We arrived in Laguna not knowing where to stay or where the motels were located. Came across this motel very close to the centre of Laguna and so we gave it a go. It was a Friday night and the offer price was very reasonable however the owner just failed to sell the positive aspects of the motel. The motel had lovely gardens and a beautiful pool, the sea is visible from the gardens and both the town and the beaches are very close by. Our room was big and airy with a separate kitchen and the room was equipped with a microwave and fridge freezer. There was coffee freely available all day and there is free wifi, all for the reasonable price on a Friday evening. So why didn't the owner tell us all this ?????? If there was an event at the olymcs of 'one word answers' the owner would win gold! Maybe the motel is a training groud for telepathy ! But now you know what it has to offer ! As stated it is ideally located the rooms were good and well equipped and there is a large supermarket across the road ideally placed. It was good value and we would definatly stay there again when in Laguna now my telepathy skills have been honed !!

My girlfriend and I took a recent vacation to Cali that was unexpectedly extended due to car problems. We stumbled upon this hotel by chance. It was the first hotel we came across when we entered into Lugana Beach and we saw that it was only a block from the beach. The rate for a Monday was only $99 so we decided to stay there. The hotel was very old so we didn't expect much.

When we entered our room Ie saw that it was somewhat smaller than average. The bathroom and shower were very small. The room had a queen bed, small refrigerator, table, and two chairs. The walls had been freshly painted (possibly from a remodel) and everything seemed cleaned. It wasn't until later in the night when I went to turn the heater on that I noticed that there was no ac/heater system installed in the room. There was only a small portable plug-in heater/fan in the room (it actually worked quite well). I then went to call the front desk and saw that the room had no phone, or even phone lines installed. At this point, I was not surprised to see that their was no clock in the room either.

Our room was towards the front of the hotel which borders PCH. The walls looked thick but I woke up in the middle of the night from road noise (didn't bother my girlfriend's sleep). Just outside of the room's entry door was a hallway balcony with two sitting chairs where you could sit and watch traffic. We saw that positioned throughout the hotels courtyard were potted plants. The grounds grass and schrubbery were immaculately maintained. There was a soda machine, ice maker, and coffe maker near the office. The pool was a nice size (up tp 7 feet deep) and also heated. No jacuzzi though.

In the morning we walked down a steep hill from the hotel and numerous stairs as we descended into a cliff to the beach. There was about 200 yards of beach where we were at and it was bordered on both sides by rocks (similar to a reef). The back drop was the cliff itself behind us. There were only about 30 other people on the beach. We saw that there were snorkerlers in the water, a couple of professional photographers taking pictures (one of a couple poising), and a fisherman on the nearby rocks, it had the feel of a private beach. I don't know the name of the beach but it definitely is a best kept secret.

We were aware that there were better rooms available at the hotel with a view, kitchen, or balcony but at much higher rates. Some of the rooms are 3 month rentals and possibly longer. I don't think the hotel quality would have improved if we spent more money on a better room and if we were willing to do so we would probably be staying somewhere else. Although our room had no ac controls, telephone (hence no room service), or clock we found that we did not need these items anyway. The weather was comfortable at about 75 degrees during our stay and at night the heater fan worked quite well. Also, I used my cell phone to make calls and also as an alarm clock.

My girlfriend and I talked in depth about this hotel and we both reached the same conclusion. Despite its many short comings, the distance to such a remarkable beach made up for it. Ordinarily when we are on vacation we don't spend much time in the hotel room anyway. We found this hotel to be clean and we felt safe in it. We would stay here again and recommend it to a friend however, if you want luxury and to be pampered your better off staying elsewhere.

We had an ocean view suite with a balcony in the front of the room with a table and chairs. We had a couple chairs and table in the room along with a refrigerato and microwave. We stayed on a Monday night and it was only $129. It is and older remodel hotel. The bed was comfortable and it was worth the money. It is a quick walk to the beach. The grounds at the hotel are very charming.

This hotel has a great location just steps from the beach and a large heated pool. But for $200 a night we got a room in desperate need of renovation, a "kitchenette" stuffed into a closet with the smell of leaking gas. No phone, no clock, no view and a refrigerator next to the bed instead of a night stand (it couln't fit into the closet) There were a few people appearing to live there and kids running around in their diapers in the courtyard. What a wierd experience!

I've stayed at his motel for many years. I am 42 with 4 children and i own a business. This is not a fancy hotel if that is what you are looking for...however, there is a great little coffee shop just across the street that we go and get early morning java and head down the street to Shaws Cove and sit on the beach and watch the sun come up....every room has a beautiful view of the ocean and it is very old and nostalgic.....we don't spend our day's in the room, so room luxury is not what we love...we love the smell of jasmine in the courtyard and the beautiful views and the great coffee and short jaunt to the beach.....I could afford to stay in any place in Laguna, but this cute little place is our special place and will continue to stay there every year that we go.
