Got a 'good' deal for $100 for a Thursday night. Was hoping for a beach front room, but did not get one as shown in the pictures. Also was not aware of the required $24 valet parking fee. However beach was 50 yrds away. Lots of art galleries around and restaurants within walking distance.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel on the beach"
Stayed at this hotel for a wedding that we attended at a nearby hotel. Pleased with the experience. It was walking distance to the wedding we were attending. We even walked back from the wedding on the beach.Genuine Expedia guest review
The deck restaurant next to room is nice, I didn't have a lighter or anymore wine and the hotel security gave me a bottle brought a wine opener and matches. It was very nice of him! I would def recommend this place to anyone..very nice and decently priced!Genuine Expedia guest review

"Experience @ Laguna Beach"
Very nice and warm staff ,Clean and pleasant Hotel.... it was just right for a Queen size room for 2 people....,But parking situation It was a little disappointment for me you have to pay $24 dollars was kind a expensive for people just staying for one night, considering paying already that much for the hotel room, I think the least you can get is a […] free parking to attract more Guest Which is some of the hotels does in the area,Good thing that we went on a weekdays other wise I'm pretty sure weekends is terribly hard to get a spot on the street, we need to walk a mile to get back to the hotel, Good thing that were from New York and we don't mine walking.

We feel that the Valet provides a great service and makes it worth the price. Come see us again! Brian Sullivan Front Office Manager
We had originally booked a different hotel for our first stay in Laguna Beach, but upon arrival, didn't care for it. So I got on hotels.com on my phone and found a great deal on this hotel. The location is great. On the beach side with own beach access and a beach valet with free lounge chairs, umbrellas, towels and even sand toys for our kids. Close […] to town where we could walk to many restaurants and the playground at Main Beach. The staff at the front desk were friendly and helpful. When we checked in, they gave our kids a huge goodie bag with toys and snacks, made sure a crib was brought to the room and set up, and upon checkout, they even kept some perishables we had purchased in their refrigerator. Our room was a decent size for the price and, while there was no view, we were in a beach side building so we could listen to the waves at night. I enjoyed our stay and would definitely come here again. Be aware that the hotel has mandatory valet parking like most places in Laguna Beach. It was no problem for us, the valets were very fast and we never waited more than a few minutes. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"On the beach in the heart of Laguna Beach."
The hotel beach boys that set up our lounge chairs, umbrellas and towels were outstanding and very attentive, no charge but generous tips were appreciated.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Pacific Edge Hotel on Laguna Beach, a Joie de Vivre Hotel The beach staff is fantastic! I'm glad you were able to experience it. Thanks for the comment! Brian Sullivan Front Office Manager
Having stayed at this location for years when it was Vacation Village I was extrmely disappointed. The room was small and faced the main street, although it wasn't as noisy as I would have expected. The staff was great and did their best to make up for that. They are currently in the process of renovating the hotel, but it needs more attention to detail.

Response by Pacific Edge Hotel on Laguna Beach, a Joie de Vivre Hotel I'm glad that we had an upgrade available for you, nothing beats a room with an Ocean View. I'm happy to hear that the staff was helpful to make this happen for you. Thanks for your comments! Brian Sullivan Front Office Manager
My friend and I needed a break from life, so we decided to go away to the beach for a couple of days. We were looking for a luxurious room close to the beach where we could relax. We opted to only stay for one night, and get the nicest room possible. Pacific Edge Hotel was reasonably priced, the rooms looked spacious and beautiful, and it was just a […] few steps from the beach. However, what the pictures portrayed was definitely not what we got. The building itself looked like a cheap 1920's motel with a fresh paint job. The room was tiny, a college dorm room is bigger than the room we were given, and the bathroom was about the size of a hallway. The website said the room included a refrigerator and flat screen, but they couldn't even deliver on that. We definitely didn't get a flat screen, and the fridge was old and dirty. Lastly, I'm convinced that the valet guys took it upon themselves to take my car for a joy ride. Kudos to your marketing team Pacific Edge Hotel they do an excellent job in hyping up your property!

"location is great"
this is an old hotel ,very well situated on the beach ,and as close as possible to the village. The ocean FRONT rooms are very nice, however the bargain buildings behind the ocean front ones are awful.. no way to open a window . loud old fashioned ac unit .. clean , yes great coffee maker, so only a very bargain price is deserved. parking at $24.00 […] A DAY IS RIDICULOUS. some rooms actually dark dingy and smelly.. if you are looking for luxury.. this is not the place..

They have valet parking only for $ 25.00 a day otherwise you have to park on the street where are vehicle's side mirror was broken then while we were loading our car to leave before the check out time house keeping was already in our room and threw out some food we were taking with us..I would never stay here againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Very pleasant. We were a little disappointed that the rate was not for a room facing the ocean but the parking lot, however for a small fee we were upgraded to a great room facing the ocean.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Our room was old and smelly"
The front desk staff were helpful and service-oriented. Our accommodations must have been from the original hotel, it was very old, dark and musty smelling and badly furnished with what appears to be garage sale items since nothing matched. Will never stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The room was recently renovated, by who? A college freshmen? They missed the opportunity to refresh with soothing, classy, beach tone colors. It was bright, garish and tacky. I was looking forward to sleeping with the sound of ocean waves. Instead it was a hot muggy night and we had to use the window air conditioner, which was loud and inefficient. […] We called down to the front desk to see if we could get a fan but they did not have one. The bed was comfortable though! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel was a good location, beqch access, etc. only thing was the maid left our sliding door open and we weren't home for hours with it open. The manager was amazing! But.....Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Worst Room Ever"
A great Disappointment. Over $200 for the room that was no bigger than a closet with a toilet stool. Web site gave impression that all rooms faced the water. FALSE. When we found out not all rooms faced the water the clerk said that our room would overlook the pools. FALSE. Our view was a brick wall. The ocean frontage was the only redeeming part of […] this disaster. To make it worse, it was our 47th wedding anniversary, Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Kim, at the desk was very nice & tried her best to meet our needs.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Room was very dated. Need to request a room in the remolded wing. Very nice restaurant.Genuine Expedia guest review
The rooms in the back are of a different level and do not represent the Joie de Vivre Hotel brand at all. I'm even surprised they have these old buildings still standing. Personally I feel renovations couldn't improve the state the building is in but only a complete tear down and rebuild from what I saw is their only answer. The customer service at […] the hotel is great and everyone's friendly and helpful but the quality of the building is the problem and that is not an easy or quick fix.

