A cute gem of a hotel, but make sure you book a room on the beach. You will be literally suspended over the waves. Those rooms have gorgeous views. The pool is nice and I hear they have a good restaurant. Fun surfboard decor outside some of the buildings.

My husband and I stayed here at Pacific Edge for a long weekend in January. One of the big reasons that we initially chose the hotel was because we got such a good deal - and we could not have been more pleasantly surprised! Upon checkin, the staff were very helpful. We booked a Village View Queen room and had...

The Pacific Edge Hotel is virtually on the edge of the Pacific Ocean. You'll sleep and wake up to the sound of ocean waves crashing onto the shore. That alone is worth the stay. The rooms are ordinary, but you hardly notice that. The restaurants and the bungalows make for a great retreat for lunch, dinner or just some offsite...

I'm delighted you enjoyed such a relaxing stay with us, Ajay! I wish our rooms had been able to impress you a little more, and I'm sorry we didn't do a better job of explaining that our valet services are optional, but those things aside, it's a pleasure to hear you loved being so close to the ocean. We'll be...

Love this beautiful old hotel have stayed here many times over the years. Updated rooms cheery colors great service. It's worth the extra money to get a beachfront room. There's nothing like the reef tower king suite.

We decided to Splurge on part of our honeymoon to the Pacific Edge hotel. And upon arriving the gentleman at the front desk made us feel unwelcomed, unimportant, short, and just kind of rude. We had got the Beach front King room, which was beautiful and the view was gorgeous. But we had so many questions to ask but he...

I'm very concerned to hear a member of our team failed to give you the warm welcome you deserved, Bethany. That is unacceptable, and I want you to know I will be following up to figure out what happened here. In the meantime, I hope you can appreciate that this was a rare and unfortunate happening, and I will keep...

I've stayed at Pacific Edge four times in the past 18 months (each time for two nights) and it's my favourite hotel in Laguna Beach. I agree some of the rooms are maybe not up to par or what you're expecting but I've been fortunate in getting great rooms each time. The main reason I stay at this hotel is...

Hey, Elizabeth! Thank you so much for taking time out of your day to leave this awesome review!

Everything about this hotel was amazing. Close walk to town, right on the beach, amazing views from ocean view rooms and restaurants. The food was wonderful and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Our only complaint was that the hot tub had a lot of debris and sand at the bottom. We would definitely stay here again.

The front desk was friendly at check in. The location is right on a nice little strip of beach which is nice. The room also did have a nice ocean view. The room itself was small. It was one of the remodeled rooms but the remodel was very basic and cheaply done. The bed was extremely uncomfortable and bouncy. We...

Thank you for your kind words about our friendly staff and wonderful beach views, but I'm disappointed to hear that it wasn't a great stay. As I've mentioned in response to those other reviews, our valet charge keeps you from having to find street parking in Laguna and we forgo charging a resort fee as others currently do including charging...

Myself and 2 friends stayed at this hotel on January 14. I was extremely disappointed. I wanted a beach view but nothing was available, we asked to have the pullout sofa made up and came back after dinner to find the bed linens outside on the dirty carpet. The furniture is old and chipped, the tub is chipped. There were...

I'm so sorry you didn't enjoy your stay, Maureen. It seems you had some specific expectations before arriving and I'm disappointed we couldn't meet them for you. Oceanfront rooms are usually the first to sell out on weekends. That said, I hope you and your friends will be willing to give us another chance sometime. I think that one of...

Stayed here this past weekend for a small local getaway. King beachfront room was awesome. View great. Room a little over but not bad. Bed was comfortable and room clean. Only downside is the layout of the hotel. Several different buildings across the alley from each other or residences between them. I checked in and had a ways to walk...

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
