The Holiday Inn at Laguna Beach is right in the center of town. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable. I love the courtyard, with the pool and flowers, its perfectly relaxing. However, customer service was pretty rude when we had asked to switch rooms. You wouldn't expect this in Laguna, but there are plenty of other hotels where they... More

The location is perfect. It is across he street from the beach access but be aware there are over 60 stairs down. The lush pool area is well maintained with large trees and plants. Every part of the hotel shows attention to detail with ferns on the balconies, awnings on the windows, beautiful iron work on gates. The floors are... More

My coworker and I came to CA for business last week. It was a nice , quiet respite to "come home" to. The room was very clean, the staff always friendly, and the grounds are beautifully kept. I never write reviews but the staff was so helpful and attentive, I just knew I had to let others know. They also... More

While on vacation from Ohio, my wife and I stayed at the Holiday inn at 696 S Coast Highway, Laguna Beach, California for two days. The facility was old, but very well maintained, and it was a short walk to the beach and many fine restaurants. We were lucky enough to be upgraded to a suite, which offered a large... More

We were very happy with the location of the hotel, the rooms were clean but lacked a bit of light as they are all facing into the terrace area. The pool was small but enough if you just wanted to have a quick dip to cool down. Staff were pleasant and helpful and they also have discount cards for some... More

What a great value in the heart of Laguna Beach. We initially weren't too pleased with having to stay at a Holiday Inn, however, this is definitely the cutest Holiday Inn I've ever seen. The rooms are pretty spacious, clean, and there is a pool in the center of the hotel which was a nice resource to have. (Especially with... More

Coming back to Laguna for an overnight stay, I was worried that the Holiday Inn would be too noisy - right on the corner of PCH, opposite Ralph's supermarket, a terrace restaurant right in the middle of the small hotel courtyard - it wasn't. Everything was just fine. Extremely helpful staff, who carried my luggage from the car park in... More
