“Enjoyable weekend getaway!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

We just returned from a 1 night stay at La Casa del Camino for my birthday getaway. This hotel has character which was very much appreciated. The location is fabulous, right in the middle of town and next to the water. Parking is easy in a lot across the street. We had a non view room and although it was small, it was very comfortable. The decor was beautiful with carved wood furniture and romantic touches. We dined at the K'ya Bistro in the hotel which as usual was a great experience. The rooftop is an amazing bonus and in the morning we took our yummy complimentary hot breakfast there to enjoy the sweeping ocean views. The hotel staff was friendly and accommodating; We enjoyed our interactions with the front desk and Veronica, who was working in the breakfast room, went out of her way to bring us a plate of fruit we had been waiting for- all the way up to the rooftop! We really liked the historic feeling of the hotel and how easy it was to walk outside and be next to the ocean. We definitely will stay there again when we come back to Laguna!

Room Tip: The front desk informed us King sized rooms on the 1st floor are spacious and quiet.

I've been traveling to CA on business once a month for the last year. About six months ago, I found La Casa del Camino on Priceline and read the reviews. What surprised me was the number of review that focused on the Staff. To my fortune, the reviews were spot-on. I've had the honor and privilege to get to know the staff. They make me feel like family and consistently go out of there way to make me feel at home. Top shelf.

My husband and I had a series of travel mishaps. The entire staff helped us out at one point during our stay. Thank you Norma at the Front Desk  your help was much appreciated. Also thank you to the house man and housekeeping. The rooms were clean and pleasant. The restaurant is my favorite… Authentic Spanish food with a great wine selection. Five Stars *****

what a delightful find. The rooftop bar is a great place to watch the sunset and the happy hour prices are great.
The breakfasts enjoyed the patio garden were delicious. We were there for four nights and there was a variation in the selections.
We were concerned about the room size from the reviews,but our suite was large with a jacuzzi bath which unfortunately didn't work. Our only complaint was the decor. We had expected a tastefully med design. Instead thought we were back in the sixties with surfer decor that we would have enjoyed as teenagers 40 years ago.

We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your stay at our charming little hotel! It sounds like you stayed in one our our 10 unique Surf Suites. I'd like to let you know that we have recently remodeled all 26 of our Deluxe guest rooms in a rich Spanish theme to coincide with the hotel's original architecture. I recommend you try out one of our Deluxe King or Deluxe Partial View Queen rooms during your next visit... you won't be disappointed!
Looking to seeing you again!

Spent a few nights in the Cottage. Great for a family (fully-fitted kitchen, washing machine, dishwasher). Superb location; excellent staff. A real treat. Would definitely choose this hotel on a future visit to Laguna Beach.

Good: yes, it has character-it's not just another motel. About 50 yards from great beach access.
Comfortable beds and proper tub ( except in the suites, which strangely only have showers).Majority of staff friendly and keen to help.
Bad: Mexican theme means rooms are decorated in a sepia-type finish, and with dim lights, are dark, especially smaller rooms ( most of the rooms are small)..can be very noisy..recommend do not have rooms 105,106,107 at weekend because staff have to go past constantly to serve food in the courtyard...and would expect rooms on PCH side to be noisy.
Restaurant- tried once, has complicated half-price offer on Tuesdays, food was OK but you can do better in LB. No pool, spa, etc.

Thank you for taking the time to post your review. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the unique character of La Casa del Camino, and that you slept comfortably.

It's regrettable that our newly renovated Deluxe rooms were not pleasing to you. Our vision for the renovation of our Deluxe guest rooms was to maintain the Spanish style in which our hotel was originally built, in 1927, while updating the rooms with the modern amenities of a boutique hotel.
I'd like to let you know that we have 10 additional guest rooms which were each uniquely designed by 10 different surf companies. These are our Casa Surf Suites, and based on your feedback, I think you would enjoy one of these rooms more than our Deluxe rooms. You can see pictures of our various guest rooms on our website.

To clarify our Tuesday Bonus Happy Hour - When you buy any cocktail, beer or wine, you receive half off any food item on the dinner menu. Tuesday Happy Hour is offered 5:30-close in K'ya Bistro.

Your candid comments are appreciated, and we hope to have the opportunity to host you again, perhaps in one of our Surf Suites :)

Warm Regards,
Charlotte, Guest Services

I had the chance to stay at Casa del Camino again and it was the best experience imaginable. This was my second visit. I arrived late and James greeted me warmly and assisted in getting the perfect room with an ocean view. Norma manages the place smoothly, and thanks to Belen, Veronica, and Meghan, the guests have a wonderful experience. The ambiance of this 1929 resort can't be found in today's structures. The rooftop deck is worth the trip alone! Not the fanciest place, but the best value for your money. Very dog friendly too. For relaxation and reflection, it's just steps from the beach. Efficiently located at the south end if town so the business traveler isn't caught up in the traffic. I found all that I needed within a short walking distance. Do your research, look around at the other hotels and resorts. You'll find everything you need here at a very reasonable price. I will definitely stay at the Casa del Camino again!
