Really difficult to find affordable accommodation in the summer in Laguna beach but this is a gem. I would describe it somewhere between hotel and motel but everything worked well. Friendly staff and free water & popcorn, lemonade and coffee was a nice touch. Fantastic location too

From the moment we were greeted in the peaceful lobby to the moment we reluctantly packed our bags to go home, this hotel was a lovely place to stay and relax. The lobby has fresh popcorn all day as well as nicely flavored water, sodas and coffee. The rooms are all arranged around a lovely pool area with beautifully tended... More

Definitely one of the best holiday inns I've come across. Feels like your in a Spanish Villa- not too many rooms and a decent pool situated in the patio. Service is ok. Rooms are clean and staff was generally friendly. Great location walking distance to the beach, bars and restaurants.

We were 3 60+ ladies. Reservations since April with rolleraway bed for 3rd person. Actually gave us mattress on the floor instead of rollaway bed. Had the nerve to say it was not guarenteed. Carpet is visibly dirty and they expect us to sleep on matress on the floor. They were kind enough to give us sheets and waived the... More

Spent one night with my son as a side trip to our San Diego lacrosse tournament travel. Did not realize it was a motel when booked. Nice.,but not special. Rooms are small and could use a little TLC. I put this as a nice and convenient 3.5 hotel. Staff was extremely nice.

I was here on Saturday night. The hotel shuttle van was on time for pickup and check in was quick and easy. The front desk staff...nice. The room was nice, beds comfortable, and the a/c worked great! Close to the airport and the baseball stadium. I recommend this hotel.

Employees were all fantastic. Parking good. Location OK to downtown area but Very busy street with heavy fast traffic. Beach accessed from across street is NOT where your family will want to hang out, it is narrow and sand not great. There are much better beaches in driving distance so the location isn't much benefit. (Crescent Bay in LB or... More
