Suite at the Montage was fantastic with views to die for - great property with paths to the beach. The room had a comfortable bed, plenty of closet space, the room was made up at night with turn down service - overall one of our favorite places of all time, ever! Food items a little pricy ($100+) for 2 omelets and Belgium waffles for breakfast and while we like nice places to stay we often find that the "high end" food is a little too gourmet for our tastes and we found ourselves not eating on the property after the first day.
Pool The Ocean View Room was not Really an Ocean view. We had to spend a lot more to get a slight view of ocean.
Swimming pool and sea view were so beautiful the room is a little small
The views No air conditioning
Location, rooms. Customer service could be better, we requested an early check in which they said was not a problem, we got there around 11am their regular check in is at 4:00pm, they told us our room wasn't ready yet but it would be ready soon. 4 hours later and still wasn't, they finally call us around 3:15pm to tell us that our room was ready, so we went to check in and when we said our name they told us it was a mistake that our room wasn't ready yet! So finally we check in at 3:50 pm, I guess still an early check in right? To top it off, when we received our bill, they charged us for a wrong service for almost $100 more! I don't know if we will be back.
Hotel is directly on the beach, and I mean, at high tide, 15 feet from the surf. All rooms face the ocean. Romantic dining restaurant with views of the ocean. There are floodlights illuminating the surf so you can see the ocean while you dine. Below the restaurant is a very cool bar, also, directly on the beach. Excellent location as they say. The pool sundeck is nice and the valet service was good. pool was heated and there is a jacuzzi. The property is older and they can charge the money because of their location. You wouldn't pay this amount if the property wasn't on the beach. Byzantine design and labyrinth of hallways makes for a confusing layout and difficult to get anywhere on the property. The pool is not a resort pool and is only the size and shape of something you would encounter at any discount chain motel. There is no separation of brats from the spa and pool so peace and quiet in those areas with your honey will be difficult.
Booked an ocean-front room. It was 1/2 level above the pool and walkway to rooms. No way you could leave the blinds open to enjoy the view without people staring in. Asked for another room and was told none available; this at 3:40 pm. There we still lots of people checking in later. I believe that because I did not book directly, I was not given priority on this and below. And, arrived at 2:00 pm and told we could not check in until 4:00 pm. We were not offered a hospitality room and found later that they had them. When we did check in, were informed that check out was by noon. So, though rented a room for a day...it was really 20 hrs. We were given a dining credit, but in no way made up for the room. And then.....there was the non-operating elevator. After staying at the hotel 20+ times in the past on business, I will not return.
Great cozy place
This was a nice and comfortable resort with clean rooms and decent food. Rooms have been updated and decor is a hybrid of transitional contemporary and traditional. WiFi was good and Staff was friendly. If you're an ATT mobile subscriber, the cell signal was weak. You will have to switch to calling over WiFi.
I didn't like much. My experience was horrible here. We were lied to by the staff. Due to their lies, we ended up stranded at the event we were attending. We booked this hotel specifically for the free shuttle, and even made sure of times and venue location that it would all work out. Well, it didn't and the customer service desk did NOTHING to resolve. What an awful experience! I will never stay there again!
Reliable excellent service and accommodations! We are always impressed with our experience at Ayres!
The room was very large and very comfortable. The facilities were very clean and aesthetically pleasing, although I was unable to spend much time there due to a business conference I was attending. I read good things about the restaurant, however, was unable to check it out for the same reasons. I was given the opportunity to check-in before noon and to request additional towels, both of which I selected. However, upon arrival I was told that I was unable to check-in early AND that, even if possible, it would cost an additional $40. Furthermore, I did not receive additional towels. So, my question became, why even offer these things if you're not going to provide them upon request.
liked the restaurant in the courtyard There were large bugs in our bathroom -- unacceptable
I'm a Pastor and I asked for a 1pm checkout due to a wedding ceremony I was performing in Huntington Beach at 4pm. Initially I was told no problem. I called on Saturday morning to confirm and my request was denied. Staff did not apologize, offer any solutions and I was very disappointed.
