Eiler’s Inn is no more, but a new boutique hotel will be opening in its place. The hotel at 741 S. Coast Hwy was built by J. R. Leonhardt in 1946 and was the Clift Hotel until 1983. The 12-room bed and breakfast became Eiler’s Inn in 1983. The name was in honor of the famous Laguna Beach greeter, Eiler Larsen. Business partners Brent Eneix and Daniel Sussman purchased the property in 2007. Eiler’s officially shut its doors around Christmas.
