Pacific Edge Hotel on Laguna Beach
Ranked #13 of 22 Hotels in Laguna Beach
Reviewed February 20, 2011

This place wasn't cheap, but it was so worth it! Got an oceanfront room on the top floor of the hotel - asked for an end room so we wouldn't share many walls with other rooms, and got it. Balcony with a couple of lounge chairs were wonderful for watching the sunrise and set. Free wifi in room, kitchenette with sink and fridge, bed very comfy and big. Free gym use at a gym a few blocks away, nice outdoor pool and hot-tub on site. Parking is all valet and around $20. Overall, well worth the splurge - was an amazing spot to stay in Laguna!

My fiance' and I stayed at the Pacific Edge Hotel for Valentine's Day this year, let me say it was nothing but amazing from start to finish. We arrived early in Laguna about two hours before check-in so we decided that we would walk on the beach for a while. We decided to ask the hotel if we would be able to park our car in their valet parking, even though we were early so we wouldn't have to pay the meters ever hour, they were more then happy to accept our car, the valet staff were so friendly, and FAST! After my fiance and I enjoyed a long walk on the beach, we went up to check in to the hotel. The staff at the front desk was just incredible. Not only was she very friendly, but she actually gave us an option of what room we wanted, we got to choose the side of the hotel and the level that we wanted. She even gave us the option that if we got into the room and didn't like the view, that we could come back and get another room. Both my fiance and I stay in hotels frequently and we have never been offered our choice of a room before. We asked the front desk if it would be possible for us to have late check out even if we had to pay extra, without any hesitation she gave us an extra two hours after the normal check out time at no cost. Everything we asked for, we were given within a couple minutes. We never had to wait for the valet to get our car, there is plenty of staff to assist both the Beach House Restaurant and the Pacific Edge. The rooms were clean and fresh, and the view... it's just breath taking. I would recommend this hotel to my friends, and clients as I'm an event coordinator in South County. If your looking for a romantic getaway... this is the place for you. After this trip my fiance and I have agreed to come back every month.. just experience the "joy of life" hotel..

Room was perfect. Very large and with the mini kitchen, desk, dressing room, perfect bed, three pillows and very nice bath. Could not believe they had a Keurig coffee maker and the exact Donut Shop coffee I drink at home every morning. Ocean view was wonderful and people were very nice everywhere in the whole complex. The food presentation and taste was without question everything I could have asked for! I was a little worried about how the Valet parking would work but it was very esay the way they had a single pickup and dropoff location. Very private and I felt very safe at this Hotel and in the entire complex. The beach view room had an awesome wood deck and very nice outdoor furniture too. I mean you are just feet away from the ocean. Beautiful sunsets!
Would go here over any other place we looked at on the beach in Laguna Beach. Very easy to Orange Country Airport (John Wayne). Car rental pickup and drop off was very quick and airport people were freindly like they actually appreciated your being a customer!

My wife and I stayed in oceanfront room and had an outstanding experience. The front office staff provides first class service; the rooms are very clean, the ocean view is spectacular, the location is excellent, just walking distance to shops and restaurants. This is our second time staying at Pacific Edge Hotel, already planning third trip. Highly recommend, you will not be disappointed.

We arrived on Tues Morning and we were able to go to our room upon arrival. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The room was very clean and the beds were extremely comfortable!
But, what we enjoyed the most was the view!
We were right on the Beach!
If we were any closer we would have gotten wet.
The dolphins were jumping when we arrived and the lights of the city were shining at night time.
We were able to bring our little dog and walk on the beach at any time.
All of the restaurants and shop are within a few blocks.
We highly recommend this hotel and will return!

Our entire group of 12 people had ocean front rooms with balconies right above the sand. Views were amazing and the rooms we were in were recently updated. The food from the Beach House next door was very good throughout our 3 days of meetings. Very close to town, literally on the beach and the service from the manager to the staff was great. I plan to return with the family.
