“Disappointing.”
Reviewed 10 September 2010

Staff nice on phone / at desk not very welcoming. Free parking caddy corner behind a building. Lobby loud for late Wed night. Room not where/what asked for - very small & main window opened to highway & above outdoor bar - not quiet. Quaint room/bed w/ceiling fan provided nice comfy sleep. Could not totally close bathrm window. Old TV set as if in dr's office. Although we already paid for 2 nts, packed up & decided to check out 1 day early at their normal time & voiced dissatisfaction w/person I booked over phone. She did refund for the next night, but I was surprised that since we were planned to stay 2 nights that she offered no other room nor asked what I would like instead/in lieu. Disappointing all around. Will not go there nor will I recommend this hotel. Word of mouth goes a long way.

If you are planning on partying all night this is the place for you because the music in the lobby plays until 2 am and you can hear it in every room. Also, the restrooms for the restaurant/bar are by the rooms so you have a line of drunks waiting outside your room to go to the bathroom and it smells like some did not want to wait any longer so just peed directly in the hallway. There is no seperation for the rooms so bar patrons wonder through the hallways at all hours of the day. I got 0 sleep the night I stayed here and will never return.

We have been to La Casa Del Camino on three occassions. We just love the hotel. We bring our two Yorkies and they are so nice to all of us. The service is wonderful, people are friendly and we love our room that looks onto the ocean. The staff is ownderful. They will take your chairs to the beach and pick them up for you. We go for my birthday and this year the owner sent me flowers, chocolate and champagne to our room. You are right off the beach, wonderful restaurant, great rooftop bar and clean quaint hotel.

Norma and Ashley have been wonderful.

We cant wait to go back again.

If you want quality service from the hotel staff, you will not find it here! Short mexican girl with glasses who claims to pose as the general manager is a joke! Has no skill in customer service.
Our group of 8 decided to leave when she told us not to park at the hotel parking area. This was a rude awakening when we had reservations and when we called the person who took the reservation told us to park there. Hmmm! Management smoking too much weed here?
It's a gamble here! Good luck!

We stayed at this hotel in June '10. We've been to many hotels in Laguna Beach and thought we'd give this one a try since we enjoy the restaurant K'ya in the hotel and the rooftop bar is a fun spot for a drink. Turns out, it was easy to stay here as we enjoyed the above and didn't have to leave the hotel, and the beach was just right below our room. Everything very easy to do without driving or stress....however, the room was terrible. The bed was lousy, the mattress must have been 100 yrs old. The sink for the bathroom was in our room and the shower and toilet in the "bathroom". The television looked to be from the mid-'90's and was mounted up in a corner of our room like it would be in a hospital. Basically, if you do stay here it's not to enjoy the room. It's for other reasons....
Apparently, they've redone 10 of the rooms, all with a different theme. If you want to spend 150+ more a night, you can have one of these rooms. For us, it wasn't worth it for this trip.
Not a bad hotel in terms of free parking, can bring a dog, great location on beach and good restaurant and bar in hotel. Room itself, if not updated, going to be a real let down if you are not prepared for it....

I will start with the good, it has a hopping fun bar scene and lots of charm, yet, since one of the main things you do at a hotel is sleep, I cannot recommend this hotel. It is the loudest place I have ever tried to sleep. When I complained, they said they only have a few quiet rooms, and they are all were taken. The one person bathrooms to one of the most popular bars are directly across the small hall from rooms 201 and 202. This means people are having conversations in the hall until it closes at 10. (meaning they are hanging out until about 11)
The roof top bar is accessed by walking thru all the hall ways and climbing the stairs. Meaning drunk people, and I have nothing against drunk people, are stomping thru your hallway. Additionally, the charming hard wood floors are not so charming at 7 am when some one above you is keeping you from your shut eye by merely walking.
Also the over flow to the bar is downstairs, right out side many of the windows to the hotel. The bar staff restocks at 8:30, and yes, they too are loud. It was ridiculous. Oh, and I forgot to mention the toilets that are as loud as an airplane toilet and the road traffic noise. Apparently trash pick up is everyday. For the love of God, stay away if you want ANY sleep.
I am all for being patient and understanding if there is an event, but here the noise is day and night. And, although the staff is very nice, they are powerless to help, except to adjust the price....sometimes all you want is sleep.
To sum up, if you are young enough to be nostalgic for your party and dorm days, or old enough to turn down your hearing aid, you may be able to tolerate this place. Please do not let the "charm" of the decor win you over you will regret it.
Do check out the roof top bar, it is worth the trip over from whatever hotel you stay at, and has a good happy hour 3-5 and a great sunset ocean view.
I have read the good reviews on this site, and must conclude that either they got one of the five "good rooms" or went mid week when the bars are not as popular.

Okay we stayed here for 5 nights, 3 in a regular queen sized room and 2 in the quiksilver suite. The regular room was great, a little small but still amazing for the price that we paid ($90 a night, you cant find a Days Inn for that price anywhere nowadays) and we did have our 11 mos old daughter with and she slept in our playpen but they did offer cribs. Again the only negative was it was a little small and it only had a shower, but overall it was very beautiful. We upgraded to the suite later cause they have 10 surf themed suites and it was only an extra $50 a night weekdays so it was totally worth it (the hubby loves surfing!). The suite was awesome, much more spacious and great views. Again, only had a shower but this one was huge! K'YA the in hotel bistro is freaking AMAZING! Seriously good high class food for ridiculous low prices. And the rooftop bar offers a view like no other, my only thing bout that is I would definitely hit it up during happy hour cause its much cheaper otherwise it ends up being a bit pricy but its happy hours falls around sunset in the winter so its the perfect time to go. We will go back there EVERYTIME we take a trip to visit the family in cali. again. Oh yeah and there a japanese place called Mosun, all you can eat for $22.00 on Mondays, right down the road...AWESOME!
