Laguna Beach Lodge was perfectly situated across the street from the Montage Resort near Downtown Laguna. Walk across down the Montage to the public beach and cove like area where you can swim in the ocean.
The Lodge is affordable especially for its great location. Some rooms have an ocean view. Our room was clean an comfortable.
All the staff where friendly and helpful. They also had a continental breakfast with fresh bagels, fruit, instant oatmeal cereals, other pastries and coffee. The outdoor pool was heated and big enough to swim in.
