We stayed 3 nights at this hotel. It was valet parking which cost $24 per night. You don't have much choice as it is metered parking on the street. The room we stayed in was basic, very clean, but when you step out onto the balcony the view was AMAZING. The balcony actually overhung into the Pacific hence the name....

Stayed in room 136 right on the water. This property is literally on the main beach within walking distance of all Laguna has to offer. The room was beautifully decorated, cozy, clean and the property is very welcoming. You will not be disappointed with your decision to stay here.

Pleasantly surprised. I thought that the rooms would be hit or miss, but our two rooms were great. The oceanfront room was recently redone: good size, nice decor. Bathroom is tiny but functional. Village view room, also recently updated: good size, nice decor, small (not updated) kitchenette. Tiny, functional bathroom. Staff: extremely friendly and helpful. Dog friendly! No hassles, no...

Three of my bridge ladies and myself have been going to this hotel yearly since the early 1990's. The location is great for walking and leaving the car behind for restaurants and shopping. We enjoy the beach amenities: lounge chairs, and/or short chairs, towels and umbrellas plus a thundering surf which encourages some surfers to provide beach entertainment for all...

We stayed at Pacific Edge hotel in late July 2014. We knew we'd be paying a premium for oceanfront accommodations but at $600+ a night, we would have expected a bit of luxury. Reading reviews and doing research, the Reef building is the best option. We found the rooms there, although certainly on the beach, to be rather motel-like. We...

While we do have a more relaxed ambiance than some of our sister properties, we take pride in offering all of our guests a welcoming beach-side environment. I'm sorry you were disappointed with your room, and especially the exterior. It requires constant attention as the salt water is quite harsh on our buildings, but we've always felt that the view...

The first thing we saw on opening our room door was the ocean through the balcony window. The room was literally over hanging the ocean, it was incredible, and everything we'd hoped for. Balcony was perfect for sitting with a cold beer watching the sunset, the surfers and waves. For that this hotel is worth ten out of ten. Our...

You're right, Tina -- we should have been more forthcoming about the leak. One of our engineers did get a chance to check it out, but since there was no glaring issue, we concluded that the drip was simply condensation from the unit. Still, we understand that this could be bothersome, and we hope we can get it taken care...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Imagine the cool ocean breeze brushing up against your cheek. Admire the views of the deep, blue, Pacific Ocean from the balconies overlooking the waves of one of our oceanfront rooms. Enjoy convenient sunning, surfing and swimming as the sand is just steps from your room.

The hotel is within walking distance of both Laguna Village and the shops and galleries along the South Coast Highway. In addition to your holiday and vacation needs, we are known for being an ideal destination for groups, social events, and wedding.
