This is at the top of our list for a return visit. The hotel takes care of any accommodations you may need for a vacation at the beach. Even the beach toys and games in the gift shop are affordable. The restaurant Splashes located in the hotel is delicious and brought my children blankets when they got chilly at our late dinner. Other restaurants and shopping are all within walking distance from the hotel. We will definitely be heading back here for our next beach vacation. So worth the price of the room. Who doesn't love falling asleep listening to the sound of waves crashing on the beach? If not, ear plugs are provided in the room next to your bed. Turn down service with chocolates is also a nice perk!
We loved the Montage! We have stayed in many great hotels, and on this trip to California also stayed in the Biltmore Four Seasons in Santa Barbara, and Shutters in Santa Monica. The Montage was far and away the best of these three. The service was faultless, the hotel and surrounding grounds beautiful, and dining options excellent. The views are wonderful, and little touches (like a complimentary champagne in the room bar), make all the difference - great attention to detail.
There is a 5 star restaurant in the grounds of the hotel - The Studio, which was great for a special occasion, but the more informal dining options were also great quality. Really, we couldn't find any faults! Well done Montage!

Our hotel was very pleasing. The room was small but it worked for use. We had a side view of the ocean from the room. Very clean as well. We only had a short stay. Everyone was very helpful. We had breakfast on the roof overlooking the ocean. They had parking close by as well.
We will go back when its a little cooler weather and stay longer!
The Capri is essentially a motel with clean rooms, a nice staff and a spectacular location. My only "complaint" is we checked out on a Sunday but they weren't accommodating about a Kate check out or even a reasonable half day rate. But maybe our oceanfront room was booked and they had no choice. I would stay there again
Nothing more, nothing really all that less. Simple accommodations in the heart of Laguna. Queen View room was actually a tad nicer and larger than I expected. Without a room with balcony and a view, I would probably not stay here. Even with an upgraded room, it felt like we were "glamping." Housekeeping was an issue. But for the price, I'm not sure there are any other options in town! We traveled with a two year old in a pack and play, there was adequate room for that to be set-up at night, which was a concern when booking.
I loved the location. It's right on Main Beach and within walking distance to Pageant of the Masters and shops and restaurants. They also have complimentary cookies and milk after 6 pm and wine reception at 5 pm. Nice touch.
Overall, our room was comfortable but dated. However, there was some ambient building noise at night. It sounded a lot like the HVAC but we couldn't pinpoint it so we just turned on the ceiling fan to cover up the noise. For $400/night + $35 for parking, I think The rooms should have been first class.
Staff was very friendly and helpful.
Reality TV portrays Laguna Beach as the land of the young and spoiled. But beneath this veneer is a city rooted in the arts. The Laguna Playhouse is one of the oldest theaters in the West Coast. The city also hosts the annual Festival of the Arts/Pageant of the Masters and the Sawdust Art Festival. West of Laguna Beach, Crystal Cove State Park’s unspoiled beach attracts snorkelers and divers.
