“Charming retreat for 25th Wedding Anniversary”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

It's an older, but well maintained hotel with nice furnishings. Granted, the rooms are a little small by modern standards. Customer service was superb in that they anticipated our needs -- extra towels, extra pillows, extra blanket were already in the room. We told the front desk staff we were headed to the beach and they gave us nice beach towels and brought down chairs and an umbrella for us. The rooftop deck has an amazing view; it's one of the best in Laguna Beach. Reasonably-priced drinks and appetizers, combined with good service, make this a must-do on any Laguna trip. Hotel guests can reserve a roof-top table, which is nice because the was busy at sunset. Only issue was the garbage truck that picked up trash at 7:45 am on a Tuesday right below our ocean-view window. It was only an issue because we slept with the window open. Other than that, it was a relaxing stay in a very comfortable hotel. I definitely plan on staying here again. The hotel is located about 0.8 miles from "downtown," but it's a nice walk. Public transit along Pacific Coast Highway has frequent service and convenient service, if you don't want to walk.

This hotel has a global feel that made me feel like I was not only in beautiful Laguna Beach, a mere walk down steps to the Pacific, but the Mediterranean architecture gave my senses a European experience, and the delightful breakfast in the morning room was a total mental transport to New Orleans. Noise? I didn't notice any noise. You're at one of the world's most stunning beaches on America's famed Pacific Coast Hwy. Expect signs and sounds of life! This hotel is life at the beach with small but perfect rooms, (you can book larger rooms), the most personal and genuine service from all personnel, the K'ya Bistro is a must, and spectacular Roof Top view of the Pacific is amazing...the reason you came in the first place. Enjoy this boutique hotel and life in Laguna.

Room Tip: Check out the themed rooms on line if you want a larger room.

I created a tripadvisor profile just so I could post about this hotel. It is the perfect location, has the perfect rooftop bar, they will lend you a beach chair and towel, and although the rooms are super tiny, they are beautiful. I will be back. And I cant wait.

We stayed in this fabulous town, and chose La Casa after friends checked it out for us. The Bistro is fantastic and the roof bar a real 'must see'. We did note some negatives when checking reviews, and it is true the hotel can be noisy at times and the room we had, a Queen partial view, was small. We are Europeans and used to this but if you want plenty of room check out other rooms.
Staff were friendly and helpful and we enjoyed our stay. Short 10 minute walk to the centre and a quiet beach nearby. Would stay again.

My wife and I stayed here one night during our honeymoon last week. It was an unforgettable experience from the service we received, to the room itself, to the amazing view and lunch on The Rooftop. It was an amazing location and we can't to go back again!

My boyfriend and I stayed here last year during my spring break (which is early march) and I just booked my second stay for August. The location was great; stairs leading down to a secluded beach, good restaurants and coffee shops with all sorts of selections, shopping was not far as well as galleries. We thought the walk to go hiking just north of town was not to far either, but yet again I'm from NYC and walk everywhere. I advise you to wake up early enough to grab some complimentary breakfast since it has such a nice variety. While in laguna we went kayaking and got a cheap taxi down to dana's warf to go whale watching. They also have local buses which we took back but I had too much anxiety about the timing heading there. Even though there is no pool (who needs it with an ocean) and on the weekend it got a little loud at night from the rooftop and restaurant attached I cannot wait to come back!

My girl friend and I shared our 5 year Anniversary here at La Casa del camino, Which is an amazing place. Right away the customer service was on point. They made everything easy and run smoothly. We were greeted by DAMIEN at the front desk. Very nice gentleman. He let us know everything about the place and surrounding eateries. This hotel is 100 feet from the ocean. Also when we wanted to go to the beach, they set up chairs, Umbrella and towels for us right on the sand. Perfect! I would definitely come here again. Thank you Damien and staff for making our stay pleasant.

Room Tip: Spanish room was legit
