“A Review from the UK”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

My wife ( who is handicapped/disabled) and I stayed for 16 nights including the Christmas period. As the average stay by Americans is under a week this was a long stay by comparison.The Hotel was excellent as were the staff. This is a UK standard 4 star hotel but without a restaurant or bar. This was not a problem however as there are numerous bars and restaurants a short walk away.Our package included a continental breakfast and as we were staying for 16 breakfasts we asked that the "menu" was mixed up a little to give us more variety. This was not a problem to the Hotel who did everything possible to make our stay as comfortable as possible.Breakfast was served to the room and always on time,coffee was available from reception from early morning. We stayed in room 420 which was adapted with a walk in shower etc. The room was excellent and the bed extremely comfortable.The only thing stopping us from giving an excellent rating is the parking charges. We knew before we travelled that this is normal at this type of hotel but as my wife was handicapped/disabled we had hoped that the charges may have been reduced a little. It was 29 dollars ( £18 a day) to park in a half empty car park per day. We can understand these charges in high season when parking is at a premium but were a little disapointed to have to pay this amount at this time of year.Our Travel agent did contact the Hotel in advance to see if there was any leeway but had no success.
Other than the Parking this was a great hotel with great people working in it. We would certainly visit again - and put up with the parking charges!
The American hospitality and customer service was memorable.

My wife and I stay at the Inn at Laguna at least twice a year. This year we stayed over Christmas and had the best time ever. The newly remodeled hotel is wonderful. The best part of the stay was the courteous and knowledgable staff. Every person we spoke to was polite and willing to answer our questions. We are looking forward to our next trip.

Room Tip: If you are requesting a ocean view room, the higher the floor the better.

An excellent hotel with gorgeous sea views. Staff are very friendly and professional, the rooms and beds are very comfortable. The location is perfect just a short walk along the beach from the restaurants in town. The daily complementary wine and cookie reception is a nice touch. Only thing missing for me was a bar and snack service at the pool. Highly recommend this place for quiet relaxing getaway..

Dear RodJBcn

Thank you very much for your positive review and highlighting our laocation and our staff, two things we pride ourselves on. We are certainly looking at ways to improve and one of the items we are discussing for 2013 is to add a bar to our 4th Floor Terrace for hotel guest and there guests. This being said we would be able to deliver to the pool area as well. It is my hope the next time you visit we will have implemented this change.

Thank you very much for your review, I hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday and we wish you all the best in the New Year

Excellent location for a stay in Laguna Beach. Just up the stairs from the main beach and a very short walk to Las Brisas Mexican Food Restaurant. The room with a balcony was a perfect place to enjoy the sunset with some wine and cheese. Highly recommend this cozy little hotel

We have stayed at the Inn At Laguna Beach several times a year during the last 5+ years primarily due to its amazing location in Laguna Beach and just tolerated the dated rooms. We just stayed there the weekend of Dec 1st, and what a huge difference a remodel makes. The tacky furniture has been replaced with contemporary nice furniture. The bathrooms now how have granite counters, and the icky shower curtain has now been replaced with a REAL shower door! All of the rooms have been completely redone, from the carpet and paint, to the furniture, linens and amenities. GREAT IMPROVEMENT!!!!! And now worth the room rate.

Room Tip: the King Ocean View rooms with the balcony are the best....great view of the main beach and Pacific...

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.
