“Beautiful Hotel in Laguna Beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2014

My husband and I spent our third night in California at this lovely B&B in Laguna Beach. Saying B&B doesn't do justice to this elegantly appointed Inn, with spectacular, lush garden paths. Since the Inn is terraced, there are about 2 rooms per level, so we found it very private. The hot tub (by reservation only) has a view of the ocean, which is spectacular at sunset. There is also a large pool one level down from the tub, but it was too cool to swim in February. The room itself was lovely and roomy (we had 2 large suitcases with us), and the bathroom had a jacuzzi tub/shower and many toiletry items, hair dryer, magnifying mirror, robes. They seem to have thought of everything. Our bedroom had a gas fireplace, mini fridge and complimentary bottled water. We also had a private patio off our room which afforded a view of the ocean. For some reason, a staff member brought us a mini-bottle of chilled champagne just before dinner, which we ended up enjoying when we returned after dinner. Breakfast was delicious, outside under propane heated umbrellas, surrounded by flowers and greenery! It was February after all and Californians find 60F to be COLD! There was a choice of main courses, and we had cinnamon waffles with orange butter, candied nuts, whipped cream and syrup. Petite croissants with fresh fruit and coffee were offered as starters. All the staff was very professional, but warm and helpful. There is a large communal sitting area which was also warmed that morning by a gas fireplace. We decided if we return to California, to stay here for a few days again, instead of just one!

This charming and unique inn is a wonderful discovery. Staff is awesome, very helpful and friendly, attention to details is exquisite, a lovely site full of charm and coziness with an awesome ocean view. Bedding is extremely comfortable and soft, breakfast experience is delightful, many small details make the place very inviting and comfortable. Garden room had a private terrace for privacy. While we did not have time to visit the town, it seems full of charm and interesting shops to discover. Have no hesitation recommending it.

The entire pace is full of quaint personality. We enjoyed our stay so much, especially the delicious, generous, healthy, and imaginative breakfast and the glorious silky sheets! And the extra small touches (flowers everywhere, coffee available all day long, wine and cheese later in the day) were very much appreciated.

Room Tip: The least expensive rooms are very small, but the whole thing works anyway.

The Casa Laguna has a lovely old Spanish colonial style. The room was small but comfortable. Unfortunately I could hear the water running and some noise from the adjoining room. in the Although located right on Pacific Coast Highway, noise from PCH didn't bother us. We were in room 22 which was in the middle of the property. All staff was very friendly. The breakfast was excellent! The ground are beautiful. Nice touches with amenities, large bathtub. Beautiful grounds.

Room Tip: Room 22 has a king bed but no view. It is a bit dark. It has a great bathtub though.

We thank Janice S for choosing our inn for her Laguna Beach visit, and we’re so glad her stay was enjoyable. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience that may have occurred due to hearing noise from a neighboring room. If she decides to visit us again in the future, we would recommend one of our other room types that has less direct connection to any adjacent room(s). We again thank this couple for their kind review.

We stayed here because of the excellent reviews. The welcome staff are young, cheerful and professional. The breakfast was yummy, we tried the special omelet and the gingerbread waffle.

The Inn is charming - built in the 1920s and 100 years ago luxury didn't mean anything close to what it means in 2014. We had a deluxe oceanview king room. the room was claustrophobic! A king size bed shouldn't even be an option here. It took nearly 15 minutes to get hot water in the shower. The linens on the bed were soft & lovely, but the bed itself was somewhat uncomfortable.

And even though the terse notes in the Inn's literature made us feel like teenagers on Spring break, we would have been embarrassed to even think about enjoying sex since the foot traffic outside the front window was frequent and every little noise seeped through the walls.

Lastly, the parking was difficult, a narrow laned carport. We were glad that the Inn wasn't. Even so, it was very pricey. And the location is on PCH and a two mile walk or drive with tons of traffic on the Highway.

Yes, the Inn building is lovely, romantic, charming & quaint, but surely there are more deserving of the number one spot on trip advisor. Stop at the Inn for a peek, but stay somewhere else.

