We've been coming to Laguna Beach for about 12 years now to see the Pageant of the Masters, to enjoy the food, the boutiques, and most of all the ocean. We've tried at least 7 of the hotels, but for the location to the surf sights & sounds, and shops/restaurants, and a bit more affordability than the Surf & Sand,... More

Having read some not too good reviews about this hotel, particularly the dated Village rooms, we decided at the last moment to phone ahead for an upgrade. It was well worth it. Although the only room available was an apartment with a partial sea view, the partial view was enough. The apartment was spacious and comfortable enough for 4 people... More

I got in kind of late. Imagine my surprise and joy to find two friendly staff members, Stacie and Javid, ready and willing to help! They were awesome in every sense of the word. They anticipated my needs, clearly explained how to get to my room, and did it all with a smile. Definitely made my visit. Can't wait to... More

I visited the Orange County area regularly over the past 2 years and made The Pacific Edge Hotel my regular home away from home. It is a unique piece of the past brought up to date.

Truly could not have asked for a better stay in Laguna Beach. The staff is beyond helpful, even before we arrived. We had an ocean front suite in the Surf wing. The views are to die for. The room itself was modern and super cute, and very clean. Location is perfect as everything you need is within close walking distance... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Imagine the cool ocean breeze brushing up against your cheek. Admire the views of the deep, blue, Pacific Ocean from the balconies overlooking the waves of one of our oceanfront rooms. Enjoy convenient sunning, surfing and swimming as the sand is just steps from your room. Pacific Edge Hotel is not only steps away from the sand of the California coast, but also steps away from everything that Laguna Beach has to offer. The hotel is within walking distance of both Laguna Village and the shops and galleries along the South Coast Highway. In addition to your holiday and vacation needs, we are known for being an ideal destination for groups, social events, and wedding. Our magnificent Villa offers a prime, one-of-kind event space, suitable for the most important and precious events. We look forward to you joining us for your next leisure or business stay. ... more   less
