Thank you to all at the hotel. We have just stayed for a few nights and were made to feel really welcome. The two guys we met at the reception were genuinely friendly and very helpful. The hotel was really well located a very short walk off Crescent Bay and right by the free trolley bus if you want to... More

I have stayed in Laguna Beach many times over the years since we have family nearby. We are used to paying exorbitant rates for old, small hotel rooms because that's a lot of what is in the area. That said, I am shocked that so many TripAdvisor reviewers gave this place 5 stars. Seriously. 1. Don't give a place a... More

They really have thought of everything. From our friendly welcoming check-in,to complimentary water,soft drinks,coffee and morning pastries,free use of beach chairs,parasols and body boards,this place was so relaxing. After a hectic few...

We stayed here and glad we did! Hotel staff was very nice. Beach was less than a 5 minute walk! Rooms were small but very clean. I would def recommend this place! Don't let the outside fool you. Depending on which room you get, you can see the ocean.

Great location//great price/great accommodations-what's not to love?! My husband and i stayed here this past week and enjoyed our experience. Yes, it looks more like a motel than a hotel, but don't let that put you off. It was clean, our room was spacious, and it's a 3 minute walk to the beach! Owners were friendly and very helpful. We...

This place is extremely well priced compared to other accommodation in Laguna Beach. Whilst from the outside it doesn't look much the rooms have been recently refurbished and are very well appointed and comfortable. The staff are very friendly and helpful and quite laid back. The location, whilst on the main road, the rooms were very quiet. We had a... More

Nothing's cheap on the California coast, however we were pleased to find the reasonably priced Crescent Bay Inn. While the hotel can't boast of water views, there is a path that will get guests down to a secluded beach cove. Rooms were clean and neat. We made use of the room's refrigerator and enjoyed the room's relatively new furnishings. While... More

We only spent one night here but it was perfectly fine. We were warmly greeted when we arrived. Our room looked exactly like the website. We walked to Mandarin King for a wonderful dinner and then took the trolley to check out Laguna at night. Our boys usually swim at Picnic beach but both thought Crescent Bay was far better.... More

Was in town for Pageant of Maters which was the best production yet. Staff gave excellent service. Love the location and the fact you can go all over Laguna on the free trolley and walk down to the ocean. Will definately stay here again when we are in the area.
