“A beautiful getaway to a charming inn”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013

I spent two nights at Casa Laguna and must say it is quiet a getaway. The hotel was fully booked but the property never felt crowded and the staff never seemed stressed. As other reviewers have mentioned the grounds and landscaping are incredible. The bed was incredibly comfortable and the room immaculate. I opted to stay in an ocean view room towards the back of the property - mainly to get a view of the ocean over the other buildings and also to avoid the street noise. The hotel does sit adjacent to the Coast Highway - so when you are outside or at the front of the property you will hear car traffic most of the day. The pool area is so peaceful. And finally, the afternoon reception is incredible - and the breakfast is worthy of an upscale restaurant.

The staff at the Casa Laguna deserves praise. During the second day of my visit, I must have eaten something (NOT at the hotel, but out and about) and that night I had some stomach problems. The hotel brought Pepto Bismol tablets to my room and offered items not on the breakfast menu that were milder to my stomach. I thought that was a nice touch.

The hotel is about 1.5 miles from town. So it's not at the center of the action in the town. But .... that's not necessarily a bad thing.

I think the next time I go back - I'll try another room as there are many options for room styles and sizes.

Oh - Be warned -- this hotel has lots of stairs and really isn't designed for the handicapped or people who have difficulty climbing stairs.

Room Tip: Rooms in the back of the property on the second floor are quieter.

Sure, Casa Laguna is known as a romantic getaway for couples, but we always love hearing from one of our many solo travelers who find our property the perfect place to just relax and unwind in beautiful surroundings and enjoy award-winning service and food. We want to thank GareThere for his patronage and for taking the time to write this wonderful review accompanied by fabulous photographs.

We usually don't stay at B&B's but went with the top rating from Trip Advisor and we were thrilled we did it. This was a relaxing quiet place. We spent a little more for the Laguna suite and we agreed with past reviewers it was great to have a small sitting area. The pool was small but perfect for lounging and lots of lounge chairs. Even though we had a room right in front of PCH I can honestly say it didn't bother us noise wise. The breakfast was phenomal. Above all the staff was extremely attentive and friendly. We walked into town and also liked how easy it was to walk to the beach.

Room Tip: Suggest a suite with a seating area for a little more room. The laguna suite had a small balcony whe...

We know that walking 1.5 miles from our inn to downtown Laguna is not for everyone, but we’re always happy to hear that one of our guests took that casual stroll through Laguna’s beautiful neighborhoods. We also appreciate LADuckFan’s mention that they were not bothered by the occasional background sounds from historic Pacific Coast Highway. As many of our prior guests have said, for most people it just becomes white noise and does not detract from the enjoyment of our lush grounds and ocean view terraces. We cannot thank this couple enough for choosing our inn for their special getaway, and for letting others know how much they enjoyed their stay.

Laguna Beach is, well, Laguna Beach. Charming, beautiful, quaint, busy and expensive. Casa Laguna has the charming, beautiful and quaint aspect in spades. Remarkable ocean views. Cozy and luxuriant landscaping surrounds outdoor dining area where an amazingly imaginative, high quality breakfast is served daily as part of the package. The staff are friendly, efficient and informed. We just spent a week at Casa Laguna while visiting nearby family. We will stay next time, as well. As a former Laguna resident, it was good to feel as though I lived there once more. The fact that it is NOT in the middle of town is an advantage. The room prices are not cheap, but with the included excellent breakfast and wine/appetizers from 5-7 pm, we felt that the value was good.

We stayed for two nights and enjoyed our brief stay. The place is calming and ambiance is lovely. The service was attentive and the breakfast was really good. The warmth and welcome of the staff is worth mentioning we do hope to visit it soon.

There is noise from the PCH, but the property is so lovely and romantic that you do not notice it. If you do not want a "Holiday Inn" experience Casa Laguna is the place to stay. It is not in the middle of town, but is within long walking distance or easy car distance. The rooms are tiny (as were most when this structure was built) and well appointed with many amenities. We had a courtyard room, but it still had wonderful private patio and a view of the ocean. We walked in and I could not get to the front desk without stopping to admire the antiques in the main building. The place is exceptional. We stayed 2 days, but I could have made an entire vacation of it. I do not believe I had discovered all of the interesting nooks and crannies by the time we left. The breakfast is worth the price. The breakfast is exceptional even when compared to "The St. Regis" a few miles away. The beverage bar that is open all day and into the night was a great feature if you are a coffee or tea drinker as I am. There was freshly brewed coffee all day. The only negative was the King size bed in a room that needed a queen. We mentioned it at the front desk, but she woman didn't seem to get that the added room would have meant more to me than the big bed. I can't wait to have an excuse to travel to Ca. soon to stay at this B&B.

