My wife and I stayed at the Holiday Inn Laguna Beach for ten days from March 19 to 29, 2012. I am Priority Club Platinum member and I decided to use my reward points for a California vacation, using this hotel as our home base. As others have said, you can't fault this hotel in terms of basic amenities, cleanliness and location. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a nice, comfortable, reasonably priced hotel within walking distance of all that Laguna Beach has to offer.
My only beef with the hotel is that they refused to upgrade us to a suite even though I am a Platinum member. We were given a standard courtyard room on the second level, which was small and not suited to an extended stay. When I asked at the front desk about an upgrade, I was told that there were no suites availabe during our stay. I was surprised to hear this given that I had booked the hotel early in February, so I checked with their online reservation desk and found that suites were available during our stay. I can only assume that the hotel did not want to provide someone traveling on reward points with a suite. That's disappointing considering my loyalty to the Priority Club brand of hotels and I would advise others traveling on points to check in advance as to the hotel's policy in this matter.
