Our room was below the sidewalk, musty, dark and not very clean. It was very noisy with PCH noise. The breakfast is very generic. Our room did not look like any of the pictures shown on the web. When we asked to see another room, we were told they were full and could not show rooms that had not been... More

Stayed for one night in a 2 Queen, Whirlpool Suite. Spacious, well appointed room. Whirlpool in the main room is a beautiful touch and very spacious for 2 to enjoy, a small pack of bath salts included was a nice touch. These rooms face the side street (off the PCH) which is a little quieter. The ocean view is literally... More

Unable to sleep due to the loud noise level from the room air conditioner (no central air) which did not have a thermostat. We had to keep changing the settings (too cold or too hot) AND the street noise. Also, I did not feel the bathroom was up to the rating standard: no magnifying mirror, poor lighting. Overall, the 3.5... More

The hotel is located across the street from the the other hotels that overlook the ocean. The "sea view" is what you get where you can "see" between the buildings across the street. The "sea view" rooms also overlook the busy street below with the sound of traffic all night. The free trolly system is great though. Pick up and... More

Thank you for your comments. We are across the street from the ocean so the view is limited. There is a nice sundeck area on the 4th floor from which there is a better view. We will continue to work on our shortcomings and strive for perfection.. Best regards. Jose Berumen General Manager generalmanager@lagunabrisas.com More

My stay was comfortable and just a few minutes walk to the beach. The ocean views on the upper patio were amazing. The staff was very helpful. Art galleries were close by and transportation was convenient as the hotel is located close to the Laguna Shuttle stop. I look forward to future visits.

Wonderful hotel with modern amenities and upgrades. Had a balcony with a view of the ocean, comfortable bed, nice big counter in the bathroom, big TV, underground free parking, in room jacuzzi! The breakfast was spectacular with waffles, eggs, potatoes, sausages, yogurt, fruit and more. Staff was very friendly and helpful :)

I was pleasantly surprised that the feel here was not of your typical stale chain hotel. The staff was very nice and helpful. Having breakfast available got us out onto the beach earlier. having CNN blasting all the worlds problems into the breakfast area was not pleasant. I also would have gladly traded the jacuzzi tub for a room safe... More

I stayed here for two nights for my friend's wedding in Laguna Beach. The bonus was that it was close to the Montage where all the wedding activities took place. That was pretty much the only plus side. I came early to see if I could drop my bags at the front desk because I had to meet the bride... More

Booked a room from a block that was set aside for a wedding. The booking experience was easy and accommodating, but the overall experience fell short of our expectations. The room was very small, had to move the desk to access the air conditioner and allow for proper air flow, and the beds were very uncomfortable.
