Horrible experience. I had to go to the main office over 6 times because my room key did not work. The front seat kept on activating my key and 20min late it would drop working. I didn’t want to spend my vacation going back and forth to fix room key.

Mediocre hotel

Pros: Can't thing of anything. Better to stay at the Las Brisas further south with it's own parking structure and some room to breathe.
Cons: Room was very small for a king bed room. The refrigerator could not open but 1/4 the way because it hit the foot of the bed.
Location: Good location but most of the hotels have access to the Coast highway free festival shuttle.
Greeted by a desk person or manager that talked a a 4G cell phone rate; polite but he made us feel like we were the first in line with 40 people behind us and he needed to get us moving along as quickly as possible. Did not expect much and got it. Nice bathroom shower, but door would not close in bathroom. Put us in a basement room and it felt that way. Felt very cramped. Families seemed to enjoy the nice pool right outside the rooms.

This hotel was hospitable

Cons: Poor breakfast
Very Pleasant stay. The parking in the rear however needs to have a turn around for easier access, exit, and driving safety. They may have to take out a couple of parking spaces to do it, but it would be very worth it.

A Great Find

My previous experience with Holiday Inns in the past was never all that great. Never anything terrible but just not that great of an experience. This hotel was an exception. Very attractive decor throughout. Had a unique French Quarter feel throughout it. Beautiful plants and flowers. Very pleasant and helpful staff. We had 2 full sized beds in the room. The room was smaller then we would have preferred but very clean and nicely designed. Shower was great and it had a nice pool.

very enjoyable!

our stay at this hotel was wonderful! laguna beach is, in itself, a fabulous place to visit, with it's beauty and dining and shops, and , it's convenience to southern californias "fun" places-disneyland, sea world, knott's, etc. every one staffed at the hotel were very accomodating, and... the beds! the MOST comfortable bed i have EVER slept on! i was traveling with my daughter for mother's day, she agrees! very comfortable! i was, however, surprised that there was not a dvd player, that would have been nice. will i stay, again? yes! thank you for such a pleasant stay!

Be cautious as room is small and no elevator

Requested a room for 5 and was told it was not a problem. The room had 2 double beds and a roll away. The room was so small that the only place the roll away would fit was in front of the sink...which blocked anyone from using the toilet or shower. There is a daily charge for parking. We were told the pool is guess is it's heated only by the sun. The restaurant leaves a lot to be desired. They were out of many things on the menu, ice cream, crab cakes, etc., and the menu is small to begin with. The child's hamburger is only about 2 inches across. Stairs to the restaurant, lobby, and half of the elevator. The rooms are quiet and black out drapes are nice.

Great Experience and Value

The hotel is in a great location of Laguna Beach, the beach is across the street, grocery store next door, food/clubs downstairs and others within walking distance. Great heated pool with a mediteranian setting; (just look at th photos). The staff was very pleasant and helped me with directions and places to go. The rooms are good size with flat panel TV's and a very comfortable setting. The price for the area and location is unbeatable. I loved the stay and would come back here again!

Holiday Inn Laguna Beach

After having read the previous reviews about the Holiday Inn, I was a little concerned. Once there, however, I was very happy with the accommodations. My room had been remodeled and had every amenity I needed. It overlooked the inviting swimming pool (wish I had brought my suit!). They have complimentary beverages in the lobby. It was within 1/2 mile of Laguna Beach proper so it enabled me to walk to everything. The only negative, which had not been disclosed, was that they do charge for parking. Other than that, I had a great stay and would stay there again.
