Reviewed 4 February 2011

When I made a reservation in Aug of 2010 for Jan 2011 (MLK weekend), I was told that Room #401 would be closed due to remodeling. I asked if the remodeling were completed before that date, I would like to be placed on the waiting list. The receptionist said that they could do it. I reserved suite #306 in the...

I am very sorry that after so many years of visiting and enjoying the Laguna Riviera that this valued guest has given us a 2 and has indicated that they would not recommend a property they have enjoyed for at least a decade. Unfortunately, their review has been posted without having all of the facts, or a clear understanding of...

The hotel was really cute and great value for the location. The lady who works nights was very nice allowing us to park in two spaces with our large SUV when a guy took up too much room with his mega truck. The only downside was how thin the walls were. On our last night we were subject to a...

Thank you for the kind words and nice review. We listen to all comments and adopt ideas when they make sense. Even though we recently implemented several enhancements to isolate rooms from outside and adjacent sounds, in some areas, it can be a challenge. We will be stocking the front desk with complementary ear plugs for anyone who wishes to...

Thank you for the compliments about the nice hot salt water pool and our great location. I am surprised that you did not find your room perfectly clean and would like to know which room and when you stayed. Our house keeping staff is dedicated to providing exceptionally clean rooms and their performance is constantly monitored. Please call me at...

Laguna Riviera continues to be the perfect place to enjoy R&R and escape from cold Seattle. I returned December 26 - January 1 to share a very comfortable suite with my parents. Room 401 gave us ample room with lovely kitchen (with table seating 4), bathroom, private bedroom for my folks and pull out couch for me. We enjoyed the...

The good: It is on the beach with beach access; walkable to downtown area The bad: So called “free” internet access was about 15 minutes in the evening (I could not get back on). When I phoned the front desk the comment was that the computer in the office was working, so it had to be my computer! I was...

I am sorry that this guest had a less than perfect stay. I have reviewed the registration records and she stayed one night on New Years Eve which can be loud just about anywhere.

We stayed in room 306 for a week in December of 2010. For an extended stay, the maid service was very important to us and we were not disappointed. The room and hotel grounds were well kept and very clean. The room was spacious and well furnished with a beautiful view. Every room is different, so be sure to compare...

We pride ourselves on delivering the true Laguna Experience and part of that is providing a variety of room formats each comfortably appointed and unique. We have recently partnered with...

The hotel doesn't look like much from the street and we never had a chance to check out the pool or amenities but we loved the 3 bedroom beach bungalow. I had a business trip to Anaheim and my grown kids suggested a holiday trip for Christmas. We love Laguna Beach but could not afford the high prices of Surf...

I spent three nights at the Laguna Riviera, and will definitely be back. It's a delightful example of California quirky, with mural covered outdoor corridors and beach wall. The hotel was right on the beach (accessed down a switchback ramp), and there is free off-street parking. I had room 516 at the top, and had a wonderful view out to...
