Laguna Beach, CA is the perfect summer hideaway for travelers, a city where you’re never far from the ocean. Even the city’s name conjures up thoughts of crystal clear waters, sandy escapes and sun drenched afternoons. It’s a charming place where you can still hop a trolley and take a tour through town.
Once you leave the doors of your Laguna Beach hotel its recommended to take a stroll through Heisler Park, a welcoming stretch of beach that has a habit of washing away any stress you brought with you. While it may be a bit of a jaunt, Thousand Steps Beach also offers quiet and seclusion to sun worshippers -- though bringing a surfboard will put you in good company too. Walk the shores and woodlands of Crystal Cove State Park, a picturesque outdoor sanctuary with restaurants just a few steps from the beach. If you’re lucky, you might catch a glimpse of dolphins in the water offshore, an area that’s been designated as an underwater park. See more animals and learn of the inspiring rescues and rehabilitation work being done at the Pacific Marine Mammal Center.
The city is also full of art and color. A public art tour will take you past over 70 fixtures, while a visit to the galleries at Artist’s Village will have you reaching for your wallet. The Laguna Art Museum boasts some of the area’s coolest exhibits, with a special focus on Californian art. Catch a show at the Laguna Playhouse, the oldest continuously operating theatre on the West Coast. The “HIP” district offers another fantastic collection of galleries, restaurants and boutiques that will pacify any shopaholic.

I stayed here with a group of friends coming back from a trip to Mexico. We had a total of four suites. Since we were dog-tired and I had chosen the hotel, I was a hopeful that everyone would be[More]
happy with our rooms. We were! Check in was a breeze; the girl working the desk was pleasant and answered all our questions. She showed us a list of dvds we could check out for free. They also offered free washer/dryer services, books, gym, and board games.
The room was not that big, but was clean and the bed was comfy. The kitchenette had everything needed to make a meal; a sign posted offered a blender or any other kitchen appliance needed from the front desk. The bathroom was clean and had a nice shower head with great flow. The only ding they get is that the bathroom sink plug didn't work; my hubby wanted to fill the sink to shave and couldn't get it to stay closed. If we had been staying more than one night, we would have asked for it to be fixed. We would definitely stay here again. [Less]
