“Outstanding Stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

My husband and I just returned from a 6-night stay at Casa Laguna and had a wonderful time! The property is beautifully landscaped, with many private nooks and charming areas, perfect for a quiet escape. Though sold-out during the first few nights, the property still seemed spacious and provided enough options to feel secluded. We also loved that it's a couples-only facility, which further adds to its intimacy.

We also felt that the Inn offered an incredible value! Each morning, we enjoyed wonderful breakfasts, with fresh fruits and several seasonal options (including vegetarian and vegan selections). Throughout the day, refreshing beverages, including infused waters, fresh lemonade and teas are available. And the evening brought a selection of wines, small appetizers, and these wonderful Castelvetrano olives. The onsite pool is great for a soak, and the Inn will even provide beach chairs and umbrellas for a trip to a nearby beach (Victoria Beach is about a ten minute walk, and others are a short drive away). While being on PCH is not optimal, the proximity to the town of Laguna Beach and all the wonderful canyons and hiking trails in the area is great! This is truly a lovely sanctuary, away from the bustle of the tourists, but close enough to enjoy all that this part of SoCal has to offer. We will definitely stay again when we return to the area.

Room Tip: Ocean view rooms are worth a few extra dollars. While the rooms are not large, they offer every ame...

Green Features: Very happy that they are at the bronze level. We seek properties with a commitment to environmentally sound practices and this shaped our decision to stay here. We also liked to monarch butterfly preserve in the back of the property.

A nice gem. Quiet and welcoming. We particularly liked the fact that the hotel was for adults only. We had fled the Montage hotel as their pool was overrun with young children. Casa Laguna Inn was lovely, relaxing and quiet. The breakfast and evening canapés were superb. The staff were accommodating and friendly. All round 10 out of 10. Only downsides were a little road noise and the rooms seemed a little cramped. However, would recommend a stay at this hotel.

What a find the Casa Laguna Inn and Spa is! I am just sad that just a couple of small issues would have made this a 5 star rating. After much research about this property, I made one error that I would have never thought I would have needed to do....CALL FOR ROOM DETAILS. I decided upon an ocean view room, with the "new" shower stall - not needing the deluxe room with the 2 person whirlpool tub (we never take baths - only showers). BIG MISTAKE. The new shower stall barely holds 1 person! The shower head was so high that water didn't get to much of my 5'3" body, and I could barely reach the shower gel dispenser mounted on the wall. I have stayed on cruise ships, river boats, NYC hotel rooms, European hotel rooms -and this was the single worst bathroom I have ever been in. Using the toilet meant sitting half-way off as the toilet paper roll mounted on the wall stuck into my arm. The only towel bar was too close to the counter below so the towel draped onto the counter and anything we tried to put there. And only one hook. Truly a terrible situation in the bathroom. The bedroom was airconditioned, with a ceiling fan, and windows on both ends of the room, with a view of the ocean. Nighttables were terribly tiny. HOWEVER, the overall atmosphere of the property, with flowers blooming everywhere, and intimate places to sit, to read, or chat - with gentle music playing everywhere was wonderful. The included breakfast was DELICIOUS! The access to tea, water, coffee and lemonade was lovely. We didn't indulge in the afternoon appetizers as we were usually on our way out for the evenings. Summer free trolley stop was literally at the front door. If you are disabled, inquire about room location - there are lots of stairs needed to move around the property. The staff were incredibly pleasant! WE WILL BE BACK - but in a different room!

We are so pleased this couple enjoyed their stay with us and plan to become one of our many valued regularly returning guests. We look forward to their return and we recommend that they take a moment to peruse our website before booking, so that they can see photographs and read a full description of all of our ten room types—including the square footage. Casa Laguna is a historic property, with portions built in the 1920s and 1940s. Our Courtyard, Patio, and Ocean View rooms are “artist rooms,” so-called because they retain the original 1940s size and layout, while sporting modern plumbing and amenities. There are a few artist rooms that have no tub, only enclosed showers. These enclosures are 34” square, which is 5” wider than tub enclosures in the typical American home. Our guests like to call these rooms “cozy,” and they are part of charm that brings people back to our inn again and again. However, we do have a number of suites and junior suites that are more suited to those who prefer a room size in line with modern resort hotels. And all of these have Texas-sized jetted spa tubs built for two. We greatly appreciate TravelingtexHouston’s thorough and balanced review that gave us the opportunity to provide more detailed information for prospective guests, and we thank them for their valuable patronage.

