“a very pleasant stay”
Reviewed 4 February 2012

Even though this is an older property, it looks to be well maintained and the location is very convenient. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was comfortable and quiet. It's situated on the main street of Laguna, but far enough away from the noise and traffic of downtown. It's within walking distance of many restaurants and shops. There's a restaurant on the property for breakfast, but it's rather cave-like, so we decided to walk downtown and enjoy the perfect weather.

This was a great little hotel. It is within walking distance of most of the shops and restaurants and access to public beach is just across the street. The rooms were great the pool is verry private and quite. All the employes were friendly and very helpful.

This hotel is great, the rooms are not new but they are well appointed and kept very clean. Located on the south side of Laguna Beach the hotel is close to most shops and there is a supermarket across the road. No real view from the hotel itself but there is a great atmosphere. We were upgraded to a suite on the third floor up the rear of the hotel. Not having a lift is one of the only drawbacks. The suits are huge with great bathrooms and a fireplace. Staff are friendly and have good knowledge of the local area. Would stay here again.

Room Tip: Make sure you are a priority rewards club member and this will help your chances of an upgrade.

Other hotels in this area tend to be expensive, filthy or both but not this one. Clean, comfortable and a great staff! Free movie theater popcorn and lemonade, coffee, soda and bottled water for guests. Less than 10 minutes to the main beach and the smaller Cleo Street beach is across the street!

We stayed there with friends in November 2011, The hotel was very nice and conveniently located at the Laguna Beach, just across the street from the beach. The rooms are around a courtyard with a nice pool. There are complimentary drinks and some snacks (pop corn) at the reception area. The parking is behind the hotel and is free of charge. The rooms are ok. The staff was ok too. What they call "fitness center" is just a small room with a couple of machines :-)

Overall it's a nice hotel if you don't expect much.

Location is good, a short walk from both downtown Laguna Beach and Aliso Creek. Staff were friendly and efficient in the most part. The most upsetting part of our stay however was not being told their restaurant \ lounge is open until 2am and turns into a dance \ music bar with very loud music. Our room was right next to this so we could not sleep as a result - we were moved to another room the next day as the hotel was quiet.

The hotel walls are thin and so noise from adjacent rooms is very audible. There are aircon \ extractor fans fitted to all of the upper level rooms. This equipment is very old as it rattles, whines and generally makes a lot of noise for 18 hours per day.

The rooms themselves were adequate if a little tired. Cleanliness was OK. WIFI was free and decent quality. There are no in room safes but you leave your valubles at reception. Parking is available for a fee - $10 per day. For this area, that was good value as most hotels were valet park only at $20 to $30. Pool area was OK in a nice courtyard. Free tea \ coffee \ water & Pepsi and fresh popcorn were available in the lobby which was a nice touch.
