Pacific Edge is the perfect spot! Always stay here everytime we visit Laguna. Been twice this month already! Definitely stay in the renovated wing and beach front for the most beautiful view. Friendly staff, clean rooms, and pet friendly! Who could ask for more!?Genuine Hotels.com guest review

We had a great time at the Pacific Edge. It's right on the ocean and listening to the waves at night was fantastic. The restaurant, The Deck, is a hidden gem in Laguna Beach. The staff was excellent. Especially, Bryan and Akiko that made sure that we were happy there. We will definitely be going back there soon.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Pacific Edge Hotel on Laguna Beach, a Joie de Vivre Hotel Fantastic! This is exactly the kind of vacation experience we strive to provide for our guests at Pacific Edge.

"Good location but noisey."
Decent hotel, but a bit difficult to get to rooms and walls are very thin.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Relaxed beach hotel"
Loved it. Will definitely go back for a fourth time. The entire staff is extremely friendly.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Pacific Edge Hotel on Laguna Beach, a Joie de Vivre Hotel So great to hear you enjoyed our service. We look forward to seeing you again very soon! All the Best, Brian Sullivan, Front Office Manager
Advertised like its on the Beach, not really. More like being on pacific coast hwy.... The pools are just off the parking lot, and the rooms have TVs from the 1990s I think... Place is in a great location in bad need of an updateGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"If you like your hotel room sticky"
This hotel is a fun beach front, but my room was in the basement and apparently right by the hang out area for smokers and the valet service. There was no soundproofing, so they woke me up every morning. The end table was not cleaned when I came in, had a sticky substance on it, and it stayed that way the whole stay. Also, there was gross stuff on […] the wall in the bathroom - gross. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Bech Hotel"
This is our second stay at the Pacific Edge and we look forward to the next. The entire staff goes out of their way to make sure guests are comfortable - the front desk, housekeepers, maintenance and beach attendant. The location is excellent, right on the beach and blocks from numerous bars and restaurants. We could see dolphins swimming in the waves […] from our bed! The rooms are kitschy but that only adds to the low key beach vibe. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Pacific Edge Hotel on Laguna Beach, a Joie de Vivre Hotel Thanks for such a flattering review! While we pride ourselves on our excellent location, our staff and service is what we feel makes the difference. We are glad to hear you enjoyed our Boutique Vintage rooms as well! All the Best, Brian Sullivan, Front Office Manager
I live in LA and just needed a weekend get away. My boyfriend and I stayed in the newly renovated building. It was gorgeous! The room was decorated beautifully. The bed was so comfy and the completely tiled double sized shower luxurious. The private balcony was lovely and falling to sleep to the sounds of the ocean was delicious. Before I left I booked […] 4 nights over Spring break for my daughters and me. I can't wait to get back! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Pacific Edge Hotel on Laguna Beach, a Joie de Vivre Hotel Excellent! We are so pleased to hear guests are really enjoying our newly renovated rooms. We look forward to seeing you and your family again soon! All the Best, Brian Sullivan, Front Office Manager
The pictures all make it look like you will have an ocean view. Checked in and our view was of the parking lot. Super disappointing! When I mentioned we were under the impression we would have an ocean view to the person at the front desk he said it would be $75 more a night. No thanks! The room was not as nice as the photos and pretty small. Nice big […] hot tub and pool. Great location close to everything but won't stay here again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"it was nit a good vibe and good energy and room"
the room was too small with no view. plus it was not comfy at all.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to beach, but The Deck restaurant too loud!!"
Mandatory valet parking with nightly fee of 24 dollars. Walls paper thin. Window opened to The Deck restaurant which was loud with music and moving furniture all day and night, so unable to hear ocean waves.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Pacific Edge Hotel on Laguna Beach, a Joie de Vivre Hotel We are sorry to hear that the Deck restaurant was loud and that the walls were too thin. However, we want to let you know that we are currently rennovating a number of our rooms, which will give our guests a fresh experience at our oceanfront resort.
I liked the room 16, and I like to stay there again, nice balcony, and view to the ocean, but sheets were not clean. I liked that room because it was really quiet.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Pacific Edge Hotel on Laguna Beach, a Joie de Vivre Hotel Glad to hear you enjoyed the ocean view and the balcony--terribly sorry about the sheets! We assure you that in any future stays you will not encounter this issue again. All the Best, Brian Sullivan, Front Office Manager
"Amazing oceanfront hotel"
As soon as we checked in, the staff was so courteous and helpful. The room was beachfront with the most amazing views from the balcony. The room was small but that is to be expected in Laguna Beach. The only thing I didn't like about the hotel was that the room was a bit rundown. The sliding glass door to the balcony was old and didn't slide or lock […] easily. And because it was old it didn't keep the cold out very well so it got cold in the room since we were there in the winter. However there was a heater in the room that worked well. The bathroom was tiny with not much room to put your things. The shower faucets were also old. However, It was very clean and the bed was super comfortable. I do think the price was a little high just because of the condition of the rooms. The hotel is in a fantastic location, walking distance to restaurants and nifhtlife. All in all, we had a fantastic time in this wonderful hotel on the beach. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Response by Pacific Edge Hotel on Laguna Beach, a Joie de Vivre Hotel We're so glad you decided to spend your vacation with us here at Pacific Edge Hotel! We agree, we think our staff is great, and we do have a fantastic location. I'm sorry to hear that there could have been improvements to your room.

