We spent the weekend of thanksgiving in the lovely Art Hotel, experience start after booking at booking.com. They call me two time to accomodate in the bast place fit my need, they recall me the day of check in to guarantee the presence during check in. Lovely. Everything was perfect, I don't rate excellent because the place is quite outdated....

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 10 September 2016

We were here last year for two nights and had such a great time we decided to return for a longer stay, four nights, and spend more time at nearby Crescent Bay as well as visit other nearby attractions we'd missed the first time like Pageant of the Masters and Crystal Cove State Park. The Art Hotel is a hip...

Perfect little getaway. I had a conference in Orange County and we decided to stay at the beach and commute. This was a great find and location. Very attentive staff. Clean facility. You will have to walk a ways to most restaurants but we always enjoyed the stroll. And the hotel gives suggestions for walking closer to the water. Beach...

My family and I have stayed at the Art Hotel countless times over the last decade. (It operated under a different name previously, so I've actually been staying there for over 20 years). The location is perfect for us, north of downtown, and close to our friends who live in the area. The rooms aren't fancy, but they are clean,...

Dirty and disgusting rooms. Horrible people running this "hotel". Do not stay here unless you are okay residing in a smelly room with the probability of being bug infested. The manager lies on the phone and the owner has no idea what she is doing. She was unwelcoming and unprofessional in every way. We ended up leaving and booking a...

Never had a review this bold. We did have a guest who never checked in appear with a pet recently. We were unable to accommodate and make acceptable her wishes. I only have 7 pet friendly rooms out of 28. Only on 1st floor, to make going for a walk simple. Pets cannot be all over the hotel. This guest...

This was a great place to stay for a quick weekend trip in Laguna Beach. We travel with our 2 1/2 year old. The beds were comfortable and I really liked the eco friendly toiletries. The microwave and fridge are a must-have for us. We especially liked that you feel the personality of the proprietors. And the housekeeping staff were...

We were in town for a wedding and the bride to be had recommended this hotel to us. We were 15 minutes from the hotel when we received a call from Isis (front desk) providing a courtesy call that our room was ready and was checking in to see when we'd be arriving. Being Southerners, we found that to be...

Very quaint hotel at the top of Laguna. Has upper deck pool so you can view the ocean. Small refrigerator so you can keep food cold. The trek to the beach is nice going down hill, but QUITE a hike up, so everybody needs to carry something! Especially nice in summer when the trolley is running and you can hop...

Gail was pleasant! Not sure but I believe she was the owner! On the plus side, comfortable bed and clean towels everyday! Beautiful artwork by local artisans decorate the premises everywhere! The negatives, room needed updating. We had a room with an "ocean view" but also with the view of the main drag through town which is a very busy,...

If you're looking for luxury, this hotel is not for you, but if you are looking for a homey, casual, friendly place to stay, this should fit the bill. Just came back from a mini vacation in Newport Beach and Laguna. Booked the Art Hotel because of the price and location to the beach and because it had a pool....