Everything about the hotel was really really good. It is such a good value for the money. The beds were very comfortable the room was very clean and the staff was very friendly wouldn't hesitate to stay there again anytime.
I was a beautiful place to stay, clean and the staff was great. I would surely go back and stay longer for pleasure this time!!!!!
The parking structure is excellent in an area that's hard to park. The location, even though it's a bit south from the action is good. The views from the room and deck are also great. The room is plenty spacious and well layed out. Would stay again. The staff is so, so. Erin was great and gave us an upgrade which we are grateful for. But other staff were not so helpful. The air conditioner is either on or off. If you set a temperature, it simply ignores it. I tried to get it fixed with no result. I was told that all air conditioners work that way. I needed some ice and finally found it on the third floor. The machine was out of order with a sign that says to use the one on the second floor. The layout is difficult to say the least. When I couldn't find it, I asked the front desk where it would be and was told that's in the garage and the entry is through the second floor. Enough said.
Great staff, hotel and overall experience. Very well maintained. Clean and they pay attention to the little things. The staff went out of their way to make sure our stay was great. We will defiantly be staying there again next trip without a doubt. The one thing that stood out to me immediately was the doors to the rooms.. they were structured in a way to be secure, safe and worry free when you left the room. A little pricy, but honestly you get your money's worth.
I love the location and the room. I did not like that no one informed me that paying for beach-side view would include the 7am wake up from street construction crew that was directly below me. Jackhammers going at 8am which at that point I decided to not extend my stay and check out! If I had known I would have never even stayed there in the first place!!!
Location,location. Aliso Viejo beach is always our destination beach, when we go into the laguna area. Very convenient location. We were a little worried when we arrived to our front hotel room, to find it was right next to the breakfast area. It actually turned out to be a perfect location, woke up and strolled right next door to eat. Food was great! Great access into the city after breakfast. No complaints, will definitely be back.
Breakfast, view, accessible! Great deal for the money! Pool was kind of shabby, needed upgrade. Very difficult to get in n out of bathtub for showering!
Location was amazing and price was great. Pool, breakfast and view was our favorite. Our room was on the first floor and when we walked in we noticed it was damp in the room. Then we noticed that our room was half underground. So we figured for 1 night, with the location and price that we would just deal with it. Later that night after going out for cocktails and dinner we came back into the room to find that it was still really damp like an old basement even with the air conditioning on high for hours. After reading all the ridiculous rules and instructions about the whirlpool we got in to find out non of the controls worked so it was an all or nothing experience. Hours later in the middle of the night I awoke to the air conditioning make loud noises. In the morning I found that the carpet around the whirlpool was wet due to some kind of leak from the water closet. Also no air conditioning in the bathroom. All and all the place was very nice but they didn't offer any discount or anything for our experience. *don't stay on the first floor.
TOO LARGE THROUGHT IT WAS A BOUTIQU
I stayed a long weekend here with my friend and the lovely people at hotel Irvine really made us feel like welcome guests! From the complimentary bikes, to the Friday night movie on the lawn, to the friendly and delightful staff, every minute here was relaxing and stress-free. My friend has severe food allergies which the staff graciously and professionally worked arround for her. It really meant a lot to be able to enjoy my mini-vacation knowing that everything we needed was being taken care of. Thank you so much!
Impressive, grand entry, airily quick check-in, comfortable beds, clean shower Music at the bar was so loud you couldn't hold a conversation. In addition the check-in attendant never told me details, such check-out time or that a continental breakfast was included ( I had to ask the next morning). They seemed rushed and ready for the next customer. Another issue was non-smoking on a designated non-smoking floor. I smelled smoke as I slept and saw butts on the carpet in the hallway. Lastly, breakfast was limited to toast, cold cereal, yogurt, and hard-boiled eggs.
The hotel is centrally located and six minutes from the airport, making it a great choice if you've an early morning departure or late night arrival. Our room was very quiet. The Marketplace was great for snacks and provided a good selection of tasty foods. The staff was friendly and the bed comfortable. The parking fee of $22-24 per night seems excessive for a suburb like Irvine which is pretty much made of concrete, shopping malls and parking lots. The sink drain didn't work properly, one of my pet peeves in a hotel in any price category and unexpected in this type of hotel.
