I have been staying at the Laguna Hills Lodge for several years and it keeps getting better and better each time I go. I first found it in a AAA book back in the 90's and have always been pleased with the price, service, appearance and location over the years. We just finished a stay there from March 21-25 and the property's major spring planting is in process. The grounds are beautiful with many fragrant and colorful flowers and plants. The rooms are comfortable and were all remodeled a few years ago. The pool area has an exercise/weight room, a hot tub and a sauna. The pool has a mechanical chair that can help disabled people get into the pool - first time I have ever seen this type of equipment. The location is a couple of blocks off of I-5 and one can be headed north to Los Angeles or south to San Diego in a few minutes. We usually fly into John Wayne (Orange County) Airport and It is an easy fifteen minutes drive from the airport on I-405 and I-5. It takes about 10 minutes to drive from the property to the town of Laguna Beach and the main road that leads directly to it starts just a half block away. A large shopping mall with Macy's, etc. is two blocks away and a major grocery store is about five minutes away. Many restaurants, both major fast food and locally flavored are also with minutes. A moderately priced golf course is three exits south on I-5. One of the best features is the morning breakfast which is served every morning. It is staffed by two employees and there is pretty much everything you might want there short of waffles, bacon and scrambled eggs. It is a great way to start the day. Whether it is a place to retreat to at the end of the day of playing or a place to work from on a business trip this property will not disappoint. They have room deals on Facebook and there was a great deal on rates recently through Southwest Airlines when I made my flight reservation. My only gripe is that they like to stick to the 11:00 AM check out time although with begging and pleading I have been able to stretch it to 11:30. I realize that they need the time to get the rooms ready for the new guests, especially when they are going to be full or close to it but 12:00 would work better for me.
