This was our first time to Laguna Beach and what a beautiful place! To start off the hotel, beach and most of the restaurants in the area (that have patios) are dog friendly!! When we arrived, we were met by Amanda and Madison who couldn't have been sweeter after an 8 hour drive. These girls felt my pain! 8 hours...

Spent a delightful weekend in room 305 with partial ocean view but with full ocean sound.We are in our late 60's; the room reminded us of surfer pads where you brought a chick and chlled (*modern word for you know what:>)). The room had a mini fridge, stove and keurig coffee maker. The location is perfect; you can walk to...

My husband and I recently stayed in an oceanfront King in the Surf wing for NYE. We were attending a wedding and had limited time in the room but overall the room was perfect. It was newly renovated and decorated in a hip beach themed style. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom a little small but the space was clean....

Friendly staff. We were given bottle of wine for our anniversary. We were also allowed to check in early. The room however, was not up to the standard that we expected for a Joie de vive hotel. This was being compared to the Citizen in Sacramento, which was beautiful. The room was small unlike the pictures. The bathroom tub had...

I wish we could have done more to wow you. Most of our guests feel quite at home with us, so I'd be happy to look into your room to make sure it's up to par. If you can get back to us with your room number and the dates of your stay, I'd love to check into this matter....

This place could be so good, it has such potential, but ultimately you'll be disappointed! Compared to surrounding hotel/motels this place is expensive. We stayed in one of the apartments. The room looked like it hadn't been renovated since 1980. The paint colors, the stains, the furnature (and lack of it) was poor. Beds were uncomfortable with really old pillows....

I'm sorry that the weather didn't cooperate during your visit, Simon, but it's even more disappointing that you weren't happy with your room. Different rooms have different views, and we wish we could have explained that better. Were you able to ask for a room change? We would have been happy to do everything we could to accommodate you, and...

The view from the room was fantastic. We arrived early, so the room wasn't ready. We went to lunch and within 1/2 hour, they called that it was available. Right over the beach, you could watch the sun set while laying in bed. The room was clean, the staff helpful. Even the "honor bar" proces were reasonable.

Our stay at the pacific edge was perfect. Immediately upon check in, Luis & David who were working at the front desk graciously upgraded our room to a bungalow with an ocean view.

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
