This is a beautiful hotel complete with lush California vegetation and a courtyard pool. It can be a money saver as it is on the east side of Pacific Coast Highway and it no longer has the outstanding Italian restaurant. It fact it has no restaurant at all.

Laguna beach is nice and this hotel is in a pretty good spot. It's a little walk up from the main centre and there is plenty of patking around the back. It is a little tired but it's clean and if you get it for a good price then you should be happy. The pool is clean and there is...

Great stay for two nights. Room was immaculately clean! Staff was very efficient and friendly. Walked 1 block to the beach to watch the sunsets. Easy walk to art galleries, shops, and restaurants. What a great location! A good "value" for a reasonable cost. The additional parking fee, though, seemed a bit steep, but it saved the hassle of street...

We just left a Holiday Inn in Solvang, and since I'm an IHG member, I thought we'd stay at the HI in Laguna. It is a good location, and they have a great parking lot that's easy to navigate. The front desk staff was friendly. I asked if a quiet room in the back was possible, and little did I...

We chose Holiday Inn Laguna Beach mainly because it is just down the street from the seaside condo our friends were renting. At a quarter of the price you would have to pay to be on the beach, Holiday Inn is a great choice. It is convenient to everything Laguna Beach has to offer, and the Ralph's supermarket just across...

The room is outdated, it was fine for one night but i wouldn't want to stay longer than that. They had complimentary beverages (coffee, soda, water, lemonade) and popcorn. The staff was very nice, but this is really a motel!
