“Excellent location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

Located within short walking distance of all shops and restaurants. Although located "oceanside" it is not what you think: you cannot walk out of your room, take 100 steps, and set up a chair. The beach is about 100 yards away, however. Comfortablle beds. Nice room set up, with mini bar and coffee maker. Clean modern bath. One major drawback is the absence of a bar on site, as well as the absence of poolside food or beverage service. Staff is very friendly. Quiet rooms: could not hear the neighbors. I do not think there was a fitness center: we were there for several days and did not see one.

This is a fairly old motel located just off the South Coast Highway. It's location makes it a handy stopping point if travelling the coast road from the Southern-most tip of California and is located across the road from the beautiful Laguna Beach. The convenience of being able to park close to your room should not be under-estimated!

Whilst the rooms and accommodation are beginning to show their age, the overall level of cleanliness and maintenance could not be faulted. Additionally, the staff and quality of customer service was excellent. The staff even very kindly offered to lend beach chairs and towels even after checking out, which is above and beyond what you'd expect and was greatly appreciated.

There is a small pool on site, but I didn't have the opportunity to try it out. Also, the outside seating areas offer a nice place to seat and see/hear the waves and at night they are adorned with candles which creates a charming atmosphere.

If you are looking for a great value place to stay with excellent customer service in a quaint, relaxed town, then this is the place for you!

Room Tip: Rooms are staggered up the side of the external staircase, so if you need a room on a lower-level, b...

We spent 3 nights here in February while tourning about that part of California. The room was small but nicely furnished. It came with a King size bed which took up most of the room (older hotel - room was probably designed for double bed). The furnishing were first rate, the room was clean, and had nice touches (spa level toiletries for instance). We were traveling with another couple and the inn has both a lounge and outdoor seating at tables that allowed us to socialize in the evenings without craming into the room. It was nicer on the inside than the initial impression from the outside.

We visited this resort for our 25th Anniversary. The room we stayed in faced out to the Ocean. There is no air conditioning but with the ceiling fan on and the ocean breeze, it's bearable. We slept with our patio door open each night. The sound of the waves crashing sounded nice but after the 2nd night, it was a little hard to sleep as the waves got bigger and louder. Overall it's a beautiful place. The beach is literally a walk down a few steps and you're there. The staff was great and very friendly. We ate breakfast in the dining area on the hotel grounds and it was delicious and surprisingly fairly priced. They even have a coffee shop that will make any kind of latte or mocha you want and breakfast finger foods. I didn't want to leave.

Room Tip: All the room patios face the ocean. Can't go wrong with any room you have.

Stayed here a few weeks back while in town for business. The staff was very accomidating, allowing me to leave my car for a few hours before checking in, and in general very efficient and pleasant.
The room was cozy, clean, the jacuzzi in the bathroom was a nice treat after traveling all morning and a working meeting. The "continental" breakfast was quite a bit more than the usual definition of that, a bigger selection of items than a donut and coffee. Nice touch.

If you're looking for a quaint non chain place to hang your hat for an evening or two, for a decent price, this is your place.

Such a great little place! Found this one while driving back from Dana Pont and jumped on it! About $100/nt for a nice little room that was very clean and well kept. Located a view away from the ocean and steps to the sand.
The Manager that was there Monday was great and although had just started there, you could tell he was happy to be there! Be sure to spend some time on the 2nd floor patio area! Awesome views!
This hit all the check marks on my Quaint Motel List!!! Private parking in front of the room!
The Wifi was flying there too!!!! And they didn't charge me a $15 "resort" fee