"Right on beach & close to shopping & nightlife"
Hotel needs total remodel, and is very noisy. But if you get up and out to enjoy the beach or shopping, its well worth it!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Pacific Edge Hotel on Laguna Beach, a Joie de Vivre Hotel We thank you for your repsonse are happy to hear you enjoyed our location. Our property will be going through a considerable remodel in March, and we hope you will come join us for another stay in one of our freshly renovated rooms this spring!
"2 bdrm suite perfect for family"
We love Laguna Beach. We did however think when it said kitchenette included there would at least be some kitchen items for our use. There was NOTHING except a toaster. I have never stayed in a room with a kitchenette where it was completely empty. Thankfully, we have family that live in Laguna Beach that we could borrow from and not have to buy everything […] and waste our vacation funds on things we didn't need.

Response by Pacific Edge Hotel on Laguna Beach, a Joie de Vivre Hotel We appreciate that you enjoyed Laguna Beach. All of our rooms that include kitchenettes should be well stocked with an array of standard kitchenware. We apologize that your room was not properly stocked and would have been more than happy to bring you anything we could to accomodate your stay with us. Housekeeping will be made aware of this and you will not encounter this issue again on any future stays.
I would absolutely stay here again... Smalltown feel... But perfect location. Loved my stay here. Room was small but I only used it to sleep in... Time on the beach and service is great!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Dirty Hotel by the Beach"
Terrible I should have checked out the reviews better They give you examples of the new remodeled rooms and the room you receive is the dirty ones. I had to pay $300 more for he remodeled room. It says that Valet Parking is $24 a day but they don't give you in the description that you don't have a choice for parking unless you want to park a mile down […] the street. They show you pictures of the back of hotel by the Beach but not in front because the front of Hotel does not look nice at all. This is false advertising, of there Hotel. I would never stay here again, and I do not recommend it. Please read your reviews and trust what people say on them Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Steps to the beach"
Loved our room with a beautiful view of the ocean and just a staircase walk to the beach. Loved the proximity to town. We walked everywhere. Thought it was ridiculous to pay $24.00 a day for my car to sit in the lot outside our room and never even use the valet.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Had two rooms. Ocean front room was delightful. Street front room was small, dark and less than wonderfulGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful affordable gettaway"
This was a last minute trip that we planned for a much needed getaway! The hotel was running a special on a room with a view of the ocean! We had the best experience for such a reasonable price. With a family of 6 we couldn't afford to spend too much on a nice little mom and dad getaway! This was ideal! Thank you for running this special so an average […] middle class couple could afford to get some much needed beach time! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Response by Pacific Edge Hotel on Laguna Beach, a Joie de Vivre Hotel Thank you Laurie! One of my favorite things about our property is that we are one of the more affordable properties beachfront hotels around. We hope to see you again soon with the whole family!

