I stayed two nights there at the end of my holidays in California. The rooms are on the small side and are quite dated. The insulation is poor and the bathroom very basic. I did not eat there so cannot comment on the food. The hotel courtyard is very pretty with exotic plants around the pool and the building has... More

I've stayed here twice. Nice rooms, quaint hotel, pool in the centre courtyard, great Italian restaurant attached. It's a small little hotel, slightly dated but very nice and also clean. Staff are great. 5 minute walk to the beach, park, shops and restaurants. Big parking lot attached. The hotel just doesn't have a view of the water or beach etc.

I had noticed this hotel in the past and decided to try it as the location is ideally situated in Laguna Beach. We were warmly welcomed by the manager Karen who made us feel at home and offered many suggestions for dining. The room was small but clean despite the hotel being a little "dated". It had a nice pool... More

Convenient to main street, Coast Highway, and a short walk to access the beach. Nice pool in central courtyard and convenient parking with a fee. Staff are pleasant and helpful. Great spot for breakfast across the road.
