I searched for a few weeks for a nice romantic hotel in the Newport/Laguna area to spend a couple nights with my wife and finally settled on Casa Laguna based on the reviews.
We were not disappointed.
Its always a little scary to book a trip to a place you've never seen with your own eyes but the testimonies on various websites convinced me it was worth the money.
I'll admit the very first thing that attracted me to this inn was their website. So many other hotels had really crappy sites - their site was attractive, well organized and had prices and nice pictures of the rooms. Well done Casa Laguna Inn.
We stayed in a deluxe garden room - number 22. I wanted to make sure that we had a bathtub and I wasn't too concerned with not having an ocean view. I was concerned that being so close to the highway it might be noisy but that wasn't the case. Once you enter onto the grounds of the inn you really feel like you have been transported out of the busy city.
The room was very clean, bed was comfortable and there were little personal touches like the gift basket with our name on it.
When we wanted to go to the beach they had an umbrella and beach chairs for us to use. There is a nice beach with parking just a short drive away.
They serve horderves and wine every evening which was a fun treat and the breakfast in the morning was amazing. I had steak and eggs both mornings and I don't think I've had a better steak and eggs meal.
If you are looking for a getaway with your wife for a great price I can't recommend Casa Laguna any higher.