"nice location, hotel run down"
I stayed in room # 702 you could hear everything in the other room next door. They need to get that under control. I felt like I was staying with another family.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Needs an update"
We came for a wedding, stayed at this hotel as it was close to wedding site at more reasonable cost. The room needed an update. Old, although clean carpet, sinks, lighting. The bed was clean, as was everything else in the room. There was a small table with two side wooden side chairs. Unfortunately, there was nowhere else to sit. We enjoyed using the […] hot tub. The affiliated restaurant on the beach was very comfortable with good food. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Pacific Edge Hotel on Laguna Beach, a Joie de Vivre Hotel We are happy to hear that you had a good experience at our hotel and appreciate your remarks about our cleanliness. While some of our guests enjoy our Vintage Boutique rooms, we know that some guests prefer a more contemporary experience. This is why our property is only days away from beginning a significant rennovation to a number of our rooms. We hope you will stay with us again in the future for a great new experience! All the Best, Brian Sullivan, Front Office Manager
"Pretty good for what we paid"
We got a pretty good rate on our room. Towel bar fell of if you looked at it wrong. The big pool was freezing and the hot tub was dangerously lacking chlorine (brought tester strips). Room was a bit noisy. Thin doors between the adjoining room. The front door and windows weren't sealed very good, so you could hear the cars pretty good going by on PCH. […] Very good location in downtown Laguna. Steps away from the beach. Wifi worked. Front desk was helpful, but not overly friendly. Kind of like "we're annoyed, but we're going to smile and act appropriately". Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Place, Excellent Service, Unbelievable View"
My boyfriend and I stayed there for three nights. When we arrived the asked if we wanted to upgrade to an ocean view room from a village view room for the last two nights of our stay. I'm so glad we upgraded! The village view room was okay, but the ocean view can't be beat. We watched the sunset from the deck both nights. I was worried that room might […] be loud when I noticed it was right above the patio bar. That wasn't a problem as the bar closed earlier than we were going to bed for the evening. The staff was amazing, too. They made sure we were informed about the new room being ready and they transferred our bags from one room to the other. The hotel requires the use of valet parking. They valets were very nice, prompt and helpful, too. We'll definitely go back again and our friends who live in the area are talking about staying there in the future, too.

"A bit shabby, but overall a decent place to stay"
We stayed 5 nights in a 2-bedroom suite with a kitchen. It was very spacious, but everything was just a bit shabby and tired. The kitchen was completely empty (no pots, pans, plates, cups, flatware, etc.), but a "kitchen box" can be brought to your room if you request it. Housekeeping came very late and twice we had to request fresh towels and trash […] removal when we arrived back at our room in the afternoon since housekeeping had not yet been in to make up the room. The day before checking out, the front desk attendant told us that we could request earlier housekeeping - wish we'd found that out earlier. Great location and very friendly and helpful front desk staff. Overall, it was a nice stay and well worth the price we paid. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Warm & Sunny Laguna Beach Welcome!"
Upon arrival, we were warmly greeted by a truly outstanding staff. Stacie, Akiko and Bryan D welcomed us with warm smiles and the most hospitable arrival to a hotel. I travel very frequently and by far, this staff is thee best I've encountered. They instantly made us feel at home and went above and beyond to ensure our time at their hotel would be relaxing […] and enjoyable. I would highly recommend this lovely hotel...as not only is the staff fantastic, but the location is perfect- right in the heart of main beach Laguna! I look forward to my next stay at the Pacific Edge Hotel soon. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Location, location, location... price."
The hotel staff were all helpful and friendly. Our room was in the reef building and was definitely showing it's age. There were stains on the carpet and there was rust taking over most metal objects. After seeing our neighbors AC unit from our patio, I would not turn on the AC. With that said, the location of this hotel cannot be beat. My girlfriend […] and I loved our stay here. The view from the ocean patio is breath taking. There is a modern flat screen TV in the room and Keurig coffee maker. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

