I've come to Laguna many times, staying at various motels, bombs, etc, trying to get the trifecta of location, value, comfort. Was impressed by reviews, but not but first-hand experience. I can handle average but would have to rate this less then that. I had a two-queen room with slice of ocean view during my 3-day May visit. The room was drab, decoration outdated and worn---clean though! Continental breakfast really just an apple and packaged bear claw or some sort. Didn't even bother with the coffee. Maintenance was lacking in bathroom and exterior locations. Pool/hot tub small and really not all that inviting. The bed was comfortable and the hospitality friendly and helpful. I thought about booking another place after the first night but chalked it up to experience instead. Oh well.

Had a great stay at the Art Hotel. Lovely comfortable hotel. Very helpful and friendly staff. Even when we had checked out the staff lent us towels for the beach to use that day to return when we had finished. The Art is in an amazing location and the closest beach access to the hotel leads you to a little cove on the beach which was beautiful and very quiet. Very close to restaurant and shops. Would defiantly stay here again.

I haven't stayed at a motor hotel in about twenty-five years, but I took a risk on this one, because the location can't be beat. It's an old sixties place, kept up as well as possible. There's a slight odor of cigarette smoke left over from decades ago, and the a/c is like a swamp cooler, but the location is perfect--just above Main Beach. The walls are decorated in murals and original art, lending a charm and a realistic quality to this place that is rare and oddly comforting. Had a great night and a comfortable stay.

Room Tip: Call Gail. Ask for a room with a view or a room for your pet. :)

Spent a week at this amazing hotel!!! Prices are very reasonable, the service is amazing!
Gail is a woman who makes you feel welcome as soon as you park your car and come to the
front desk!!! My lights would not go off in my car- Gail to the rescue!!! I was loaded with
groceries to put in my refrigerator - Gail to the rescue!!!! She also tells you what is where in the
area with many brochures to give out!!! The pool is wonderful and you cannot beat the
location of this hotel. A 7 minute drive to the beach - I felt so much at home at this hidden treasure of a hotel!!! Also, my room was
very clean, and also cleaned each and every morning! internet in the lobby!! What more
could a girl ask for?? I would rate the staff, hotel, location and Gail a 10++++++. Don't miss staying here - a super treat!!!!

Room Tip: I had a room on the second floor with a balcony facing the pool - could not have been happier!!!

Stayed here at the Art hotel for 3 nights while in town for the Pagent of the Masters. The place is nicely appointed with most all regular hotel amenities and them some. It is close to downtown with all of the Laguna coves and beaches north of Main beach within walking distance. Main Beach is only 1 mile and the city tram picks you up just accross the street from the hotel. Gail was very accommadating with our need to check in after 10:00 pm as we drove 9 hours to get there. I have visited Laguna Beach at least a hundred times over the years and I think this is the best hotel in Laguna Beach at it's price point. It is a small property (28 rooms) compared to some of the other area hostelries and is quaint in its own right. Off season rate are even more affordable. Will definately be back.

Room Tip: Small balcanies afford a view of the ocean if you want a room with a view or are a smoker.