Pool was great! Lots of space and fun games around the pool. Rooms were nice, good breakfast and fun bar/lounge
I liked the pool, room size, little market downstairs with reasonable prices, location to where I was going and the feel of the hotel. There is a mini refrigerator that you can fill up. I like the concept, instead of an overpriced minibar. The front desk was confused as to when breakfast ended. (We were told 8am which is ridiculous, but it was actually 9:30.) we missed a few days due to thinking we missed it. The carpet and little features could be updated, but for the most part it was clean. We would stay again.
I had a problem with another room being extremely loud and disruptive,, the front desk and security took care of the situation, quickly. Also, the GM comped my valet charges...still not what I expected from a hotel like this.
Comfort No room service Weird shower stall that is made so its hard to reach handles
We loved our room with a view. Even though the hotel was busy with dance competition and softball teams, our room was quiet and service was great. We will definitely be back soon!
Good hotel, excellent location. Clean and comfortable. The music in the lobby is a bit loud.
Loved the market place and the Dj at the bar in the evenings!
The grounds, the staff was friendly and helpful, bed was comfy, pool area and 24 hour marketplace were very nice. Paying for parking, odd odor on the different floors, no cold water, half-closed shower door.
The renovations really turned LB House into something special. Staff are great people. Location is amazing. Rooms are great. I grew up in Laguna Beach and often the hotels seem to assume that Laguna will "sell itself" and they don't have to put the effort in, but this hotel isn't like that. Nothing I don't like about LB House. Place is sweet.
Our stay was absolutely wonderful. The room was big and gorgeous, the pool and amenities were lovely, and the staff was very warm. The homemade milk and cookies at night and yogurt and granola in the morning sealed the deal. We missed the wine hour but I'm sure it was lovely. For a birthday getaway, this place was wonderful. We would definitely come back again! Thank you!
The staff is very friendly and accommodating The housekeeping in the room was not very good. The robe was not hung up. The bathtub and basin did not drain very well. The room was a bit noisy from people sitting out by the pool. The air conditioning was very loud and not very effective. The room had a stale air from lack of circulation.
The room was clean and had a great view of the ocean The tub needs to be replaced. It was old and looked like it seen better days.
The Laguna Beach House was recently renovated by new owners, so everything was very clean, white and bright, with excellent beach décor, comfortable beds and a hip vibe. The people at the front desk were so kind and helpful, making restaurant suggestions and offering to make reservations. They even offer an umbrella, towels and chairs to take down to the beach a short 5 minute walk away. We will be back! Nothing. Stay was fantastic.
From the excellent staff to the well appointed rooms, we enjoyed our stay The check in was easy. The staff gave us excellent information about the hotel and area. The room was comfortable and the mini bar and selections were great. We enjoyed the cookie time The pool and spa were clean and easily assessible. The fire pit was warm with great music playing.
Helpful and friendly staff upgraded my teenage son and I to 2 queen beds (only 1 King was available online when I booked). The rooms were lovely and clean, very comfy beds. Located walking distance to beach. Great pool, hot tub, fire pit for evening/afternoon use. Had a great time. Had a downstairs room and the ceiling/floor above was very squeaky so when occupants above moved around you could hear every step...difficult to sleep through.
Great staff, comfortable rooms. A little noisy off of 101 but not too bad.
We only stayed one night but felt so comfortable the moment we walked in. You can park right in the hotel for only $15 a day and it is just a few steps into the hotel from the parking garage! There are only 36 rooms so it feels more comfortable then a large hotel. The rooms are so cute and fit the beach vibe. The staff are very nice and helpful. They had a bunch of great amenities like, milk and cookies at the end of the night, wine hour, a fire pit down by the pool to hang out by, and coffee/yogurt & granola in the morning. We will be coming back for a longer stay!