6 Thank Bellauno
This review is the subjective opinion of a TripAdvisor member and not of TripAdvisor LLC
CasaGirl, General Manager at Casa Laguna Hotel & Spa, responded to this review, 27 February 2014
I first want to thank Bellauno for mentioning those things he/she liked about our inn. Now, for clarification, and for the benefit of prospective guests, I need to respond to Bellauno’s many negative comments.
-Reviews: We caution prospective guests not to make a reservation for any hotel or restaurant based entirely on their excellent reviews. 90% of the guests who stay at Casa Laguna love Casa Laguna and that keeps us rated in the top two hotels for Laguna Beach and often for all of Orange County. But, as Bellauno suggests, we are not for everyone—especially those who are expecting a bustling family-style resort with valet parking and mid-sized cookie cutter rooms with catalog furniture. Those who do their research and actually read our reviews will arrive informed and unsurprised. Prospective guests should peruse our website—especially the room descriptions that actually list the square footage for each room type. This would have been of great help to Bellauno.
Luxury: Last year Casa Laguna was chosen by bedandbreakfast.com as one of the Top 10 Luxury Inns in the World. We also received Trip Advisor’s Travelers' Choice award as a Top 25 Small Hotel and Top 10 Hotel for Romance in the United States. Despite Bellauno’s analysis, apparently the experts think we’re a little nicer than the Casa Laguna Motel of 1946.
Beds: Our guest rave about our cloudlike beds, not just the bedding. But we agree somewhat with Bellauno about King beds, thus we only have a few rooms with King beds for those who just won’t accept anything else. Need a larger room? We’ve got them. Just ask. Or better yet, check them all out in advance on our website.
Intimacy: I’ve never stayed in any hotel where I didn’t hear people and children in the hall and in the rooms next door. Doors slamming, rooms service carts crashing, and icemakers thumping. You’ll hear almost none of that at Casa Laguna. We want Bellauno to know that hundreds of children have been conceived at Casa Laguna. We know, because their parents often return to celebrate. Casa Laguna is all about romance. If someone complaints about the noise of lovemaking (that’s happened maybe twice) we suggest they take a stroll and come back when it quiets down. (If the noise is late-night, continuous, or recurring, we certainly might make a discreet call to let them know, as would any hotel.)
Parking: Here we go again. Our parking spaces are exactly the same size as those in a typical grocery store parking lot. They are far larger than those typically found in the garages of many bustling hotels and family-style resorts. Some people are unduly afraid of the support poles on either side of each space. The answer is simple…swing out wide and go straight in, just like you would between two cars in a hotel parking garage. If you go in at an angle, of course you’re going to scrape something. Full size Hummers have parked there and we can provide the photos to prove it.
Location: There are hotels downtown for those who, like Bellauno, want to be within walking distant of the noisy bustling heart of the city. We are in an upscale residential neighborhood just one block from fine restaurants and just 1.5 miles from downtown Laguna Beach shops, eateries, art galleries, and summer art festivals. And, there is public transportation right outside our door—we’ll pay for a round trip on Laguna Transit.
Traffic: Like nearly every major hotel and restaurant in Laguna Beach we are on Pacific Coast Highway. It is the only way to get from one beach town to another. Bellauno is right--it sometimes gets busy.
Price: Bellauno got a free gourmet breakfast chosen from a menu of items, free parking, free evening wine reception, and most importantly, he/she paid no resort fees like they would have at most of the bustling family-style resorts.
And finally, because we are a closed compound, open only to registered guests, we only give a peek to those who have done their research and are seriously interested in enjoying a stay in our lovely, historic, award-winning boutique hotel.

My husband and I stayed here for the night on Feb 9th. Staff was friendly and helped with dinner suggestions/reservations. The property is so quaint and charming. The 1920's Spanish style is very warm and inviting! Beautiful grounds…plants and flowers and fountains at every turn. We stayed in the Courtyard room (the lowest price). It is updated nicely. There are chairs in the courtyard where we sat with our complimentary glass of wine, with an ocean view.
There is a reception from 5:30-6:30 for all guests, wine and cheese/dried fruits, etc. Nice before dinner.
Just a short walk to Victoria Beach, which is beautiful!!!! We asked for dinner recommendations and ended up eating at Tabu Grill (pricey, but worth it!!!). The front desk made the reservations for us, walkable from the Inn.
THE best part…the breakfast!! You go to eat in one of the Courtyards (or the main house). It was probably one of the best breakfasts I have ever had!!! There are unique/gourmet plays on traditional eggs benedict, waffles, pancakes. They have gluten free and vegetarian options
available also. Leave a tip!
NOTE: My husband and I are in our 30's and we were the youngest couple I saw there by about 20 years, at least. Definitely a quiet place to go and RELAX!!!!
We would definitely go again. :)

We thank Jen B for sharing her Casa Laguna experience and of course we are so happy that she and her husband enjoyed their stay with us. Our acclaimed gourmet breakfast, chosen from a menu of entrees and sides, is just one of the many things that make us the perfect getaway spot for couples like Jan B and her husband who are looking for a unique alternative to bustling family-style resorts. We do want Jen B and prospective guests to know that our customer base is made up of a wonderfully diverse group of ages, races, creeds, colors, and lifestyles. So while you’re here you may see mostly twenty-somethings from California; or mostly retirees from England, Canada, or the American Southwest; or a wide mixture of every age group from all over the world. One thing for sure, on every visit to Casa Laguna you’ll discover something or someone new and delightful. We appreciate Jen B’s valued recommendation, and we can’t wait to welcome this couple back again very soon.
