Right near the free shuttle line and a short walk to the beach, it was not just another hotel chain. The hotel is very supportive of local artists and all the art you see on the property is for sale. I like that the hotel wants to be part of the community and it shows a certain mindset that I wish that more businesses had.

Room was comfortable with a mini-fridge and microwave. Jacuzzi jetted bathtub. Everything was clean and decorated nicely. The outdoors jacuzzi and pool are a bit small but with the ocean only 3 minutes away, it's not a big deal. I would suggest this hotel if you don't want to deal with the hustle and bustle of being smack dab in the middle of town but want to be near enough to enjoy the town if you wish. Staff was very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Take an older friend and get the senior rate. Go off season if you can.

Staff was very helpful re: places to eat, catching the free shuttle to the pageant, especially the return. Shuttle drop-off is an easy walk across the street. Hotel was clean and affordable. Yet it really does need a renovation and upgrade. Towels, while exceptionally big and heavy, were a bit thread bare. Decor is reminiscent of the 70s. Furnishings are oversized for the size of the room. The AC was quite loud as it first starts up in each cycle making it impossible to sleep unless set to fan only. The pool was closed for maintenance. It really is a Motel as another guest mentioned with friendly, helpful staff and value for the money. I personally like a bit more comfort so I'll choose something different next time I'm in the area.

Thank you for the review. As a small family owned hotel, we do our best to keep our rates below the big chains. With only 28 rooms to comfort our guests with, we do our best to keep the maintenance up. We do apologize for your inconveniences, and we work continually on keeping things up to par. We hope you enjoyed Laguna Beach!

Fantastic hotel just one block from the beach and 10 minutes walk to Laguna, good size pool and a small hot tub, Rob on reception greater us and we arrived early but he got our room ready in 20 minutes to allow us to check in. Hotel is clean and quiet (if you are not at the front on the highway) and free under ground parking was very convenient. All in all great value hotel for Laguna I would recommend and will return next time I'm there.

The Art Hotel is best thought of as a nice motel with a few extras, on the outskirts of Laguna, at a great price. If you want to visit the beach, and Laguna night life, and don't mind walking, this place will save you cash, and be a pleasent stay. Off street parking is free, and the staff is friendly. The closest beaches are across the highway and down the hill, just 10 min walk. The center of Laguna is one mile. We strolled the beach, then strolled to town for dinner, then took a cab back to the hotel. Later we enjoyed the very secluded hot tub on the second floor just next to our room. I will certainly stay here again on our next visit to Laguna. If you walk to town, dont walk along the highway. Choose a street one block above or below for a quieter walk through neighborhoods.

Room Tip: The rooms on the second floor in the back are a short, private walk to the hot tub.

The hotel is roughly one kilometer from downtown but very close to nice beaches. We spent here two nights from Saturday to Monday. It took some time to understand each other with the hotel staff when we called them to book our room, but once there they were very kind and helpful. There is no breakfast in the hotel but in walking distance there are many restaurants, also indicated in the hotel brochure we found in our room. The room was nice and clean, with a small balcony. We had a good stay.
