“Perfect Weekend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2014

My husband and I stayed at this amazing boutique hotel this past weekend. We were there beginning Thursday night and were lucky enough to be there for the Laguna Beach Art Walk - the hotel hosted such a fun, intimate party for art walk. They showcased surf art and provided drinks and music on the adorable patio which was complete with the cutest bistro lights, succulent arrangements, etc. all directly overlooking the beach. The beds are comfortable, the decor is a great aesthetic fit for their beach-front vibe, they have the best complimentary products in the bathroom (what other hotel offers make-up removing towelettes? loved them!) and the staff is so friendly and helpful. I highly recommend staying here if you have the opportunity!

Room Tip: Beach-front room had an amazing view!

We came to the Inn at Laguna Beach for a night away and to check out the art exhibit. What a perfect night! The views were just spectacular, and the room was really well appointed with everything we needed. It had a clean and cozy feel, and all of the staff were super friendly and helpful. I loved the eco-friendly products and the plants throughout the hotel. And of course the location can't be beat! We can't wait to come back!

Green Features: Loved these features! Everything from the local succulents to the in-room water bottles reflected creative and well thought out eco-friendly practices.

This is a bit of tough one. The location of this place is unbeatable. It's right above "Main Beach," which (unsurprisingly) is the main beach in LB. It's a 5-minute walk to Forest Ave, the main drag in LB with lots of nice shops and restaurants. It's right next door to the legendary Las Brisas, a Mexican place with a beautiful patio overlooking the ocean. It's a short walk to Heisler Park, one of the nicest parks anywhere . . . a long, skinny park on the bluff overlooking some beautiful beaches, great for walking, jogging, and picnicking. So once you park (they do have an underground lot), you really don't need your car at all.

The rooms are fine -- nothing spectacular, but very serviceable and comfortable. Most have a balcony with a view of the beach and ocean, perfect for relaxing in the morning or late afternoon.

But, that's it -- the hotel has no amenities, other than a terrace on the 4th floor with expansive ocean views (which has a 10 p.m. curfew!!). No bar, no restaurant. No gym. A small pool. A little coffee cart in the morning, and that's it. On the other hand, there's a Starbucks across the street, and the whole town of LB right outside your doorstep, with all sorts of places to eat, and there's a Whole Foods 4 blocks away.

So, if what you want is a spectacular view, phenomenal location, and nice but not great rooms, this is your place. If you want luxurious rooms and great amenities, go up the road to the Montage or the St. Regis, where you'll pay a few hundred dollars more per night.

Absolutely the best location you can have in Laguna Beach. Right on the beach! Within walking distance to most everything. We walked 4 or 5 miles daily. Close to Newport Beach and not that far from San Diego. Had a problem with the air conditioning but the staff first tried to get it to quiet down and when that didn't work offered to move us. Had our dog, Rudy, with us and the staff treated him as well as they treated us.
We were treated warmly and will return.

You can't get much closer to the beach than here. We walked right outside our room & down a 5 min walk & you're at the beach.
Top notch location!
It doesn't get much better than opening the window & listening to crashing waves to fall asleep.
The room itself was nice but not mind blowing.
The hotel is very nice & I would stay again but location is what sells this place.

I really loved this hotel. The staff were all so friendly and welcoming and the evening wine reception was a nice touch. As for my room, it fels very clean and the the bed was comfortable. I had a patio looking out to the ocean which was fantastic. Location-wise you'd be hard pressed to find a more central location than Inn at Laguna Beach.

Right on the beach, charming hotel within walking distance to everything. Coffee in the AM, Wine in the PM outside on the roof! Make sure to get an oceanfront room. Great stay in a fabulous location. Surf was just fine in April!
