Alexis Loya

Loved my stay here The room was spacious and clean the staff was very friendly and accommodating The breakfast was good too nothing crazy, just scrambled eggs and bacon or sausage depending on the day

Our room was always made when we came back Which was perfect after a long day of exploring Oh and the water pressure was great đź‘Ť

Satava O’Dell

The stay was wonderful Great location Very well kept

Nice spacious room Has a large closet, fridge, microwave, sink, shower with tub Beautiful pool and hot tub Great service The only reason I gave a 4 star instead of a 5 star is because we were put in the back of the building and there are abandon train tracks on the other side of the wall where from about 930pm until about 1am people were shooting off bottle rockets I called the office and the guy told me People do it all the time because they have nothing better to do with their lives

Michael Veinbergs

The room was nice and clean The housekeeping service did a great job It was in a convenient location

My only gripe was the breakfast It was quite bad In fact, if you choose a hotel based at all on having a free breakfast, stay elsewhere We were there 3 nights 1 morning we were served scrambled eggs with a single slice of lunch meat turkey The next day we had eggs, and 2 mini waffles with extremely stale, completely inedible cereal If you would like a danish, you will be served one half of 1 danish It was laughably stingy on the part of the hotel owner If you plan to have breakfast out, then I would certainly recommend this place

It presents a fancy place when you 1’st walk in It’s an older hotel, room needed minor fixes, we just did without Bathroom door would not lock, and sliding door track was held down with tape and came up with use

The beds are good come with 4 pillows and comfortable Nice cold fridge, but no microwave It was fine for our needs, and they accept pets at $50 a night

Susan Ranahan

About 80 women were there for a celebratory luncheon The service was outstanding and all did an excellent job attending to so many with so few The food was served hot and fresh, and the servings were not skimpy

Taste and presentation were great!There was a lot going on and timing was important The microphones worked, the table set up was lovely and it was a very enjoyable time

Brian C

Unfortunately, didn’t even get the opportunity to stay here Had a family emergency and needed a room for the night For some reason the website was allowing us to book any room, so when I called to book the room, I was quoted significantly higher than their own site

When I asked why, she said we needed to book on the site to get that price, even though I explained that the site wasn’t working Again she said we needed to book on the site and to have a nice dayclick Hopefully they will get their site working so others won’t run into the same experience

Bill Vasvary

I was very impressed by the room we were given at this fairly new Hotel (less than 2 years old) It was a room for handicapped customers so it was large and nicely arranged with an extra large bathroom, a pullout couch in a decent size living area, and a large King size bed semi-seperate from the couch and desk area A refrigerator, microwave, closet cabinet, and coffee maker were also included

The hotel is somewhat small for a Marriot which is nice The breakfast is serve yourself and free There is a lounge on the first floor which was popular over the Labor Day weekend The personnel were very friendly and helpful I highly recommend this hotel for anyone traveling to this area and looking for a reasonably priced hotel They have an underground parking facility but they usually charge extra for it

Bridgett

I was pleasantly surprised by how much I loved this hotel The beds were extremely soft, the carpet felt super plush and soft, the rooms and entire hotel smelled fresh, clean and new The bathroom was a little tight but nothing to complain

I loved the walk in closet Oh and the desk with sliding privacy window was super cool, the TV has a mount that let you move it and the room key doubles as a light switch for the roomSuper happy with everything, and the staff were exceptional

Mark N

Very nice hotel, the room was in perfect condition, no issues that I could see We had a double queen, nicely arranged with a nice sitting area The room was also very clean!The breakfast was your typical hotel breakfast as expected

The price was reasonable for the cleanliness and quality of the roomHighly recommend!

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

We found this little gem on our last trip to Laguna, CA It is a very cute older style hotel that has has recently had a makeover Our room looked fresh and had new paint, and cute decorations

We had a nice size room with a king bed, bathroom, outside sitting area and a small kitchen It is just steps from the beach and you can hear the ocean Just what we wanted The staff was friendly They offered breakfast We will be staying here again

Josie Ciaciuch

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

Patrick Brown

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!

