My wife and I spent two nights in one of the beach view rooms and it was very nice and comfortable The a/c unit probably knocked out any outside noises so no complaints there We met the owner who was running the office and he could not have been more accommodating

I needed a couple bandages for a scraped foot and he gave me several Super nice guy The location is a bit of a walk from downtown but the trolley stop is not far away or the walk is pretty nice too The beach is a down a short path to a public street then some stairs down to the ocean Beach chairs and a couple boogie boards are available free to guests, a nice surprise For the price this is really a nice option and if I were to come back to Laguna this would be the first place I would check for an available room Enjoyed our stayThanks

J. Levy

really great little place The beds were very comfortable and the pillows were nice white linens

Nice towels and awesome shower wish we could have stayed a little bit longer so we could have enjoyed the beach walk but had to be in overnight and go def recommend if you need a centrally located place in Laguna Beach had fridge and microwave

Antelmo Lara

Stayed for a quick 1 day trip with the family and I have to say unbeatable price you get absolutely everything with this place, the peace the view and the spacious room that is renovated Anyone looking to stay anywhere else look no further this place is definitely a little gem PS don’t go based on how the place looks from the outside I almost looked away while booking because of it and now I know it would’ve been a great mistake

Beau

Pros: Great location, beautiful venue (roof top), affordable, staff were beyond kind / gracious / helpful I celebrated a wedding here and loved everything except the roomCons: Rooms were small, ocean view was blocked by cables / electrical wire

No chair for ocean view window Nail sticking out of bed head board Mold growing on bathroom walls Small fridge that didn’t work No coffee maker available upon request They didn’t allow us to have early check in and made us wait until 4 pm for check in Despite this the room seemed very dirty other than the bedding changed

Maia Aman

Wonderful place to stay! Historic and quaint charm with laid-back vibe Staff were very friendly and everything was clean The location is amazing as it’s just steps from the beach with lots of dining and shops around

They have a coffee bar with pastries for breakfast in the morning and you can enjoy their rooftop with great ocean views

Mike Girardin

I have stayed at Casa Del Camino many times for both work and pleasure It’s a nice little hotel, with cozy rooms, friendly staff, and a good breakfast It’s close to many shops, the beach, and restaurants

Despite it’s proximity to the main street, it’s also relatively quiet Some of the rooms may be a little small for families, but for couples, it is idealThere’s a reason I keep going back I highly recommend

Audrey Luo

I was anxious when I booked the room I called the hotel on the day of arrival so I couldn’t see the picture of the room But It turned out to be one of the best experiences

It’s not a resort- I wish they have a pool or hot tub (that’s why I didn’t give 5 stars) But everything else was perfect The location can’t be better There were small grocery and good coffee shops It’s walking distance to the pier restaurant and the beautiful beach trail My room has “limited ocean view” and no balcony, but I could still see the beach and the pier from the big living window The unit is huge for one person It’s well equipped and very clean Bathroom looked new to me I appreciate the strong Wifi since I had to work sometimes during my stay Parking was included and I was able to park my car right below my unit Overall totally enjoyed my stay at the Sea Horse

M. Muhls

What a place! Great service amazing views, just fantastic for a getaway There’s shops and restaurants on the boardwalk and down the street Nothing but fresh open air and relaxing vibes

There’s a zen garden to enjoy coffee in the morning ( or afternoon) The front office has all the amenities you need for a day at the beach If your ever in San C, try this place!

Jen Warner

This renovated hotel is located only 5 minutes from arguably the best beach in Laguna According to my kids, South Crescent Bay has the highest waves of all the beaches Isis, the manager, was exceedingly friendly and accommodating

Everyone at the hotel was incredibly sweet and I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking to stay in the area

Bill Morrow

We spent one night here in June, and everything was wonderful! The room was extremely clean It looked like it had been remodeled recently as the paint looked fresh, and the shower was beautiful! The staff were very friendly and accommodating! Our room had two queen beds with lots of pillows (a must for us!), a mini-fridge, microwave, coffee maker, plenty of storage, lots of charger plug-ins, a balcony, two sinks, tv, and an iron and ironing board Plus, the beds were comfy! The hotel provided free parking and has a swimming pool

We crossed the street and walked down to the Crescent Bay Beach (02 miles) We walked to several other beach areas including Divers Cove, Heisler Park, and Main Beach It is about a mile to walk to the downtown area to hit the restaurants and shops The hotel provides a free breakfast of bagels, yogurt, cereal, and bananas I highly recommend The Art Hotel!

