Right on the beach, charming hotel within walking distance to everything. Coffee in the AM, Wine in the PM outside on the roof! Make sure to get an oceanfront room. Great stay in a fabulous location. Surf was just fine in April!

The hotel has an excellent location right on Laguna beach with just a few flights of steps down to the beach. It was only a short walk to all the shops and restaurants, so everything you need is on your doorstep. The hotel had a nice relaxed feel and the staff were very friendly and helpful. There was free coffee and tea in Reception each morning. We were surprised to be charged $29 per night for car parking and we were charged $63 for dry cleaning a martial arts kimono which seemed excessive for what it was. The room was well equipped and had a Starbucks coffee filter machine. We stayed in a room right next to be pool which was very noisy in the evening with people in the pool and also people using the back gate as a short cut in and out of the hotel. The pool did close around 9pm so it was relatively quiet through the night. We would stay here again but in a different room and definitely wouldn't get anything dry cleaned!

Our family stayed at the Inn during our week long vacation in southern California. The hotel has incredible views and easy access to the beach. The pool area was clean and nicely appointed with relaxing chaise lounges. While the room was on the smaller side, there was ample space and we had access to a nice private patio area by the pool.
It's a great hotel, in a beautiful location but the personal touches and services by the hotel staff guarantee an enjoyable stay for all guests. The wine tasting on the rooftop terrace was incredible. The warm cookies...enjoyed by the kids and a fair share of adults..just perfect. Even complimentary coffee to start your day! The hotel staff is extremely professional, friendly and knowledgeable about the area.
We will be back!

This was our first visit to Laguna Beach. We normally do our beach vacations in Miami & Siesta Key so we were not sure what to expect in CA. We found The Inn At Laguna Beach on Trip Advisor & we booked a 3 nt. stay. After checking into our room we noted it was small but nicely appointed. We noticed that the carpet was wet the entire length of the bed side & smelled quite bad. After requesting to be moved we were informed that the hotel was sold out and they could move us the following day. We withstood the 1st nt & then moved to an upgraded ocean view suite the next day. They also comped our 1st nt stay. I say they more than met our expectations. Room was beautiful with a breathtaking view. The rooms/linens were very clean. The bath has a nice shower with an external large sink area. Coffee maker with coffee & tea provided in room and also each morning freshly made coffee and tea are in the lobby. In the evening they have a complementary wine reception on the terrace and fresh cookies in the lobby. Very nice touch! The heated pool is nice/clean but simple. The pool furniture is in need of an update and it would be nice to have music piped in. I may be spoiled by the lavish pools in the Miami area. The pool is very clean and it was quite relaxing without all the hoopla of SOBE. The beach area is okay but not the cleanest which does not reflect upon the hotel.The hotel does provide beach chairs and towels. Restaurants and shops are located within walking distance. Las Brisas is next door and has a nice outdoor bar area. Overall our stay was truly memorable and the entire staff outstanding. I would definitely stay and highly recommend The Inn At Laguna Beach to everyone planning a visit to the area.

Room Tip: Upgrade to ocean view!

Green Features: It's nice that they offer the option with linens and they use EF practices on the entire grounds.

The Inn at Laguna Beach is a great starting point if you want access to beautiful beaches and great shops and restaurants.
The hotel itself is clean and modern. Rooms are well appointed. Staff is friendly and helpful. There is coffee available in the morning and wine and appetizers in the evening. If you can afford it and like the sound of the ocean opt for an ocean view room. Some have balcony's which is a nice touch and a lovely way to read the paper in the morning. There is a pool and our room did overlook it, however at night we did not hear any noise.
We picked the Inn because it is dog friendly. Even better is the fact that they do not charge extra for having your dog with you. We haven't found that to normally be the case. Don't expect "pet extra's", although I think there is a package available if you don't want to bring along beds and dishes.
I would stay again at the Inn at Laguna Beach for all the reasons listed above.

Room Tip: We were in the mid 400's block and overlooked the pool.

Just had a two day business meeting for 15 (and their plus ones) at I@LB. There can't be a better location and the staff was great to work with throughout the entire several month planning process--I feel like Jonathan Go and Lindsy Walker are new (very helpful and patient) friends!

Everyone I encountered was friendly and in the event of any glitch, they were immediately responsive. Of course, they could not solve the problem of all meeting participants wanting the ocean view seats around the conference table, but, oh well...

If I had my choice, I would never go into a big hotel ballroom/meeting room again!

Room Tip: Room 406 was perfect. There is some construction going on right next to the south end which was a...

Laguna Beach is a breathtaking backdrop to this amazing hotel. Exceeded all our expectations. I could have sat on my deck overlooking the beach all day! Room 545 has the most amazing beach views, I think it's even used for their brochures!!!

Some added perks amazing Starbucks coffee, wine tasting happy hour, and few steps from beach!
