I booked this hotel after reading all the reviews and was not disappointed. This was a perfect location for the Pageant of the Masters, beach, and Art Festival. The staff was friendly and extremely helpful, loaning beach towels and giving advice on food options nearby. The room (209) was very clean and had a nice balcony with a slight view... More

The rooms were so clean and the personnel were so nice. They helped my semi-handicapped mom get comfortable. The rooms are so beachy comfy. This is the perfect place to stay in Laguna. Parking is easy and access to all areas of Laguna are right there. The air conditioning is wonderful. I highly recommend this place!

I just stayed here last week in room 207 which was a king room with kitchenette. Let's get one thing straight upfront: this is NOT a luxury hotel, whatsoever. It's a budget hotel, so I am reviewing this on that basis. For a budget hotel style place, it's very good overall. The location is spectacular, it's a 3 min walk... More

Received a terrific welcome by the co-owner, Anderson. We were allocated to a quiet room with plenty of space. Full of amenities including delicious snacks and bottles of water waiting for us upon our arrival. I will go back to this friendly place.

Absolutely loved staying here!! Got the special birthday rate! BBq by the pool. Everyone was super nice that worked there. Conveniently located close to town, the beach and the grocery store. Hop the "wave" shuttle to the beach, or transfer and head up to the sawdust art festival.

Checking in, I learned my particular room, reserved 2.5 months prior, had been given to another guest that day! Staff made it right and were very hospitable. Room nicely decorated with very comfy beds. Location is in Gallery Row, north of Broadway. A bit of a walk to the main area of town, but a nice respite from traffic. Kindness... More

Lovely american dream type place. Great base. Walk to mostly anything. Short taxi or uber to everything else. Great burger place up the road. Make sure you try the Husky burger. Downtown is 5 mins walk.

We used to stay at the Laguna Beach House but traveling with 2 young kids (3 and 1), we decided to book the suite at the Tides, with a separate bedroom, a dining room and a kitchen.