We booked this hotel same day and were very pleased with the price being the most reasonable in town. The room we stayed in was modest and functional and the bed was comfy.

My daughter and I came to Laguna Beach for a family member's wedding. We loved the location in spite of being disappointed with the room. It met our basic needs but pricey for the condition of the hotel and room.Genuine Expedia guest review
"prime location but needs updating"
All in all not worth the money. They also charge extra 20 something dolars for parking and pre approve your card for 50 dolar deposit on top of the roo charges. Poor service.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good location, Great service, just okay room"
We loved the location and the service was excellent. The room was old with concrete block walls, but very clean. Our room had a huge kitchen (the same size as my kitchen at home!) with tons of cabinets, but not a single dish or glass, no pots or pans, no silverware - so we really couldn't use the kitchen at all. AND - the bed was not particularly comfortable. […] BUT - we did have a lovely view of the ocean, and we were just steps away from the beach, so that was a BIG plus!

"Staff on the Beach"
They were terrific, they set up the chairs ,umbrellas & towels. The rest of the staff were excellent any questions you asked were answered right away, Will stay at this hotel the next timeGenuine Expedia guest review
Staff was excellent ..... But price 300 $ , absolutely unreasonable ...99 $ it could be the right price. Our room and most of the rooms are very dated and "Valet car parking view".....NOT OCEAN FRONT VIEW !!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Ideal location, friendly staff, but lots of stairs"
Excellent location, walking distance to whatever you need. Nice beach with chairs and towels provided, good service but it takes lots of stairs to reach the beach. One unpleasant aspect was the "valet parking only" that we didn't know about, cost of $24 per day. Otherwise, thoroughly enjoyed it.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Paying for the view only"
This hotel is a 4 star DUMP. We had an “Ocean View Suite” ($400/night) – with a balcony that had the adjoining room’s window unit blasting hot air at us. Window units barely keep the room cool. The water to the room was shut off for repair during our stay – no running water. Carpet had wet areas that never really dried out. Valet parking is expensi […] ve.

"Best Location if you want to be ON the beach!"
I love this hotel. I spent a week here and left my balcony door open every night. The sounds of the ocean made a beautiful lullaby! We stayed in the Reef, which is old, but the rooms have been redone. The Reef Tower may be newer. I am usually one for elegance, but the location made up for any elegance that may be lacking, and the staff was very accommodating. […] Each morning we could go down to the beach where a staff member would set up complimentary beach chairs, towels and umbrellas. They'd even put a reserve sign on them if we wondered away for a while. My next visit to Laguna Beach will include a stay at Pacific Edge. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great time in Laguna Beach"
Beach front rooms were nice with a great view. Hotel location is awesome and within walking distance of attractions and restaurants. City has a free shuttle around town during summer to catch things not within walking distance. Hotel service was great. Rooms have refrigerators.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

The staff was great from the front dest to the Valets. The location is perfect, on the beach with plenty of other dining and things to do within walking distance.Genuine Expedia guest review
They stuck us in a small room away from all our friends and family. As if that wasn't bad enough, we had to endure a bathroom that smelled like an outhouse. Next time I would book directly with the hotel since we didn't get what we paid for with hotels.comGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Close to beach but very dated."
Our room was very small. Standing shower only, which with a toddler who only takes a bath- this was a challenge. The room walls are thin- could hear the guests behind us and next to us. The room was very small. Hotel is overpriced for what you are paying for. The beach is nice, the pools sit down low by parking garages.

"Bar is excellent"
The room was OK. We were there in the summer, and the wall mounted AC with no temp control, so the room was never comfortable. Shower was small and cheap.

"Easy Family Vaca"
We had a really nice time utilizing the morning yoga class and the access to the beach. The supplied all the beach towels and chairs and it was very easy to walk to downtown and grab a quick icecream or find a fancy spot for dinner.

"Close to the beach."
Hotel isn't fancy but it's close to the beach and the staff is friendly and helpful.Genuine Expedia guest review
It was an older room, which wasn't too bad except when two blow dryers were going we would trip the fuse. The kitchen had nothing stocked, for example, no dish detergent, no utensils, only two glasses, two coffee cups, a few bowls, no dish towels. The WiFi never worked, the flat screen t.v. didn't work until we got an engineer to come in and look at […] it. We called the second night we were there and the engineer never showed up. So we had to call again on the third night, then he showed. Our balcony over looked the valet parking which wasn't horrible but it was extremely noisy. Maid service didn't show up until 4p daily, that was sort of an inconvenience. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
