I chose this location based on reviews on Trip Advisor and the Driftwood Kitchen has great reviews. It is reasonably priced, and located right on Laguna Beach. It has everything you need. The rooms were somewhat dated but did have some updating such as new carpet. VERY clean and the little kitchenette is handy if you were staying for more...

We went to the Pacific Edge for a combination Thanksgiving/ 52nd aniversary. We went to the same place for many years when it was Vacation Village. We booked a ocean front dog friendly room in the Reef building. Check in was a breeze.Having to use the valet was not our preference but can understand because parking is at a premium...

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
