I have stayed at this hotel many times. I have traveled here as a single female traveler and felt completely safe. I have come here before with my husband and kids for the time of our life. My favorite time here has been renting an ocean view room in the Reef building, simply to sit on the balcony for 10...

There's nothing like some quiet time on the balcony to enjoy this gorgeous view. We're so glad you and your family have made so many memories with us, and we can't wait to create even more. Until next time, thank you for your kind words -- they mean the world to us! See you next month, Thomas Lee General Manager

As soon as we walked into the lobby area, we were greeted with smiles and a friendly "Hello" from staff. I have never stayed here before and did not know what to expect. We were also upgraded to a partial view room that was not on the beach but we could see it from our room over the hotel building...

This is my 6th or 7th time staying at Pacific Edge, i will never stay anywhere else in Laguna! The location is unsurpassed. The hotel staff is top notch every single time; and i mean the entire staff. The valets, the beach attendant, the maid service, and the front desk all are spot on and have been each time i...

I took my mom to the Pacific Edge for her 80th birthday in September, 2014 and we both loved it. We had a room on the second floor overlooking the beach, which was beautiful. At night we kept our door to the balcony slightly open so we could hear the surf. The room was very bright and sunny with bright...

You can't beat the location if you are in the wing that sits right on the ocean. Loud waves and a lot of activity on the rented rented cabana open space below if you keep your door open. But they shut it down at 10pm. I think the price is very high due to location, but the rooms are dated...

You are definitely paying for the location of this hotel. We loved eveything about Laguna and what it had to offer, a completely different feel to the rest of California. We enjoyed our stay at the hotel but mainly for its gorgeous location right on the beach. The rooms are tired and really need some money spending on them especially...

I was concerned about all of the negative reviews for this hotel. Very wary of our little weekend trip, BUT pleasantly surprised! Having done loads of research on beachfront lodging (whether it's a house, hotel or motel) the going price for an inexpensive oceanfront room is typically $400 nightly and the variables are far and wide. For $200 we secured...

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
