Very attractive, looking down into a pool from two sides along with the abundance of flowering vines and bushes. A block from the beach. Large Italian resturant below at end of pool. Onsite parking, a strong plus for a site in a busy beach town such as beautiful Laguna Beach, California. We have stayed at this location once a year... More

I stayed at Holiday Inn, Laguna Beach for the first time a few weeks ago. The hotel was beautifully decorated and right next to the beach. The staff was helpful and the room was clean and in great shape. In general, all my expectations got fully fulfilled and I have no bad comments at all!

My sister & I live in different states and met in Laguna Beach to celebrate our birthdays. Our stay at this hotel was a delightful surprise. It is so unique one would never guess they were in a Holiday Inn if the signage didn't say you are. It is beautifully landscaped, clean, the room was very well thought out, every... More

You can't beat the price and location to downtown Laguna Beach. I chose Holiday Inn for the price. I wasn't going to have time to use amenities, it was literally just for a shower and sleep. I found it on Travelocity. Turns out I got a better price at the Hotel. So a refund is coming for the difference from... More

A good place to stay, with a beautiful courtyard, and only 1 block from the beach. Close to restaurants, too. Right across the street is a Ralph's if you need snacks, beverages or drugstore items. Our favorite places to eat were Orange Inn for breakfast (across the street), and Nick's (a couple of blocks down the street). We had extremely... More

What this hotel was thinking when they built rooms around a loud restaurant patio is beyond me. They definitely didn't care about anyone returning. 11 pm and people still yelling and screaming. Even with a.c. cranked couldn't drown out the noise.

Whether you like this depends on what you're looking for. We found it to be an adorable place with an interior courtyard right out of Europe. You'd never know it was a Holiday Inn. It seems to run like a private inn, with outstanding personalized service. Many guests there were clearly regulars who love it there. It felt like a... More
