An average hotel room, could do with fresh paint and decor. The room was clean, the bed comfortable and the room airy however the breakfast was more like a summer camp affair. A very friendly man cooked eggs and there was plenty of pancakes and fried potatoes for the carbohydrate seeking surfer but otherwise a rather basically presented spread. For... More

I would love to give this beautiful hotel an excellent rating. It was in a great location, the room was very nice & the staff was outstanding. Beautiful pool area. Decent breakfast.

We recently spent a week at the hotel. We were visiting a family member who moved to the growing retirement community in Laguna Woods and wanted to be close by. The room was comfortable, the pool area was great and a wonderful breakfast is included in the rate. Would definitely return.

We have always enjoyed our stays (numerous) in spaciously, well-equipped rooms [sink, mini-refrigerator, & wifi], comfortable beds and ease of access. The breakfasts are exceptionally well prepared and varied. They have a happy hour and a shuttle to the Santa Ana airport. Located twenty minutes to the Laguna Beach, the setting comes with a hot tub and pool.

Dangerously slippery bathtub/shower combination. Serious injury very possible. Shampoo and conditioners are in plastic containers with edges sharp enough to shave. No worthwhile restaurants within walking distance. There is a Thai restaurant that serves bad food.
