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.

Looks like a new hotel, very clean and convenient. Although I did not get to use them, there was a gym and laundry area conveniently located on the ground floor. There was also a self-serve[More]
convenience store and lockers with appliances one could borrow.
Room kitchen had a good size refrigerator with ice maker in the freezer. 2-burner stove and kitchenware were great.
Desk was large and desk chair was very nice touch. Extra chair and couch in room also convenient.
Large bathroom with lots of towels. Did not need extra towels during one week stay.
Was not aware that this was an extended stay hotel. There was no room cleaning provided during my stay (less than 7 days). I had to stop by front desk to pick up toilet paper and bath soap. Front desk personnel were always in back and I had to get their attention whenever I stopped by. [Less]
This was our family's fourth trip to Disneyland and our first stay here. Amazing staff, excellent (and surprisingly inexpensive) food at the bistro. Our room was clean, cool and comfortable. This[More]
place is a little gem in the sea of resorts and big hotels. We will never stay anywhere else in the area again. And the staff...super friendly, helpful and genuine! [Less]
