“Nice hotel with a lot of amenities”
Reviewed July 17, 2014

We spent one night at the hotel along with three other couples. We arrived early and were given rooms right away. I had found a special rate on line and it was honored ($219 vs.$254 we had reserved for) This was appreciated. I did not read reviews of the hotel, and we had a room in the 100's, first floor which was on the street side. It was somewhat noisy during the night, but we ran the air on fan only to muffle it. Ask for a room away from the street! Our room was very nice and comfortable. We spent a great deal of our time at the Festival of the Masters, Sawdust festival and Pageant, but did have time for our group to meet on the deck overlooking the beach for a glass of wine. The breakfast was very nice, well presented and good for being included in the room rate. Staff was very accommodating!

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the street (South Coast Highway)

We stayed here for a large family reunion and had a wonderful stay. We found the property is well maintained with nice landscaping, pleasant pool, and deck with an ocean view. The staff could not have been more accommodating to all of us, from the front desk to housekeeping. The breakfast buffet is plentiful and has something for everyone's tastes. The hotel's close proximity to downtown Laguna, the free shuttle stop and the beach made it a perfect location. The free parking and WiFi are an extra bonus.

Room Tip: I would recommend asking for a room that does not face Pacific Coast Highway as that is quite loud.

The check in person was very nice. We went up to the room and it was under a stairwell and very dark and small. I called the front desk and he said there was nothing they could do. They were also replacing light fixtures in the hallways. Boxes, step ladders and Styrofoam was everywhere. I thought we were to be informed if work was going on. For $220 I do not feel we got our moneys worth.

When we arrived, we realized our bathroom was separated from the bathroom by only swinging doors which didn't stay shut. There were 3 of us in the room and this situation was not going to be acceptable. We called the front desk and they said the would see what they could do. We went out exploring and the manager called to change our room. It was actually an upgrade with a partial ocean view. The only strange thing about it was the jacuzzi in the open room. The only way you could use it would be in your bathing suit. The staff was very nice. The pillows were horrible. The tram stop was right next to the hotel and it was free and took you all over Laguna. The beach was actually 130 steps from the hotel (at least with my steps)! All in all, a very nice location. Don 't miss Las Brisas! Wonderful food and beautiful views, or the Sawdust Festival

Visited Best Western in September 2013 with my girlfriend and another couple during a road trip through CA.

Booked a night in advance and we're not disappointed.

Located around a 10/20 minute walk from the town, this Best Western offers a lovely roof top pool and jacuzzi, with a spacious sun deck with sea views.

Thoroughly relaxing and a suitable location. 4 stars!

For sure there are more fancy options in Laguna Beach but this option is perfect if you plan to stay longer. I stayed 12 days and it was perfect because of the value and the location. It is not near dowtown but it is walking distance anyway (I had a car btw, which I recommend if you want to go to Dana Point or Newport beach). Just accross the street there is a entry for the beach. Many stores and restaurant just 4 blocks away.

Room Tip: Do not pay extra money for a partial ocean view. You have a FULL view is you actually go to the beac...

The Hotel is in a great proximity to the beach, and the staff was nice/friendly. Our room was nice with a flatscreen TV, but smaller than I expected. The bed was lumpy and uncomfortable. Unfortunately my husband found the hide-a-bed more comfortable. We had a nice partial view of the ocean, but the balcony could have used some sort of awning to keep the sun and heat off of it. :P The spa tub in the room was fabulous! It was so nice after walking up and down The shops and beach to sit and soak with a glass of wine. :) I was not impressed with breakfast, but we weren't expecting anything fancy for free :P
