I personally have gotten to know the owner of this value-based hotel -- Gail. She is sweet and the hotel reflects that sweetness and her personality. This is not a luxury hotel, but it is located in Laguna Beach, right on Pacific Coast Highway (route 1) and is within walking distance of Crescent Bay.

Cool place to stay for a weekend. Rooms clean, owner wonderful. Her restaurant suggestions were perfect. Will stay again next year for Pageanr of the Masters. Laguna tram across the street for ride to Pageant and Main Street. Great place for price.

one of the coolest motels around. edge of town, but the free trolley makes it easy to get around. many artists works adorn the rooms and property. best part is most is for sale. we recently stayed closer to town for an expensive upgrade at a different hotel. don't ever doubt what you know. wont stay anywhere else in LB

Quiet, clean room with nice view of the ocean. Short walk to a great beach. Owner very informative on where to go to eat, etc. Nice pool and covered parking garage. Free shuttle to downtown. Some breakfast items in office that were plenty for us. Would definitely stay there again!

I don't normally stay in motels, but I'm glad I took a chance with this one. It's small, and CLEAN. The people who work here are so friendly and helpful. The beds are comfortable. Breakfast is simple but enough to hold you until lunch (and I'm NOT a small woman, so trust). Fresh fruit, juices, water, small pastries, various granola...

I thought I would try this place as opposed to the larger/more popular hotels that are right by the beach. I was pleasantly surprised! The front desk staff were super nice and helpful! The hotel is on Coast Highway so you do get traffic noise, but did not stop me from wanting to stay there again! Covered parking is a...

The Art Hotel is my #1 choice for hotels in Laguna Beach. The beach is just a short walk across the street and down the hill. The Hotel Staff is very friendly. It feels like home when you walk into the hotel lobby. I look forward to staying here again very soon!!

This little hotel is located at the end of the Laguna Beach shuttle directly on the PCH. Park your car in the underground garage, and don't worry about traffic, etc. Across the street are overlook parks and the beach. Take the shuttle for Pageant of the Masters, Sawdust Festival, etc and back again. Hotel owner it needs some deferred maintenance,...

We stayed for 2 nights and had a really nice stay. Would definitely stay here again. Owner and staff are kind and efficient. Only reason it wasn't a 5 was because our neighbors were loud and a few kids went unsupervised at the pool (which isn't the fault of the owner). Loved the location to the beach, trolley, free wifi...

3 couples stayed here on a visit to see The Pageant of the Masters". It's a beautiful artsy boutique hotel which I loved as I'm not a big fan of corporate hotels. The parking is free ( not so at other hotels in the area). It's right on PCH 1 and there is a trolley stop right across the street....
