Walk to the beach is under 5 minutes, rooms are fresh and newly renovated. Parking is available and free of course. We found this one of our most relaxing hotels because everything for a nice beach day can be found there. Including beach chairs, towels and even surfboards. That are small things which are creating a lot of goodwill, compliments!... More

The biggest advantage to this motel is you can walk to the beach. It is a short block but there are quite a few steps down to the sand which might prove difficult for some people. The rooms are nicely appointed. The only disappointments were we expecting a tub/shower and free breakfast per the website. There was a shower only... More

We stayed two nights and the room was perfect for 2 adults and 2 kids. It was great to be able to park the car and walk to the beach and into town. The trolley car stop is also close by. Crescent Bay is a lovely beach for swimming and exploring the rock pools. The hotel has beach towels, chairs,... More

This motel is not really average, it just averages out the pros and cons. Pros: Nicely remodeled modern rooms, with well-functioning air conditioning, refrigerator and microwave. Our room was quiet. Free water and soda, Keurig coffeemaker, pastries.A lovely little beach cove down the hill. Cons: three buildings and grounds need repair work, tidying up, and painting. Some details problematic: a... More

One of the best features is that the hotel provides beach towels, chairs, umbrellas and boogy boards. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are very clean, with really nice showers. The breakfast is only light pastries and coffee, but they provide water and soda all day. We were only here one night, but completely enjoyed it.

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.