I have stayed here on 3 separate occasions for business and personal reasons Once again The property, rooms, amenities and staff are all 5 star in every way The rooms are contemporary and outstanding for cleanliness and comfort

Every part of the property is maintained perfectly The front desk people, house keeping, and everyone that works here does a wonderful job They all define “fine hospitality “ Better than the Ritz or Waldorf Go out of your way to stay It’s perfect

Lena Castles

Definitely staying here again! Rooms were spacious, quiet, very clean with nice decor The bed was very comfortable Location was very convenient

Staff was friendly, although I didn’t have to go to the front desk or ask for anything from housekeeping or maintenance Whenever I walked thru the hotel, all staff greeted me and other guests I’m a Hilton Honors member and I used the app to check in and out and used the digital room key The app is great! Overall excellent stay!

MAJOR thank you to Angelo (I believe that was his name) working the evening of Sunday the 10th I came in very exhausted after finding a cockroach in my room at the best western across the street at 10pm and he was so kind and helpful He was personable and very nice, and made me feel so much safer and better

My car was towed!!! It cost me $56500 to get my car out of the impound lot That was not my big frustration

My first frustration originated out of NO ONE being able to tell me why I was not contacted I registered late in one of the 7 ADA rooms I did not leave the hotel (Seven quick phone calls, asking the night crew)My second frustration originated from not finding anyone to drive me to the impound lot Not one taxi responded My husband asked a friend of his to take me the next dayMy third frustration originated from having no car and no food Did I mention I was diabetic? I mentioned this to the hotel Assistant Manager I was not even offered a protein bar—-nothing Did I mention the restaurant and bar were closed? Not only was I frustrated, I now had a headacheWould I stay here again? NOSonesta wants their guests to feel good staying at one of their properties Do I feel good? NOSonesta wants their team members to “communicate honestly” Did anyone communicate with meNO!!!Sonesta wants to be “synonymous with unrivaled hospitality” Huh????? What did you say??? Did I experience thisThis gets a HELL NO

Lora Heart

Stayed at this hotel for 4 days with my family and I am very satisfied with my visit The rooms were big, clean, and had a microwave and refrigerator We also had breakfast every morning and the options were nice (eggs, biscuits, muffins, cereal, bacon, etc)

The location also had a FREE Happy Hour which changed daily but had chips, salad, cheese, wine, beer, and pizza one night It’s great to grab a snack before relaxing by the pool or in the jacuzzi which are both well-maintained and clean The only issue we faced was with the early check in fee which was $3000 dollars (could easily be avoided) Overall, great hotel, perfect location close to the ocean and plenty of places to eat for a reasonable price

Sheila Orenstein

We really enjoyed our stay The hotel was clean and accommodating The location was perfect for us

My suggestion at this time is since we were staying for an extended period of time, I would prefer not to have to ask for extra towels, wish they were just left for us, also since we were on vacation we would have liked breakfast to end later than 9AMWe would book again The staff was friendly and helpful

Richard Luery

The hotel provides a nice breakfast which includes an omelet bar The staff at the front desk were friendly and helpfulThe rooms were very nice and clean

The location for me was great since I visited people in laguna woods The hotel has a happy hour with free snacks and drinks every day I was impressed with this hotel since they tried to please their guests which is rare these days My only complaint is that I could not book for the entire week I stayed since the hotel was full and the room ac was very loud

Another great stay at the Hampton Inn and suites for me I really enjoy staying in these kind of placesThe rooms are bigger than your typical hotel room and I enjoy that

