I have stayed at this property many times and this has by far been the most disappointing. I choose this location due to its higher standards and accommodations. I typically stay to get away and clear my head, however I could not wait to get home. The bed was extremely uncomfortable; I was up very late trying to get some...

The staff was so accomodating. We arrived late that night, they gave us a really late checkout so we could sleep in and get some beach time. They also waived our parking just to be nice. It's the little things that mean a lot and we were super impressed with this staff all around. The ocean/beach here is also world...

Our most miserable experience ever. It's unacceptable for the rates that they charge to not warn guests there's no air conditioning in rooms. Our room was not ready until after 5pm. And the noise of the waves were unbearable. They provide earbuds by your bedside. We were told to sleep with the sliding doors open to let in the breeze...

An excellent hotel on the beach and when lying in bed, it feels that you are on the Pacific Ocean on board a ship. Superb views of the sea and delightful restaurant with pan Pacific food. The location and pool service are wonderful.

I did not stay at this property but I had a great spa experience there! The spa facility is great, separate women's and men's areas with outdoor jacuzzi, steam room, showers and beautiful meditation area. My massage therapist was incredible. What a phenomenal experience. There was an issue with the scheduling of the appointment and the person at the guest...

Came with my family of 5 for some sun and summer beach fun. The pool/beach/service/ location are 5 star The lack of Air conditioning make for noisy restless nights. You have to leave the balcony door open to get some air and the very loud crashing waves do not let you sleep. This place is way overpriced and I would...

I e stayed in several nice hotel in Laguna, but this is definitely my favorite. I had a suite overlooking the beach and it was glorious to wake up to the sounds of the waves crashing against the shore. The staff was very kind and friendly and the rooms were well kept and full of amenities.

We booked our room on a third party site and got a decent rate. The hotel is in the HIP District of Laguna Beach and about a 20 minute walk from most of the hotels/restaurants. We enjoyed the location as the beach is somewhat secluded on both ends and it feels very secure. We were placed in the SeaView Room...

No happy with this place, no ac, bathroom cabinets seemed water damaged, pocket doors did not lock and seemed in poor condition with many layers of paint indicating years of misuse. We seemed to find mold on the ceiling. Having to sleep with doors open because of no AC meant for a very LOUD night of very LOUD waves crashing,...
