Laguna Hills Lodge

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

It was such a pleasant check in. The grounds are surrounded by beautiful flowers that make it such a delight to look at. The room is a little dated but was very clean. I read a lot of other reviews that said the rooms were very clean. Easy parking right in front of our room. I didn’t get to visit the free breakfast but it sounded like it was fine from the other reviews. There was a candy bowl at the front desk which was nice. I was traveling between Irvine and LA and this was the perfect price and location for my trip. I would recommend this place to anyone.

Nice room. Good to relax. Convinient location. Delicious breakfast.

We were told when we made our reservation that there probably would not be s problem with an erdky check in. We were st the airport st 5:30 am EST and would be flying to California. When we arrived I was told I was lying and no one would have told me that. The check in time was 3:00. We slept in our car for 2 hours and our room was not released until 3:02. We did not ask for any special type room. The could have given us any room. Very rude and unprofessional staff.

Good experience overall. Easy access to freeway. Restaurants and shopping around Nice area

The only complaint I have is that the bed was too soft and possibly old.

Very nice pool area. Very pleasant people working at front desk! Great location with freeway, restaurants and bar nearby. Nice landscaping. Would stay there again.

Great clean hotel. Within a 15 minute drive to the beach!

Nice location. Friendly staff. Rooms a little dated but clean.

The hotel is old. It's actually more like a two-story motel not a hotel. It looks old and smells old. There is no elevator to the second floor. They put me on the second floor without asking me if it was okay. They didn't offer to have someone carry my luggage upstarts. I hurt my shoulder lifting my luggage up the pebble covered steps. The breakfast was nothing great and nothing for someone gluten free except oatmeal.

We decided to stay here because of th location right across from the mall. No, not for shopping, but we ran the LH Memorial Day Half Marathon and wanted a place close by. Well, little did we know, it's right across the street. We were able to walk to and from the race! Don't let the outside fool you. It looks old and weathered. The rooms are awesome! Very spacious and clean, and we had a Cal King bed! Very happy with our stay! Can't comment on the free breakfast because our race started very early and we had to miss the breakfast

Check in was straight forward. The grounds were clean.

As soon as I got out of the car to go check in I was greeted with the scent of the lovely flowers surrounding the buildings of Laguna Hills Lodge. Room was clean and beds were comfortable. It was nice having a microwave and a mini fridge with freezer in the room. Hotel is conveniently located close to major highways, restaurants and shopping. Breakfast is included and offers limited options, unfortunately coffee is terrible, however, Starbucks is within walking distance. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. This is our second stay at this hotel.

All over a good experience. Beautiful gardens. Free Continental breakfast is helpful. Staff nice & accommodating.only complaint is they need to add an elevator to all buildings.

We stayed two nights with 2 service dogs. Our room had 2 queen beds, one for the dogs and one for us. The downside was that the hotel property didn't have any areas conducive for the dogs to "do their business" but there was some grassy areas across the parking lot in the County offices parking lot, so it was ok. The breakfast offerings are quite varied, nothing hot though except instant oatmeal, but several cereals, pastries, breads, yogurts, juices, hardboiled eggs, coffee, etc. There were a few restaurants within walking distance, BJs Brewpub is one I remember. All in all a decent stay for a decent price.

They had a plumbing problem and few hours I did not have running water, then next day they were working with the same issues on the second floor in very early morning with lots of noise

Excellent stay everything great, I wish there was a piece or two of bacon or sausage with breakfast Maybe a waffle or pancakes as well. the Bed mattresses aperently are new which were a bit too stiff but all in all I Will definitely stay here again.

We found Laguna Hills Lodge to be the perfect place since it was convenient to all the places we were going. The room was clean, spacious, comfortable and quiet. The location was easy to get in and out of. The staff was helpful and friendly. A great place to stay.

This is my second visit to this hotel. It is near my friend's home. It is well priced and a friendly, hospitable place. The staff is friendly and helpful. This time there was construction underway with updating of some rooms and driveways. Signage was excellent about how to get around. I plan to use this hotel again when I visit the area.

We have used this hotel several times as it is convenient to family and attractions. On our recent stay we experienced construction noise and minor inconvenience.

Good hotel for the money. Will recommend to others.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. We were delighted to hear you liked our Front Desk staff (check-in). Yes, the #1 compliment we receive is "very clean", and no doubt because we have an awesome housekeeping manager (Ana) who has been with us for 38 years. Thank you for your business and thank you for recommending us ^_^.

Thank you so much Andi for taking time out to write a review. Yes, we are blessed with a very good location and in terms of safety we are next door to the Laguna Hills Police Department ^_^. We appreciate your feedback on our bed. We did purchase all new Simmons mattresses in 2015 but if you would be kind enough to let me know which room you were in I will check it out to make sure the mattress is firm. Thank you.