My room has a king size bed, a nice desk, and a couch that you can relax on The bathroom is super spacious and this one I don’t know if this hotel is brand-new or it was just recently remodeld but it is very nice I like the decor in the room and everything that they got going on hereWhat you also get with this places you get breakfast in the morning I stopped in yesterday and had waffles and granola You can also get some hard-boiled eggs there too They also have a nice variety of fruitThe grounds are really well kept also I wish I would’ve had a chance to make it to the pool or the Jacuzzi but I didn’t get there So maybe you’ll have to check it out for me on your next day

Erin Lucke Starr

Rooms are clean and hotel is nice – unfortunately I can’t say the same for a front desk staff member who made my experience less than ideal I had been staying two nights previously and just needed one additional night I walked in said I’d like to book a room to which the night front desk clerk Informed me that he is not able to make a reservation and I would have to do it online

I thought I was being punked because I’m literally standing at the front desk of the hotel and in a less than pleasant fashion repeated “online, online, yes online” I asked for anyone else that could me and their name and number and they let me know that that person wouldn’t be here until Monday Which means they don’t have a manager Saturday and Sunday and conveniently they’re out of all the contact information for this person This really ruined my experience that was so great for the first two nights that I stayed here That’s very unfortunate And both outlets at the bed only work if the light is turned on in this room

The room was beautiful The bathrooms are very nice No free breakfast

We thought the toast put out and unattended was free but after placing two pieces of toast in the toaster, a woman walked past and greeted me After a moment, she watches me grab a few items (butter and jelly), she asked if I had paid for vouchers I turned and said “no I didn’t know we needed vouchers” She then told me the “breakfast” (toast and jam) isn’t complimentary and that I could I love you for vouchers at the front I then walked away and left my toast in the toasted and I apologized for assumingMind you, there are no signs that say anything There was also no attendant while I was preparing this, it CLEARLY advertised FREE BREAKFAST all over Google and it was only TOAST so I was quite confused when I was asked to pay Either way, NO FREE BREAKFAST

Be careful that you might have to endure loud music right across the street at midnight and rude front desk if you choose to stay at this hotel The music was so loud and continued until 12:30 am I couldn’t sleep so called the front desk and asked if they know when the music would stop, the male staff suggested me to call the police about the situation because there is nothing the hotel can do about it

While I was shocked about the man’s attitude from the other side of the phone, he just hung up on me!! Very poor location and worst customer service I’ve ever experienced

Lonnie Hoggard

Hotel staff was great! Breakfast area needs help Crew working in the breakfast area needs to be trained on how to clean and interact with customers!One breakfast worker was down right rude! She complained and cursed at how much she hated the kitchen equipment and just stood around looking at the dining room area rather than walking out and cleaning up!

Please stay somewhere else if you can!PARKING NOT FREE- they hide this little tidbit until you see $12/night charge on your bill Please read reviews online, and you will see this mentioned multiple timesHotel room smelled musty, bed hard AF, and carpet is ugly and disgusting

Location convenient, but loud as it’s right next to the freeway Needless to say, I didn’t get good sleep I have no idea why I was put on the side of the hotel directly facing the freeway when the hotel didn’t appear to be crowded The staff seemed passive and stoicThere were some benefits-free breakfast-free meeting rooms available on a first come first serve basis-Hotel lobby very clean and inviting-bathroom located within hotel room was remodeled and clean (lighting poor though)-Clean outdoor pool and nice firepit area Clean groundsOverall though, I expected more for the high price I paid hereI will not stay here again

I went through hell getting to Marriott due to the lack of due diligence of my travel accommodations The staff went above and beyond their assigned duties to ensure I was accommodated appropriately and had an enjoyable stay Not to sound cliché, but the staff truly acted as a light at the end of the tunnel from my horrid transit from point A to B to make stay a great one

PLEASE GIVE YOUR STAFF A HUGE RAISE as they have made me a fan of Marriott Hotels I will now only book with this hotel chain for future lodgings due to the great experience they had created for me

Bruce Adams

Asked twice to get the room serviced Both times we were assured that housekeeping would take care of our room Returned to room to find it untouched

