Overall a nice hotel, with jacuzzi's in the spacious rooms. A bit too far to walk downtown, bur there are some restaurants nearby. Very close to the beach. Breakfast is basic and everything comes wrapped in plastic, but this is common to all BW properties in the US.

Thank you for your comments regarding your recent stay at the BEST WESTERN PLUS Laguna Brisas Spa Hotel. Yes! The beach access is right across the street. Thank you for your mention, too, of the surrounding restaurants (and eclectic shops and art galleries).

Things to know: Laguna Beach is a top resort location, the beach is one of the best in California, the hotel is on the east side of the coast highway which means you'll have to go to the deck on the 4th floor to see the ocean, its a short walk to the beach from the hotel, and most importantly,...

We had a 3rd floor room with a partial ocean view, which was as good as it gets due to the road and other hotels being between us and the sea. However, we could see the ocean and waves breaking, so no complaints. the hotel is about 1.5 miles out from the centre of Laguna beach, which is a nice... More

It sounds like yuo may have been in one of the rooms 301-304. This is the ONLY section of rooms (4 rooms total) with a connecting balcony. The... More

Average hotel in a great location. In general, I guess Laguna Beach is expensive, if you can secure a discounted rate - do so. I attended a wedding and spent a considerable amount of time across the street and at various restaurants and bars. If you are looking for amenities, this is not the hotel but it definitely has LOCATION... More

The hotel is situated near a busy road and has no view of the beach. There is a private garage for the car. The lay-out of the hotel is rather strange: the lobby is in the cellar and rooms have only small windows towards a small open corridor. As a result there is a lot of noise from the neighbours,...

The Best Western was a decent place to stay. I was a little dissappointed in quality, but just because I'm used to newer hotels. The rooms felt clean, the jet tub was lovely, and the staff was nice. The hotel is in a great location and right across the street from the beach. It was fantastic with an 8 month... More

Thank you for staying with us! The beach access is especially nice as there is a walkway with no stairs leading you right to the beach. Unless you are at busy Main Beach, all other beach access requires use of stairs which can be a challenge for strollers. Thanks again! More

We stayed here due to its location, which is right on PCH. The hotel has an undercover parking which is convenient and the staff was helpful. We booked a deluxe queen room (which was on the 2nd floor) and it was very spacious with a spa bath in the bedroom, with a balcony and great view. However, it is right... More

I had to book this hotel at the last minute. The place looked inviting from the outside and it caught our eye from the beginning. However the intrigue was soon over.
