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. We had a spacious room with a mini-kitchen with a fridge, microwave, sink and plenty of counter-top space. The view was to die for; we were on the...

Please allow me to apologize for the slow check in, and if we didn't make you feel as welcome as we should have. Most of our guests rave about our team, so I can assure you that this is completely unlike us. That aside, I'm thrilled that you were so happy with the view, and I hope we'll have a...

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. We get a good deal at this great location by staying in the buildings that are not right on the ocean. The buildings are older but the...

The hotel itself is ok. You can tell its older, but it is kept up well. But the view from our room was awesome. We had a beachfront room, and it was right on the water. The beds were pretty comfortable, and the room was clean. The staff was very friendly. Our room had a minifridge, flat screen tv and...

You really can't beat this view! Happy to hear that you felt so relaxed, but we're sorry you were disappointed with the valet. Parking in Laguna Beach is hard to come by, but you're always welcome to attempt to find street parking if you like. We'll be sure to remind our guests of that, but until then, we hope to...

We recommend staying here , as it is right on the beach and the view is spectacular. Ask for an ocean front room. 701 is great - top level on a corner overlooking the beach. Ralph's is a block away to stock up or whole foods is a short walk away. Great restaurants and cafés. The hotel has all the...

It sounds like you had a really nice time during your stay, Pamela, and I couldn't be happier that you took full advantage of all our great amenities.

I stayed at the Pacific Edge on a compensation package for corporate meeting planning. This hotel has the perfect location, great beach access, very comfortable beds and great towels.

This is a perfect place for family vacations, or just a quiet beach-side getaway, but I'm sorry we weren't quite what you were looking for for your event, Ellen. Thanks for that feedback, and I hope we'll get to welcome you back next time you're able to relax for a little bit longer. Warm regards, Thomas Lee General Manager

As soon as we walked into the lobby area, we were greeted with smiles and a friendly "Hello" from staff. I have never stayed here before and did not know what to expect.

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
