfect time as our pool and gym just opened a couple weeks ago. We hope to see you and your family... More

The new owners have done an amazing job of upgrading the grounds. The restaurant is simply delicious with a great view of the golf course. For a nice quaint get away, this is your place. We highly recommend the cinnamon bun (sharing!!!) and Chorizo Enchilada's are delicious... All the dishes looked very good!

We were going to drive up to LA to stay at the Mondrian for the weekend because our friends wanted to use our house for a party. I was dreading the drive after a long day of work so we changed our plans, and decided to stay locally at The Ranch at Laguna. We are so glad we did! It... More

Aliso has potential, quiet and secluded if that is what you are looking for - if you want to be close to the action this is not your place . Wildlife around property very cool ! They need a shuttle to take you to grocery store up the road . The rooms have kitchenettes which is great ! They also... More

Stayed at Aliso Creek Inn recently for 4 nights as our house was renovated. Perfect location just a stroll to the beach. Really nice full kitchens with utensils, large closets with generous storage space. We especially appreciated TV and DVD players in living room and bedroom as well. The patios are enclosed and private with access to the pool and... More

This is an old resort dating back to the 60's...and it hasn't been updated since. It is in great need of a good fire, or a major rehab. However, if you are in need of a place to stay that is spacious and is reasonably clean, this is a good start. We stayed in what was probably once a two... More

Thank you for staying with us and also for taking the time to post a review on TripAdvisor! Your observation is absolutely correct. In 1963, the resort was originally designed and built as apartment and condominium units before being converted into a nightly hotel room rental operation. The property was recently purchased and the new ownership group is planning on... More
