Excellent 10/10
Exceeded our expectations. Free underground parking. Oversized room as was my friend's room. We had a large patio with a high-top table to sit and enjoy a morning coffee! The rooms were clean and the beds were very comfortable. Ample clean towels in the lobby, along with a laundry basket for your used towels. Very nice, helpful on-site staff. Will definitely come back.

Would stay again.
Ok here’s what we wish we knew: you will have to drive to a beach area because the “beach” across the street is all stairs and rocks with no sand. While it is of course BEAUTIFUL, there is no actual beach to lay out and relax on. The good news is there are areas very close to be on the beach. The pool/hottub/ rooftop deck area of this hotel is the STAR for sure! Sooo nice and you can see the ocean from the roof. Parking is suuuper easy and free as there is a parking deck right under the hotel. Free in and out all hours no hassles at all. Room has a fridge/ coffee maker but no microwave fyi. Beds are comfy. Bathroom/ shower is great. TV sucks (it’s just a ROKU that I guess you could sign in to all your own personal stuff to watch but we never figured it out). Overall, we’d stay again if we were willing to work a little bit for beach space and didn’t have any specific tv needs! The pool/hottub do make up for the lack of beach for our needs. You can’t really get in the Atlantic anyway. Water is VERY rough around Laguna Beach. It was a nice stay. We absolutely LOVE Laguna.

Great place in Laguna Beach
Love staying at this Sonder location. Very clean, comfortable, and great location. The TV streaming was an issue and needs to be improved.

Great location and ample parking.
I really liked my room. It was very large the sink was separate from the toilet which is great with two getting ready. The bed was super comfortable but not necessary to have 6 pillows that were all the same softness/hardness. If they were different I would understand. It was a bit noisy as my room faced the street but I did have a little ocean view. I just turned the air conditioner up to drown out the street noise. The hall carpet was very stained and not too appealing. My daughter and her husbands room was terrible, as it was literally on a dungeon. No light on the first floor and entered through the garage. The location of the property was fantastic. Right at the free trolley stop into town and across the street from a great beach next to a very high end hotel. Next time I’d try to get an upper floor facing away from the highway. I hope to come back soon

Great location
This hotel was so convenient! Best location, literally walked everywhere In Laguna. The room was very updated, modern, and clean. The bed was absolutely heavenly. The shower was great but only complaint was water went everywhere on the floor due to wheelchair accessibility so needed extra extra towel service to clean up. But free parking and easy access. Definitely will book again.
