“Best thing is close to excellent beaches”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

The rooms a little dated and its about a 10 minute drive south from the main laguna beach centre and nothing much in terms of restaurants within walking distance. Heated small pool. Just over the main highway is a very nice walk down to the beach which is very well looked after, just 5 mins from hotel.

Thank you for taking the time to post your feedback regarding your recent visit. We are happy to know that you enjoyed our location. We do have several restaurants within walking distance; La Sirena, Starfish, and O Fine Japanese Cuisine are all within a 5 minute walk of us. The beaches just across the road are regarded as some of Laguna's most beautiful beaches so we are pleased you were able to experience them. Thank you for staying with us and we look forward to seeing you again soon!!

Sincerely,
Christopher Wylie

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

This used to be the Laguna Reef Inn. They cut back a lot of the greenery and maybe dabbed a little paint but otherwise it has not changed much. This motel is just off the coast highway near a small shopping center. It is across the street from the Montage so the location is pretty good. The lobby is clean bright, stark. The staff semi friendly. The walkway to the second floor room shows the age of the hotel with broken or cracked steps and an undulating sidewalk from multiple layers of concrete. Don't get me wrong. It is safe and quirky. The room is a large King bed, through the wall air, ancient TV in a wicker cabinet, nice microwave and small fridge int heir own area and a small but tidy bathroom. The carpet is clean save a few spots. The bed is clean with velour blankets but lots of pillows. The shower is a bit cramped but workable with nice pressure. The TV is aweful. Fuzzy and very poor reception. But then we came for the beach not TV and the beach is just steps away.

I like this place. It is not the Hyatt and not for everyone. It is big and roomy and clean with a comfortable bed. Go for it.

Room Tip: The front room have a view but get the sun and are hot in the afternoon

This place is clean and upgraded with a beautiful view of the ocean from the patio/pool area. It has been updated very tastefully, with lots of character. Personnel were friendly and helpful during the day - HOWEVER - the Sunday night we stayed there were some loud, noisy revelers outside their rooms but inside the courtyard area, from approximately 11:30 pm until 4:30 am. The night DESK MANAGER NEVER DID ANYTHING ABOUT IT. He should have called the police, at least. we talked with other guests across the courtyard in the morning and theywere kept awake during the night with doors slamming. It is unthinkable that a manager would let this sort of thing happen. It is an other wise nice place.

Thank you for taking the time to review your experience here with us. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed your accommodations while staying with us. Furthermore, on behalf of all of the staff here I do want to apologize that you were not able to get a restful night of sleep due to other guest's actions. It is inexcusable that this was not dealt with and I will follow up with staff to use this as a training opportunity to prevent this from happening in the future. Thank you again for providing your very valuable feedback and we look forward to seeing you again soon!

Christopher Wylie