Stephanie Marder

Came in a few minutes late and called the number on the door several times and waited an hour We are now looking for some where to stay this evening THE ATTENDANT, called back within an 90 minutes

She was on her lunch break It is now 1230 pm When she called back we were booking another hotel We can only hope the rooms are nice We are amazed at the lack of timely customer service and frightened by the other reviews we just read

Monique Moledo

The stay was wonderful The staff is extremely friendly and helpful, they always made sure to keep the spirits highThe room was beautiful, good space and clean

The pool and the jacuzzi were really nice The restaurants had live music, fitness center was 24h They had some activities throughout the week There was no view toward the beach, but it’s only 10min walk away from Aliso beach where the Lost Pier Cafe offers complimentary beach umbrella and chair for guestsIt is definitely a romantic getaway

JR Mariano

We visited the Ranch at Laguna Beach for a quick spring break getaway The location and grounds are amazing, only 15 hours from Los Angeles, walking distance to the beach, and the people and vibe of Laguna Beach are very calm and laid back

We were treated amazingly by the front desk staff upon checking in, especially Olivia, who was professional, knowledgeable, and welcomed our family with open arms We look forward to returning to the Ranch soon and wouldn’t hesitate to refer this property to all our friends and family!

Steve Smith

Our stay was nice, rooms nice, played golf also very nice Patio’s and restaurant was solid ok Live music on deck very nice, but 200$ to sit by your fire pits completely stupid

Each night I was there, (3) nobody used them I think management should be embarrassed Interesting how many other people thought it was ridiculous as well Obviously not about building community as much as making a buck

Mills Kelly

I liked this hotel very much It’s a throwback to the old days of Laguna Beach and has some quirky features, like a pool out by the sidewalk (enclosed in glass) and murals painted on the walls outside The views are fantastic and the staff was very friendly and helpful

It is due for a renovation — peeling paint on the railings, etc — and the manager told me that they are about to do a full redo of the place (including adding a restaurant) This hotel is NOT fancy, so if you want fancy, stay somewhere else If you want comfy, convenient, and reasonably priced, it’s great

Sheri Harrington

Location: 5 stars! Quality per price point: 5 stars! We only had 2 issues… First, our room was never serviced in the 5 nights we stayed We would have to go to the front desk to request fresh towels House keeping never stepped foot inside of our room, even though we displayed the “room service requested” sign daily

After 4 days I stopped by the front desk and asked if we could get our room serviced since we were going to be gone all day When we got home at 11:00 that night still nothing I went to the front desk and, very nicely, let them know of the situation Which leads us to issue number 2… Juanita She was VERY dismissive and patronizing and never once offered an apology or an explanation Would I stay there again? Yes! Would I be prepared to clean by own room? Yes! I would also avoid Juanita

Austin Griffith

Good: The location is amazing It’s right in the middle of Laguna Beach, so you have options to go north or south for food, shopping and beaches There’s also beach access directly from the back of the property, which once again is very convenient

The staff was always extremely friendly and accommodatingBad: First off, I had no idea that my King Suite was going to be in another building down the street from the main hotel Laguna Riviera (it was the Seven Four One) In a way, that was a plus because it was extremely private, but there were a few downsides though First, there weren’t any staff stationed at the other property Any time I needed something (like turning on the fire pit), I would have to walk up the street and ask because there also weren’t phones in the rooms either Speaking of lacking technology, there wasn’t a TV in the room Can you believe it? No TV! I guess the property is trying to be a little less technology centric, but a TV should be a MUST in a hotel room If you they were trying to be less technology focused, why offer WiFi then? This was extremely annoying for my partner and I We probably won’t stay here again because of what it’s lacking, which is unfortunate because of the great location

This was our first time staying at Montague Laguna Beach and will definitely not be our last We had an amazing experience The staff goes above and beyond with absolutely everything from valet, to the restaurant, front desk, the spa, pool attendants, and room attendants