Called the front desk and was told that despite a three day night stay that service was only after checkoutUnhappy Especially since we were assured of service with each request

RiLee Andros

We loved staying here and had no issues! Room was clean and had plenty of space, beds were comfy, staff was helpful, and the breakfast was delicious As a traveler on a budget, I have stayed in a lot of Super 8s and Motel 6s, and this was a huge step up from that for a very good price The pool and jacuzzi were great, we had them to ourselves on a Sunday night and it was lovely

The breakfast was hot and delicious, and the staff stayed really on top of making sure all the breakfast items were refilled/stocked The couch in our room pulled out to be a bed, and it was not nearly as comfy as the beds, but worked great for our group of 3 adults who each wanted our own bed space Parking was easy We would definitely stay here again

Alex Hyer

I’d say everything here is pretty good There’s a pool and spa as well as a pretty good breakfast overall They deserve a solid 5 stars for service

One of our rooms had some condensation dripping from the A/C which is above the room They immediately checked on it and—when they determined they wouldn’t be able to fix it immediately—switched us to the closest room they could find without hesitation Great staff overall!

California Jones

It’s decent A bit stale smelling Breakfast was good

Won’t touch the pool or jacuzzi here but jacuzzi doesn’t look bad Room was clean Carpet was not the best; wore sandals because I didn’t trust it Shower was clean and room had a balcony Why can’t we smoke in hotels like this? It’s 2022 and they need to stop acting like the place already smells like roses(it doesn’t) Weight room open 24 hours which was Awesome and clean But the door doesn’t lock; I’d hate for my girl to go there alone… Out of the 3 25-3-star hotels in this area, this was the cheapest and feels like it

I thoroughly enjoyed my recent stay for a trip that was both business and pleasure I was welcomed to my room with complimentary snacks and beverages along with a handwritten note stating I had been chosen as the guest of the day What a delightful surprise! The staff was professional, friendly and attentive

The room was very clean and the bed and bedding was extremely comfortable I appreciate all the room amenities, especially having both a mini refrigerator and a microwave, as well as a coffee maker The complimentary hot breakfast is a must for any stay! There were plenty of food options and changed day to day for variety I encountered great staff from the front desk to housekeeping to the dining area

We are sorry to have to write a review that is not positive, but we did not have a good experience It started with the front desk Checking in and out, we did not have anyone greet us, they continued to sit down and besides being unfriendly, their attitude was not one to try to accommodate us

Our key did not work when we tried to get into our room The phone in our room had another room number on it so it was confusing to try to get help to our specific room since the phone was pulled from another room evidently There was no “do not disturb” placard We had to once again go to the front desk to get our DND placard before we could leave the roomOur room itself had a leaky shower head, a torn shower curtain, low water pressure, slow sink drain, and our broken chair was replaced by another broken chairThe door to the bathroom opened into the room At night, if the door was left open to get to the restroom we would have run into the door We had to keep a light on and crack the door to use the bathroom at night The pillow were lumpy and the clock in the room still had the time from the Fall and Winter It had not been changed to daylight savings time even though it was in May that we visited the hotelLastly, the parking lot was empty but the front desk clerk said we could not have a late check out Regardless of how nice we asked She finally gave us one additional hourWe’re never going to stay at this Hampton Inn again They need a lot of work on courtesy, both from front desk personnel and staff Not once did anyone greet us with a smile or offer any kind words Their rooms need quite a bit of help as well

Pro: Rooms and facility were clean upon arrival Good safe location Staff were nice

Breakfast was good Beds were comfortableCon: I asked for the bathroom shower drain to be fixed three times We could not take a shower without it filling up with gross water You can see hair clogging it in the drainThis is unsanitary and quite frankly- disgusting especially when paying $200 a nightNo housekeeping the whole week we were there I had to call for fresh towels and empty the garbage myself even after telling the staff I was leaving for the day and asking for it to be done It wasn’t so I got garbage bags and did it myself

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

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

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…
