The hotel helped me get the same rate and room after a mix-up on the dates. Much appreciated. It is in a great location. We could walk anywhere we wanted to go. The restaurant in the hotel was excellent.

Our family needed a temporary place to stay at the last minute, due to a home repair. Living in Laguna we had passed this hotel many times from the outside but had never actually been inside. I cannot say enough good things about this charming hotel. From the moment we entered the staff could not have been friendlier. My children... More

I was pleasantly surprised by the Holiday Inn in Laguna. Really lovely, clean room and although we arrived at 11 am for a 3 pm check-in, we were able to get our room and then stay late the next day. That's pretty unusual. Lovely property. Rates lower than some of the pricy hotels in Laguna Beach. I'd definitely go back.

When an ocean-view room within our budget was not available at the dates we wanted to travel, we gave the Holiday Inn a try, based on its location a short walk to the Main Beach and downtown Laguna. We were assigned a room on the lower floor at pool level; children were playing in the pool when we arrived and... More

Just checking out of the Holiday Inn Laguna Beach. Very friendly staff, cute hotel, awesome courtyard/pool. Directly on PCH with a free shuttle stop outside and a Ralph's across the street. Shops, restaurants and beaches are all within walking distance. I would highly recommend and will be returning in the future.

I stayed at the Holiday Inn in Laguna Beach over the July 4th weekend. My family stayed in two other rooms. The hotel is located on PCH, about 3 blocks from the main downtown area and across the street from the beach. The outside of the hotel looks inviting.

We just got back from Laguna where we spent 2 weeks at the Holiday Inn Express. We stayed in a suite for the first week and then we moved to a King bed room for the second week.
