We checked in and were given a room with a view straight down the highway :( Changed rooms to a pool view which had a nice view but an odd smell (I think it was the feather duvet). Speaking of the duvet, it was very thick which was un necessary as it was July and meant we had to have...

We recently stayed at the Laguna Cliffs Marriott for 2 nights of our 10 day trip in CA exploring the coast from San Fran.

I have been back to this property a few times since my last review and it is still a great property with an excellent location. Had a minor issue (double billing) that was promptly addressed.

We were impressed with the general property of Laguna Cliffs. As we drove up the hill we saw people gathered around by tiki torches enjoying cocktails on a cool California evening. The bell man could not have been nicer and every valet we encountered was courteous and efficient. We had the buffet breakfast, which is a little pricey but when...

Was there for a business meeting. Property was very nice. It is walking distance to the beach. It has an open air feel like in Hawaii. Food was above average even for a big group. Front desk and wait staff all were very nice. And helpful. I would go back on my own.