We greatly appreciate Beale_St_Sam’s fair and balanced review and we’re so glad they have decided to return to Casa Laguna in the future—perhaps for that extended vacation. We especially appreciate the mention that our breakfast, which is included at no extra cost, is worth the price of the room—high praise indeed. In regard to the King bed, we must apologize that Beale_St_Sam’s suggestion was not given more attention/reaction by our guest service associate. Just as this guest favors room space over bed size, we have many guests who simply insist on a King bed regardless of the room in which they are staying. Only one Patio Room and one Courtyard Room has a King bed--the rest of those room-types have Queens. As a result of Beale_St_Sam’s comment, we are currently running numbers on how many requests we get for a smaller room type with a King bed, and we may indeed change one or more out for queens. Should this guest decide to return to Casa Laguna in the interim, they should be aware that we have 10 room types with a choice of King and Queen beds in most room types. We suggest they peruse the “Rooms” section of our website and perhaps choose a larger room or suite, or if they again prefer a smaller room (we call them “artist rooms”) simply tell us they want a Queen bed and we will make every effort to accommodate them. Again, our sincere thanks to this couple for choosing our inn and for their kind review.

My wife and I went there again this year as a little mid week break while visiting our son in Long Beach. Superb Breakfast every morning. Service is very good. I recommend staying in one of the rooms on the side where you have a semi private patio. There is significant road noise from the PCH but we are used to that since we live in the city.

Each time we have spoiled ourselves with a couples massage and hot tub soak. Very pleasant.

Staff is very friendly and helpful. And we love the way the place winds around with little nooks and crannies. Can't wait to go back.

As we’ve mentioned before, our Patio Rooms are also our own personal favorites. Yes, management does get a chance to stay at Casa Laguna ourselves from time to time and these cozy rooms with patios and jetted tubs just seem to be a perfect fit. For us, like CDmegill and most of our guests, the minor road sounds sometimes heard on the patio soon just fade away as white noise. However, those who are sensitive to ambient sounds might want to choose a room in the interior of the property. We thank Cdmegill for their kind compliments about our award winning food and service, and we’re so pleased they frequently choose to take advantage of our popular spa services designed for couples. We want this couple to know how much we appreciate their loyalty and continued patronage, and we hope to see them again very soon.

Laguna Beach has always been a favorite spot for us and this B and B really pushed the envelope. The place is a beautiful hidden treasure. My husband and I spent three nights in a room overlooking the ocean. It was cozy and well appointed with an ambient fireplace and whirlpool tub. And there was a comfortable bench just outside our door to watch the sunset from.The staff is warm and enthusiastic about this property and so helpful in all ways. The breakfast served out on a gorgeous, tiered, flower adorned patio was the best. They prepare gourmet specialties that are unique and so delicious. An evening wine and cheese buffet is also offered and can be enjoyed on the patio or in reception area. Though there is lots to do in the area you really want to spend time enjoying this very charming hotel. We'll definitely be back.

Room Tip: Pick an ocean view on the top floor.

CasaGirl, General Manager at Casa Laguna Hotel & Spa, responded to this review, March 16, 2013
We appreciate IIllini’s flattering description of their stay in one of Casa Laguna’s popular ocean view room. (“Perfect” is our favorite review title.) While our inn sits a few blocks away from the beach, being situated on a terraced hillside means that there are sprawling ocean views from many balconies and patios throughout the property. The ocean view room IIllini chose was a deluxe room, meaning that it has a jetted spa tub built for two. Non-deluxe rooms have a bright and cheery glass enclosed shower, but the same marvelous Catalina sunset view from both the window and the dedicated courting bench just outside the door as mentioned by IIllini. We thank IIllini for choosing Casa Laguna, and for their kind comments about our dedicated staff and award-winning food. We’re pleased to know that this couple has decided to become a member of Casa Laguna’s ever-growing family of regularly returning guests.