Everyone here makes it their mission to provide a wonderful customer experience We ended up extending a day because we didn’t want to leave The grounds are well kept and you can see they take pride in all areas of the property Their private beach is stunning and just a short walk from the rooms I’m already looking forward to our next trip here

Candice Horde

Where do I start? First and foremost, this is the best customer service experience I’ve had since moving to California 5 years ago No age or racial bias that my partner and I have experienced in the past at resorts, just kindness, patience, and attention to detail The view is breathtaking, peaceful, and colorful

The beaches are clean and not overpopulated The rooms are clean and meticulously designed, and the tech & COVID friendly way they have their menus the remote set up is pretty innovative The concierge knows what they’re doing and will make whatever accommodations happen In love with this place; will be absolutely returning

Jedi Master ASU

We spent 4 nights at the Montage The place was wonderful, clean and relaxing pace It was a perfect quiet vacation that we wanted

The room was clean and it smelled good We appreciated the little things They had a lady that came out with different animals at the pool The day we found out about her, she had a hawk that scared away some birds They also had live music on the pool and it was really nice The beach was almost empty and the place feels really high end The food was also great The staff was kind and nice and the valet would get our cars out very fast We never had to wait long on anything Had a great time and will come back soon

We just ended our four day stay at the resort and I can say that has been one of the most stunning and impeccable resorts we have stayed at Everything from the service to the amenities and staff and scenery were amazing We were traveling with two young kids and the staff made sure we had everything we needed and supplied us with bath necessities , toys, cribs, pack and plays and a diaper pail

They really thought of everything Everything was so convenient and easy thanks to the amazing staff and their attention to detail I would love to come back for another stay and will be recommending this resort to our family and friends!

Bekki Johnson Chapman

One of my favorite OC spas Open to locals Monday-Thursday, so every federal holiday that lands on a Monday in 2022, I’ve been there! It’s a great, welcoming, relaxing environmentThey have you pay when you check in, so after your services, when you’re all relaxed and blissful, you don’t have to think about the administrative stuff

The locker room, waiting area, dressing rooms, showers, and vanities are immaculately appointed and comfortableI’ve only had facials here and each time I leave feeling fresh, moisturized, and pampered It’s the best

Crisrael Lucero

This was a lovely hotel with amazing amenities The fitness center is free to use if you’re staying at the hotel, and it’s not your standard hotel gym The fitness center is essentially its own full blown gym, with a great pool to boot

Rooms are clean with a lot of space The only thing that was off was the cleaning staff kept asking when we were leaving so they can clean the room despite us having late checkout

Rodney Ibrahim

Stayed 3 nights here while in town for some meetings Everyone in the area knows about this hotel because of the gym which is attached to the hotel The hotel is in a good area with a parking garage next door which is $27 a day

Rooms were a good size with very comfortable beds However there a few things that could use improvement First, the bathroom was very dimly lit Would help if there was a light in the actual shower Also there was no safe in the room There may be one in the room but I didn’t see oneIf you’re a gym person, the gym is legit Has most types of equipment along with nice locker room with steam, sauna, and jacuzzi They also have a nice lap pool outsideThe bar and restaurant are good and there is happy hour starting around 4 which is fun to take advantage of The food at the restaurant was actually quite good If I’m in the area I’ll be back here

David

I have no patience with being charged full price and then getting the “no service” speech upon check in! They claim staffing issues…Additionally, I noticed that the two complimentary waters that come with every Marriott property on planet earth were not in my room I called the front desk and they said I had to come down to get them Irritating, but fine

But then it was like trying to convince a toddler to share their Tonka truck when I asked for more water since there was no daily service to replenish them He told me I could come back to the lobby and refill them at the water stationLook… I hate giving bad reviews Most of mine are positive However, my recent streak with Marriott brands is making me question my loyalty!Anyway… this is a great gym with a waterless hotel with no service attached… the tacos were pretty good too…

Ashley Atkinson

I stayed here for a meeting in the Laguna Room but enjoyed it so much I decided to stay another night on my own! You can’t beat the location — I believe every room has a coastal view and it’s steps from the beach and downtown Laguna The only thing I’d caution is that some rooms and the pool are very close to the public walking trail on the cliff, so you will hear and see the foot traffic, but I enjoyed the people-watching Service was helpful and unobtrusive, and the decor is neutral and understated (doesn’t scream “hotel!” which I appreciate)

Since they don’t have a big lobby or restaurant, it’s a pretty quiet place other than the complementary rooftop happy hour The catering provided for our meeting was simple but nice I liked the sustainable touches such as cloth towels instead of paper, and a reef-safe sunscreen dispenser at the pool Really felt like a getaway, definitely would visit again!

