“New Owner 2005 Making Great Changes!”
Reviewed 16 February 2006

We stayed at America's Best Inn Laguna Beach because of another review that said it was a hidden gem. We were a little apprehensive since the price was so good on <Lagunabeach>, but we decided to go for it. We are very glad we did.
We had a room that had a view as good as a condo on Maui. We were just a block and a half from a very nice smaller beach without a lot of people.
The new owner is making all kinds of improvements every week. He has also lowered the prices from what they were before. He bends over backwards to make sure your stay is enjoyable.
We highly recommend this unique place. We stayed there to go to Disneyland. It was an easy trip of about a half hour. It was much better than staying around Anaheim, and much less expensive. And we could go to the beach on the days we did not go to Disneyland. Much more of a vacation instead of just staying in a hotel.

A pleasent surprise to find a 2 storey building with a lift, close to the main centre, clean room and very helpful staff. A deceptive exterior hides a real gem.

A friend and I decided to do a quick weekend getaway to Laguna last minute. The standard Laguna Beach hotels were all booked. I took a chance on the Best Inn, with very low expectations, and with the thought...if I hate it I can always go home. The rate of $78 per night (for Laguna Beach!!) made it seem improbable. BUT, we were pleasantly surprised first by the covered parking area, then being greeted by a very friendly staff member. We were given a nice, clean room with a fridge, microwave and of course TV. The pool is almost an oversize jacuzzi but the place is one street over from one of Laguna's many beaches. The main drag is a short drive away (or if you want to walk it, its about 2 miles or so south). Next morning, expecting just coffee, I was again surprised by the offering of bagels, cream cheese, assorted pastries, cereals and milk. Juice, coffee and tea were also provided. You can't beat the price for what you get. I will absolutely be going back the next time I need a sanity-check weekend. Cheers
