“Labor Day Weekend ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

It's our first time at this hotel and we were happy to be able to make last minute reservations specially on a holiday weekend. We are here for the Labor Day weekend and It's also a getaway to celebrate my husband's upcoming birthday. We love the location on the beach and walking distance to restaurants and shops. Our room is clean, and the staff is friendly and helped us when we needed restaurant recommendations. I love the view of the ocean from the rooftop. Our room has the view of PCH. They have complimentary wine at 5:00pm and milk and cookies later in the evening. The only negative so far is that there is an awful odor coming from the sink near the bathroom. We informed front desk and they had someone come and fix it. However, we can still smell that foul odor. We have one more night here so I will update my review once we are done with our stay.

Stayed September 2014

Our family has visited Laguna for many, many, years but this was our first stay at the Inn At Laguna Beach. It is a wonderful hotel with an incredible staff. Really and truly! When we arrived William, the front desk manager, had a bottle of champagne on ice waiting in our room. Before we walked to our restaurant we joined the other guests at the top floor patio for complementary wine and cheese and a breathtaking sun set. It was a little after 11:00 p.m. and our daughter's car was parked several blocks away, our bell men walked her to her car and back. We didn't ask him. He just did it. Wonderful hotel, incredible staff, really and truly. Can't beat the view either. Joseph M

Room Tip: They are all good. Just go and enjoy.

We had a family reunion and this was the perfect place to stay. The staff was excellent, the rooms were very clean and comfortable and the grounds were well taken care of. The concierge was a huge help with the events we had planned. I would definitely come back again.

This Inn is located right on the beach with a picture perfect view of the Pacific Ocean. Walk out the back of the lobby and you find yourself on the publick walkway/boardwalk along the beach. The Inn has a small lobby with a small seating area where is is convenient to meet other people in your party. The Inn has rooms that are both interior access through corridors and a few rooms that are exterior access. The rooms themselves were very nicely decorated and comfortable. The staff was very helpful in making suggestions for dining in the area with a large group. There is garage self parking underground. Everything was in walking distance for us and there are free trolleys that run through the area. While this is not directly a comment on the hotel itself, it is something to consider when thinking about requesting a room. Our room had exterior access, so our balcony was open and shared as part of the exterior hallway and was at the end of the hallway. The Inn is a completely non-smoking hotel, but other guests felt it was acceptable to find their way onto our balcony/passageway, talk, move furniture, and smoke in the early hours of the morning. Not a negative about the hotel, but I would request a room that would avoid that situation in the future.

Room Tip: Avoid the exterior access rooms as your balcony is accessible by anyone

Dear Vickier1

Thank you for your comments regarding your recent visit to The Inn at Laguna Beach, we take all comments positive and negative seriously as it helps us improve our products and service. I am sorry to read that guest were smoking on the walkway as we are 100% non-smoking and there is a $250 cleaning fee for smoking unfortunately this does not deter everyone. Please accept my sincerest apologies.

We could not agree with you more that our location is perfect a few blocks to the Village of Laguna with over 40 restaurants, shops and art galleries as well as steps to Main Beach.

We hope you return soon and we can accommodate your request for the balcony, I would also love to personally welcome you back to the hotel.

Thank you
Peggy

We arrived here late after a long drive from Santa Barbra. We were greeted by Brendan at reception who was aware that we were on honeymoon. The treatment and attention we received from Brendan was superb. It was a great start to our stay, thank you Brendan. We stayed in a room overlooking the beach. The room itself was modern, bright, spacious and contained all the mod cons. We had a balcony with fantastic views, great for breakfast and lunch. You are right on the beach so didn't spend any time at the pool. Any staff we dealt with were courteous and professional.

We have been coming to the Inn for years and always find our time there wonderful! The staff have achieved a unique balance of friendly warmth and amazing professionalism without ever seeming stuffy. Annette and the front desk staff go out of their way to accommodate every need. The rooms are cottage chic, the views unsurpassed and the location is amazing. This is a Laguna Gem.

Room Tip: Request ocean front for amazing shoreline views

We just spent a week at the Inn At Laguna Beach. We booked 3 Ocean front rooms. When i first called to make our reservations i spoke to Jonathan Go. He was more than helpful. We were taking my 87 year old mother with us, so travel can sometimes be difficult. BEFORE we got here, Lindsey called me to ask if I needed help planning and booking restaurants, activities, etc. When we arrived the customer service just continued to be excellent. Drew met us in the lobby, helped us with our many bags (3 daughters in their 20's, so you can imagine how many bags) and was just so pleasant. He continued to take care of us for the rest of the vacation. I have to say everyone who works there aims to please. The view of the beach was just gorgeous. The location is excellent. it is within walking distance of many restaurants, shopping and the Festival of Arts (California's premier art show). We travel quite frequently and i am very particular as to where we stay. I would not hesitate to book this hotel again.

Room Tip: Loved the ocean front rooms

Thank you for your comments regarding your recent visit to The Inn at Laguna Beach. Jonathan, Lindsy, and Drew are just a few of the superstars I work with daily. I am truly lucky to work with a group of people that care about every guest stay and I am so happy that you experienced the level of service that we all expect at The Inn. You also touched on our location, we do consider it one of the best in town, as you stated we are within walking distance to the Village of Laguna and steps to the beach. I am truly thankful we were able to make your travel and stay a success with your mom.

We hope to see you the next time you are visiting California's Gold Coast.
