This is a complex with many several buildings, so when you make your reservation be specific of where you want to be. We always stay in the building RIGHT on the beach with full balcony view that is literally over the beach. You can open the large sliding doors and lay in bed and watch for whales while enjoying the...

I was pleasantly surprised when I checked in to the hotel. Javid Bholat provided outstanding customer service he was very professional and pleasant. I was a bit surprised at how thin the walls were as I could hear other guest and unfortunately the internet signal was weak. I was really impressed with Javid he did everything possible to accommodate my...

Javid really is a pleasure to work with! So happy to hear that you felt the same way, but we apologize if your neighbors' chatter was a bit bothersome. We'll keep that in mind as we move forward, but in the meantime, thank you so much for the wonderful rating! All the best, Thomas Lee General Manager

I loved being so close to the beach. The weather was perfect and it wasn't very crowded. Javid got us accommodated with the most perfect room. He gave us all the information we asked for and then some! He made me feel very welcomed and excited for my vacation. The service at this hotel is fantastic and I couldn't have...

Our first experience was admittedly less than great, because their WiFi was completely down all weekend. BUT this was almost 2 years ago, and they have since upgraded their system and all was well. In fact they get very high praise from us because the manager without hesitation almost 2 years later not only honored the chance to make it...

We have stayed at Pacific Edge several times and just love it. We had a balcony off our second story room right above the beach. There were ear plugs on the nightstand to drown out the ocean waves, but I love listening to the ocean and waves throughout the night. We did use the valet service for our car which...

I enjoying staying at Pacific Edge in Laguna Beach. Clean, comfortable, friendly and on the beach! Breakfast is good, coffee is good--and did I mention that it is on the beach?? Beautiful sunsets.... This hotel is well decorated and comfortable, from the (breakfast) lounge to the outdoor seating.

We were at the Pacific Edge a few weeks ago and had a pretty sketchy experience that is worth sharing. The hotel is fine, basically what we expected in terms of motel-type quality but with amazing views. We were in one of the renovated ocean-front rooms which is located in a separate building from the lobby. The problem was security....

I'm so sorry to hear that you felt uncomfortable. Our guests' safety is our first priority, and as such, complaints like these are all but unheard of. It sounds like we should have offered to move you to a different room, and I'm sorry that we missed that opportunity. I want to make this right, so please don't hesitate to...

Stayed here for a special occasion and booked the beach-side room with a patio. I know those rooms are a bit more expensive but trust me when I say it's worth it.

I'm totally amazed by some of the other reviews. If you take it that this is an old motel then yes it's fine. It certainly isn't anything like a boutique hotel. I was shown 5 different rooms and the non refurbished ones are plain tatty. The days when simply painting a wall a bright color was enough are long gone....

Sorry you weren't impressed. We are currently in the process of renovating all of our rooms, and we feel that you'd be wowed by the updates. We can assure you that simply adding a new coat of paint doesn't cut it for us, either, but we'll certainly keep this in mind moving forward. Thanks for your candor. Best, Thomas Lee...

Laguna beach is one of my favorite places to visit with my husband it was fun with our older kids as well. We have stayed at this hotel several times over the years.

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