I booked an oceanfront room for my husbands birthday and we only stayed one night but we were extremely satisfied with our view and the condition of the room. It looked remodeled or newly decorated and matched the photos I saw online. We found street parking right in front of the hotel which is free after 7pm-8am. We also ordered room service from the […] local Mare restaurant which was lovely because we enjoyed brunch on our balcony with an unobstructed oceanview. The only bad thing initially was that when we first checked in, we were assigned to room 504 or something along that floor which is right above the rental bungalows. There were tons of FSU parties there and it was loud so we asked to switch rooms which they did speedily for us. We moved up to 703 and we enjoyed ourselves so much more. I would definitely stay again and recommend! Negative reviewers probably didn't pay for oceanfront... From the outside, those rooms didn't look great at all so I can understand. But, pay the $$ and get oceanfront if you can. It is definitely worth it! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Pacific Edge Hotel on Laguna Beach, a Joie de Vivre Hotel Thank you so much for your feedback. We pride ourselves at Pacific Edge on our variety of room types we have to offer, giving guests the chance to find the price and experience thats right for their Laguna Beach Vacation. We're sorry our Bungalows were quite noisy, but happy to hear that our staff were accommodating of your request for a quieter location. We hope you will remember us in your future getaways.
We stayed for a quick overnight before flying home out of San Diego. The price was great on hotels.com but by the time we added valet parking (required) and extra for ocean view, our total was a lot more. Room was okay but kind of worn and outdated.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a ocean front room, couldnt ask for a better location. You can watch the sunset from your balcony. Its a couple steps down and your on the beach.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location but rooms are mediocre rooms"
Booked this hotel looking for a getaway and to catch up on some R & R away from the babies. Front desk clerk Bryan was super nice and upgraded our room to a partial ocean view which was amazing! If you plan on spending a lot of time in the rooms (the beachfront rooms I'm sure were a lot nicer) they aren't that great. Looks like an older studio apartment […] with some colorful paint and pictures put up. Although having a full kitchen (small fridge though) was nice. Great location to everything and the deck had goods drinks and friendly service, the food was a little bland though (had brunch there). Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent customer service"
The hotel was perfect. We were celebrating my husbands birthday. Madison, who checked us in was FANTASTIC!! She was so friendly and helpful. She told us about things to do and places to visit. We went to the hotel restaurant and our server Jake was WONDERFUL,... The hotel room was clean and loved the decor. It was a perfect experience.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Walking distance to town center"
Liked the lobby decoration and staff. Had to pay an expensive upgrade to have a view, without the benefit of the Hotels.com sale I originally purchased the night with. (On-line it is not clear that only some rooms have a view) also, the only available parking was valet for an extra 24 dlls a night!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We didn't expect fancy when we got an on-line special to stay in Laguna Beach. We knew it was all about location, and that's the only strength of this hotel. No elevators or assistance getting bags to rooms was offered, tho we were charged $24 per night to park (without advance notice). Rooms are like very tight sterile 1950-60s highway motel rooms. […] People were friendly, but not a lot of services provided. Had older TV which was clearly on its way out, and the bathroom had a stand-up shower without a tub, as well as single sink with no counter space and virtually no in-room storage.

I'm not really sure where to begin! Our stay was absolutely amazing! The Pacific Edge and all surrounding properties are stunning! The added discounts at nearby eateries was nice! The staff I dealt with was beyond friendly and made absolute sure that there were no other needs. The valet men were great and super friendly and willing to help with recommendations […] (as you will walk past the valet station most every walking trip down the Pacific Coast Highway)! The room was very clean however in need of some updating. In short, yes, we will absolutely be staying here again! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This was the most expensive hotel on the strip but very worn down with a cheesy stuff motif. There was dust and hair in our room. Uncomfortable pillows. Staff however was excellent. I would recommend staying at a cheaper boutique hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Never told about $24 a day parking. Wifi never worked. Rooms are basically lipstick on a pig.Genuine Expedia guest review
I have never stayed in a hotel room that literally when the tide was in, it was under our veranda! The kids had a blast taking just one flight of stairs down to the beach from our room. The room was big, a little dated but did not care because we were either down at beach or sitting on the veranda to watch the sunset and to look and listen to the soothing […] sounds of the ocean. I would absolutely stay at this hotel again and hopefully the same room (rm#125)! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Old room, noisy"
The service was good but our room was not., It was very old and noisy. We could hear the people in the room by us easily. It also had a bad, musty smell probably from wet suits etc. from beach. It was so noisy from road was hard to sleep. I don't know what the other side of hotel was like but it looked better. Make sure you do not stay in the old p […] art.

"Cute Chic Motel"
Loved it there! Short stay wished we had stayed longer. They offered movie night outside in their pool area one a huge screen. 5 Star restaurant right in the premises and my favorite part of all was our room pet Moby the fish.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Take the Room Closer to the Pool"
I could not sleep all night because of the traffic. The walls are too thin and you can hear the street traffic whole night long. The receptionist gave us a choice, drag your bags to the room closer to the pool or conveniently go up to rooms closer to the Lobby. She failed to tell us that we will not be sleeping whole night due to the main street traffic. […] The room is not that big, there is no Flat screen TV like they advertise anyway.
