Most of the hotels in Laguna Beach are older facilities. But, the Art Hotel is well kept and clean, with lots of character. It is a short walk to Crescent Bay and the trolley stop. There is no restaurant/bar or room service, but who needs it? There is coffee in the room, a light continental breakfast (pastries/juice) in the lobby,...

We came down for the May 13th weekend for a wedding. The place perfect for a relaxing walk and nice place to stay. Love our stay and will come back again. It was very reasonable and the pool was a nice place to relax and unwind.

Very friendly at check in.Hotel is not fancy could use some updates but not bad. Not walking distance from restaurants unless you want to walk a mile in a half. Quiet if your inside but outside a lot of road noise ...across the road from the beach. Advertise the rooms as 650 sq ft but 350 sq ft at best..overall...

What a fun hotel! After two visits, I'm inclined to say that this is the best place to stay when visiting Laguna Beach. It's far enough away from the busy downtown area to be nice and quiet and still within easy driving distance. The front desk crew is friendly and very proficient; a good combination. This has become my favorite...

Staff is friendly and accommodating, hotel is in a quiet area of Laguna Beach. Large tub to take a relaxing bath. Access to a small market and gas station across the street. There is also access to a free trolley to take you downtown about half a block away from the hotel.

I had the best business experience at the Art hotel! It was so conveniently located with a magnificent ocean view from my very large room. The lobby was beautifully decorated with great artwork and murals everywhere. Gail, the proprietor, was attentive and helpful with everything that I needed. The pool area and patios were perfect for entertaining clients. Also was...

Having never stayed here before we were pleasantly surprised by the uniqueness of this hotel. We had our 2 dogs with us and after talking to Isis at check-in we were confident we made the right choice. Did I mention that we loved Isis!! After meeting the owner the following day she was just as nice!! We were able to...

The Art Hotel has a friendly staff, ample parking, and is in a great location. We did have a few gnats in our room which was a little of an annoyance but I would stay here again. it is a great value hotel.

Hi Nathan, Thanks so much for leaving us this review, we really enjoyed having you. Sorry for the gnats, don't know how they made their way into your room without paying! Jokes aside, thank you so much for your business and we hope to see you again Nathan.

I have no idea how this place is getting the reviews it is. It worked for us because we booked a room and was disgusted when we saw the room. It stunk, the bed cover was soooo old and there was black mold on the ceiling. The lady at the front desk let us out but holy cow!!!!
