This hotel is perfect! This was our 2nd time staying here. It sits right on the edge of the pacific ocean on Pacific coast highway. Pay the money for the upgrade to ocean front it is worth every penny. There are two pools, one is in a shady area and the other on the street but most your time will...

It is definitely worth the money to get an ocean view room. We started out with an interior room and it was odd that it had sliding glass patio doors that opened to the outdoor hallway. We moved to an ocean view and the view was stunning. The ocean is literally right beneath your balcony. This is the place to...

Pacific Edge was okay. The location is probably the best feature. Kind of a funky set up with rooms in several different buildings. We were upgraded to a beach front and I would definitely recommend an upgrade. The room was basic - two beds, a chair. Patio had a table and two chairs. Had a small fridge. No microwave. My...

Nice staff, and the views are amazing. There is a private beach where they provide chairs for the guests. There is plenty of stuff to do around here. Oh and Kevin from the Backstreet Boys is staying here right now while we are here..so that's cool haha.

First of all: if you've got a balcony watching over the Pacific you're king. Decent fare this hotel. Clean but outdated rooms, two very small swimmingpools but who needs that when you're smack right at the Pacific edge. Shops and restaurants abound. Nice and decent staff. Valetparking is good. Restaurant is good as well.

The reservation agent said, "you know it's a luxury hotel correct?". Right on the beach, but a variety of buildings. We were in one that was old, mildew smell and dirty from oldness. Loud. Sanitation trucks, back up sounds, people, valet loud. You name it and it was the worst sleep ever. Second room was newer, quieter but still the...

We had a surfside room with a king bed and what a view. We sat on the deck looking at the ocean most of our time there. I didn't like that you can't check-in until 4 pm. I understand why they do it, but most hotels have a 2 or 3 pm check-in and manage just fine. And why they...

I was with a group of friends and stayed a night on a Saturday for a friends birthday celebration here in Laguna. I would say it is a basic 3 star hotel. It is in a great location on PCH in the busy downtown part of Laguna, but not in the main part. It is walking distance to many restaurants,...

I never book hotels through discount websites and now I know why. They give you the worst room they have! First of all, you have to pay $30 for the hotel's valet service because finding metered parking is almost impossible on the street. Then, you have to keep putting more money in the meter to keep your car there overnight....

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
