Beachfront and center of town, this historic landmark holds its charm. It was impressive to see the original hotel guestbook dating back decades on display in the lobby (filled with notable celebrities of the time). The staff was helpful and we were grateful that our request for adjoining rooms was easily accommodated. However, the rooms, bathrooms, windows and furniture terribly...

The rooms are "old" and a little tired BUT... the location is perfect... the food/ restaurant was great and the customer service... exceptional! We arrived late and our reservation had been accidentally cancelled. Steve, @ the front desk went out of his way to accommodate my family & make sure we were taken care of with an upgraded situation.

Even though the room felt a bit old and perhaps in need of some refurbishment I found Hotel Laguna to be better then expected. It had a sort of classic romantic feeling and was sort of cozy and easy going. The location in the heart of Laguna Beach was really nice since there were so many bars and restaurant within...

We came here during the weekend of a rainstorm, so we weren't able to take advantage of this hotels prime location as planned otherwise this would probably be a more favorable review. The hotel is situated on a perfect piece of real estate right on the south end of Laguna Beach with wonderful beach access. Even in the rain there...

What an amazing view and location! Right on the beach, close to restaurants and shops, and awesome service. The hotel needs to be renovated though, and I understand from staff that it will be. The restaurant is great, but the rooms are outdated and feel stuffy and old. My allergies played up due the humidity/dust/etc. Wifi also needs an upgrade...

I choose the Hotel Laguna because of two reasons, one the price was within my price range for a one night stay and the second because of the location. The Hotel Laguna is an older hotel, the lobby area is very nice, clean, access to the outside parking and several stores along the street have access from with in the...

The rooms were clean and comfortable, the view of the Pacific Ocean with its blue water was awesome! We saw a mother whale and her calf swimming by and a pod of dolphins, it was fantastic! Located right in the heart of Laguna, we will be back many more times. The staff at the hotel were friendly and helpful.

This is the iconic place in Laguna, old school, and perfectly situated to walk downtown Laguna. The coastline views from the restaurant, and some of the rooms are wonderful. The hotel has a small private area of beach, with lounge chairs and restaurant service available. Our room was very basic, barebones. Our bathroom had that old plastic box hair dryer...

We decided to do something fun for New Year's Eve.... so we booked a room here. There are so many places that are walk-able, so you can park your car and leave it alone! The room had such a European flair, historical, quaint and a little aged. Had a great dinner at the restaurant, walked to a few bars that...
