Our family of four spent a couple of nights at this hotel after staying at many others down California's Route 1. This was the best by far. Nice room, air con, nice pool lit for evening use (until 9pm), complementary refreshments and helpful staff. Short stroll from the beach and shops. Would defiantly stay again.

We just spent four nights here and overall enjoyed the stay. We were upgraded to a suite (Spire status is worth it), which was spacious but a bit funky. The furniture and room overall were in need of updating, but it didn't bother us. The room had a fireplace which would be nice in the winter, but it was padlocked... More

Located on the Pacific Coast Highway hugging the ocean, this clean property could not be better located. Friendly staff and surprisingly quiet. I found it being located next to a full service Albertson's supermarket to make the location greater. If you are looking for a Four Seasons experience, go somewhere else. But if you want a fun and easy hotel... More

My 2 teens, wife and I visited Laguna Beach for the first time in June so we didn't know what to expect. Long story short is I'm glad we picked the Holiday Inn! It's close to everything you would want. Although it's not on the beach it's only a block away!

Difficult to find great hotels in center of Laguna Beach. I very carefully had read the many negative reviews of most of the local "motel", as these are definitely not " hotels". It has been ages since I stayed in a motel with window A/C, noisy A/C, small rooms, etc.. But I am not complaining, as long as you know... More

We went and stayed at the Wynn in Vegas and then we decided to drive to San Diego but ended up staying at the Holiday Inn. Very impressed and the rooms were updated, the swimming pool and the Gazebo were amazing. Great service and in beatable pricing. We all loved it

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
