The room is outdated, it was fine for one night but i wouldn't want to stay longer than that. They had complimentary beverages (coffee, soda, water, lemonade) and popcorn. The staff was very nice, but this is really a motel!

We spent 2 nights here and would happily return if we are going back to Laguna again. It has a gOod location close to the beach and many restaurants, nice and flexible staff - extended our check-out time without any problem. The hotel also has a courtyard pool that is convenient at hot days.
