“rather sofisticated”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

I stayed in the room with ocean view -rather cute, but really expensive. In the evening they offered complimentary wine, pool is rather good. Bad thing - large construction site just next to the hotel - spoils everything. Continental breakfast in the room - $25 for pastries and coffee.

Room Tip: best rooms are oceanfront with balcony, but very expensive though

Charming inn with great staff( I receive d a very warm welcome), clean and upgraded rooms . Enjoyed heated pool and free coffee as well as free wine and cheese receptions. The bed was really comfortable - sealy posturpedic I think. I like the ocean view room where you can hear the waves all night and see the sunset and lights of the next beach at night. Plan to stay here again soon.

Thank you for choosing to stay at the Inn at Laguna Beach and remaining a loyal guest. You are correct about the new beds they are a Sealy 800DSI Plush Euro Pillow Top and I am happy to hear you slept well. Thank you again and I look forward to welcoming you back on your next visit.

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.

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
Peggy

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
