Even through the weather was a bit cold the week after Christmas, our family had great time at this hotel. The hotel staff was wonderful and friendly. Oh, and the location on beach cannot be beat. Hope to come back soon in warmer time of the year :)

Todd and Amanda were genuine and friendly at check-in. The ocean views were amazing and hearing the waves crashing as you sleep is way better than my clock's radio setting. Thank you for your outstanding customer service. Until next time Pacific Edge!

This place gave us the most amazing Christmas gift by allowing us a adjoining room so that we wouldn't be so tight for space....2 adults, 2 kids, old lab dog The beach is right there and we loved being that close....

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...

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.

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...

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....

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
