“Small room big price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012

I stayed in room 425. Very small with even smaller balcony. Actually you really could not use the balcony it was so small but it looked cute. However, paying more than $300 a night is not cute. The room had just been refurbished and the view of the ocean was nice but not the best but ok. This really what you are paying for. Parking is $29.00 extra. There is a coffee maker in the room and the bed was comfortable. The staff was friendly. Overall very nice place and great location.

Stayed November 2012, traveled on business

Thank you for your comments we certainly appreciate them as we do our best to make sure our guests are happy. In June we completed a multi-million dollar renovation of the guest rooms, pool, pool deck and the fourth floor terrace; however, we did not get to much of the public space. I was thankful you commented on one of our best attributes which is location, nestled between Main Beach and Las Brisas with a short walk to the village. I am happy to hear you will be back please look me up on your next visit so I can give you a warm Laguna Beach welcome back.

Thank you
Peggy

Stayed in a room overlooking the bay and had a great time. The fact that we go mid-80s weather in November helped. Slightly dated rooms and facilities -- seemed like some areas were in need of a facelift (and no workout facility). But excellent location on the beach, near downtown, next to Las Brisas, etc. Will be back.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the water are a must.

Last night in California and needed a room for the night. Liked the look of the outside of the Inn and the great location. We decided to check it out and were delighted about our room! They had thought of everything. The furniture and decor were stylish and comfortable, robes, mini-bar, coffee pot, etc. etc.! Were so sad we could not stay longer, but if we go back we will definitely stay there!

Thank you for your comments, we are sorry you were only able to stay one night, we hope you return for a longer visit. In June we completed a multi-million dollar renovation so I am happy to hear that we thought of everything. Thank you as well for commenting on the location, we are 84 steps to the beach and a couple of blocks from the Village. I hope the next time you stay at the hotel you will look me up so I can give you a warm Laguna Beach Welcome

Thank you

Stayed for four nights in November in a sea view room, they do have rooms facing the pool and inland.

The hotel has a great location overlooking Laguna Beach and within a few mins walking distance on the town centre which has a great selection of restaurants, bars, local and independent stores.

Facilities at the hotel are limited, there is no bar or restaurant but it doesn't matter, the service, location, quality of rooms and their set up more than compensate. This isn't your corporate hotel so don't expect any of the mundane aspects you find at the

We had a Sibling Reunion of five from three states at the Inn at Laguna Beach for three nights. The Inn is located right on the ocean adjacent to the main Laguna Beach Park to the south and Heisler Park to the north. Heisler Park has a wonderful walk along the ocean cliffs, great photo shots. Twenty minutes from Orange County John Wayne Airport. The three sisters took two adjoining rooms (only one available, non-ocean side) together and the two brothers a balcony room over looking the ocean. The staff was very good, friendly, and took pictures of the five of us.

We had one small maintenance issue that was fixed in one hour. Parking for guests is lower level under the Inn. Parking is $29 per night with plenty of spaces. The location of the Inn is excellent with walking to shopping, restaurants and the main beach. We never used are cars. Can recommend Inn at Laguna Beach. Wonderful stay and loved by the entire family.

Room Tip: The rooms with a balcony overlooking the ocean are located over the swimming pool area and over a no...

The rooms at the inn are wonderfully modern and spacious, and the views overlooking the bay just gorgeous. The only downside we experienced was that the fire alarm went off three times in 24 hrs, incl. in the middle of the night. No fun! The location is great and very close to the heart of town--but the rooms can be a bit noisy, being next to Highway # 1 and the construction next door. Definitely recommendable if you get a deal.
