Guest Reviews

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 94 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Boutique character, comfortable Best affordable hotel in the entire area. Feels like a boutique private hotel but with consistency and comfort of the major chain. Its excellent stay for comfort and seeing the area. Bedrooms don't have 'views' but who needs that in a beautiful town like Laguna Beach when one should be walking the art lined streets and eating al-fresco. Always knowing there is a friendly smile and comfortable bed just minutes walk from anywhere in the area. August 18, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Stay at Laguna Holiday Inn wonderful experience. The staff is very helpful and it is accessible to all the fun in Laguna Beach as well as the Art Festivals. Park at the Hotel and ride the free trolley to all the events from right out front of the Hotel. August 15, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good location This hotel was centrally located and had good parking. Close to lots of shops and dining. August 15, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great location Enjoyed the location to beach, restaurants and shopping. The grounds were well kept and clean. We would stay again. August 12, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Summer at Holiday Inn The hotel location is great but for the summer rates they charge, it is not worth the stay. The carpets appeared dirty and smelly and the air conditioning kept us up at night. The staff was nice. August 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A Great Stay! I have been booking an annual stay for our group of 12-16 people for the last 5 years. Karen always helps me with the booking and she is great! She is so helpful and works with me every year. I don't ever want to stay anywhere else. This year we had 8 rooms for a weekend and it was the best. We love the hotels location and the beautiful grounds. All of the staff are friendly and so helpful. The complimentary water, coffee and popcorn in the lobby are a real added pleasure. I would absolutely recommend this Holiday Inn to anyone coming to Laguna Beach. It's a 10 in my book! August 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Time in Laguna This hotel and staff was perfect for our weekend during the Sawdust Festival. Will definetly stay there again. August 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Tremendous value for your money One of the better rates for hotels in the area. Never sure if that's a good thing. In this case, they surpassed our expectations. Walking distance of beach, stores. Staff were great. Hotel restaurant was excellent. Typically, we have had mediocre-at-best experiences with hotel restaurants. Food was great along with the service. We will be back and we will stay here again. Thank you! August 3, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Stay in Laguna Beach Had a wonderful family stay at the Holiday Inn in Laguna Beach. This is a small property and very much like a boutique hotel, but with all the convenience and perks of a national chain. Staff was great and accommodating - we were able to check in early and were also upgraded to a terrific two room suite (thanks!). Each room of the suite had French doors opening onto a breezeway where we could sit and relax and even offered some view of the ocean. The rooms encircle a very scenic courtyard that includes a great pool, seating areas, the outdoor dining area of the nice Italian restaurant, and dozens of beautiful flowers Very pleased with every aspect of the stay. Beach access is across the street, and the location is convenient to shopping and dining. July 28, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great location/small rooms/comfortable beds Can easily walk right into the heart of DT Laguna Beach. Friendly staff. Grocery store right across the street with refrigerator in room. July 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great location and relaxing atmosphere Proximity to Laguna Beach village and the beach are ideal. Simple and relaxing environment. July 23, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Beautiful 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. July 22, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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). July 20, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 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. July 20, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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! July 16, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Beds This room had the most comfortable beds I have slept in a long time. Great location, right across from the ocean, walking distance to town. July 15, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable bed ,beautiful hotel, great service and clean rooms Love the hotel,it looked like European style with beautiful garden and Spanish style balconies,the rooms were very clean and welcoming,love the pool and lobby,the complimentary coffee,sodas,popcorn,water and etc. the crew was very nice,the only thing that bothered me is the air condition,was a bit loud,overall I would recommend everyone...and i would definitely come back to this hotel... July 13, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by beautiful place to stay great value and very comfortable hotel - I stay here each time I have business in Laguna Beach . I also enjoy the hotel's proximity to the beach (right across the street) July 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Room Accomedations 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. July 8, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Caring staff and friendly service 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. July 7, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Enjoyable stay Clean and comfortable rooms and beds. Very quiet to sleep at night. Nice location convenient to restuarants and shops in Laguna. Family friendly. July 3, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by very comfortable bed and great service I would definately recommend this hotel,it is in a very convenient location,clean comfortable, easy to get your car,grocery store across the street,,in walking distance to town and many restaurants,pool was clean, towels handy overall great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent location and accommodations Great spot with superior beach access, wonderful bar and restaurant, and convenient to all town activities. July 3, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great staff,and location Really worked well for family vacation. Loved the setting, staff was very friendly and helpful. June 30, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. June 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great staff and location. Location was wonderful. Access to the beach was easy and there were ppeanty of shops and restaurants to choose. Staff at the hotel were very friendly and helpful. June 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent location, excellent staff 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. June 28, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable bed and genuinely kind staff Wonderful location, hotel had the feel of an Italian Villa. The staff were genuinely kind and helpful. Convenient to restaurants and shops. We enjoyed the pool and patio very much. Basically...didn't want to leave! June 26, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Not Your Father's Holiday Inn Great location, great food, great service. It exceeded all my expectations for a 'Holiday Inn'. June 15, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Very comfortable bed and great pillows. We thought for the price it would be more updated,but the bed and sheets where awesome! June 4, 2014