Awesome location, great value. The whole "surf hotel" vibe is well done. You can walk right into town along the beachfront promenade. As a added bonus, the hotel coffee is actually pretty good.
Wonderful location near Heisler Park and walk to town, beach, restaurants. Staff was exceptionally friendly, helpful and happy. Loved being greeted so positively! Rooms were clean and luxurious - loved balcony for morning coffee. Truly wished we stayed longer.
Mari and Javid at the front desk were great and informative. Mari even gave my Lab a treat, which was appreciated. Ocean view room was spectacular. We'll be back! Again and again. Air conditioner too loud
Beachfront room, great service Heat(not in hotel's control), but first room we were in had A/C inadequate to cool room. Changed rooms and did much better.
Location, two pools, beach access, beach toys and chairs.,.Great staff Would be great to have some basic cruiser bikes to borrow for a ride downtown and some foamy surf boards to borrow at the beach ( in addition to boogie boards, which were awesome).
We were upgraded to a beach side room which was awesome. The room had a great view. The hotels location is great. Very comfortable bed. Room was over the bar, extremely loud until bar close, which fortunately was shortly after 10pm. No parking except for valet which was ~$30/night
Near the ocean Stains all over ceiling. Bed and couch were very old and lumpy. Nowhere to lounge and be comfortable. When we checked in they laughed at me when I asked if any upgrades were available. Then they put us across from the valet stand, constantly giving us noise and chaos just outside the window. Between the bad bed and noise I never got to sleep past 9. Hot tub was yellow with urine. Kids were in it all day unattended.
The location was great, they accommodated our request to be up high so we were able to watch the sunset from our room, staff was excellent, valet is quick and treats your car with respect Room wasn't clean, found underwear behind dresser, light was missing from one of the ceilings lights, drinks left open in the fridge and hair was left on the vanity counter.
You are LITERALLY on the water when the tide comes in. Awesome!
I would have loved the beach/waterfront location if it had not been for the overcrowded beach front and hotel. This place was extremely crowded and tourist-y, more so than any other popular beach. I did not like that our hotel check in was at 4pm. Parking was terrible and you had to pay. Right when we arrived we were stressed out about waiting for people to move in front of us, park and get into our hotel room. The room smelled like a wet dog. They gave us the wrong hotel room reservation. We over paid for a hotel room we did not get. The valet tried double charging us thinking we wouldn't notice. They also double charged us for the hotel room itself and I had to call and get it refunded. The Pacific Edge Hotel is a rip off and I believe you could have more fun and a better experience somewhere else.
Bottle for body wash was filthy and should have been replaced. However, staff compensated us by deducting 50% from our parking.
Your Front Desk staff was excellent and very pleasant. Stinky room, need to change ironing board (shakes while ironing). We called your maintenance guy I forgot what it was for. That day our other group of friends got a much better deal at one of the top hotels in your area.
The front desk staff was so sweet and accommodating...I felt like I was friends with some of them by the end of my stay. The room was cozy and summery, with a cute little kitchen area and a counter with a large mirror right outside the bathroom. The beach was right down the stairs and across the valet road from our room...so close, you could hear the ocean from our room! The Deck, one of the restaurants connected to the hotel, was perfect for beach-side lunch. Proximity to town was ideal for roaming and shopping. We rented bikes around the corner and went all over the beachside part of town on back streets! I ended up booking another night's stay because I was loving the hotel and the town so much!
CJ at the front desk was helpful and Friendly Rest of the staff i encountered were also great
The roof top bar is amazing. The location is perfect for strolling and window shopping. The roof was stuffy at night.
Location was excellent with great beach access. Good value for the money. Hotel staff were excellent. Rooms were very small. I understand the Hotel is undergoing some renovation but a lot of the hotel just looked "tired". Roof top access with view, etc is incredible. Unfortunately, it is open to the public and other catered events so we were never able to get a table there in the evening. The place was absolutely packed (wall to wall people).
