“Last minute surprise”
Reviewed 11 January 2014

Was able to book this room day of and totally lucked out once we saw what we were getting! This was a wonderful hotel right on the water. Full of charm. Small rooms, but a great classic decor, dark hardwood floors. Simple. Amazing rooftop bar, that, though crowded, we caught a beautiful sunset while drinking some awesome drinks.

La Casa Del Camino is a gem amongst rocks. If you are into classical Spanish design and architecture this place is for you! From the moment my girlfriend and I walked in the door we are immediately in love with the ambiance. The staff was amazing, starting with the person I would have to say is responsible for us having an amazing first impression. When you check in, ask for Norma if you can, everyone is so friendly but she has a certain spark and charisma that lights up the room and our attitudes. Kudos for Norma!
There's a very nice bar at the lobby with a huge fireplace and lounge area, where the live music is being played. Pay attention to who's playing they will be famous one day! The food at he Bistro is amazing, but if you'd like venture outside, not only is La Casa Del Camino walking distance to just about everything you're looking for (including a supermarket and a liquor store), but at night there's a shuttle that will take you anywhere in Laguna and bring you back, for free. The rooftop dinning was breathtaking, especially at sunset! I have never seen the sun set like I did in Laguna, and rooftop is a front row seat to such a breath taking view. I believe on Fridays and Saturdays the rooftop turns into a lounge/club for a few hours.
I read a few complaints about the lights being dim and music being a bit loud until about 10PM at night, this is definitely a case of the glass being half full or half empty. We loved the lack of bright lights and the live music (acoustic might I add). some of the rooms were small, but they were still beautiful, and to be honest, we were in Laguna Beach, you don't come here to stay in your room, we used it for sleep and the other fun thing! :-). The decor was so beautiful, we stayed for about 12 days and in those 12 days they allowed us to switch to different rooms as we please. We wanted to experience every angle of the hotel because it has become a vacation destination for us for life!
My girlfriend and I had a wonderful time at La Casa Del Camino and will definitely be back soon!
Cheers!

Room Tip: Ask for Norma, she will take care of you! :-)

My fiancé and I spent a night at La Casa del Camino. We choose it for its great location and value. We were pleased with the room, cleanliness, friendly service and the complimentary shuttle service they provided to take us to dinner the night of our stay.

Our one, major complaint was the shockingly bad "hot" breakfast that came with our package. For anyone that has eaten at the hotel's K'ya Bistro or The Rooftop, this was NOT the same level of culinary excellence. Cold, egg and veggie scramble, all the french toast was gone from the buffet, the sausages were not browned properly so they looked unappetizing and tables took ages to get cleared. Such a shame for a boutique property that excels in so many other ways. Wish we would have spent our morning in Laguna breakfasting at one of the many amazing options in town.

I travel to Laguna for business every month and have stayed in every hotel in this town. Casa Del Camino is my favorite by far. Like others have said in reviews here, Norma (who runs the front desk) is part of the hotel's secret. She is so incredibly helpful and welcoming ~ she always makes me feel like I am coming home, rather than going away! (The entire staff exudes warmth and seem genuinely happy to help as if they too feel a part of the "family" here.) The location of this place is perfect-stairs to the beach and without exception the best rooftop bar/restaurant in town- I( watch sunrise and sunset from the deck every day). The rooms are super cozy and clean without any of the cheap feeling "hotel-y" decorations or fixtures and excellent homemade breakfast buffet in outdoor courtyard. I love the vibe and the location, but I return every month for the 5 star service from Norma and team who cheerfully handle all of my special requests. If you want to get away from that awful "chain hotel" feeling and be treated like royalty, this is your place.

We stayed in Laguna for the night following a Christmas party and this hotel was perfectly located. Staff were very helpful and courteous in all respects. The room was small but bed comfortable. Breakfast was not huge in variety but was very tasty. At the suggestion of the check-in guy we asked for trays and took our breakfast up to the roof bar to enjoy the stunning ocean view.

I travel frequently for personal as well as business, and have high expectations for both. Casa exceeds my expectations each and every visit, and honestly just keeps getting better. The staff is warm and friendly, and always available. The rooms are spotless and uniquely designed. More importantly, they are incredibly comfortable and conducive to a great night sleep. The rooftop is the best spot in Laguna- 12 months a year. The food all around is superb, especially love the complimentary breakfast. The location and proximity to downtown Laguna and the beach is ideal. The only complaint I have is that at some point I have to check out of Casa. It is like a home away from home..... I absolutely love it.

First of all Norma at the front desk was amazing.
Everyone at the hotel was so sweet and nice. They genuinely seemed caring. My fiancé had just proposed that am and part of the surprise was the hotel for the night.
The room was small, but we weren't there to hang out in the room all day. It's just steps to the beach and the rooftop bar was magical. The restaurant downstairs is gluten friendly, which I loved. The prices were cheap, which my fiancé loved. The free breakfast in the am was really good. There was no need for us to leave the hotel at all. We spent a magical 24 hours without ever having to leave the hotel. Thank you Hotel Del Camino
