This was not a good experience for my wife. I prepaid for a room with a King Bed and an ocean view. The room she was placed in faced the ocean... but because of overgrowth in front of the balcony... the only view was of bushy trees. (picture attached). Josh claimed HE could see the ocean from the room... but...

We just had a wonderful long weekend at Crescent Bay. Great beach access, and close to town and grocery; friendly and helpful staff rounding out a great visit! We'll be back when we get a chance again. A Laguna gem.

Overall, I would stay here again for a short visit. The "average" rating is primarily due to two things: the noise level and the outdated exterior. So Laguna can be a little snooty, and this place is not at all that way. There aren't a lot of amenities (no ironing board, no conditioner, no mini-bar) and from the outside, it...

Simple check in,very clean, no additional hidden fees. I would definitely stay again, and very accommodating staff. The beds were also comfortable. It was priced well for the location and very close to my business destination.

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...

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....

“Don't choose Room 302 - Building 3 is the best because of the ocean view, but try and get to the opposite end of the fire pit.”
