This Holiday Inn is an older property, but it is well-kept. The rooms surround an inner courtyard with a pool and attractive garden. The rooms are a bit dated but are clean and comfortable. I've stayed at this hotel a few times recently, mid-week and off-season, and it's been very quiet. The front desk staff are very helpful and friendly. They even offered to print off a map on Map Quest for me, instead of merely providing verbal directions.
The really cool ammenities that this hotel offers are complimentary bottles of water, cans of soda, and fresh-popped popcorn in the lobby. What a nice touch! The Italian restaurant attached to this Holiday Inn, Mare Culinary Lounge, serves amazing food. It's not your 'typical' hotel restaurant and it is definitely worth a visit even if you're not staying at the Holiday Inn.
Across the street is a wonderful breakfast spot called The Orange Inn. They have fantastic homemade muffins. They also serve fresh juices and smoothies, as well as coffee. Sometime I'd like to check out their lunch offerings. The steps leading down to the beach are just beyond The Orange Inn.
Laguna Beach is a great place to visit. I would probably steer clear during the crazy summer season, but during this time of year it's easy to get around town, park, and enjoy the 70+ restaurants that the town has to offer.
