“Hard to find a hot tub in Laguna Beach!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2012

Love this hotel! Had a 2nd floor corner room facing the street with a partial ocean view from the tiny "secret" smoking balcony, a super comfortable king size bed, large bathroom with a fridge and a heavenly 2 person jacuzzi in the room. Terrific breakfast included, coffee 24/7, helpful staff, free parking, great location. Would have liked a microwave to warm the sake' but they do not have any. Easily the best hotel value in Laguna Beach.

Thank you for your wonderful words about our very special hotel. We are so happy you have discovered some of the many liitle "secrets", such as some of our economical "non-view" rooms may actually have a bit of a partial ocean view! Did you have a fresh and hot "make-your-own waffle"? They are SO tastey!

My husband and I just returned from a wonderful stay. The room was quite affordable priced and right in the center of Laguna Beach. We had a view of the ocean from our room and the rooftop deck was quite enjoyable. We slept quite well and the bed was comfortable. The whirpool tubs are huge and make for quite a relaxing trip. The hotel also offers free breakfast, free wireless internet and free parking. Makes this place quite a deal! Enjoy!

Thank you so much for your review! We hope you had an opportunity to be on the rooftop during sunset. The colors of the horizon over Catalina Island this time of year can be amazing.....

We stayed here for 2 days in November for a birthday. They did upgrade our room to a roof top room which was nice. The roof top patio area is great and quite. Nice to have breakfast up there. The room was only average but was a good price. I didn't find the bed to be very comfortable and it was noisy (squeaky). My biggest complaint was the carpeting. It was bad. It looked filthy. I made sure I always had shoes on. They did have a spa tub but we didn't use it. The shower is in the tub itself so if you want to shower, it is very difficult to get in and out of the tub to shower and difficult to stand in the tub to shower. Very small refrigerator so don't plan on putting a lot things in there. The location is good but is about a 20 min walk from the main downtown beach and shopping area. Everything is paid parking downtown and it is difficult to find a parking spot. It is nice to be able to walk across the street and be on the beach. The staff was very friendly and the breakfast was ok. We had left another hotel that had a much better breakfast in downtown San Diego so I guess we were a little spoiled. Can't beat the price. Just which the bed was more comfortable and the carpet was cleaner.

Thank you for your comments. We hope you had the opportunity to report the carpet to the hotel staff with th specific room number so we could investigate. With so much traffic to and fro the beach, we try and keep them clean but always appreciate a heads up. While some rooms do have a combination spa tub and shower, other rooms have them completely separate in the bedroom while still having a regular tub and shower in the bathroom itself. Don't forget to explore the many exciting dining and retail shops surrounding the hotel. Sometimes the best places to go are away from the hustle and bustle of "downtown". And with our free parking (one space per room), you never have to worry about finding a parking space and searching for quarters. Thanks again!

The Best Wester in Laguna is one of those hotels where you stay when you have no plans on staying in your room for long, only to sleep and shower. The hotel is clean, and the staff was friendly. The location is slightly away from the "busy" area of town, but that could be a good thing. Mozambique Restaurant is next door. They have great food and live entertainment nightly. Also, you MUST visit Crystal Cove State Park which is a 10 minute drive away, and bring your sneakers. The price at Best Western was very right, especially since they have a rooftop pool!

This place is deserving of more than a 3 star rating! The rooms are gorgeous, with a HUGE spa bathtub. They have many amenities that you wouldn't even have at a Hilton or Hyatt. The rooms are very well decorated, beds are comfy with down comforters and nice sheets, the TVs are updated and large. The breakfast served included eggs, bagels, toast, fruit, yogurt, fresh waffles, cereal, juice, and coffee. It was very good. The employees were very friendly and helpful, we even received a free upgrade upon check-in. The hotel is across the street from the beach, a little bit of a walk from the main shopping area in Laguna Beach but near many restaurants. We definitely would stay here again!

Room Tip: ask for a room on the 3rd or 4th floor. they are quieter.

Aren't the king-sized whirlpool spas for two terrific? What a great way to relax and unwind given all the stress one encounters in our lives today. Thank goodness we have Laguna Beach and the BEST WESTERN PLUS Laguna Brisas Spa Hotel! Please come and stay for another visit soon and thank YOU for your comments.

I was told by a company I was visiting to choose the Best Western as others had enjoyed their stay. The staff were very friendly and helpful on arrival. The hotel has a large carpark underneath which is very convenient as it is situated on the main road through Laguna Beach and their isn't much parking on the roads available. My room was on the 4th floor with a bit of a terrace with seating and access to the roof top pool. My room was facing the main road but I could not hear much traffic noise at all and had views of the sea. The room was large, with a large bathroom and spa bath with a large comfortable bed. I would stay here again the next time I visit as mostly of all this is good value for money.

Room Tip: Floor 4 (top floor) has the terrace and access to the pool with sea views.
