Nice hotel. Great location. Walking distance to everything. Clean rooms with comfortable beds and nice bedding. Great shower but the water pressure could have been better. Beautiful courtyard and pool area. Nice lobby. Free popcorn, soda, coffee and bottled water in the lobby were a nice touch. Hotel staff was very friendly. Prices were high for what it was but...

This was our third year spending our hard earned iHG reward points on holiday at this hotel and we still feel the same about it. The hotel has much more character than the usual Holiday Inn and the restful, beautiful planting surrounding the pool (which is a perfectly reasonable size for a cool dip on a hot day) really makes...

My boyfriend and I were planning on staying in Laguna for only one night but decided to stay another night and were forced to find another hotel. We came across the Holiday Inn and decided to stay here because of the price (compared to nearby hotels this is definitely on the more reasonably priced side). We were not expecting much... More

The hotel courtyard has a nice tropical look about it. The beach is very close, downtown is close enough to walk at 1/2 mile, and is also accessible by trolley. There is a grocery store right across the street and a fridge in the room. There were a few rooms in the hotel that were directly under the walkway for... More

Almost everything is terrific about this hotel, except for the in-window air conditioning. It was noisy and both of us had a bad night of sleep. To be fair we wanted to get on the road around 5 am so we might have been hyper sensitive. Other then that we really enjoyed this hotel and recommend it. We were pleasantly... More

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
