“I'm ready to visit again”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2009

What a fantastic small hotel! The room we enjoyed was quiet and comfortable. The breakfast was great and staff was helpful in answering all our questions. I enjoyed a nice massage and enjoyed sitting by the pool and reading. We ate at a restaurant within walking distance that was fabulous (sorry I can't remember the name - I'm sure you'll be pointed in the right direction by staff). We like the character of this property as we prefer smaller properties with personalities all their own vs. cookie cutter hotels. We'll be back!

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2009

My girlfriend and I just returned from our stay at The casa Laguna Inn and overall we had a nice time. The food was delicious and the woman that waited on us gave us superior service. She described the menu in detail and even introduced us to the chef. She was very accomodating, knowledgable and fun. Her service was outstanding! and the food was delicious. I now understand why the reviews regarding the hotel service and food are so good!

Unfortunately, our room was very small, and although clean, we were really cramped and I felt we paid too much for the room. Further, the hotel location is at the far south side of town, we needed to use our car frequently and never informed about the trolley at check in. By rhe time we realized there even was a trolley, we were checking out!

LagunaInnkeeper, Innkeeper-Proprietor at Casa Laguna Inn & Spa, responded to this review, October 8, 2009
As always, I appreciate guests taking the time to share their thoughts about their stay with us, be it in response to our follow-up letter or, as in this case, in a more public forum. We always look for ways to improve our guests’ experience by closely monitoring those areas where we could possibly do better. It is therefore with great pleasure that I see the dedicated efforts of our innkeepers to make Casa Laguna “the perfect getaway” being recognized, and thank Lawyerup123 on their behalf for that recognition. Nothing pleases us more than to know that the personal touch with which we welcome our guests has made a difference.

Unfortunately, it appears that this guest was disappointed by the size of his room and our location. Recognizing that there is little we can do about either, I would still like to reassure our prospective future guests that the size of our rooms is not an issue for the majority of our visitors and that our location is seen by most as ideal.

Our property, being a historic bed & breakfast inn, has some rooms that might appear small when compared with those of common “big box” hotels/resorts. This being said, we are constantly complimented on the charm of our rooms, their comfort, and all of the amenities, including a small refrigerator, an ambiance fireplace, and a double jetted tub in those rooms where we were able to fit them in when we restored the inn. For guests concerned with space, we recommend our junior suites, which are much more spacious and represent an excellent value when you take into consideration all of the included amenities such as off-street parking, our award-winning gourmet breakfast, wine & cheese, high-speed internet, and access to our DVD library.

As for the location of our inn, most of our guests appreciate the fact that we are not in the middle of Laguna’s downtown congestion, yet we are just minutes from the area’s top restaurants, galleries, and the theater and festival grounds. We are just 1.7 miles from Laguna’s downtown “village” and Main Beach, and just one half-mile mile from great shops and restaurants. Also, the fact that we are located right between Laguna’s two most luxurious resorts, in an upscale residential neighborhood, is seen as an attribute by most of our guests. In addition, Victoria Beach, arguably one of Orange County’s most beautiful beaches--and a favorite of Lagunatics--is only a few minutes away by foot. Two wonderful restaurants, Dizz's as Is and Tabu Grill, are on the next block.

I am truly sorry that Lawyerip123 was not made aware of Laguna’s free trolley, since it indeed adds so much to the overall experience. We were instrumental in working with the Visitors Bureau and the City to implement this wonderful and ecological complimentary amenity, and informing guests about it is part of the personal tour we give each of them when they check in. Our staff always tends to play-up the convenience of the summer trolley, and I cannot explain why this was not done for this guest. I have, thanks to this comment, reminded our innkeepers of the importance of doing so.

Once again, I thank all your reviewers for their comments and am pleased that we were, overall, able to offer Lawyerup123 and his girlfriend a pleasant stay with us. We look forward to welcoming them again soon.

Just returned from a weekend at Casa Laguna in the Laguna Suite. Loved the room and the jacuzzi. The staff were all helpful and friendly. Enjoyed being away from the center of town. We parked our car the whole weekend and took the free trolley around town. The road is right by the room and we noticed the noise during the day, but once we went to bed and shut the windows and doors we thought it was very peaceful. We enjoyed Victoria Beach and walking around town. Loved dinner at Sapphire. We really had a peaceful time and enjoyed being lazy for the weekend.

The people here at Casa Laguna are very, very nice and accommodating. Especially, Nancy who waited on us every morning that we were there for breakfast. She was a sweetheart and makes Casa Laguna Inn that much more special. For breakfast, they will make you ANYTHING you want but take a look at their offerings. Everything is soooo good. Especially the hash with pork. The Chef is young and talented. It's a shame they don't cook all three meals there but Laguna Beach has so many offerings that it wouldn't be worth it to keep a full time staff there. The property is charming but if I were to stay there again, I would definitely get a larger room as ours were so small that my husband and I were practically tripping over each other. They are NOT in walking distance to anything unless you call a long walk walking distance but there is a free shuttle so getting around was not a problem. Overall, I may NOT stay there again as I like a LOT more elbow room but that's the only negative, albeit a big one for me.

We stayed at the Casa Laguna for one night in early July and wished it could have been more. The Inn's attention to detail is worthy of any 5* hotel - from the complimentary afternoon cheese and wine to the equally complimentary beach chairs, umbrellas and towels. The atmosphere is serene and incredibly romantic, with a beautiful pool and hot tub area and a variety of small nooks and terraces to explore. Breakfast was a real treat - and we received some excellent advice from Nancy on where to eat the previous evening - what a star! Overall, we could not fault our stay and would wholeheartedly recommend it to any couple visiting the Laguna Beach area.
