Let me say first off the stuff were very helpful and great during the 3 days we were there. The hotel is run down but in the pictures looks sparkling! The location is first rate...close to town, step away from Ralph's and the beach. The room is laid out in an odd way...lots of things do not work. Great to have a fridge though :)The jacuzzi tub was not working but they said they apologized and the jacuzzi outside was working. It was not. The lounge chairs and deck chairs were stained and shabby looking...not at all inviting. The tub to climb into, was about 36 inches high...any disability in this hotel would not work...stairs up to the room were steep and narrow also. There is a BBQ( not the built in one showed on the pictures) that stands outside with no propane rank...maybe you have to bring your own?? I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.
We had a wonderful experience at this hotel. Sergio couldn't have been more helpful or sincere at what he does to make his guests feel special and appreciated!! Thank you for that. The room was clean and spacious and the beds were very comfortable. Loved the room rate which was a big factor in choosing where to stay, but it had to be a nice hotel too. But let me say, this was more than nice. Soooo close to the beach and village also. Plenty of utensils and such for the kitchenette, and the AC worked great. Spacious closet and nice bathroom. The outdoor patio was very nice and clean. The maid was super nice too. A big thankyou to all the staff for making our stay very memorable. We will return!!
Location= Fantastic Layout of property= Love It Room Size= Excellent What's missing= Upkeep the couch in my room was a mess- the leather like material was all cracked and looked awful. The TV stand was missing strips of it's laminate, the gate door is awful- and being this property is only 14 rooms (which i love), they are not staffed 24 hours a day- so I had to jump the fence to get in because the door was so jammed up when entering my code. I complained the next day and was told to just PULL VERY HARD on the handle. I did so the next day (I had to pull the knob with both hands with the strength of feeling as if I was going to tear the door off). Lastly the hot tub did not work for me- and no one was on the property to notify them. It was a bummer walking to the hot tub with my music and vino to find out it was not working. I notified the lady at check-out. She said "sorry"
I booked a room at 14 West for 1 night while visiting Laguna Beach with my husband after reading pretty positive reviews on multiple sites. Upon entering the room, it was dark and dingy and smelled of mildew. Furniture was beat up and there were scratches across the surface of the glass table in the room. Ceilings had what appeared to be black mold spots. Bed was uncomfortable and bedding reeked of a strong bleach odor. Towels had stains on them. Not to mention, the noise from the air conditioner was loud and kept us up all night. There was a fireplace in the unit, but there did not appear to be any carbon monoxide detector. I couldn't get out of this place fast enough.

Chris is very friendly he will go out of his way to make sure you enjoy your stay 14 west is the best place to stay in Laguna The rooms are very clean We love this place. Is walking distance to restaurants and the beach
I always feel like going to any really good beach community in California is going to cost $300+ per night for anything a) cool and b) close to the beach. 14 West is both. It's a boutique hotel which means it's small and you're not going to get the services that someone like me never uses anyway. In fact, the gate code might suddenly not work and you have to be able to deal with one flight of stairs from the subterranean parking, but those are small prices to pay for everything else in the plus column. What we love about this place: - Location. It's right off PCH and 1 block from beach with simple access. You can walk across the street to the classic Orange Inn for breakfast which we did nearly every morning. Bike shop 2 blocks away. An abundance of surf shops everywhere. Downtown Laguna, short walk. Really, you don't even need a car unless you're going exploring or headed to the San Juan bike trail system :) - Big Rooms. We've stayed in several of the rooms and they're all great. Pretty new, clean, big shower, kitchenette, coma-level bed, gas fireplace. - Clientele. The outdoor common area is a main gathering point and we've actually gotten to know other guests. Trust me, we typically aren't those people, but this place attracts fun couples. - Staff. Small, conscientious and largely hidden. The good news is they're nice people and super helpful (even let us clean our bicycles off with the hotel hose).
Surprised to have found this little reserved quiet and wonderfully located hotel. Strange parking set up (hard to turn in from main road when coming from north. Well set up amenities for those willing to cook light.
We have visited Laguna Beach over a dozen times during the past decade, staying at cute little BandBs, cottages, etc. We just made a last-minute trip to celebrate a birthday, all our other haunts were booked up, and we found 14 West online. I booked it with some trepidation, but let me tell you - it has become our go-to spot from this point forward. In many ways it felt like Asia to us, classy, sensual - very well kept and managed. We had our children with us, both under 8, and they loved it as well. Comfortable beds, awesome bathroom, fireplace, kitchenette... just stunning for the price. Highly recommended.
The room was beautiful !!! The décor was gorgeous and the room had a kitchenette. The staff was friendly and welcoming. Fantastic location in downtown Laguna Beach. The ocean was just a short walk away. Highly recommended.
