This is an all time favorite of mine. Close enough to the Main Beach and shops/restaurants but far enough to avoid the tourists and crowds. The pool is lovely, there is fresh coffee daily, and the beach is right down the street. I have not been since the change in management this month but hear it has only gotten better.... More

What an incredible surprise this quaint and oh so charming inn was. Checking in with Alex and finding parking a little challenging, he offered to give up his very own parking space to let us nest in for the evening, Give up a parking space in Laguna Beach? You've got to be kidding!! If you're looking for luxurious resort type... More

I stayed one week June 9-16 2016. My 1st issue was checking in. The manager, John, quoted $599 a week and I could bring my dog. When I checked in, the Asian owner then told me she wanted $699 and no dog and the two of them argued in front of me like Lucy and Ricky. It was uncomfortable and... More

This is a great little motel. Laguna Beach hotels are typically very expensive, and you have to pay an additional fee just to park your car. Not here. The Laguna Beach Motor Inn is very reasonably priced, clean and comfortable, very close to the beach, shops, restaurants and hiking trails, has a lovely interior garden and pool, and offers free...

This is in a great location on PCH, just a couple of blocks North of town, walking distance. The room was clean and spacious with a living room and kitchenette! Beautiful gardens and pool. It is a short walk to a beautiful little cove and beach, yo sun, swim or snorkel. Very reasonably priced!

This little place reminded me of staying at Grandma's house. We rented a little room with a nice private balcony overlooking the ocean. It also had a separate little seating area inside with a table and two chairs. The bathroom was clean. It is an older motel built in the 50s, but seems to be well kept. There is a... More