I had booked an ocean view room as a treat for my wife on our honeymoon and we stopped on our drive down from San Francisco to San Diego. I'm telling you this because we were travelling heavy and the rooms weren't the biggest, however, you soon forget all about that once you meet the staff, see the overall picture and watch the sunset on the ocean with a glass of champagne.

All the facilities, the value for money and most importantly the staff made our stay a memorable part of our honeymoon and we are eternally grateful. There is absolutely no doubt we'll be back and hopefully there will be a laundry service ;).

Room Tip: The ocean view room wasn't the biggest but if you don't mind squeezing in for a few days you...

We thank 795Danny for his kind review and we’re thrilled this couple plans to return to Casa Laguna in the not too distant future. We have 10 different room types, including more expansive suites and mini-suites (see reply to the review above for more details), but our most popular rooms are cozy “artist rooms”—so-called because they retain the size and layout of the historic 1940s motel rooms while providing modern plumbing and amenities. We invite this couple to peruse our website before their next visit so that they can choose the room that best suits their needs. We again thank them for their patronage and we look forward to their return.

Took my girl here for her birthday. Loved it! Got a room with a view and it was nice. I mean real nice. Like everyone else has stated the breakfast is amazing and the wine in the evening is a nice touch. No need to worry about getting to either Casa isn't stingy about their offerings. We had the same waitress each morning and she was very cool. The grounds are beautiful and the Trolly pick up right out front is perfect!!!

My husband and I spend a wonderful two nights celebrating our wedding anniversary. The room was smaller than a hotel room, with a desk, king bed, and a large spa tub, but sufficient. The bedding was deluxe and the bathroom soaps and lotions were light and fresh. They even provided bath salts for the tub. The grounds made me feel like I was in a European B & B. Many levels with flowers and privacy. Chairs and tables throughout to enjoy the marine breeze and the quiet and peaceful surroundings. The breakfasts were delicious and made to order from a menu. Coffee, lemonade and water is provided 24 hours. Towels are provided for the beach. If you want to be in the middle of the town of Laguna downtown, this is not the place, but there is a free trolley that picks you up right outside the front door! There is free parking, so you don't have to drive anywhere. The beach access is close by. This is a quiet place without children. There are not a lot of rooms. I would highly recommend this place for a special occasion.

Room Tip: A room off of Pacific Coast Highway might be quieter. We were not directly on the street side and d...

Like so many of our guests, siesta2014 experienced that feeling of being thousands of miles away at a Spanish or Italian villa. It’s something we strive for by maintaining our unique architecture, our lovingly cared for gardens, and a “guests only” policy. In addition to the free summer trolley enjoyed by this couple, there’s a city transit shuttle that is very inexpensive and Casa Laguna will pay for one round trip each day. We thank siesta2014 for letting others know about the many features and amenities she enjoyed at our inn, and we hope this couple will have the opportunity to visit again very soon.

This B&B really stands out amongst the larger resorts in Laguna (Montage, surf and sand, etc.) It's charming, clean, and small. It's "couples only" mantra worked fine for our older daughters (early 20's) traveling with us. With the exception of a loud-mouthed neighbor through paper-thin walls, the only sound issue was the mild roar coming from PCH which borders the property. It's not a deal breaker if you're prepared. They make due with tight parking spaces, inclusive gourmet breakfasts that are rich and well prepared and service from their very young staff, which is sincere and dedicated (though our check-out was a confusion of papers and numbers which was unfortunate.) Do not miss a massage, which was the glowing highlight of our stay. It's a bargain at $110. If you want to feel more pampered than the masses at The Ritz Carlton down the street, and are willing to shrug off small (but comfy) rooms, flies at breakfast and the rumble of the highway, this might be a fun 2-night getaway. The view of the ocean out your window ain't bad either.

We greatly appreciate Jim F’s fair and balanced review, and we’re so pleased he and his ladies were able to enjoy many of our popular services and amenities. Those reading this review need to know that Casa Laguna has ten different room types scattered over a wide expanse of property, and we invite prospective guests to peruse our website before booking so that they can choose the room that best suits their needs. In addition to the cozy “artist rooms” mentioned by Jim F (so-called because they retain the size and layout of the historic 1940s motel rooms while providing modern plumbing and amenities) our inn also boasts expansive suites and mini-suites for those who want something less historic and more in tune with modern resort accommodations. We sincerely apologize to this guest for any difficulty during check-out. This is a rare occurrence, and rest assured we have taken steps to assure it does not happen again. We thank Jim F for choosing our inn and for taking the time to share his experience with others through this forum.
