The staff (Noemi Nasim) was so friendly & accommodating as we arrived late out of desperation when our room @ Hotel Casa Del Camino was not to our standards. The courtyard was really pretty & the italian restaurant was actually amazing!! We are planning to visit Laguna Beach again & will definitely stay at Holiday Inn. Thanks to the staff... More

I had a wonderful experience at this hotel, it is small and quiet which is nice and just across the road from the beach. It is also in a brilliant location for restaurants and shops which are just down the road! Staff on the front desk were really friendly and they let us check into our room 2 hours early.... More

Decent room close to the beach. You're paying for location! It's not your normal Holiday Inn as it is quaint- like Laguna itself. $15 for parking seems like a lot, but all parking here is expensive. Room was ready 1 hour before check-in and was maintained nicely. Comfy beds.

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.
