“Honeymoon perfection”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 December 2013

We stayed here for 8 nights for our honeymoon. It was perfectly located. The staff were friendly and helpful. There were nice extras such as a wine hour every eve and fresh lemonade / biscuits. Also coffee in the morning. The rooms were cosy and it was nice going sleep hearing the waves.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 December 2013

We got a great rate for a sea view king and managed to upgrade for $14 a night to the sea view with juliet balcony - it was well worth it! There are some rooms which dont get the full brunt of passer bys but there is a public walk way right in front of the hotel which is a small hinderance but given the view - it is still well worth it if you can get it at a good rate.
The service was hit and miss - front desk were extremely helpful where as delivery people/bellboys were not very experienced, however, if you were like me, the good view and comfortable rooms (along with help from front desk) made this a truly enjoyable stay.
Definitely worth getting a room with a view of the beach/ocean.

Room Tip: Higher floors are definitely better (Away from the street traffic - though not a huge problem). Juli...

We stayed here in early/mid October for 3 days of our holidays. The hotel location is excellent, being no more than 2 mins walk from the beach or 5mins to the centre of Laguna.

The hotel was fairly expensive being only marginally cheaper than Surf & Sand further south, so you can imagine my disappointment/annoyance when we got an email 2 days before arriving to say the pool was being serviced and the whole pool area was out if use for 5 days!!! This was not made clear on booking (through their own website) only 7 days before we arrived.

Additionally the "Ocean View" room was at best partial ocean view. Two thirds were obscured by the hill/gardens and bushes. If they try to give you an ocean view room on the 2nd floor south (above the car-park) then be wary, and ask to see the room first.

In saying all this, we found the hotel friendly and the free rooftop wine at sunset is a winner too. We would go back but for the price, I'd want to be sure of what room I'd be getting, and would want free parking - their [self!] parking is the most I've ever spent on hotel parking, and that includes 5 star hotel valet services!!

Dear Captain_JD

Thank you for your comments regarding your recent visit to the Inn at Laguna Beach. I do apologize for the work on the pool during your stay, we tried to minimize the guest impact but in your case we clearly failed and for this I am truly sorry. I am happy that you found our location excellent as we are only steps to the Main Beach and a couple of blocks to the Village of Laguna which has over 40 great restaurants and many art galleries and retail outlets for shopping.

The next time you return to Laguna Beach please let me assist you with your reservation. Contact me directly so we can accommodate all of your needs, we look forward to welcoming you back.

Thank you

We were welcomed by Jonathon at the front desk and were checked in quickly. Our room reminded me of the Shutters in LA (but 1/3 the cost), spacious, open floor plan with terrace that overlooks ocean. The location is perfect minutes from restaurants, shopping and steps from the beach. I would highly recommend! A+ for friendly staff, beautiful room, unbelievable view and awesome price. Hidden Gem!

Stayed here for 2 evenings. It was sooo nice to open your sliding glass door and overlook the ocean. It was short walking distance to all the local art galleries, shops, and restaurant. Definitely made a 2 day getaway very enjoyable!!!

Room Tip: Definitely worth the extra $$ for the ocean view.

We have stayed at many other ocean front hotels in Laguna Beach. We have paid much more for getting much less. I feel I work very hard for my money. This is by far worth every penny. We shall return time and again. We spent thanksgiving here 2013. It was above and beyond our expectations.

Room Tip: acquire ocean front balcony. Utilize the daily wine and cookies offered

We stayed here for only 2 nights but wished that we could have stayed for a week.
A lovely hotel with an amazing view. Just wish that they had a bar on the roof as well as the free wine tasting! Everyone was very friendly and it had a lovely feel about it. We hope to return again next year.

Room Tip: The sea view rooms with a balcony are gorgeous.
