and a very clean and comfortable one at that. So, if you don't plan on spending your time out in the community, you might want to look for another place to hang your hat. My wife and I, however, found the Laguna Beach room to be more than adequate to our needs, with one of the most comfortable beds I've encountered in years, a private bath, and a standard definition television with access to more channels than I could skim in an hour. Note: if you travel with more than a couple would carry onto an aircraft, the room could get a bit crowded.
Breakfast, which included hot and cold items, ranged from good to very good, and was available early enough for the days we had to be somewhere and late enough for the days we chose to sleep in a bit. The beach is only blocks away.
The inn is located about mid-way between downtown and the fashionable Belmont Shore area along 2d St and Naples Island. I've been to LB 3 times since the first of the year and this was far and away the best location I've found.
If one of the other reviewer's reference to neighborhoods he traversed on the way to the inn makes you nervous, it's readily accessible from the north by way of the 405 and 710 to dowtwon, then south on Ocean Blvd., by way of the 405 to Redondo west to Broadway, or from the south by way of the Pacific Coast Highway to Broadway. (I found no reason to be concerned about my travels through any of the neighborhoods through which one might travel to reach the inn.)
WiFi functioned well throughout our stay.
As others have noted, parking is free, though around the corner.
