Reviewed yesterday NEW

Easy check in, clean, no additional hidden fees, would stay again, had good towels, walk to beach, not all the noise of traffic if you stayed right downtown. Safe, traveled solo, feeling safe is extremely important to me.

I was very pleased with the hotel and staff. The beds are very comfortable and convenient to get into town as well. I think it is a very good deal for the value. I will be going back again. They have done a very nice job with the remodel. Make sure to pick up your coffee cups and coffee supplies...

we started staying here a few years ago when we couldn't find another hotel in the area. we fell in love! the owners son worked the front desk and he was so nice! rooms were upgraded and they served a pretty decent continental breakfast. Fast forward a few years and it's all gone a little down hill. prices are up,...

Very nice place for us! Simple, basic, comfortable. Had a refrigerator so we could keep basic breakfast/lunch items on hand. Two blocks from the beach. Just blocks from downtown Laguna shopping and main beach. Within 5-10 minutes of Crystal State Park and beach, historic sites, Shake Shack, Beach Comber. Short distance to Dana Point for Whale watching excursion. Good value!

Convenient location to the beaches, dining, and shopping. Added positively to our experience in Laguna Beach. We would recommend this place. Great value for price. Two drawbacks - weak WiFi and only 2 pillows on beds.

I picked the Crescent Bay Inn for our vacation and family visit in south California. The pictures on tripadvisor and the reviews convinced me AND you really get what you see on the pictures. The building complex itself does not even nearly comply to what we found within the rooms. The outside is not pretty, its like an old motel....

Several things, our plans changed and we decided to stay in Laguna Beach. Basically all of the hotels were full. This place had a few rooms left. The location is great, the update that they have done is very nice. At first, the guy checking us in was not in a good mood but after talking to him for a...

This is an older, but remodeled motel. It has three separate units (each with about 10 rooms) with the rooms on the second floor and parking underneath. All three face towards the ocean, but only the last unit (closest to ocean) might have a small view of the water. The remodeling was nice at the time it was done, but...

We stayed here because the pictures and reviews were all fantastic. When we showed up the first impression of the sweet girl in the lobby and the remodel in there was impressive. once we got our keys and room number we realized that we had a step up into our room even though we had asked for an accessible room...

Stayed here for Spring Break 2017. For the price at the time this was the best value we could find in Laguna Beach through our TripSpin travel portal. Rooms have been remodeled and are nice. Showers are really nice with overhead shower head. Carpets, however, were dirty and turned our feet black. Covered parking was good. There are only upstairs...
