The hotel doesn't look like much from the street and we never had a chance to check out the pool or amenities but we loved the 3 bedroom beach bungalow. I had a business trip to Anaheim and my grown kids suggested a holiday trip for Christmas. We love Laguna Beach but could not afford the high prices of Surf...

Thank you for the great review of our 3 bedroom beach bungalow on the beach. It's wonderful you were able to share a memorable time with your family and our authentic 1932 home helped make it special. This time of year the the sunsets are truly amazing and, just like you and your family, even the locals take time to...

My sixteenth birthday at the Laguna Riviera in their Beach Bungalow was better than I could have imagined. I walked into the beautiful house with the giant window overlooking the beach. I was so happy. My friends and I couldn't wait to go down to the water, so we walked down a few steps and there we were! After swimming...

I spent three nights at the Laguna Riviera, and will definitely be back. It's a delightful example of California quirky, with mural covered outdoor corridors and beach wall. The hotel was right on the beach (accessed down a switchback ramp), and there is free off-street parking. I had room 516 at the top, and had a wonderful view out to...

Taco Loco blackened shrimp quesadillas are awesome. Good call. Now I know where I'm having lunch tomorrow. That place is excellent and a classic Laguna fixture much like the Laguna Riviera. Thank you for the positive review and comments. It's reviews like this that keep us motivated to provide the best Laguna Beach experience possible and continue to seek out...

This hotel although rustic it had nice charm and very hospitable staff. The young man that ran the show while we were there was excellent. Very helpfull and friendly. The hotel does show age but many others in the area did as well. There was upgrades done to the bathroom and a newer pull out couch in the living room...

I spend a few days in Laguna Beach every month. I have tried several hotels, mostly on the beach side. You cannot beat the Laguna Riviera for location, service, value and cleanliness. Also one of the few offering free parking, a $10-$15 nightly savings.

Our stay was for one night Saturday, 10/2/10. We had room # 308 and although told the room didn't have a view, we were delighted to be able to see the ocean from our window. The room was boardering a side street but the noise was minimal. We were also located across from the Maids laundry room but no issues/loud...

This is indeed the "Hotel from Hell"... Great location, but held together with hundreds of layers of old paint, not enough parking, rude staff, and belligerent cleaning people... BUT that's not the worst of it. The managers are so negligent and forgetful they cannot remember how long you book your stay for and do not communicate with their employees; and...

This is a most unfortunate review that must be addressed. This guest booked a 2 night stay. When he checked in he signed a form indicating a 2 night stay. He may have felt he booked for 3 but it is simply not the case. The day which would have been the 3rd night had he booked it was already...

Improving on perfection, that's what this family run resort continues to do in caring for new and returning visitors alike. The ocean view is exceptional! Don't have a ocean room balcony, no worries. Plenty of lounging area on the communal terrace patios, very popular gathering place at sunset. There is easy access to the beach on a gentle pathway that...

This place has some rave reviews on Trip advisor but I must admit to being a wee bit disappointed. The location is undoubtedly fantastic but read the room descriptions carefully. We unfortunately had to move from room 305 to 408 as the first wasn't available for all 4 nights of our stay. Room 305 has a 'surf view' which is...
