Reviewed March 25, 2013

Loved this place! We didn't dine at the onsite restaurant the first night because we assumed it would be too expensive, turns out the prices are reasonable for an excellent meal and experience. The staff is friendly and the lobby is a great place to socialize and have a glass of wine with friends. The rooms are a bit small and some nights the bar above creates some noise if you wanted to get to bed early but the social scene is fun and energetic and you should at leat go check out the view from the top/outside bar area. Highly recommend!

Room Tip: choose a room away from the street side if you want a quiet room

This hotel is a beautiful property with a spectacular rooftop bar and a view that is a must see. Outdoor heaters and blankets are plentiful on chilly evenings, as rare as they are in Laguna Beach. The downstairs bar has a lot of character and is well stocked. Very cool crowd. The room we received when we were "taken care of" was the smallest room I've seen stateside, most especially at that price point. The sound of the downstairs bar carried through the halls and the scrape of the chairs from the rooftop bar on our ceiling was incessant. It took a while for it to quiet down in order to get some sleep.
To recap, super cool place, hip crowd, just noisy if you're trying to get to sleep before midnight.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room, not sure where that is though.

Thank you for posting a review of your recent stay! We are thrilled to know you enjoyed our hotel, the Rooftop Lounge and the energetic crowd we tend to attract. Most of our guest rooms are indeed on the "cozy" side, but are well designed and comfortable. Next time, you may consider one of our larger Casa Surf Suites.
Thank you again for your candid comments.

I wanted to share my recent experiences at La Casa del Camino in Laguna. My children are building a home there and I wanted to find a nice and convenient hotel to stay at while they were remodeling. I stayed there alone and felt very safe. It is right at the beach and walking distance to many great restaurants. However it actually has two of my favorite spots in Laguna, its rooftop bar and its main restaurant. The room was super with a newly remodeled bathroom. The price was super. What really was great is that the price included a full breakfast for two people and use of a local health club, which is amazing. I know because I once bought a day pass at a local health club. Not cheap!! That this was included made the great price even better.

But so many other features will bring me back. In the morning I had my coffee by a cozy fire at the front of the hotel. After that I walked around early in the morning to some great shops and went to the beach, which is right there. Laguna's beaches are amazing, and the one on Cress Street by the hotel is beautiful.

Of course it was also convenient that I could bring a glass of nice wine to my room, since they have a neat bar there which is also downstairs. All in all this seems like a great value. I did check around for prices and it was one of the cheapest and it seems like one that has it all. Oh also...free parking..you often don't get that in reasort towns.
Everyone was super friendly..so I will go back.. Enjoy!!

Room Tip: You may want to be on the third floor...I was near some bathrooms and spring break had just started...

My sister and I have met here at Casa del Camino twice a year for the past 3 years - during late winter to celebrate our birthdays, and during the summer to attend POM and Sawdust Festival. Laguna Beach is a perfect place for us because my sister lives in LA and I live in SD, so it's a half way point. We have tried many different hotels in the past 12 years or so we have been meeting in this beachside paradise. Casa del Camino is our favorite. The standard rooms are very small but the designer suites are the coolest, and defintely the way to go. We have stayed in both the Women's Billabong and last weekend we tried the Riviera. Both are great. This year when we arrived there was a complimentary bottle of wine and a birthday greeting waiting for us. There is a super rooftop lunch restaurant, as well as a dinner restaurant off the lobby called K'ya. Prices are very reasonable. The lobby has a cozy bar with fireplace. There is also free live music on Fridays & Saturdays. The locals like to congregate here. To top it off, free parking (unheard of in Laguna Beach), free breakfast buffet with the works - eggs, french toast or pancakes, bacon, sausage, etc. and a private beach where the staff will bring down chairs and towels for the guests. We can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: Look online a choose one of the designer suites.

This property has great old-fashioned character, built in the Mission revival style popular in 1920's SoCal. It is literally just down the block from a staircase onto the beach, and has phenomenal views from its rooftop restaurant--that is, if you can tolerate feeling as crammed with other people like a Tokyo subway train. The weekend vibe at La Casa del Camino is loud and festive, both upstairs and downstairs (where live music was jamming through to the late hours)--so, not a hotel to recommend for a relaxed and quiet stay, but for drinking and singing along... Our room was slightly claustrophobic (not a seaside view) and very dark, even turning on all the lights available--one shouldn't need flashlights to look through a suitcase at a hotel, but that is clearly the stylistic choice here!

Room Tip: Ours was not a room with an ocean view--and felt rather like a giant closet, because of the dark fur...

This is one of the best hotels I've stayed at. Very different. Unlike your other big hotels. The staff is very nice and helpful. Our room was amazing with a great view. Everyone who worked here made us feel at home. Our dinner at K'ya was fantastic! Loved the music that they played in the lobby area. Loved the location! The complimentary breakfast was fantastic! Veronica, made us feel at home and went out of her way to help us bring the food to the rooftop one morning and helped us out with anything else that we needed and brought us extra hot coffee and muffins all the way to the rooftop. Very charming young lady and is defiantly a great asset to your hotel! She defiantly made our morning that much better! The front desk Juliana, helped us with anything that we needed super friendly young lady! The entire staff was amazing! This was one of the best weekend getaways I have ever had! This will defiantly not be my last time coming here. Location amazing! Staff amazing! Food amazing! Can't go wrong with that! Everyone must come and stay here!!!
