We stayed at the Holiday Inn this past weekend again and have to say that it is by far the best value in Laguna Beach. The location is incredible. You can walk to the beach right across the street from the hotel. The parking lot has wide parking spaces to make it easy to park, remove your bags and avoid... More

We stumbled across this hotel and were so glad we did. It was cute, clean and in a great location (right across the street from the beach and very close to great restaurants)! We will definitely be back!

We arrived at 9 pm, all the fairy lightings around the courtyard palm trees and iron railings plus the pool lights made the place seem almost like a dream castle wedding venue. Then the next day we woke up. This is a pretty motel, nothing to write home about for the price. Expensive parking, no complimentary breakfast, but thanks for... More

This is a charming property right on the main drag, a short walk to the beach and very conveniently located just a few blocks from the highway leading inland (CA 133, Laguna Canyon Road), connecting to the main north-south routes (CA 73 and I-5), and just a 30-minute drive to Orange County airport. We were looking for a place to... More

We love that this Holiday Inn is so close to everything. Cleo Street Beach is right across the street. We'd have breakfast most mornings at the Orange Inn and then take our coffee to go and walk down the steps to the beach. The hotel also has complimentary coffee, lemonade, bottled water, and sodas in the lobby area, which was... More

Nice location in Laguna, near beach and town. Staff was excellent: friendly and courteous. The facilities were just fair for the price. By the way, the parking up back is a substantial extra charge. The parking was very tight. The room was on the small side. Wall paper was peeling on the corner adjacent to the bathroom. The carpet has... More

I've seen this place many times when in Laguna Beach for the day. The hotel looks so tropical and welcoming, I made a note to stay here sometime in the future.

Came here for business, but brought my dad and my dog along. The room I got was kind of dark, with window facing half the central courtyard, and half the corridor leading to the back entrance. On the other side, was quiet, and my dog didn't get too riled up with outside noises. Location is convenient, and many good restaurants,... More

This hotel is in the heart of Laguna and though an older hotel as most are here it was spotless and well care for. The furniture is classic and timeless. I did hit the edge of the bed with the hotel door so it is not a room for more than 2 or 3 people. I think 4 would be... More
