My family of 5 (3 young kids) stayed here for a weekend. We live in Southern California and Laguna Beach is one of my favorite beach towns. Everything is within walking distance and it has such a great vibe. Laguna Riviera is right in the heart of everything and it is on a nice beach. I think for the price, you cannot do much better.
We stayed in room 505 and it was very large. We had a full kitchen as well as a bedroom with a queen bed and a queen murphy bed in the living room. They gave us a crib to use for our toddler. The beds were really comfortable. They list 505 as having a "private" patio but I think that is a stretch. It was fine but it was really a shared patio with separate space for the 3 rooms off that area. We used it for breakfast and sat out there in the evening as well.
The pool was fun for the kids and they have a little game room off to the side and that was fun (ping pong, air hockey, ect). The pool was a good temperature and the hot tub was nice (especially because it was unseasonably cool during our stay). We enjoyed the beach and the hotel gives you chairs, umbrella and towels to use.
There are a lot of great restaurants within walking distance and if you want to go a little further Laguna has a free trolley that goes up and down Coast Hwy. We ate breakfast at the hotel and the muffins they provide are good. The coffee was also good and my kids liked all the cereal choices.
I guess my only "complaint" about this hotel is the lack of service. We really got no explanation of anything and felt like we were on our own to figure things out. At check in, we were handed the keys and that's it. It was more of a "motel" type experience in that regard. Having said that, we would like to stay here again next summer because the value and location are really great. I don't know if I would recommend it in the summer for people without kids. There were lots of kids (which was great for ours) but I imagine when school starts then it is much quieter.