Patrick Minns

Beautiful hotel, absolutely stunning beach view from our beach facing room The bad was among the most comfortable we have ever slept Staff was extremely friendly, and the rooms are modern and cozy

Many choices for eating are within walking distance as are art galleries and shopping choices The beach is unique, there is traditional sand, but also tide pools which are sadly devoid of the sea life that one would expect We had a wonderful dinner at Nicks Laguna Beach and a memorable anniversary celebration This is now an anniversary destination for years to come

John Moore

Every summer for the past five years my mother has stayed at the inn to attend the Laguna pageant It has a wonderful location with views of the ocean, beach and park and is just minutes to walk from to restaurants and shopping As an older property it has had some renovations done

The common areas are very nice, the rooms are clean and the beds comfortable Occasionally there is a bathroom door that doesn’t close properly or a slight odor but overall this is a nice place I do find it a bit pricey but after all it is Laguna Beach

Rooms are clean and nice for the price, views are amazing and access to the beach from the hotel! There are 2 EV chargers nearby that are fairly cheap if you own an EV Overall stay was very nice, was comfortable Shower head was a little old and rusted so that could have been updated

Other than that, the views were great, there’s a complimentary breakfast in the mornings, and a very nice area, definitely recommend!

I really would’ve loved to give this place a 5 star but after my experience, I cannot My family and I stayed at this hotel the same time last year and we had a pleasant experience So, when we returned this year we were expecting the same thing

However, we were surprised by the lack of hospitality/service, cleanliness etc When we showed up the service was perfectly fine However, we got into our room and noticed that the floor was quite dirty to the point where we could tell it had no been swept or mopped since the last customer had used the room Along with that, when we went to use the shower there was no hot water We even left the shower running for a good amount of time, and it still was not working right We called the front desk and in the morning maintenance took care of it After this, we did not have any issues until the day we checked out of our room We were thankful that we got to leave our luggage at the front desk of the hotel however, when we came back to retrieve our luggage, my grandmother needed to use the restroom The lady at the front office refused to let her use the restroom and told us that we would need to find an alternative place across the street After not finding a public restroom nearby, we came back to ask again thinking that since we were PAYING customers at their hotel for MULTIPLE nights that they would have some resolution to help us The lady at the front desk was not kind and had no sense of hospitality and was the least bit helpful She claimed that she would get in trouble by her boss if anyone used the restroom in the office area and claimed that all of the rooms were being used or checked into early (it was 1pm at the time) After seeing that our room was just being cleaned (the door was open), we finally convinced her to let my grandmother use the restroom in the room we had just stayed the night in She left us with a snarky remark as our “goodbye” and refused to give her name when I asked to say thank youAll in all, with mine and my family’s experiences this time, I do not recommend the seaside inn any longer

We had an absolutely wonderful time here! I was sad it was for only 1 night The staff was so kind and thoughtful, and attentive to our every need, and excellent communication! We even came home from dinner to find a nice snack board and wine in our room, which was a very nice surprise! The room was a stunning 1br suite, just yards from the ocean with killer views! My wife and I will definitely be staying here again next time we’re in town!

Wow I had SUCH a lovely stay here quite honestly my stay may be the best at any hotel It was so clean and comfortable I almost felt like I was staying at my own home I have to say what really did it for me was the front desk staff – holy cow they went to above and beyond helping me with all of my requests (even switching rooms a few times)

They were patient and kind beyond words The rooms were comfortable, there were so many great amenities that came with our stay like tickets to the mission and dining credits I will most certainly be back and I cannot say enough nice things about this beautiful hotel, it was a treat to stay here

Patrick Madden

A relatively new property in a cool and historic area The design of the property is excellent and fits in wonderfully with the surrounding area Staff throughout the property were top-notch, especially the valet staff and bartenders in the restaurant

It’s a great place for a short weekend retreat to unwind and relax That said, I found the room to be quite small and I didn’t feel inclined to spend an extended period of time relaxing in the room beyond sleeping at night Fortunately, the property is walking distance to some great restaurants, a historic museum, and the train station if you want to take a quick ride down to San Diego for the day

