I booked this place because of location - walking distance to Heisler Park. The guy at front desk could not have been nicer. Very polite, professional, & helpful. The hotel is an older bldg, but our room was clean & had plenty of space. We didn't stay long enough to use the pool, but it looked nice. I would stay... More

We were in LA for a week and took a little jog out to Laguna for a night. The hotels are so expensive in the area we decided to give this one a try. It was very affordable and it's an outstanding location. It was very clean, spacious and the staff was very friendly. As other reviewers have noted it's... More

We had booked room 205, which has a big comfy bed, one comfortable chair and a good sized TV. The bathroom (with shower only) is old but ok. There is a fridge and a coffee machine in the space between the bedroom and bathroom, which were handy. Location is so good – short walk to Heisler Park and not too... More

In Laguna Beach and right on PCH, thus, well-positioned for travelling the coast. Close to varied places for breakfast and dinner and all these beautiful beaches. But even with swimming pool and free parking not really appropriate for longer stay, especially if you can only sleep without having any constant highway noise getting through closed windows. (The hotel offers though... More

We enjoyed our one night stay here! We slept well and didn't notice the PCH noise at all.. The room is a little small but a good value for the buck. We walked two blocks to the wonderful beaches and restaurants!

After a stressful month, my girlfriend and I needed a break and thought of visiting Laguna Beach just for a night to get some rest, peace and quiet and ocean air to unwind. Did my homework and read a somewhat mixed review of The Tide Inn. The staff are really nice and pleasant, but that's where it went downhill for... More

Have stayed here several times and have booked again for the future. It is true paradise and the place is perfect in just about every way! We come without a car, and can walk everywhere. But lets not tell too many people, or we won't be able to get a room next time!

Found this amazing place while searching for a BEST place to stay in Laguna Beach. BEST means price, location, amenities. This lovely motel has it all.

This is an ideal hotel for anyone looking to stay fairly close to the beaches and nightlife of Laguna Beach without spending huge amounts of money. Our room was very pleasant and a good size and was nicely decorated. It was possible to park for free either right outside or very close by. The pool area was fairly good and... More
