“This is not a hotel, it's an experience!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

My husband and I spent 3 wonderful nights here. It is unique in every way, so it cannot be called a hotel. The decor inside and out is modern and comfortable. The service was top notch from the confirmation (more like information) email, the warm greeting upon arrival to the availability of the staff. The staff is definitely there to help make your stay perfect! The room (#12) was beautiful. The bed was very comfortable! It was nice to have a kitchen for breakfast in bed.
We loved the location of 14 West. It is close to the beach, grocery store and MANY shops.
We will definitely be back!

We stayed at 14 West Boutique Hotel for New Years Eve. The booking was extremely helpful and easy due to fast correspondence of the hotel manager through email. She replied in quick and helpful manner in all my questions.
The parking was plenty and safe with the gated garage accessible through password.

The rooms are upstairs from garage where there's grill and patio available in first come first serve manner. The each room tends to be unique and have its own theme. The room we stayed was gorgeous with lounge-y sofa and table with pull down bed from the wall. All the furnitures and amenities were very clean and beautiful as if all were new.

There is Ralphs just next street in walkable distance if need water or quick snack during the stay. There is also private outside patio for each room I believe.
I would highly recommend others to stay at the one of a kind hotel for an easy getaway.

14 west is AMAZING we will not stay anywhere else in Laguna. This was our first time in laguna and by far the best place to stay. Its modern, hip, sophisticated, and quiet. Located right next to Ralph's for groceries as the rooms have kitchenettes. The beach is literally across the street. The price is much better than the hotels on the beach and much cleaner. There is even a hot tub and bbq grills right outside the rooms, parking is a piece of cake because you get your own spot in the garage and can walk to all restaurants and shopping. I brought my husband here to surprise him with some friends for his 30th birthday. Carolyn from 14west went out of her way to post happy birthday signs in the room, included balloons, champaign, and a cupcake. I didn't even request these things to be done she just offered. She went above and beyond for us and we appreciated everything, thanks again 14 west for making our stay special we definitely will stay here again!

Thank you 14 West for your warm hospitality and friendliness during our stay.

Your property provided a very unique experience with many hidden pleasures. The hot tub in its private, cozy setting is exquisite during sunset and provides tranquility after an active day on the beach. We appreciate all the beach toys, chairs and towels you provide to your guests!

Our room was equipped with modern conveniences with comforts of home and more. The fireplace, not only beautiful to look at, created a warm, inviting atmosphere.

So thank you again, my beloved 14 West, for making our "escape" an unforgettable experience and giving us memories to last a lifetime! T & D

This is a self-catering studio place in our "old town" Laguna Beach. For our nostalgia trip back to the place where we use to live 8 years ago, we chose 14 West.
The location is perfect - in the Village, close to great beaches, restaurants and stores. Having a supervised garage spot in one of the few places in California where you can actually leave your car and walk to everything is a great plus!
The studio was clean and well-equipped, the bed was great for the adults and the futon was big enough for our 6 and 8 year old to share. In all fairness, the studio design is more cool than "practical". There are small details which a frequent traveler's eye would spot react to. We have give our feedback to the staff and they seemed genuinely interested to take it in consideration. Which brings us to the staff: Carolyn and Eva were fantastic! Helpful, kind, charming and service-minded to the point were they drove for 30 miles in the middle fo dinner-time on a Satudary to let us in into our studio, when our 6 year old accidentaly locked us out! The whole 12 day stay at 14 West has been great and we recommend this place warmly.

My husband and I were looking for a place to stay for one night for our anniversary, and 14 West was the perfect choice. The location is killer (across the street from the beach), the rooms are unique and lovely, and they provide paraben-free natural bath products. If you're looking for a unique vacation spot that will feel like a home away from home, 14 West is a great choice.

We really loved this place. It was elegant, private, clean, perfectly located with nice touches and a very comfortable bed. We walked to great restaurants, downtown, and lovely beaches. We look forward to returning soon!

Room Tip: All rooms are very quiet except the two with balconies over pch.