Brand restaurant on premises, staff was courteous and hotel was close to beach. Room was on the small side as well as bathroom
Friendly staff, few steps walk to beach, free parking, comfortable bed, bath window opens for fresh air, free breakfast. Cramped & dark room, sink outside toilet area, no coffee in room, elevator difficult to locate, parking free but across busy street/inconvenient.
I liked the rooftop atmosphere when I get was able to go up and the location. Staff was nice and the room was clean with very a comfortable bed. Breakfast was fairly decent, it was good. I didn't like that I couldn't use some of the areas the hotel offers, like I couldn't have dinner at the restaurant one of the nights I stayed due to a wedding that was happening, I couldn't go to the rooftop and have appetizers for lunch as well for the same reason. I was put in a petite room when that wasn't what I payed for, too small for 2 people, we kept bumping into each other. I was very frustrated by that. The hotel was nice but a bit dated, would I stay there again? Not sure, the small room turned me off.
The hotel was in a great location, and had an awesome rooftop bar/lounge. The room was cozy, and very comfortable. Loved the idea of the overhead fan. The carpet is old and some of the walls are cracking/chipped. The hotel should be renovated for the price they charge per room.
The guy who poured our wine was great! That's a great thing to have. The staff was great too
It was a WONDERFUL place. Quaint. Warm, lovely pool. Sunset view, terrific walking/running path along oceanfront. We loved the "green" mindset too. Enjoyed the ambience of the lobby: pleasant morning jazz music as they offered free Starbucks. And for the price...can't beat it all. I would have liked a heads up on the $29 a day parking fee. Most other hotels/Inns will give you that up front. The receptionist just asked if we had a car (I should have asked I guess), gave me a parking tag and it seemed easy. But we paid less in San Diego downtown to park at the Bristol where there was no parking to be had elsewhere.
The location was wonderful and they took us in last minute, which saved our trip! We had a nice room that was clean and the beds were comfortable. The hotel was nothing spectacular (no extras), more like an inn than an actual hotel.
Location. . Stuck in one of five rooms that are located on highway. All others look at ocean Gardener starting clipping bushes in front of my room at 7am Room was no better than motel 6.
The staff went above & beyond to make our stay fabulous!!
Friendly staff. Great location for town, beach, and roads. Excellent breakfast en suite. Room was small. Rooms on 100 level kind of loud.
I loved the location. The staff provided chairs, umbrellas, etc. For the beach. Loved the happy hour on the roof overlooking the ocean!
Room was very comfortable. Perfect location and beautiful views
Location Rooms were in the small side
The staff was very friendly. I felt like family! No microwave in the room
Walking distance to beach, shopping, and all of Laguna's great dining. Also right near grocery store.
Beds where nice
The staff was very nice. I missed "check in" by a few hours because I was exploring. But the staff insured me I had no worries and could check in at anytime! Room was clean, beds were so soft! The hotel itself was amazingly beautiful a cottage feel. I have never been to a hotel that had to give you vouchers for the breakfast kinda weird but not a deal breaker.
Close to shopping centers and food joints. Asked for a king and they gave us two queens. Dirty sheets. Not enough towels
Close to where we had a out of town job Friendly staff Clean Only a Continental breakfast Room decor is a buy dated
Location was convenient to attend a wedding surroundings were clean and all stores close to the hotel for last minute shopping The entrance doors need to be updated as critters were able to crawl in which can be scary to some occupants we only noticed it in the morning of our departure but overall it was a reasonable price for our stay.
Good looking place, great location, good food options in the area, super friendly staff Beds could've been more comfortable, especially the pillows. You can tell they cheaped out on a lot of things like breakfast but I would definitely stay there again
Staff is very friendly and helpful. It's not the fanciest place, but it is clean and affordable. In a good area, close to lots of restaurants and shops.
This lodge is like an oasis in a desert. The room was very quiet, the courtyard was lovely, and I slept wonderful. The internet was good, and there was a small fridge, microwave and safe in the room. They also provide a small, simple breakfast. I recommend this lodge.
