Aliso Creek Inn Hotel Review: Located in a coastal valley a few minutes from white-sand beaches, surfing and the charms of art-and-boutique-filled Laguna Beach, this country-style inn sits on 80 acres of lush grounds that include a nine-hole golf course and panoramic ocean views. Guests here are smitten by the refined, low-key style, which perfectly captures the SoCal state of mind. Many conventions and business meetings are held at the inn, so take note: on occasion, suits prevail. Contemporary guest rooms offer spacious, airy, apartment-style quarters with private, fenced patios, perfect for taking in fresh sea air. A country club ambience permeates the appropriately named Ben Brown’s tenth hole, which invites guests to enjoy light breakfast fare or a grill menu ranging from burgers to seafood while indulging in the patio's coastal atmosphere. With this cozy setting in mind, consider coming here in the winter, when the air is brisk and you can enjoy the picturesque streets of Laguna Beach without the crush of summertime tourists.
