Room 109 and others have an ocean glimpse. Very quiet. Beautifully redecorated rooms. Really comfy beds. No elevator, since most of the rooms are above the carports. Excellent value at $143/night all taxes etc. included.

We wanted to spend a night a Laguna Beach on our recent trip. We wanted to be close enough to walk to a beach but really didn't want to pay premium prices or resort fees for a single night stay. We took advantage of a special winter rate and booked a room here. This gem is an older beach motel...

This hotel is like a clean Motel 6. It has everything that is needed in a hotel room, and it was even recently upgraded. Room has fridge, microwave and flat screen TV. But everything is kind of basic from the linens - bedding and towels - to the furniture. Even the hotel door was lacking a security chain. A nice...

Friendly reception at the reception. Quiet rooms despite the location next to the main road. Spacious shower room. Wonderful beach below the hotel to which one could borrow beach chairs and beach towels from the hotel.

Room is very clean and modern. Service at check-in was efficient and friendly. Free soft drink or bottled water in lobby refrigerator. The front desk gentleman told us breakfast would be at 7am. We needed to be at an early event so went to the front desk at 7am. Finally at 7:20am, someone arrived with no food. I asked for...

Check in with smooth easy friendly. The room was spotless and updated smells great. Parking was underneath the building coverage which was nice and free. There is a pathway that leads down to the beach and there is a quaint little patio.

Don't let the outside fool you! The inside of the rooms are very clean and up-to-date, including the rain shower. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. This was our 3rd time at this hotel, and it has never disappointed. Be sure to find the stairs in the back and walk down to a beautiful bay!

I was in town to get SCUBA certified, and this had such a great location to be near Laguna Beach (Shaw's Cove and Crescent Bay) - there is even a pathway from the inn to the beach. It is super cute, clean, and comfortable. Amazing shower. There was one weak spot on the flooboards which caused the dresser to rattle...