For one, the hotel looked very nice from the outside. They were currently doing some renovations to accommodate disabled guests, so I can't knock them for that. The actual room itself looked nice. The color scheme, the furniture choices, the vanity sink. The bathroom was kind of a cool open concept. Though the look was cohesive, it did seem pretty outdated. Also, there was still a stain on the sheet on the bed, the toilet still had some dry urine stains under the seat, and the cap that covers the plumbing for the shower head was coming off.
the location and value type of room
the grounds were beautiful and the staff was pleasant. I would stay there again. tried to stay an additional night, unable to keep the same room and would not be able to pay the same orbitz rate, this I understood BUT i was told I had to check out at 11 and could not check into my new room until 3 I HAD JUST STAYED 3 NIGHTS! but couldn't transfer?
Beautifuly kept hotel and grounds. Beautiful room with fireplace. The staff was extremly accomidating and friendly. Could not have asked for a better stay anywhere! There were only a couple of thing with the room that could be better, but they are minute. A second trash can would have been convenient as well as a toilet plunger. The faucet in the sink extended too far out, so washing your face was a bit of a challenge. Small compared to all the amazing things about the room, the hotel and the incredible staff!
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
Location, friendliness, security. Cable box in closet. Wouldn't work with the remote
Clean and modern The TV in the next room was on all night
Excellent in nearly every way, especially if you're looking for nice design and great location just across PCH from the coast. The only negative for us was that my lady works night shift and since these rooms have skylights which illuminate the rooms nicely during daylight hours...Nice touch and wonderful, but in our case it was a challenge to sleep during the day.
Great bed. Room clean and outside sitting area was very lovely and comfortable. The kitchenette area was very helpful. The two little refrigerators were useful. The room was dark. There was minimal overhead lighting and no lamps. The couch was uncomfortable. The cabinets in the kitchen were more like pull out drawers and two were difficult to open due to their weight. Noisy due to chatty people and traffic.
Great location. Room was very comfortable Only complaint is the faucet to the bathroom sink was broken/loose so you had to be careful when using it to not further damage it. Other then that great place to stay and I'll definitely return in the future.
Kitchenette & larger bathroom with roomy tub/shower combo. Comfortable bed (Tempur-pedic). Self-parking. Cable box in closet. Light outside of fogged glass door is on (no switch to turn off) until very late at night & makes room 'light' even though blackout curtain covering window.
It is not a hotel. It is rooms over stores in a shopping area. There is no elevator, no lobby, no valet, with only a floating staircase. Everything. Office which was only a desk in a room was closed when I got there at 10:00. Note said call a number which did not answer the first time I called. No lobby, valet,or elevator, rooms above stores, floating stairs so could not roll luggage up.
location and cleanness. Room was big. I did not like stuff, there was no one and nobody could help us with our luggage, second floor without elevator. Public spaces very poor and ugly.
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
Top notch breakfast and well appointed eating area, especially outside.
Very good value
Clean, nice hotel. Breakfast was unbelievable and free. Beds were comfortable and Tv with all channels was nice. Took a while for front desk to answe the phone.. Had to call a couple times for someone to pick up. Room had musty smell but not terrible...and the key card to run the lights and air was a little weird.
very fancy and indulgent needs a sign in the lobby stating location of elevators
Good breakfast, wifi, free parking, pool is nice, complimentary cookies, happy hour during the work week, surrounding area is nice and convenient. 10 minutes from the beach. Happy hour should be every day. A/C in the hallways and elevators would be nice.
Very nice hotel. Great desk staff smooth check in.
Pool should be open till midnight
Proximity to the beach and comfortable beds Loud air conditioner
No cots available and the air beds had a hole. I paid 75.00$ for a new air bed.
Much better than the Ritz @ Laguna Nigel or Montage. Outstanding service
EVERYTHING was Amazing. The view, service, room service, amenities and the room was perferct We loved everything
The place is awesome and we really enjoyed it The place is 5stars but the service and the employees are 0 stare
the views and the bungalow room was great food service (both in room and at the pool lunch) was slow, inaccurate and not as expected. although the food quality was very good.
