Our second stay at The Laguna Rivera. We come from London just to stay here. Last year we had Room 101, this year Room 506. 506 has the most beautiful view, recently redecorated with a new bathroom. We squealed with delight. Our 3 night stay was marred on the first night by a group of rowdy men in the next...

I've stayed at the Laguna Riviera on several occasions, usually with family or alone on business. The location couldn't be better: it's right on the beach near downtown Laguna, and most rooms have views of the ocean. (And Laguna Beach itself is well situated between Disneyland and Legoland, our primary family destinations.) The building is one-of-a-kind, and looks a bit...

Headed to Laguna Beach on a whim, the first weekend of December. We did not have reservations anywhere, so stopped in at a couple of different places to check availability. Most were quite expensive until we tried Laguna Riviera. Very reasonable, especially since we were staying only 1 night. Nice room. We liked the kitchenette and the the remodeled bathroom...

Thank you for your review. I am very glad that the Laguna Riviera met your needs and you enjoyed the sound of the crashing waves.

I am very sorry that after so many years of visiting and enjoying the Laguna Riviera that this valued guest has given us a 2 and has indicated that they would not recommend a property they have enjoyed for at least a decade. Unfortunately, their review has been posted without having all of the facts, or a clear understanding of...

The hotel was really cute and great value for the location. The lady who works nights was very nice allowing us to park in two spaces with our large SUV when a guy took up too much room with his mega truck. The only downside was how thin the walls were. On our last night we were subject to a...

Thank you for the kind words and nice review. We listen to all comments and adopt ideas when they make sense. Even though we recently implemented several enhancements to isolate rooms from outside and adjacent sounds, in some areas, it can be a challenge. We will be stocking the front desk with complementary ear plugs for anyone who wishes to...
