We had just flown in from the midwest and we just needed a place to clean up and sleep. We literally pulled off the road into the driveway of this hotel because it was right near downtown Laguna Beach, and we were happily surprised at the reasonable price. The pool area was cute as could be, even though we didn't...

This is a charming little boutique hotel. Don't expect large fancy rooms it's a simple beach themed property, with a comfortable bed.mmwhat makes it special iAds the beach front rooms. They rooms are maybe 50 feet from the soothing gently crashing waves. The sun sets over the edge of catalina island, so be sure to grab some champagne and a...

After reading the negative reviews on here, I called and begged to be upgraded to a renovated room fearing what the others looked like. I booked the room for such a low rate that I knew it had to be the dreaded "Village Rooms." However, it was Valentines weekend and I was too late in asking for an upgrade. The...

Wow...the location at this hotel is unbelievable. Our room was facing the beach, and was 100 percent worth the money, so spend that little bit more on a sea view room. The sunset was beautiful, especially being able to watch it from the balcony. Our room was also lovely, very modern and stylish. In fact this was one of the...

Our room (138) is kind of like a Motel 6 on steroids. Magnificent views. We're perched on the top floor (3rd.) overlooking the ocean which is literally at the base of the hotel. Easy walking distance to the heart of the downtown area. I guess it's the old "location, location" scenario. The price for our mid-week (February) stay is something...

Although I'm glad you enjoyed the location, I'm sorry that the room wasn't quite what you were expecting. We definitely have a beachy feel here, and we think that our amenities and decor are reflective of that. Still, we would have been happy to bring additional towels if needed, or discuss different room options with you. Thanks for leaving that...

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
