Holiday Inn Laguna Beach

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 13, 2012

We've stayed at a few places in Laguna Beach, and I have to say this Holiday Inn really exceeded my expectations. Great location, right in the heart of the village. Right across the street from the ocean, and within close walking distance to all the great shops and restaurants. We stayed in a room on the second floor overlooking the pool. Unfortunately the pool was closed for maintenance the week of our stay, but the manager called us a week prior to our visit to let us know. Once we got there, they said we could use the pools across the street at Pacific Edge Hotel so it all worked out just fine. The rooms were very clean, and the hotel itself is very pretty. Beautiful wrought iron balconies and lush tropical plants all around. Very nice. Also liked having the Ralph's grocery store right across the street... Oh, and the Orange Inn, too. Looks like a little hole-in-the-wall type place, but the food is excellent! We loved getting the freshly squeezed OJ every morning, and for lunch we tried their chicken salad sandwich - delicious! Anyway, the Holiday Inn Laguna Beach is a great place to stay. Wish they didn't charge $12 a day to park, but that seems to be pretty standard for most hotels these days.

I stayed at this Holiday Inn about a month ago and was so thrilled as my expectations of the place were very much exceeded. It is beautiful, elegant but also very "homey". The best part was the staff and how friendly and relaxed they were.

After leaving and heading back to Canada, I realized I left my keys in my room. The hotel was so kind and understanding; they mailed them back to me.

Very happy with the stay. Would recommend it to anyone.

Pretty standard Holiday Inn in a fantastic location. Lovely pool area, friendly front desk staff, clean rooms. Note that there is a steep parking charge ($12/day), and the rooms do not have safes. Easy drive from John Wayne airport. There's a grocery store next door and easy beach access right across the street.

We booked a room for one night and ended up staying for 2. Christian at the front desk was very helpful and knowledgable about restaurants, parking, etc... The Hotel was very nice and clean, rooms were great and location is perfect! We plan on making this our new vacation spot!

I stayed at the Holiday Inn for 5 nights in late September. My room was on the second floor near the parking lot. Checkin was effortless. The location of this hotel is great, right across the street from beach access and right next to Ralph's. Every morning before I went into the office, I would take my coffee and walk a block or two on the beach. The parking lot is conveniently located right behind the hotel. There is a restaurant/bar on the 1st floor, nice location to have a nightcap. The only thing I was not thrilled with were that the windows from the room overlook the hallway/courtyard and did not open (as far as I know). If I go back to Laguna Beach, I would definitely consider this hotel again.

Room Tip: I liked being near the parking lot on the second floor

We stayed at the Holiday Inn the last weekend in Sept. We had a horrible room at another hotel and Michael at the front desk was wonderful and organized a couple of rooms for us. He was so helpful and kind. The rooms were nice (maybe a bit small), but the courtyard with all of the beautiful plants and flowers made up for it. The pool is salt water which was fantastic. The hotel is located within walking distance of everything and it is quiet in the rooms. There is a awesome breakfast spot across the street with great coffee, homemade pastries, and yummy eggs. Ralph's market is next door and Taco Bell for a quick burrito is across the street. The beach is just a quick 5 min. walk away. We absolutely loved this hotel!

Room Tip: Upstairs overlooking the pool is the best!
