Visited Best Western in September 2013 with my girlfriend and another couple during a road trip through CA.

Booked a night in advance and we're not disappointed.

Located around a 10/20 minute walk from the town, this Best Western offers a lovely roof top pool and jacuzzi, with a spacious sun deck with sea views.

Thoroughly relaxing and a suitable location. 4 stars!

For sure there are more fancy options in Laguna Beach but this option is perfect if you plan to stay longer. I stayed 12 days and it was perfect because of the value and the location. It is not near dowtown but it is walking distance anyway (I had a car btw, which I recommend if you want to go to Dana Point or Newport beach). Just accross the street there is a entry for the beach. Many stores and restaurant just 4 blocks away.

Room Tip: Do not pay extra money for a partial ocean view. You have a FULL view is you actually go to the beac...

The Hotel is in a great proximity to the beach, and the staff was nice/friendly. Our room was nice with a flatscreen TV, but smaller than I expected. The bed was lumpy and uncomfortable. Unfortunately my husband found the hide-a-bed more comfortable. We had a nice partial view of the ocean, but the balcony could have used some sort of awning to keep the sun and heat off of it. :P The spa tub in the room was fabulous! It was so nice after walking up and down The shops and beach to sit and soak with a glass of wine. :) I was not impressed with breakfast, but we weren't expecting anything fancy for free :P

My family had just one night to spend in Laguna Beach, and we searched and searched for a beachside hotel that had decent reviews and that didn't cost $500 a night. We settled on the Best Western. The good things: its a "99 step" walk to a wonderful beach, they provide towels/chairs/beach toys, have free wi-fi, free breakfast and convenient free parking. The room was clean. We ate breakfast from a lovely sky deck with a nice view. The disappointments: the room is tiny, dark and very dated. The beds were low and saggy. Our "shower" was actually a 1980's sunken tub that was retrofitted as a shower! Very cheesy. I know it's a beach location, but there were constantly tiny ants in our bathroom. The front desk staff was not particularly friendly. Anywhere other than Laguna Beach, this "motel" would cost $69 a night!
The lowdown, if you have your heart set on a nice stay in Laguna Beach, bite the bullet and stay and Surf and Sand. If you are merely looking for a room to sleep in, you can stay at the Best Western for about $200 a night. Someone smart should buy this property and renovate and turn it into something special! It's a great location with plenty of potential.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room and they will put you away from the street.

This is an affordable version of a nice Laguna Beach hotel. It is well appointed with pool, jacuzzi, breakfast, in-room spa bath. I wouldn't call the room spacious, but it was a decent size. Everything was updated and clean. Although not exactly downtown, I liked the location. There were plenty of restaurants, galleries, and the beach all within walking distance. My only complaint, and it's not really the hotel's fault, is that we opted for the ocean-facing room, and we did have a bit of a view, but the noise was so loud coming off PCH that the balcony was almost unuseable. We would go up to the 4th floor deck to relax outside instead. So consider that before paying more for the oceanside. This breakfast, like many of these free hotel breakfasts now, was handy and serviceable, but not much more. The staff was attentive and helpful. I loved the decor of the property, it made the stay seem much more private and stylish than many mid-range hotel/motel locations. Also, parking was free and easily accessed which is no small thing in Laguna.

Room Tip: Rooms on the Coast Highway side are noisy, but may have an ocean view.

Overall, hotel was cute, clean, spacious rooms, comfortable beds, convenient,/free parking, and nice & helpful staff. Walk to town was a little far from the main beach and downtown area, breakfast was somewhat lacking particularly in area of fresh fruit and pastries, and pool was a little small.

Very comfortable room with a great spa to relax in after a day of walking about Laguna. Clean, perfect location, and the friendliest staff. Parking was steps from the lobby and convenient. I would definitely stay there again!
