Pacific Edge Hotel on Laguna Beach
Ranked #13 of 23 Hotels in Laguna Beach
Reviewed March 12, 2014

My wife and I just got back from a week at Pacific Edge on Laguna Beach. We have both experienced an avalanche of stress this past year...lots of family illness and deaths. When I booked us in at Pacific Edge and explained our situation they could not have been more compassionate and kind to us from the moment we checked in until the minute we checked out. They went out of their way to make us safe and comfortable. We had an awesome room looking over the beach and the surf. We literally took steps from our room onto the beach everyday, then were treated to beach chairs, towels, and an umbrella on the beach. The Reef Restaurant staff are unbelievably friendly and thoughtful (my wife forgot her purse containing her wallet and passport...when she realized and went back, the girl had made sure it was safe and secure...wow).
The valet guys couldn't have been more helpful or friendly as well. In fact, all of the staff get a 2 thumbs up from us. We will definitely go back there in a heartbeat. Highly recommend it!

Room Tip: the tower views are worth it.

I am the first to admit, my husband and I are a tough audience because we work in the hospitality industry in Vegas. And this place BLEW US AWAY! The service from the time we pulled our car up to Valet to the time we drove away was spectacular. Everyone (valet attendants, housekeepers, front desk agents, etc) was super nice. Bryan, the front desk manager, was incredibly friendly and helpful! He wished me a Happy Birthday, and even recommended a few restaurants nearby worthy of a birthday celebration dinner. His favorite turned out to be more than fabulous - one of the best dining experiences we have had. The hotel room itself was perfect - affordable, quiet, and beautifully decorated with a cool modern vibe. The private balcony was worth it's weight in gold - we spent most of our time simply sitting outside, enjoying the fresh air and sounds of the ocean. Our experience at Pacific Edge was truly the perfect getaway, and I can't wait to go back! This place has made it on our favorites list, and we will be recommending it to everyone we know. Looking to stay in Laguna Beach? Look no further. Go book a beachfront room, and enjoy. Seriously, take it from us. You're welcome. :)

Room Tip: Make sure to book a Beachfront room, it's worth the extra $$. And if you are a AAA member, you c...

Spent the night here as a special birthday mini vacay. For a very reasonable price chose to upgrade to ocean view! WOW!!! Unbelievable sunset view over the ocean and down to main beach. Very relaxed atmosphere yet very professional. Everyone from valets to housekeepers
super helpful and friendly. The Deck Restaurant was amazing! Awesome food and absolutely unbeatable service. It was really busy but we never had to wait for anything. couldn't recommend the whole experience more! You gotta go!

Room Tip: Top floor of surf tower was EXCELLENT!

I had scouted the internet relentlessly looking for a hotel located directly on the beach and yet affordable. I was concerned when I had checked in and was told that our room would be facing the main street. I had expressed this concern and was very pleasantly surprised with they upgraded us into a very nice 2 story apartment, facing the beach! Everyone would have LOVED to stay one or two more nights but our reservations to another hotel in San Diego could not be cancelled unfortunately. We felt very safe there and appreciated the valet parking, having someone there at all times. They offer beach towels, beach chairs and beach umbrella's. We did not get a chance to utilize their restaurant but it was inviting every time we walked by to the delicious smells.It is such a BEAUTIFUL setting!!

This hotel was so accommodating to us after dealing with four flight cancellations to get out of Washington DC due to a massive snow storm. Our trip included stays in Santa Monica, West Hollywood, Disney and Laguna Beach. While all properties we stayed at were in the same category of expense and luxury, this property was by far the best experience.

Brian and the front desk staff was so welcoming and they created an environment that we were able to enjoy ourselves and truly relax. I have zero complaints and only hope that I find a way to make it back to this hotel.

Room Tip: One must get the oceanfront rooms.

My wife and I wanted a relaxing, romantic week on the beach. Being from the east coast, we knew very little about the best places to stay in California, let alone Laguna Beach. So, we surfed the internet, read the reviews and settled on The Pacific Edge Hotel with slight trepidation caused by a tiny percentage of not-so-great reviews. Jackpot! The whole experience was amazing. A beautiful, clean room with a king bed on the first floor, with a balcony literally hanging just 8 feet over the beach and the waves at high tide lapping within 6 feet of the building's foundation. Every night, we watched an amazing sunset over the water and, later, the breaking waves lulled us to sleep. Amazing maid and valet services. The hotel's restaurant, The Deck, was right on the beach and had a great staff, great food and great view. The hotel is within walking distance of everything. The staff was very friendly and helpful. It really was possibly the best vacation experience we've ever had, and we can't wait to stay there again. ** The only annoyance, and it was a small one, was the occasional smokers who apparently thought the "absolutely no smoking" signs placed prominently on the balcony handrails were merely a suggestion.

Room Tip: We stayed on the first floor in the Reef building, which is the closest to the water and down the be...
