“14 West is a good value in Laguna”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

14 West is a boutique style hotel. The room we had was small but comfortable. It is right across PCH from the beach at Cleo Street. It is within walking distance of everything you need - food, bars, groceries, beach, shopping, downtown Laguna. We parked our car in the garage and left it there. We ate out for all our meals, but others used the gas grill on the deck to cook dinner. Good option if you are staying for more than few days.

We (mom, dad, a 19-year-old and a 17-year old) stayed here four nights for a combined wedding/college visit trip. I booked this hotel because it was within walking distance of the beach and the shops/art galleries. Little did I know how much MORE it had to offer. In addition to its terrific location ( five minutes to the beach, restaurants, galleries), the rooms are large, sleek, and comfortable. Service is minimal but very friendly and comfortably casual. Each room has its own comfortable outdoor sitting area. But best of all is the intimate outdoor common area. There is a grill, a large dining table, a hot tub, and a number of large, cushy chaise lounges. Every night we relaxed under the gas heaters, and one night we grilled fish for a late-night dinner. If super luxury and high-end service is your goal, don't stay here. But if comfort, location, and feeling like you are a hip Californian for a couple of days are your goals, stay here.

Room Tip: There is street noise when you are outside at the hotel. Consider avoiding rooms 8.9, 7, 6 which are...

We stayed here 3 nights in May and this was the first time we had a large walk in closet, outdoor kitchen complete with a spa and a delightful African decor room with a four poster tree inspired bed and a gas fireplace. The unit also had a kitchen and was very clean. The hotel was within walking distance of Ralph's, a unique grocery store, as well as the beach and several restaurants. Loved Lauguna Beach and our "home away from home". Valerie Sawicke

Room Tip: The African room had skylights and a unique decor...ask for this one.

Living in Los Angeles, my girlfriend and I decided to get away from the city for a night to celebrate our one year anniversary in the small town of Laguna Beach. We arrived late at around 9:00pm, reception was closed, but the manager had texted me instructions on how to get into the room. They had locked the key for us with a coded padlock on the door.

The room was beautiful. We particularly chose this hotel because of the little kitchenette so I could cook some pasta. The bed was a Tempur-pedic, which felt wonderful. Everything was very modern and the fireplace really added to the romance of the room. We also got to use the hot tub at night, which was very clean. We also really liked all the mood lighting in the room. The bathroom and shower was large, modern and clean.

I loved everything about my stay this place. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a quick getaway.

We recently stayed two nights at 14west and were extremely pleased.

The rooms were very nice, spacious, clean and quiet. They have a kitchenette with fridge/freezer, microwave and stovetop which is nice if you want to save a bit and cook in the room. Tip, bring your own coffee, they have a coffee maker but do not provide coffee. The hotel has a great common area outside with lounge chairs, a BBQ and hottub, the perfect place to relax and unwind. The only nuisance we encountered was the room " refresh." They don't clean the rooms daily like most hotels but instead tidy up. They didn't leave new towels, new soaps or replenish the shampoo. Not a huge deal, but a hassle if you discover your out of something and the office is already closed.

The location is perfect. Right across the street is access to the beach and all shops and restaurants are within walking distance.

Overall this was a great place to stay. We would recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet , quaint, chic hotel away from the party scene in Laguna Beach.

We stayed here for 2 nights last December just prior to Christmas and had a fantastic time. It was during a 3 week stay in CA and so the more independent style was actually a welcome break from the larger hotels with concierges etc. in our other stopover spots. The room was immaculate and the location was brilliant. The price for the stay (and the parking!) was highly competitive and we took advantage of the fact that it's walking distance to everything Laguna Beach has to offer. We had a brilliant stay and so we've booked to go back again this December on our annual trip to SoCal.

Room Tip: They all look great!

This is a great place and the location could not be better. My husband surprised me with a three day stay down in Laguna for my birthday and this is the place he reserved. It has a HUGE room, walk in closet, and full kitchen. We were in room 14 (there are only 14 total) and it was fun because the jacuzzi was literally outside our door and we were the only ones ever in it. The studios all open up to a center court yard where there are very nice lounge chairs topped with cushions and lots of umbrellas. They also provide a table and chairs along with a full size built in BBQ for grilling if you don't feel like eating out. We bought all our own breakfast food and ate out lunches and dinner because everything is walking distance. We went to the movies one night and walked back late at night. No problems what so ever. We took our two daughters with us (9 & 13) and they loved walking right across the street to the beach. 14 West even provides the beach chairs. We will be back.

Room Tip: I think the two studios on the street had balconies but we liked being tucked in the back. The stree...
