This is probably my 5th time staying in this place. Should I'll be back again...I'm not quite sure. Rooms: They have different rooms to choose from and it clearly states in their website. We got a surfview room and it is amazing..there is a big balcony where you can seat down and just relax. The room we got has a... More

The Laguna Riviera has been our family favorite for 20+ years. It definitely is a unique hotel. Each room is different and has its own view. This hotel's quirks are what create its character. With that being said, it is in desperate need of some TLC. First and foremost, the front desk staff needs a complete makeover. With the exception... More

Room was large and ocean front view was fantastic! Large TV, flat screen, microwave, small refrigerator. Great beach access, and a nice continental breakfast. It was built in the 40's, but they have updated the rooms nicely. We'd stay again!!!

The Laguna Riviera is an older property with character. All the rooms are different, some have private ocean front patios, some are smaller without any view at all. This time we stayed in a very pleasant room with a side view. Close enough to the ocean to open windows at night & hear the waves crashing. We had a sofa... More

Was here recently in May with my daughter. This has been our go to close getaway destination for a long time and we have loved it and told everyone about this secret gem. I do have to say that they are no longer on their game here. The place is in desperate need of some loving care. Our room, 301... More

One of our 'go to' places when we visit the area, probably our 5th visit. Great location and service. The rooms are a tad worn, but that's not necessarily a bad thing, always clean. The thing we like most about the place is it's character and proximity to the beach and views from the room. If you want the best... More

My friend and I were driving around California and WE didn't have a room for the night and we went to the hotels tonight app and found this place. It didn't look super great on the little phone, (sorry) so we thought we'd take a drive by, since the price was right. The fellow at the desk, Brian, said he... More

I made an online reservation for this hotel in early May, less then 3 weeks before my arrival date. The price was $199 per night for Memorial Day weekend. Upon arrival the hotel was swamped with people checking in. In a rush to help the front desk get through all the check ins, I signed my paperwork without reviewing it,... More

My wife and I stayed two nights in April. She had stayed there before and wanted to go back. The location, the views, the feel of the 50's and 60's...this place is just hard to beat for couples. I was impressed at the number of local people from Laguna who were staying here as a weekend treat. Great beach access,... More

This hotel was perfect for what we needed after 3 days at Disneyland. Just parked the car and then after a quick walk down the block for groceries parked our butts for nothing but ocean views, sounds and gorgeous sunsets plus whales and dolphins. Loved the direct access to the beach, the kitchen and grills. It is true that it... More
