We enjoyed this hotel for its friendly staff& great locale. The breakfast was varied with an automatic pancake maker!! A short walk to the beach. Room was huge with a separate sitting room. We had an ocean view & several restaurants close by.

This little inn is a jewel. Not only is it across from the PCH fro my he sea, but it is well located,to Laguna beach and Mission Capistrano. The manager Ferdinand is busy taking super good care of guests as well as the grounds. He is such a kind, considerate manager which is highly unusual in most hotels I've been... More

Very pleasant and quaint accommodations at this Inn By The Sea. The staff members were always helpful and courteous. We had a delightful and restful stay. The music in the courtyard was very soothing to the soul as we watched the sunset. And the recommendations for dining were a real treat !

In addition to a great location right across from the beach, this Best Western is more like a wonderful B&B than a motel. Fernando and Amy make you feel like they are personally here for your needs...and they make waffles for you every morning. The hotel is very clean and well maintained. It is well appointed with lovely sitting patios... More

Was in town for my 20th high school reunion, and wanted to stay near the beach. This hotel met all our expectations. We got a Ocean View room, which actually had an ocean view. We could actually hear the surf last night!

This is my second stay here in 18 months. Fernando (owner) and his staff are excellent. Everything was smooth and easy switching from a 1 night stay to a 2 night stay on a busy summer holiday weekend. I look forward to staying here again when I visit SoCal for work.

Very nice hotel and would recommend it to friends and family members. Very low key for middle of the week stay which was wonderful, very relaxed. Staff very nice and excellent service. Loved that it had a roof top terrace for viewing sunsets.

Our room was up to date and clean and we felt that it was a good room for the price. We had asked for a balcony room overlooking the ocean. We got one but the hotel is across the busy street from the ocean and the electrical/telephone wires prohibited a great view. The small courtyard is well kept and attractive.... More
