Laguna Beach hotel options are many and varied, from the historic Hotel Laguna to the stunning Montage Resort. Hotels in Laguna range from small and charming to large chic resorts. The ones listed below represent a small selection that are highly rated by travelers.
Most Laguna Beach accommodations lie on either side of the very busy Pacific Coast Highway (Hwy 1), so you can choose from being on the beach or within close walking distance.
In summer there is a free open air trolley shuttle that goes to the north, the south, and up the canyon to the three art festivals.
Staying in Laguna Beach is the perfect place to get that Mediterranean artist’s colony beach town experience.
