“Ran from this one fast!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2006

We almost booked this one online but I had an intuition to actually wait until we got there first. I'm glad we did! They showed us the available rooms and it was like a budget motel. First of all the smell was unbearable - even my 6 year old asked what the weird smell was. Also the rooms were very outdated, the beds flat and hard as a rock and I wouldn't trust the linens to be very clean. The location was probably good but I would recommend staying at a fresh clean hotel and going to the beach each day by car or walking. This place is a dive.

My family didn't even end up staying at Vacation Village after we found out they took $245 off our Visa before we even got there, and without any notice.

, Co- Owner at Pacific Edge on Laguna Beach, a Joie de Vivre Hotel, responded to this review, May 3, 2006
Vacation Village Hotel has a policy of a first night prepayment in order to secure a reservation. This is the protocol / standard for ALL hotels worldwide. This person made a reservation and gave us their visa, of course the deposit was taken at that time their reservation was made; prior to their arrival at the hotel. This person stated they did not stay at Vacation Village. at the time they cancelled their reservation, they recieved a credit to their charge card.
