"Art Hotel, Very Nice, Great Price"
My wife and I really enjoyed our recent stay at the Art Hotel, Laguna Beach. The owner was very welcoming and provided great information, verbal & written, to enhance our visit. Our room was spacious, clean, and comfortable. The hotel is across the street from beach access and a few blocks walk to a great lookout point for beach watching and terrific sundowns. The hotel is right on PC Hwy. We had the second room from the front, but did not notice that much noise from the highway. The balcony afforded us an ocean view which was something we were looking for. There was plenty of free parking, which seems to be a rarity in Laguna. The hotel is a little distance from the downtown area/main beach, but we had a rental car making that no big deal. Also, there is a free trolley that was running on Fri/Sat/Sun, during our stay. Again, the owner went out of her way to make our stay great, she even provided beach towels, chairs, and umbrellas. This is not your 5 star, glitzy hotel, but that's what appealed to us, the laid back vibe made us feel right at home, and enhanced our getaway from the fast paced life to laid back beach atmosphere we were looking for. Overall, we were very pleased with our stay at the Art Hotel, and would love to return for a future visit.
