“Great Deal in Laguna”
Reviewed July 30, 2010

Very clean and friendly staff. In the middle of it all and reasonable prices for the beach. Just a short drive to excellent shopping, and huntington beach. Laguna beach is just across the street. Breakfast is also included. Very pretty area with great food.

We randomly selected this hotel as we arrived by car late at night without a place to stay. We found the rooms a little pricy ($149 per night), but I am not sure what the rates are at other hotels in the area, so it might be standard.

Rooms were nice, and each had a "spa bath" installed, which we did not use. There was a bit of noise from the street. The complimentary breakfast was nice, and we enjoyed the pool area as well as the beach, which was close by.

Downtown Laguna Beach is within walking distance, but not really close.

If I were to go back to Laguna Beach, I would check out other options first to see if there are better options, as we felt that the "spa" part did not give us much value.

We were very pleased with all that this hotel has to offer. From free parking to the fourth floor terrace. There are jacuzzi tubs..along with regular tubs in every room. Our balcony faced Bluebird Canyon Road with a view of South Coast Highway and a small glimpse of the ocean to our left. The rooms were very clean, beds were comfortable, and maid service was timely. Our room was on the 3rd floor right next to the pool which worked out great for the kids. The free breakfast included bagels, waffles, toast, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, etc. The staff was friendly and helpful, and as the hotel advertises, the beach is right across the street and within walking distance of restaraunts, and other attractions. During the summer Laguna Beach offers free trolley rides, which we took full advantage of. My only recommendations to the hotel would be more lighting around the pool/jacuzzi area or even lighting in the pool at night., and the only slight negative I found was traffic noise from Bluebird Canyon, but after a night we adjusted well. We had a great stay and would return again in a second!

I had chose this hotel because of the beach access 99 steps to be exact, It is very close to a small quite beach area, mostly just some locals and a few surfers. it was not very crowded the entire week we stayed, however New Port Beach, and Huntington beach was a short drive down the PCH was more like what you would expect a beach in Southern California to look like. I was vacationing with my thirteen year old daughter and her best friend for a week in California so we had to check out all the local beaches, I had booked a deluxe room with two queen beds, the room was a little small, and the door separating the bed and bath room was a half slotted shutter door, not a great room if your traveling with non family or a close friend, but we made due. The rooms were very clean the beds quite comfy, with plenty of pillows. The continental breakfast was basic but very good. The free wi-fi was great and free hotel parking was a bonus. there was some close restaurants, and fast food places just a short walk way Gina's pizza was very good, and a Ralph's grocery store which was not very far also if you want to save on gas which was not cheap. The pool was nice and hot tub next to the pool was great on cool evenings, the sun deck was nice and decorated very well, all in all it was a great trip and a nice hotel.

The location of This hotel was really great, Laguna is such a nice place to be there is alot of really nice shopping that was cheaper than we expected. Lots of art galleries and nice restaurants we really enjoyed our time there and will definitely try to get back to there. The hotel was alright, it was definitely decent the rooms were a little to dark and ours smelled very strongly of mold. The spa aspect of the hotel was a little confusing to us, There were large tubs in the rooms that would have been very nice if it wasn't such a struggle to get in and out of them. It was really sort of scary trying to get in and out when everything was wet and slippery, so we did not really like that.
They had a generic complimentary breakfast that was good. The roof top of the hotel was nice and a great place to relax. It would be a nice place to stay if you love the beach and shopping because its in the center of everything.

Was attending a surprise birthday party for a good friend,and this hotel was right across the street, from the restaurant, and based on the reviews from Trip Advisor, I booked it.

Not a great place to stay for sure. We could hear almost every word our neighbors said. I did not feel safe there, as when checking in, the police were there as a T.V. had been stolen from a room. This was a red flag. Getting dressed for the party, some one knocks on our door, and not opening the door of course, I asked who is it, and this man replies" "your neigbor from upstairs, and are you the ones having all the fun, I smell "pot"!!!!" My husband than came ot the door, and told him to get lost that we don''t smoke anything!!!! This is at 5:00 in the eviening. There is also THREE locks on the door, so beware!!!! Couldn't wait to leave, and it is not cheap, because of it being in Laguna Beach.I will never stay there again.

Being not a Best Western fan, this really made me very wary of ever booking another Best Western. It looked nice on the web site. A positive, is it was clean, and was trying to be a nice hotel, but missed the mark for me, and did not feel safe there

My husband and I spent two nights here. The room was beautiful and had many amenities, but the highway noise was unbelievable. I thought it would quiet down at night, but no such luck. If we came to Laguna again I would definitely book a room on the ocean side of the highway.