Beautiful resort! Loved our room. Food was amazing! Love the boutique on site. Front desk was great. Had an early check in. Staff overall was very slow and not to experienced when it came to bellman and room service. Every time we called for something we sat on hold for a period of time. Then when we left the resort i couldn't see out of my car windows. I had hard water spots all over my beautiful clean mercedes. The sprinklers covered my car and when i asked the valet to help with windex they looked at me like I was crazy.
Location is great! One of the few "private beach" strips in SoCal with bar service on the beach. Great view and beach is swimmer friendly, especially a hundred yards to the north (kelp bed right off the hotel beach...better swimming a hundred yards north). Hotel is historic, and so are the rooms. Bathrooms are still "period" and vintage but functional. NEVER, EVER book a "village view" room. What that means is that your room is on the street side of the hotel, mere feet from a very busy street. We could hear the hoots and hollers from the bar right across the street loud and clear. And, street sweepers and trash trucks do their thing at night. AND, the hotel is NOT air conditioned so the window needs to be open if it's hot. MUCH better to pay the extra cash to be on any side other than the street/east side of the building with an ocean front or garden view.
location, on the beach, great bar, good breakfast the rooms need srucing up.They look tired and worn out.
Location It was horrible it was old and grungy and dirty and there are no locks on the windows there's cracks in the walls carpet was filthy the windows were filthy I have a two-year-old that could open the windows and there is no screen no lock she could've fallen out it was horrible I got food poisoning from the breakfast we had at that restaurant that's attached to the hotel I've been sick for two days it is absolutely horrible and I would never go back
The staff were very helpful; the food was delicious; and the ocean front views and beach access wonderful. Hotel was originally built in 1929 so the rooms are bit small.
Amazing location, our room had a really nice view, the room was clean, small and simply furnished but charming. The hotel is older but I still liked the historical vibe and it felt cozy and quaint. Restaurant had a fantastic view and good food, would happily stay there again. Staff was really nice, price was reasonable, especially for New Years. Could use a fridge in the room.
I left a pair of heels purposely in the trash basket because they were badly marked and 'banged up' after attending an outdoor wedding in a lemon grove in Oxnard. (I figured that by placing them in the trash it would signify that I was tossing them.) I was pleasantly surprise to receive a phone call from the front desk asking me if I had accidently left them and wanted them mailed to me at home in CT. Amazing
The location is directly on the coast and smack dab on Main Beach which is fantastic. The hotel itself and rooms are ancient and have not been updated AT ALL. The hotel was rebuilt in 1930 (originally 1888). There was no air conditioning, the windows still looked original (single pane) and blocked minimal sound. We heard car alarms incessantly and the people below. The room and bathroom were tiny and old and didn't look clean...mold throughout the bathroom tile grout. The window treatment looked like something out of a horror flick...the rod was completely askew with dirty 70's style curtains. We left the hotel without staying a single night.
the location is top - very central, next to the Laguna beach and the strip a not-so friendly receptionist put me up in a room facing the street, despite I asked for a quiet room. She cited that there aren't any rooms available, however, I headed out to explore the town and upon my return and later inquiry with reception (much nicer personnel now), there was a room available but at an extra charge which wasn't worthwhile.
Location was everything, literally right on the sand. Best part about the hotel was the restaurant. Man, where to start! First I must say, me and my girlfriend are not picky travelers. We are completely fine staying in a motel 6 if it is clean and up to par. Hotel Laguna is far from par. Every time we'd go take a shower, the faucet would randomly shoot out scalding hot water and burned my girlfriend twice. Our window was broken, so I had to hang out the window to tighten a loose screw so it would work. We had a garden/ocean view when we booked our hotel, but we looked at nothing but the parking lot all weekend. The staff member that checked us in looked completely disinterested, and couldn't even give us proper change for our receipt. Overall, don't waste your money here, like I said the best part is the restaurant, GO SOMEWHERE ELSE!!
