Amazingly, I have spent about 100 nights here over the past year out of choice, and I look forward to coming back in the new year already. It's perfectly positioned for a wide range of great restaurants in Laguna. Getting to Newport, Dana Point, Irvine and airports is really easy. Staff friendly, polite and reserved. The free coffee, coke, water and popcorn (!) is much appreciated. While there are no sea views, do not let this put you off. My 15 year old daughter more than enjoyed the palm trees over the swimming poll that the bast majority of rooms overlook.

Everything works - maybe the fridges in the rooms are noisy, but many are in the US.

I stay in a wide range of hotels at all price ranges, but this is the best balance between cost, comfort and position.Highly recommended from someone who spends halk their life in hotels!

Great little hotel. Very clean and close to everything in "downtown" Laguna. I love staying here and do it whenever I can. The employees are great. The Little Italian place downstairs is excellent and the rooms are just the right size.

Loved this Hotel! Don't let it's street corner location fool you it's beautiful inside. Polite staff very accommodating. The room was very nice , clean and comfortable. The courtyard was very tropical and quaint. Within walking distance to downtown. Just a stones throw from the beach. Grocery store across the street was convenient . The hotel was affordable and very nice for the price. Last but not least my favorite feature was free soft drinks and popcorn in the lobby

Stayed here last year for a business trip and had been meaning to do a write on this property. Excellent and very accommodating staff. It was nice each day to walk out from the room and look over the pool area. Such a great view to start the day. The next time I plan a vacation for the West Coast this will be one of the stayover locations. Can't wait to visit again.

I stayed here on a business trip with other co-workers but I am definitely planning on coming back for more fun! We were only there one night, but it was very comfortable. Rooms were clean and very cute. Best part - right across the street from the beach. Close to restaurants and shops. Staff was friendly. Wish I could have stayed longer!
