Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PageantAttendee Solid Selection for Pageant of the Masters
WIth a location directly on the Laguna Shuttle line, this is a solid choice for Pageant of the Masters attendees. Staff very friendly. Note $15/day parking fee. Rooms can be slightly stuffy, even with air conditioning, but I have heard there are refirbishments in process.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Family from Stockholm Wonderful, charming Hotel
Charming and lovely hotel at best location in Laguna Beach. All rooms are located around the beautiful pool with a outdoor/indoor restaurant in one end of the area. Very stylish and we can recommend this hotel. It has a soul. Friendly staff and good food makes it even better.

Very nice hotel. The grounds are very clean with a beautifully landscaped courtyard pool. The rooms are pretty standard, but the excellent staff, beautiful grounds and great location made this a perfect choice for our stay. I would absolutely stay here again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by FM55 Great location, nice hotel
We stayed here for one night when we came to see the Pageant of the Masters. The hotel was very conveniently located for the beach and all the town amenities. It was very clean and comfortable with a nice restaurant and pool.
The air conditioning inside the room and outside was very noisy and the Courtyard lights outside of the room made it very light at night and difficult to sleep.
I felt the price we paid was very expensive for a nice but basic hotel. However, I think that is the case in Laguna Beach at this time of year.
All in all a pleasant stay and I would recommend this hotel to others.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by gsfeab 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.

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.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by AF07/24 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DPDeb 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!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Griz618 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!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jeff 2000 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.

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!

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.
