Nice location, great staff, needs a deep cleaning

On the surface it's a very nice hotel, wonderful staff and awesome location on the beach, but we were place at the end of the hall by the stairs and the outdoor stairs area were really really worn down, gross carpet outdoor along outdoor hallway to get to the rooms. So a face lift in some areas would help a lot to bring it up to match the initial image of the hotel. The breakfast was exceptional and the view is perfection.

Decent hotel at the water's edge.

Pros: Walking straight down to the sand & beach, complementary chairs, umbrella & towels (+ staff to bring them to you and set up) are the reasons to stay.
Cons: Website should mention that they DON'T have A/C! The sand-filled pool crammed with children jumping in w/their boogie boards! No supervision :(
Location: Centrally located to beach, downtown, restaurants, Festival of the Arts, etc.
Beautiful hotel, but for the price, we honestly expected more. The room overlooking the sand & surf was very nice, marred by the fact that THERE IS NO A/C. Not a huge deal the majority of the year, but this past weekend was a scorcher, so coming into the room (even with the sliding doors left open) was like walking into an oven. There is a ceiling fan, but it's not enough when the temperature skyrockets. The hotel is much smaller than one might expect from the website photos. The front lounge (adjacent to the driveway) is nice and large, but the restaurant and bar are tiny. The beach staff was very nice -- the front desk needs serious help and training. Stopping at the front desk, we asked if they could send a new comforter (ours was old and lumpy) and a plumber up in 2 hours (we needed to sleep before heading back out). Walked up to the room, and ten minutes later the phone rang - it was the front desk, saying the repair man was at our door. We said we requested someone coming in 2 hours, and the front desk rep said "Well, he's at your door NOW." At least the sink got fixed. Fifteen minutes later, knocking at the door. I woke up to find a housekeeper there with a comforter. Half-asleep, I asked why she was there now. She said the front desk didn't give her a time to arrive. I pointed out the DO NOT DISTURB card posted in the key slot, and she said "I thought that was there by accident." Asked her to return later, and she said "Can't I just leave it with you?" :(

Location Location Location

The location was fabulous. We checked in at 4 - however, our room was not available. We finally got in and had an amazing view. The hotel does not have A/C, so we had to keep the slider open - I love waves, however, with the loud waves outside our balcony and both fans running, it was hard to get to sleep.

Lovely hotel.

Pros: Location
Cons: More channels to choose from - TV. The cost of ordering movies was rather high.
Location: Laguna Beach is a great 'get out of LA for the weekend' place. Good restaurants and bars. Nice people.
I had a very good experience. Bright, clean, and comfortable room. The Staff was very attentive and welcoming.
