From the moment our party checked-in to the moment we checked-out we were in excellent care. The hotel is located right by the beach with a lot of cute shops near by. The staff were very friendly and the hotel was beautiful, imagine a little Italy, with pink flowers covering the hotel walls.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jennifer Jane As good as any
Hotel staff (especially front desk positions) excellent; would suspect cleaning crew overworked, nonetheless pleasant. Facility could do with major updating. Appreciated central courtyard room away from traffic, but some guests up late and inconsiderate (noisy).

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by rick3312 location is saving grace
we went to be close to downtown laguna to catch the art festival. all is walking distance and i have knee issues! so a plus there.
hated the cell like room due to design of the lower floor. no elevator down so stairs had to be used all the time.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by snufalufagus I would come back!
This hotel is in a great location and is very comfortable for the price. 2-3 blocks to the beach or the center of downtown and located right on the PCH. Older property and typical Holiday Inn style rooms and grounds, but has been taken care of and is kept clean. Pool and courtyard in the center of the property is nice but far from a "resort" style pool. It has a very nice sit down restaurant and bar downstairs. Two blocks away is "The Deck" and "Driftwood Kitchen". Great restaurants on the beach with sunset views. Next door to that is a beach rental place for chairs, umbrellas, and water toys. Enjoy!

The beds were extremely comfortable, the pillows were very soft, lighting in the room for sleeping was nice and dark. Very little outside noise could be heard. Pool was very relaxing after spending the day at the beach.

My 86 year old mother-in-law came with us and stayed at the Holiday Inn. She had been coming to Laguna for 40 years and this was her first time coming without her husband who had died a few months ago. The staff was extremely friendly and considerate and made her feel happy every time she walked into the lobby. They were so thoughtful of her needs. We will definitely stay there again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by dls1023 End-of-school-year escape
This 6th grade teacher SOOOO needed the time and place to decompress and relax at the end of a hectic school year. This hotel was EXACTLY what I needed it to be. From the ease of check in to the equal ease of check out the entire experience was restful and relaxing.
If you are looking to just sit and read a book or put your feet in some cool water, you need go no farther than the courtyard.
If sand and surf are your thing, the beach is across the street, and for shoppers, it's an easy walk to the center of town.
Laguna beach has many great restaurants, but if you just want to stay close, Ralphs is across one corner, Taco Bell across another, and a great little local spot is on the third corner.
I'll be back next summer. In the meantime, I hope they will replace the loud old window air conditioners. If that happens it will go from great to perfect.

I traveled with my daughter and 2 teen age grandchildren. The location was within walking distance of all shops and restaruants and steps to the beach directly accross the street. The popcorn provided in the lobby was an added treat. Room was a little cramped for 4 but the staff was very accomodating and provided a roll away bed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BeachFan17 Great find!
My usual hotel was already booked when we decided to go on our trip to Laguna Beach this May. So I found this Holiday Inn online. It was a nice small, pretty property with easy access to the beach! We just had a standard room, but it worked fine. The only issues we had were that our room wasn't ready at check-in, but they got us in within 20 minutes or so. Also, the pool is heated, but it is still chilly. Other than that, service was great and the price was reasonable. I would definitely stay here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wayne & Shelley A great fit for experiencing and exploring Laguna Beach
This hotel is in a great location and reflects the quaint and rustic charm that one expects in such a historic location. The brief walk to the beach and downtown takes you by a number of fine restaurants and boutiques.
The suites are very large with a great floorplan and spacious bathroom! They are situated at the upper end of the property, which allows for maximum privacy.
The hotel staff was incredibly friendly, courteous and professional in making sure our stay was thoroughly enjoyable. Most hotels respectfully treat you like a paying customer. This Holiday Inn treats you like you are their personal guest. We are already planning to stay here on our next visit to Laguna Beach in March 2015

Beautiful grounds and exceptional service, which you, unfortunately, rarely meet these days. The manager and frond desk staff were truly professional, doing their best to accommodate all of our requests. Thank you very much for all the courtesies extended to us during our stay.

I am moving to Northern CA and for two weekends need a place to stay until my new place is ready. I found the HI Laguna as I have had friends stay here in the past. What a wonderful hotel. I know this is an older hotel prior to being an HI. I am glad you did not change anything in terms of rooms and layout. It is wonderful and relaxing.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by GoodMannersMatter28 Check In Stress and Rude Staff
Modified reservations early in week only to find that the hotel cancelled our reservations completely. Then, the front desk clerk seemed very irritated at us, as if it were our fault regarding the mix-up with the reservations. We had called the hotel directly to modify reservations from 2 nights to 1 night. To cover all bases we called the 800 number for reservations & priority club points on Monday also, for our Saturday stay. Yet, was still a mess upon arrival! Area surrounding hotel is super, Laguna Beach experience awesome. Hotel rooms small, older, over-priced, and noisy. We always stay at Holiday Inn's BUT If you aren't spending much time in hotel room, or on property, and don't care how staff treats you - GO FOR IT, otherwise book elsewhere.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Dkbrady52 Needs improvement
I am a gold member and I was extremely disappointed with this property. The room was extremely small for the price. The vent in the bathroom had so much dust accumulated -- it looked like it had never been cleaned. The water smelled like suffer and the refrigerator door feel off when opened. I order from the restaurant once and the orange juice I ordered never came. The only positive thing I can say about the room is that the bed was very comfortable. I expected more being in a very high rent area such as Laguna Beach.

I stayed at the Holiday Inn for about 2 weeks until I found my apartment, I just recently moved here. The staff was great and really helpful. My rooms were always nice and there's a great restaurant to eat at below. I would definitely stay there again and recommend anyone staying there!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by ArbyE Older facility, but comfortable
Staff were excellent: courteous and friendly.
The facility was a bit dated. Wall paper was peeling in our room on the corner adjoining the bathroom, and the rug had certainly seen better days. Lighting was less than desired for bed reading. Parking was tight in the back lot. Overnight parking there in the lot is a substantial extra charge, on top of the room charges. The in-room coffee machine was situated in a cubby hole under the TV, and difficult to access.
Overall, OK for an in-town stay, but pricey for what you get, which is pretty average facilities.