Success Expressed

We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful resort! I remember the plot of land empty and neglected for decades And now we have a Wonderful resort with beautiful architecture in old San Juan It’s amazing what you can do with the proper planning

The rooms and interiors are authentically designed to the mission and SJC style, just beautiful!We enjoyed the pool amenities and the sunshine with the proper positioning under the sunWhat we really liked about the hotel was the staff They are so friendly, down to earth, welcoming and attentive One of the managers, Michael passed by the pool and checked in on each guest and we had a lovely chat with himDuring brunch on Sunday, another manager, Rod, rolled up his sleeves and helped to bring umbrellas for the guests, the bar tender knew all the trivia of the hotel as he had been here from day oneFrom the valet guys to housekeeping, to waiters, front desk to managers, service was top of mindThank you, we highly recommend this hotel for a relaxing getaway!

Great location, great viewsI enjoyed this hotel I see some reviews of negative experiences with temperature in the room, hot water, etc

We did not have any of those issues We were able to set our room temperature, we had plenty of hot water, and if we asked the front desk for more water, they gave it to us We also got a massage at the spa and enjoyed their facilitiesWalking distance to the harbor, the beach, and many restaurant options Or you can get a beach bike from the hotel Several grassy park areas, nice clean beach I really enjoyed our stay

It is one of the rare hotels in Southern California where you can stay for a family vacation It is a beautiful hotel with its proximity to the family action, calmness and comfort inside It is a good alternative for guests coming from out of state, especially with its walking distance to the marina and 20-30 minutes close to many surf beaches spots

When you stay between the cities of San Diego and Los Angeles, it is nice that you can go to both cities at similar times My advice is to have breakfast by enjoying the beautiful weather in the green area in front of you in the morning, there is the legendary open buffet breakfast Especially the scrambled eggs and fresh coffee

Overall, a great hotel in the Dana Point area Very easy to walk to everything you may need Our kids love the pool(s) and the amenities really cater to everyone

We ordered food and drinks by the pool a few days in a row and the prices were extremly reasonable for what you get and the servers were great Even though I have kids myself, I really appreciate that they enforce quiet hours before 9am at the pool because sometimes people are just not considerate for other guests who want to relax or sleep in and allow their kids to scream at the pool super earlyThe staff gives notification of any events/weddings that may be happening during your stay which is also a plusEverything is clean and well maintained The only complaint I could possibly come up with is the required valet kinda sucks We forgot something in the car and the hassle of going down and waiting in line (after paying $46 per day) just to get something out of car is super inconvenient You also feel super rushed when you are loading/unloading luggage when departing/arriving because valet wants to push you in and out

This is a great hotel that touches the water in Laguna Beach The tower rooms on the top floor are the best views in my opinion Not a lot of the rooms have air conditioning but they give lots of fans and being on the sand can be breezy so it’s perfect

Great location and delicious coffee in the hotel The restaurant and bar also have great sights but get reservations And the pool can be a fight for the best seats that face the water, so if you want prime seats, get there early

Sara Samie

A few weeks ago my husband and I decided to do a staycation at Surf and Sand When we arrived the entire staff was very welcoming Lisa checked us in and we told her the purpose of our vacation

She really went out of her way to make sure our stay was memorable She went above and beyond to accommodate us and get us the best room (which was a beautiful upgraded room) If that wasn’t enough they also sent over a bottle of wine and chocolate as they knew how important this time was for us Nicky, who was also at the front desk, checked in on us multiple times to make sure we were doing and that we were enjoying our stay One of the best experiences we had by far!!! This will be our go to place because the property is so beautiful and the staff is very attentive and do their best to make your stay amazing

Tracy Brunetti

This hotel is absolutely amazing I had a client residing at the hotel and wanted to do something nice for he and his wife The Concierge, Sandra, and Michael at the front desk, both strategize together to help me quickly plan a wonderful gift for my client

They both stayed late and went well out of their way to assist me and I cannot thank them enough!These two employees exemplify customer service Since I work in a customer service centric industry, multi family, I wanted to commend them both for going out of their way and providing the superior service! Thank you again for all your help to make my clients stay even better! Hats off to Sandra and Michael!

