This boutique Hotel is right on the beach. We had an ocean side room and it was amazing to hear the surf and be lulled to sleep by the sounds of waves. Just a short walk to a variety of eateries and shopping. The vendors were all helpful, warm and friendly. Walking the gorgeous beach was amazing. Would I go...

It's that there were highs and lows that averaged out: High - LOCATION - This hotel is in the perfect location in Laguna Beach. Great beach spot, in the middle of the great Laguna Beach Restaurants, Galleries and Shops in their Upscale Glory. High - Service...

I've stayed at this property before; it's a beach house feel property, however this time I can safely say my experience was 10x better by how friendly and accommodating the staff was this time around.

This was our 4th stop on our California road trip, and probably the most disappointing. Check in was swift, with a really helpful friendly guy. Managed to sort valet parking, although the guy was mega busy and harassed, but was keen to be as helpful as possible. Room was beach front in the Reef block. Absolutely fabulous views, and lovely...

The room was a bit smaller than we anticipated. But when we stepped out on the balcony....wow. Enjoyed every minute of our stay. Everything we needed was in walking distance. We will definitely go back again.

We stayed 3 nights at this hotel. It was valet parking which cost $24 per night. You don't have much choice as it is metered parking on the street. The room we stayed in was basic, very clean, but when you step out onto the balcony the view was AMAZING. The balcony actually overhung into the Pacific hence the name....

Stayed in room 136 right on the water. This property is literally on the main beach within walking distance of all Laguna has to offer. The room was beautifully decorated, cozy, clean and the property is very welcoming. You will not be disappointed with your decision to stay here.

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
