The room was great! Bed was really comfortable (for a one night stay) and the kitchenette was a bonus! I didn't like the signs of wear in the shower tub and on the bathroom walls, nor the stains on the kitchen counter, but the room was very clean! Very quiet area, and next to a coffee shop and some food spots! I think this room was the only one that had wear because the rest of the hotel is very appealing.
I think this is perfect for a businessperson that will never be in the room for other than sleep, and maybe a quick meal in the morning or evening.
The Candlewood pantry is very convenient. You can purchase, drinks, snacks and any toiletries you may have forgotten. I also love the location, which is right off of the 405. It makes it easy to travel to the beach, to San Diego and to LA.
This is a really convenient place to stay. It is just a short walk down the hill from a very nice public beach where families would enjoy the sand and water. It is a short drive from any of the Laguna attractions and restaurants. The rooms have had an obvious very recent and modern renovation and they feel luxurious. Although the property is on the Pac Hwy the buildings are inset away from it so I heard no traffic noise. The proprietor is a super friendly guy who was very accommodating and is clearly committed to making this place a success. I can recommend without reservation.
Stayed in room 229. The room and bathroom were very very clean. The front desk person was polite. The free continental breakfast in the morning was decent including juices, yogurt, muffins, waffle machine, eggs etx. Prior to this stay I had stayed at the Marriott nearby and paid an extra 50.00. Not worth it at all. This hotel will do if you are needing to stay a night or two.