Close to Newport restaurants Found used silverware outside door at 4pm checkin. At 11:30pm silverware still there. Found used eyelashes on sink at checkin. No bathtub. Disappointed stay for the $220 nite rate
The room was very nice and modern. Valet parking efficient. The resort fee was an unnecessary and unreasonable charge. The Friday night brunch is $50 apiece and worth under $20. They served dried our turkey breast at the carving station that had to be covered in gravey. The beef chunks were very tough. Don't eat there. Bring snacks and drinks. A bottle of beer is $4.50 the resort store. Poolside service is only during summer. This is Southern California. Summer is year around.
Very quiet and relaxing. The grounds are well kept, the room was very spacious. There are a lot of activities and the location of the hotel is great, you can drive to the beach in 5 minutes, fashion island is next door and Sherman's gardens are just down the road. Parking is expensive ($25/day) and the lot is a bit of a hike from the hotel depending on which room you have.
Gorgeous landscape and places to relax. Kids at adult only pool!
Not much See above
Great gym and pools. Very nice outdoor setting. Parking costs additional $35/ day. Rooms are clean but feel old and cheap. They add 20% tip to the bill for any service provided...food.
The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The grounds were very nice with lots of places to sit and enjoy them. They have concerts on Friday night and they are quite loud, we were not notified they would be going on. I think that guest should be advised when they make their resevations.
Pool area not cleaned up well....needs facelift badly! Bar Mitzvah at hotel was noisy at night. Expensive self-parking ($27 per day) and "resort fee" ($25 per day) adds significant cost to room.
The staff are very helpful and cheerful. Bar area is limited and subject to a lot of noise from families passing through or as part of a large concert crowd that can dominate the whole area at weekends. The resort is more than walking distance to most other shopping or restaurant areas or the beach. No quiet area for a drink and conversation.
Maybe decor needs updating
The water slide for kids was pretty cool and the food was good, although pricy. Self parking is really far from the rooms. Plus you have to walk up a steep hill to get from the parking to your room. They don't have ramps to some of the areas. Had to carry out stroller down to the pool with the slide. The walls in rooms are really thin. Our room was next to the maid service room so pretty much the whole nights we would hear door slamming, people talking and carts being moved around. On our last night we could hear a couple arguing in the next room for like an hour. We could literally hear every word. We had two small children with us so all the noise would wake them up. Pictures on the web look nice but in real life the hotel is not even close to it. The lobby is the only nice area in the hotel.
Nothing The towels were cheap, resort and valet fees were excessive. I felt like I was staying in the holiday inn. Will never go back.
Fantastic location.Great value for money.Very clean.Great pool and jacuzzis.Will definitely be back!Even a Starbucks!And a great bar.Fire pits at night.Sunset was incredible to top off a great getaway.10/10.
It was close to malls and movies. Not the best views in Newport
The friendliness of the staff
Marriott hotels have always been an enjoyable experience. The room, location and overall stay was very nice. The in room dining as well as pool service staff was beyond slow. The drinks by the pool had a 30 minute ticket time and I had to call in room dining 6 times before my what was supposed to be surprise order of champagne arrived. I'm in the industry as well and understand things get busy. The in room dining gave us some strawberries as an apology for the delay which was nice but th pool staff did nothing to appease everyone's clear annoyance with the slowness of service. It wouldn't deter me from returning necessarily but it does make me question the hiring process at this location. Not only was the pool staff slow, the gentleman had the personality of a shoe.
Spa was amazing! Pay for parking and taking extra money for deposit
The staff is VERY sweet and helpful. Great location. Valets were SO SWEET! Extremely clean. My ONLY problem was I reserved TWO DOUBLE BEDS. I brought my 15 year old daughter and her best friend For a one night getaway. I received an am txt that our room would be ready at 4pm.. So we went to fashion island for fun lunch at Lemonade And some shopping. When we went to check in.. At 4pm.. I was told That they had over sold and our room had one king bed. In my reservation I specified THREE PEOPLE! I feel like I got bumped cuz I reserved thru kayak... Paid less. They brought up a HUGE rollaway That took up half the room. We couldn't even make room for it.. So we all 3 slept in one bed. Not the end of the world.. But I would have appreciated better communication. Beautiful hotel and we had a lot of fun.
