We had originally planned to stay 3 nites but ended up staying only for one due to the smell in our room. To their credit, they moved us to another roon, albeit much smaller, but it was already late evening and they did not seemed interested in refunding us so we stayed for one nite. We did love the sound...

Thank you for the compliment regarding the properties location. I have discussed this review with the staff and have, thus far, found nobody who recalls a request for a refund instead of a move to another room so I am at a loss to give a complete response. If this reviewer would be so kind as to contact me I...

We stayed here for four days in August, two adults and two kids in room 516. If anything, the room was undersold with views of sea, crashing waves and mountains. The room was well equipped and the hotel fun and quirky. The service was exemplary, the room was clean and we loved Laguna. This was our first trip to California...

After been driving a lot each day, we really enjoyed that we could park the car and then walk everywhere we wanted to go. Beach is just next door, restaurants 5-10 minutes walk away, supermarket nearly just across the street. We enjoyed this place a lot, it was nearly like being home. It was possible to make a bbq in...

This place is in a great location, and provides everything you need for a day at the beach - beach towels, chairs, etc. It was after we returned from the beeach and needed some extra bath towels that the service went down hill. It took quite a bit of effort on my part to get more towels. Other than that...

Thank you for the review. The amazing views even keep those that live here in awe each evening enjoying the brilliant sunsets.

Not fancy, but clean and functional suite with great access to the beach. Our rooms had an ocean view but no private deck, but the decks for general use were almost always empty and had excellent views over the Pacific.

Thank you for the review and your accuracy. The Laguna Riviera strives to be a comfortable, clean, family destination with the best ocean front rates in town.

This a cute renovated motel in a fabulous location in Laguna Beach. It would be a great value fir the money, if poor service didn't mar the experience. When we first arrived, we had a cute little room. Then, it rained--and a leaky window leaked on the bed. No problem, we were upgraded to a lovely room with balcony. But...

We come here every year...off season...for a wonderful, uncrowded and relaxing getaway. We always try to get Room 201. Its all by itself, no one above or below.

Thank you for the wonderful review. 201 is truly a special room with the most incredible views, north, south and off shore to Catalina Island. It has the ability to make guests feel like they are on their own in a cliff top cottage overlooking the ocean. Thank you again and we look forward to seeing you again next year....
