“Cute Hotel in Laguna”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

The hotel location was easy to find, right along PCH, however the hotel was a a mile away from the main downtown of Laguna. But, plenty of parking and the location is still close to other shops in the Laguna area.

Service, everyone was really nice and they even gave us a gorgeous room with a view of the ocean! The rooms are clean and our room had a jazcuzzi!

They do offer a daily breakfast buffet, but we never got to taste the food but free is free.

Overall, very satisfied and no complaints with our stay at Best Western Laguna.

Thank yuo for staying with us at the BEST WESTERN PLUS Laguna Brisas Spa Hotel. Your comments are appreciated! Yes, we are about one mile south of the main "hustle and bustle" of the downtown/Main Beach area. Many visitors do not realize there are several different "atmospheres" to discover within our little beach town. Our location can provide a more relaxed and less "touristy" feeling but is still surrounded by the many art galleries, restaurants and small shops for which Laguna beach is so famous. If you are seeking a bit more people activity, a stroll up the beach or walks can put you right in the middle of all of this action, but then you can escape back to the quieter comforts of your room. A quick soak in your in-room whirlpool spa will melt away any stress you might incur!

We stayed at the BW on the weekend of 11/11/12. This hotel was very nice on-line and it made it seem like all the rooms were so big and spacious. Ours was average. There was nothing to brag about. The only nice thing was the whirlpool tub but that was about it. Our room was located on the 4th level, we were told to take the elevators up to the forth floor but then we had to come down some stairs to go back up to our room. The layout of the rooms are not very good. Especially after a long trip where you just want to go and relax. It literally took us an additional 5 minutes just to figure out the room set-ups.

Thank you for your comments regarding your regarding your recent stay at our beautiful property. Yes, the room configerations and locations can be a bit quirky - very Laguna! Room prices are actually based on the amount of ocean view rather than the shape, size or location. We apologize for your challenge in finding your room but so glad you were finally able to relax as planned. Suggestion to all: When calling to make your reservation, please consider discussing with the reservationist any room details you might be expecting or requesting so we might best accommodate you. Thanks again!

We visited for one night in nov. our trip was not beach focused but rather touring and seeing the sights. This was a good place for that. Location was On the main road. The room was spacious and we were upgraded when we arrived. The bathroom was huge. Only concern would be for older folk getting in and out of the shower. Since the big tub doubled as a shower, it was not the easiest getting in and out. My only concern

Thank you for taking the time to post your comments and suggestions. There are actually TWO types of bathrooms; one with the step in tub/spa combination while others have a separate spa and bath tub allowing for easier access. If this is any concern, be sure and ask when making your reservations.. Thanks again and take care of yourselves in New York City!

Husband and I wanted a close to home romantic getaway on a Saturday night. Found the BW Laguna online and were so glad we did. Price a lot cheaper than other local hotels, but the room was absolutely wonderful. Jacuzzi tubs in every room, small refig, coffee maker, blow dryer. All the amenities I look for in a room. Great helpful staff at front counter and on the phone when we made our reservation. Room was also very clean. Will definitely stay here again. Check it out!

We had a nice stay here. The employees were helpful and friendly. The room, while nothing exceptional, was comfortable. The complimentary breakfast and free parking were a plus.

However, if you are of an age where arthritis is an issue, getting in and out of the shower in the large, raised spa tub could be challenging and perilous. We inquired at check-out and were told the only rooms with walk-in showers are the premium rooms and one room with only one queen size bed. If we stay here again, we'll be requesting one of those.

Room Tip: We liked our room on the third floor. It was convenient for the swimming pool and breakfast. Some...

Thank you for staying at the BEST WESTERN PLUS Laguna Brisas Spa Hotel! It is true that SOME of our Deluxe rooms have the combination spa tub/shower in the bath area, however the Deluxe rooms on the FRONT of the hotel on the 1st and 2nd floor actually have the spa tub SEPARATE in the bedroom area with a regular size tub with shower in the bathroom itself. You may want to request one of those next time. Premium rooms ALL have the separate spa tub. Addtionally, we do have accessible rooms as well that have a walk/roll in shower without the tub all together. We hope this helps!

Nice hotel. Not extravagant, but rooms were good size. I had a partial ocean view. A bit of street noice, but not bad. The only thing was that there was no fitness facility. Free breakfast everyday was nice. Overall, the hotel was nice.

My husband and I booked this hotel for an overnight get-away. We had a relaxing stay here. They have a really nice terrace with plenty of tables and chairs and lounge chairs with a view of the ocean. The pool was nice and refreshing. There is a short walk to the beach and the hotel provides towels, umbrellas and beach chairs. The in-room spa (very large) is an extra nice bonus. We had a nice corner room. Even though the hotel is on a very busy street, we didn't hear any traffic noise inside our room and were able to get an excellent night sleep. The breakfast was very nice with made-to-order waffles, scrambled eggs, fruit, pastries, cereals, and even my favorite Yoplait yougart. We will definately return here, but would like to stay two nights the next time we visit.
