Be the star of the show with this week's escape to the Inn at Laguna Beach, where you can bask in the glow of the real Orange County.

Get your dose of a very different kind of drama with sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean and a series of charming shops, restaurants and nearby attractions.

Choose between two nights in a Village Room ($269) or Ocean View Room ($399)—they both rake in high ratings. You and a co-star will be perfectly cast as relaxed and rejuvenated thanks to your serene setting, boasting plantation shutters, ceiling fans and luxurious featherbeds. Your getaway includes a welcome amenity, 50% off the resort fee and parking, wi-fi access, fresh cookies and coffee in the lobby, and evening wine receptions.

"[The Inn at Laguna Beach] walks the fine line between homey and hip with personable finesse," says Lonely Planet. "And if fresh-baked cookies and sleek amenities aren't enough, this three-story hotel's perch on a gorgeous bluff overlooking Main Beach will assuredly seal the deal."

Settle into the premiere of your own new season with a daily continental breakfast delivered to your room. Then, turn heads by the pool or make like a sun-kissed starlet and take your included amenities (umbrella, chairs, and towel) to the beach.

Discover a network of art galleries and frequent festivals within walking distance, or produce an entire afternoon of outdoor recreation. For the finale, head to Las Brisas, located next door to the Inn. The legendary hot spot offers specialty margaritas, authentic Mexican cuisine and panoramic coastal views. The evening sunsets are definitely a show you can't miss.

You'll be begging for reruns after taking this escape to the California coast.
