25th wedding anniversary stay. Got the Reef Tower, and worth every penny! Staff exceeded my expectations, everything was truly great, and every staff person went out of their way to make me feel personally valued. Add that excellence in service to a fabulous suite with a wrap-around private balcony, and you have a great memory waiting to happen. Just so...

My husband and I stayed at the Pacific Edge on Laguna Beach over Labor Day weekend and had a wonderful time. The hotel was just terrific and the front office staff were the friendliest and most accommodating people to work with. Our room was great except for Wi-Fi, which was spotty throughout our time. The TV would lose its signal...

My son & I recently stayed at the Pacific Edge Hotel in Laguna Beach. For a room that cost close to $300 a night, this hotel needs major work. First, the positive.

Stay a night at the Pacific Edge and it was exactly what we wanted and hoped for. The rooms are very simple, but with a modern edge to them. The benefit is that you should actually get out of the room and enjoy dining in the area, the beach, etc. You can get delivery to the room, but I have...

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