The place was clean and linens lovely but the facility needs upkeep Our bathroom’s tile floor was cracked from threshold to toilet, there are old rusted shower curtain rod holders on the wall as well as holes in the tiles surrounding the bathroom mirror There was no blackout curtain so the security lights in the hallway kept the room Bright all night

In the evening after 8pm an electronic squeal was heard for 30 minutes…the manager said it was the beer compressor from the restaurant downstairs We had to leave and take a walk in order to get away from the squealAlthough room description said kitchenette, there was no microwave, sink or counter space A coffee maker is on the dresser Desk staff and maid were gracious Room was spotless Parking on the street at 2000 per day via meter can be a problem For the price of 285 per night, we would not return

Don Callangher

Beautiful place and staff, Adriana, and Liz and the cleaning crew, always helpful and super nice Came for business, found it so pleasant that we later returned for pleasure, several days each visit Feels like a European hotel on the coast and would recommend to other Europeans as well

The only minus: There is a train stop in front US train whistles and horns are way louder than in Europe and Asia The city of San Clemente should muffle the pre-recorded bell-ringing horn-blasting after 10PM, so that hotel guests may sleep peacefully

Brax Rose

Loved this place! Really cute room, bed, pillows, sheets, super comfy, had a great balcony on each floor overlooking beach and pier that we enjoyed our cocktails on each evening to watch the sunset Easy walking acess to everything We love to stay at unique older places so this was perfect

Only complaint was all the stairs for us 2 seniors Also price was great for a place right on the beach

Beautiful hotel room The couch is the only downside it’s not great But the view from the patio is stunning

The bed was firm, pillows comfortable, front desk guy was super nice getting us checked in very late Breakfast had some tasty pastries, juice, milk, coffee, yogurt, cereal and boiled eggs Fridge and microwave in the room is a nice addition Very happy with our stay here

Femme Fatale

If I could give a negative rating i would For starters, they didn’t give me the room I booked Second this place is not clean at all

the toilet was dirty and the bathroom smelled Oh and don’t get tricked with the beachfront more like street front There is nothing close to the beach about this place The personal did not comeOff as friendly or helpful at all Breakfast sucks Basically spend your money elsewhere

Marycruz Serrano

We booked a beachfront suite for our anniversary An hour in the suite my fiance comes out of the bathroom soaking because water was pouring out of the ceiling They moved us to another “suite” before we saw it they told us it was going to be better and bigger

It wasn’t it was partial view and smaller Which is fine but they still wanted to charge us the same I looked on their website it was at least a $30 difference per nightThe next day I’m in my room and a man came in my room through the balcony, please note this happened on the 3rd floor Its been a hassle trying to get this fixed We stayed 4/13-4/15 They really didn’t seem to care or take anything into consideration

Cannot recommend coming here enough! Every member of staff was extremely friendly and made it a priority to greet us Natalie at the front desk was super sweet! We received a complimentary sangria upon arrival and breakfast in the morning Worth mentioning that the blackened chicken tacos were AMAZING! We had them for lunch and dinner because they were that good! If you get a chance checkout the pool and the hidden sunset overlook

So glad we chose to stay here and hopefully we’ll get the chance to come back! 🤍

I cannot say enough great things about Casa Laguna My wife and I absolutely loved our stay here If you’re looking for a unique, quaint, quiet, boutique, private resort feel, and a place with some history & character, Casa Laguna is for you

One of its most unique features is it feels as though you’re in a big garden – the property is covered in beautiful flowers, trees, and other shrubbery The staff provided exceptional service The food was incredible, especially the burger and chicken tacos 10 minute walk to Victoria Beach Short trolley ride to the main part of town Towels, chairs, and umbrella for beach included Breakfast included We would recommend Casa Laguna to anyone One of our favorite places we’ve stayed while on vacation anywhere

Sheree Cloer

This place is a hidden gem Driving past it on coast highway I never would have known how beautiful the property is Much of the historic building has been preserved but also upgraded to modern amenities in the rooms

I loved walking slowly through the grounds because of the attention and care given to landscaping with native and exotic plants- everywhere I turned was another sight to enjoy, along with seating areas that are so inviting Every staff member that I encountered was friendly and hospitable Complimentary breakfast options are delicious and made to order
