We stayed here with a Groupon and we didn't know what to expect. The room is big and the balcony over hangs the beach. During high tide the waves crash within 5 feet of the building. You cannot beat the view. The hotel has a private stairwell from our building to the beach. All of our encounters with personnel( valet,...

We stayed at Pacific Edge 2 years ago and enjoyed it very much, so booked it again this trip for 4 nights. However, the first room we were given did not have any table or desk (or anything that could be used for it) nor any chairs. The only place to sit was on the bed. The next day we...

We stayed here for two nights in february 2017. We enjoyed our stay, here is a few plus and minuses. Comfy beds, great view overlooking the ocean! The hotel is right next to a road with alot of traffic. Right outside our room there where a strong smell of cat piss, fortunately the smell stayed out there and didn't reach...

Had a room with no heat the first night but got a great suite the second night no upcharge! CJ and Stacie are super friendly hosts, had great recommendations for things to do and places to eat! If it wasn't for the first room we would have given it 5 stars. CJ made it a 5 star experience!

I am reviewing this as someone who paid $265/night with a Groupon to stay in a Beachfront King room in the Reef Building, so keep that in mind. You are definitely paying for the view -- and it's spectacular. The ocean literally sweeps right up under your private balcony; the sounds and smells waft into your room and it's magical....

As business traveler, I certainly didn't expect to receive the high level of customer service and hospitality that I received from the hotel's front desk staff Javid and Sandi. Both team members were extremely polite and courteousy in resolving the minor issue I encountered upon checking into the hotel (minor wind draft). Javid quickly responded by quickly moving me to...

My husband and I have stayed at The Pacific Edge before and enjoyed it. This time we stayed in a Surf Wing Beach front. What an absolute treat! Some of the rooms have been newly renovated and the decor was so calming. Neutral tones, granite counters and a nice coastal feel. Cameron who greeted us at the feont desk was...

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...

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
