I have absolutely no complaints about this hotel. The rooms were comfortable with a refrigerator and coffee service. The pool area and grounds are pretty with many flowers. The hotel staff is friendly and helpful. Right across the street is Ralph's grocery store so if you need anything it is very convenient. The shuttle is on the same block so... More

We loved our overnight here! The staff was very friendly and helpful and the flowers and plants make this property look amazing, We had a short delay at checkin, but the kids enjoyed the free fresh popcorn in the lobby while we waited.

Very friendly, helpful and efficient front desk service with complimentary water, coffee and sodas. The pool area is well vegetated and has a European charm, unexpected in a Holiday Inn. Great location with very easy access to the beach and town. Room was comfortable but the only negative was an odor in the lower level bedroom (maybe from a pet)... More

I really enjoyed our stay at the Holiday Inn Laguna Beach. We went for one night as a mini-vacay, and it definitely met, and in some ways exceeded our expectations. I particularly liked the tropical vibe in the courtyard where the pool is, as well as the location a very short block and beautiful steep staircase to the beach, while... More

Ok. This hotel was recommended to me by a friend who had stayed here a couple times. She gave it rave reviews. Well I have never been to Laguna Beach and would love to return but I doubt I will be staying here again. First off, on the website it states that "Kids Eat Free". It also states that they... More

The hotel looks even better than on the pictures provided. The architectural style and the lush gardens inside make you feel like you're at a Mexican hacienda, not in a Holiday Inn. From the outset, staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel offers soft-drinks in cans, other refreshments, coffee and popcorn all for free to grab in the lobby,... More

Room was comfortable and ample for our needs, a good size fridge in the room for beers etc. As with many hotels in the US there is no in-room safety deposit box but reception do have one where you can...
