We spent one night here 04/29/13 the location is good, the room clean #213 had a veiw of the ocean over PCH. Fill in night staff great welcoming and gave us a bogo coupon to a nice Italian restaurant. The manager wouldn't honor the yelp $10 coupon for checking in. Said his accountant had cancel that??? It was still there, should have just honored it.

Sorry, I was away for a few days, and appreciate all your comments.
Yelp is usually my call...
I have protective & fine staff, if unsure - stick with regular pricing; which is always reasonable
any day for Laguna Beach.
Thank you for your kind words & your business.

A gigantic thank you to Robert and the rest of the Art Hotel staff! The day before we were set to arrive, we were forced to cancel our trip due to an injury caused by a bicycle/car accident. Not only was the staff very sweet about us having to cancel at the last minute, but Robert also called the next day to let us know we would not be charged and to see how we were doing. Such a kind gesture! We're already looking forward to rescheduling and to say.ing thanks in-person.

If you travel to Laguna Beach to enjoy the beach, town and local vibe, this is the best deal in town!! Free, covered parking, a small pool with awesome pool and outside furniture and a healthy breakfast cannot be had for the price in Orange County!! My daughter and I walked to a most beautiful beach with awesome tide pools!! It took us less than 5 minutes to drive into the downtown area..if one had bikes, no car needed. With a 10 year old, a car was required!! Staff was very friendly. HIghly recommend. The owner was very nice and personable which was an added bonus!!

Robert (owner?) at the front desk was very nice and willing to provide all the info I needed (as I'm Italian, food related of course): we also had a short and interesting talk about living in California. The room was huge and comfy and the bed had the biggest amount of pillows I've ever seen. Very safe underground parking lot. The hotel is only 2 minutes walking to Crescent Bay Point, probably the best "secret" spot in Laguna Beach.

We found the Art Hotel on line, and our relatives in the area confirmed it would be great. The location is so handy, with free covered parking right there. The owner and staff helped us find our way around and keep the place very clean & tidy. We were able to stay two nights, do our laundry and relax. For the price it is amazingly comfortable and so cute. Will definitely tell our traveling friends about it.

Room Tip: We had a room with a little balcony and could see the coast somewhat.

I explored many hotels before booking at Art Hotel. It was the best value for the price. The rooms were large and typical hotel rooms. Location is good and a walk across the street into the neighborhood finds you at a lovely look out over the beach. Gail, the manager, is most helpful with any of your needs. Would stay again.

Well I must say its a beautiful place to stay at! We stayed in room number 213, beautiful room great views of the ocean. Clean rooms no noise issue. Our room was next to the jacuzzi so that was a plus point. We used it a couple of times.
The owner Gail was really nice and helpful. She told us about the places to see and eat at. Also the other guy there Robert was really friendly and helpful.
The fact that the hotel is only a mile away from the downtown is a plus point.
Right opposite to the hotel is a vista point with some gorgeous views of the ocean. You can even hear the seals there up on the rocks in the ocean sun bathing :)
We would spend time at the beach then come to the hotel relax and freshen up and go back to see the night life in laguna downtown
The rooms are nice and cosy, beds are comfortable.
Overall a very good experience !!!!
