Great place to stay!

Posted Jun 28, 2014
Beautiful, old hotel in Laguna that we would stay in again. Comfortable room (not huge, not tiny) & super clean, out room key cards deactivated many times but the front desk fixed then right away. Free parking across the street from hotel. Free breakfast (eggs, bacon, toast, yogurt, oatmeal, etc) each morning before you head to the (free) beach. Stop by the front desk and sign out (free) towels, chairs and umbrella, which the staff carries down the many stairs to the beach for you. Nice hotel bar in lobby, great restaurants in hotel and in the area and the hotel has a rooftop bar that is great for watching the sunset. Make sure to read fine print though bc all the things you thought were free were actually included in a $14 daily resort fee. Not a big deal at all but would have been nice to know. All in all, a lovely little gem of a hotel. Definitely give it a try if you are looking to stay in the area. Great value, nice amenities and of course, a great location!

Historic hotel, great location, Party Central

Posted Jun 7, 2014
Pros: Historic, nice bar, great location and terrace overlooking the Pacific.
Cons: Let folks know how small the queen standard rooms are - ok for a single person, crowded for two.
Location: In Laguna Beach - access down the street to the beach. Tons of cafes and shopping all around.
This classic hotel has a great ambience, good coffee and breakfast, super roof-top terrace for drinks and nibbles; however, you must be able to be go with the flow of young folks having a good time. Our room (queen standard) was built when the bathroom was down the hall and renovated with it's own small bathroom (nicely tiled). So the room was so small that the bed's headboard was parallel to the mattress! It was nicely appointed, but difficult to walk around with two people in the room. We would ask for a larger and more expensive room next time. Yes, we are ok with a little noise and it was quiet after 10:00 pm. We would stay here again - hotel staff were very good and we like historic buildings.

Convenient Laguna location but a bit shabby.

Posted May 19, 2014
An old spanish style building of character but a little shabby. Great roof terrasse for cocktails. The tiny room was cramped with, in the room, free standing, air conditioning unit. The bathroom was too small for comfort. More importantly, the unlocked windows (literally no locks on windows) opening over the dumpsters, and easily accessible from the street made it impossible to leave anything in the room.

Great staff

Posted May 6, 2014
The staff was warm and welcoming! They were able to move up our dinner reservations bc we have a baby and were not able to get a table till 10 k'ya is a great restaurant! Also, our air conditioner wasn't working and they switched it out for a new one!! We are going back in a few months!!

Quaint & Friendly!!!

Posted Apr 29, 2014
Just stayed at this hotel for a friend's wedding and had a great time! The staff is wonderful, very helpful and make you feel at home. The hotel is older, but very quaint and very comfortable. The Rooftop Lounge is great- MOJITOS!! The Aji Poke appetizer is fabulous - and when it gets chilly, they give you a blanket! Bartender Pete is awesome and the view is gorgeous.

Rooftop bar overlooking the Ocean

Posted Apr 21, 2014
Pros: Location Roof terrace area Complimentary car parking
Cons: Bedroom lighting Noisy air conditioning
Location: Ocean views Shops & restaurants within walking distance Beach walks
Spanish style hotel located a short walk from the ocean & centre of Laguna. We had a partial ocean view room which had a noisy air con unit but it did cool the room! The hotel was in the process of being redecorated in the main rooms & hallways while we were there, some updating of the rooms is needed as the lighting in the bedroom was very dim & the bedside lights flickered. A very good breakfast was included in the room rate, this could be taken up to the roof terrace area which was very picturesque overlooking the ocean. The staff were helpful when needed.

Loved the Spanish theme!

Posted Apr 11, 2014
Great stay! Wish could have stayed longer. Room was clean, staff was kind. Definitely try the restaurant downstairs, K'ya. Food was delicious! Small plate style, for my boyfriend and I, we got 5 dishes which was more than plenty. Roof top was amazing and open to guests 24 hours.

Beach weekend.

Posted Mar 31, 2014
My boyfriend love Laguna and had talked about staying here several times. The hotel is adorable and very well kept and the location is great! The parking was a little challenging as there is very limited space for loading/unloading, but the lot for hotel guests was a very short walk. It was also a little difficult to park a full-sized SUV in the lot as the space was tight. The staff was wonderful and the location is perfect. Definitely recommend Rooftop and K'Ya!

Parent's 25th Anniversary Getaway

Posted Feb 11, 2014
I had paid for a room with a partial room and their room had no view at all. I spoke with an Expedia Rep about possibly providing a bottle of champagne in their room and they delivered, which was very nice. Hotel room is kind of small, expecially for a "suite". Parking is across the street, included. Breakfast was okay. Overall a nice place, lots of character.
