“everything just right”
Reviewed February 7, 2012

I lived in Laguna Beach for 10 years so I know the micros and macros of the area. When I return now for visits I only stay in one place, Art Hotel. The owner is your pal, even the first visit, the rooms are spotless and sunny, the under building parking is easy and the rates fairly reflect that the hotel is not in the midst of the downtown, though to me that is an advantage since the cove beaches nearby are the best in Laguna to my taste, small tucks of sand between rocky cliffs. the hotel is on Pacific Coast Highway which I would have said eliminates it from contention but in fact never has bothered me. This is a no brainer choice given the very high rates for rooms elsewhere, with no real bottom line advantages.

Room Tip: the rooms at the back of the complex.

You can't beat the hotel accomodations/location for the price. Free parking, coffee maker in-room, microwave/refrigerator in-room, and within walking distance to the beach and downtown Laguna. Staff was very friendly and accomodating. We walked along the beach to downtown and back. Great exercise! Road noise wasn't a factor, we kept the a/c fan on all night. BTW, towels were good quality and the rooms were clean; clean bathroom and clean sheets. For those of us who can't afford a luxury hotel in Laguna Beach, this place is the perfect place.

My earlier review (which I stand by as an international traveller) mentions this but I want to emphasize that the pool is tiny and right on the PCH. The owners are present in the reception but, after speaking to husband twice about persistent group noise and the lack of space by the pool for three days due to the same group, all we got was a shrug. We stayed away as much as possible and my daughter laughs whenever I mention our visit. Should I mention that some rooms are used as apartments?

Room Tip: As far away from the PCH and pool area as possible.

Gale, the lady at the front desk was a doll! She was great, service was excellent. Gave us suggestion son what to see and where to go. Rooms were lovely and the artist that painted the outside of the hotel is a talented guy as well as humorous! Everyone has been extremely nice. The experience has been great and would love to come back. 5 stars!

My family and I recently stayed at the Art for a family wedding. It was wonderful. Clean room, comfortable beds and the price can't be beat for the otherwise pricey Laguna Beach area. We will definetely return.

What a great place to stay! I wish I could find a place like this whenever i'm traveling. A clean room, comfortable bed, great location with warm friendly management, and priced just right! Gail (the owner) took the time to recommend a couple of great places to visit with incredible views of the pacific. She also provided menus of all the local area restaurants. I would recommend this place to anyone.

Room Tip: ask for the room across from the pool.
