Reviewed 2 days ago NEW

the rooms were not in accordance with the price. Yes they have magnificent ocean views, but the suite we had was less than any other place I have ever stayed in. The rooms are very disappointing and not as clean as you would think for a place stating their reputation. Master bath was small with no place for your personal...

Older Hotel... a little on the expensive side... but our ocean view room was tremendous! We slept with our balcony door open to listen to the waves about 30 ft from our balcony. The room itself was average... but the room location.... PERFECT!

It's so lovely having waves as the background music, Bill! I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay with us. While we are comparable to all the other hotels in the area, I appreciate the feedback. Hopefully, you'll be back to enjoy more of Laguna Beach soon! Take care, Alex Yi, Assistant General Manager

This is one of my favorite places to stay in Laguna Beach both for the price, customer service and for the location. This time I was greeted by CJ and Stacie at the front desk and both went above and beyond to make my stay a very memorable one. If you are looking for a cool and hip place to...

My daughters and I stayed here for a week or two every summer when they were little. They are now grown and it was awesome to revisit and to find the place is still wonderful! ___________ The place is still very well maintained with a nice pool, beach access. __ _

CJ was very helpful in getting us an adjoining room in exchange for the 2 bedroom apartment that only has one bathroom and requires renovation. Not recommended for anyone requiring wheelchair or walker. The valet is not convenient unless you're staying on the same level since the complex are in 3 levels and multiple building. Too far from the lobby.

Not the most accomodating. We booked through Hotels.Com and the staff gave us a small stale room with no balcony facing a pool full of kids. I wouldn't mind, except I think the hotel was half empty and they could have offered a nicer room had we known.

Good: Location and view and on site restaurants. Our 2 bedroom apartment was spacious and had a great view of the ocean from the big living room which had a wall filled with sliding glass doors leading to a large balcony. We stayed in room #12, on the third floor, in the building closest to the street. Our ocean view...

You get what you pay for here and then some. A bit pricey at $120-$150 a night, but what do you expect, its right on the beach? In a popular and up scaly area you could do much worse with this price, and the other prices around aren't comparable (Holiday Inn is far more expensive, and probably just as good)....

Rooms are large but just okay. Laundry pickup came in a large truck in middle of the night and made incredibly loud noise. No way to sleep through it. Sand on the floors was okay but sand in the bed?

This is a beach hotel, a very good beach hotel with great ocean views--if you splurge for the right room! It is not the Ritz! It's a little dirty at places; sand will do that! But get an ocean-front room, let the waves lull you to sleep, see dolphins from your room, and walk down a short flight of steps...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Imagine the cool ocean breeze brushing up against your cheek. Admire the views of the deep, blue, Pacific Ocean from the balconies overlooking the waves of one of our oceanfront rooms. Enjoy convenient sunning, surfing and swimming as the sand is just steps from your room. Pacific Edge Hotel is not only steps away from the sand of the California coast, but also steps away from everything that Laguna Beach has to offer. The hotel is within walking distance of both Laguna Village and the shops and galleries along the South Coast Highway. In addition to your holiday and vacation needs, we are known for being an ideal destination for groups, social events, and wedding. Our magnificent Villa offers a prime, one-of-kind event space, suitable for the most important and precious events. We look forward to you joining us for your next leisure or business stay. ... more   less
