Ok. This hotel was recommended to me by a friend who had stayed here a couple times. She gave it rave reviews. Well I have never been to Laguna Beach and would love to return but I doubt I will be staying here again. First off, on the website it states that "Kids Eat Free". It also states that they... More

The hotel looks even better than on the pictures provided. The architectural style and the lush gardens inside make you feel like you're at a Mexican hacienda, not in a Holiday Inn. From the outset, staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel offers soft-drinks in cans, other refreshments, coffee and popcorn all for free to grab in the lobby,... More

It was super easy to find, although hard to pull into short term spot to get inside for check in. Parking lot seemed safe as did hotel. The courtyard style was nice.

Very easy to find as it's on the PCH and it's only a 10-15min walk into the centre of town. Room was comfortable and ample for our needs, a good size fridge in the room for beers etc. As with many hotels in the US there is no in-room safety deposit box but reception do have one where you can...

Well worth a visit. A great location & you are guaranteed a warm Welcome. Easy walking distance to beach & restaurants. Plenty of parking. Breakfast served just over the road - simply awesome. I'd visit again. Hot coffee served complimentary - from 5am :-)

My wife and I were staying in San Diego and decided to visit a friend in Laguna over memorial weekend. We were lucky to find a room here and enjoyed our one night stay. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. The staff was friendly and the parking was convenient. I would revisit this place.

We stay annually at the location. You cannot beat the value, the location and the very nice staff. They offer free soft drinks and water as well as fresh popcorn. One major suggestion, do not stay in any second floor room under the suites on the 3rd floor. We heard clumping elephant like foot steps all night. Sounded kind of... More

Then stay here. Our room just felt moist. Even with a/c on the room had that mildewy moldy smell. Asked for a new room and it was the same exact thing. Had a hard time trying to sleep because of the underlying smell but there was nothing that could have been done. They trick you in lobby with that white... More

This hotel is within walking distance to many of the shops, galleries and of course the beach. We got a good deal on Expedia but heard the prices go up to 300$ and more in high season. Ouch! The staff is friendly and they offer newspaper, coffee, tea, waters and soda for free. Rooms are clean but a bit dated... More
